About a month ago I took one of my oldest friends (been friends for 11 years) to dinner. Afterward we walked over to Hustler (I was running SUPER low on lube and figured I would pick some up). Now, this darling girl is NOT a prude by any means. She and her hubby had their sex parties and whatnot...so, we get there and she acts all disgusted with the store...she tends to pretend to be a prude so people won't figure out the "kind of girl" she really is. To each their own...no biggie.
We go upstairs to so I can get my lube (and dammit wouldn't you know it...they were out of it! That's what I get for not ordering extra from EF) and she says "I don't get why people need toys...my man satisfies me every time. I have no need to replace him." Nice...as well as a bit condescending.
I simply say "J satisfies me too...but mixing it up is SO much fun." Come to find out she says it is awful that I let J "beat me." RIGHT! NOT! It took everything I had in me to keep from saying that some people would find it odd that she and her man liked to swing (I don't, but some people would...you all know it).
So how many of you have friends like this? She knows my lifestyle (and has tried to "help" me leave it too (I have no idea WHY). Our other best friend has the same life style I do but reverse (she is the Domme and he is the sub), I feel awful because she hides it from her for fear of being put down because of her choices. I avoid doing things with this particular friend because of little comments here and there that irritate me to hell and back. In fact...she and her husband split and I actually enjoy spending time with him because he thinks I am a totally awesome wife for being so open to anything J wants.
Sorry, I had to vent here. I could take to my blog, but you know...people might get all pissy and I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings (like I actually care, right?).
