Would this embarrass you?

Hot 'N Sexy TexasMama Hot 'N Sexy TexasMama
My 27 year old adult daughter lives with us and shops on here also with her own account. Today as I was going out the door she was like, 'Hey....I found this item you might like...' and stopped me to show it to me.

I was a bit embarrassed because it was a new type of toy we'd not used before but I'd just ordered something different.

Would you feel embarrassed talking to your adult parent (or child) about the toys on here or making/receiving recommendations on toys?

I wouldn't be embarrassed to discuss things like that with my parents but they are old fashioned and conservative, and it would embarrass them. I wouldn't discuss it simply because I wouldn't want to upset them.

I'll start this off by voting other.

You see, I made the realization today that the item my mother gave me when I was a teenager that I used as a make-shift vibrator really WAS intended for that purpose. I can't remember how I found it, but it was from a blogger here on Eden, they posted something that linked to antique vibrators. Well, my mom gave me her Lady Nerelco. It's got all these interchangeable parts for doing manicures, applying make-up, shaving, etc. And a massager. Through that link I found today, I discovered that it really was intended as a vibrator!! And my mom gave this to me as a teenager.

I should have known something was up when she didn't seem too shocked about me telling her I was going to sell Pure Romance back in the day....

Hah! Props to your mom for being so open-minded

I'm going with other as well. I have young adult kids and they know we use toys. We all get packages in the mail - but no one opens one not addressed to them - so an embarrassing situation is not likely.

I have considered giving my 20 year old daughter the Pure Platinum that her mother doesn't like - but I haven't gotten the nerve to do it. Maybe as shower gift for her wedding!

I show most of my toys to my mother, and I've bought her a few as well (she adores her LELO Liv ). It definitely weirded her out a lot to start, but over time she's become desensitized and more interested. She still has limits to how much she can talk about in one sitting though, hah. I respect that she's open to the conversation at all. We've always had a pretty open relationship when it comes to talking about personal things, luckily.

What is funny is my daughter knows more about toys than I do and she's the one who got me to look at this site.

I think it amazes both of us that I'm willing to be open and discuss some of this stuff with her and look at products and videos with her.

But I find myself thinking, "If I'm not willing to share - who else will she talk to?"

It isn't as if I'm making judgments on what she looks at - I just think I shocked her when I admitted that I was actually looking at butt plugs when a week ago that would've been a big "oh no...not going there.." by me.

Both of my parents are doctors and they are quite open-minded, but they still seem to think that sex toys are intended for lonely people or for those who has problems with their sexual health. Both of them know, however, that me and my boyfriend order some things from "some American online sex-shop" and that I do some reviewing. When I talked to my Mom about it she was wondering "why a young healthy couple would need anything like that". I don't feel embarrassed, though As for my Dad - at least he seems to be more open to the idea. He even asked me once about some glow-in-the-dark condoms

My mom and I talk about everything. I even told her when I lost my anal virginity at age 37. We both laughed hysterically. I bought her her first upscale sex toy and we frequently go to the brick and mortar sex shops together.

She has gotten much of an education from me. We never discussed these kinds of things when I was growing up, ever. This came a few years after I left home.

My mom and I don't talk about that kind of thing. I wouldn't be opposed to it, per se, but we just don't have that kind of relationship. I think it's great for those that do though!

Nah, that wouldn't bother me in the slightest. I don't and won't have kids, but I talk to family and friends about toys all the time. It's just another subject that I love and can't help but talk to anyone who will listen.

I would not want to talk to my kids about sex toys. I wouldn't want to hear about my mom's sex life or toys so why would my kids want to hear about mine?

I would not be embarrassed at all. I got my step daughter her first toy for her 18th b-day! She was excited and thanked me later for it. We have a good relationship, she told me things that she did not tell anyone else. I talk to my mom about sex toys also. I show her all of mine!

My mom would have a heart attack, my dad would ask how good it worked. lol

My kids have a vague idea about what I do here, lord knows they have seen the screen from time to time. When they are old enough, we will have not problems talking to them about toys. We are totally open with our kids, something our parents did not do.

I wouldn't be embarrassed if it was from one of mine of legal age.

Two of my three daughters are over 18. They are aware I review toys, but we don't discuss this much. They just know when not to come into the home library, when I'm writing or editing a review. Everyone should have privacy if they like it.

I do like my privacy, but if one of my dd's gave me a toy (which I doubt would happen, just because I know them, and we all respect each other's privacy) it wouldn't be a huge deal. But, we do like to maintain strong boundaries, and I don't think they like to think about their father and I having sex.

It's natural to not really want to go into great detail with your kids about things like sex toys. Although educating them about sex, birth control, how to say "no" knowing when you're ready to have a sexual relationship are all things that do need to be discussed. I pretty much leave them alone on the sex toy front. One of my girls works in a store that sells sex toys, so she knows what's out there.

I educated my mother on sex, birth control and how to say "no" when she began dating a few years after divorcing my father. Not something she ever talked to me about when I was a teen because she had no idea. The roles reversed somehow and in that we become best girlfriends.

I've talked to my step mom about some of them. Not in great detail or anything. And I've mentioned the site to my mom, but we've never talked about specific toys. I'm sure I'd be embarrassed.

i wouldn't be embarrassed talking about it w/ my partner, but i would w/ my parents. the last thing i want them to know is what kind of toys i own (or that fact that i own any period) or that i shop on these kinds of sites.

I talk to my mom about sex toys a lot. At first it disturbed her, but she's come around and is actually interested to see the things that I get in the mail. My first order had a bunch of cheaper toys in it that I ended up not liking just by feeling the vibrations, so she actually asked if she could have them. I just don't go as far as telling her my experiences, as that would be crossing the line and would lead to awkward silences.

I was never able to do that with my mother. She isn't open at all and is very sexually repressed.

I'm glad your mom and yourself were able to get closer.
