the irish “sex toy” seems to be the same device in Joyce’s “Ulysses”. Bloom takes the box out of the draw and examines it. memories, dreams, reflections. a non-electric anal probe of some sort. a toy for him and Molly? i’ve forgotten. Steve
There was this programme on the tele recently where a very clever sex toy company got a group of sexually frustrated women to start a sort of support group. Part of the therapy was to get the women to design a sex toy. Then the women’s confidence really grew as they were told the best designs were going to be actually made into sex toys. The range that followed as a result became very, very successful. The company became even more successful, and what ever happened to the frustrated women, well, they probably bought the sex toys, for themselves, without a penny discount and got every family member who was given it as “their best ever present” to write a glowing review, so the sex toys companies sold more and more. So I’ve decided to do exactly the same for men. Only joking I’m going to make sure that that never happens again. If you are thinking about designing a sex toy for women, forget it, that market is to controlled. Design a sex toy for men, the big sex toy companies are absolutely desperate. each and everyone of them.
