I just got my first email spam from a sex toy company located in Pakistan.


Now let’s think about that for a moment. Pakistan, a deeply Muslim country currently engaging in a low-level civil war with the Taliban, which is arguably the single most repressive religious entity the world has ever seen. And a company in Pakistan is offering to sell me, wholesale, stainless steel knockoffs of NJoy sex toys.

Anyone want to start a betting pool about how long before the guy (and I guarantee it is a guy; women are barely able to leave the house in much of Pakistan) who owns this company is assassinated?

There’s something a little surreal about the notion of a sex toy company in Pakistan.
