The one wherein I actually use the expression "naughty bedroom fun time"...

I think I've been pretty blessed in this life with the friends I've got.  I've still got a good group of high school friends, as well as others I've gathered along the way.  I've collected more than I've lost, so I think that means I'm doing better than some.

But if there's one type of friend I highly recommend everyone get themselves one of, it's the "Telling Tales Of Sexual Misadventures" friend.

Those of you who already have one of these delightful creatures in your life will know exactly what I'm talking about.  This is the friend who calls you up at 10 pm and asks if you think she'll seem slutty if she goes and has drinks with a guy she met online half an hour ago.  She's the one who tells you, in vivid detail, all about the sexual prowess (or lack thereof) of the gentlemen callers she's entertained.

Of course this goes both ways.  She listens to your rambling stories about "naughty bedroom fun time" and listens with delight and only a little shock as you tell her all about that thing you tried with that guy on the weekend and how it made his toes curl and that she really should go buy herself one of those gloves with the...

Sorry, too much information?

But the point is that I'm lucky enough to have one of these friends.  Our whole "total disclosure" friendship really started when, one night while we were out having a few drinks and some rather nice Mexican food, she told me how she was having a hard time finding gentlemen friends since she'd moved to town.  She was used to the easy hook ups of Melbourne and Sydney, and the surprisingly prudish nature of Brisbane men baffled her.  How was she supposed to hook up if she couldn't even get them to talk to her in a club?

I was amazed.  Seriously?  Did people still meet in clubs?  Didn't she know that everyone meets up on the internet these days?

After asking a few questions it became clear that she wasn't looking for a relationship, just no strings sex, so I immediately signed her up to an adult dating website.  And I mean immediately, I was eating my burrito while I did it.  Five minutes later she was all set up with an online account at Adult Matchmaker and an anonymous email address.

That was the beginning of a bit of an adventure for my friend, who learned very quickly that the world of online casual dating can be full of thrills and delights, but also the odd weirdo.  It was great for me, the stories were hilarious!  So, naturally, I told her she needed to start a blog.

And that's just what she's done.  She's blogging over at "The Slinky Minx: Confessions of a Casual Dater" [link].  If you're interested in reading some stories from a woman who's just looking for commitment free fun but keeps getting more than she bargained for, then head on over and check her out.  Tell her I said hi!

Oh, and definitely go out and get yourself a "Telling Tales of Sexual Misadventure" friend!  Trust me, you'll thank me later.

  1. How funny that your friend's first post is Not in Kansas Anymore. Here in Kansas, I will have to live vicariously through your friend. I met my husband and married as a teenager so Internet match ups or even clubs are beyond my imaginings. Still it might be fun to see how it turns out for her.

    1. LOL! I live vicariously through her too ... but then she lives vicariously through me so it's pretty even. We have very different sexual styles ;D

  8. I just asked but my wife says I cannot have a "Telling Tales of Sexual Misadventures" friend.

  9. You got it -- it's great to have a friend like that. Or a few :)

    And good for her for actually admitting to wanting No-Strings sex. I still feel like that is considered taboo.

    1. It is, and I've never quite understood why. I can see why it wouldn't work for everyone, but it doesn't hurt anybody if all parties are willing and understand the deal.

  10. She definitely should be writing a book about her exploits.

    1. LOL! I'm sure she'll have enough material if we give her some time.

  11. It is often good and safer too, to have friends with benifits. You know they are available for a good quick shagging, neither of you wants kids or diseases, so you both pay attention and are careful in that respect and have at it from there.

    I agree everyone should have a friend like her. I just hope she's careful and remains safe about it. Things aren't the same as they used to be, that's for sure. I've heard of her blog, I will have to go check it out.

    1. A friends with benefits is wonderful if you can find one who is in exactly the same headspace as you. It can get awkward though if they're not.

  12. I had a friend call me up one time and ask me if I remembered the name of this guy who SHE had been sleeping with a year or so prior! She and her best friend were racking their brains trying to remember. Of course, I remembered! I have one question: Can I handle her blog? hee-hee!

    1. LOL! I had to do that once. I know, it's awful, but my defense is that I'm terrible with everyone's names, not just people I've slept with.
