Special alone time

So you know how the pregnancy books say you’ll get a spike in your sex drive in the second trimester? Didn’t happen for me. (Probably because the morning sickness didn’t abate either. Stupid pregnancy books.) And I just got way touched-out int he first year of The Child’s life.

But lately, I’ve been feeling sorta… well, sometimes… sorta… a little…. horny. It’s not the towering pile of hormones that I surfed B.B. (Before Baby) but sex occassionaly enters my brain in something other than an “I miss that” light.

And occassionally, rarely, on some days, The Child is napping, the houseowrk is done (or my apathy is high enough that I don’t care), the star align, and I feel like a little special alone time.

Or, to put it more bluntly, like masturbating.

The problem becomes that The Child has an uncanny — nigh supernatural — knack for waking up at the worst possible moment. Not during, but right before the big finish. It’s knocked down my jilling off (to paraphrase Susie Bright), which was down to a ridiculously low frequency anyway. Because nursing her while in that heightened state is just weird.

This came up in casual conversation with The Best Friend and she suggested a vibrator. I’ve never used a vibrator before — not that I’m against them, in theory, but just that I’ve always gone au natural. I’ve bought a dozen for friends who needed them, and I always prided myself on not being one of those people. It’s sad, but I had a little sexual hubris.

I’m still not sure that I’m willing to go there, but I’m having a time looking at the varieties of vibrators. There are the iVibe and the Oh My Pod, which vibrate in tune to your iPod. (I’m thinking lots of Wagner on women’s playlists) and the Sex and the City rabbits and the minis and the dolphins and the rock-chick (haven’t figured out how that one works yet). It’s a mind-boggling array.

Ladies, do you have any suggestions?

    Bullet vibe. Buy one with multiple speeds/settings. Small, quiet,effective and can be used easily during partnered acts. 🙂
