Last week I had to take a trip, to get my second vaccination! It was such an exciting day for me. It’s always good to know I’m as safe as possible, whatever the situation. While in town I paid a visit to my local sex shop. Restrictions have eased enough for me to support local businesses. It felt rude not to stop by, especially as I was passing! And yes, I managed to grab a private moment in the private shop. So that’s another location ticked off of my scavenger hunt list.
I only popped in for some inspiration.
We are so lucky to live in a world where pretty much anything is available at the click of a button. Sometimes though, immersing yourself in new toys is what is needed. I got chatting to the manager, a lovely lady. New-ish to the world of sex toys, but certainly not inexperienced in the world of customer service. As it turned out I added to my collection based on a suggestion she made, along with an intermediate plug as I only seem to have too large or too small. Yes, this is one of the pitfalls of online shopping as an anal enthusiast whose eyes are bigger than her orifice!
While she and I were chatting an elderly couple entered.
I continued browsing as she went to help them. Her focus switched away from me I grabbed the opportunity for my own private moment in the private shop. I had to be sneaky, she was friendly but I’m not sure that me overtly getting my breasts out in her shop would have gone down too well!
I don’t know why, but I was particularly happy to see them, and to eavesdrop on their request. Had I considered that octogenarians (and upwards) may be interested in sex and kink? I’m ashamed to say that no, I hadn’t. I figured that past a certain age my desires would just stop! My mum, for example, isn’t open on subjects of sex. And she is just one generation up. Closer inspection of my local community suggests the more senior generations (65+) are almost entirely unrepresented. Particularly by women. But not this couple!
Their sex life was evidently still very important to both of them.
And why shouldn’t it be?! They were keen to maintain that connection using whatever equipment was available. More importantly for me, there wasn’t the slightest hint of embarrassment about their request. A lesson for many, even those of us born in an age where sexual freedom is, almost, expected! Sex positivity is not solely for those in the 30 to 60 age range.
It isn’t just me that has been exposing themselves in sex shops. I’m glad to see Marie has been respectful of her hosts with a cheeky flip of the skirt in Sex Flash.
Private Moment in the Private Shop is my 63rd shared location, and you can find the scavenger hunt posts here.
