Click me all night long....

Click me all night long....

Exploring Intimacy regular, Diva, tells it like it is in her guide to hooking up online.

 

“Picture it… Sicily…1912… a beautiful young peasant girl with clear olive skin meets an exciting but penniless Spanish artist. There’s an instant attraction.” …oh wait… this isn’t The Golden Girls. This is 2008 in America… a world of sexual confusion and provocative behavior.

I freakin’ wish it was that easy to meet someone decent and feel some fireworks. Hell, at this point in my life I would settle for a spark! Just one spark; I’m not greedy. But until that day comes, I will continue to take risks and enjoy the internet because lets face it… how can you really meet someone at a bar and expect to have really intriguing and/or stimulating conversation? And by stimulating, I don’t mean a conversation about penis-in-vagina happenings (or penis-in-the-ass happenings if you fancy that). And by stimulating, I don’t mean planning a rendezvous in a car in the bar parking lot where you can participate in some fellatio situations. And by stimulating, I definitely do NOT mean planning an orgy in the back room of the bar or in the bathroom.

CraigsList HQ in Cali

CraigsList HQ in Cali

In an article quickly becoming famous on the net, two middle aged women share their adventures of meeting and enjoying many, many men off Craigslist. For those not familiar, Craigslist is a free online classifieds service where people find jobs, cheap used stuff, and each other. Craigslist is probably the most famous for the latter of those three, with popular and free personals that have sections ranging from the marriage minded to the quick & dirty. This article is a long one, my dear readers, but worth the time. Ana and Lily, who originally published their piece in the East Bay Press, may have moved quickly with their men but they take their sweet time with us. Reading their article gave me quite a bit to chew on and consider. They’re shameless and fun ladies, from the sound of it, with solid heads on their shoulders. I also suggest this read for those hoping to get more out of their CL posts; many suggestions are offered for men seeking partners. Ana and Lily also do a delightful job of demonstrating the delicious sexuality that women possess in mid-life, as well as the power of sex-positive friendships. While some blogs have used their article to demonstrate that Craigslist is a rather strange and undesirable place to find partners, I suggest that it is only representative of the world in general. Places with no cover charge draw a broad mix of people, and although you may sometimes get more than you pay for, much of the time you won’t. Is it worth it? For them it was, and one is still enjoying herself on CL, from the sounds of it.

LolCat Finds A Blue Pill

LolCat Finds A Blue Pill

Is this sex positive news? Eh, not the way it is reported but that’s usually the case with the news I dig through. It is fascinating to me, though, so up it goes. The Independent, a newspaper out of Ireland, is reporting an interesting sexual reversal of genders. Young women with strong expectations for nearly-immediate casual sex have increased performance pressure on their male mates to the point that they are seeking Viagra in record numbers.
