Porn and Philantrophy -- who says they don't mix?

At the Playtime adult store in Edison, Del Monte green beans are stacked near the Tantric love oils.

The store is touting its "Food 4 Porn" campaign, which offers free DVDs to customers who donate canned goods between now and Thanksgiving. "There are people starving in the U.S. It's abominable, it's just not right," said owner Deirdre Krasner.

This isn't Playtime's first fling with philanthropy. Two years ago, it sent more than 100 sex toys to the women of Iraq, an effort it called "operation vibration." ("I feel very strongly about women being suppressed," explained Krasner.)

Earlier this year, Playtime sent condoms to a small town in Australia where the local pharmacist was anti-birth control. But when Krasner wanted to help victims of December's tsunami, she sent money, not merchandise.

Yes, Krasner admits, she wants the publicity. But she also wants to help, she says.
