‘Kosher’ dildos? Sex toys increasingly marketed to religious crowds
Did you know that you can get kinky while still worshiping the Lord? It’s true, according to a new and somewhat perplexing online trend: religious sex toy shops.
On Friday night’s “The Young Turks,” Current TV hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian made light of the subject, which was recently examined by The Daily Beast.
Uygur observed that there are currently at least four sites marketing adult products to Christians: Book 22, Hookin’ Up Holy, Intimacy of Eden and Covenant Spice.
“I like that one,” Kasparian said of the last shop. “That’s a good name.”
“Well, Book 22 has some rules,” Cenk added. “They won’t sell condoms or anal products. I don’t make the rules, I’m just telling you.”
Other shops, aimed at Jewish and Muslim customers, struck a different tone. “Kosher Sex Toys” is one; “El Asira” is another. While “El Asira” does not sell any actual motorized toys, they do specialize in massage products and lubricants, Cenk noted.
“They’re very Sharia compliant, which I love,” Kasparian joked.
