What About B.O.B?

Dear Mistress Maeve,

I work with a group of women who like to chat and joke about their dating and sex lives. Usually I can keep up, but lately they've been joking about "Bob" — having dates with Bob, getting a new Bob, etc. I don't know who "Bob" is, but they all seem to love him. Can you clue me in so I don't feel so left out?


Dear Leslie,

It's not Bob — it's B.O.B, and it stands for Battery Operated Boyfriend (or Babe, depending on who's using it).

I admire your curiosity, but I have to ask: Why are they discussing vibrators at work? Generally offices have rules about this kind of talk precisely for the reason you wrote me a letter — it makes people uncomfortable (just ask my coworkers). I wholeheartedly believe in learning and talking about sex, but the workplace isn't always the best place to do so.

That said, if you're still determined to fit in with your kinky cubicle mates, why not throw an in-home sex toy party at your home and invite them? These days, instead of hosting a Tupperware or cosmetics party at your home, you and your friends can sit around the living room and shop for personal pleasure. You'll be killing two birds with one stone — you'll get into the inner circle at work and become close, personal friends with B.O.B.

Buzz, buzz,
