Throe Down

Everyone talks about how great Liberator Throes are – and I totally agree.

I have experienced vulval ejaculation (commonly referred to as female ejaculation, which is gender essentialist, or squirting, which just makes me think of water guns) once (since writing this, twice! But the second time not expecting it and not putting a throe down, womp womp) in my life, and the next day I emailed Sandra at SheVibe begging for a Liberator Throe. Sleeping on a wet spot wasn’t fun, and I had experienced some issues with period leakage while I slept, so it seemed like it was time to graduate to waterproof bedding for all manner of issues.

While I haven't ejaculated on it, the Throe has come in handy. Here are some reasons why:

  • The abovementioned period leaks. I sleep with the throe under me when it’s shark week, and it helps a lot.

  • It makes me feel more comfortable when I think I might squirt – I usually have it under me during most sexual activity, unless I’m feeling lazy.

  • Period Sex! No mess!

  • It’s a great stand in ‘sex towel’ when there isn’t a towel on hand.

  • It’s a great insulator! My room is super cold if it’s 60°F or below because it’s an old house with single pane windows that are poorly insulated and poorly insulated wall/ceiling. The heavy plastic in the middle helps keep heat in, and it has become part of my daily blanket pile because of this.

  • The dog thinks it’s his. He will steal it and sleep on it. It’s covered in dog hair.

There are other reasons the throe is great. If you're new to anal and worried about making a mess, it will catch anything, wash right up in the wash, and not stain. Magic.

I only have a couple complaints about the throe: when I first got it, it smelled and felt like a new air mattress (the velvety side feels like all the air mattress tops I’ve ever encountered and the heavy plastic was offgassing something serious) but that has completely dissipated as it’s been lived on, if you put it satin side down, it WILL slip, there’s no way around it, and the velvety side is covered in dog hair. If you have pets that shed like me, you’ve lost any hope to not have it on everything. It has taken over my life and I’m just dealing with it.

I’ve never ejaculated on the throe, but I’ve gotten period blood and post-coital ooze all over it, and my partner has ejaculated on it – and there has never been an issue with the throe taking it gracefully and it washing out fine later.

Sex is leaky. This helps.
