When I first got my hands on a Google Home Mini, it was through a deal my phone company had on; I was gifted a ton of extra swag for buying a new phone.
I thought it would be great in our living room, where we could control the lamps with just our voices.
I had some more credit for swag so asked for a second one— and this one was going to change everything. Because I decided to put it in the bedroom I share with my husband.
No longer would my husband and I compete for who could hop into bed faster, leaving the slowpoke to turn off the bedside lamp that was further than an arms-reach away.
So yes, essentially, this all began because I was looking for ways to become even more lazier than I am today. Isn’t consumerism grand?
But oh, that Google Home in our bedroom would become so much more than just a voice-activated light switch.

Spontaneous sex is easier now.
You know how, when you want to ‘get down to it’, there are certain sensory things you like to have in place first?
Like nice background music and sexy add-ons that just ‘up’ the atmosphere.
Google Home has you covered.
I recently returned from a five day business trip, and my husband was on his lunch break and just happened to be down the road running an errand.
He hadn’t seen me since I got home, and we were both skittish for some good lovin’.
He texted me asking, “Activate Sexy Time?”
I replied with an eggplant emoji.
It was on.
Google Home is a massive time saver.
A two-minute drive away, I was informed by my husband that we had to be quick.
Only two minutes to prep for some nookie, with a few hours of plane on me?
I raced upstairs, and while bursting through the master bedroom, called out, “Hey Google, Activate Sexy Time.”
Immediately, Google began to initiate a sequence of tasks that I had pre-programmed with my husband months ago, in jest.
