Penis stuff is usually bachelorette not showers…

I hate the whole penis center types things. I’ve never seem them for a shower maybe for a bachlorette but a shower now way! You can refuse and make it crystal care that you will be hurt if they would do that. A shower isn’t the time or place for rowdy games like that anyways.

I’ve never ever ever seen a penis game at a shower, only a bachelorette! You should be fine. 🙂

Personally, I was very clear about NO GAMES at any events related to my wedding.  I find them excruciating!

Um, definitely the bachelorette if that type of stuff is going to go down. Showers = moms, MILs, great aunts, etc etc. Not that ladies who fall into that category can’t be raunchy, but bridal showers are definitely more in the “tea and cake” genre of event.

Woo hoo! No penis games! I too am 100% not interested in any of that kind of stuff.

Whew, OP! I am soooo happy that your friends listened to you and that there were no penis games. I wouldn’t have been interested in doing that either – not to mention that I’m super paranoid about the pictures of me that are put on the internet. Once they’re out there, they’re forever! 🙂

I’m glad you enjoyed your shower stress free.

Glad you didn’t have any penis games 🙂

The last few hens parties I’ve been to, we’ve had a very explicit understanding that what happens on tour, stays on tour – any “bad” photos etc only went on FB if they were visible ONLY to the people at the party, not for all the world to see.

99% of guests abided by that & it was fine. Except for co-worker J’s party – another woman S at the party is one of these people that tells tall tales – S was pawing at the stripper (young enough to be her son), but Mon morning in the office she was telling the world about how badly behaved everyone else was. Luckily no-one listens to this woman!
