Amazon lubricates sales with sex toys
Iain Thomson writes in vnunet.com:
Amazon has started selling sex toys on its website as part of a drive to broaden its product range.
Visitors to the US Amazon.com site can now choose from 37,000 items in the Sex and Sensuality sub-section. The current best selling items are lubricants and condoms, with no vibrators making it into the top 100 best sellers.
A spokeswoman for Amazon.co.uk confirmed the move but said there were no plans to introduce a similar section for UK customers.
She emphasised that the items were part of the Health and Personal Care section and would be treated as such.
