Amy was kind of right about one thing: sex is overrated. At least in the sense that it's some mystical joining of body and spirit where two people become one and their love transforms space and time and can slay dragons and bring down evil empires. Yes, it can be a wonderful physical expression of deep, passionate love, but it's also a simple fact of our biology, a bodily function like flushing waste and sneezing. It just happens to (usually, and I'm sure debateably for some) feel a little better than those. "Meaningless sex" isn't really meaningless. It can be an expression of yourself as a naturally sexual being. And just because you do not share a profound emotional connection with someone you're having sex with doesn't mean that it can't be an extraordinarily rewarding and in a way loving experience. It's a celebration of having a body, being able to experience physical sensations (mostly pleasure, but for some pain as well), being alive, and having the potential to create new life. It's possible to have some of the best sex of your life with someone you have almost nothing in common with because you only are compatible in a physical way, much like you have friends who you can share musical tastes with but maybe can't discuss your inner feelings, and vice versa. There's so much narrow mindedness and negativity floating around about sex that it's always good to remember it is a multifaceted endeavor with many purposes and significances and that we should all actively fight to promote a more sex positive attitude for our own collective health. f
tl;dr version: It's really not that big of a deal, so enjoy yourself before you're dead and can't jizz any more, for fuck's sake.
But also, you're your own person and have your own issues and it's none of our business how you conduct your sex life, we're just trying to provide some outside perspective.
Amy, I'm certain that your kids combined with yours and your husbands insecurities are the only things saving your marriage.
amy and I are on the same page. I'm glad at least one person gets where I'm coming from.

2) You assume that she will want to continue practicing with you after you just gave her the single worst romp in the sack she's had since she was date-raped at a high school kegger at 17. This is not an assumption you should make. Women of a certain age have expectations, and that you not be completely feeble in bed is generally one.
3) the vast majority of attractive women who think that this is cute or endearing (Amy not withstanding...I've read her Dog story, not the best person to have in your corner) have generally long since been married. They tend to get married early because they wanted to wait, and their heaving loins made that difficult. So good luck finding that perfect flower.
Talk about overhyping something. You're going to look back when you're 40 (assuming you've lost it by then...questionable) and wonder why the hell you didn't spend all this time having hot, hot sex with strangers, friends, and girlfriends alike.
Icey, as your original question was this:
I don't have a "dog story." When I was a virgin, a long time ago, I used to have sexual fantasies about dogs. It was just fantasies. I never did anything with dogs, nor wanted to do anything with dogs. I'm sure many people fantasize about things they would never ever do in reality. That is why they are fantasies. I also use to fantasize about incest, other people's incest, not about people in my own family. I don't think about those anymore.
Phew, there's so much I want to discuss!
And what happened with the girl? I thought you liked her? What's physically wrong with her? Does she have an unsightly boil on her forehead or something? She can't be unattractive. It kinda sounds like you're approaching this from a place of nervousness, like Tommy suggested; just see what happens at the show. Also, you've hung out once; maybe the way she looks changed in your head with your nervousness. I bet the next time you see her you'll think she's the most beautiful, precious flower in the world.
Oh, and that date went well the other night. I think those weird texts I was reading into was just him being awkward/nervous. I had a really good time and he's a really cool dude and I'm excited to hang out with him again this week. That's all I'll really say because I don't want to spoil anything. (Except, I will say that DUDE IS TALL. Like, has to be at least 6'7" or 6'8", if not taller. I seriously come up to his ribcage.)
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but chains and whips excite me
Also you guys obviously don't understand where I'm coming from but you could at least try to instead of trying to find every angle at which to attack my beliefs.
