The Drake Hotel in Toronto is offering sex toys on the room service menu, according to USA Today. Vibrators, massage oils, condoms, velvet restraints and how-to videos can be sent up the guests. The "pleasure kits" start at $35:
The 19 room Drake is a boutique hotel that attracts artists and actors. The aim is service that complements the hotel’s artsy image.
"We see ourselves as a bit of a trailblazer," owner Jeff Stober says. The racy room service menu […] is "in keeping with the theme of sex that has always played a role in artistic works. We are embracing that artistic spirit."
Actual embraces cost extra. They aren’t the only Toronto hotel that’s added sex-centives. The Grand Hotel, where our MISSING directors liked to stay, provides two channels of free, 24-hour porn, for their guests (for the record, I stayed at the Cambridge Suites, which offered no such goodies).
If Governor Arnold wants to keep movie production in California, he can forget about tax incentives and renegotiating with unions. Free vibrators for every member of the film crew! Sexual surrogates sent to the door of every screenwriter faced with a production rewrite!

Hey, Tod, is that a receipt from the Drake with Lee’s name on it dated from when he worked on MISSING? What were you planning to do with that? And why are all his checks from Germany made out to Tod Goldberg?
How to videos? I don’t even want to know!
