Everyone needs a friend like Kevin

I walked in late to a conversation the other night at a social gathering.  Men and women just talking and then I started to hear all the virtues of a friend named 'Kevin', who I'd never met but another friend had.  The guy sounded like superman: powerful, resilient, capable, and soon enough all the men all wanted to meet (or kneecap) this Kevin, while the women all coo-ed in admiration.  It took me a while to appreciate they were talking about a vibrator, affectionately known as 'Kevin'.  I noticed that the women all seemed to have an opinion, and as the alcohol flowed, they all shared names.  'Tom' and 'Harry' featured... but no 'Dick'.

Everyone needs a friend like Kevin

Amazingly, there were no names like 'Loretta' or 'Kylie' mentioned by the guys... no girls names at all.  To be clear, at no time was there any belief that the men assembled didn't masturbate.  That they did, do, masturbate was more than a given, it was like a 'sun comes up in the morning' kind of thing that was never up for contention.  Confident amongst friends, and being grown-ups, all of the guys didn't bother disputing one of life's little inevitabilities.  Instead, they listened for another inevitability, a comparison between them and their respective partner's 'Kevin'.

I found many things enlightening in the animated discussion which ensued, but without question, I was most amazed that so few of the men had their own device.  The guys were each comfortable in their partners having a consumer product for their sexual health, but not for themselves.  I pressed the point and ultimately learned that they were on the main oblivious to even the availability of those items.  To me, it was surprising primarily in that the sample set, some of my friends, were not atypical of the population at large.  Generally speaking, sure, but how can it be that men, with an unashamed reputation for masturbation, be unaware that there are tools to make their masturbation better?

Admittedly, the word is getting out slowly and we're seeing an increase in interest in masturbation aids for guys.  Yes, I have a vested interest in men seeing the light, but even on a personal level, I think this is great.  Far from not wanting women to have all the fun, I think it's great that all adults, men and women, rise above lesser primates/mammals to use something more than just their hands.  Remember, humans aren't the only animals who masturbate ... but we're the only ones with the ability to think/design/invent/create tools to make a good thing better.

It's probably appropriate to mention too that while most of the participants in my recent discussion were heterosexual, the same applies to all orientations, men and women.  Aside from Top Drawer Essentials being primarily about biology, rather than psychology, the fact is that there are tools/toys available to suit all tastes.   Female aids are available to suit nicknames like 'Kevin' and also names like 'Honey', just as male aids befitting nicknames like 'Nathan' and 'Tullulah' are on offer.  In other words, there are solo-time aids for guys and girls, regardless of their orientation.

Of course, I took notes as to the attributes and capabilities of the devices being described by the women for subsequent cross-referencing against the Top Drawer Essentials catalogue.  Not surprisingly, the features which came up for discussion, positive and negative, parallel what we're finding in terms of the products which are most popular.  Sure, those assembled might not have been a statistically perfect sample set or representative of the wider Australian community, but there were definitely some trending perspectives as to the desirables in 'Kevin' for the ladies:

  • He doesn't need to be rechargeable, but people are becoming less and less tolerant of the need to keep a drawer full of spare batteries.
  • He doesn't need to be large or small, or any particular shape ... provided he hits 'the spot'.  There's something appealing about the portability of a small bullet vibrator, wands are truly magic, rabbits are abundant for good reason and classic vibrators are timeless.
  • He doesn't even need to vibrate.  Some of the sonic 'vibrators', particularly the clitoral vibrators are making lots of friends.
  • He needs to be quiet.  Gone are the days when a tractor-like noise coming from the bedroom or bath is endearing.  Now we like our Kevin's to be silent, but still able to rock your world.

Ladies, if you need a 'Kevin' or your top drawer essential isn't living up to your needs, Top Drawer Essentials has what you need.  Guys, it's time you got with the program and looked at getting yourself a little something.
