A friend of mine had discovered the Tenga Egg commercial on You-Tube, and had posted it on Facebook along with a comment about the practical applications of having vending machines of them outside bars and such. (I thought this was a great idea.) Another friend of his commented "T, you find the WEIRDEST shit." This reminded me that the general public is still sort of backwards about sex toys, especially the novelty ones that make the most sense to those of us who study them.
Sort of depressed that people are still weirded out by toys, but glad that it's becoming mainstream enough to be taken seriously by others.
I was just thinking about posting about having sex negative friends, actually. I have some friends who are very honest and open about sex, and are into BDSM, like me, and we have great conversations that don't feel awkward or judgmental at all.
But then I have other friends (oddly enough, they all have kids, and had kids at a young age), and they find sex toys "weird," and one of them is sure that it's mostly a lesbian thing (I have no idea why). They talk about former friends of ours being sluts, and I get really uncomfortable in conversations like that. For one, I don't like talking about other people's sex lives; they aren't there to defend themselves or to vouch for anything, so it's all just gossip. Besides that, their sex life is none of my business. I don't care to have a judgmental attitude about it, either.
I suppose I also find it distasteful, because they have this attitude that because they are moms, and because they are with the fathers of their kids, that they are superior in some way. At least, that's how it seems. I mean, I'm happy that they are happy being mothers, and glad that they are still with the fathers of their kids...but I don't think that makes them better than someone who is still out having fun, is more sexually open and more sexually active, and I don't think that it entitles them to any kind of soap box to get up on and preach.
I'm glad a place like Eden exists.
