ok. so my MOH is throwing my bachlorette. shes taking care of everything and told me the only thing i need to do is let her know who i want her to invite and to show up. im a little nervous because the evening is starting off with a sex toy party. im not offended by it or anything like that. im just a little nervous because 1) ive never been to one (was supposed to go but friend decided to have it while i was deployed) and 2) i really only talk about that kind of stuff with a few of my closest friends. i guess im a little bit of a prude. i still have to fight the urge to giggle when FI and i go into a sex toy/lingerie store. lol! since i didn’t want a bridal shower shes also kind of making this first part of the evening kind of like a shower. apparently i can make a wish list and the guests can buy me stuff off of it if they choose to. like i said before….im a lil bit of a prude and i never really tell anyone exactly what kind of sex toys i have. my FI is excited about it. he is not a prude at all. in fact…the sex toys i do have are the ones he’s bought me. he wont be there but is excited to see what i come home with. its still a couple months away. guess i just need you bees to help give me the courage to do this. lol!

I can totally understand being nervous and self-concious about opening up personal gifts in front of a crowd. I’ve been to my fair share of Passion Parties, but even I drew the line at the “Lingerie Shower” because I don’t find it amusing to open up those kinds of presents in front of people.
I would have your MOH spread the word that you would prefer items of a more conservative nature- massage oils, lotions, etc., vs vibrators and crazy sex toys, and nice, pretty lingerie/nighties/robes vs crazy crotchless panties or the like. I think it’s possible to do a “Personal Shower” in a very tasteful way and in a way that you would feel comfortable.
There is still the possibility that someone will go over the top- I would just giggle and say “Thanks!” and move on to the next gift if that happens. 🙂

I don’t know if this makes me sound terrible or what but I like the idea. I think it’s a fun way to kick off your party. I dont know that I would have friends buy me sex toys but having the party and being there would be fun. Is there anyone on your list that you think would be offended? if so, then I might reconsider. Your MOH could have people still buy you gifts but maybe regular registry items? Toy parties I’ve been too have always been a good time to laugh with the girls. Dont’ worry too much about it. Have fun!

Ok, I would be a giggling little girl the whole night. I guess you can call me a prude! I wouldn’t be comfy talking about that stuff, or having my friends know what I will be using at home. Ah! But, this is going to be a fun/funny night. So don’t be nervous, just a lil anxious.

It doesn’t have to be about sex toys-that IS personal to a lot of people. I second miss root and go for pretty nighties and the like.

I’ve been to you; it’s not that bad. Mostly it was just a bunch of girls giggling and having a good time.

i think if its just a sex toy party and not a shower then i’ll be fine. i’ll do alot of giggling but i think it would be fun. oh i forgot to mention…..the party isn’t going to be at a house. its going to be in the party room at a bar. we’re apparently going bar hopping after the party is over.
