This was a post I found from 2006. I'd only come out a few months before. I'm guess I'm sending this out to anyone who is still in the closet, to those who know that they want to at least try this lifestyle - I say take the leap. Your partner might say no, and the downside is that you've had an uncomfortable conversation.
But the benefit if they say yes can hardly be measured. I know I'd never been so happy. I admit we didn't stay at this peak forever, but it's still so much better than before. I did go back and found Bonnie's funny original post that got me thinking of all this.
I just loved Bonnie's post on the benefits of spanking verses Prozac. I thought Bonnie was brilliant as usual but what really cracked me up today was when a friend at work asked me when I started taking Prozac. I laughed and told her I wasn’t taking anything. She said “Well what is going on with you then? We have worked together for over 10 years and you have never been this happy. You sit in these meeting where they keep giving us more and more crap to do and you just keep grinning like nothing can bother you. You have to be on some happy pill!”
It shows! It’s not my imagination, it’s not going away, and I love it! As the conversation continued I told her I was actually kinda down because this was Nick golf weekend and he was going to be gone. She jumped in again. “And what’s with that! You used to say that was your favorite weekend of the year because you got rid of the kids and got to spend it all by yourself. You guy learn some new position over the summer or what?” What fun! If she only knew.
