Cady, Linsey Lohan’s character in the fine cinematic masterpiece entitled Mean Girls said it best: “Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.” Of course, here in Boystown, where lines of gender are often blurred, Halloween can become a hodgepodge of ass-less jockstraps, fierce drag queens, and in light of this political season, Sarah Palin impersonators.
Yes, there is something beautiful and mystifying about Halloween, when everybody has a chance to express their inner creativity and assume the character of just about anyone or anything (and look pretty darn sexy while doing it). From the jock-strapped cop who barred all which was legally allowed AND arrested every cute boy in sight, to the superhero duo whose glittered get-ups (and large bulges) turned heads, this year’s Halloween was, for lack of a better term, a hot mess.
But amidst all the excitement and fun, I couldn’t help but ask: why must we wait 364 days every year for one night of wild make-believe? What is so very dangerous about expressing our inner desires and confidence on a regular basis? After all, style icon Marc Jacobs now wears skirts regularly (and has managed to retain his boyfriend in the process). More often than not, Halloween is sexy: a time when we let our hair down and explore our wildest fantasies. Hot cops, tantalizing nurses, and luscious divas all come out to play in a wild city-wide party. We become confident, assertive, and adventurous in our sexual pursuits, social interconnectivity, and mere identity development. From an outsider’s perspective, which I held this year while working at Tulip, it truly is a beautiful thing.
Now, dear reader, you may be asking what all of this has to do with Tulip and sex toys? The answer, of course, is EVERYTHING. We, at Tulip, are dedicated to creating a sexier, more confident you. We carry the adventure, the confidence, and safety you need to explore ways in which you can make your life in the bedroom less average, and more “Halloween”, every day. It’s about empowerment, baby! Check below for just a few ideas of how Tulip can help you express your inner wild-side during the 364 other days of the year!
