So I’m sitting in a movie theatre on Sunday afternoon with my son and his girlfriend watching No Strings Attached with Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher. Now, I am an observer, so I’m sitting there enjoying this very sexy movie while at the same time, watching those around me for reactions. I have this theory. Everyone loves sex on some level. But, not everyone admits it. Why?
There were three women sitting in front of us that were pretty ordinary, I guessed one of them to be the mother and the other two daughters. Average looking, not especially attractive or ugly. They never laughed once throughout the entire movie. Granted, given the relationship, embarrassment probably played a major role in their silence. Of course the three of us were laughing out loud all through the movie. It was very funny and very modern. But we are very open about our sexuality.
I was a single mom for a while raising two teenage boys. When they were in high school, I preached condoms. Still do! I’m a modern mom. I remember the sexual curiosity of being a teenager and I don’t think that ever changes. When I was a teenager, girls got pregnant in high school and still do, girls got reputations in high school and still do, and boys could have sex with anyone and everyone and they were studs. So I’m aware of the pressures and curiosities of the young. Abstinence is ideal and waiting until you’re married is definitely the way to go, in a perfect world. Our world was not perfect and I was raising two handsome young men. I knew they would have sex and I wanted them to be prepared. And safe!
As I sat there watching the women in front of me I wondered what was going through their minds. Were they embarrassed? Were they turned on? Then it dawned on me, they sat through the entire movie. If they were embarrassed why didn’t they leave? The answer was simple, they liked it!
I let a friend read my manuscript for PESCADERO CREEK and her only comment was, “Boy, there’s a lot of sex in there!” Then quickly asked, “When is the next one coming out?” Come on! Admit it, we like it. How many of you will stop if while flipping through the channels you see a couple making out or clothes coming off?
Millions of people watch porn movies and read porn magazines. Drive down any interstate and around most of the larger cities, you will find an adult novelty store. Prostitution is still the oldest profession. Somebody is watching, somebody is reading, someone is shopping, someone is. . . I’m not condoning nor condemning. It’s not my place. I’m just trying to make a point.
On some level, we all need sex. We all need to be loved and the physical aspect of love is sex. We can get it in small amounts like the R rated movie we watched on Sunday. Or we can get the stimulation we crave from the porn movies and magazines. If you’re lucky, you’re getting all you need from your significant other. Which is how is was meant to be. But if you need to add a little spice or get a jump-start, there are options. Let me make myself clear on this one, I’m talking about movies, toys and magazines. Personally, I don’t think prostitution holds a place in a marriage.
For those of you who were brave enough to read this post even after the warning, here is a little something to light your fire. Even Rob McAllister needs to step up his game once in a while. Here’s a short segment from UNDERCOVER the second novel in the PESCADERO CREEK series.
Rob pulled the pink nightgown over her head and turned her over on her stomach. He started to kiss her back while he moved her hair out of his way. He massaged her back from her shoulders down to her feet then rubbed her through her panties before he slid them down her long legs. After he gently moved her legs apart, he moved on top of her.
“Rob, what are you doing?”
“What do you think I’m doing?” he whispered in her ear as he moved on top of her again slipping himself inside of her.
She moaned softly beneath him as he started to move within her. He kissed her neck and back as he held her arms down. His movements grew quicker and harder causing her to cry out. Rob froze, “Am I hurting you?” he asked.
She kept her head down, “No!” she laughed.
That was all he needed to continue. Once again he began to move in her causing her to orgasm over and over. When he finished, he collapsed on top of her.
“That was new,” she finally said, lifting her head.
