I’m surprised Jennifer doesn’t view you as needy and smothering when you’re touching her all the time. Jennifer, be honest…do you ever view his desire and need for constant attention from another as a weakness?
Jennifer: Lol, yes the sex blogger is sexually needy…but in a good way! He is more sexually high maintenance than many other men, but I’ve known that for all of our almost-17-year marriage. The needy-ness isn’t a turn off, it’s him letting me know that he is paying attention to me, he wants me and he is into me. I’m not smothered or annoyed…we are both touchy-feely people. We naturally like to hug, kiss, get a quick back rub, and yes have a little grope when the kids aren’t around. This is part of how we connect with each other and show that we love each other.
Also, you hear about 10% of our day, the sexy lovey-dovey part. 90% of our day is the mundane working, doing laundry, what should I cook for dinner, ask your father for help with your geometry homework kind of stuff. We are not velcro-ed together all day.
The Marathon of Play and Teasing doesn’t happen every day, or every week even, but when it does it’s a special time for us to re-center and re-connect with each other. (okay, that sounds corny but it’s true.)
