For our graduation ceremony from the Peace Corps, when we moved from Trainee to Volunteer, we went to the American Ambassador for Suriname’s house, Dennis Hayes (http://www.theemergencegroup.com/our-team). I gave our graduation speech, wore the only dress shirt and tie I brought. Good times. Kilo popped a few buttons on his shirt and flashed his nipple. Both things got captured on film. Best times.
I got a sample of Durex Real Feel condoms the other day, courtesy of CrowdTap. I gave away a bunch of them! I’m still waiting to hear back how they were received. What a great way to get sex from your partner, “Hey, honey, I need to test this condom. It’s for science!” Hopefully, my friends get lucky. ;)
As for me, I’ll have to test it on a banana. I had a partner when I applied, but alas, no more. It doesn’t stop me from talking about condoms though! And the process of sharing these with my friends has brought up some interesting thoughts about how sex really doesn’t need to be a big deal. Sure, it’s got some seriousness to it, but there’s NO reason not to talk about it. Maybe if we spent more time being open about it, we’d have a lot less problems.
Influenster gave me two samples of Speed Stick to try out. The first thing I did was check to see what the deodorant looked like. I was expecting a gel, but it was a chalk, which is a huge plus. I used Speed Stick for years as a teen, but had to stop using it because the alcohol burned me. When I switched to chalk, it worked a lot better. So, I was glad to see them go with a different make-up. However, the smell was very feminine. It was too floral and sweet. I prefer a musky scent. Allows me to maintain my Sasquatch aura.
I had a friend sample it too. He had the same thoughts, with an added critique that it didn’t keep him dry. He gives it a 2/5 for that. He also found it too girly smelling.
Influenster gave me a complimentary sample of Speed Stick Gear antiperspirant/deodorant to test. I haven’t used Speed Stick in a long time. Last time, it was that colored gel stuff and it ended up giving me a rash, so I switched to something “chalky.” First impression of Speed Stick Gear? It’s chalky! Yay! Next, the smell. We all know I can’t smell (very well/at all), but I gave each a whiff. Both Fresh Force and Clean Peak smell really fruity to me. Take that as you will. The true test? Does it work? It’s deodorant.
However, I am going to let my coworker try it out. We’ll see if he can put it through it’s paces! Ooo boy.
