If one could drop dead of embarrassment, I’d have been six feet under the day my daughter marched into my office belting out Let It Go into a vibrator. “Mama! I love this funny microphone! It wiggles!” would have been the last words I ever heard. (Clearly my sex toy game was better than my sex toy hiding game. But I digress.) I flew across the room Neo-style to snatch it out of her hand, and asked if she’d like to go out for ice cream before tucking it back in my bedside drawer. (That “talk” could come later.)
But when it comes to talking with adults, I could talk about sex toys for days. I mean, there’s a reason Sex Toy parties are a thing. Once you get past the awkwardness, it’s just fun. And maybe it’s the company I keep, but every girls night ends up on the topic at some point. But there’s good reason to dish about what you like! After all, pleasure, alone or with a partner is one of the best ways to de-stress, relax, and connect. (Who doesn’t need as much of that as possible right now?) And while you don’t necessarily need an object to make it enjoyable, the addition of a vibrator or sex toy definitely ups the ante.
