It's hard out there for a sex toy lover, especially if you're straight.

Why on God's green earth is it hard for people to grasp that straight men can love sex toys too? Or why do they think you must be gay?

  Married with sex toys

I have been married for a few years now, and to be honest with you all, I have no idea what our sex life was like before we allowed sex toys in the bedroom. All I can say is that it must have sucked, because I have pushed it all back into the dark recesses of my mind. Now even though we are definitely pro sex toys, my wife even finds it kind of hard to get behind me when I ask to have the house to myself of Sundays in order to do my reviews. She too thought this would be a flash in the pan experience, but alas we were both wrong. Thank God for that. So in a way, I'm kind of going at this thing solo, which is fine. However, there is one thing we both get behind and that is the nasty comments I receive on my video reviews on a daily basis.

  The word "gay" is not a verbal weapon

I never take personal offense to them, but I do when they're homophobic, gay bashing, narrow minded comments. I don't know why so many people instantly think just because you're doing video reviews on female sex toys means you're gay? Have we become that ignorant? Above all, when has this word become an insult? Why is calling someone gay such a powerful weapon in these people's minds? Whatever the reason, it pisses me off! Not because they're calling me “names” in they're book, but for the simple fact that they think it's what needs to be said at that very moment. Or that somehow saying it is funny to the general public. I'm here to tell you all “IT ISN'T!!!”

Saying these things basically shows just how ignorant you are. So you're not harming me in anyway. You're just simply stating a fact to the rest of the world. That message is “I'm a nasty person who believes my way of life is the only way people should live there's. If you don't live this way, you must be gay.” Well, that's just bullshit.

  I'll stick this wherever I damn well please!

Being gay is not a crime. Being gay is also none of your business. Being gay does not hurt, harm, or affect your way of life in any way, shape or form. Period. So let the petty crap go and move on. I hate to compare this to African Americans, really I do, but I'm pretty sure these people wouldn't dare call some white kid the “N” word if they were reviewing Flo Rida's new album. I hope you see my point. Neither word is a weapon to be used to insult people. There's simply a huge sign that tells the world of your overwhelming ignorance towards the human race. So congratulations, bucko!
So, am I going to stop reviewing women’s sex toys? No chance in hell. Will I ever get a few anal plugs and experiment with them? Only time can tell. Will that make me gay? No, because anal stimulation doesn't make you gay. Hard concept for most people to grasp, I know, but that's just the way it is. Sorry to be the one to break it to you.
