We may all be on the same page in knowing that everyone has sex, but at some point, a line has to be drawn as to how much you want to share about your sex life. It’s one thing to verbally share 80% of the intimate details of your bumping and grinding, but it’s another thing to share sex toys with your friends.
On two separate occasions in my life, friends have chosen to help themselves to sex toys of mine. Not only did they not ask permission — permission that would not be granted — but they actually used things that had CLEARLY already been used multiple times, and yet that didn’t seem to be an issue for them. While one of these people was a close friend, another was a woman who was staying in my apartment. In both cases I was horrified, and in the former case my friend shrugged it off explaining that she was horny and we’d been friends “forever anyway.” I told her to keep the damn thing, or I was going to throw it out. She chose to keep it.
I understand that in the heat of the moment you may want to reach for something to spice up what’s happening, but personally, I’d like to think someone else’s sex toy would not be one of them. However, maybe I’m not as free-wheelin’ and fun as I thought, and sharing used sex toys is now all the rage.
But rage or not, here are some legitimate reasons why sharing sex toys is never OK.
