Would You Like Paper, or Plastic?

No longer relegated to adult book stores, in-home parties, and the internet, consumers can look to spice up the action at home with a simple trip to the corner store. Walgreen's has joined CVS, Osco, and Albertson's in offering shelf-space for sexual "health and wellness" products, which are generally limited to vibrating rings, for now. Here's a truffle quote from Carol Carrozza, vice president of marketing for device-maker, LifeStyles:
The time has come, because of the influx of Generation Y - who has grown up with
condoms in their lives - to take some sexual-enhancement products and put them
on mainstream retailers' shelves. Now, people are more comfortable going to the
store shelf and looking for it. They don't have to go into the brown-bag world
and find these products.

But wait, there's more:
It's a part of the desensitization process," she said. "Now that retailers have
created sections, like sexual health and wellness, they are more open and
receptive. This is the first of many more ... to come.

I have to presume pun is intended. Be that as it may, we have more proof we are finally "growing up." Oh, goody.
