Back into the swing of the dating pool, feeling more confident about having attracted more people, getting more looks on the subway ride to work (aside from the homeless men looking at me as if I’m a Human ATM Machine), I decide to diversify my assets. . . see what it’s like to date more […]

First Time Between the toothpaste and floss Underneath the silky red panties, marred only by the price tag still on it In the zippered flap of my weekend bag – I am choosing.
