I went to Amazon.com this morning to check out Prime Day, a special one-day sale Amazon claims offers more deals than Black Friday. I certainly saw a lot of deals, just none that interested me.
But I was fascinated by something I found on the "Recommended for You" page. There in the Sports & Outdoors category were a pair of police-style handcuffs and a "Soft Premium Leather Flogger." A flogger! I learned a new noun! Anyway, clicking "Show more like this" revealed 6 more floggers, and that was just page 1 out of 10! I had no idea!
Why is Amazon recommending this for me? What does it know about my repressed sexual desires that I don't know? Or should I perhaps ask my wife, who actually makes more purchases through my account than I do?
