ok, first off, get over buying girls socks. i'm sure that shop assistants have seen peolpe buying a lot more embarrassing things then a pair of socks, especially a pair the you don't intend to wear.

secondly, the one's that i use look like they are meant to be footy socks or something. nothin girly about em smile i bought them at a shop in australia called target that i guess is like a department store. but i'm sure you could get them in a sports shop, then you'd look manly tongue

go get em tiger



sorry, i was in a bit of a cranky mood when i wrote this, not usually such a b!tch. but yeah, try looking for footy socks, cos here in australia they're pretty long.

Ooow that does sound bad. OK. Maybe a desensitisation programme is in order.



Start small. Forget socks. Start by going into an old fashioned chemist (the sort with counters and people serving you) and ask for a packet of tampons. Preferably Super sized. You can use them for very tiny firepoi and nobody will even notice you're spinning them.



Then work up to a packet of plain condoms. You can put a tennis ball in them and use them as see-through poi. Again, very discreet.



Then try some fancy novelty condoms... glow in the dark, spiky bits, coloured fruit flavours...



Once you feel comfortable... work up to the hard stuff.



But only if you're an adult, of course.

Posted:ther'es lodsa places to get them market stalls are the cheapest and i reckon stuffing them with chaep ass juggling balls is best as they are heavy but don't hurt too much if you hit yourself
