A Brooklyn Paper columnist on the news that sex-toy shop Babeland is opening in Park Slope: "Just because Park Slope is a child-obsessed neighborhood doesn’t meant that the grownups can’t have sex. I mean, kids are evidence that parents do have sex once in a while. At least they once did. The deep dark secret of life in Park Slope is that parents don’t spend ENOUGH time doing it. In fact, it’s probably the one activity that they’re not highly motivated about." [The Brooklyn Paper]
