A Sex Toy Giveaway..For My Wedding?? Why Not!

When Paul and I started talking about our wedding, we knew it was going to be utterly different from the norm. No tux (he’s wearing a kilt), no big white, poofy satin confection of a gown (I look far better in purple than in white), no three-tiered white cake, no caterer.

In short, we are having none of the usual trappings of the Wedding Industrial Complex as we know it. We wanted this to be about friendship, community, and most of all, FUN.

In all of this I found myself questioning everything that is normally done at weddings, just because ‘everyone does it’. At most weddings, the bride tosses her bouquet to the single women there who have often been pushed out by well-meaning relatives in hopes she will catch the bouquet, signaling that she will be the next one to walk down the isle.

I can’t think of anything more fun than putting single people on the spot at an event that already makes them overly-conscious of being unmarried, and making sure it is pointed out publicly how single they are.

This was one of those traditions that I loathed in concept, but is so ingrained in our culture that I couldn’t imagine not doing it. Then it dawned on me- why not just take the damned tradition and turn it on it’s ear? It’s not like we are doing anything else by the book!

My first thought was that this is a celebration, and I want everyone included, married or single. So I *could* toss the bouquet and have everyone down there, but who’s going to want it?

And if not the bouquet, what could I throw that everyone *would* want? What could I include that every woman there, married or single would find appealing.

To me, sex toys seemed the obvious answer. Who doesn’t love an orgasm?

I shot off an email to Eden Fantasys who got back that they loved the idea, and would not only provide the bouquet alternative for my lucky wedding guest, but would provide one for a blog give-away as well!

So my friends, online and off, I am looking to spread a little happiness for my big day.

Happiness in this case will come in the form of a discretely wrapped(Star Wars wrapping paper FTW!) Triple Indulgence Rabbit Vibrator. From Eden Fantasys website-

The Triple Indulgence is a waterproof delight. With separate controls for vibration and rotation, you can customize your experience to orgasm, whether in or out of the water.
Want to give it a spin for yourself? Locals will have their chance to catch it at the wedding, but our online friends will be able to win one without giving up a Saturday afternoon. Just leave a comment below with your advice for a long and happy marriage, and my favorite words of wisdom will be chosen Tuesday, June 22nd. Tweeting out the post gets you an extra chance!
Looking forward to the responses, and sharing a little joy as my own happy day approaches!

I Need Some Ideas!

I probably should have posted about this days ago, but it’s one of those times where I keep thinking I’m going to wake up, and if I told anyone all the good stuff would go away, so I’ve just kept mum.

Our humor site, Daily Shite, has started to take off. I don’t want to get into exact numbers, but let’s just say our crazy dream for getting over 100k hits in a month has already been far passed. For the month of February. Yes, today is only the 5th.

See why I’ve been afraid of jinxing things?

Anyhow, we are starting to look into trying to promote the site a bit more, and we’ve decided running a sponsored contest would fit the bill. Only, we aren’t really sure how to go about it.

In the past, PR people have approached me about doing it on my own blog, but Daily Shite is still pretty new, so we aren’t at that point yet. I don’t mind approaching companies for potential sponsorship, but the question is who?

Assuming it was something easy, like join our Facebook page, what could a site offer that would tempt you to enter to win? What would you like to see offered as a prize?

I know some of you have done a lot of these on your own sites, so any advice would be much appreciated!

(And have I mentioned you really should join our Facebook page?)
