The Pleasure Pad

You know how you can be innocently enjoying something, and all of a sudden, a stray thought wafts by, does a hard left bank at the last moment, and purposely nosedives into your gentle thoughtscape, spreading destruction and opening a crater deep enough that the sewer of your mind erupts . . .

Anyway -- the errant thought concerned why the ad states: "a live model" instead of: "a woman," or "a live female model" or . . .

I'll never, now, be able to shake the mental image of a teenaged boy with gynecomastia wondering how he can raise some quick cash for corrective surgery. So he makes a mold of the 'offending' protuberance, takes it to an f/x artist who works in latex, and they start hawking copies.

They couldn´t have found a bigger model?

Remember the old saw that applies here, F.U.D.: "Anything more than a mouthful is wasted."

I’m sure lots of executives have these sitting on their desks in 2022…

@KDP: that's attributed to Casanova - in fact, I seem to recall reading it in one part of his memoirs, but that was decades ago and as a teenager I was paying more attention to other parts - and in any case, it's a handful, not a mouthful.

Quidquid id est, I really don't think it's the same without the rest of the woman attached.
