I know what you are thinking

"She's a fake."

"She's got problems other than THAT."

"I bet her feet smell funny after a run."

Okay, so no one's perfect. I certainly don't claim to be.  But LA is a tough place for an average girl.  I've learned she better have a couple of tricks up her sleeve to stay ahead of the packs of blondes and silcone.

Now, I know... a nice girl should be able to find a nice boy anywhere. I did. He was cute, he was romantic, he held me during the fight scenes in 300. He even gave me a wazoo.

Until he found out....

I've never owned a dildo or a vibrator.  I don't even know what to do with a cock ring. (do you just place it on there or what? and what exactly is it supposed to do?)

He promptly dumped me the next morning.

But the thing is... those places are so intimidating. Have you ever BEEN to a sex toy shop or look for toys online? The variety is ENORMOUS. And all of them cost a fortune! I don't know what to do or where to start.  

I'm working my tail off at production internships (no pay), a personal assistant (can we say "thank god there's a minimum wage"?) and a couple of sporadic gigs as a background extra ($60 for a days work... with taxes taken out, that comes to a little over $40... about 1/12 of my rent. That is, if I don't need to buy groceries)   

So how am I going to spring $50 for a vibrator that I don't know what to do with?

Talking to a few of my girlfriends, they've had similar encounters with ex-boyfriends. So I've decided to take matters into my own hands. 

We all want to be better in bed. We do. But we need to have a place to start.

I'm going to verse myself in the mysteries of the sex toy world. In the end, I want to create a starter kit with detailed instructions for all of us average girls who don't want to be porn stars, but want to have fun. I'll do my part- I have some savings and I'll get a job working as a barista at Starbucks or something, but I could use your help too.

With just one dollar donation (or two), I'll put it in my fund for starting up this new business. Because really, no matter who you are, I think we could all benefit by empowering us womenfolk in the bedroom.

Thank you for your support.
