I only have 2 friends who would be "ok" with using a sex toy, so I don't have many opportunities to give them as gifts. Not sure that I know enough about their preferences to be able to make a good choice for them either.
I haven't. I had planned to get my best friend one for christmas this past year, but then I ended up getting her a videogame (since she suddenly took an obsessive interest in it) and a new ipod (since hers broke). I'm thinking for her birthday, if I can get together enough points for something nice.
I've threatened to get all of my friends, and my sister, and my mother, erotic toys. But alas, none of them share my love. They would be used for lightsaber fights and strange pranks but never their intended purpose... I am alone in a love of things that go buzz in the night.
Never given or received one. I did know a guy who kept saying he'd get me a vibrating dildo for my birthday, but I don't talk with him much anymore. Wonder what he'd think if he knew how many toys I had?
If a friend told me they wanted a sex toy, though, I wouldn't mind getting one for them at all.
