Siobhan Muir, a wonderful writer and friend of mine, asked me a month ago when I began planning surprise day posts:
Can I talk about toys?
In our kinky corner of the world, “toys” can mean any number of things, right? So I agreed–and found that Siobhan meant shoes! Shoes! Ana doesn’t like shoes. 😀 But in the spirit of inclusiveness, let’s enjoy Siobhan and her shoes. Welcome, Siobhan! For more information about Siobhan, read this Fika article or visit her blog.
Happy Holidays! It’s time for all good little girls and good little boys to get their hands on some naughty little toys!
Wait, that can’t be right, can it?
Hang on, let me do some figuring here… good = nice, bad = naughty, good toys and naughty toys… and good naughty toys… I think I’m gonna be naughty this year. 😀
So today, boys and girls, we’re going to be talking about toys today on Ana’s Advent Calendar. When you hear the word “toys” what do you think of first? Matchbox cars and Barbie dolls? Ereaders, iPhones, and tablets? Or vibrators, nipple clamps, and floggers?
Whatever your definition, everyone wants some sort of toy for Christmas and everyone has their own definition of them. I have two kinds of toys I like. The electronic kind: Kindle Fire, smartphones, tablets for traveling writing, and digital cameras. And the more erotic variety: vibrators, leather cuffs, floggers, and lingerie. Lingerie, by the way, includes shoes for me. 😉
Let’s focus on the erotic side of things. Toys are for playtime and playtime can mean anything you want it to mean. Remember when you were a kid, you dressed up like a police officer or a fireman or a doctor or you even played house? This is kinda like that and there are all sorts of costumes available for those professions if you so desire. But in this kind of adult playtime (after the kids go to be or are at a sleepover), you can dress up as the local whore, the badass pimp, the Domme, the vixen, heck even the buttoned up Librarian (do you know what they do in the stacks at night?). For those roles, maybe you’ll need a whip, handcuffs, leather cuffs, or a flogger. Maybe you’ll need some accents like nipple chains and male chastity cages. I like the thigh-high f*ck-me boots. 😀
The point is everyone should play, even when they get older – particularly when they get older. That’s what the magic of the holidays are really about. The wonder children express isn’t for them alone. Just because your tastes have changed and your toys have changed (yeah, baby!) doesn’t mean you have to stop playing. Playtime is better with friends and it’s meant to be fun.
Mr. SM and I make it a point to play a couple times a week. Not only does it remind us that life can be good, it also strengthens the love and joy we have in each other. I get to dress up in fun clothes (and even funn-er shoes) and play with him for our mutual benefit and enjoyment. Sometimes we use specific toys (vibrator, butt plugs, genital jewelry – which is really hot on a guy, I gotta say), other times it’s just role playing. I still want to try the one from When a Man Loves a Woman where Meg Ryan hits on Andy Garcia in a coffee shop as if he’s a stranger when he’s really her husband. Actually very romantic in my mind. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VSyKVgi0_8
So this year, as the holidays approach, take a little time to play with your partners, whoever or how many there may be. Find just the right toys to stuff into their stockings and maybe let Santa know what kinds of toys you’re dreaming of. And I wish you a very Happy Holiday. 😀
So my question for all of you to be included in a chance to win your Advent Calender prize: If you were given a choice of any toy for Christmas, naughty or otherwise regardless of price, what would you ask Santa for this year?
