If they find it, they’ll play with it

A few years ago a couple came into the shop, and as I was ringing them up one of them said something about where they could hide their new vibrator from their kids.

“We could keep it in the gun safe.”

“No, we need to find somewhere more secure. They know how to get into the gun safe already.”

All said with a perfectly straight face. No irony. Someone out there is more worried about kids finding sex toys than they are about them finding guns. Sounds familiar, right?

I was reminded of that couple today because of this ad that has caused a bit of a buzz (pun!) …

The ad comes from Evolve, an organization that aims to reduce gun violence through firearm safety without taking a stand on the issue of gun control. While the tagline “If they find it, they’ll play with it.” is poignant and humor is often a great conversation starter, I’m a little disappointed that the humor is couched in sex toy stigma.

That said, here are some ideas for discreet toy storage  😉
