Or are these totally appropriate?

Just looking for stocking fillers/Christmas presents and saw these for sale in a clothes shop.

SoulStew Tue 07-Nov-17 13:17:32

I think so. Women are not toys. And, the fact that breasts have been reduced to joke-shop standards of treatment is depressing.

Yeah, they are appropriate if Jim Davidson is your comedy hero, and you hate the recipient.

Crunchymum Tue 07-Nov-17 13:19:30

who would you be giving them to? confused

I'd rather have an empty stocking. They're horrible. They'd go straight in the bin* in the conyo house.

* special bin that is parked up the road every saturday for recycling random crap.

Fairly sure the stress boob thing has been around for years.

elQuintoConyo Tue 07-Nov-17 13:21:18

Could you just buy normal handwarmers? I'd use them.

StaySexyDontGetMurdered Tue 07-Nov-17 13:22:27

I don't love them but don't think they should not be sold. I see just as many penis joke gifts to counteract the breast ones.

I don't know why anyone would want to buy them though confused

They are horrible, in the same vein as penis shaped stuff that seems to dominate every hen night.

I'd happily receive them and then shove them down the throats of the giver to warm their bloody innards. Terrible tat that'll contribute to landfill.

They seemed to be missing the men’s ball shaped stress balls and penis hand warmers! grin

MorrisZapp Tue 07-Nov-17 13:27:06

Nobody wants those. They'll be bought for secret santas and left on the table at Indian buffet restaurants. They are literally garbage.

@SoulStew

I think you missed the point. I get the feeling you make a habit of it!

I wouldn't buy them as I have taste but I can't see how they're remotely offensive.

BatteredBreadedOrSouthernFried Tue 07-Nov-17 13:29:43

A testicles shaped stress ball could be very useful during child birth grin

LittleMe03 Tue 07-Nov-17 13:34:16

I wouldn’t buy or want them... but it’s just a bit of a joke and I don’t know why anyone would be offended by something like this hmm

toffeepumpkins Tue 07-Nov-17 13:38:26

They would be a good present for Benny Hill, other than that no, they are totally unacceptable.

StaySexyDontGetMurdered Tue 07-Nov-17 13:45:00

I really want an Indian buffet now.

Nousernameforme Tue 07-Nov-17 13:55:35

See I would be in the wouldn't buy them but don't worry me camp normally. However in my asd parents group there have been a few of the kids using the stress boobs and finding them quite soothing.

So I am considering getting one for DS's stocking not quite sure i will be able to go through with it though

SoulStew Tue 07-Nov-17 13:57:32

Really *liveat’, how have I missed the point? I don’t think they are appropriate. I gave some reasons. Not seeing how I have missed anything, here or wherever else you have seen me confused

maddiemookins16mum Tue 07-Nov-17 14:08:12

Soul, I think your first answer was confusing at first but it's clear to me it was a typo by reading the rest of your post.

WrittenandGrown Tue 07-Nov-17 14:09:18

Nasty but I bet they sell loads. There is a type of person who would think that hilarious.

PoppyPopcorn Tue 07-Nov-17 14:12:20

Guess what we'll be seeing a lot of in the donation bags at the charity shop come first week in January...

sweetdreamsaremadeofbees Tue 07-Nov-17 14:12:55

Who cares?

Are you offended by everything?

JacquesHammer Tue 07-Nov-17 14:40:36

Who cares?

Anyone who objects to the objectification of women?

@ nousernameforme

I’d would never have thought of that use for them
