The little things: anecdotes from everyday life

The little things: anecdotes from everyday life

Victoria Victoria
I thought it would be nice to have an ongoing thread of the funny (or not so funny) little things that happen to us everyday; that, although not significant, can be very telling about who we are or what our lives are like…

My little thing today, that made me laugh: I like pink grapefruit scented body products. I buy this one body butter called ‘Pink’ from Sephora and use it after a shower occasionally. So, this morning, my partner nuzzles up against me before leaving for work…he presses his face against my neck and inhales, then pulls back and says “Mmm… you smell like Froot Loops”…I was half-awake and was like “what?” - how freakin romantic, right? I sniffed the jar of body butter a few minutes ago and I can see how it might make me smell like breakfast cereal

I live with my parents right now because I'm going to college. Well, the other night I had bought a couple new products, getting ready for Valentines Day, yes I know, early, but wanted to start now instead of doing one huge $1000 purchase! Anyways, I had left stuff on my be because i was getting rid of packaging to save space and i left a large dildo and a couple different harnesses on top of my bed. When i was going back upstairs to my room my dad said he left some mail on my room. i became beet read and said thanks. he didn't say anything to me, so I'd like to assume he either didn't notice..unlikely..or will just leave it at that.

well i tend to have these instances more with my mom. I came out to my family earlier this year because of my boyfriend. Considering that i work at a adult store, I'm pretty sure he would expect me to have stuff in my room, but i do try to keep everything put up. My mom likes to clean house at random, going into my room and bathroom without warning. Don't get the wrong idea, i do clean my own living area, but she doesn't believe anyone knows how to clean. She was putting stuff away in bathroom and found open condom wrappers in the trash, that's how she started having "the talk" with me...every other day? >.>; and most recently she found the Head Honcho, apparently it freaked her out. LOL

Don't feel too bad. My dog very kindly drug a dildo down the hall and just left it lying in the kitchen.

I didn't know this and when I came home my mom and grandmother were sitting in my kitchen trying not to look at it. But hey, at least my little guy didn't chew it up. I'd then be explaining to my boss why he has to surgically remove chunks of silicone from him. Hehe.

Your parents seem cool.

Yea, they're pretty cool. Dad is ok with my job, seems curious about the stuff i sell. Mom doesn't like my job. She doesnt understand why someone would by sexual devices. She's very old school spanish and also has lost all sexual desire not long after i was born. But i always suprise them with work =)

Oh, geez, dildos lying down the bed and drug out by the dog...you've both got me totally paranoid now!

Halfway through a 2-month visit with my parents, without a discreet sex-toy to my name, I finally broke down and ordered what I thought would be 3 'discreet' toys--the Incognito lipstick vibe, the Discretion compact vibe, and Dr. Laura Berman's Lina pen vibe. The package arrived and was smuggled to my room without incident; however, now I have 3 VERY obvious sex-toy packages of which to dispose without my parents noticing. In addition, the Lina has the Berman logo on it and "On-Off-Open" printed on it, and the lid of the 'Discretion' actually says "DISCRETION: California Exotic Novelties"! Gar! So much for passing them off discreetly as a pen or powder compact! What's the point of even making a discreetly-shaped toy if you're going to label the freaking thing in ink/paint? Sorry, straying from the main topic of the post, but reading your stories made me hope I DON'T have a more interesting anecdote to post here in the near future...

Bahahahaha! You truly are all in quite the predicament! DD, I'm so sorry! Perhaps you could put the packaging at the bottom of a trash bag with maybe the remains of your new years lobster tail on top so no one would want to dig through it? Yes, I've been known to do things like that! =P Once when I was still living at home with parents, I dumped a can of vegetable beef soup on top of stuff I didn't want anyone to see and they thought it was vomit. Heh, gross I know but....my secret was safe!

As far as packaging for discreet vibes......the diamond hope actually comes in it's metal case covered in a white cardboard sheath.....that's it. The only thing that got pitched was the white cardboard sleeve.

In the pink......froot loops smell great! =P

Good luck to you all!

