Sunday Confessional: My Boyfriend Broke My Vibrator

I've been dating my boyfriend for about four months, and I thought everything was going great. The other night, we were getting it on, and I reached for my vibrator (like I always do), but when I tried to turn it on, it didn't work. My boyfriend said, "I guess the batteries are dead."


The next day, we were on our way to the grocery store and I said, "Oh, remind me to get batteries for the you-know-what." Then later that night, we went to bed and he started putting on the moves. When I reached for my vibrator, I remembered it wasn't working. "One sec," I said, and I ran downstairs, got the batteries, and came back to the bedroom. When I went to put them in, I could tell that it was totally broken. I looked at my boyfriend and was about to show him when he yelled "Dammit, why do you even need that thing?" Then he stormed out of the bedroom.

I followed after him and said "Babe, what's wrong?" He wouldn't answer and was acting really anxious, and I said, "Wait a minute — did you do this?" He started yelling, saying he should be all I need, and how he thinks it's weird that we use it every time we have sex. He even said he thought it was bizarre that I can't get off without a piece of "machinery."

So I'm a little annoyed that he broke my vibrator, but I'm really pissed that he was so rude, insulting, and insensitive to me. He even let it go so far as to let me buy new batteries and go through the trouble of running downstairs to get them. If he was so upset about it, why didn't he just say something instead of breaking the thing? Should I forgive him for acting like a child, or this this a sign that our relationship is doomed?
