Now, I have a two-year-old who would probably love a Pull Along Spot The Dog. I am, however, certain that copies of "Female Ejaculation and the G-Spot" or "How to Spot a Bastard by His Star Sign" are a little premature.

We have, of course, been making merry over the past week with Amazon's related products listings. After all, who could fail to be impressed with the fact that Amazon reckons anyone looking for a pair of "Sennheiser HD202 Headphones" may also want a copy of "A Hand in the Bush: the Fine Art of Vaginal Fisting" (see Letters here).

Well, the moment for sniggering laughter is over. We reckon it's about time that Amazon cleaned up its act. After all, we're talking about innocent kiddies being subjected to this filth. Ok, innocent kiddies with access to the Internet and a credit card and advanced typing and reading skills, but just the idea that our little darlings could inadvertently stumble across this depravity makes our blood boil. ®
