I get a lot of, um, interesting things in my inbox. Like you wouldn’t believe. I try to stay on top of it all (it is a lot, and I’ve learned that sometimes it’s hard to quickly tell the wheat from the chaff) but mostly I fail.
Anyway, one of the more random things that showed up this week was a link to this post, The 7 Greatest Homemade Sex Toys For Men (no, I’m not making this up, people just email me this stuff).
So speaking of homemade sex toys, did I ever mention that years ago I dated a guy who was very into homemade sex toys? I’m not talking about using household objects as sex toys. I mean making/crafting toys from scratch. Out of raw materials – leather, feathers, rubber…
I have always had, and still have, a strict trash and burn policy when it comes to break-ups. When a relationship ends I get rid of all reminders of the ex in question (except for jewelry, I keep that). When I broke up with Mr. Homemade Sex Toys, I had to make a choice – what should I do about the toys he’d left at my place (as they were very much made for playing together). I gave him the option of picking them up (I tend to give guys a 48 hour window) and then tossed them in the trash. Note: I have been known to mail things back to men, without a final goodbye note. Random things on random occasions.
Sometimes I wish I hadn’t. A couple of them were really nice toys. But they were his. And it just would have been icky to keep them.
So, what about you? What do you do after a break-up?
