Sales of sex toys for the holidays are down this year, a trend being reported nationwide. Local Swedish erotica store owner Marshal Matthews said sales in his store, although brisk, are off by about 15% from last Christmas. “I don’t know if people are more satisfied this year, or if that damn moral fiber from the election is to blame,” he explained. He said sales of such time-tested favors as the Ultra Vibe 5000 are still strong, but still not where he wants them to be. He hopes that New Year celebrations will escalate sales to a higher level.
