It looks like I have to weed my t-shirt collection.
This morning my son walked into the kitchen, where I was downloading email on my laptop, and said, “Go to Medicaltoys.com, dad.”
Excuse me… what? Why would a nine year-old want to go to Medicaltoys.com? How would a nine-year old even know about Medicaltoys.com, the “largest provider of medical toys, products and apparel for the medical fetish, nurse fetish and the medical BDSM scene on the web”?
It took me a split second to realize that I was standing there in my black Medicaltoys.com t-shirt. The nice folks that run the nation’s premiere medical fetish website sent me a couple of t-shirts after I mentioned them in a “Savage Love” column a couple of years back. My kid assumed it was a toy store—a toy store that specializes in toys for, you know, playing doctor. And it is. But it’s for adults that want to play doctor with speculums, medical restraints, catheters, etc.
My Medicaltoys.com t-shirts are two of my favorites. But it looks like they have to go. There’s no end to the sacrifices we parents have to make.
