In any case at the moment I am set in a terminal of the edgy flughafen in Munich, by edgy I am referring to the fact that the airport actually has smoke lounges (a dying fad) but most importantly of all it includes a sex shop. Now that is certainly a point for comment.
What exactly is the point of having a sex shop at an airport? While not an expert in the industry I for one am entirely in favour of petitioning every major airport to license a sex shop.
Everyone can relate to being stuck at duty free trying to decide what a suitable last minute gift would be. Sure there is subpar chocolate, questionably tax free cigarettes, and nauseating beauty products. All that you are really left with is to purchase alcohol but what an ideal combination gift would a bottle of Smirnoff be with a shiny new vibrator? I am in absolute agreement with you that perhaps a vibrator can only be a one off gift. Yet why not buy a souvenir sticker from the city you just visited, slab that sticker on that vibrator that you just purchase, and viola you just got an amazing gift. Every city in Germany could have a branded vibrator this way. Wouldn’t every female (some men) want to be stimulated by Berlin or Munich? Heck, what I wouldn’t do for a Hamburg right now!
Beyond vibrators a sex shop can also provide you with a variety of gifts good for the entire family. Son of ‘that age’? Perhaps an issue of Juggs? Want to teach your kids about the value of race relations? Get some interracial themed DVDs. There are even lollipops in the shape of breasts for the young ones being weaned off mama’s good stuff.
Wow. Who would have thought that the traditional and conservative Bavarian region in which Munich lies would be onto such a great idea? Shame on Shipol (Amsterdam) for not having led the way on what is thematically within its jurisdiction.
Aside from this musing, I spent the last 8 days travelling around Bayern (Bavaria) from the medieval little towns with preserved ancient city walls (eg Rothernburg) to the hop/barley sexiness of Munich. My brother kindly chauffeured us around in a 3 series BMW. It was thrilling being in a vehicle going at 200kph (120mph) on the Autobahn and actually being the slow vehicle on the road.
