Sex for the holidays in Hamburg

is this what happens when you have a country full of people who are, generally speaking, a bit too tightly-wrapped...?

For the first time ever, Hamburg's mile of sin, the Reeperbahn, has decided to get into the spirit of Christmas by taking part in one of the most charming of German traditions -- the Christkindlmarkt. But as one might expect from a quarter which has become the sine qua non of sin, the market is more of an XXX-mas market than a slice of German holiday magic.


"The market has been a huge success," says Anja Bayer, 40, who was helping customers choose from the various sex toys on display at her booth on Wednesday evening. "It was totally full on the first weekend. And people bought all kinds of stuff for Nikolaus (Dec. 6) and now for Christmas. Not so much the dildos, but the massage oils and the vibrating cock rings have been very popular."

i wonder if they have a gift-wrapping booth... i also wonder what THIS old german would have to say about it...
