Apple Unhappy With iPod As Sex Toy Enabler
It seems the iPod is becoming a very popular sex toy enabler. First, it was Soft Paris which released its Oh My God-inducing OhMiBod iPod plug in that, well, plugs in to a woman to deliver that special Oh My God feeling. Now we have sex toy retailer Ann Summers marketing a similar device, called the iGasm, with posters that look identical to the famed Apple silhouette campaign.
Apparently Apple doesn't want to be associated with female pleasure and have gone all legal on Ann Summers' ass with cease and desist orders. In an effort to lighten things up over at Apple, Ann Summers' Jacqueline Gold said, "Perhaps I can send them an iGasm to put a smile back on their faces!" Indeed.
Surely Apple can't be anti-orgasm. Surely they know a product like this is marketable to, oh, every single female in the entire world. Surely they know demand for a product like this has a shelf life of, oh , forever. Surely they can't be to upset that, oh, maybe one or two people might actually buy an iPod just to play with this toy? Surely they'd be fans of any increase in sales that might bring. But no, brands must be protected. Lawyers must make money. Fun must not be had.
