Poetry. Kind of mysterious, am I right!? I mean I *get* poems but at the same time…I’m kind of secretly like like, wait, do I? The thing about poetry is that you can’t read it without thinking about the fact that you’re reading a poem the whole time. Like rare jazz music, just as you get into it, a little voice can emerge within that reminds you just how supremely intellectual and interesting you are. It’s like suddenly seeing yourself from a bird’s-eye-view smoking a cigarette with a beret and sunglasses on. While obviously very cool, it’s incredibly distracting.
As a writer, there’s nothing that excites me like a lover that has a way with words. Sweet notes, sweet talk and sweet nothings whispered into my ear during sex are all amazing ways to evoke romance and sensuality. To speak astrologically (literally why not?) my Venus, the planet of love, is in Gemini, the most verbose sign in the zodiac. So, to me, a good chat is an incredible aphrodisiac. If we’re on a date and your conversation can keep me interested and make me laugh, there is a good chance I’m picking up what you’re putting down, babe.
When I heard there was a new vibrator on the market called ‘The Poet,’ my interest was obviously piqued. Poems, like clitoral stimulators, are some of my favorite things in the world. Nearly always rhythmical, they both play with pacing and repetition in a way that can evoke a deep sense of pleasure. What I love about air-pulse toys that they’re designed with the uniqueness of the clit in mind, emitting pulses of air to stimulate the nerves in and around it. The indirect clitoral stimulation provided by the air pulsing is a really deep sensation that I haven’t experienced with standard vibrators. Because no two clitorises are sized the same, the mouth of the toy needs to be a good fit. Lots of water-based lube really helps, too.
