It doesn't show what you bought.

"It's all toys for the love." Nice.

I find the Home and Garden Show much more interesting...

Until I have myself a sex robot, adult entertainment technology will remain the same as it has for years. Nothing new under the unflattering fluorescent porn-shop lights.

Holy shit! Attractive people at the Adult Entertainment Convention. The last guy with the British accent - don't know if I'm interested in his product, but I think I could be convinced to buy him if he were for sale.

If only the technology were advanced enough to make bacon covered sex robots.

Come on, No. 3, can't you see the giant stone dildo fountain in the reflecting pool of your formal garden?

Posted by NapoleonXIV | January 18, 2008 10:53 AM

Nope. Too difficult to keep the neighbors from sitting on it.

I'd only fuck a robot if it looked like C3-PO.

Posted by Mike in MO | January 18, 2008 11:13 AM

I would have let Ash from Alien fuck me.

We are spreading love. Look at the Thighmaster!

This was epic. I don't know about the urethra thing though. That word scares me, urethra.

Mr. Poe: What about Bishop from Alien II?

Posted by Mike in MO | January 18, 2008 11:48 AM

Gross. Hell no.

Posted by Mr. Poe | January 18, 2008 11:56 AM

It's Aliens, you uncultured swine.

Posted by Greg | January 18, 2008 12:00 PM

What Greg said.

Cool. I learned something new. I learned that people actually shove steel rods into their urethra. I think I'd rather vote Bush into a third term before I'd be willing to stuff a steel rod into my urethra, but whatever turns your crank, I suppose.

I did find it a little odd that some people obviously assumed you were straight, Dan, and that the dildo-like toys would only be used by women. You'd think that anyone who has spent more than a half hour in a sex-toy shop would know that probably half the dildos are sold to gay men.

I'm kind of fascinated (not that fascinated) by the thing that looks like a giant black rocket propelled grenade.

It's a sex toy!
It's a weapon of mass destruction!
It's a sex toy and a weapon of mass destruction!

Can you imagine if a gym had yoga balls like that, and the thigh master sex toy? I'll bet more people would go to the gym, which might help the rate of obesity in America go down! We need stuff like that in our gyms....for the good of the country, of course!

Posted by Anna | January 18, 2008 1:24 PM

I kinda feel sorry for straight guys. Many of the dildos are gorgeous (especially the stone and steel ones). Like little sculptures; you just want to touch them. But I've never seen a fake pussy that wasn't gross.

@20 They'd have to use gallons of bleach every day, or better yet just sell everybody their own personal equipment.

@21 Sleeves can't really be made out of steel or stone, obviously. That leaves various kinds of rubber. On the bright side, most guys aren't as concerned with look as much as feel.

Urethral sounds were called sounds because they were originally used to open up the urethra of men and women. Before antibiotics, contracting a venereal disease often lead to scarring of the urethral tract, which could cause painful strictures.The sounds were used to gently stretch open these strictures. The process was called sounding, so named because you were "sounding the depths".

@11, 12, 13 Are "replicants" robots? Only eight years and one month to wait I'd marry Rachel (Huckabee didn't say anything about robots did he?) and If I had to die, having Pris break my neck with her thighs would be how I'd want to go.

@8, thanks Napoleon, it's nice to have some context, the thought of "father-son granite dildo teams" was a little too disturbing for me to watch the video myself.

Posted by Epimetheus | January 18, 2008 3:03 PM

I was surprised that the majority of people interviewed seemed to be of non-US ancestry, judging by their voices/appearances. Is that typical, or is the video skewed?

Posted by Wolf | January 18, 2008 4:15 PM

DAN, when speaking with the stone dick guys, you said "toxins in silicone" products and stuff like that.

I think that silicone, glass, stone, steel, etc were all the preferred materials for sex toys because they do NOT have/leach toxins.

The problem materials are the ones like some jelly rubbers, etc that have phalates and other toxins, which silicone doesn't I right?

Just trying to clear silicone's rep.
