One ticket to Mars, please.
No, I don't need a return, one-way only, thank you.
What do you buy the woman that has everything? Something else, we would advise, and certainly not the latest cuddly sex toy hoping to find a place in the hearts (and between the legs) of women everywhere. Teddy Love is a "bear that will love you forever", or least until its AA batteries run out. It offers the sort of love …
I've never really considered myself a prude but what-the-f**k? (Or 'f**k-the-what?', I suppose . . .)
It seems like the 'problem' this is 'solving' is the conspicuousness of existing sex toys. The two points that come to mind are:
In other words, if you are having trouble fitting your vibrators in your bag (such that they don't stick out) then the solution is to get a bigger bag, not a bigger vibrator.
"Never had your bags searched at the airport? Everything (ahem) comes out. If you had toys, I suspect that might be embarrassing."
My post was aiming more at humour than a reasoned argument; evidently I failed.
To address your point, however, it's six or one-half dozen.
You get your bags searched and the people who have seen nearly everything (including their fair share of dildos, ball gags, butt plugs and nipple clamps) find your vibrator and silently continue on with their task.
You go through the metal-detector with your 'furry friend' and it sets it off. You then put the bear through the scanner where the operator pauses to scrutinise it, trying to figure out what those odd bits are inside. The operator calls over the supervisor and they point and trace their fingers across the screen for a bit and then take you to one side to question you about why you a carrying a teddy bear. Embarrassed, you lie and say it's a present for your daughter, despite it looking a bit worn out around the face. They then ask you why there are wires and electrical equipment running through the inside . . .
But, again, I was trying to be humorous as both problems are easily solved by simply popping anything your embarrassed about in your check-in luggage.
You've been able to buy adult versions of bath ducks for years, so I presume people buy them or they wouldn't be on sale.
Years ago I remember the girls in the office buying one of the guys a "Luv Ewe" as a present. Present intended to cause maximum embarrassment, except he thought it was hilarious, be happy with his Welsh heritage. I wonder how many of these will be bought as for hen parties to poke fun rather than have fun.
You're probably only going to recognise Sex Teddy in public if you own your own Sex Teddy. So I'm sceptical about the embarrassment.
The main things that I see wrong with it are that it doesn't exist yet and is a venture capital project, and that it probably doesn't really do anything technologically wonderful I mean, a Furby talks to you.
A toy rattlesnake with animated tail and tongue? Filled with warm water at body temperature. Suitable for male or female.
Similar to the Teddy - a severed male head - complete with a "Seven Veils" outfit. Without the latter it could be aimed at the "Militant Feminist" market segment.
Perfect props for Sunday School story illustrations too - switched off of course.
Presumably some of the scenes from "The Devils" have already been plundered for ideas?
Bad taste? Certainly - but when did anyone go broke catering for people's private fantasies (discretely)?
I've been in the adult products business (making and selling leather BDSM gear) for 20 years now and every time I think I've seen it all, someone comes up with a product that makes me go "I would never have thought of *that*!"
So don't be disappointed that you didn't think of this one...
