Tired of American politics? Want a diversion? Become a Sex Toy Tester. (Not safe for work, unless this is your work.)

Damnit, I knew there was a catch! "You must live in the UK and testing is currently for UK only."

Like the English know anything about butt plugs!

not only do you have to be in the UK but they want you to pay 10 pounds

Sure, it sounds like fun, but I'll bet you get sick of it after a while...

Just the site design is enough to cause impotence.

I know someone who works for a local sex product catalog operation (if you know any of them, you probably know this one) and they pride themselves on only selling products they've tested and approved. Her husband should get a commission or something.

I hope they at least wash them.

What I want to know is, why do sex gadgets either have to look like raver toys or gestapo tools?

I think someone should start a friendly-yet-elegant Martha Stewart-esque sex toy line and make a mint. You know, something decorative in a nice pastel or plaid. You could even make a seasonal line for thoughtful holiday hostess gifts.

WhAT'S all tghs hullabaloo about becmojng a "Tex Soy Tster" ?

The "gestapo tools" link is priceless. The name of the depth charge just kills me. Also, I've seen some reasonably reasonable looking toys in marble-looking designs and what have you. So the world isn't totally void of tasteful dildos.

You're right, we should stick to what we know: whips, stocks, restraints ... [NSFW]

Someone want to donate to my "Help Katemonkey be a sex toy tester" fund?

Because, dude, it's sad how poor I am that I can't even afford the 10 quid for this.

mwhybark -- yes, that's much better: what with airport security being what it is these days, it's easy to imagine one of those tumbling out of your weekend bag without one of those uncomfortable silences. You could easily palm it off as a small decorative vase. The French names are an especially nice touch: Mademoiselle, je vous présente avec le jolie. Bonne chance!
