he told he had never had great sex
and I nodded
I mean, you know, in an internet fashion
and then I thought of this other friend of mine, and what she's always saying,
"it can always be better"
"what do you mean"
"well, I mean, he could roll over and say I have tickets to paris, it can always better"
but I still didn't understand
the first time I had it I thought it was great
even though a pool cue was at my back and my boyfriend almost accidentally punched me when trying to remove it and his brother knocked on the door and I kept waiting for it not to feel cramped and awkward, it was great
even that time that I was in a car and a cop told me to to stop and there was all this negotiation involving a ticket and a hard time
it was great
it was always greater -and then I'd know this whole new level, and then it was greater
because it was sex
yes, it can be awkward and uncomfortable and bad and worse
it can be unfair and unpleasant
but to me, it was still, always great
I mean, really
sex makes me feel like I should get down on my knees and thank anyone and everyone for letting me have sex
hey gawd, awesome, thanks for the sex
I felt like I should be grateful for every man
even now, it's like
HOLY SHIT I'M NAKED AND HAVING SEX
and to be clear
I'm a girl
even, kinda, a hot girl, so sex isn't the mount everest of social achievements. it's pretty much blink and flash some clevage to achieve horizontal status
but still, it's sex
and I love it, for what it is. another person there
NO it's great
and sometimes it's greater
it's ecstacy and the quietest quiet and the roofs shaking and suddently earthquakes and famine and floods and my bills become irrelevant and what did I just say
JUST SAY OUTLOUD?
you've never had great sex?
you are not trying
sex. is. a gift.
love it like you love life and you'll know what it's like to tune out the pain and the discomfort and the details and the dryness and the oh. excuse.me.is that your.arm and the when? and just love.it.
because it's sex
love it or leave it man
leave it to those of us who know when to recognize a wholly holy deity in our presence and a respite from all that is dirty and deadening from the day
