Sex Toy or Gadget?

  1. it seems like minimalist is the way to go for electronics as well as sex toys. Tenga (marketed by http://www.tengatango.com ) is an example where simple styles and great functions win over the traditional obscene toys. The Tenga toys look like anything but a sex toy but is selling like hotcakes worldwide. Put the Tenga Fliplite (the white one) beside your Apple iPhone (the white one) and you can see what i mean.
