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...

Give it to a charity shop!

Why?
It’s not hers to do that with.

You never do anything in private that wouldn't look good during tea with the vicar?

There are layers though, aren’t there? It’s bit like a woman owning a vibrator with testicles, hair and veins on it

Loads of dildos are penis-shaped, with veins and balls.

Would make somewhere handy to keep a vibrator.

If people read the first line the OP says the parcel was opened already. If your DH is leaving it lying around then maybe it's been left there as a particularly unsubtle hint?
My thought too...

Puritanical or not…. If that gets opened at work, there is a real possibility of a complaint. Many people / women would not appreciate a rubber vulva appearing in the office.

Especially once Marvin in logistics has done an obscene ventriloquist act with it. Or Ryan from finance has tested it with a cocktail sausage.

And people ALWAYS work out who gave what in a secret Santa.

Exactly. And you can even get ones that thrust.

With regards to you saying it's unprofessional because he's a manager, at my work the management staff have a secret Santa amongst ourselves so it could be for a same level colleague.

Exactly, aren't all vibrators sort of penis shaped? It wouldn't work if they were octagonal would it?

when do the casts come off your arms? How are you managing to pick up the baby? When’s the deadline for your story and how are you going to type it?

I don’t get this, someone please explain!

OP said she hopes the present get moves so DS doesn't see it wrapped in spider man paper and think it's for him. The other poster is asking what's wrong with her arms that stops her from moving it.

It’s a pretty poorly thought out choice. Assuming he doesn’t work in a sex shop or something.

The recipient may well find it hilarious. But if it’s opened in an office with other staff there is a fairly high chance at least one person might be really uncomfortable with it.
Is the entire office made up of men with the exact same sense of humour for these things? Very unlikely.
Especially if some idiot decides to demonstrate it with an office pen or indeed cocktail sausage.
Yes it’s just a sex you, and yes anyone is free to use one, but absolutely not appropriate in an office environment.
I think I’d find it slightly uncomfortable to be honest and I’m not a prude by any means. And I’d feel pretty disgusted for the younger girls in our office seeing it, as I suppose I feel protective of them and would be angry if they were made to feel uncomfortable just for a joke.
I’d certainly be thinking what prize twat bought that!
And let’s hope the recipient does find it funny. If it’s been bought to cause them embarrassment…. And it was from a manager….. they’d have a pretty good case.

@HandScreen

I mean, people have a wank, no? Don't you? Do you really not have a vibrator?

MN becomes more puritanical everyday. You should really try a vibrator, might make you less uptight.

Nice wee bit of sexism here, good one.

Only on Mumsnet can your partner buy creepy as fuck sex "toys" and the OP is in the wrong. You lot are something else.

I agree! Unbelievable.

I suppose different people have different experiences/tolerances when it comes to sex. I would have thought a sleeve thing quite low on the scale of things. I have a nice collection of vibrators, none realistically modelled on a penis, and I really don’t see the difference. How is it eww scummy for a man to have a sex toy but ok for a woman to have a rabbit?

Can't see the fuss about a man buying this for himself - interestingly the pearl-clutchers on this thread don't come across as progressive feminists but just mirrors of old-fashioned patriarchal shaming of women for their sexuality. Except they're shaming men for their sexuality. Great job ladies.

However buying it as a Secret Santa present is way weirder. What kind of office culture makes that acceptable!

I have worked in a couple of places where that kind of thing would be OK as a gag SS gift.

I hated working in those places and I don't any more, but those sorts of cultures do exist. They tend, in my experience, to be very heavily dominated by one sex.

but if a woman buys herself a Rampant Rabbit Thruster Delux she is 'empowered' and in control of her sexuality and listening to her bodys needs?
A man has a toy and suddenly he's a sad wanker and a probably a serial rapist?

@user1471447863 agree. You can't have both ways. I enjoy my sex toys with and without my husband but equally I am not going to dictate his sex toys.

I'd be incredibly mortified if I received this, even as a joke secret santa gift, from a manager or even same level colleague for Christmas.

Honestly OP, i would be asking your partner how well he knows the individual he intends on giving this to. I'd presume he isn't daft enough to give it to somebody he barely knows but then he has also left this out in the open and intends on wrapping it in your DS's wrapping paper.

I'd be having words.

I would urge him not to give this tbh. It's a bit of a step too far isn't it? Does the person hes giving it to have a wife/girlfriend? Cause I wouldn't be that impressed if someone gave DH one of these (don't have a massive issue with the item, just weird as hell giving it as a gift, even a jokey one!)

Your husband sounds like a David Brent level idiot. One who might get into serious trouble for this in any normal workplace.
