So I’m watching “Along for the Bride” on TLC and the woman getting married has her adult daughter as maid of honor. The bridesmaids are shopping for bachelorette party accessories/gifts and they go to a sex shop. The maid of honor refuses to go in because she feels uncomfortable picking out sex toys for her mom. The other bridesmaids (who are closer to her mom’s age) roll their eyes, tell her to “man up,” and think since she’s an adult and has a kid of her own (and therefore has had sex), she shouldn’t have a problem with it.
Uhh what? I’m with the maid of honor on this one. I’m no prude, but I would not want to pick out sex toys for my mother and soon-to-be stepfather!
How about you, Bees?

I would not! That would be so uncomfortable….
But, I’m sure there are families out there where this would be no big deal.

Yeaaahhhh.. my mom is getting remarried this year so I can kind of picture this scenario and no way would any of the aforementioned and my mother be spoken about in the same sentence.

Yeah no… actual sex toys no. But if they were just going in to pick up like penis straws or other stuff for the actual party, not my mother’s extra curriculars, I’d be ok with it.

I’m fine with joking around with my mom about sex, and making jokes about sex toys, but I don’t think I could actually go into a sex shop with what my moim might…like…on my mind without going crazy.

NO NO NO NO NO! My brain burns just thinking about it. That is disgusting!!

I’m totally in the minority, but I’d have no problem with it. That being said, my Mum has pulled out her toys on many occassions and chatted about them, when I was younger (19+)… I’d know exactly what she’d be into. I’d never be in this scenario, however, as I don’t talk to her anymore.

@SapphireSun: You made me laugh out loud. I’d be okay with penis straws and the like too, just not the…other stuff.

@SapphireSun: @Dialysate: In the episode one of the things they bought were anal beads, so… yeah this goes beyond kitschy bachelorette party decorations.
