The door shut behind me and I sighed with relief. After months of erotic writing I found that I still had certain areas that I was shy about. I could walk into a sex shop and chat up everyone there without blushing - but a drug store? It still made me uncomfortable.
Perhaps if the cashiers weren't always teenagers I wouldn't care. But when I find a 16 year old boy ringing through my condoms and lube- it just makes me want to get out of there as quickly as possible. Silly really that I would even give a passing thought to imaginary adolescent snickering - the thought of it just annoyed me more than anything.
The other night I made my first lube purchase. Surprising at my age that it wouldn't have come up as necessary before now. I guess I don't have too many issues with moisture.
I found that it became a necessity once I began doing product reviews. When was simply using my toys because they were fun and I was in the mood it wasn't a problem. But when I began to encounter deadlines - well the playtime became a bit less leisurely and more of a demand. And sometimes? I just haven't been in the mood- which made the review that much harder to do.
Lube seemed a simply solution, although I was fully aware that I was doing things a bit backwards. Just because I could now insert the toy with ease didn't mean that my mindset was in anyway improved. A valuable lesson here boys: with women, it's much more about the mind than it is about the body.
One does have to be aroused to enjoy the toy (and the experience). Playing with the toy does not make you aroused. It just doesn't work that way.
One thing that I hadn't counted on - which definitely did NOT assist in the arousal experience? How positively frigid the lube would turn out to be. Chemicals or not, the next time I don't have a willing partner to assist? I'm going for the warming kind - what a shock to the system!
Toy companies? Paying attention? That'll be my next request...
