Are Rabbits Erotic?
The lovely, Lucy Felthouse, was kind enough to offer me a spot on her site for a guest blog. Her only conditions were that my post be related to writing and erotica.
Having a wide-open invitation for a topic seemed great at first, but I had to come up with an idea. I’ve always had problems when I had too many choices, like going to a restaurant where the menu reads like a short novel—my head begins to spin.
Then it dawned on me—my blog was scheduled to be posted February 3rd. That date has always been special to me. It’s the birthday of my best friend whom I’ve known since I was six, and this year, it also marks the start of the Chinese New Year—the Year of the Rabbit. I thought, “Hmm…rabbits—are they erotic?” From there, the synapses started firing every which way, a bulb flickered, and then there was light (though dim, at best).
Yes, rabbits can be erotic…when they vibrate.
In my upcoming book, I write about a woman who is into self-satisfaction and Rabbit vibrators. For those of you unfamiliar with this sex toy, it’s a phallic-shaped vibrator with a clitoral stimulator attached to the shaft. This stimulator is designed like a pair of rabbit ears and made of a soft jelly-like material. The toy vibrates and rotates to provide both internal and external pleasure at the same time. In some models, the bulging midsection of the shaft contains pleasure beads that spin wildly. With different patterns of pulsation and vibration, varying speeds of rotation, and the tickling sensation of rabbit ears, a loud and violent orgasm would appear to be the natural outcome.
I must admit I don’t own a Rabbit, though I’ve done extensive research on it. I’ve had numerous models demonstrated for me with the thought of buying one, but for reasons I won’t go into here, it’s not my vibrator of choice.
Now, to tie this back to the Year of the Rabbit (my mother would be horrified to know I was writing about vibrators as it relates to the most sacred of Chinese holidays), so what is the New Year going to bring? According to several articles I’ve read, the year represents youth, motion, and activity, so it will be an energetic time where young people will demand change and political reform. The Rabbit is also known to be passionate, which means it will be a year of sex scandals and affairs.
While not a believer in astrology, I do have a soft spot for the Chinese Zodiac, and here’s what I’ve found regarding the sexual traits of the Rabbit:
Rabbits prefer tenderness in their lovemaking. They enjoy foreplay and public displays of affection. They can be extremely charming, and their physical beauty naturally draws people to them. Rabbits will “mate for life” with the right person.
When I read this, I found it sweet and romantic. I even felt slightly sheepish for connecting the gentle Rabbit to the intense Rabbit vibrator. That is, until I remembered one thing—I’m not a Rabbit, I’m a Snake, and snakes eat rabbits for lunch.
To find out if you’re a Rabbit, refer to the year you were born:
