Sex Abroad

Sex Abroad

With ever increasing numbers of foreign workers fleeing poor economic conditions at home to take up jobs in the Middle East and the like which are more secure (and often pay far higher than equivalents back home) it has brought into sharp relief the very different attitudes to relationships and sex.Take the recent case of the woman who has been jailed for two months in Dubai for engaging in "consensual sex." To you or I, that sounds just this side of apeshit, but morality can be a very different thing in other parts of the word.  More famous is the case of the British couple who were jailed for having sex on a beach. To our relaxed Western sensibilities, the worst thing about that is the prospect of getting sand in your nay-nays but (again) in Dubai.

Jack and I had our first romantic interlude on the 4th of July.  Back in college, going out with someone usually meant deciding to end up in the same place, so I wouldn’t have called it a proper date.  We met at Boston’s Charles River Esplanade, watched a couple bands and some fireworks, then Jack leaned over and said, “I dig you.”  The rest was history. Over the years, I’ve come to believe relationships are meant to teach us how to relate authentically yet continue to be our most genuine selves.  Some folks need to learn selflessness, others intimacy, and some just need to learn to put the toilet seat down. Kicking off my relationship life on Independence Day with Jack was hardly an insignificant twist of fate.  This first real love set me off on an endless quest to learn the meaning of freedom.  See, Jack already had a girlfriend.  Thus, our year-long liaison was an education in

What could I be doing wrong..?

What could I be doing wrong..?

I seem to find men that are interested in me....but aren't ready to commit...I'm 24 and am a single mother to a little boy...I can't just go out when I want to things gotta be planned I feel like I'm just having a hard time finding someone that understand my situation with being a single parent and not being able to be so flexible in plan making....Im just very busy in my life trying to get things situated in all aspects and keeping life things organized for my sons sake...maybe right now is not a the time to me to find someone...I have a 1 guy in my life right now that the relationship is friendship with sex attached and that basically being it...maybe its wrong!? Im just not the type of girl to control a guy and tell him what to do...maybe thats being a door mate and not speaking my mind...Also I just recently had sex with guy that has been in my life for a few years due to him ustp being friends with my sons father....yet he is still living with his sons mother unhappy in the relationship and is planning to leave...but i dunno if I want to even get involved in the hangout wait session and build emotions and have them crushed.....Maybe I need to cut ties with these type of men?
