@Effie best of all lipsmackers!
@Keri Yes! Circa 1992, my personal favorite sock-style was pink over teal on one foot, teal over pink on the other, scrunch-roll to see opposite colors!! This color scheme may or may not have matched my glasses, and, uhm, the rubber bands on my braces.
@elizabeast ditto! Except that part of my brain was actually my mother banning the wearing of lone tank-tops because BRA STRAPS, SHOULDERS, doesn't that get you pregnant? But I should have just stuck with the t-shirt, then. (Only, if I left the house wearing both, then I could change in the bathroom.)
@femme cassidy Oh, I sort of assumed it went without saying that she would *invite* us all!
@kadabra despairpin! exacts.
Assignment for someone: throw yourself a coming-out party with BLFTs cut in small triangles. Maybe poked together with toothpicks that are actually tiny rainbow flags? (C'mon, rainbows just this once!) Plus good bourbon on the rocks, or whatever your local version of dyke-bait is.
@annepersand this! every possible version of "well right now you're [lukewarm faint praise], but if you lost [varying quantity of pounds / dress sizes] you'd be [aspirational adjective]." Then, silently with her eyes, "you *do* want to be [aspirational adjective], don't you??"
@Porporina keeping lube lubier makes sense! -- I guess that would be how one avoids going through liquid silk by the gallon? (I may start a lobby for it to be sold in bulk at the co-op.) And nails! A thing I've never 100% understood, but I def support the protection of everyone's tender parts from their pokiness. So I can totally get behind gloves on those principles, and even the safety principle too.
I guess maybe I am just a little like that dude from high school who persistently objected to condoms on the grounds that they spoiled the spontaneity of the moment. But less awful, I hope?
@lasuperchouette ouf, I just realized that was maybe a horribly awkward commentrix debut! I've just been waiting for my chance to stop lurking and share, and non-usage of dental dams is a topic on which I am a total expert.
One more member of the neverever have had protected ladysex team, and probs neverever will. Condoms on strap-ons excepted. On the rare occasion that anyone has expressed squeamishness about safe oral, or I have felt any squeamishness myself, we just do something else. Gloves? seriously? I guess for anal it makes sense, but so do condom-covered toys, which somehow don't have quite the squick factor of gloves.
I do, however, have some dental dams in a drawer/box somewhere, given to me by a very nice boy in a glitter thong at a pride parade circa 2007 who was about to hand over a fistful of condoms and then stopped, hesitated, and said, "I guess you'd rather have one of *these* things?" And so there they sit, with the mardi gras beads and rainbow flags.
