Your Pride Hookup Kit

0

by Kate M.

705281_10101528635693620_1792066675_o

Yes, Pride (or your favorite anti-corporate alterna-Pride event) is about celebrating our victories, affirming our awesomeness, engendering a sense of community, and gearing up for the fights ahead. Sometimes, it’s also about making out with cuties. If you find yourself in a position to do sexy things with a sexy person, you don’t want to get caught with your pants down. Okay, you probably do, but you want to be prepared, is what we’re saying. Here are some supplies for safety and pleasure that you can easily keep in a pocket or a purse, in anticipation of your Pride hookup.

Lumo RedLumo blue

Oxballs Lumo Led Cockring
$23.95
Your cutie spots you from across the dance floor. The after-party was out of glow sticks by the time you got there, so you pulled this light-up cockring out of your pocket and started waving it in the air. The cutie admires your chutzpah, and soon enough you’re back at his shockingly huge apartment — Who is he? Is he on TV or something? Should you recognize him? — and he’s pulling the thick, stretchy TPR ring over your balls, letting it rest at the base of your cock. As he kneels before you, his face is faintly illuminated by the Lumo’s blue light.

Jimmyjane Iconic Bullet

Jimmyjane Iconic Bullet
$16.00
You appreciate that this three-speed vibe is small enough to fit easily into the pocket of even your skinniest, most impractical jeans. More than that, you appreciate the way your cutie’s eyes light up when you pull it out. You’re especially glad that you brought a condom to drop it into, for easy sharing.

Pleasure Chest Condom

Pleasure Chest Single Condom
$0.95
“You shop at The Pleasure Chest?” the cutie exclaims when you pull out this stylish condom. “That’s so sexy to me!”

Midnight Nitrile GlovesSkyn condomsHot Dams

Latex-Free Safer Sex Supplies
MidKnight Nitrile Gloves ($2.95/6pk), Lifestyles Skyn Condoms ($4.95/3pk), & Hot Dam Dental Dams ($1.95)
“I love that you shop at The Pleasure Chest,” the cutie whispers in your ear, “but I have a latex allergy.”
“That’s cool, babe,” you whisper back. (When did you become a beach bro? Did you get too much sun? Should you be worried?) “I came prepared.”

Sliquid Ride

 Sliquid Bodyworx Lube Cube
$15.95
You slipped one each of the silicone, hybrid, and water-based lubes from this box of twelve pillow packs into your purse before you headed out this morning. You have sensitive skin, and you wanted to make sure that you were carrying hypoallergenic lube. Now, you’re relieved to find that the cutie you’ve been kissing prefers water-based. (You opened this silicone earlier and used it to make your hair look shiny.)

Entangle Ties Satin Love Mask

Travel-Friendly BDSM Gear
Pleasure Chest Silk Entangle Ties ($14.95) & Satin Love Mask ($9.95)
You may be hooking up in the back of your cutie’s van, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get kinky.
