Wooooooowwwww...

I just got my first email spam from a sex toy company located in Pakistan.

Pakistan.

Now let's think about that for a moment. Pakistan, a deeply Muslim country currently engaging in a low-level civil war with the Taliban, which is arguably the single most repressive religious entity the world has ever seen. And a company in Pakistan is offering to sell me, wholesale, stainless steel knockoffs of NJoy sex toys.

Anyone want to start a betting pool about how long before the guy (and I guarantee it is a guy; women are barely able to leave the house in much of Pakistan) who owns this company is assassinated?

There's something a little surreal about the notion of a sex toy company in Pakistan.

I don't know why, but for some reason my mind jumped to:

"NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition!"

*chuckle*

That said, I'd be careful before assigning that title, especially if you compare it to various cults over the years and so on.

Of course, the Taliban are more than happy to sell the west heroin, and let the infidels fall by their own vices.

If it was Al'Queda or Taliban branded I'd be all there.

FYI - Pakistani stainless steel isn't stainless at all. It's horrible quality b/c it is made mostly from recycled everything and stains (read: rusts) quite easily.

NO WAY I'm putting Pakistani steel it near my vag.

Aren't Kub restraints made in Pakistan? There's a lot of these available on eBay; I even own a few.

I dunno, Syria's almost as repressive (I think...could be mistaken) and apparently they have a thriving industry making crazy kinky exotic lingerie. Apparently sexual expression is perfectly okay, as long as it takes place between married couples behind closed doors.

I guess they as a country are moving forward... one pelvic thrust at a time.

Sorry. It's been an odd day. - ZM
