The Romance Shop

24 07 2012

I will admit it, this single mom is living her non- existent sex life vicariously through the new Shades of Grey series.  I completely understand now why kids are complaining about their moms not having dinner on the table at the usual time or that their lunches once full of fresh fruit and vegetables have been reduced to a granola bar and a juice box.  Hiding behind the toaster in my kitchen is one of the three books in this ever so popular series. I will not lie. My kids have had to ask me questions one, two and three times before they catch my attention because I am intensely reading about Christian and Ana and am completely captivated by what is going to happen next.  I will honestly never be able to look at a neck tie the same way and handcuffs will no longer take my mind to the thought of someone being arrested.

There are apparatuses described in this series that I never knew existed and honestly as I had always thought of myself as a prude never cared to know about. This series has changed all that. I am intrigued by what lies behind the doors of “The Romance Shop”.  I used to think that people would judge you if they knew you had shopped in a “sex” shop but I no longer feel that way. I was nervous approaching the store. I was a little worried that my sons lacrosse coaches wife or one of my sons friends moms might just happen to be downtown and see me  but then I remembered that it was the lacrosse coaches wife that first loaned me the book and that I had passed it on to other moms on the team.

 Once through the doors, Linda the owner of “The Romance Shop” and her staff made me feel so comfortable. You do not feel embarrassed or ashamed to there.  I felt at ease meandering though the store and will admit that at first I was overwhelmed by all of the choices one has to enhance their sex life.  Asking the first question was the hardest (I will only share with my bff’s what that was but I know understand how a certain apparatus will increase a climax in the opposite sex- email me if you want to know what it was!!!) and once that was over I asked questions in rapid succession. I am sure once I left the store that there was many a joke cracked about the rookie that ventured in that morning.

I was absolutely ecstatic to discover the Christian and Ana packages that very closely resemble the box of goodies that Ana presents to Christian as a gift in book #??( You will have to pick up your copy to find out. )  What a great gift for a husband to give to his wife!! I can guarantee that any woman who has ventured on to reading book number two “ Fifty Shades Darker” will not only appreciate that her husband is paying attention to what she is reading but secretly has been hoping that her husband would express a little more “Christian” in the bedroom.

If you decide to venture beyond the contents of the “box”, Linda and the staff at the Romance shop are the bedroom experts who will happily assist you.

 

The Romance Shop is located at 2018 Douglas St  in downtown Victoria,  and 89 Cliffe Ave in Courtenay

very funny…hmm sex shop…maybe all those super heros..and barechested men on date dot com….will have to try a little harder …to impress a girl..they are a whole different breed of Toys’r Us..at least what you get from a sex shop can easily slip into a drawer…and doesn’t take up the whole kitchen ..never demands half the closet..but yes I would be happy with a fraction of the attention Christian gives to Ana…I would go on..but I won’t.
