As mentioned in my Theme Reveal, my character Isola is taking over! She’s going to share with you some of her crazy stories, mostly centered around working in a Sex Toy Shop. Take it away, Isola!
Edibles are one of the most fun things to pick up in a toy store. The most popular is edible underwear. Honestly, I just think they are so gross. If I am going to put underwear on my body, it’s going to be all yucky by the time you go to eat it. I guess if the length of time is short, then it wouldn’t be so bad, but at that point, why bother? I would rather just be naked. (Totally tell me if you have tried edible underwear and you like it. I’m dying to hear real stories.)
But there are lots of awesome edibles that are fun novelty items. I really like the gummy penises. They are great for bachelorette parties, sure, but I highly recommend mixing them in with a bunch of regular gummies to see if anyone notices. It’s hilarious to see people actually look at the gummies and get suddenly surprised at what they find. Just make sure you don’t leave them where kids can find them. That can cause awkward questions.
My favorite memory of this is when I went to a gaming convention. It was all tabletop games, and very family friendly, but apparently I have a reputation. I was browsing the options at one of the vendors, and all of a sudden the owner of the stand is motioning me over. I go over smiling, as I had known him at least in passing for quite some time.
“How are you?” I asked.
“Very well, and you?”
“I’m fine. What’s up?”
“I have something to show you.” He pulled out a box and opened it, holding the lid so it would block the view of anyone passing by. At first, I was afraid he was going to show me something illegal, but no, they were penis gummies. I just laughed.
“You know I sell these at my store,” I said.
He shrugged. “I thought you might, but feel free to spread the word if you know anyone else might be interested. All they have to do is ask.”
I walked away a few minutes later with a bag full of regular and penis gummies, as well as some other novelty gaming items. I didn’t do the math, but I was pretty sure he hadn’t charged me full price for the lot.
