I have this memory….I’m sitting on the floor with 3 boys and 2 girls and there’s a bottle in the center of us. I was probably 12 or 13 years old (or thereabout – I have a TERRIBLE memory about dates and times). I was awkward (gawky) and uncomfortable. With my baby blue cat’s eye glasses and innocence I gave it a twirl.
The bottle spinned and spinned and finally pointed to the boy sitting across from me. UGH – Not Barry S….I had this love/hate relationship with him, at the age of 12. OK, it was time to do the DEED. My first kiss with a B-O-Y and it had to be him. I closed my eyes (hey, that’s what they did in the movies) and went in. Our glasses clunked together and his braces got caught on my lip. But, we did it….we kissed for the VERY FIRST TIME. I came slightly scarred (my lip was bleeding), but so proud of myself that I had FINALLY kissed a boy.
Forty+ years later and I’m home with my hubby. I had been asked to write about my choice of product from the Eden Fantasys catalog of sex toys. Eden Fantasys is chocked full of adult toys and love games that you can buy from the privacy of your own home (and save the embarrassment of walking into the likes of the “Hustler” store on Sunrise Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale).
I could have chosen the obvious – one of the toys that we women hide in our lingerie drawer, or maybe an outfit to spice things up in the bedroom. Even better – they carry one of my FAVORITE products – the Kama Sutra Oil line (Rob, if you’re reading this – I won’t be dragging you into any more sex shops when we go to visit NY looking for this stuff). I didn’t choose any of these……
The minute I saw the Spin Me Game of Mischief, I was immediately taken back to that first kiss and KNEW that I wanted it. Hey, I already have my oil and my toy named after a little furry creature – but I didn’t own any GAMES.
Spin Me is a new twist on the traditional game of Spin the Bottle. The bottle itself reminds me of the glass soda bottle that we actually used that first time (only it’s opaque white). The difference is that there are strips of cardboard with “suggestions” written on them inside the bottle. For the most part the instructions are rather mild (no ACTUAL sex) – just make sure that you have some ice cubes, a blindfold and maybe some pillows nearby. You know, the usual stuff that you use when you play games like Monopoly or Scrabble.
Mr. S. balked when I suggested that we play “a game.” But, if he wasn’t going to play, then I wasn’t going to play (*wink, *wink). Oh and I had to PROMISE to watch the football game with him later on (is that what they mean by “If you want to play, you have to pay?”). This game is very SENSUAL rather than sexual, which I liked (typical woman) and it was TOTALLY worth the deal that I made (sorry folks, you’re not getting any details).
If your partner loves games, this might be a fun holiday gift and it would be a GREAT gift for a bachelorette party. While you’re looking around, check out Eden Fantasys online magazine sexis or their BLOG to read everything you want to know about sex. They even have a community forum for exchanging ideas, asking questions, etc.
