Hey, guess what? Today is mine and The Boy’s fourth anniversary! From our first date in Alaska, to our 5k wedding in Texas, to the birth of our daughter, to this newest baby – we’ve come a long way. All in all, we’ve been together for 10 years. We’ve never been shy about how much we like each other and how much we enjoy each other physically. We’ve always been very open and able to communicate what we do and don’t like between the sheets and we’ve never been shy about trying out new things. I believe that a couple’s ability to communicate openly about sex is extremely important and there’s no shame in wanting to spice things up. From the beginning of our relationship, we’ve experimented with fun toys and had a great time. But you know what? Those toys were always so… utilitarian and ugly looking that they made me feel a little unsexy when we’d play with them. So, imagine my excitement, when I discovered a resource for chic and modern looking marital aids that were also SO, SO fantastic (OMG. SO FANTASTIC!)! The products from LELO are well-designed, sleek-looking, and just WORK. So, check out my ideas on how to spice up your relationship with a few fun options from LELO:

As many of my regular readers know, my husband (The Boy) has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (or PTSD). He’s had it for several decades now. His PTSD is from his time in the military and the trauma surrounding a devastating training accident plus many stressful/dangerous deployments. Like many in the military, he struggled for many, many years without being diagnosed.
You’ve been married exactly 10 seconds when you are suddenly bum rushed by your second cousin who demands to know, “When are you two going to have a baby?”. Ugh. The shit people think is okay to say to newlyweds (or ANYONE for that matter)…
