Lovers and Other Stangers

Jenna, over at Raspberry Ripples, was tagged for The Sunshine Blogger Award by a friend of hers. I was among a whole host of other bloggers that Jenna tagged, and while my blog is an award-free blog, it’s definitely not a question free blog. So here are her, shall we say, adult-oriented questions, along with my answers (or, in some cases, non answers). Ready?

1. Do you keep in touch with any of your ex-lovers?

My wife reads my blog, so I’m pleading the fifth.

2. Do you remember losing your virginity with glee or with a cringe?

A little of both. Glee because I lost my virginity. A cringe because I had no clue what I was doing. I wrote a post about what led up to it here.

3. Do you think online dating or blind-dates arranged through friends works better?

Back in the day when I was dating, online dating sites — or online anything, for that matter — didn’t exist. And since I met the girl who eventually became my wife on a blind date fix-up, I’ll go with that one.

4. Is there “one that got away” in your life? Do you think about them?

There were several that got away, but I’m happy with the one that didn’t, so we’ll leave it at that.

5. Do you have an outfit that makes you feel super-sexy?

Yeah, right. At my age, a t-shirt and sweat pants is about the sexiest outfit I’ve got going.

6. Do you have a favorite erotica book or movie?

Actually, many years ago I tried my hand at writing my own erotic stories and, to this day, they are my favorite erotic tales.

7. What do you find romantic?

Sitting cuddled up with my wife in front of a blazing fire on a chilly winter night sipping wine.

8. What do you do when you are feeling sad, stressed, lonely, or anxious?

The good news is that I rarely feel sad, stressed, or lonely. I do feel quite anxious about Donald Trump and what will happen to my country after Tuesday’s presidential election. How do I cope with that anxiety? I consume a cannabis-infused marshmallow. Works every time.

9. What’s your happiest, favorite real life sex memory/experience?

When my wife and I were dating, we would occasionally take quaaludes before having sex. One night we each took three ludes and made love five times before dawn. We were both quite sated, albeit exhausted, the next day.

10. How easy do you find it to have open, honest conversations with your partner about sex, about your preferences, or your limits?

It’s easy. Once a king, always a king. Once a night is enough.

11. What would be your perfect fantasy date night?

See my answer to number 7.

Does anyone else want to have a go at answering Jenna’s questions? If so, consider yourself tagged.

    Three quaaludes in one night, wow you really were a party guy. The most I ever took was one quaalude in a night, but of course I topped that off with vodka, pot and methadone.

    I’m going to answer number four; probably not in the spirit of it’s asking. Well, I can answer it in a straight-forward manner as to what this usually means first: no. And yet…

    I do think about the first guy who asked me on “a date”* — to a dance. Some people consider a school dance a date, and some don’t. My mom told me I wasn’t going to dances in the context of informing me I wouldn’t date until I was sixteen. As I was only thirteen when I started high school, I had to say no. (This is more of a yearning for childhood or innocence instead of a controlling and warped mother. He was also a freshman. We learned, later, that he was gay.)

    * This doesn’t count what I consider the stupid behaviors seen as normal at church camp. I mean, what the freak? My mom sent me to something similar to scouts (beginning with middle school) run by church organizations. They had a yearly banquet with a funny movie because the leaders were against dancing. But then there was camp.🙄 [One year, there was a girl confusingly (because she seemed barely older than the kids) called a camp counselor who got physically involved with a boy near my age.]

    “… spirit of it’s asking.” Yeah, that is an “autocorrect” mistake. It should be, as I typed in, spirit of its — otherwise something like the spirit in which it’s asked.

    The following answer is more what is being sought after. This time in response to number nine:

    Waking to something like this…

    Wondrous Stories

    It wasn’t this song or album or group, but you get the idea. Yes, I’d come across a hippie (or hippie-adjacent person).
