Really? Intimidated? I just don’t get this.
Ok, I can see possibly being slightly embarrassed walking into an actual sex toy store, but intimidated by an online sex toy store?
You are probably wondering why I mention this. Ok, or maybe you’re not, if you’re a regular here. If you’re new, we have previously discussed men being intimidated by sexual confidence, and also who bought your sex toys.
A man I was recently dating informed me he was intimidated by my “possible” level of experience.
Knowing neither of us has had large numbers of partners, I asked what he meant.
He is intimated to be with me, uhh, physically because of my affiliation with this adult toy store.
??? (thought in my head: shit, not another intimidated male)
I don’t get it. How can one have anything to do with the other? It’s not like I have a massive selection of whips, chains, or other items from the store. Really, I don’t.
He’s also intimidated by my desire to practice conscious love-making through Tantra. It’s not like I suggested WE needed to do this. I just expressed an interest in the practice.
Holy Dildos and Deep Breaths Batman! Fercryingoutloud, you’d think I was some ex-porn star with mad skills.
He needed to stop thinking I was going to be some superwoman in bed or he’d likely be seriously disappointed in the event we ever made it that far. (We didn’t.)
And I thought I was prone to panic attacks. There is only room for one panicky person in a relationship. It’s me, ok?
So what does any self-respecting, self-loving gal do? She goes to the online toy store. Hmm, I may never have to date again!
Ok, so maybe now I know why men feel intimidated by such things. But you really shouldn’t – inanimate toys don’t compare to the touch and feel of warm flesh.
Valentine’s day is coming – you should, too.
