Batteries or Fingers?
"Main chain stores now add a toy aisle for adults" was the article. Yeah. When at the grocery stores and you find vibrators next to the cucumbers you had gone to buy, this shouldn't come to you as a shock. They are literally everywhere!
In an article on the Huffington Post, Brandi Megan Granett doesn't understand the whole craze and "the need for tools and batteries and life-like stimulation" and goes on to ask: "Why can't women just touch themselves?"
According to her, women’s sexuality is still subdued just like in the 19th century when our fore-mothers needed medical permission in the name of "Hysteria" to use vibrators. Today, "We need the approval of a credit card swipe and a delicately labeled box with instructions to get in touch with one of our deepest, most natural urges… this is just another case where women's sexuality is subjugated to the marketplace instead of celebrated and explored", she says.
In her book My Secret Garden on women’s sexual fantasies, Nancy Friday says women are "as hidden as our clitorises" with the "I thought I was the only one" mentality. Yes we touch ourselves but for some reason, we like it to stay hidden. For some reason, we feel its still taboo – good girls don’t!
The thing is "Our kinky fantasies won’t get us banished to the attic anymore" says Ruth Franklin. Women should feel free to do as they please sexually. Brandi looks forward to the day when women will be teased about masturbation just as men are, a day where people will tell jokes about "Rosie Fingers" just as they do about "Rosie Palm, a man’s best friend." This woman doesn’t want women to use batteries. She wants women to know its okay to use their fingers. She wants women to just touch themselves.

"The Coaching Service served as an incredible perk and has really enhanced my online dating experience"
Submitted by: Karen, USA, 34
My Dating Coach really took the time to go through my profile thoroughly. First she viewed my pictures and gave me great feedback.
She read through the written portion of my profile, line by line, and gave direct feedback on how to add my personality to it.
My amazing consultant, even asked how my contacts where going and offered a few suggestions to increase my interactions with new men.
I took her advice and made the suggested adjustments.
I have received more contact from men, more views, and have started communicating with more people which was the whole point of joining the site in the first place.
The Coaching Service served as an incredible perk and has really enhanced my online dating experience. Thanks!
