Unlikely Sex Toys: The 5 Kinkiest Kitchen Utensils

In one of our many strange and winding trips through the twisted pathways of the Internet, we stumbled across this site: Despite the URL, it's not nearly as NSFW (that's Not Safe For Work, moms, which the rest of this post is -- so stop reading now and go find your happy place) as one would expect.

Italian designer Raffaele Iannello -- who's famous for creating the Voodoo/The EX knife holder -- has come up with an entirely new line of kitchen utensils that do double-duty, and we're not talking about a special scrubbing pad on the back of your rubber dish gloves. Iannello's line of kitchen utensils also double as sex toys. Or, as he puts it:

Squeezers or paper towel holders in silicon, with sleek and sensual forms, suggest 'creative' uses for common products targeted at general consumers, purportedly bored housewives or young single career women.

Sadly, Iannello's designs aren't yet for sale. But don't despair, "bored housewives," as there are yet treasures in your cabinets and drawers that may be used to provide hours of pleasure whether you use them in the kitchen or the bedroom.

A word of caution, though: While that French rolling pin may look comely to a lonesome lady, please don't insert anything into your ahem orifices that isn't expressly designed to go in there (i.e., cylindrical objects that don't have a flared base, anything that may break, splinter or shatter, anything that -- basically -- you didn't buy from a sex shop). That way lies infections, pain and embarrassing emergency room visits.

Now that we've gotten that out of the way, tie on that apron, put on some heels and get ready for some Donna Reed-roleplaying or hot Betty Crocker action.
