This time a couple of years ago I was planning my wedding and my lifelong best friend was planning a hen night. She did a fantastic job and we had the best time but hen nights are more than just a drink now, along with a hen night comes all the obligatory willy shaped and themed products and my hen party was no exception! My friend had done us all a party bag with lots of different things in it including Willy Themed Drinking Straws.
The straws are just like any regular plastic drinking straw, made from white plastic they are approximately 22 cm's long and 5 cm's from the top they have the usual bendy bit, what's different about them is that about 2/3 up they have a little pink plastic willy, this measures approximately 3 cm's and is quite detailed, there's absolutely no mistaking what it is!
The willy straws worked perfectly well as drinking straws and the little model willy bought out the child in us all, including my mum, and we giggled like silly school girls. The Willy Drinking Straws are not, in my personal opinion, offensive in any way, they are just a bit of fun. If you have anyone in your party who doesn't fancy drinking through one of these or is a bit prudish you can actually slide the willy right off the straw, you don't have to have it on there.
The straws were strong enough and lasted the whole evening.
These are available in lots of places, party shops both on the high street and on line, Amazon currently have a packet of 10 straws for £1.43, the packaging is simple just a clear cellophane bag with a card attached to it. they are a good laugh and are ideal not only for hen parties but for general girly nights, parties or even a girls only holiday.
If you are attending or organising anything like this I can recommend Willy Drinking Straws, they are a bit of fun and bound to raise a giggle or two.
I got these and actually took them on a girly holiday to Spain, I know seemed a bit made to everyone else as well! However I have to say they were genious. We had a great giggle with them in the room warming up with some cheap drinks and they just added that bit of extra fun to kick things off. I also used them on my hen night to great effect as it seemed they are like men magnets! Not sure why all the guys wanted our willy straws, hope they weren't doing comparisons! Also we found that if you pull enough (please use causion and a certain amount of alcohol for best girly giggle results) you can dislodge the willy from the sraw to make it a very funny key pendant or handbag assessory when you no longer want the straw. Although I have to say I have been reusing mine for sometime and the stand up well to use ;)
As one of my duties as matron of honour for my best friends wedding, it fell to me to organise a hen night, not a mean feat for me as I was at that time 5 months pregnant with my second child, and my friend is not really a stripper kind of girl (though after half a bottle of Tia Maria I think I may have gotten away with it!).
Alongside the usual night of drinking, singing (karaoke is a must! Nothing beats singing "like a virgin" with a great fat pregnant bird!) there seems to be a new trend of providing party bags as part of the nights proceedings, a new thing for me, though my hen night attendances have been few and far between!
After much perusal I decided that plenty of sex orientated goodies would be the best way to go, hence the review I will now do for you.
The product I will now review for you are - "willy drinking straws".
Now for most of you this is a pretty self explanatory description of this product, but for the more naive among you.....liars! Lol!
In a pack I received 10 drinking straws around 5" in length which is around the normal length for a bog standard straw, though after asking my husband how big 5" was this straw should have been considerably bigger!
The straw is a normal cylindrical shape up to around 1" from the top, where there it changes in to a rather symmetrical and pretty looking version of a penis, I would like to say of my extensive knowledge of penises this is the nicest one I have seen (but of course I have been married for 11 years, so I am comparing it to very few....one!), but by this I mean the pretty aspect is the fact that it is not actually attached to a man, so when sucking on it you are not going to have a surprise substance going into your mouth! (Sorry!)
You obviously have to suck on the end of the "member" to draw your drink through it, so not only are you partaking of the hen night spirit and tradition, but you are effectively getting more from your alcoholic drink, drinking through a straw actually gets you drunker faster (or that is what I was led to believe as a 14 year old, drinking my cider through one!).
The straw itself is made from a thicker plastic than an actual straw, so would probably last for more than one hen night, though of course make sure you keep your own, with these being fully washable, though hand washing only.
Price wise you are looking from 99p onwards, with mine being available in a local joke shop, but are available in many different versions on www.amazon.co.uk starting from £2.69.
These are of course a joke item, and should not be used for anything other than a drinking straw, but as an accompaniment to a hen party gift bag, these were a fun little bag filler, recommended!
