Downside(?) to being the office Christian

(This makes more sense if you've read odd happenstance of the day.)

Late yesterday afternoon, two cubicles away, there's a lot of giggling going on. Several of the other girls in the office are all grouped together. CC wanders by casually.

"I like the cordless kind," one female voice says.

"Yeah. I hear Target is going to start carrying 'the Rabbit."

For a moment, CC is a bit offended that she has been left out of what is apparently a discussion of vibrators. Then she remembers. She's the office Christian.

Congenitally unable to leave well enough alone, she pokes her head in.

"Are you guys talking about vibrators?" She asks, making her voice willfully a little giggely.

"Yes," one girl says, indicating her friend "She and I are very open about things like that." There's general agreement that everyone is open.

CC generally thinks low things about people who feel the need to explain how open they are.

Anway, I left them to their vibrator discussion and went back to work, wondering what was sadder, that the office Christian is assumed to not know about vibrators, or that judging from the conversation, none of the other girls had tried the Hitachi magic wand.

who one time was watching "Sex and the City" with a friend. Samantha was saying "And the best vibrator is..."

and CC said "the Hitachi Magic Wand" just before Samantha echoed "the Hitachi magic wand."

CC's friend looked on her with apparent new respect. Can't beat that for street cred.

Very funny.

If your UU congregation were to offer Our Whole Lives for Adults along with the UU Sexuality and Our Faith supplement, perhaps you could invite your co-workers?

The topics covered include BGLT issues, masturbation, lovemaking, relationships (including issues surrounding non-monogamy in long-term relationships), sexual health (including issues surrounding intentional infliction of pain and sexual health), pornography and erotica, and (last but not least) spirituality.

I think that people don't have an accurate picture of the world if they think that all religion is sexuality-negative. This isn't true for the UUA and the UCC.

BWA HA HA HA!But please, CC, for me... don't ever try to make yourself sound giggly.

I love the Hitachi Magic Wand. The g-spot attachment gives me screaming orgasms. It's sooo good.

My wife is on several antidepressants, and they tend to kill sexual response. A g-spot vibrator has been a literal God-send for us.

I wish I had the courage to tell our friends about these vibrators. I feel guilty that I can't.

And yeah, I'm even posting this anonymously. Sigh.
