Nothing much happened this weekend, too many teenagers around. Doesn't mean we didn't have some mind blowing sex, we did, but that's normal for us. However, no spanking occurred, but the dominance was in evidence. That's fun, and needed too.
I'm having a retail therapy type day. I went to my favorite consignment shop and found several things, including a white jean mini skirt that showcases my butt to nice advantage. I think Musicman will really like it. Hmmm....maybe it will get me that spanking I needed yesterday but had no privacy to obtain. Bonus, it's 3 sizes smaller then I was wearing this time last year.
Along the lines of retail therapy is one of the tasks that Musicman gave me which I have yet to address. In addition to a wish list of things I would like to try, he suggested we get some toys. Seems easy enough right? Well...not really.
We don't have the greatest history with the use of toys. Years ago we had a vibrator. It didn't get much use and I don't know when it went missing, but we have never been inspired to replace it. I also have a set of Ben Wa balls. They are very pretty, all gold and shiny. They currently live in one of Musicman's dresser drawers. I tried them several times with little to no effect. After getting one stuck and worrying for hours if I would end up in the ER getting it fished out, we put them away. A huge disappointment if you ask me.
I suggested we go over the border to the next state as they have a big adult toy sore we could visit. It's not too far and would be an easy drive. Musicman didn't like that idea. He prefers we shop online for our toys. I'm a bit leery of that as I have a history of picking not so reputable companies. I have been scammed a few times. So embarrassing!!!
Instead of just Googling toys, I remembered that I had read on other blogs about edenfantasys. So I checked it out. For a newbie like me it was a bit overwhelming. So much to choose from, and I want to try it all. I signed up for the newsletter figuring if I got frequent updates it would remind me to tell Musicman about it.
As it turns out I didn't need to tell him about it. Last Sunday, prior to our firefly hunting adventure he had me get my laptop so we could look at toys. I went to the edenfantasys website. We looked at and discussed several things. I did add several things to a wishlist to look at again later, but we made no firm decisions.
He gave me the task of picking something, but I don't know what I want. He talked about maybe getting a ball gag, due to my lack of volume control. I will admit that even though I know I have no volume control I never considered trying a gag, until I read this post by Jake. It featured this gag which totally intrigued me.
Obviously this is not a beginner gag, though edenfantasys does have one just like it. This didn't make the wishlist, a scarf or some such thing would most likely be a better place to start. I did locate one, launder it and it is currently waiting patiently on our headboard to be pressed into use. It could also be used as a blindfold, something I think would be fun too.
I looked at butt plugs. I'm not so good with anal and would like to learn to do that better. Musicman seemed sceptical about that. I think he is reluctant because of my history with it. It seems like in order for it to go well, the moon and stars need to be in just the right alignment, which apparently, based on my history, occurs less often then the leap year. I still really want to try though. We watched an instructional video on a beginner set. The only thing I really remember is that the girl in the video did a flame test on them. We both thought that was funny. When Musicman commented it was nice to know that if our home burned our butt plugs would survive, I about lost it laughing.
Of course I had to check out the selection of paddles and crops. Really, what spanko wouldn't at least browse those? I never thought I would like a crop. Then I read a few posts by the wonderful Conina about having the crop used on her breasts. Ooooh, yes please, that sounds like fun.
The last thing I looked at was a selection of vibrators. I know I said we had one and it rarely ever got used, nor were we in any hurry to replace it. Well, ya see, Musicman has a goal. His goal is teaching me to squirt. I'm multi orgasmic, but have never been able to achieve that. He would really like it if I could learn how to do it.
I certainly enjoy his attempts to teach me how to do that. I even think I have come pretty close more then once, but so far it hasn't happened. That is why I looked at the vibrators, maybe one of them would help with that. I've read that some women can't squirt, I hope I'm not one of them. That would be a total bummer.
So, what do you think? What toys do you have? Do you have a favorite toy? Have you ever used edenfantasys, or is there another company you like? If left to my own devices I would probably go hog wild and order all kinds of stuff. That pretty much guarantees that it would be overwhelming for both of us when faced with the actual evidence. Not the outcome I am trying to achieve here. Come shopping with me, any and all help, suggestions and advice is welcome.
