My Favorite Red, White and Blue Sex Toys

I’m not much for celebrating our country’s Independence Day. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with firing up the grill or throwing last year’s husk of a Christmas tree into a bonfire to blaze gloriously for all of 30 seconds as your face melts off. And who doesn’t enjoy fireworks? I like the activities, but I just don’t feel the season. To each her own, eh? Anyway, I thought it would be fun if I let my readers in on my favorite toys boasting the patriotic colors of the American (and plenty of other...

In this rancorous political environment, America’s birthday is a chance for people to leave the verbal fireworks aside, at least briefly, and understand and appreciate what they’ve got.

The famous line that always gives me chills when I read it is: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. I believe that all men and women are created equal, ...
