Question of the Day: What was your first experience with a sex toy?

Leading up to my keynote panel at Catalyst Con East – where I will be talking about sparking conversations in sexuality – I’m going to try to start some sex conversations here on the blog and on Twitter. To learn more about this project, check out the original post.

This is Day 2. Check out the rest of the days here on the blog or use the hashtag #SexQOTD on Twitter.

Question for day 2: What was your first experience with a sex toy?

This is actually kind of embarrassing for me to answer. *blushes* My cousins and I found something that vibrated as a kid. I have no idea how I decided to put it against me but I did, and I loved it. I’m pretty sure I even orgasmed, right there in front of my cousins. I was about 6 and still wonder to this day whose vibrator we found.

To quote the Indigo Girls, “And that was the beginning, of the rest of my life. You have to laugh at yourself, or else you’d cry your eyes out if you didn’t.”

Let’s talk! Leave your answer to this QOTD here or tweet it to me @QueerieBradshaw.
