Killed? Examples?

I wonder if they have left-handed vibrators?

LA I read an article a while ago that said:

Left-handers are thought by many psychologists to have poorer spatial skills, and are more vulnerable to car crashes and other serious accidents.

But it had no examples of how Left-handers died while using right handed product. If I find anything on this I will post it up.

Thanks, Pix! Curious minds want to know! ;)

All the more reason why Ned Flanders "Leftorium" should be franchised across the country!

btw, I'm a lefty (not dead yet!)

I’m pretty sure if I lost my right hand (knock on wood!!!) and had to start doing stuff with my left hand, my life would soon end in disaster…
I can’t even brush my teeth with my left hand!!!

Oh, Fleur, I too thought of Ned Flanders and his store for left-handed ppl!!!:)

But closer to my heart: my husband is a lefty....(yeah he's crazy!) Love him xoxo
