Have you seen the ad for the sex toy called Auto Suck? It goes like this:
“Enjoy your drive with the ideal mate! Plugs into any car or truck lighter for some hot roadway action. Make sure to keep one hand on the wheel and one eye on the road as the auto-suck makes that long commute or road trip much more bearable. *Warning: this unit may cause ejaculation. This may be difficult to explain to your insurance company. Use at your own risk!”.
Okay, I’m not a prude and I know everyone is entitled to good sex, I understand its our right and I’m all for it but please….Is it really safe or necessary to use one of these units while driving? I think not! Look at the distraction problems we already face on the roads every day. All the fancy billboards and roadside signs that flash or scroll. The idiots who just have to be on their cells phones while driving just to mention a few. Now, throw in a portable sex toy like the Auto Suck and I’m scared to death to be out on the road!
Seriously, and answer honestly, how many of you can keep your eyes open when you are having an orgasm? Come on, it’s like sneezing, you just can’t do it! So let’s give this toy to the male driver and hope for the best. Yeah, this is just what I want a guy to be doing while driving a huge 20,000 pound, 550 H/P, 13 speed/overdrive tractor trailer. Seat belts and air bags won’t mean anything if you collide with one. Can you imagine the lawsuit implications with one of these toys? The ad actually suggests using it while driving. How stupid are they?
In my opinion, your just asking for trouble if you use one of these while driving. If you want to wait until you get to a rest stop or someplace safe to pull off and then hook up with the Auto Suck, fine I’ve got no complaints. To each their own. I suppose used safely it could be considered an “ideal mate”. But I just don’t understand what the advertisers of this toy were thinking.
In 2004, there were over 6 million motor vehicle crashes in the United States (data for 2005 is not yet available). The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported a total of 38,253 fatal crashes. There were 42,636 fatalities in those crashes. Non-fatal crashes totalled a whopping 6,143,000 with over 2.7 million personal injuries reported. There was an additional 4.2 million crashes related to property damage.
Given these statistics and the numerous distractions that drivers face every-day I can only hope that if anyone purchases the Auto Suck toy, they have enough intelligence not use it while driving.
