"Sex Confessions" is a series featuring your naughtiest bedroom secrets and fantasies. Some will sound familiar, others may give you ideas, some will turn you on, and some are dark and twisted. You might want to sit down for this.
We all know how difficultt it can sometimes be to have sex in your own house when you have kids around. Some of us can get creative, but some of our kids are far too sneaky. Pauline and John* have three kids under 10, two dogs, and a cat. Someone always wants something. And naturally, Pauline and John really want each other. They have what may be the world's coolest solution: They go to a friend's house to have sex. It's a unique arrangement but it sure beats spending money on a hotel room. I'll let Pauline explain.
A couple of years ago, I was talking to my friend Amanda* about how it's hard for John and I to be intimate in the house. We do have our quickies, but we also like to have more than that sometimes, but with a full house it's not so easy. Amanda doesn't have any kids and she and her boyfriend don't live together. Amanda offered up her house, by arrangement, so we could have a sexual escapade for as long as we have the babysitter.
How it works is about once a month, I ask Amanda if a certain date works for her. She makes plans to be at her boyfriend's house and I make plans with the babysitter. John and I usually get take-out that night, bring it to Amanda's and have a romantic evening with just the two of us in the comfort of her home. We get to have sex for longer than 5 minutes and everyone is happy! Especially me. Quickies are fun but I cannot live on quickies alone.
Weird? Maybe. When I told another friend about it, she was sort of repulsed. I felt kind of embarrassed and assured her I wasn't telling her so I could have another sex den in her house. I avoided telling anyone else. It was actually Amanda's idea. And we've been friends forever. I'd do the same for her ... if I could. It's not like we are kids and making a terrible mess in her house. If we do, we clean up of course. It definitely beats the cost of a hotel for a few hours -- and is proof that good friends will help you out when you're in need.
