Having just lived through the start of another school year, I got to thinkin’. When I went to college several years ago, I moved into a dorm for my sophomore year, sharing a room with a new college roommate, Katie. I had just discovered the pleasures of using a Magic Wand (it was the Hitachi Magic Wand back then) and I sure wasn’t going to leave it at home – I’d miss it too much! So I packed it in a suitcase along with my other personal care items, you know, hair dryer, curling iron, tampons, hair mousse, toothpaste, deodorant, tweezers, and other things I just couldn’t live without.
The best thing about the Magic Wand is that I could unpack it without feeling embarrassed by one of those more explicit sex toys falling out of my suitcase. It was my massager! It looks like any other plug-in gizmo I own – like my hairdryer – so I didn’t have to explain it to my roommate. I could leave it out on the corner of my bed and just explain it was for my shoulders after swim practice. I didn’t need to hide it from Katie and she just knew that when she heard some buzzing behind the closed doors, I was just using my Hitachi Magic Wand for a relaxation session. Of course, when I gave her the okay to come to the bedroom we shared (this being a dorm room), she could see that I had a smile on my face and was really relaxed, ready to start jumping into my studies for a few more hours.
Little did she know what I was really using it for. But during that year, I quietly confessed what I really did with my Hitachi Magic Wand. When I told her, I could see a little smile coming through the corners of her mouth, and then she laughed and said “I know what you’re using it for. I have one, too.”
We both laughed and now, even years later, we keep telling each other stories of how much we still love our Magic Wands. Katie just got her new one from one of these websites. So she only just replaced the Hitachi Magic Wand she got in college with a shiny, new Magic Wand Original. I can’t wait to share more stories together!
