Maybe Dr T is buck passing.
I don't know but damn it was awkward explaining just how my period worked.
Top off the awkward my mother gave me some important advice about dildos... yep, my mother used that word. Apparently you can never have too many because after a while you should throw out the older ones because they wear out. Thanks for the mental image, Mother! I need serious therapy.
However I think she may have a point. Like everything, dildos and vibrators and other sexual aids have a life expectancy. Sometimes it is shorter due to the stuff it is made from, sometimes it is shorter due to the *cough* use of it and sometimes it will last a long time. But since these items are placed within the human body in particularly sensitive areas that are easily affected by viruses and unsettled easily (thrush can occur with the slightest change in ph levels) we should be sure to keep the foreign objects clean and replace them with new ones when they start to take on a funky colour and/or smell.
I just hope that Mother doesn't over share her wisdom for a little while, I need my blood pressure to recover after that little factoid.
