I had a video for today, but changed it to private view after reconsideration. (It was public for a few hours this morning, so some of you might have caught it.) I said in my commentary that I’m a bit of a prude and I guess I’m more of one that I thought. The video, which was a bit by the comedian April Macie, was about a sexual act of a very intimate nature and it made me squeamish. I might be showing my age, but I think it has more to do with my personality: I’m just not that comfortable talking about sex.
I can hear about it, though. I listen to my daughters talk about sex, and although they sometimes shock me, they never disgust me. And I defend their right to talk freely about their sex lives. I just don’t feel comfortable talking freely about mine. I’m sure that is a relief to many of you.
That doesn’t mean that I’ll never write about my sexual experiences. It just won’t be explicit. That may be disappointing to other readers. Sorry.
I think it’s important to talk about sex with our children and our sex partners. Sometimes to our doctors as well. (Although, I’ve found from experience that most doctors aren’t any more comfortable talking about sex than I am.) I have found YouTube to be a source of frank but important information–if you can get past all the sex shows that are inevitable in a venue such as that.
One thing I have learned about sex talk is that it’s almost always educational–at least for me. Age doesn’t mean that you know all that there is to know about sex (whether you’re young and consider yourself hip or “old” and consider yourself experienced). I myself learned more about the G-spot the other day on YouTube and it was really informative. Now all I have to do is share it with my husband.
Oh, and for those of you who would like to see the raunchy video I had for today, just drop me a line and I’ll send you a link–or you can look it up on College Humor under “Funny Women” or “April Macie.”
