Sorry, guys. No Bachelorette recap today! Why, you ask? No, not because I missed last night’s episode (I watch the show on my iPhone, like all the super-hip romantics do). But because the hometown visits got me feeling a little emotional, and I *almost* shed a tear when Chris’s father started talking about his dead wife. Oh, dads.
Anyway, I was pretty ashamed by my sudden outpouring of almost-emotion, and I fear that it’s the first step in a dangerous spiral of tastelessness and commitment to reality television romances that usually end like this. So in order to pull myself back from the ledge, I’m putting The Bachelorette on hold. Let’s talk about sex instead.
But not just any sex! Sex that involves older women. In case you were wondering, “older” = 27-45 years old. And while it freaks me out to be included in the same sexual demographic as my high school math teacher, a recent Time Magazine article – “The Science of Cougar Sex: Why Older Women Lust” - says that Becky and I should be happy to be part of this group. We’re apparently having more sex than our younger (18 through 26) and older (46 and up) cohorts!
A bit counterintuitive, no? Aren’t we supposed to be living it up in our 20′s, just to get married and have kids in our 30′s and consequently bid farewell to hot, frequent sex?
