Would You Pay $175 For Shorts? What About Use a Male Vibrator?

Yesterday, Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest GOOP newsletter appeared in my inbox. I glossed over it, like I usually do when the topic isn’t food, and noticed that she was providing discounts to GOOP readers. That’s me! I scrolled down to the first offer and voila—a pair of cute sporty looking shorts. This pair could be mine during this exclusive offer. They are $175 at 15% off.

That’s right—175 dollar shorts. I hear you can also procure 8 pairs for $175 at Old Navy. Thanks again for the dose of reality, Gwyn.

I scrolled down to the next GOOP sale item: cute Turkish bath towels. Only $29!!! at 10% off!! That would seem a little more reasonable if Gwyn hadn’t felt the need to boast that she bought 20 last summer, presumably for the vacation house.

I bought four towels from Target four years ago. We’re still using them. Sigh. My love/hate relationship with GP continues.

On another note, I’ve been reading about this male vibrator now on the market. First off, you will note that it looks oddly like a flat iron. Eeeks! And second off, I keep wondering, do men really need more help getting off? I though there was already a whole industry devoted to that. You know, the porn one. But I suppose I shouldn’t deny a man his right to battery-operated stimulation. For if someone asked me at gunpoint for my wallet or vibrator, I might well fork over my ID and credit cards. Still, I’m guessing this one is not going to be a best seller.

Side note: I just read this article, which states that the vibrator is intended for those with ED, “including those undergoing rehabilitation after a prostatectomy, or those with spinal cord injuries.” Now don’t I feel like an a-hole.

Just like Gwyneth would if she thought about all the poor people reading her blog.
