It is fair to say that I know where my towel is, and I am sure most people do not need any form of explanation for this rather strange comment. I know where my towel is and I am not afraid to use it, for many different things. Recently, though, we have been considering getting a few new things for our apartment, just to spice things up a little, and the question of shared things came up. Towels are, for many, individual matters: one person’s towel is not willingly shared with another person.

Some people have no problems, there are enough examples of towels made for (almost) every eventuality right down to personalized ones. In fact, if you do a little bit of research on the Internet you’ll find towels for almost every occasion you can imagine, in every single color under the sun and most sizes. What we want, though, are special to us and, if possible, ones which fit in not only with our life together as a couple, but also with the color of the bathroom!
And yet it is not quite so easy to find the right towels, unless you’re prepared to fork out quite a bit of cash or travel great distances. They tend to come in sets, which makes sense, but not necessarily sets embroidered with what we wish. I mean, can you imagine one towel here being used rather more than the other? Come to think of it, I imagine one towel in this set wouldn’t even see the light of day!

Trouble is, in such a relationship as we have – two women living together as a couple – the world hasn’t quite caught up with our needs. The Gay Dollar is accepted as being a market for the future, some even cater for the Gay Dollar now, but it hasn’t caught hold quite as much as you might imagine.

Perhaps we could adapt. Knowing where your towel is is not quite the same as knowing what to use it for, or which end in this case! But it is good to know that someone caters for those who wish to differentiate between their face and their butt, even if other people cannot tell the difference.

And I wonder whether those establishments which differentiate between men and women in such a form also have specially designed paper towels to add to their designations.

No, what we want is something like this: two towels in a set without any connotations of a different gender. Fine, we’ll probably get them mixed up now and then, but that’s what different colors are for, right?
