Tie Your Mother Down
Mothers and sex. Mothers and desire. Mothers and erotica.
EEW EWW EWW EWW EWW!
I remember the first time my mother asked me about my sex life. I was taking a bath at her house, but that didn’t stop her from barging in and sitting on her throne. “So, what’s sex like, with your husband?”
“EEWWWW! I don’t want to talk about that with you!!” I dunked my head underwater and held my breath, hoping she would go away. But when my lungs threatened to take in soapy bathwater, I surfaced to find her still sitting there.
I couldn’t exit that bathroom fast enough. My parents were never very demonstrative when I was growing up. Why did she require me to fill her in on my antics between the sheets?
Maybe it was her attempt to be my friend, to have an adult relationship with her child, something I didn’t even know I wanted at the time. I was twenty-five. Stuck in a marriage that was escalating toward hell. A virgin when I married who’d never really gotten laid.
And I didn’t want to discuss ANY of THAT with my mother. Not so much because I was embarrassed about my pathetic excuse for a sex life. I was petrified she’d try to tell me all about her ups and downs in the bedroom. Her fantasies. The best orgasm she’d ever had. Maybe even with someone other than Dad.
EEWWWWWWWWW!!!!! Either way. EEWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!
As my unluck would have it, she found me again. On the toilet. Years later. In the throes of our all-out war to determine the Andra I was meant to be.
To be continued tomorrow…..
