One of the things I love the most about spring is that I can finally ditch my bulky winter coats.

If you’ve ever seen a vintage product that made you go “Uh, what?” then you need to get ready for this: Vintage sex toys. Yes, back in the day people were shoving things up their hoohas and rubbing things against themselves just like they do today.
