I had been working in the editorial room of the film 'Men In Black II' for almost a year. I was traveling with the crew back and forth from New York to Los Angeles and we were overshadowed with a very limited time-frame to finish the heavy editing workload. This didn't allow for any active lifestyle and put us all into poor physical health.
When I got back to town and started playing soccer with my team again, I broke my leg within minutes of the first game I was on a breakaway to score. Three defenders landed on top of me tearing all the ligaments in my foot, fracturing the bone above my ankle. I had never broken anything in my life, I did not feel out of shape, but I was.
So much for making love that night. I was laid up in bed for months and it was extremely uncomfortable having to wear this 40lb plaster cast from hip-to-heel.
Sex was practically impossible. Even sleeping was incredibly uncomfortable. I found that my leg would fall off the bed in the middle of the night and my groin muscles would work overtime to hold the leg and cast off the floor while I was sleeping. I lay around in bed looking for comfortable positions to relax in. I could never find that secure position. I thought if there was a way to ‘lift’ my leg off the bed, (even just a small amount) it would be incredibly beneficial.
I literally (on crutches) hobbled down to the local medical supply store to purchase some sort of sling for my leg. I left empty-handed... annoyed that nobody had invented what I needed: a simple to use, easy to setup-at-home, bedroom device to keep my leg comfortably elevated.
An Idea… A Blow Torch…. And The Most Spectacular Sex Of My Life
I was dating a beautiful, spiritual woman, and I asked her candidly about women and how or what would make women orgasm better or more frequently or with greater vigor. We talked about different ideas, but she enlightened me that a womans clitoris is often NOT stimulated while making love. I immediately thought that it made sense and looked for a way to enhance the position of the body, the pelvis, and thus clitoris, to be positioned and controlled by the woman, not the man, during the sexual act and yet allow for more comfort at the same time. Nothing out there is designed for this simple feat. A light bulb went off in my head since I had the idea from the broken leg incident.
I called up my brother and told him to come over. We grabbed a blowtorch and went to work, creating my own personal sexual device. A few days later, we emerged with a makeshift “sling”. I tested it out that night for my leg and slept like a baby, but the very next night, something amazing happened…
After some awkward foreplay, (trying to be sexy, suave and romantic with a 40 lb plaster cast on your leg is like trying to tap-dance with cement shoes on), my girlfriend finally cracked. “Here”, she said, “Let’s try this”. With that said, she laid back on the swing of my homemade traction device and I slipped inside of her. From that moment on… my sex life had changed forever. As soon as we started making love, she started making sounds I’d never heard before. I had awakened the sexual tigress within her. We made love for hours that night, and I had a cast on!!!
Together we had figured out that the' traction device' had elevated her pelvis to the perfect angle for me to stimulate her clitoris. We had accidentally stumbled upon a mush more comfortable way to have sex... a much better way to have sex. Instead of awkwardly straining my head, neck, hands and hips trying to stimulate my girlfriend’s clitoris, I’d discovered a simple way to position our bodies and stimulate her clitoris and g-spot easily and comfortably. My head was swimming with the possibilities.
Now I had originally designed it for elevating the legs to control the pelvic positioning, but with later, stronger prototypes, we found that it enhanced making love in so many ways that it was truly revolutionary for the ways it allowed us all (short, fat, small, large, thin, weak, strong, pregnant, disabled, whatever) to make love with our partner. The Bonk'er enriches what we all love to do with the one we love to love, in ways we all love to make love. It is intimate and it is explosive, it is wahtever you want it to be, but it does make love better. And THAT is something that VERY FEW products can actually truly claim. Gay or straight, whatever, we all make love and we all need more excitement and style in our bedroom.
A few weeks later, my cast was removed and I once again had two working legs. But my “homemade traction” device never left the bedroom. The sex was just too damn good. Besides, if I had tried to remove the traction device my girlfriend would have been really upset.
My girlfriend told her best friend about my little creation… and the news spread like wildfire. It wasn’t long before I was receiving more and more requests for my invention… which I had dubbed “The Bonk’er” (for her).
I was born in England, London to be precise, to an English father and an American mother. When I was ten, after having my formal schooling in the British education system, I moved with my family to New England.
Bonk, is not a usual term in the states, but it does reflect a certain humor in the British colonies (Australia, New Zealand, etc...). So to use Bonk is my nod to my heritage since I still have family in England. To popularize the humorous term in the states I added the 'ER (for her) as an homage to women, showing that this was designed and developed initially for her pleasure. I have since designed another product initially designed for him, The Bonk'im. Continuing with that line of thinking and sexy fun, I named my brand of toys Bonkum, UM was a Latin for WE, so I decided to call the brand Bonkum for WE BONK, and of course called the website Bonkum.com.
So we trademarked the names, filed for patents on the Bonk'er and Bonk'im, setup our website, and now are receiving worldwide accolades for developing one of the most revolutionary new products that enhance the way we all make love.
Now we have The Bonk'er and Bonk'im available for you, here at Bonkum.com. Enjoy.
