@ Edeneve: I can't blame you one bit after getting burned before. It's nice to bond over it, but it's not necessary, so you aren't losing out by not sharing, only risking something. It's a no-brainer in your situation.
And despite my openness and willingness to talk about anything with anyone, I know myself well enough to know I would be bothered by being treated poorly over the fact I have toys. I think I would likely be good enough friends to even get on the topic and possibility to show them, so I would regret having tension between us even though I'd think less of them for having a crazy reaction and being uncouth enough to let their negative feelings come through! Even if the situation were reversed, and I was the disapproving person, I would never make my friend feel uncomfortable for sharing anything with me, it's just poor manners!
@ SaucyxGirl: I think you really did that couple an amazing service by preventing them from having to make a lot of expensive mistakes. Now he has a much better, more informed chance to pick something she will really like and I think that's wonderful. BTW, fly your freak flag
proudly, lol, I do!
