In the pink

It may be a good idea not to look at this one at work. As usual the fun is in the comments for each particular product, and in the self-description. WTF is a paramedical esthetician?

I'll bet

You're their #1 customer right? ;P

So which pink are you? Bettie amiright? :D

Anyhoo... funny stuff... btw, Paramedical Esthetician is a real career... http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-paramedical-esthetician.htm

It's not uncommon to find one in some of the more upscale salons. Which causes me to have a thought... one of the things they specialize in is permanent makeup... I wonder if anyone's ever tried to get one to do THAT down THERE... :P

Darn

You have to have one to be able to use it.

Hope springs eternal.

It just strikes me ...

...as being absolutely sexist and wrong in so many ways. Woman as commodity yet again. Not just that, but I rather doubt many men actually look at the colour of one's frou-frou. A case of fining a problem that doesn't exist, and creating a product to 'solve' it.

Business

Several businesses seem to be based around the idea of identifying problems that don't exist, and creating products to solve the non-existent problem.

Remember the Innovations Catalogue? Apparently it still exists in Australia, where you can find such delights as a combined walking stick and umbrella, a remote-controlled "LED Comfort Mood Light", a combined hand-held steam cleaner and vacuum, a 2-in-1 UVC handheld vacuum cleaner, a self-winding pocket watch or a "Sound Oasis Travel Sound Therapy Product".

There are 10 kinds of people - those who understand binary, those who don't, and those who know this sig's in ternary.

Problems that don't exist...

I think DSM V is a case in point.

Is it so much different from ...

... the product adverts I get in my junk email telling me how to enlarge my penis? Oddly, there are also emails offering to increase the size of my breasts, often received the same day :) Steph, we're all commodities to someone for something - even bicycles.

btw although the Innovations catalogue has disappeared there are still lots of similar ones. I actually enjoy looking through them and even occasionally buy things. We have a splendid gadget that gets lots of use; it enables you to trap insects alive and release them outside -particularly useful for bees but we release wasps too.

Ah, the innovations catalogue!

Such things still come with certain Sunday Newspapers, but they have changed radically. I remember snorting tea through my nose on seeing a picture of a semi-naked woman using a 'massager' on her own back for 'a relaxing vibrating massage'. It was, of course, a dildo, and they are still sold through the current catalogue, just marketed as exactly what they are.

How times change.

Thinking (toxico)logically

Our Products are Never Tested on Animals

(Love the CAPS - a sure sign to me that someone "doth protest too much".)

Be reminded that in the country of origin, a product for which there is no toxicolgical data can legally be described as "non-toxic". If no animal testing is done, there may well be no toxicological data (see note).

Many dyes are dodgy materials, and the skin in question has a low resistance to absorption. Cancer of the labia anyone? Of course the supplier will be out of business and long gone before any cases arise. And even if not, the victim has the difficult job of proving the causation.

For those on my side of the pond, note that it would be illegal to import this stuff, even for personal use, and even if you hand-carried it in. Of course, if you do, you are not going to get caught - Stephanie Woodruff and her colleagues have bigger fish to fry; but should you not question why you are not allowed to have it?

Note
It is why I have a low opinion of that cosmetic/personal care products outfit which makes much the same claim: "Against animal testing". What it actually seems to mean is that "We do not do any (further) tests on animals".

In Europe, no product may be 'placed on the market' without the testing having been done, although some materials - a very few - are grandfathered. Also some natural products are exempted. But apart from that the rule applies and it covers a lot of ingredients, including the dyes. The law is so explicit that it actually contains a heading "No data, no market".

So the claim means at best: "We buy our ingredients from manufacturers who have themselves done the animal testing", and at worst: "We import our ingredients illegally from countries where there are no controls."

Why do they need to paint it.

This is wierd.

It seems to me that they are turning yet another part of their bodies into a sex object.

When being intimate most partners tend to go by touch and feel cos that's what works best, few if any LOOK at it, least ways not the female parts unless 69 is involved.
The only other time anybody looks at it is when exibitionism is involved and that really degrades women. So if a woman supposedly invented this she's not doing her sisters many favours.

I dunno, there's nowt so strange as folks. brings a new meaning to the expression 'Pink Pussy'.

Sorry,Mittfh,

I don't know where your "information" came from, certainly not from the Australia I live in---we are
a little more up market than that, come down and meet us some time,we don't bite!
