You know, until I read this, I hadn’t noticed the difference in attitude about sex toys between gay men and straight men.

Among gay men, it seems to me that sex toys are just considered to be another part of exploring or experimenting with sexuality. But now that I think about it, you’re absolutely right about straight guys. They’re taught to be ashamed of sex toys, as if they demean virility or something.

"A real man don’t need no sex pocket pussy, god dammit! Real women are falling all over him!”

Something like that.
