"I’d just broken up with my boyfriend and, not having any other starting point, scanned the wall looking for something that vaguely resembled his proud member. Thin and long, no. Veiny and blue, no. Bubbled and curling with lights, um...nope.

Then, suddenly, in a burst of luminous pink jelly, I found my ex’s plastic penile doppleganger. I took it out the packaging, fitted my hand around it and measured it for girth. I almost put it in my mouth.

My friends, back again from squealing over gaping anuses and poking fake tits, gathered around me, sizing up my choice. They found it good.

We went to the counter, where a helpful, unwashed old man showed me how to insert the batteries, working his palm up and down the shaft without taking his eyes off me. Had I not been sufficiently liquored up, I probably would’ve wanted to vomit."
