To wonder why this has come through the post for DH..?
namechangedaily · 07/12/2021 14:43
Saw an opened perfumed shaped parcel on the side and curiosity got the better of me so thought I'd sneak and see if it was the Chanel perfume I'd be hinting about. Found this..
Would you assume it's a secret Santa?
Or I've just had a baby and he clearly isn't getting enough...
Ellen888 · 07/12/2021 16:43
You think that's bad?
Deep-water fishermen away from home on long trips used to nail a cod's head to the mast......
DinoDinner · 07/12/2021 16:43
I know! All these so cool wives/partners 🙄

creepy as fuck sex "toys"
How is a vibrator okay (assuming you think it is? sorry if not, that's a different conversation entirely) but the anatomical opposite for the opposite sex to use isn't?
I think now you have opened it OP, you need to pick the right time to apologise for opening his post and seeing it, and have a conversation with him saying of course that's fine and you hope he enjoys using it, but please do feel okay to talk to you about our romantic life/sex life if you would like to. After all, maybe he doesn't want to 'pester' you for sex when you've recently had the baby and has bought this as a stop gap? That would make him one of the good ones. Or you could just put a post-it on it saying "sorry, opened your post, say no more, enjoy!" or something like that. Depends on how your relationship functions.

I'd set up the table for two,wine and candles and then when he asks why you won't sit with him, say his date is already seated ( leave the box on the chair ) even a faux pissy would like to be wined and dined I'm sure!
oakleaffy · 07/12/2021 16:42
Just ask him that you found a funny torch that hasn't got a bulb, and why is it called ''Ella?''
Poisinedmummy · 07/12/2021 16:39
Ask him… At least his shagging a toy and not someone else I suppose 😂
Rtmhwales · 07/12/2021 16:38
Did you open post that was addressed solely to him? That's illegal where I live. I'd be livid if DP opened my post, especially if the cause was to snoop for a gift.
DirtyDancing · 07/12/2021 16:37
Sorry but can you imagining opening that at the work Xmas do?! Fuck me!
Anyway, it's clearly his. Best to have a chat with him about it
LampLighter414 · 07/12/2021 16:35
At least he is sorting himself out rather than being a sex pest. Plenty of threads moaning about those sorts on here.
Let him off
me4real · 07/12/2021 16:33
In theory there's nothing wrong with him having a toy.
But that particular one is a bit gross.
I don't think I would say anything though OP, if you can resist. Whatever floats his boat.
shouldistop · 07/12/2021 16:32
@CounsellorTroi but back in the packaging. Op knew she was snooping. I'd be really annoyed if dh was looking through parcels for his Christmas present.
Op I don't see the problem with him masturbating, especially if it's instead of pressuring you for sex when you've just had a baby
Franklyfrost · 07/12/2021 16:32
I’d be tempted to leave something inside it. A peeled boiled egg if you want to give him nightmares. Or a sprig of holly to make it festive. Seriously though, that is low grade harmless snooping on your part and a fairly harmless hobby on your husbands.
WhenSepEnds · 07/12/2021 16:32
@namechangedaily it's not secret Santa sent to his home address. Just tell him you had other parcels delivered and opened his parcel by mistake?
gannett · 07/12/2021 16:29
You JUST had a baby and seeing this makes you feel pressured to meet the needs of your man-baby at a time when you are so tired and in recovery mode (and new mum mode!).
It'd be like if your DH was about to go through chemo, rads, and surgery and your first thought is, "I'm gonna need a big, sparkly purple, gyrating plastic cock to see me through! That's my priority!"
I don't know... I'm getting old. What happened to men just slamming their dicks between two dried logs?
Isn't the point is that he's NOT pressuring her, because he's off sorting himself out with this thing? Which is surely what one would want?
blameless · 07/12/2021 16:28
You sound like the person who got escorted from Ann Summers - apparently you should use them only AFTER you've bought them.
Lalliella · 07/12/2021 16:27
You shouldn’t have opened his post.
Nothing wrong with him having this is there? Better than an OW!
I like your worktop btw.
CounsellorTroi · 07/12/2021 16:26
No she didn’t it was already opened.
westofnormal · 07/12/2021 16:24
Seems pretty obvious to me. You obviously have issues since you illegally opened his mail and are also not going to talk to him about it, but are instead asking strangers to mind read.
shouldistop · 07/12/2021 16:24
Did you seriously open a parcel addressed to your husband to see if he'd bought you perfume for Christmas?
EmeraldShamrock · 07/12/2021 16:22
I'd be very annoyed if my partner opened any package with my name on it.
I don't see any issues with anyone using a sex toy.
PinotPony · 07/12/2021 16:22
The moral outrage from some posters on here is utterly bizarre. There's absolutely nothing wrong with a man buying himself a flesh light.
It is no different than a woman buying a vibrator. Plenty of vibrators are designed to look like real cocks. Would you be "disgusted" at a woman cleaning her dildo after she'd cum over it..?
He's not pressuring OP for sex or being a sex pest. If she doesn't want to have sex (quite understandable if she's just had a baby), that doesn't mean the poor man can't have a solo wank. It's not disrespectful to her. Everyone knows that MASTURBATING IS GOOD FOR YOU! 😁
In answer to your question OP... just ask him!
MilduraS · 07/12/2021 16:21
I bought something like that for my DH. If it helps, he said it was really loud and off putting so it hasn't seen the light of day since.
FestiveFruitloop · 07/12/2021 16:19
Says 'low stock' on Lovehoney's site. And there I was thinking the Velvetiser was this year's gift of choice...
Seriously though OP, I can imagine what a shock this would have been. Do you think you'll talk to him about it?
Moonmelodies · 07/12/2021 16:18
Perhaps he wants it to practice cunnilingus, for when you're ready.
Alonelonelyloner · 07/12/2021 16:09
I just take mine into the shower to clean them when I wash myself - usually post-sex as we use them together.
My DP bought me an enormous dildo once that was quite eye watering, but pretty awesome when I had stopped looking at it and gave it a try.
He is clearly quite open about it. I wouldn't take it as a criticism of my sexual abilities or availability!
