I’ve been musing over a thought I had the other day; is there a moral responsibility to be explored and held up by the merchant/consumer relationship?

My wife and I hadn’t been intimate in a while, so the chance that we would even get to use some aids was slim, yet the therapist suggested it anyway.
Willing to do anything to keep our marriage going, we ordered some aids from an online shop. The therapist recommended that we try something simple to ease ourselves into it.
