I’ve been pretty absent between an express course this summer and the boy being stressed out prepping for a big interview (which it looks like he’s got the job, but still waiting on the official confirmation. Just means big changes are coming down the line)
So here’s the Food for Thought Friday!
Do you agree with the assertion men and woman cannot be friends because sooner or later one person wants to have sex with the other?
No! I’m friends with several men, and have had a few friends of a male persuasion (who are no longer in my life for a myriad of non-sex reasons), and I’ve only slept with…..three of them? The boy being one, and my high school sweetheart being another. The third we don’t talk about. Granted, I’ve never really asked around if they wanted to sleep with me, but one of them is married (I was the maid of honor for his wife) and the other is in a relationship with a lovely woman so I feel like they don’t???
Have you ever had a friendship where one person did want to have sex with the other? Who was the “guilty” party, you or the other person. Was it reciprocated?
Ahem. Well. The boy was the guilty party here. And we did sleep together as friends, something I think I’ve mentioned before. So yes, reciprocated. Some of the most fun sex I had had up to that point, too.
If you answered yes to the last part, did “it” happen?
“Yes” or “No” were there any consequences, good or bad? Did the friendship survive?
Well I then proceeded to date a terrible other guy for two years, and the friendship survived that. The high school sweetheart friendship didn’t survive once we broke up, not really, at least in the manner it had been. He also became very Catholic. And the third guy…well…the friendship didn’t survive, not necessarily because of the sleeping together, but he did then feel entitled to touch me even when I didn’t consent to it after that. Soooooooooo. Yeah. Consent once does not equal consent all the time.
