Age Appropriate?

I did some interesting reading over at Boinkology during my lunch break. Writer Lux Alptraum asks the question, "What's the Right Age to Get Your First Sex Toy?" She says:

"Given our country’s stand on teen pregnancy (we hate it) and teen sex (not too fond of that one, either), it boggles my mind that we’re similarly opposed to teen masturbation. After all, teenagers are walking balls of hormones, full of vim, vigor, and sexual energy (mostly the latter): if we don’t want them to have sex, surely masturbation is an excellent way for them to deal with all those unwholesome urges."

We do hate teen pregnancy — except for Gov. Sarah Palin, who says she and her husband are proud of her 17-year-old pregnant daughter's decision to keep her baby and "even prouder to become grandparents." Perhaps her daughter would have been better off with a Hitachi Magic Wand?

What do you think? You have to be 18-years-old to buy a sex toy in Vermont — should that law be changed?
