"We call it 'an intimacy salon,' " director Alla Burashnikova said as she sat primly in a corner watching deeply interested Russians examine glow-in-the-dark condoms, an inflatable woman and six sets of shelves holding probably the broadest array of sexual devices ever gathered in one public place on Russian soil. "We propagandize health," Burashnikova said.
