I don’t usually consider a day complete unless I learn something new, and if that’s the case, today is an overwhelming success. Forgive my ignorance, but apparently there’s a retailer in Britain named Ann Summers, and the company specializes in, among other things, vibrators. Vibrators, as you may know, are used by women for self-pleasure when they do not have a sexual partner available. And that completes today’s With Leather Sex Education seminar.
As is the case for so many companies in London – and around the world, I suppose, but mostly London – Ann Summers decided to take advantage of the 2012 Summer Olympics being in its back yard, and yesterday the company rolled out a very special tribute to the 15,000+ athletes competing in the London games – a 24K gold vibrator. Wanna buy it? Get out your f*cking check book.
The adult store have released a new sex toy made from 24-karat gold. But you might need the salary of an elite athlete in order to afford one as it comes with a price tag of £10,000.
The vibrator, called the Lelo Inez, was on display at Ann Summer’s Westfield Stratford store by the Olympic Park today. Soldiers drafted in to work at the London Games were amongst those curious to get a look at the sex toy which was being as closely guarded as an Olympic gold medal thanks to its high value. (Via The Daily Mail or whoever wrote it first)
That’s roughly $15,000, in case you’re unfamiliar with the exchange rate for dollars and pounds. I was, so I looked it up, and then I spit my coffee all over the place and screamed, “FOR A F*CKING VIBRATOR?!?!” I mean, that costs more than what most medal winners will earn for competing.
But hey, who am I to deny a woman’s Olympic spirit? Especially if she’s willing to let me watch her celebrate the Olympics. Settle down, it’s cool, we’re perverts.