Your parents really sound great! I don't think either one of my parents would have been so open... I'd give anything to have my dad back and be worried about hiding sex toys from him again. I think if my mom found one she would do kind of what beautiful dreamers did.......just try to not look at it and pretend it didn't exist! =P

I'm glad to hear you can be open about sex with your parents - your Dad at least.

My 19 year old son tells me about his sexual adventures. It makes me feel good that we have such a good relationship that he confides in me about this.

Dame Demi, I'm in the flip situation as you are. I'm the Mom hiding my sex toys from my son. As open as he is, I doubt he'd want to know about my collection. Kids like to think of their parents as non-sexual.

For the most part you'd be correct. "Kids like to think of their parents as non-sexual." But my mom went through a operation after having me, a hysterectomy *i think thats the right one, ovaries taken out?* and she was never told. she thought she was getting her tubes tied. so for 18-20 years she's had no sex drive at all and their relationship has grown harder now. that's the reason why my dad's interested in my store, trying to find something that might help her some. =\

I had a hysterectomy four years ago too, including the removal of my ovaries. That hasn't put a dent in my interest in sex. There could be other factors affecting your Mom's libido. If she has no ovaries and especially if she's not taking estrogen - as I am - she could be much drier and more fragile inside, which could make sex a lot less fun or even painful. Its called vaginal atrophy. Or maybe she's just always had a low libido. Some women do.

Pink, We hijacked your thread. I'm so sorry. I haven't provided one amusing anecdote.

Went out to a New Year's Party last night. My mom said that my dress was nice. My husband upon hearing then said, that it must not have been an acceptable dress for the party,and he failed in purchasing it.

We're always been very open with our kids. Our 29 y/o daughter is much more open about talking to us than the 23 y/o boy. She would not be surprised at our collection (unless it is at the size of it). She says she is just happy we are happy. Our son always says "it's more information that I want to know" whenever we start to tell him any big tale (which hubby does just to make him turn red).
I hope both of them feel like they can come talk to us about anything-including sex.

Hmm I actually have my mom read my EF reviews..

I gave my mom my sex instruction books too.. and also showed her my fleshlight.

I haven't talked to her BF much but when I told him and my mom I wanted to get into a job teaching about sex he thought my ideas were great and laughed a few times.. so maybe I can talk to him some too..

I really don't have any boundaries with my mom I talk about anything on my mind..... I kinda wish she had some advice for me.. But she doesn't really have the answers to most of my questions..

I'm not sure if you've seen them yet but Neutrogena just came out with a new line of pink grapefruit scented face cleansers and body scrubs. They smell positively scrumptious and only cost $7!

I was having sex with a girlfriend several years ago, and I started to perform oral on her. You know how sometimes, a sneeze just creeps up on you unexpectedly? Well, I totally sneezed in her snatch. YEAH GO ME!

LOL! I would think that would be an occupational hazard. =P

I always find the squelching noises from air being pushed out of the vagina a little funny. Not embarrassing or mood-killing, just...well, silly!

Reminds me of an experience that happened to my Mom. My sister who was all of 8 or so at the time came out of her bedroom with an object. She showed it to my Mom in front of some family friends and my Grandparents. She asked in her tiny voice (read bullhorn) "What's this Mommy?" My mother never missed a beat she just said, "It's a vibrator, put it away and stay out of my bedroom." All I can say is way to go Mom!

LOL I had a similar experience that went one step farther...I was on top of my lover and I was moaning like usual when suddenly from nowhere I sneezed and then, horror of horrors farted! He just laughed and fucked me silly, it's still one of his fondest memories! Mainly cause I turn all shades of beet red when he brings it up....

My roommate is one of the sweetest, but most innocent people I've ever met. I have a tendency to browse EF in the background while I'm studying, and once I forgot to minimize the browser window... on a rather colorful selection of large dildos. Her reaction when she entered the room was priceless:

"What are those? They're so pretty!" She steps closer to my computer to get a better look. "Wait, are those... are those...?" After long pause, eyes wide, she starts to spell : "P-e-n-i... OMG!" She then proceeded to pretend that her eyes and brain had been burned by what she saw, teasing me about trying to corrupt her.

She took it pretty well, since she, like many of my closest friends, knows I review for EF. But she still teases me about it every so often. Her face was priceless!
