Cheap Thrills - Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sex Toy Deals

By November 22, 2010

Follow me on:

I often think about what gets lost in the barrage of shopping talk and actual shopping that happens this time of the year. Most of us are so inured to capitalism, so beaten down by neoliberal ideas of consumption as emancipation, that we act as if the only cost of what we buy is the money flying out of our wallets, our bank accounts, or accumulating as debt lines on credit cards. When you look around, the things about the world that pain you, the costs are there too. I think if we wanted to begin to acknowledge the cost of consumerism, in addition to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we'd have Physio Wednesday, Cry-On-Your-Way-To-Work Thursday, etc...

Having said that, as someone who loves sex toys and is always looking for a deal, I've compiled for you a list of independent sex shops that are offering great sex toy deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If you've got money to spend, consider spending a little of it on yourself and get yourself something that will carry you through all the days of the week, by encouraging hours and hours of self-love. Or, if you're buying for others, do it early and save.

As always, these listings don't imply endorsement and are presented alphabetically. If you're looking for recommendations on where to buy sex toys, check out our sex shop reviews and write a review of your favorite sex shop.

They're offering the same size discounts on their site, one product a day will be 40% off (they aren't announcing the toy until the day begins). And finally, the Babeland version of CyberMonday includes 15% off your purchase at Babeland.com from November 29 through to December 1.
