Now, any of you that know me or have read any of my work know I have a vivid sexual mind, but is it all talk or do I walk the walk? Here's a true story. I'll let you decide.
Let me tell you about a one night stand I passed on, many years ago in my carousing days. My buddy and I were sitting at the bar of a dance club called Skinny Dugan’s next to a woman who worked at the same company as us. I’d never seen her at work (it was a big company) but we’d talked before at this same club, so seeing a familiar face at the bar we took the vacant stools beside her. I have to admit she wasn't bad looking in a Goth sort of way. We talked a little and I was in a frisky mood so more as a joke than anything, I wrote on a cocktail napkin, 'Would you like to fuck?' and slid it over to her. To my shock, she said absolutely. In hindsight, I probably wished I'd taken her up on it.
I don’t want you to think I’m a total dud, having notched something like a dozen one night stands, but I was so surprised, I thought this was too easy and silly me, I tried to get out of it. LOL How? By adding fuel to the fire and saying my friend and I were a team and only did threesomes. LOL In my relatively young naivety, I believed women had a different set of values than men when it came to sex and that would surely back off this all too eager woman. It probably goes back to my lying high school health teacher who told our class; while men can have sex with anyone, women need a romantic link to have sex. I’m sure there’s a modicum of truth there, but experience and observation have led me to believe men and women’s views about sex are extremely close.
Back to my story. I swear to you this is true. She said it sounds good to her and proceeded to tell us some of the kinkiest things she'd done. Like I said, this happened several years ago so I don’t remember the experiences she cited but, she did get around. I seem to remember something about four guys. (at once?) Then she asked what was the kinkiest things my buddy and I had ever done. I managed to get my share, but I was pretty conventional so needless to say, what I had just proposed and was trying to get out of, would have been the kinkiest thing, I'd ever done.
By now, my friend was green. He was married and had no intention of getting between the sheets with her. He looked at his watch and said, "Oh my God, I have to go." and split—the coward. Of course, that left me an out because my so called threesome partner left and dumb me, instead of making an exception because she was so hot and all that tripe, I took it.
I think about that sometimes. Two of my existing books start with true incidents I experienced. (The ones with the long titles) Maybe I should write this experience into a new book.
What do you think?
And while I’m asking questions, for the sake of research :
1. Has anything like that ever happened to you?
2. What would you have thought if you’d received such a note? (Providing you found the guy who passed it attractive.)
3. How would you have responded?
4. Assuming this was a little too overt for your tastes, what pick up lines or methods, if any, would have worked with you?
