Yesterday I read an interesting article here about the worst things to charge on your credit cards. Apparently some purchase you charge to your favorite plastic accessory "...can make you look desperate, unstable, or like you're looking for an escape from financial worries."
Included in this list are things like marriage counseling (unstable), cash advances and lottery tickets (desperate), traffic tickets (broke), and alcohol (escaping). Personal pampering products weigh in at #6 (escaping), but what amazed me was #1. - adult toys.
Adult toys? Really? I don't think they make me unstable (unless I'm fucking standing up and lose my balance). I've never thought buying (much less using) adult toys made me desperate. And I buy a lot of sex toys : vibrators, dildos, bullets, and bondage gear. And a lot of other things. It's not that I don't have a lot of sex - I do. I buy them as an accompaniment for sex. Could I do without them? Yep. Do I want to? Nope. Are new toys fun? You bet.
I don't think they help me escape from financial worries either. I'll admit that when I'm having an orgasm, the last thing on my mind is the bills, but I don't think they are a particular escape from financial worries. Especially when I think about how much I spent on sex toys for the month. Hmm. Maybe then I use them as an escape to keep from thinking how much I spent on my last order ...
The article talks about not using a credit card at Wal-mart or a dollar store as well. Think about it - millions of Americans use credit cards at Wal-mart. There's many reasons why people shop there - good prices, everything in one location, and even that it's the only store in town. And a dollar store? I can spend a lot at the dollar store. I'm not desperate when I shop there, but the money I save can help me buy more dildos.
I guess I've been flagged as desperate and unstable. Oh, well. I'm off to play with the new toy that arrived today and escape worrying about what the credit card company thinks...
I am drowning in porn! I realized this the other night when putting away some new movies I'd reviewed. They would not fit in the cabinet! So today's task is to go through and weed out the good from the bad. The wheat from the chaff, so to speak. I hope to find a reasonable number to get rid of, and I suspect this is going to be more difficult than I expect. But, maybe not.
I've been the happy owner of a Form 6 by Jimmyjane for the past week, and all I can say is wow! This is one rockin' vibrator! The only downside of rechargeable toys is they have to charge before use - you can't just rip them out of the package and enjoy. But, other than that, this is phenomenal, and one of the most powerful toys I have. A review cumming soon!
