Penchant for Porn Shops

I made cakes in a lovely bakery for eight years, so when February rolls around I start thinking in terms of heart-shaped cakes covered in chocolate ganache, chocolate curls and raspberries. Does anyone else think raspberries look like nipples? Fat, pebbly red nipples – every time I see a raspberry, I see nipples. Fitting, hmm?

Since it’s the Month Of Luuuurve we are all supposed to buy Hallmark cards, go out on dates and have lots of sex, right? Well, okay. I mean, why not? It’s butt-cold outside, the dead of winter and there’s nothing else to do. You all know what I do to get in the mood for sex – I read erotic romance. (You should too. Buy mine!) And since I just finished the first round of edits on SoloPlay, the second book in the Come Again series, I also have sex toys on the brain. Naturally that led me into the local porn shop…

…where I found myself debating the relative merits of products X and Y with the sexy shop girl. Why does that always happen to me? πŸ˜‰

“Oh my God,” she said. “Have you tried this?” She led me over to the lubricant display and pointed out the tingly clit cream.

Now, I don’t know about you, but when a girl who actually works in a porn shop recommends a product, you bet your ass I’m going to try it. And I think you should too. In fact, they were trial-size and I bought an extra! So here’s the deal: comment on this blog before the 6th of February, and I will enter your name in a drawing for the tingly clit cream. Unites States only please, unless you know for certain it will cost me less than $6 to send it. I’ll announce the winner next Monday and send it Priority Mail, so the lucky lover will have it in time for Valentine’s Day weekend!

We can compare notes! Apparently, a little dab will do ya…

    1. Yes, I did! And yes, it did! I think the active ingredient is peppermint oil so the first few minutes had me wondering if I’d had a close encounter with a peppermint patty. It was cool. Hot. Definitely a unique sensation and what came after that defies description and cannot be explained by reading the ingredient label… anybody got a menthol? *fanning self*

  1. Advice we’d all be wise to follow: Having lots of sex in February and listening to the suggestions of porn shop employees unless they weigh over 300 lbs, are male and eating a burrito when giving said suggestion. Ok, the caveat is my own. Thanks, Miranda! I’d love to share that cream with my honey!

  2. I love my local pleasure shop, since I have hit that sexual peak I think they know me by name now LOL ;). I will definitely check this one out too. Can’t wait to see what you have lined up for March (my birthday month woohoo).

    1. Peaking is good! And you’ll like what the Forbidden Bookshelf girls have lined up for your birthmonth – erotic romance authors all month blogging to the tune of “Tied Up.” Gonna be awesome!

  3. If I read your Bottoms Up (again) and use the cream at the same time, can I be entered in the drawing? If it’s better than the first time…Oh. My. God.

  4. Intriguing, I have to say, Miranda! I haven’t had a chance to set foot in a porn shop yet (*gasp!*) so I haven’t heard any good recommendations live and in person yet! Keep the recs coming πŸ˜‰

  5. My porn shop tried to recommend something to me and I wound up turning the both of themon to it! lol It’s the wee vibe πŸ™‚ it’s amazong and no batteries it plugs up!!! Please count me in for the contest! πŸ™‚

    1. Okay, it must mean something that you are the second person to recommend that vibe today. (No I don’t usually spend my day chatting about vibrators. Today is special.) I’ll have to put it on my TBR list – To Be Ridden! Thanks!

      1. lol I really is amazing but one tip you can get it WAY cheaper at Amazon (go figure right? lol) πŸ™‚ That thing is expensive butoh so worth it with or without your partner! πŸ™‚

  6. Hubby loves when I go. He is too embarassed to go in but loves what I pick up for us. I’m actually friends with the manager at the shop I go to and trust me, I’ve learned alot from her. She’s married with kids and its fun to talk about stuff like that with someone else who can relate. I’m older so sometimes I need the help and again, hubby enjoys what I bring home. Plus, a girl can’t have enough B.O.B.’s in her life…………..

    1. I hear you! Before I started chatting with the shop girl, I texted my husband pictures of products X and Y to get his opinion. I’m usually a both kind of girl, but both is hard on the budget, ya know? Yay for husbands in favor of batteries!
