On Momversation: Birth Control

I like this Momversation. It’s funny, moves along, and has a lot of my witty bits. Love woman just laying all the personal stuff out there. Well, leave it to bloggers.

One bit of birth control that I recommend that didn’t make it in the final cut is this… go to a county fair or an amusement park and look at the fat, unhappy families, tired and cranky who just spent way too much money. I want to go up and say, “Was it worth it?” (The day at the place, not the kids, but you know.)

Sidebar:  Patrick Swayze… waaah. I know it was expected, but bless him. That guy was in two of the most seminal chic flicks EVER. “Dirty Dancing”, which I saw about 10 times when it came out, and it acted like Prozac for me. Sweet hunky guy falling for unconventionally pretty gal. Also the last film to deal realistically about abortion. As in, sometimes a woman ( poor, unmarried, etc.) just needed to get one. They never show that any more.

“Ghost.”  I was separated by 500 miles from my then fiancee and was so in love. I would watch that film and feel the love he and Demi Moore had and cry my eyes out. He was such a stud muffin, and in both films he was so vulnerable. Think he was underrated as an actor. And as actors would say, he committed. Like in that great sketch with Chris Farley. So funny, because he committed to it.

And committed of course to his wife since he was a kid. A real love story.

Now I Have To Stick Up for Miley

Coming on the heels of talking about sexy teens, I see this and I have to climb up on my soap box. Please indulge me. Lifestyles condoms wants an underage girl to be the “face” of their product. They want 15-year-old Miley Cyrus to rep their rubbers.

Now, of course her people said that would never happen, but Lifestyles still put out a press release that they offered it to her, trying to get some publicity off the virtual back of Hannah Montana and the shock value of having an underage girl, one who says she is planning on being a virgin until marriage, to be part of their condom brand.

I have bought many condoms in my life – in fact, I still do. (Can’t take the pill and I gave up on the diaphragm years ago. How many yeast infections can one gal have?) But I am starting my own personal boycott of Lifestyles condoms. It’s gross that they would cook this up and think it’s okay to use a young girl, even a famous one, to associate with something that covers a penis.

Please join me in NOT buying any more Lifestyles condoms.
