“Beauty attracts us men; but if, like an armed magnet it is pointed, beside, with gold and silver, it attracts with tenfold power” - Jean Paul Richter

You used to be able to buy (admittedly rather tacky) little plastic figures of boys and girls...which had magnets in their heads...and, when placed in close proximity to each other, they "kissed". I think, during a certain time period, it was one of those gifts inevitably given to little girls...sweetly innocent but useless from a sexual education perspective (though, I suppose, some men do tend to lunge so maybe plastic boy was illustrative of a certain type).

Chinese jeweler Qeelin has taken the whole "magnetic kiss" concept and elevated it to rather mind-blowingly decadent level...goldfish...in white and black diamonds...rubies...and orange sapphires...with tiny magnets clasped in their golden lips. As with their plastic counterparts, the magnets attract...or repel...the lips of other fish they meet...though I'm not sure how many of these you'd run into to be able to successfully test the theory.

    As the three strippers sang in Gypsy, "You gotta have a gimmick." One of them also said, "It's not enough just to have no talent..." but I'm not saying that.

    Gimmick or no, I'm totally enamored of these.

    I remember having a pair of magnetic little scottie dogs that would touch noses! I would think that ladies with pacemakers would not be able to wear these, but they are fun, if gimmicky.

    This won't have effect in fact, that's exactly what I believe.
