15 Private Items You Can Buy On Amazon
There are some items are just embarrassing to buy in a physical store. There are some purchases that, just by holding them in your arms, tell complete strangers a lot about your life. Then there’s the risk of running into someone who isn’t a complete stranger—someone like a friend or your boss—while you’re buying ribbed condoms for her pleasure. But what are you going to do? Drive to a store in another town every time you need these basic items? If you were rich, you could just send your personal assistant to pick these things up. But even then, your assistant knows all about your business. Luckily, a lot of these sensitive items can be purchased on Amazon. Unluckily, not a lot of people know that! And they subject themselves to stares on a weekly basis at the local pharmacy when they pick up fiber capsules. Stop the humiliation. Here are 15 private items you can buy on Amazon.
