There’s always something peculiar, and peculiarly gratifying, to see at Pharmaca, the Western U.S. alt-pharmacy chain. This is, after all, a store that stocks Fruitrients, W3LL PEOPLE [sic], Topricin*, Alaffia (ha ha!), Cowgirl Skincare, and GladRags (“eco-friendly menstruation support made simple”).
But if I had to pick a current favorite from the Pharmaca shelves, it would be Mandelay “climax control gel.”
Man … delay.
I’m tickled that it’s a man-word I hadn’t yet encountered. I’m amused by the punctuation after the name (a full stop, really?). And I can’t resist a name that has me Kipling—you’ve Kippled, haven’t you?—all the way home.
As for the product itself, here’s what a reviewer said on the CVS site: “It works, but a little too well.”
* Oh, it’s the top ricin, is it? Paging Walter White!
