A startling revelation: the Frogs are trying to spice up their sex lives and in doing so they\’re buying up British designed sex toys.
One possible explanation is that the Brits (as George Mikes pointed out, the Continentals have sex lives, the British have hot water bottles) needed technological assistance and thus developed the technology to aid them. Necessity being the Mother of Invention and all that.
Another is that the Frogs have rather changed the nature of their relationships in recent years. Anecdotally at least, the normal method of dealing with a boring sex life there was to take another partner, wasn\’t it?
Or possibly both are true, the latter change meaning they are now taking advantage of the British Industrial Revolution and lead in technology.
