As a self-confessed novice Lesbian (11 years ago), I decided to surprise my then girlfriend (my now wife), with a sex toy. We had been dating for all of 3 months and were both extremely adventurous, so bringing a sex toy into the bedroom was, naturally, the next step!
I stumbled onto a website that sold toys on-line - there was no way I was going into a sex toy shop in Somerset West, where I was well known just to be seen by my local librarian, buying a strap-on!
Well…Spank me gently Georgina! I thought a strap-on was a strap-on was a strap-on! Not true – there were BIG ones and little ones, vibrating and still (almost like Valpré), double sided and singles, pink, blue, black and yellow…how was I ever going to make my choice? The thought did occur to me to just go down to the sex shop but bumping into a client or that darn librarian would have just been mortifying!
So I chose one that was pretty – since my girlfriend was pretty! I didn’t want to scare her and make her run for the hills screaming “Loony Lesbian on the Loose” at the top of her lungs! Somerset West was a small town then – I would never get any business again and would have to move to Pofadder and make a living from alphabetizing books in the local library with the librarian watching over me!
I paid the R256 (postage and packaging included) – thank goodness for modest packaging! Imagine going to collect a parcel at the little post office in Heldevue and out comes a box with SEX TOYS ON-LINE stamped all over it. The only indicator that my parcel was that of a suspicious nature was the little label on the back that said: If undelivered, please return to XXX Manufacturers of fine Plastics! I demurely informed the post office lady that it was Tupperware!
