Is it just me? What next, vibrators in M&S?

Oh don’t be a prude. They’ve sold this kind of thing for years.

They’re not a (children’s) toy shop.

Boots have been selling sex toys since 2004.

Fwiw Poundland have had bullet vibrators on the shelves in the recent past too.

Imagining OP going to clutch her Pearls only to discover they are anal beads...

Boots is a chemist, no? Not Smyths Toys.
If it was the latter you might have a point.

You can buy a vibrating cock ring in Sainsburys 😱

It took me 3 minutes to get that! 😂

It’s hardly prudish to say that sex toys don’t need to be on display in boots or any other shop which isn’t designed for the purpose.

There’s a reason why lovehoney advertise after the watershed.

Would look nice hang up in the window, catch the light quite nicely 😏

Just looked and 60 other people are also viewing the item (probably all mumsnetters)

TabithaTittlemouse · 04/10/2022 18:46

They sell lube and condoms too. Absolutely shocking!

Why would you look at a chemist for children’s Christmas presents?

vodkaredbullgirl · 04/10/2022 18:46

I was in Boots today must have missed that shelf Smile

It's a joke!

The OP posts a link to anal beads and I can't mention things up arses?

Hate to think what ads I'll be getting on my feed now I've clicked that!!!

LadyMonicaBaddingham · 04/10/2022 18:47

Rather those than a bottle of the fucking anti-ageing moisturiser that were pushing as the ideal gift a few year back....

kids wont have a clue what they are, they're hardly going to be scared for life.
it's one of those things where it's not inappropriate to have on the shelf in a shop because anyone too young won't have a clue.

16 year old DD just got a Christmas Job at Boots … she’s quite the innocent, so this will be an eye opener for her

Bet the M&S vibrator is a cut above. Probably makes you breakfast the next morning.
