These days not much shocks me, but when this obscure product arrived in my inbox yesterday ...
I thought this was some extra special foolery. If you're like a few others who I sent a picture of the above "device" to, you thought it was either:
a) A futuristic maxi pad (Erica),
b) a water balloon launcher, but a nice one. One only Richie Rich would own because it's gold. (Carol),
c) a jock strap (Allie),
d) a chastity belt (Raven's Rob) or
3) some new-age sex apparatus (me).
Welp, we were all wrong. What you're looking at is a "a chest pillow to help women eliminate and prevent chest wrinkles while they sleep". The e-mail subject of said PR pitch was and I quote:
"Eliminate Chest Wrinkles Just in Time for Those Low Cut, Valentine'
s Day Dresses"
I'm sorry, but what the eff are chest wrinkles? And why do I need to eliminate them?

I mean, what is your husband or boyfriend going to do when you crawl into bed and strap that thing on? He's going to look at you like you've lost your damn mind is what he's going to do.
In all honesty, I do think this thing could provide some relief to women who are breast feeding or just had "enhancements", but I have never, ever once even thought about "chest wrinkles". Furthermore, if you do have serious chest wrinkles, you are probably at an age where you don't need to have your coconuts out and about for all to see.
I am sure this is not the post Intimia had in mind when they contacted me, but any publicity is good publicity, right?
Can someone explain to me why I just ordered one of these?
