So, let's get real up in here for a hot minute ladies. I'm sure that as women in committed relationships, we have all been in that moment when everything is working together to give you some alone 'adult' time with your man, #TheMoodStrikes ...only to have things come to a screeching halt...er, hopefully not literally. ifyouknowwhatimsayin What's a girl to do? Well, I'll tell you what I've done and maybe it will help give you the freedom to be spontaneous too.
Without getting all x-rated up in this spot...
In my younger years, I never needed a product like this. I was a well oiled machine...so to speak..but as the years have gone on and I've had babies, the old girl just ain't what she used to be, ya know what I'm sayin'?!
It weighs on a relationship because you feel bad that your body is not responding how it's supposed to and your man feels bad because he thinks he's not doing it for you anymore. It sucks getting old, but it happens to the best of us.
Enter K-Y Liquibeads®. Now, don't go getting all squeamish on me. I'm not gonna go into too much detail, but just suffice it to say, when its time, if you've used the K-Y Liquibeads® you don't have to worry about getting out more um....I know people hate this word, but it is what it is, lube when you are right in the heat of the moment. There, I said it. Everyone still with me?! lol
I, for one, would rather just know that I don't have to worry about whether my body will cooperate when we do find the time for some adult playtime. Let's face it, when there are kids around you sometimes gotta be creative with your time if you want to connect with your man so I have found these liquibeads to really help me be ready whenever the mood strikes..and these are so much less messy, so that's a total bonus in my book.
I know for me, my husband and I don't get a lot of date nights. Or time away from the kids to go do adult stuff. We are just one of those kinds of families that when we have time away from work or other obligations, we'd rather spend it all together with the whole family than just the 2 of us leaving our kids with a babysitter...to each their own, I ain't judgin' I'm just sayin' how we do. So, we don't get a lot of time to go visit stores of the adult variety, if you catch my drift, to peruse the many, many different kinds of ...personal lubricant. (is saying it that way really any better than just saying lube and getting it out of the way?!) I like that I can just go to Target and do my regular shopping and pick up some K-Y Liquibeads® while I'm at it. Convenient is the name of this game, ladies!
It can be really hard fitting it all in, but with some careful planning ahead of time, you can still be spontaneous later. A typical date night at home for us looks something like this:
Feed and bathe the kids. Take care of any need they might have so that once they are in bed, they are there to stay! Once they are down, we like to order takeout to have with a nice glass of wine, or in hubby's case a great beer. We usually get a movie *(if I've done my job and planned ahead of time we will have a great movie from our queue). Sometimes, we like to sit out on the back patio and have a cigar if the weather is nice...which, this is Phoenix so it generally is, but you know...we do get a cold snap every now and then ;)
Now it's time to set the scene. I like to make sure that I've had time to prepare and pamper myself so that should the mood strike, I am not feeling like a tired, worn out, yoga pant, stained shirt wearin' mama. I want to take time to look good for myself and my man. Part of my routine now has become to pop in a liquibead so that later, I'm all set to go. In my Date Night Essentials are a nighty, a favorite perfume, favorite lotion, favorite lipstick and of course, K-Y Liquibeads®. If I've got this, I'm prepared for whatever the time alone with my man brings.
Oh, and just cuz it's the season for giving, here's a $1.00 off coupon so you can run out and get you some! ;)
Now, how does it work you are probably thinking...right?! I know you are just too embarrassed to ask, so here, let me demonstrate.
Get your minds out of the gutter!! I'm not gonna actually show you all the steps! Sheesh! ;)
This is what you get, in the package there are 6 applicators that are packaged together in a tightly sealed plastic wrap. You also get 6 individual beads. (there are also instructions that come in the box if you need them).
I don't have photos to show you the rest of the process, cuz I ain't about making this an x-rated blog! haha So I'm sure you all can figure out what comes next...You insert the applicator, push the button and voila. Give it about 20-30 minutes to work its magic and then you are good to go.
*Tip: If you think there's a chance you might be intimate later on at some point that day and you don't want to even chance you might uh...dry up, pop one of these bad boys in while you are getting ready for the day or if you know you have a date with your man, take an extra minute to freshen up and while you are at it, place a liquibead so that later you'll be all ready. That's what I do...I'm just sayin'...without tryin' to say too much ;) lol
So, the verdict is: Trixie (that's my alter ego) gives this product 2 thumbs up
*If you are pregnant or nursing you should consult your doctor before using this product.
Anyway, now we will get back to our regularly scheduled programming of makeup and beauty type posts...I just gotta get really real up in here sometimes, ya know?!
