Is it weird that my mom and I openly discuss sex toys and even give them as gifts to each other?

My mom and I are close friends and have been since my early adult years. My husband seems to think it's 'gross' that we are able to talk so freely and that I'll buy her one and she'll buy me one from time to time. We don't talk about our usage of them and we damned sure don't share them. Is this odd?

I actually think that's a wonderfully healthy relationship. Now, if you two are like trying the toys out together, that's weird, haha.

However, I think it's healthy to talk about those kinds of things, especially once you hit adulthood because those become the things that are typically the norm in your adult life when it comes to your relationship, lack of, or whatever.

Your husband probably just feels that it is awkward because he isn't that open with his family, and he's probably thinking of it from a perspective of you being much younger. Because let me tell you, if my parents had talked to me about sex or toys or anything like that when I was a teenager and still hadn't grown into it myself, I'd be scarred for life and DEFINITELY find it gross for people to talk about it with their parents.

But nah, totally cool.

I think this is not typical, but it seems you have a great relationship with your mom. Congrats!

I would probably keep this talk away from your husband, though. Just sayin...

No that's not weird. Me and my mom talk about it and I could see us give them as gifts too.

I agree with WW - and I'm also envious! I grew up in a "we don't talk about things like that" household and it's taken a while to become more 'free' myself as a result.

My mom and I certainly don't buy toys for each other. Honestly I don't think she even owns any. I doubt I'd mind it as much as she would.

I know what you mean. I was raised with the whole notion of that sort of thing being "dirty." I don't understand it because my gram isn't that way at all, but my mother is. I've written a few short erotic stories and my mom calls it "smut," but my gram loves it and asks me to send them to her when I write them.

I always had a close relationship to my Mom, but sex was never a topic. My daughter (now grown) and I did discuss pretty much anything openly, but sex toys never has come up and I wouldn't be giving her any (or vise versa). A friend of ours, however, had the strangest experience with her Mom. She was about 30 at the time, and just getting married (had a big career to put on track first). Her mom is very young and attractive (only 50...had her at 20), and so people think they are sisters. However, they never really discussed sex at all either. One day, as they were shopping for some "honeymoon lingerie" at V. Secrets, her mom blurts out, "oh honey, I found the best lube ever for when he wants to fuck you in the ass. I just bought a few bottles, since your dad loves to bugger my ass at least twice a week, and as long as I was shopping I got you a bottle. Remind me to give it to you when we get home". And that was it! From the mom who never, EVER had offered any "sex advice" or discussed anything about bedroom matters beyond the most basic "birds and bee's" and biological "period" talk. Our friend was, well, floored.
