I review sex toys for a living – my partner HATES it but my 79-year-old dad always asks me for recommendations 0 303

A GRAN who reviews sex toys for a living has revealed her partner can’t stand her job – but she’s always giving her elderly dad tricks of the trade. 

Edwina, 56, spends “99 per cent” of her time in the bedroom and can have up to six orgasms on a “good testing day”.

But despite reviewing the latest toys for both men and women, her partner – who does not wish to be named – refuses to join her at work.

“My partner is dead set against it,” Edwina told The Sun Online.

“He was raised in a very modest household and sex is something that is kept in the bedroom between a man and a woman. 

“He is the complete polar opposite but he respects what I do – because I have done it for so long, I enjoy it and I’m good at it.”

The sex-savvy gran from Indiana, USA, is sent products in the post to personally test before giving her feedback on BedBible.com and the site’s YouTube page.

She starts by testing each product “clothed” before trying them out for herself.

And although her partner doesn’t join in, the rest of her family are always keen to learn more.

“I’ve had my dad come and say what have you got in your collection?” Edwina said.

“He’s a widower and he’s not out on the dating scene because he’s almost 80. 

“I’m like no problem I’ll fix you right up – I put everything in a bag, tie it up and say if you want to know how to use it go on YouTube I have a video.”

Edwina will spend “a good hour so” playing with each new product she receives, before testing its function properly.

Then, when she’s “in the mood”, she’ll “get in the bathtub or turn down the lights before bed and write down what I learned the next day”.

“First and foremost comes quality and the overall construction of the toy,” she explained.

“Then we look at function – how many speeds does it have, just vibration or does it have pulsation?”

First and foremost comes quality and the overall construction of the toy, then we look at function.

The proof should then come in the pudding.

Of the number of orgasms she can have “on a good testing day”, Edwina said: “It depends on the toy. Myself, probably on a good day four, five or six.”

The mum-of-three has always been open about sex toys with her kids and has even had help from them while testing in the past.

And she thinks more parents should talk openly about masturbation with their kids.

She said: “My daughters had vibrators before they lost their virginity.

“They both grew up thinking sex toys, masturbation and things like that were completely normal. 

“Some parents might not agree with that but I told my girls learn to take care of yourself first and then you will be able to pass that onto your partner.”

Edwina added: “It’s important to be open to your children about these kind of things, and once you know your own body and what turns you on that’s something you can share with your partner down the road.”

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 40

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 28

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

Surely he can’t just show up when he likes?

I’m a mess and need to start getting a grip for the kids’ sake.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
