I’m a 39 (weeks away from 40) year old women who enjoys a healthy sex life and not with a single, long-term partner. I don’t think of myself as promiscuous. But the fact that I have anywhere from 2-5 new partners a year + a fb that I’ve been seeing for years (who I don’t see when I’m in a relationship) would probably make me eligible for slut rating by many folks.
Whatever. Everything is a matter of perspective.
That said, I get very uptight when it comes to some things. Well, one thing = condoms. You could call me fanatical. I always have them in my apartment, and consider them a non-negotiable. Oh, and this isn’t about birth control. I have that covered.
Which is why I kinda freak out when – a) I’m in a new relationship and the guy tries, over and over, to get around using them and b) when I keep reading posts/articles about people just not using them.
Seriously people? I don’t get it. I know they make things less pleasurable. I get it. I have actually had sex without a condom(when I was in a committed relationship). I know the difference. But I’m willing to forego that extra level of good because I know that, well, I’m a 39 year old (almost 40) sexually active woman who has been sexually active for a couple of decades now and I’m still very healthy, thank you. I haven’t collected a bunch of diseases (some of which might be life-threatening and untreatable). And yeah, I know condoms don’t prevent everything, they just make things safer. Safer is better than nuthin.
OK. Enough with my rant/lecture (sorry, read something late last night that really annoyed the hell out of me). Here’s the poll. What about you good people out there in the blogosphere?
