I was sitting at a party the other night between one friend and another. I was talking to Right Hand Friend and I noticed out of the corner of my eye that Left Hand Friend's conversation had ended and he was on his own. I reached over and took his hand. Our hands sort of naturally locked fingers and fell on the couch between us. I'm a little embarrassed to tell you that he laughed at me. I turned and he said, "What? Are we going steady now?" It did not do an ego good, I tell you!
I responded with the only tool I had available, the truth. "No! It was just that I didn't want you to think I was ignoring you but I'm having a really good conversation about sex toys over here and I'm not ready to end it yet." That'll teach him. He did have the grace to laugh at that, too, and not to interrupt.
So let me ask you, where were you the last time you had an in-person discussion of sex, sex toys, erotica, or the like? And what were you talking about?
In my conversation we were continuing a discussion we'd started days earlier about strengthening pelvic floor muscles as a way to relieve pain. In particular I was admitting that, for fun not pain, I'd bought some Luna Beads but have failed to use them as yet. I'll let you know as soon as I do!
*Is this a good title for a feature? Should it be a feature? Should I shut up about features until I get into a posting groove?
**That is not a luna bead in that picture!
