Why does "The Rabbit" vibrator has a smiley face on its end?

If you have been living under a stone, the "Rabbit" is a vibrating and rotating s*x toy made in the shape of a phallus with a clit0ral stimulator attached to the shaft. Its name came from the fact that the clit0ral stimulator looks like a pair of rabbit ears. Aside from providing a growing number of women with mind-blowing orgasms, the Rabbit is also known for an oddly-placed smiley located on its tip.

The smiley face on the Rabbit was actually a result of conservative Japanese customs. During the Shogun era (794 -1867 A.D.), a law was passed that craftsmen were strictly prohibited from creating sex toys that resembled male genitalia.

The Shoguns thought it was obscene that these craftsmen, who had practiced for many years to perfect their art, decided they would put their talents to better use creating realistic phalluses than carving the shapes of people and animals. As a way of getting around this law, and continuing with the very lucrative business of s*x toys, the craftsmen would carve a face onto the end so they didn't resemble genitalia quite as much!

The practice has continued to this day, because of Japan's conservative nature and through custom. Due to most sex toys being created in Japan or China, this would explain the presence of the smiley face up to the present!
