Most of us use accoutrements to spice up our sex lives, whether it’s a sex life you have with yourself (and your hand) or a significant other. Well, I have a lot of accoutrements: costumes (lingerie), dildos, vibrators, cock rings, porn. You name it, I’ve got it. I even have a fuck ramp; two in … Continue reading Sex Toy, or Child’s Toy? Both…Maybe?
Men like to believe that they are “all that” in bed, and as women, it’s up to us to convince them they are, at least if we are married to them or want to keep them around. (We can always make suggestions for improvement to help them get there, but that’s another blog entry.) One … Continue reading The Brutal Truth
Kimberly’s husband George is an incredibly high-functioning man in his chosen profession. He comands respect, and people like him. He is polite and knows how to finesse situations so people on both ends of a situatoin are happy. But when he is with his family, George is not a great decision maker. (He resembles my husband … Continue reading The Full Monty in Amsterdam
Matthew has a colorful sense of humor. It’s one of the things that drew me to him. He is a big guy at 6’7” and is kind of quiet until you get to know him well. But then, well then it’s no holds barred. That’s why some of the things he does come as such … Continue reading Gift Giving, Matthew Style
We’ve all said it before: men think with their dicks. It’s how they’re wired. And while we hope they will overcome this—either by will or by training—nature usually wins out. Classic example: Savannah and Ali were on spring break together at the beach. Every day they hauled snacks, floaties, chairs, and sun screen to and … Continue reading The Brain Below the Waist
One of my favorite places to meet my girlfriends for a quick lunch or a drink after dinner is a local hangout about a mile from my house. One evening on a weeknight, Ali and I sat at the bar. We talked about our husbands, our relationships, and life in general. There were four other … Continue reading Meeting My State Representative
Girls Trips! One of the great things about my girlfriends is that we know how to have a great time, and we all accept the quirks in each other that allow us to let loose and enjoy ourselves. (See Blog #30: Hibiscus) There is no judgement, no talking behind backs, no bitchiness. There is acceptance … Continue reading Overboard!
One of the things that happens to your body when you are pregnant is that you tinkle more easily while that sweet baby sits on your bladder. That’s common sense: a heavy object sitting on a lighter, thinner object will squish the lighter one…of something like that. But the problem persists even after you have … Continue reading A Little Tee Tee Here and There
Every once in a while, a stranger will give you an appreciative glance, wave at you from a passing car, honk at you, or give you some indication that you are still appealing to men other than your husband. We all need these little ego boosts. It’s good to know we are still attractive to … Continue reading Getting Hit On…or Maybe Stalked?
At the peak of our sex life, Matthew and I had sex on average eight times a week. That’s on average. Sometimes it was more. A lot more. Eventually it slowed to five or six times a week. With babies in the mix, I was often not in the mood, but I still did the … Continue reading Code Word: Me
