If you've been reading the ongoing journey of this penguin into all things once forbidden, you know that the world of casual sex is still fairly new to me. But it's becoming old pretty fast.

Now, I'm not seasoned by any means, but I'm noticing something emerging here that I would think is probably pretty common. In a deep analysis (is there any other kind?) of my motivations for certain trysts, I'm realizing that my need for touch sometimes clouds my rational thinking. I seek out a fuck, when really, I should just go get a massage.

So, word to my roomie and friends, seeing as my birthday is coming round in a few weeks, I think a spa gift certificate would be welcome. Nugde, nudge, wink, wink.

I totally understand that. I came from a BAD marriage to a fundamentalist wife who got more fundamental with time...except for that part about obeying the husband. ;) I was going the opposite direction, of course. The last seven years of our time together were totally sexless.

I came out of that marriage thinking I needed to never connect with anyone again, but have lots of sex.

Didn't work out that way. I can't sleep with someone I don't like. Can't sleep twice with someone I don't really respect. I was supposed to feel odd because of that, but I had learned through the fire and decided that since 90% of the world population is a waste of skin, I didn't have to worry about their opinion.

Life is much easier without a god and without the need for the approval of strangers.

Keep looking for love I say. You have to open a lot of oysters to find a pearl!

I hear ya flonk. I've never been able to be with someone I didn't respect. And as you say, once the respect is gone, it's a done deal.

Sex is a funny thing. It seems to me we have sex for some pretty odd reasons sometimes. Most of which have nothing to do with our partner. What's that saying..."I love you and it has nothing to do with you."

Thanks ged. Can't say I'm looking for love at the moment. But dammit, it sure feels like it's lookin' for me. More like stalking. Stupid cupid with his damn bow and arrow.

We're also the only species that eats or drinks when not hungry/thirsty!

More beer, ma'dam?
