An O-So-Scarlett Blush

Just when we thought that sex toys may have made it into the mainstream, the dream faded, like Scarlett Johansson’s smile must have, when she got the memo.

This week Scarlett discovered that she was the endorser of a Mexican sex toy store. For an A-list lassie, this would have either been a ballsy career move, or a train-smash. Sure, a few celebrities have come out proudly about their beloved vibrators: Halle Berry, Eva Longoria, Geri Halliwell, Lindsay Lohan, and a few others. Madonna even published photos with her vibrator in her book, Sex. But, disappointingly, this was no such a scoop.

Apparently the owner of said store volunteered Ms. Johansson for his business cards. He did not have the multi-million dollar budget it would take to have her pose that way, in fact, by the look of it, he has a little shack with peep shows in the back. The revelation of his cheap exercise will not make or brake her career, but it may be good for his business. Well, until she sues his little culo.

But business ethics is not the point here. I thought about how nice it was, for a wee moment, when I read the headline that starlet Scarlett had agreed to do it, to treat sex toys with the same enthusiasm as she showed for Dolce & Gabbana. Then came the realization that while it is okay for stars to be photographed looking like they are pining for an orgasm (and will soon be having one, as will you, if you wear her clothes/perfume/make-up), it is still not really cool to recommend any particular product that pretty much guarantees it will happen.
