Canadians, Third to Legalize Gay Marriage, First to Sell Vibrators in Drug Stores!
I've been a very busy bloggista today, too much to blog about..
Everyone knows that I did the Vagina Monolgues (and if you don't, you do now).
I did the "vagina facts". one of them is that it is illegal to sell vibrators or anything sex toy related in Alabama.
Compare Alabama to my home and native land....

are Canadians obsessed with vibrators? According to the 2004 Durex Global Sex Survey, the answer is a resounding yes. In fact, 39% of Canadians, both male and female, report already owning a vibrator. The ownership rate throughout the rest of the world is 27%. Interestingly, it seems that sexual exploration increases with age. Ownership jumps to 51% among Canadians 25-34, and tops out at 61% among respondents aged 44-55.

Let me just say first of.. I LOVE my vibrator. I won't expound. Well maybe later...

Clearly, there is a substantial demand for these products in Canada. To meet this demand, Durex(R) has launched a new line of personal massagers under the brand name Play(TM). These massagers are now available in London Drugs stores across British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, marking the first time that personal massagers have been available in mainstream retail drug stores. Stephanie Mitelman, a certified sexuality educator and president of Sexpressions, which offers sexual health prevention workshops across Canada, thinks that's good news for couples. "We seem to be increasingly more open to exploring our sexual desires and experimenting with having a little more fun in the bedroom," said Mitelman. "The availability of these massagers on mainstream retail shelves is an opportunity for men and women to connect in new ways and celebrate the freedom to enjoy personal massage."

The drugstore did so well that they couldn't keep them on the shelves.
They are $70 a piece, plus tax. Would you like to be introduced?

* Ellipse -- body-contoured design makes it easy to control and use anywhere
* Luna -- designed to be rolled all over the body in a sweeping caress that relaxes tense muscles (and save for internal)
* Little Gem -- slips comfortably between your fingers offering a precision massage at your command

My favorite? Little Gem.. The size and shape of the soft, curved pad have been designed specifically for your clitoris and labia. A flexible tip at one end creates a delicate fluttering sensation – a little like gentle, rhythmical licking.

Hell yea!!

For the record, I don't work for Durex.
I am however very excited of the thought of any woman in canada being able to walk into a drug store and buy a vibe, the packaging is discreet and the design is as well. Your kids find it? Who cares? its mommy's massager enough said. no need to go into detail, since it doesn't look like traditional vibes.

One small step for Canada, one giant leap for Womankind!

Why couldn't you buy one...okay, I can see the ones shaped like big rubber penises, in clear plastic displays. I wouldn't want to have to discuss that with a 2 year old.

But those other kind, that look kinda like curling irons? I thought they sold those at Sears. No? What gives?

hells yea, but these ones perform like the ones that look like tongues and big rubber penises but look like they might carry an electric toothbrush, or might help to get out a nasty stain.

curling iron ones? The ones at sears are called neck massagers or some such nonsense and aren't always approriate for a woman's tenderly area....

See, this is why I love my country. Obviously, this Drug Store Chain has seen a consumer and health upside to this product, and has decided that women can take control over their own sexual desires. Novel concept eh?

Contrast that with Alabama - I mean, c'mon. Having been there, I can say it's a nice place, but to acutally make selling sex toys a crime? That state has so many honest-to-god problems, I can't imagine how this even got on their radar. Imagine being the one in prison for selling a dildo - they'll probably make you share a cell with the couple who had sex outside of the Missionary position!

So, to sum up - Go London Drugs! Let's get the rest of the country doing this as well!

$70 is pretty expensive though. I tend to support local women-run shops like Good For Her and they sell me pretty decent stuff for far less than that. A friend of mine bought me a "rabbit," which cost more than I can afford but man oh man, rabbits are my new best friend.

Blogger Knitty Kitty said...

I've shopped at "Good for her" and "come as you are" (another female run sex shop) and they are great, but they can be expensive to for the higher quality stuff (like a rabbit) and even lesser things (like a pocket rocket!).

The point is that a woman in a small town that has a "london drug" or maybe soon other durg stores as well, will now be able to buy one.
With this normalizing of the vibe, its only a matter of time before cheaper vibes are available in drugstores as competition.
