CVS is urging customer’s to “keep it sweet” by offering handcuffs, condoms, lube and Plan B. You know, just in case. When I think of romance, I think of Paris, chocolate and unwanted pregnancies. At first we thought it was a joke but the fact that Plan B is locked in its own display case (since it technically isn’t over-the-counter) means that this was totally intentional. I guess the kind of person who is doing their Valentine’s Day shopping at CVS is the same kind of person who needs a friendly reminder that emergency contraceptives are a reminder. However, I will take this time to not hate on Whitman’s Samplers or those 99 cent hearts with cartoon giraffes on them that have the fake fruit inside because those are top notch shit candy, like on par with Reese’s Peanut Buttercups for me. So good.
As far as the handcuffs go, I will quote Rihanna, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but whips and chains excite me.” She is so talented, tbh.
