gettin hot in herrrr

I recently had dinner with my friend L, a person who, every time I hang out with her, has me leave the evening thinking "And why don't we do this more?" Because really, she's awesome. I also usually leave with a blood alcohol content that would get me arrested in 34 states and Puerto Rico, but that's another story.

At this recent dinner she told me about a product that she described variously as "life-changing," "slightly embarassing" and "makes me feel really okay about listening to Nelly." Behold: the OhMiBod.

For those of you too frozen with glee to click on the link: The audio enabled integrated microchip allows the OhMiBod to vibrate to the beat and rhythm of your music while you listen.

You read that right. It's a vibrator. That pulses in time to music.


It's like the baby Jesus knew that I haven't had noteworthy sex in a hideously long time and through divine intervention and the divine Internet sought to provide a welcome distraction.

Why is the music component so important? Listening to your favorite sexy music and actually feeling the corresponding vibes quickly transports you to a place where music, mind and body truly "come" together.

I am so in love with the mere suggestion of this product that I don't mind the sixth-grade level punning.

Measures 5 1/2" long (insertable) and 1 1/8" in diameter.

Okay, now this may be somewhat of a problem. I mean, I'm hardly a size queen, but come on.

And I do have to confess, I find myself somewhat creeped out by the idea of attaching this device to a stereo or computer, as suggested by the website. An iPod is small enough to be unobtrusive, but the suggestion of a more ponderous electronic device conjures mental pictures that, frankly, are not very sexy. In fact, they are pretty effing bizzare, and in some cases inspire the exact opposite feeling that I am sure the OhMiBod is meant to impart.

These minor worries aside, I am still completely turned on by the delicious idea of the OhMiBod and will totally be ordering one. I already have a playlist for pretty much every activity I engage in daily, including Cooking and Cleaning My Pigsty of An Apartment, Running Off My Shame, Dancing Around Like A Total Dork, Morning Commute and "Hanging Out" With Someone New, so why not add in Masturbation?

So, now that we've established 1) that the existence of God is proven by this product and 2) that the complete lack of men in the greater Washington area who know what to do with a woman's body is such that I have spent sixty-nine dollars on this product, what do you suggest for my playlist?

This is a genius idea. I mean, most women listen to music anyway, and why go to the trouble of timing your O to music, when the vibrator does that for you? (Overshare?)

My suggestion: "Lavinia" by The Veils

$69? Tell me that isn't convenient.

My suggestion is based on my belief that the bassline is going to heavily affect the way in which it operates.

Outkast - The Way You Move

That's a home run right there. Figuratively speaking.

A masturbation playlist...sheer brilliance!

Ryane said...

Why....'Everlong' by the Foos...of course. ;-) The song AND the idea seem, um, appropriate to that playlist.

Em....this is fantastic. I just wish I knew about this a month ago (for my birthday). I'm sure my friends could've chipped in for one. Damn it. Great seeing you Sunday!! Let's get together soon, ok? -- Katie

Is it wrong to want "Annie's Song" by John Denver? I don't care. I do.

PhotoBug Chick said...

Nelly, get your eagle on. Oh Baby!

And honestly LL Cool J anything .... DAMN

Great to finally meet you Friday night, EJ; I hope I wasn't too sycophantic. Ah, fuck it, it was fun!
