Not Your Mother's Sexytime Bon Voyage
August 12, 2013 1:26 PM Subscribe
I am being thrown a bridal shower that I'm relatively aware of. I know that it will take place involving both genders, and the location. I've been asked to provide a guest list, but I don't know how to do that when I don't know what the purpose of a coed bridal shower is for someone who is demonstrably not a virgin. Help, please.

The last time I attended a bridal shower, I was fifteen. It mostly involved only women, and was essentially like a sexytime bon voyage. Older family women came to give marriage advice, combined with young woman of the brides' age to tell her about Things and be risque. Lingerie and sex jokes was a big deal.
This is my second marriage. I have a kid. It is obvious that I am no stranger to sexytimes, even if I wasn't open about it, which I am. This bridal shower is being held in a place that primarily serves alcohol with their food and is involving the menfolk as well.
What goes on at these things? Has anyone been to a recent bridal shower and can tell me about it?
And most importantly, who do I invite? I know usually lists are more exclusive for showers, but isn't that only because it's women-only? Or are there more criteria?
