As I asked last week…Why in the movies does the ‘girls sleepover party’ always result in a group of girls – who are either are scantily clad or in cute pj’s – end up in pillow fights? I have partaken in many sleepovers during my lifetime and not once, never ever, did we decide it would be fun to bash each other with pillows. Men and boys seem to think that when we get together it is part of our ‘fun’ and on some level this has become a male fantasy. Well guys….sorry to bust your pillow fight fantasy, it turns out that your fantasies and our realities are really quite different.
So let’s examine a GIRLS sleepover party or GIRLS get together and what really goes down, versus a GUYS perception of what it is that we girlie girls do……Perhaps…. a game of True or False?
True or False ?….GUYS think at sleepovers we paint each other’s nails……
- We live in Los Angeles, there are nail salons on every corner! Why would we take the risk of having our nails look like they were painted by five year olds when we can get a full mani and pedi for about 26 bucks?
True or False? …..GUYS think we amuse ourselves by braiding each other’s hair….
- In a city where there is a blow dry bar every five blocks, and where we most likely got our hair done for the ‘sleepover party or get together’ in case someone shoots a group selfie (as who wants a bad hair picture turning up on Instagram of Facebook); so braiding….that is saved for when we want to have the ‘ little girl look’ or the ‘Britney Spears school girl look’….Braids and Pigtails are saved for that ‘slut’ channeling holiday fondly referred to as Halloween….NOT for sleepovers!
True or False? …..GUYS think we dance around in our sexy lingerie or hot PJ’s……
True or False? ……GUYS think we have Pillow Fights………..
- As you saw from the video last week and this week (below)…..Pillow fights? Nope!
True of False?……GUYS think that after we are tired from dancing and pillow fights, we play…….Truth or Dare….
- We don’t need a stupid game to find out the truth, we just need………..ALCOHOL!
So I will let you in on a little secret…..here is what we will do when we have our girlfriends all together, hanging out at home, sleepover party or not…..
We get comfy, we relax, we put on music, we pig out on junk food, we drink wine, we gossip, and we talk. If you think we talk a lot with you, well….you ain’t seen nothing yet! Then, after a couple of glasses of wine or cocktails……
We talk more, we drink more, we get tipsy, we talk even more, we laugh, we may cry, we giggle, we drink more wine, and the more we drink, the more we talk the more truth that comes out. We don’t need Truth or Dare, or pillow fights, or dancing or hair braiding or nail painting….we just need girl time, and FYI……..alcohol doesn’t hurt!
So GUYS the only reality about these evenings, and I am sorry to say none of them are in your fantasies, are………..
- Alcohol is a truth serum, your girlfriend’s friends will likely find out how the ‘state of your union’ is, and much time will be spent on debating the eventual outcome of your union……….
- Your girlfriend’s friends will most likely find out if you are good in bed….and….
- Your girlfriend’s friends will for sure find out the size of your ‘GUYhood’ because either it is so perfect your girlfriend brags about it after a few cocktails, or because if it isn’t quite ‘brag worthy’ your girlfriend feigns shyness and won’t remark……….either way, the truth is out there….
So GUYS….Sorry to burst your fantasy bubble that the movie industry has so nicely invented for us GIRLS, but once again…Your Fantasy in NOT our Reality!
