My party that Friday night began like every other party: women giggling as I passed around tasty and buzzy things… except for one woman. She stood at a distance and didn't participate. I thought she wasn't interested, so I didn't push it by trying to engage her in the fun. After everyone had ordered her products, this woman came back and said she didn't really want anything. I must have looked puzzled because she went on to explain that she had been served with divorce papers that afternoon and had no idea why. I was very young and very new in the business, so I had a tendency to treat all situations with humor. I simply said, "Well, are you ever going to have sex again?" She smiled and said, "I imagine so." So I sent her home with a few of our basic products — a lubricant, a small vibrator, an edible lotion, and a simple game.
At 7 A.M. the next morning I got a phone call from the woman. She asked me where I lived. "My husband wants to talk to you," she said. I wasn't sure how to react. Was he going to chew me out? Was he going to tell me to mind my own business or just shoot me? Well, I'm pretty brave, so I have her directions and they both arrived by 8 A.M. I stepped outside in my pajamas as she stepped out of the car. To my amazement, this woman looked like a completely different person. She bounced over to me with a big ol' smile, and I bravely asked her if she was there to buy more products. After nodding, she motioned for her husband to get out of the car. Just as I turned around to face him, I looked and saw that he had papers in his hand — their divorce papers. He smiled at me and tore them up right there in my driveway.

That moment excited me, changed me, and matured me. In fact, it changed everything. I realized that by opening lines of communication and by knowing how to encourage intimacy, the romance and passion in virtually any relationship can be rekindled. The moral of the story is that it is never to late to bring sexual pleasure and love into your relationship — even if it seems as though it is.
That's a story I heard from Trudy, one of our full-time Passion Consultants from a small town in Tennessee. In fact, that story has practically become a classic here at Passion Parties International — it expresses so well the work we do and the extraordinary effect it can have.
