We can talk about whatever we want in this house, like no topic is off limits, even the ones that make me internally cringe. A couple of years ago Moonshine asked me my body count, aka how many people I’d slept with in my life and I said, Two. Two whole people, and then we laughed and laughed and laughed and she said, No, really.
So I got out the abacus and started thinking back. Hmmm, how many people have I slept with in my whole life. Well, I am 45 and I didn’t get married until I was 22 and I haven’t dated since then so it couldn’t be THAT many people. There was definitely the first guy and definitely my ex-husband and maybe a guy or two sprinkled in.
I just binge watched six seasons of Sex and the City and I’m no Samantha, nor was I in my earlier days, but those women slept with a lot of people on that show. I wonder what the average is for middle America. I did grow up in the bible belt.
On this day I was having a conversation with Tenderheart who wasn’t at the first conversation when I had to take my shoes off and use my toes to count (maybe I’m kidding), and out of the blue she said, I think you had a lot of sex when you were younger. Just out of the blue. And I said, your point… And she said, I think you could probably never have sex again and be okay because maybe you’ve already had all your sex.
Well, I guess that’s one way to look at it. I thought the reason I wasn’t having sex was because of my love for cheesecake and the fact that I think my uterus is falling out. But maybe I had all my sex I’m going to have and I’m just waiting for the old folk’s home to tear it up again. Although I think nursing homes have one of the highest rates of STD/STIs so I’m not down for that. But I have to be honest, sometimes I think I might want to date. I might want to have someone to go to the movies and hang out with and cuddle, but it just seems like a lot of work. My ex cured me for wanting to get married again and maybe I’m not very good at dating. Are there any good ones left?
