What's a bunny to do?

This really doesn't fall into the category of a true problem. I was in the drug store today and I happened down the family planning aisle. Not unusual in and of itself. I can often be found perusing the latex for products I'm never going to get to use. Today, however, I saw a brand of female arousal gel that I've been seeing ads for. I desperately want to try it to see if it works. (I tried a tingly lube a few weeks ago and it gave me quite a thrill.)


So here's my non-problem problem. What if it works? What if it's like adding nitroglycerin to the TNT of my baseline arousal? I certainly can't count on being able to work it off with a little bed linen tussle. How do I go to work like that? How do I go to sleep like that? All of the ED medications come with warnings about when too much of a good thing is a bad thing. What are the warnings for women? What if I wake the dragon and it doesn't want to go back to sleep?! Then where will that leave me and my ML?


I both want to know and am afraid to know if I've got a second gear. I'm open to opinions on all sides. (Thanks to adult-acquired ADD, I got sidetracked and didn't end up buying the stuff. So not trying it is still very much an option.)

I had two experiences with that kind of stuff.

The first experience was with one I bought from a sex-toy shop (Adult bookstore? I'm not sure what they're really called). Ok, hubby bought it, while I sat in the car with red cheeks and hid my face, imagining that the pastor would probably drive past just then and see my car in the parking lot. That stuff was awesome; it really helped achieve orgasm quickly and was fun for hubby to put on me. Tingly, but in a way that made me more sensitive and receptive to touch. That was a few years ago. I can't for the life of me remember the brand, but for some reason I'm thinking it was Egyptian-sounding... No clue why, though, and I could be wrong.

I recently bought (ok, we grabbed it in Wal-mart and hid it under a package of toilet paper) another brand, thinking "wow I had so much fun with the other kind, this has got to work for me too!". Took it home, tried it, and within about 30 seconds it felt like someone had lit my genitals on fire. I had to immediately stop sexual activity and run a bath to wash it off.

If you decide to try some, test a TINY amount out on yourself first. Feeling like someone's held a match to your va-jay-jay isn't something you'll want to experience, I assure you.

Good luck!

If your SO is cooperative then wittle bunny can go to town. If not then bunny may need the help of a wabbit,

Does Bunny have a mechanical aid?

You know... I don't think his LL is sudden, my HL is very sudden. I'm 36 and he is 42.

I bought mine because of killer cramps (the only thing that works) and it has come in handy when my desire is in the unreasonable category, as in twice on Friday, once on Saturday, and wanting him again soooo bad Sunday-- now that is Not Reasonable, at least in the 40+ crowd.


This whole thread is making me laugh, but this comment really got to me. It reminded me of a wedding anniversary years ago when DLLW gave me a gift of never again saying no to a reasonable request for sex. After a week, she had said "yes" about twice and "no" about 8 times. I asked what happened to the gift. She said, "All those other times you asked were unreasonable." I still laugh about the incredible differences in viewpoint between LL and HL.

I had a rabbit. I broke it. It now points at an alarming 90 degree angle. I'm sure I could use it to square off some corners but otherwise it's finished as mother's little helper.

Okay, at the risk of getting dinged for product endorsement (although it's currently splashed -- not literally thank goodness -- all over ivillage), a few weeks ago I bought the KY Yours + Mine. I tried Mine. I'll spare you the gory details. Suffice to say I'm almost out of Mine. I also tried Yours (because I'm a pioneering sort). Did absolutely nothing for me. I could have been plying myself with flea drops for the dog for all the effect it had on me. So I've got a near empty tube of Mine and practically a whole tube of Yours. I haven't seen them as singles so I'm hoping I can find an equivalent in something else. It's the KY Intense that I've been petting in the prophylactic aisle. Actually, if I can get the proper physical back-up, I may work my way through everything in that aisle. I'll report my findings back here faithfully. Maybe I could get an endorsement deal

The bunny killed the rabbit...
Guess the bunny isn't harmless after all.

Okay. Mostly Harmless. (It thrills me to conjure a little Douglas Adams here. Thanks for the opening.)
