Fifteen Minutes of Shame
Hello. I am the anonymous girlfriend of a one Ms. Stephanie Schroeder. I’ve been asked to give her a mini-vacation and write a guest blog post this week.
I met Stephanie (her real name) on several occasions over the course of several months. When we actually had a “date,” in less than an hour it was mutually agreed upon it would be an evening of “casual” sex. I was shocked and delighted at how easy it was to get her into bed. This experience was dramatically different from most of my other arduous and toilsome attempts to have casual sex.
Stephanie took me back to her Brooklyn apartment, took off her shirt before I even had a chance to feel her up, and moments later, she was naked, on the bed and ready to have her pussy pounded beyond belief.
Twenty-four hours later we had another casual sex date, after which we both expressed our thrill over our successful casual sexual encounter and lamented how challenging it was to have regular casual sex experiences in the lesbian community. And it was then Stephanie revealed she was the Hook-Up Blog author. What? I couldn’t have been more excited, she was—for real—putting it all out there and encouraging lesbians to get it on!
And, I was flattered my casual sexual contribution was going to be blogcasted worldwide. I was thrilled to get my 15 Minutes of Fame, even if it was anonymous.
It’s now two years later and here I am, in a committed relationship, happily living with Stephanie. And, since we are airing our naughty laundry, I’d like to point out that besides sex, the other fantastic additions to our relationship have included farting, nose picking, burping, detailed bowl movement descriptions, sophomoric commentary on those topics above plus even more raunchy joking around. I’ve truly re-created the dynamics of my family of origin–but luckily the good dynamics only!
However, on the now HookED-Up Blog, I find myself, the shy part of me, walking around in a cloud of what feels like Fame-turned-to-Shame.
I’m utterly mortified my friends are reading the Hooked-Up Blog (and they are). I am utterly mortified my brother-in-law has made the Hooked-Up Blog his home page (I’m afraid to ask). I am utterly mortified that EVERY SINGLE PERSON I WOULDN’T WANT TO READ THIS BLOG does, and can find out I’ve been plowed with a strap-on dildo, details about which can be read in the archives right here, from nearly everywhere on planet Earth.
But, my ridiculous humiliation is a small price to pay to be a part of a very sex-positive and politically charged moment in time. I want all my queer sisters to be having safe, hot and happy sexual lives. Such a notion can never get enough promotion or enough sisters getting—and giving—each other such encouragement, in my opinion.
Besides, I love Stephanie and support her blog whole-heartedly. Not to mention it is fantastic having a relationship with someone who is supportive, actively advocates communicating about the easy and hard issues, is an ever-evolving human being full of humor, also sexy, a feminist, an anti-assimilationist queer rights activist and hot in the sack to boot! And, she very generously offered to introduce me to anal sex. My goodness.
