Dildo

Washington Dildo

They say you learn something new every day. And sometimes while teaching something new, you also learn something new. Yesterday, and I don’t quite remember how the conversation came up, someone at work mentioned the word “dildo” . Apparently, it’s a term that has been incorporated into Spanish, but there was some debate about its actual meaning (whether or not the term also included vibrating devices). That was when I was asked to enter the conversation to give some of my native English insight.

Wikipedia is a really wonderful thing. Even if there are questions about the accuracy or partiality of its entries, you still can find a wealth of information. And in reading the entry on dildos to my co-workers, I also discovered an incredibly fascinating world out there consisting of dildos, vibrators, double-ended dildos (with all of their different features and applications), strap ons, and butt plugs. Even the history of sex toys is rather interesting.

And just think that I was getting all excited about my new WiFi music set up when there was a whole untapped universe of low tech toys out there to waiting to be plugged in.

Of course, the purpose of this whole post is simply another attempt at using a couple of commonly searched for terms on the Internet to increase my readership.

    Ironically, James, I think that I first learned the term from you circa 9 years old. I believe that I learned a lot of rich vocabulary from you back in those days.

  3. Sadly, I don’t think my vocabulary has improved since then, but thanks for the compliment cugino!!!
