Amazon As Market Research (For The Lonely Gamer)

The fleshlight is, to put it bluntly, a device for assisting in the act of male masturbation. It's also, shockingly, quite the hit with lonely video gamers.

At least, it is according to this Amazon page. And since Amazon's "customers who bought" pages are generated mechanically, there's no room for prejudice, comedy or torment. Just facts.

Once you get past the, ahem, essential accessories to accompany the device, you'll see a demographic appear right before your very eyes, with World of Warcraft, Fallout 3, Saints Row 2, Command & Conquer, God of War and Grand Theft Auto all featuring.

Tawdry, yes, and also wholly expected that there'd be video games there. But it's the kind of games featured that's the entertaining part, not the presence of games themselves. The man who orders a fleshlight and a copy of History Channel Civil War: A Nation Divided for the Xbox 360 on the same day is a man to be treasured.

    Funny I should see this. Getting up early to go to the snow in the morning so I can't go out tonight. About to go home to play Fallout 3 and maybe do something else ;). Finally have the time to play it now that my gf has gone overseas for a couple of months. She got me a fleshlight just before she left... I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
