Happy National Masturbation Month! To celebrate, Goop has supplied us with a list of their favorite sex toys, some to be used alone, some to be used in tandem, but in the grand Goop tradition, all mindbogglingly more expensive than you would regularly pay for a dildo. But then again, what else would you expect from Goop?
Honestly, it’s not a bad idea to invest in a good sex toy. It’s immeasurably preferable than buying them used on Craigslist. But for those of us out of Goop’s targeted tax bracket, here’s what you can get for the price of their most outlandish suggestions.
1) Weapons of Mass Seduction, Free
Well, not exactly free, since presumably you need to pay for the paper and ink needed to print out the cards (and the printer), but other than that, this is the cheapest option. Still, for the price of this card game, you could just have sex right now.
2) Crave Duet Lux 8GB, $219
This sex toy is plated in 24k gold, features 8GB of USB storage, and can be engraved. You know what that sounds like? An iPod Touch, which’ll set you back just $199 for the 16GB one.
3) Kiki de Montparnasse Droplet Necklace/Nipple Clamps, $395
This discreet necklace doubles as nipple clamps, because obviously those trinkets needed to be a two-in-one. Or you could get into some Ted Cruz-honeymoon cosplay and buy 316 cans of Cream of Mushroom soup on Amazon.4) Agent Provocateur Cat Whip Black/Gold, $535
For the price of one black-and-gold whip, you can buy yourself: One Indiana Jones novelty whip ($6.46), 1 DVD of the hit film Whip It ($17.98), 1 case of 600 whip cream chargers ($199), 1 30 oz. jar of Miracle Whip ($2.99), and about 20 bottles of Perfect Whip face wash.5) LELO Inez, 24 kt gold sex toy, $15,000
Yup, you read right. $15,000. For that, take your pick of some of the crazier things out of the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog. The aquatic gymnasium? The world’s loudest ping pong table? Whatever a “Cold War Doppelfernrohr” is?
Can't wait to see what Goop does for Shameless Promotion Month.
