This sex toy review was published on OurChart.com around November 5th 2008, before the website dumped their content. I have reposted it here out of respect for the companies which donated their product, in this case: Babeland.com – JL
When does a game become a sex toy? When it’s the perfect instigator.
It’s not often I get to write a sex toy review about a product that isn’t explicitly a ‘sex toy’. So this one is going to be a little bit different. Last year after San Francisco’s Dyke March, I was invited to a private Afterparty. It was at a friend’s house, who had summoned a dangerously hot collective of beautiful queer women at her home. Did I mention that there was a stripper pole in her living room? Like I said, this isn’t an ordinary post.
We sipped on cocktails, casting flirtatious glances at the shinny pole, and at each other. I’d recognized many of these hotties from around the city — the Lexington Club, Pink & White Productions, and sunny BBQs at Dolores Park. The host announced it was time to play a game.
When’s the last time you played spin the bottle? I think mine must have been at some point in junior high. I blushed at the idea –- I didn’t need a bottle to give me an excuse to make-out with any of these fine friends, however the idea behind the game seemed intriguing. The person the bottle points to chooses truth, or dare. The spinner can ask their own questions or select them from a hat. We were given slips of paper to make anonymous questions and dares, ranging from ‘What was the bravest thing you’ve ever done?’ to ‘Do a strip routine on the pole to the song of your choice’. Our folded contributions were collected into a sexy black leather cowboy hat.
Fast-forward past the details (did you expect me to kiss and tell?) and I’ll tell you that the night was a BIG hit. We all vowed to play the game again, and I couldn’t believe how much fun I’d had playing what I had always tossed aside as an awkward game from childhood past.
You wouldn’t believe my surprise when I found SPIN ME, a game from sexy vibrator company JimmyJane. I had to see it for myself, and bet your ass I’m going to give it to our game night host as a gift – and nudge her to get another game night on the calendar. ; )
SPIN ME is a beautiful white corked ceramic bottle that calls you to play. Inside are 12 strips of paper, each with a question or dare. Most of them are sensual – for example “Have your partner choose two parts of their body, but don’t tell them what comes next… Now, connect the dots with one long, slow lick. Make your way back to the starting point with kisses.” Depending on who the bottle points to, this could be VERY hot. If the 12 instructions are a little too ‘sex in the city’ for your tastes, make your own! The opposite sides are blank and coming up with dares or questions is half the fun.
