"In many ways, choosing a sex toy is not unlike buying a car."
Chip: "I disagree. Any time I ask the owner of a sex shop if I can 'test-drive' the pocket pussies, they always refuse."
"As the green movement makes its way into the bedroom, low lighting is a must--to conserve electricity--but so are vegan condoms, organic lubricants and hand-cranked vibrators."

Chip: "What do vegan condoms taste like? Tofu?"
"Walker recently attended her first Tupperware-style pleasure party, thrown by Oregon-based Earth Erotics, where the goods for sale included organic massage oils and whips made of recycled inner tubes."

On Tuesday, we mis-identified the author of "The Moon For Its Citizens" as Drakkar Sauna's Jeff Stoltz, but the actual author is Drakkar Sauna's Wallace Cochran. We apologize for any confusion. In response to that article, we also misquoted Chip as saying "I think I'm going to skip it [the book reading at the Raven] and reread Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol again instead." What Chip actually said was "I think I'm going to stay home and beat off while watching Hercules vs. the Moon Men instead."
