Sex has a pretty high investment/return ratio, so when financial hard times hit home, it's not a bad idea to hit the sack. If recent sales figures are any indication, sex-toy stores and websites are jackhammering this logic straight to the bank, replacing couples' fleeting splurges on vacations and dinners with the lasting pleasures of furry handcuffs and vibrating everythings, according to the Daily News.More »
