For six weeks now, myself, G and Gila have been planning a stagette. A stagette with a unique twist: it is for two friends who happen to be lesbians. Planning a stagette for lesbians is a wee challenge as the usual games one plays involving penises and etc really don’t apply. On Saturday night, we pulled off this adventure with great effect and I think everyone – the about to be married couple, included – had a real blast!
The couple is Deb & Dawn. Deb is one of my dearest lifelong friends. By that, I mean we’ve been friends since Grade 10. We did yearbook committee together [yes, I was one of those kids]; we lived together in Barbados (story of that is here); we survived college together; we did the Monaco-Nice-Villefranche-sur-mer adventure together; we confided in each other [she came out first, not that it was a contest or anything]; and Deb and Diabolo, her cute pooch, also lived a summer with me (albeit on the floor of my wee apartment) after a particularly nasty breakup. We been through A LOT together over the years and I am just so happy she’s found someone that cares for her deeply. Dawn and her are obviously in love and I’m excited to be the Best Man/Maid of Honour – take your pick – at their swank wedding in a couple weeks time.
Deb is now a successful travel agent who books some of Toronto’s most famous patrons, but more so, is a brilliant artist working in oil on canvass.
We plied the girls with several games to test their skill and knowledge of each other in order to determine whether or not they were ready to marry. We played “Tying the Knot”, “The Nearly Wed Game”, “Your Most Embarrassing Moment” (Dawn, you win!), “Massage This!” and then hired the oh-so-wonderful Carmen from cardioerotica to have guests and the girls learn how to dance erotically. This event was a riot, especially when Deb & Dawn had to compete in a head-to-head erotic chair dance routine! If you’re ever looking for something a little different that is fun and tasteful, consider hiring on Carmen, lemme tell you!
