Bedside drawers can be very personal spaces. You could have ANYTHING in there. Like a baby. You could have a living baby in your drawer. And that’s your business. Or, if you don’t want babies like me, you can go to Bedsider.org and figure out which method is right for you to prevent babies from suddenly occurring.
Because when people think about what’s usually in beside drawers, they think about super secret sexy stuff. We all know what I’m talking about. To quote Bea Arthur’s Dorothy Zbornak, “Condoms, Rose! Condoms! Condoms! CONDOMS!”
And thanks to Lucky Bloke, I have all the condoms I could ever need. And honestly, I do not need this many condoms. But one day they sent me a huge package (that’s what she said!!!!!!) and I was left with no choice but to stare in awe at this wide variety of condomocity.
Wow! It’s like pop art! So fun to look at. So colorful! So kind of anyone to think I would need all of these! (But if you’re one of those people who’s “not into condoms” — which is basically 90% of people — I really do recommend checking out Bedsider for other options. Lots of fun stuff to click over there.)
But there are more things in my drawer. Things that are in no way sex related. Like this:
It’s an action figure of the vaguely popular Saturday Night Live character, Mary Katherine Gallagher! This has been in my drawer for about 8 years now. I dressed as her one year for Halloween because I was REALLY COOL! And what’s this?
A TWO dollar bill??? I probably got this from the tooth fairy several years ago, or maybe yesterday, and I still don’t know what to do with it. Dare I spend it? DARE I?
This is a keychain I had custom made for me when my family and I went to Orlando about 20 years ago. My parents made up the name “Almie” so no one ever has Almie merchandise at theme parks. Truly a Bort situation. Thus, I insisted that for once in my life I would have a key chain with my name on it. So my entire family waited for me to get a stupid dinky keychain personalized with my name. We were heroes. Just for one day.
My bedside drawer has become something of a memory book. There is nothing useful in there at all. It’s just things that I don’t want to get rid of because it’s not like they’re taking up a huge amount of space and it’s not like I would get lots of money by selling them, so instead I will just keep them forever, because we know how nostalgia is one hell of a drug.

I’m really interested to see what kind of rubbish you guys REALLY have in your drawers. I know at least one of you has to have an action figure, and it probably isn’t as cool as mine, but that’s okay. You’ll get there. You’ll get there.
Every girl has that bedside drawer that holds the bedroom essentials: their Kindle, a pair of reading glasses, sexy lingerie. – whatever fits their personality. No matter what your drawer says about you, there’s birth control that will fit right in. Find the best method for your routine and style at Bedsider.org.
