Santorum poll numbers, chastity belt sales: both up!

News

Gas prices are kind of starting to refresh the news cycle but the whole birth control, contraceptive thing is hanging on as a prominent issue in the media. That's in large part because of Rick Santorum's strong views on the availability of contraception, which he says act as "a license to do things in the sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be."

The good news is that at least one chastity belt vender has seen an uptick in sales. The bad other news is that it really has nothing to do with Santorum's aversion to sex for pleasure.

"We’ve had a bit of a boost in sales, but that’s typical this time of year, at tax time," Donald Hayes, owner, Chastity Belts USA told Vanity Fair, when asked if the debate over contraception has boosted sales. "I think [tax refunds] drive sales of any kind of non-essential items. People have some extra money, they say, 'Okay, I’ll buy some toys.'"

Toys?
