The nominees for the 87th annual Academy Awards on Sunday will go home with some surprising sexy items inside the $167,000 gift bags. The gift bags will be given to the host and nominees in five categories namely the best actor, best actress, best supporting actor, best supporting actress and the best director.
Those who were not able to go home with the Oscar statuettes, will receive some surprising racy items including The Afterglow Pulsewave Vibrator priced at $250, the orgasm booster called The Couple’s Love Shot priced at $5,000 and the Naked Luxury Condoms priced at $56 for two 6-packs.
CNBC asked Pam Danziger, a luxury marketing expert, why there are so many racy products for this year’s swag bag.
“It’s connected to the idea that the beautiful Hollywood celebrities get ‘it’ much more than ordinary folks,” Danziger said. But to be totally honest about it, “the beautiful people in Hollywood must have all the same sex problems that everyone else does,” she told CNBC.
