German sex object
We just came back from spending Easter in beautiful Berchtesgarden, in the Bavarian Alps, in southern Germany.
I'll be writing more about the trip very soon, but in the meantime, I wanted to share something curious that I came across in a public toilet in Konigsee, a small village near Berchtesgaden famous for its emerald-green lake.
One side of this vending machine dispensed condoms, for those fortunate enough to have a partner.
The other side dispensed something called a Travel Pussy ("The Artificial Vagina"), a product aimed, it seems, at the lonely but no less libidinous.
The cost? Four euros each, or about $6.25. (As a friend of mine said, incredulously, didn't that activity used to be free?!)
I did not make a purchase, but from what I gather, the device consists of a plastic bag within another plastic bag. The outer bag is filled with warm water. The inner bag is then filled with, well, you get the idea.
The kit even contains a small amount of lubricant.
Safe sex, indeed.
No beating around the bush (so to speak) with the name of the product, though. The Germans have never been accused of subtlety.
