Apparently the Hotel Industry is finally catching up to the fact that one of the things people do in hotels is have sex. Upon stumbling onto this previously unnoticed phenomenon they finally realized they can monetize this aspect of human behavior. The magnitude and timing of this realization is comparable only to the pancake makers realizing that people use maple syrup when eating pancakes. So when the Water Club, the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s ultra-posh luxury hotel, started hawking the “Passion Kit” they hit the mother lode. For mere 18 bucks the Passion Kit delivers:
- two condoms
- two personal lubricants
- two obstetrical towelettes
- two packs of peppermints
- one tube of massage oil that glows in the dark
- one packet of feminine wipes complete with “libido enhancers”
There are also lottery-style, scratch-off “Strip Poker” and “4 Play” games for couples vying to see who will take it off first. BTW, at no extra charge, each room comes with naughty doorknob placard that beats the boring “Do Not Disturb” sign. These come with a wheel that proudly proclaims to the outside world “We’re flirting”, or “We’re tied up”, or even “We’re #$*@!”, but since this is a couples oriented hotel, there is no “I’m cranking the monkey” option.
