Never being able to look at him the same again...

    Ok, So we are out to dinner with a couple aquaintances we met - and somehow the discussion digresses into teasing sex talk.

    One guy comes out with the comment that he gave his partner a 'prince's wand' yesterday for his B'Day present.

    OK - Call me a prude or just naive; I must have looked puzzled - I had never heard of one before.

    They then proceeded to enlighten me as to what one was...

    My stomach flipped... I could barely look at them for the rest of the evening; I am sure they were a little puzzled as to why we became so subdued and cut the evening short.

    I know there are a lot of things out there that I am just not interested in; and I don't object to a few toys to spice things up once in a while, but..

    What the hell can you say? I don't think I can ever look at this person the same way again.

    Have you ever encountered something private about an aquaintance that just immediately changed your view of them forever?

    Well, I worked with two people on a project for more than a year, before I found out that they were married to each other. For some reason, that was kinda weird.

    Then, there's a very well known guy in my field, who I knew by reputation and sight, but never knew personally. Eventually, I found out that he is also well-known for hooking up - amateur or pro - on every road trip. Somehow, I think of that every time I see him, or read one of his papers, now. I don't know why, I guess it's not really that strange.

    Hmm, well I googled a Princes Wand too and it doesn't do anything for me. But, each to their own. There's all sorts of variations in sexuality and stimulation, so you're quite likely to come across things you don't appreciate or understand.

    Keep them as friends for the very reasons you began being their buddy. and try not to think about the little jewellery down there.

    I think with stuff like this, the problem usually isn't with whatever information you find out. The problem usually lies in their over-willingness to share the information.

    Ah yes...the Prince's Wand. Ewww...

    When people start to go down the road of "too much information," I just cut them off and let them know we are not discussing the topic.

    One day I was walking to lunch with a coworker, and for some reason she got on the subject of oral sex, and started asking me questions about receiving oral sex. I just looked at her and said, "At what point did you decide any of these questions were appropriate?" She laughed it off.

    If people want to talk about general sex questions, I'm all for the discussion. But, when people asking me what I like to do in bed, that's when I cut them off. That would be between me and my partner (if I had one). If I want someone to know, I'll tell them, but it's kind of rude to pry into someone's sex life IMO.

    On the other side of this, I had a friend working in a sex toy shop for a while, so one day I spent the afternoon there having him explain to me what all the devices were for. That's how I know what the Prince's Wand is.

    What the jeffin hell is a princes wand?

    Oh dear! Just googled Princes Wand, and it just looks freaking painful! But hay each to their own.

    Its funny to see what comes up when you google it and look at the images. I saw a pic of Prince Harry next to a pic of a guy inserting said Wand, and then a pic of Harry Potter!! LOL!

    Ok, so I just had to Google this... sometimes, ignorance really is bliss... LOL

    As for that conversation... sounds like a case of TMI. I'd try not to think about it, and I wouldn't let it ruin the friendship... although I might tactfully let them know that I really didn't need to know those details about them...

    Personally, I have no problem with changing the subject when it starts getting into TMI territory, and usually its no big deal. There have been times when I've had to just walk away from a conversation because the other person wouldn't change the subject. There isn't much out there that shocks or offends me any more, but there's just some things I do not want to know about certain people...

    I'd like to think that I come from a unique gereration. Very few things are taboo with us.
    We're more like say it, just don't show it, or at least most of the people I know are.

    But females are the worst!

    A female friend, god are they open, at my college started telling me about how pitifully endowed her boyfriend was. She said that her last boyfriend was so big that it didn't even fit and so he'd have to thrust real hard and she would cry real bad after they were done lol. but that her current boyfriend was tiny like 3 inches and really thin which was good because she had a small vagina. She was talking so loud about how tiny her vagina was and what couldn't fit in it and everyone as this little coffee place was just staring at us. It was hilarious.

    Yeah ask me, tell me, describe to me, just don't let me see you in the act and I'm pretty much fine.
