Shopping for that special great aunt or uncle*? How about a sex toy?
Fresh from winning an award for being “senior-friendly,” the owner of Babeland on Bergen St. in Park Slope appeared on Brooklyn Paper Radio to report that seniors are still going strong between the sheets.
“It’s not our core audience, but we see plenty of seniors,” Claire Cavanah told radio hosts Gersh Kuntzman of the NY Daily News and Vince DiMiceli of the Brooklyn Paper. “Seniors have the advantage of having more time to do it right, whether they are alone or together.”
Yes, it was the hottest episode of Brooklyn Paper Radio since filmmaker Michael Moore admitted that he watched the latest “Star Wars” movie alone. In a wide-ranging talk, Cavanah, a longtime friend (without benefits) of The Brooklyn Paper also revealed:
• The newest and hottest product on her shelves is “The Womanizer,” a horribly named sex toy that not only stimulates a woman’s clitoris with vibration, but also with suction. DiMiceli worried that such a product could lead to the elimination of men entirely, if it falls into the wrong hands. But Cavanah disagreed.
“Men who buy sex toys for their spouses show that they are giving and caring,” she said.
• The best product for men is a finger-shaped vibrator that is inserted in the rectum.
“If you haven’t used it, you don’t know what you’re missing,” Cavanah said as both hosts reiterated that they had, in fact, never used such a device.
“I’d be willing to use it,” Kuntzman said, “though not with Vince. I’m comfortable with my sexuality and I have always said Vince is a handsome man, but I do not want to have sex with him.”
“He really is a fox,” the openly gay Cavanah chimed in.
“Well, there you have it, Vince: Two people who only like to have sex with women find you attractive,” Huntsman quipped.
• Some men use a “velvety” sleeve to pleasure themselves, Cavanah added to much concern from Kuntzman.
“The day Vince DiMiceli needs a sex toy to masturbate is the day civilization ends,” he said.
