What tickles your thigh and has two sausage-like appendages?

If the thought of delicate tickling sensations on your thigh sends you into rapturous delight then you need to try a K-mat. But before you get too excited, though, just remember this is no kinky adult toy. For the K-mat is a curved mouse mat that fits snugly around even the most generous of thighs. And the problem of the mouse slipping to the floor when not in use is overcome with the addition of two sausage-like rolls on either side of the K-mat. The whole purpose of it is to allow people to use their mouse without having to rest their arm on the desk. For as well as sensitising your upper leg into an altogether different erogenous zone, the K-mat is being heralded as a useful tool in the battle against repetitive strain injury (RSI). According to the inventor Nicholas Mark, because the mouse is used on your lap, the arm, elbow and wrist are all resting in a neutral position. It is this that Mark claims will help sufferers of RSI combat their painful affliction. ®
