It’s been a while since I’ve written. Some of you may have been happy about it, while others may have wondered where I went. Or maybe you never read my posts to begin with—after all I did only write two.
I can’t say exactly what caused my absence, nor am I suggesting it’s open to speculation, but I will admit that I did wonder if DC, or the Hill for that matter, was willing to read about sex and, in turn, talk about sex. Sure, I was doing all of the writing, but I wanted to hear what people had to say. What I really wanted to do was get our readers engaged in some thoughtful (dare I say saucy?) conversations. Our fair city is home to its fair share of sex scandals—sex with interns who shop at the Gap, high-end escorts who frequent the Mayflower Hotel, bulging crotch shots on Twitter—so I have to believe we can take some frank talk about sex.
And then I heard about the forums on the DC Urban Moms and Dads web site. Yes we can… talk about sex!
I’m woman enough to admit that I read about two hours worth of posts discussing everything from voyeurism and ball play to cheating, sexual fantasies and cheating as a sexual fantasy. With so many interesting topics to read about, what piqued my interest were the number of posts from women seeking validation from men, anonymously of course, about everything from what panties one’s partner might like to preferred sex encounters.
Maybe it’s because moms are quick to sacrifice their time and their looks in favor of raising children, or maybe it’s because husbands stop seeing wives as anything more than vice presidents of domestic affairs. Regardless of why, it appears that many moms are using this forum to make them feel like they matter or to seek validation beyond that which they get from successful careers or happy, healthy families. Women need reassurance that they are doing the right things in bed. They need to know what will help ignite desires. They need to know that they aren’t the only ones who wished they had experimented more in college. Urban moms want to talk about sex and they want you to tell them they are hot. They want to talk about sex.
So let’s see how you feel moms and dads (as well as couples without kids and singletons) of Capitol Hill. Do you read or post on DC Urban Moms and Dads (or similar blogs/forums)? Do you wish there was a local Moms on the Hill (MoTH) equivalent? Or is the topic of sex too much for you to handle?
