cockringThis weekend I was at a conference meeting lots of new people. At dinner with some of these new acquaintances, we got on the topic of sex toys. This is a fairly common occurrence when you work at Babeland but usually, when the talk turns to vibrators and dildos, I'm the one with the awesome stories. Not this time.One of my dinner companions told a story about when he was in undergrad and worked at a sexual health information center. They gave advice and sold sex toys at cost. They had a limited but high quality selection. His parents knew that he worked there and at first they were a little put off by it. They were also learning that he was gay at the same time so it was a time of change.Christmas rolls around and the tradition in this person's family was to e-mail the other people and let them know what you wanted, then they would get it for you. So, my new acquaintance gets an e-mail from his father that says that he wants something for Christmas but he's too embarrassed to write it in an e-mail so his son should just click on the link. When he clicked on it, it went to a page all about cock-rings! His dad wanted his son to buy him a cock-ring for Christmas.Instead of freaking out, the son went back to the information center at which he worked and started asking around about the best cock-ring. Everyone had a different opinion so he ended up getting his dad three cock-rings and a book. He put the box under his Dad's side of the bed and then gave him a book during the regular Christmas present opening.I absolutely loved hearing about this. What really made it stand out to me was how shy the dad was. We have people come into Babeland with their parents or children and they seem pretty chill about everything. But with this story, it's clear that if the dad wanted a good quality toy from someone who knew and it just turned out that the expert was his son! I think that takes real courage in some relationships to open up that way - especially since we rarely think of anyone older than however old we currently are as having sex, wanting pleasure and intimacy and wanting to try new things.
