Vermont Country Store dabbles in sex aids

The Vermont Country Store is going from the kitchen to the bedroom. For more than 60 years, the catalog has been a mailbox staple. But now the Vermont Country Store is offering sex aids along with the usual cast iron skillets, maple syrup and heavy-duty toenail clippers.

The catalog includes six-speed vibrators, instructional sex videos and so-called "pleasure gels."

The idea to add risque items is from 67-year-old Lyman Orton. His father started the Country Store mailer in 1945. Orton says he wants older folks to stay sexually active.

The Country Store has gotten hundreds of letters from outraged customers. But Country Store officials say their new "Intimate Solutions" have been big sellers.
