Now, don’t get me wrong, I am excited about 50 Shades Of Grey. After all, like every other female on the planet, I have a copy. I am happy for EL James and the tremendous success she has achieved for penning these girly pornos. I am grateful to know that millions of (married) women (and gay men) have experienced more frequent and satisfying self-induced orgasms lately because of it!
What makes me upset about it? Well, I want to know why it took a salacious sex story to get us excited about doing the deed. Were our throb buttons turned off? Have we become unable to see sexiness in our partners, surroundings and experiences?? Did we lose our way on the path to pure ecstasy???
I have had some pretty satisfying sexual relationships in the past. When I’m ready to get down to business with a nice, normal boyfriend (stop laughing!), I’m going to ensure that we go at it night and day. Like I used to. I will never take steamy sex sessions for granted ever again.
Why are we having to read about great sex? Why aren’t we out there having it?? Why am I not out there having it???
I am vowing to myself to make the most of my sex life going forward. I have lifted the man ban, gone off mancation and promise that I’m going to date like the devil (but I won’t date the devil. No, not again…) from now on. I hope, sometime in the near future, that you will be able to pique your interest in reading a post that might be called something like ‘50 Shades Of Hot Throbbing Pinky Fuschia Silky Orchid.’ Or something like that!
