Hustler magazine and Wal-Mart haven't had much in common over the years. After all, the megaretailer won't even carry Hustler's explicit publications. But now they have at least one area of overlap. As of this month, Wal-Mart will be selling Wet, a sexual lubricant that has been a staple for more than a decade at Hustler's adult product boutiques.
Only a couple years ago, anyone in search of adult novelties had to brave the local porn store or hop online and hope the packaging was discreet. But times have changed — and quickly. Today, you're just as likely to find a vibrator at your local drug store, local mall or Wal-Mart. And they're likely to become even more prevalent in the years to come. A large part of that has been because of the rise of high-end toys, which some couples see as an investment in their love life. Those numbers, though, came before manufacturers hit major market retailers. Now, they say, the sky's the limit.
Right next to the condoms, many a CVS, Duane Reade, or wherever you like to pick up a six-pack of TP and a candy bar sells bona fide sex toys. It's glorious. I love sex toy shops for the selection and informed salespeople who have heard and probably tried it all, but sometimes a trip to the drugstore is the most you can do. And why shouldn't you be able to snag a vibrator on your midnight tampon run? After admiring them on the shelves, though, I wondered how pleasurable these pleasure products could be.
Sexual satisfaction and pleasure play a major role in overall well-being. Experimenting with different ways to experience pleasure can be beneficial on your own or with a partner. Vibrators and adult toys can be used to create new sensations and experiences during solo play or during intimate moments with your partner.
