“I’m 57 years old. I should be able to get a vibrator!” declared Linda Postell, who was among hundreds of women (and men!) waiting in the heat on Pearl Street only to be left unsatisfied.

Well, gee whiz, lady, no one says you can't BUY one for yourself! Moron!

I suppose sometime before the days of Absalom (2 Samuel 16:21-23).

LOL!

Well, I was thinking a bit more recently. Like the 40's and fifties.

I'm not saying it never occurred, but people back then seemed to have a better idea of what the 'civil' in civil behavior was all about, IMHO

Or are you just implying that I'm old?

She doesn't even have to be seen buying one. Internet, baby!

Funny panel cartoon I saw a long time ago:

Mr. Delivery Man greets woman outside her home and says, while handing her a package wrapped in plain brown paper, We promised it would come in a plain brown wrapper! No need for embarrassment!

In the driveway? A huge delivery truck with "ACME Sex Toys" emblazoned on the side.
