    Back in the early 80s/late 90s there was a real subculture in the UK and Europe based around following bands like New Model Army, The Levellers, Rosetta Stone, with their own traditions, fashions, rivalries (The one between the Militia, NMA's following, and the Eskimos, The Mission's following, probably the most notorious. It tends to fall undder the radar a bit, subsumed into goth or crusty, but is worth a look in its own right.

    This page on FB has a fantastic collection of photos, from back in the day and is well worth a look.

    I was going to say that #2 makes no sense because how could every senator know Yoda but if it just means they knew of Yoda then I am ok with this.

    You just gave JJ Abrams the script for ET 2.

    Oh they're not the first to think of that. Erika Moen tested a similar product on "Oh Joy, Sex Toy!" last year and she wasn't impressed.

    Yeah...it takes a lot of special conditions to make sure I go to sleep. Complete silence, reasonably low levels of light, and not really anything up my vagina. I move around a lot in my sleep, so that way paves the path to PAIN TOWN. Also annoying for anyone who has to wake up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom.

    Really, it's a fun idea, but impractical.

    It looks more like something you'd set and then slip inside a set of panties (I assume the nub bit is for your clit) rather than something you'd insert your body, although I'm sure that having something plastic pressed up against your vagina would probably be distracting enough to make it difficult to get to sleep.

    Oh, wasn't talking specifically about that. But yeah, even externally put in place with the labia it would be problematic.

    I'm just gonna voice that that seems pretty comfortable to me, although I'd rather not just trust my underwear to keep it in position. Maybe if it had a strap around your hips?
    Even something inserted and slept with seems more plausible (and also not uncomfortable).

    Totally not saying there isn't a market for it. We're all different after all.

    A strap around the hips I could actually probably live with.

    Yeah. I'd forsee the possibility of that thing sliding around in the night and ending up tucked in your butt crack. Which, now that I think about it, some people might be in to.
