Indie’s answers to TMI Tuesday…
1. Is your sex life more fantasy or reality?
That’s a nonsensical question for me. The last time I had penetrative and oral sex with a human being was around 11 months ago when I celebrated my birthday with a session with sex worker John Oh. Prior to that my libido had been non-existent for around 3 and half years as I negotiated my live-in role as carer to my elderly mum, so the idea of reality / fantasy was immaterial.
As is well documented on my blog my sex drive returned with a vengeance after mum passed away, but apart from the session with John I’ve been reliant on my collection of sex toys for pleasure since that time. From zero masturbation to almost-every-day in twelve months is pretty impressive in my book, and now counts as a satisfying sexual reality for me, especially since I rarely masturbated during any of my relationships. And from no sex toys to around about 45 is also pretty impressive for me.
So my sex life as defined here is definitely a reality, and a pretty fabulous one at that. I no longer define sex as necessarily involving physical interaction with another person. In it’s current form my sex life also involves fantasy, in that I now routinely read and fantasize during masturbation. Not only that but my sexual activity is also often stimulated by reading and fantasizing. Alongside this I continue to fantasize about and hope for a time when I will have sexual encounters with another human being, the interaction being a vital aspect of sex I do miss sometimes.
While I’m sure there will be opportunities to have casual sex with others sometime in the future, in the last six months or so I have become greatly emotionally and erotically attached to a man who has stated on more than one occasion that he has no intention of having sex with me. It’s taken me a while to accept this, but I do see the wisdom (but also the fear) in his position. However to my joy we have made a form of commitment to each other and are becoming increasingly, deliciously intimate in other ways.This arrangement does not preclude me (or him for that matter) having sex with other people should we choose to do so.
So of course I fantasize about him, I enjoy the regular hugging and incidental physical contact we have immensely and I frequently but not exclusively masturbate while thinking of him. Every development in our emerging companionship brings new and sometimes wonderfully unexpected information and erotic possibilities to light, which then become available for my sessions. We are on a journey together now, and the path could take us in any number of directions in the future.
Therefore my reality involves fantasy, and my fantasies are woven through my reality – there is no separation.
2. If you could hook-up with a past lover (with no repercussions or regret), who would it be and why? (No need to use real names just briefly describe the person and their relationship to you.)
Ryan the younger lover I’ve written about extensively on my blog. Now I have more experience and understanding of kink is I’d like to take up where we left off our youthful explorations.
3. You can only indulge in one of the following sex acts for the rest of your life, which would you choose to enjoy?
a. oral sex, only giving
c. oral sex, only receiving
d. mutual masturbation
Masturbation, mutual or otherwise – see my answers above.
4. With each lover do you pay attention to what they want or do you have a repertoire that you stick to when having sex?
It’s become an increasingly broad repertoire, but it’s about the person not the act.
Also the changes in my thinking since I’ve acknowledged my kinkiness and formed the deep emotional and erotic bond I have with my companion would be sufficient for me to give most things a go where he was concerned if it ever came to that. However while I suspect he could introduce me hitherto undreamt of realities my imagination is doing a damn fine job of taking me places we might never go…
5. Do you initiate sex for healthful benefits, e.g., to sleep better or relieve pain?
I masturbate to relieve anxiety and improve my mental state. But pleasure is also about health as well…
Bonus: Do you understand the clitoris?
Now that I’ve taken charge of my own pleasure – I understand her a lot better than I used to. But she is given to surprising me on occasion.
