Sex toy aisle coming to a chemist near you

VIBRATORS and other pleasure products are lining the shelves of family chemists across the state to cater for a new breed of sex toy shopper - "the tepid explorer".

"The tepid explorer is the woman who is over 30 and not game to visit a sex store but wants to seek out some fun in a discreet way," said Rob Goodwin, chief executive of the Love Pharmacy, the company supplying the Swoon pleasure collection to selected chemists.

"The packaging is very discreet and tasteful."

The Swoon collection includes a vibrating wand.
