Ok, let's be honest here. If I wanted to go out tonight and have sex, I could. I think if any of us really wanted to have sex tonight we could. I have some of those nosy friends who, after not seeing them for weeks or even months, will see me and say, "So, seeing anyone?" And the even nosier friends who want to know the extent I went with past guys...like it's any of their business. In a way it's girl-talk and with some I'll go there, but I hate when it gets that "Never Have I Ever" feel to it and all of a sudden what I do with a guy turns into something like a medical history. Where what I have and have not done with certain guys turns into normal and not normal and people try to say what "should" happen. I hate that! Like that recent poll where the majority of women said they sleep with a guy on the 3rd date? OK, the secondary results of that poll were, "NotCarrie is a prude." Whatever, I don't care. I decided a year or so ago to be way more private with that information** anyway. I don't need to rent out billboards to let the world know what I'm doing.*** I'm not in college anymore where I'm playing drinking games and pretending like I have in fact done some crazy sex-act outdoors involving watermelon and in December (Drink if you have!). If I do end up doing that (weird), I'm going to keep it to myself. (OK, maybe I'll tell you guys.)
But info on me isn't what we want on a Friday afternoon, is it? We want salaciousness. We want stories. We want to come back to work on Monday with stuff to talk about on gmail all day. I'm all over the place with this post today and the real reason I started it like I did is because of this chick who is all over the internet right now. Am I really supposed to believe she can't get laid? I find this ridiculous. I can easily count a handful of male friends who I could call up to have sex with me and I am confident at least 3 would and the other 2 wouldn't only because they might have girlfriends. I could go to a bar tonight and say to someone, "let's go bone" and it may take a few tries, but I'm sure I could find one. Hell, put an ad on Craigslist and you'll get responses within the hour.
Now, of course, this isn't the kind of sex people are looking for it. If it was, we'd all just be out slapping nasties all the time. The majority of us want the relationship, too. And no STDs. We want to to be attracted to someone and have the feeling be mutual. We want a lot more than sex. Sex is easy.
*A slight exaggeration.
**Said like Cami on LB.
**Haha, makes me laugh since I am, in fact, NotCarrie.
