Social and cultural conservatives were shockedandappalled to learn that seventeen-year-old Taylor Momsen owns a vibrator—my goodness, that young lady isn't even old enough to walk into the kind of shop where they sell those sorts of things! Or as Fox News delicately put it: Momsen "is not legally of age to enter venues that sell sexual paraphernalia." (She is, however, of legal age to consent to sex in New York.) But vibrators—now a thoroughly mainstream consumer product—aren't just sold in sex shops anymore. As a regular Slog reader points out...

In re: Vibrators, and Taylor Momsen, whoever she is, and the appropriateness of her having one... being a suburban family, we get suburban catalogs, like Solutions, which is a kind of Brookstone for middle-class, middle-aged homeowners... special gloves to help you open jars, junk drawer organizers, super-Swiffers. So I was a little surprised, and pleased, to come across this page. In the paper version, the page says at the top: "The doctor says: 'Use it or lose it!'" and goes on to describe the health benefits of regular... uh... intimate massager use.—Peter Sagal

Amazon also has a nice selection of vibrators. So young ladies who require vibrators don't need to be of legal age to enter venues that sell sexual paraphernalia. All they need is Internet access and a credit card.
