Small number of products not showing in all categories they belong to on the front end - back end appears fine

Back end is fine. Products are enabled, inventory set, etc. 

About 46 of my products belong to a category that will not show up in the main category, but still show up in the sub categories (weirdism).  I checked to make sure they are all enabled, etc.  The are 4 items that do show up in the main category though, so I don’t know why the other 46 wont.

To explain, go to (it is an adult toy store - no bad viruses or anything there).  The main category links include all the products in their sub-categories.  But the second category listing called “Fetish Toys” is not showing all 50 items that are there...just 4.  I can’t explain why…

Things I have tried so far:
- refreshing cache
- clearing temp folders
- creating a new category

I cannot for the life of me figure it out.  Any assistance or direction would be great.  I haven’t changed any xml files and the only php file I changed was right_col.phtml.

The products that should appear in the main category of “fetish toys” are also listed in “body jewelry” and “anal toys”, so I can at least see the products that SHOULD be showing up in the “fetish toys” category.

As a side note, I did upload the products, but I don’t know that this will help the solution.

Thank you in advance.

Oo la la!

Your categories sound much more exciting than the ones I’m working on. Regardless, I’m having similar issues with my boring categories. 

Have you come up with anything?  I have other questions too but I’m restraining myself from further comment.  zipper
