seedless watermelon lubricant! [Sep. 27th, 2004|11:12 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Okay, first off... don't question my browsing patterns. Let's just say I'm a master of the int0rweb, and I pride myself at being able to click my way towards this:

Seedless Watermelon Lubricant.

Really--- seedless? Do they really have to specify that it's seedless?

Did some marketing guy think, "Well, somebody might think this lubricant contains seeds and not buy it.... we'd better specify that it's seedless."

Or do I not know something about watermelons? Do seedless watermelons differ in taste?

That is all. Enjoy your Monday.

that's interesting, because i have their watermelon flavored lubricant from a couple years back (do those things have an expiration date?). they didn't have the seedless option at the time!

And why do they sell lubricant and "justrubbers.com". You would think that they would sell... well... just rubbers.

This is the fruit of a discussion that I had with a co-worker.

I had an encounter with odd lube flavors myself a few months ago. Sometimes the sex products industry scares me.

What really gets me, after having followed the link, is that they go out of their way to specify that it's sugar-free. I've seen lube claiming to be low-carb, too, God help us all.

I would assume they put that in there because you don't really want to be putting sugar products up your.. well, you know.

Not seedless (watermelon lubricant). It's (seedless watermelon) lubricant.

Yes, I understand that sir.

But for the purposes of an artificially-flavored lubricant, the flavor of "watermelon" and "seedless watermelon" are equivalent, so why specify?

seedless do tend to be juicier and sweeter...not that I'm a watermelon expert...

With seedless watermelons (the actual food product), there's less chance of choking...

The world of watermelon lubrication marketing is very competitive.

Those marketing folks are wonderful. Though I have some concerns about them since they're still selling televisions with "Wireless Remote".

How dare you cheat on SugarDVD like that! Have you not noticed the "Sex Toys" section?

Clearly, a brilliant marketing decision was made. While I as a consumer have all sorts of negative attidues towards watermelon seeds, "seedless" has always been a positive, desirable thing whenever I am in the market for watermelons or watermelon products.

I figured it out! You see, they have watermelon flavored lube but, it's not part of their special flavored lube product line. (it's just part of the regular wet line) So they call it seedless to make it sound more special.
