CINCINNATI (TDB) -- Apparently, the local prudes took the day off. The Chamber of Commerce has named Pure Romance its woman-owned business of the year. Not bad for a company that markets adult-themed products at house parties, or says the goods it offers online will spice up libidos from foreplay to the Big O. Everything is aimed at female buyers.
For example, there is a beginner's bondage kit that includes wrist and ankle restraints, a soft blindfold, a 10-inch rubber whip, and 44-inches of straps. All for $28. If that's not kinky enough, check out the "double header." Or the "Daddy from the 'Nati." Compared to any human's organ, it must be a Mighty Wurlitzer. It is powered by three AA batteries intended to deliver action in a spot that stimulates more than conversation. Think of women hitting high notes.
Pure Romance is a successful enterprise that has annual sales in excess of $40 million a year. It is in the pink so to speak.
