Kate Richards wrote to me a while ago, asking what she could contribute to the Advent Calendar. I thought for a bit and suggested, “How about a gift certificate for sex toys?”
I think she picked herself off the floor a few hours later.
Today, we’ll be doing something a bit different. Kate has set up a story scenario, and at my request has deliberately chosen non-gender-specific names. You can write F/F, M/M, M/F, F/M…whatever your heart desires! You can write your own story response, or you can add to a response someone else has already begun.
Please try to keep references to sex and sexual acts…ahem…discreet, shall we say? 😉
(Disclaimer: Neither Kate nor Governing Ana has received any compensation, financial or otherwise, for mentioning Adam and Eve in this post or offering the gift certificate as a prize. Adam and Eve won’t know if you look at other sex toy online stores…because we know how awful it is to make you look at sex toys. :P)
I often wonder how it would be to win a really nifty prize…like the Advent Calendar’s 50 dollar Adam and Eve gift card. And as I always do when I try to figure out how something would work, I wrote a story about it.
When Lee and Sam met, it was all fireworks and rock-the-earth passion. But time passes, routines build and even the most passionate lovers can drift into a familiarity that drives the excitement out of life. Yes, even Lee and Sam…once envied by their friends as the Couple of the Decade. One evening, after Lee put away the leftover meatloaf and tater tots, waiting for Sam to finish watching yet another reality TV show, an event happened to change everything. Lee clicked the computer mouse to play Candy Crush Saga and…well, here’s what happened:
Lee and Sam…and the Magnificent Prize!
Lee, leaping up and down in glee: Honey, I won a fifty dollar gift card from the fabulous Advent Calendar event held by the even more fabulous Anastasia Vitsky.
Sam: You’re blocking the screen.
Lee, scooting to the side: Sorry, but this is a life-changer.
Sam, in a disgruntled voice: Who really thinks these things are real? And look at the outfit on that one…do you think they make them dress that way? What a bunch of idiots.
Lee, crestfallen: But I won! Don’t you want to help me pick out my prize?
Sam, distracted: This is my favorite show. I need to see what happens.
Lee: Okay…but if you don’t participate, there’s no telling what I might buy….
Sam: That’s nice, bring me some ice cream if you’re having some, okay?
Lee: Do I look like I’m having ice cream? I’m going shopping.
Sam: Make it chocolate, thanks. Hey, don’t let him talk to you that way. Who puts these shows on TV anyway? Do they think we’re dumb enough to just sit here and….
Ut oh, dear readers, I got stuck. I need your help! Well, Lee and Sam do.
Clearly, our loving couple has fallen into dire straits. Can even a 50 dollar Adam and Eve gift card save this relationship? Return them to the couple who made love on the hood of their car on Mulholland Drive, overlooking the lights of Los Angeles and didn’t even notice the police arrive…on the night they met? Who went to Tahiti for the weekend on the spur of the moment? Who didn’t come out of their hotel room the entire time and never did see the beach there? Who brought one another little gifts, stuck love notes in brown bag lunches (because after Tahiti they were broke for a long time, ever price last minute trips to Tahiti?)?
It’s up to you to save them! Finish the story, what does Lee do to save the day? There is a prize in it for the best scenario. So use your imagination…and the Adam and Eve online catalogue… www.adameve.com to show how winning such a fabulous prize can change everything.
Look for the much-anticipated sequel for Ana’s Advent Calendar 2014! “Sex Toy Story 2: Now With Improved Buzz Lightyear!”
