Sex Toys & Bendy People!!!

Odd title, but you have been warned.

Last night, I went to my not-so-local adult store to purchase a new vibrator. As I've recently moved, and my husband packed all of our bedroom toys, I have no idea where mine is, and it's in need of replacing anyway.

When I got to the till with my purchases, the small-talk began with the wonderfully hilarious man behind the counter. We talked for a good five minutes, and eventually (I can't remember why) I told him "Last night I dislocated my hip, my knee, my ankle, my shoulder, and my jaw."

He looks at me kinda funny, then "You were playing a sport of some kind, right? Please tell me that wasn't from sex."

"That was from sex" I told him, with a blush in my cheeks.

He looks at me funnier still, tells me my total, and turns around to rummage in a cabinet as the debit machine is doing its thing.

He hands me a card that says '$10.00 off your next purchase', and tells me, "It only takes 3 dislocations to get a discount out of me," awkward pause... "play safe."

I left the store in near hysterics, with a grin on my face.

If any of you have similar-type stories, and aren't shy to admit it, it may be a great way to get a discount from an adult store, even though you know they'll be picturing the kinds of positions necessary for dislocations to take place.

Have a nice day, and a safe night!

I laughed out loud on reading this. Thank you the laughter.

(not laughing obviously at the dislocations)

You have posted a timely reminder that in living with ehlers danlos its vital to retain ones sense of humour.

I find that if you lose your sense of humour, you really don't have much left. It's therapeutic to laugh at yourself, and to share stories, so that others may laugh WITH you.

Oh, sex injuries.
It takes a lot of creativity to get around it. I still haven't figured it out. Thanks for the laugh :)
