Volume 10: Make the Weekend Count
Oh my goodness y’all, what a week. I have been apart of some pretty amazing “Shop Local” vendor events and I’d have to say that this past weekend one, has fueled my fire to keep on pushing for more. I have been presenting sex toys for about five years now and have hosted countless parties over the past 13 years, so it’s not new to me. This is the first time I’ve actually gotten nervous just before the big reveal though. Usually I go in an hour early, set everything up and then mingle before I stand behind my table for a few hours. This time, I was running a little late and like a ton of bricks it hit me. I’m setting up a table of Lubricants, Throat Relaxer and Penis Pops at a Wine Tasting Event where I have the potential of meeting two types of people. Those who are wine connoisseurs who can not be bothered by a floozy peasants like myself or those who are wine connoisseurs who are there to let their hair down and happen upon and are intrigued by my table full of sex products.
Then my heart began to race and I thought of my grandparents walking in at any moment as I sat out penis gummies and boob suckers. I could feel the cold chill of sweat roll down my neck and my chest constrict. Don’t get me wrong, my grandparents are the coolest. They are big wine tasters, vineyard travelers and usually really laid back and bubbly in all situations, but I have not been able to make up my mind as to whether or not they’d be embarrassed about me and my business choice. Not that I would stop what I’m doing, but who doesn’t want to impress their grandparents? Yet, we’ve never sat down and talked or joked around about sex, had those innuendo tats or the “now that you’re a mom” conversations, but honestly, I wasn’t sure I was ready to find out. Much to my surprise, a tall bald man that looked just like my grandfather, came in and sat next to my table. He and his wife were up for the weekend and looking to do a little shopping. Well what better place than a venue that had wine and shopping.
I smiled clothes lipped, as I waited for the awkward silence to fill the room and I’ll be darned if he didn’t giggle at the gummy penis’s I had and said, “I can’t eat those, do you have any boobs?” Relief washed over me and the rest of the night I had a blast and finally was able to get into my normal groove. I did have those shy patrons give the “I want to look at your table, but I don’t want to go to hell” look as well as the, “What is she doing here” eye roll, but they stayed away, which opened up more room for the fine ladies that wanted my products! The neatest thing about this to me, is that even though I have reservations about what I do every once in a while, I push through my discomfort and flourish. Putting yourself out there is never easy and you never want to be judged harshly, but when you focus on the positive and have a good time, those who sneer and snicker stay in the shadows.
The fun part about the whole weekend, was all of my catalogs were taken, I sold well over the booth space rent and had a lady even buy one of my test products, because she wanted it NOW because she loved it so much. Then to put the cherry on the cake, I was asked to do a personal show with the WHOLE table (PG and X rated products), for the vineyards. YIKES, big things y’all and I can’t wait to bring them to you all.
So that means, this up coming weekend I have to finish the new catalog preparations, and send it to the printer. Enter all the products into the website and have the testers give me the results for their favorite new toys! YEAH. I’m not gonna lie, I do love it all, but it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I can teach people and make them laugh while being open minded about sex. It is never too late to rekindle the bedroom flame, it is never too late to learn a new trick, and it is never too late to show your partner that you still love them in the most intimate way you can.
As always, I love who I am, I love what I do, and I love the products I get to share with all of you. I am Liona Sun, Full Bloom Parties Blogger and until next time, be cool, stay safe and practice your own KINK and Sexy.
