As the summer is winding down we are left with the overwhelming feeling of “How did the summer pass so fast? How the hell are classes one week away? Fffffffffuuuuuuuu…” Trust me I understand. Getting back to college life is an exciting but the massive amount of stuff you have to do before you get back is treacherous. The most trying of which is shopping. After three years of college I’m an old pro at getting the things that I need, the cheapest, fastest, and with the least interaction with freshmen; but sometimes even I forget the important things. So this week I’m helping you with back to school shopping Let’s Talk About Sex style. Whether you’re a freshman or a seasoned vet read on and find out how you can get your sex game right for the new school year.
The first thing you need to know is where you are staying. Since classes have started or will be starting soon all around the world you should have this planed out already. Every housing situation brings with it advantages and disadvantages. Apartments offer lots of privacy but cost a ton and roommates limit your privacy. Single person dorms cost more than apartments in some cases and severely limit your space. Dorm suites cost less but limit your privacy and room availability.
For all of these situations money is a major issue. So what do you do? For your safer sex supplies you can generally visit your campus health center; they will have condoms ready for you all day. If your campus does not have them then visit your closest Planned Parenthood, they will always help you out. If you are in the boonies without one you are still not out of luck, Condom Depot has your back. For about $23 and free shipping they have a 100 condom sampler pack, that’s only $.23 per condom. Dental dams are much more expensive, so if you use those just get the cheapest condoms you can find and fashion your own. Cut off the tip, slice it long ways and voila you have just saved yourself the exorbitant expense of a dental dam.
If you are looking for sex toys on the cheap, well the internet is your best friend. I would suggest going with The Smitten Kitten. They are my personal favorite for all sex toys; they’re cheap and will be even cheaper with the coupon code Laura, which gives you 20% off your entire order plus free shipping. Hopefully they will approve us for our own coupon code. (fingers crossed) Since I’m not getting kickback from any of these places I pimp, I can also tell you that Amazon.com has a bunch of toys too and if you already have an account it’s easy to shop there… though I wouldn’t suggest it. The shopping experience at sex toy specific websites is generally better. If you do buy from Amazon, please visit the shop and see if we have item there first, we do get a small percentage from that. You do love us… right?
Women are always catered to in sex toy shops, but if you’re a guy I’ve got some special tips for you. The number one male sex toy, the Fleshlight/Fleshjack, is awesome but it costs a minimum of $65. However if you use the coupon code SMODCAST on the official website you can save 15% off your entire order. Fleshjack.com (the Fleshlight targeted at gay men) uses the coupon code MANHUNT for 10% off. If the Fleshjack originals are not what you want then you’d be better buying the Fleshlight and saving a bit more money. You can also visit this link for back to school savings at Fleshjack. If you are looking for dildos, butt plugs or other penetrative items use the Adam4Adam store. They cater to gay men, but all men have the same parts so shop here and save yourself a bit of money.
Now that you have this settled, you can get to studying… right?
Probably not, but if you have read this far then you are a real fan, and because of that you get the chance to win a gift certificate to The Smitten Kitten, or a the 100 condom sampler pack from The Condom Depot. All you have to do is send me an email by clicking this link. Just give me your name, email address, and your prize preference with the subject line “Back To School 2010”. At the end of the week I will randomly select 2 people to win. Good luck!
