Experts are divided about whether Amazon’s Dash could help people overcome the challenge of ordering the so-called embarrassing items. Those who say yes argue that placing orders for condoms or such private items by way of simply pressing a button instead of staring on a screen could save many consumers the embarrassment and increase sales.

However, those who say no argue that consumers exhibit high levels of embarrassment even in private, which is why Amazon’s Dash button ordering for condoms may not be a huge game-changer.
