Oh, Twilight.  (somehow, that is not as much fun as "Oh, Japan."  I think that's because I love Japan, but not Twilight)

Yep, saw both of those on Sparklefield (along with a shower curtain with a giant print of RPattz's face on it). Twilight merchandise must be a statistically significant part of the US economy by now...

IMHO, the dildo is more 'ew' inducing just on the general principle of our-culture-is-uncomfortable-with-sex but the cutout is WAY more creepy overall. Like, if I walked into a room with that thing in it, I might scream.

I think the point with the cutout is that you wake up in the middle of the night, see the silhouette, and are somehow comforted by Edward Cullen's presence? But yeah, if I didn't expect it to be there when I entered someone's room, I'd be kind of scared, too. "OMG THERE IS A LAME VAMPIRE IN YOUR ROOM, QUICK, SHINE A FLASHLIGHT AT HIM!"

I would not want to shower with Edward Cullen. Ew. And if someone feels the need to have a sparkly dildo SOLELY because of Twilight . . . I worry. A lot. But then again, that might be the kind of person most in need of one. For instance, I would absolutely expect Josh to leave me if I became that obsessed with a book character instead of, you know, interacting with real people.

The silhouette thing just screams 'stalker' to me somehow, IDK. It's like he's hiding behind a curtain...watching you.

SING IT! And the dildo thing cracks me up because the whole fandom (and book series) in general has a weird view of sex. (Famous Twi-Hard line at Comic-Con: “I don’t know what an orgasm is, but I think I just had one!”. Plus the whole hugely popular fanfic where Orgasms=Unicorns so, you know, there are some definite issues there.) It's hilarious to me that in this whole melange of omnipresent-but-repressed-but-REALLY-important sexuality - seriously, Bella's happily ever after is that she gets to have sex with her husband, all the time, FOREVER - they suddenly throw in...a sex toy. It's almost subversive.

The "be safe" thing makes it 100 times creepier. =(

I know, right? If you're that into the fantasy, you have problems a dildo can't solve.
