"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.
Ever have a suspicion about something and you just know you are right? And you don't want to be right? That's what's happening with Jennifer* who suspects her husband Jim* is out getting happy endings every time he get a massage. Which is often. Because he has a bad back. Yeah, right (wink). Okay, Jim really does have back issues and massage is recommended to him by his doctor but Jennifer is a bit concerned about how her husband of 10 years acts when he gets home from the massage parlor. She should explain this one.
Jim is a great dad to our two sons. He's a great husband to me. And he's a great lover. Except when he gets massages. About six months ago his doctor told him that therapeutic massage once every couple of weeks would really help him keep his alignment and pay attention to his core and help work out the kinks in his back that cause him pain. Massage, along with some exercises and a better diet. Jim was really into following all of the doctors orders at first but now the only thing he does is go to get a massage ... and he's upped it to once a week.
Okay, whatever, right? Sure. But I was annoyed because I want his back to be okay. I don't want him to have pain. But he's so weird about this massage stuff that I can't help but think something is up. He's sort of secretive about it. He doesn't tell me when he's going to go. (Though it's usually Wednesday or Thursday.) And when he does go, he refuses to have sex with me on that night. And he comes home and takes a shower right away. What is up with that?
I asked him and he basically told me that I had a screw loose but I don't think I do. I KNOW not all massage parlors do the happy ending thing and I KNOW it's kind of an old school way of thinking that this could even be happening. But the signs are there. I wouldn't even be mad if he was getting happy endings. I'm just mad he's not telling me ... if he is. I'm not sure how to talk to him about this some more.
What do you think Jennifer should do? Do you think her husband is really getting a happy ending?
