"Prime-time sexual lubricant commercials" says it all for '08. Those KY Yours+Mine lube ads featuring randy couples trying to fit sex into their daily lives while viewers at home were eating dinner made a solid statement: Sex toys are coming out of the closet in a big way. And guess what? This year, ladies, it's all about pleasing you with classic items built to last. Sex toys are shedding their porn-y image in favor of high-end design, couple's fun, and precision pleasure. Oh yeah, and keeping your body safe and healthy with products made from materials you can identify, like glass, wood, and natural plant extracts. The bottom line? Your goody drawer just took a page from Couture 101. Like Coco Chanel once said, "Innovation! One cannot be forever innovating. I want to create classics."
