And how is sex approached in different countries? Is an Irish dildo built and sold under the same regulations as American anal beads? Steve and Richie couldn’t approach this topic without just giggling for 60 minutes, so they reached out to the owner of Sex Siopa, the Smut Peddler-in-Chief, Shawna Scott."
