George Michael taught me everything I know about sex
Well here’s my Friday ramblings, I hope they make sense. I did not really have a sex talk, so I am going to have to add some "filler"
I was a late bloomer. I was pretty busy in my high school years. Actually I slept through most of them. I woke up at 4:45 AM 5 days a week and went to swim practice, then to school, then to swim practice again, home to dinner, homework and bed by 9. I slept a lot because of swimming. I slept through dates, through class, and through church. Skiing was the only thing I can remember being fully awake for. But like I said, I was a late bloomer. I went on a handful of school dance dates and that was it. I went on my first no school date when I was 18. I had not kissed a girl till after my mission and my first real girlfriend was met until I was nearly 24. I just was not interested in relationships. I blame this on my mom. She used to answer the phone, and if it was a girl, she would tell them it was inappropriate for young girls to call boys. I had a lot of friends who were girls, but there was never any real advancement due to the embarrassment caused by those situations. I went to the “maturation talk” in 5th grade, all I remember is that my dad was the best volleyball player there (we played volleyball and had treats after). I also remember my teacher was female and she was at the talk. I could not look her in the eye after that night, I don’t know why. I never got the talk from my parents. My dad had talked a little bit after the volleyball game, and that was informative. But that was about it. My parents had tried with my older brother.
It went like this: They took him into the bedroom, closed the door. About 3 minutes late I remember hearing my brother laughing, my dad snickering, and then my mother yelling at both of them. It was a failed attempt. They gave up on me, and figured I would be in college before I could really get myself in any trouble. They were right.
So that’s the history of me and the “S” word.
I don’t have too many thoughts on the subject. It’s just a rule, or commandment. It’s not hard to obey. You just do it. After my mission I drove a shuttle from Sundance to the airport. (Great tips) One night I picked up three really hot 25 year old girls from NY. They got off the plane pretty tippsy. During the drive to the report it came up that I was LDS,
“You mean you don’t drink?”
“You don’t sleep around?”
“And you are not gay?”
“I don’t know how you do it. I can not go 1 day without sex and a drink”
The other two girls agreed with her. There were some jokes about them giving me a tip in another form if I were to come up to there cabin with them, I respectfully declined and told them I had tuition due next week, and I would prefer money.
I have thought about that a lot since then (not the invitation to join them). I thought how sad that they could not control themselves. That they could not take the urges and control them. These girls had no control on their lives.
I was thinking about sitcoms in the 80’s. Family Ties, Growing Pains, The Cosby Show, and I then I thought about shows in the 90’s and those of today. Friends, Senifeld, Will and Grace. What a contrast. How long would Family Ties last as a new show today? Well if you made Michael J Fox a Gay Democrat, and Mallory a lose slut who slept with everyone, (Not just Nick) and Jennifer, well they would have to get rid of her, then the show would be a hit.
What I am saying is that sex is everywhere. Its flashed before us every time we turn on the TV. I do not think it is as special a thing as it should be anymore. If you disagree with me, send me your email and I will forward all the junk email I get daily to you.
Maybe its time that people put more thought into chastity, and morality, and in abstinence. Maybe I can make a T-Shirt that says “Abstinence—it’s not just for Mormon and Baptist youth groups anymore”.
I hope I did not offend anyone, I mean, I really do think Family Ties would have been better with out Tina Yother.
