No charge ever sex friends
At a dinner party last year at the home of my friend Rosemary, a woman called Annabel chatted animatedly to me all evening and called the next day to invite me for lunch.
When I asked if Rosemary would be there, she said no and it soon became apparent that what Annabel really wanted was for me to get her teenage daughter a job in newspapers.
” But then I found that both their husbands had been there as well, and as I am single I understood better.
They also each have a small baby, so they do baby shopping.
If I do find a way of quantifying what I think to be the right balance between those two extremes, I will write a new post about it.
In addition, I have a couple posts that make the good points without making the questionable ones. You can read the original (though annotated) text of the post here: Never Say No to Sex Related Posts 1.
It’s funny how, where friends are concerned, women, even in their 40s or 50s, can revert back to playground behaviour.
‘Cavewomen had to rely on a close circle of friends for their very survival and if you were left out of that group, then you could die.
At the weekend I happened upon two friends of mine in a restaurant.
Nothing unusual in that, except that when they saw me, they both went bright red.
At a fundamental level, I think this post was telling women that they should be pushovers - or at least implying it.
Telling women to support their husbands or boyfriends sexually is good advice for girls who already had strong personal boundaries, but it is questionable advice for a girl with weak boundaries. I am not completely sure that it is a good thing for sex to be 100 % available to a man, even in the context of a relationship.
