I stopped by Good Vibrations on Friday. GV reminds me of this recently-closed bookstore in San Francisco called A Clean Well-Lighted Place For Books. Why? Because I’ve always thought that GV should be called A Clean Well-Lighted Place for Sex Toys. Or — if you can’t picture that — try, a large Starbucks selling dildos and lubrication products instead of drip coffee and lattes.
Got a good visual now?
“But there’s no one in the store,” I said to the woman behind the register.
She smiled apologetically. “I know. But we have to respect people’s privacy.”
O-kay. Am I the only one confused here?
Never mind. That’s not important. You can check out the neat store here. What is important is the information she gave me about today’s products.
But, before we go there, I need you to play a game of pretend. Pretend this heat wave is not making you feel like you live in hell. Instead, you are surrounded by snow-covered mountains, holed up in a cabin with someone that you want to be holed up with, and a fire is blazing in the hearth …
Got a good visual? Good. Now you’re ready to play.
Raspberry Vanilla Body Dust – Apply this powder to the skin with the accompanying feather and lick it off. Fun for both giver and receiver. (Retail price: $18.00)
Soy-Based Massage Candle – Not only is the rosemary mint scent fragrant, as the candle melts the liquid becomes massage oil. Since soy burns at a lower temperature, the oil will not be too hot to pour directly from the candle onto the skin. Neat, huh? (Retail price: $10.00)
Simply add a comment to this post — either answer the question in the title -or- say whatever you want.
On August 22nd, I’ll randomly choose two winners (one for each product) – i.e. I’ll write the names of those who comment on scraps of paper, put them in a jar, shake, and recruit someone to draw two names. I’ll then post the names of the winners here and winners will need to email me their mailing address.
The Fine Print:
The only requirement of the winner is that (s)he agrees to be a guest blogger and write a product evaluation. The evaluation can be solely impressions of the product or it can include a story about the use – humorous (i.e., mishaps) or serious. It can be several sentences or several paragraphs – whatever it takes to get the point across. At a minimum, the evaluation should include the answers to these questions:
1. Did the product live up to the description here and/or on the product packaging?
2. What did you like about the product (if anything)?
3. What did you dislike about the product (if anything)?
4. How did it taste? (only if the product is edible!)
5. How did it feel on the skin?
The product evaluation should be submitted to me via email within 30 days of the receipt of the product.
Ready? Set? … Let the comments come in!
