embarrassing? Is it taboo?
you remember your first official sex talk? The one your parents had with
you about the birds and the bees? I remember sitting at the kitchen table
with my mom and dad. Spaghetti was on the menu that night. I believe I was
twelve years old. Here I am at the age of forty-four. The world has
brought an education to me in regards to sex and relationships.
are all human. We all have a physical need within us that craves to be
fulfilled. How wonderful that first kiss was years ago. I believe I was in
the eighth grade. Do you remember your first kiss and how your lips

to find our soul mate in life. The one we can share all with including
total intimacy. In seeking this soul mate, we may find ourselves giving
our whole self to another. I personally feel when a woman gives herself to

yourself these questions. Do I love me? Do I know who I am? Does this

the Just Sex phase and entered the world of true intimacy!
