The back cover to Wired's January 2006 issue had an advertisement with this picture:

and the caption:

Smooth, sensual technology with power that never quits.

That is just plain broken. Mixing sex and toilets is like mixing ice cream and horse manure. No amount of ice cream will make the horse manure any better, but even a little horse manure completely spoils the ice cream.

For crying out loud, the woman is even sitting on the toilet!
