So Walgreen's in Lincoln Park on Clark has started selling vibrators. Now there's a section in the store devoted to heated blankets, back massagers (battery-operated and rolling) and vibrators. They are obviously not called so by name - they are also labeled "massagers" - but they are clearly made for a certain size and shape of body part. So unless you are massaging the inside of your cupped hand or the back of your knee (ok, maybe parts of your foot could be legitimately de-stressed) these are for more private areas.
I don't know what this change in product assortment signals. Higher financial stress lead to increased need for self-stimulation/decompression through such? Unemployment means more time at home to try new vibrators? Recessions make you horny?
