This week while at the doctor I was lamenting about how much I hated getting old and having reader glasses hanging on the tip of my nose in order to teach classes. She innocently asked what I teach, and I squirmed a little bit and then thought, why not?
“Sex classes to wives at church.”
She replied as she listened to the thump, thump of my heart, “That’s a good thing. Women can probably use all the help they can get.”
Then she said, ” Do you teach men’s classes?”
I was just about to answer that, ” actually I do and they are awesome…”
When she caught me by surprise and acridly laid out, “Cause men need to learn that our libido changes, especially after a certain age..”
This woman wanted her husband told that she didn’t need to have sex anymore because her body was not physically screaming for it. She could not have been older than 35 or 40 – tops. For many women, this is when we are just starting to relax and really enjoy things, but she was ready to be done.
I sensed the conversation was over, but I have been thinking about it all week.
