My HOT Date

Can you hear the porn music in the background? Hubby and I found ourselves alone last night with the kiddos spending the night with my sister. I slipped on this little black lacy number before we went out to dinner. I was feelin' it - if you know what I mean. We got up to leave and I REALLY felt it. On the right side. Starting in my lower back, going all the way down my right leg. Yep. I threw my back out shoveling snow earlier in the day.

So when we got home, obviously hanky panky was out of the question. I could barely sit, much less sit on... well... let's leave that to the imagination. So instead of having a hot date with hubby, I had a hot date with Mr. Heating Pad. And here I am more than 24 hours later, still lovin' it up with the heating pad.

But let's talk about hot dates with your spouse for a moment. Now, with small children, usually you only get a moment alone, right? So it's got to be fast, and absolutely little to no foreplay. But when you are alone, kids otherwise occupied, why can't there be romance? Do we get so caught up in the day to day menagerie, that we forget that romance can still exist? Or do we just forget about romance?

Every so often, it would be nice to have a little sweet talk, some gentle, soft kisses. But now, with kids and work, and thrown out backs, we are lucky if a breast gets touched before the panties come off. (Exactly the reason why we should all buy stock in Johnson & Johnson. After all, they are the makers of KY.)

It's not middle aged vaginal dryness! It's our husbands and significant others wanting immediate sex without the proper foreplay! When we were in our early twenties and had our way with men, we could take as much time as we needed, and our men saw that as "teasing" before the big deal. Now, foreplay is seen as the deal breaker!!!

So, the moral of the story is this - if you want foreplay, start by yourself a half an hour before your husband comes to bed! Oh, and don't forget the KY!
