Do you think it's odd to be hosting a toy party w/ my MIL?

My MIL recently started being a rep for an adult toy party company. I invited alot to my girlfriends most of which have never met her (btw she's more like a SIL then a MIL) and they all think its odd. I was just trying to help her out getting started and also it's nice to have a girls night in once and awhile. She has always been very open and honest about her sex life and asked questions about mine and her son's. At first it was weird to me but that's just the type of relationship we have.

  • all i have to say is you should be greatful to have that kind of relationship with your MIL! Have you seen some of teh posts on here? I'd kill for one I could simply have a civil conversation with. Yeah i think for most of us it would be weird but your not most of us and if you two are cool with it who cares what anyone else thinks?

  • the only thing that seems weird to me is that she asks about her sons sex life...thats a bit icky. But I think its great you are friends with her, i hope to be that kinda MIL one day. Rather than be a jealous ass to my dil, I want to appreciate her for loving my son so much. :o) have fun!

  • I think that's great! My MiL is wonderful, a real treasure and more of a mother to me than my foster-mothers ever were. So far , she hasn't gotten into holding adult toy parties but I can talk to her about anything including intimate issues and she is so supportive and kind. When I hear of other womens' problems with their MiLs , I realise how lucky I am.
