The Recession Is Good For Business At Sex Shops

Bonnie Fuller wrote yesterday on The Moment blog about how the recession is affecting people’s sex lives, a topic we have explored before. So, are hard economic times helping people’s sex lives?

    Today is Earth Day, so we asked the ladies at Babeland how to have a sex life that will make you and the planet happy.

  • Use rechargeable toys. The days of AA batteries are over. Rechargeable toys are at full capacity in an hour or two and can last for two to four hours of use. If you do use batteries, recycle them. (Babeland will even recycle them for you, just bring the batteries to one their stores.)
