Vermont Country Whore

The other week, we received the Winter 2008 catalog of our favorite, old-skool mail-order retailer: the Vermont Country Store, "Purveyors Of the Practical & Hard-To-Find." On the cover? A charmingly-illustrated still life of a kitchen table, a steaming pot of tea and a plate of biscuits. "Come on in!" read the copy. "You'll find Garibaldi biscuits and so much more to warm up your winter." We'll say! Last night, eagle-eyed Jezebel reader Shelly clued us in to a few very practical winter warmers in the issue, namely, a selection of cock rings, arousal creams and vibrators, including a $30 "Dual Pleasure" device. Is this what the old folks are doing when they finish their booze-soaked lemon cake and take off their snap-front flannel nightgowns and reusable, super-absorbent men's briefs? [Vermont Country Store]
