I thought you had the condoms!

Well, it finally happened.  Despite my major condom stash at home and the fact that I usually have my little pouch o' condoms in my purse - and despite The Boyfriend's drawer being regularly restocked - the horrible moment came.

The moment you realize that you don't have a condom.

Of course, this moment never comes BEFORE the moment you really *need* a condom to be in that drawer or in your purse.  Where would be the painful humor in that?

One might ask why The Boyfriend didn't notice he'd grabbed the last one... well, no, let's not ask that.  There was a moment he didn't notice he'd just grabbed the last one, and a similar moment where his fumbling hand reached into the drawer to find not one condom.  And none in my purse.

Heat of the moment - no condom.

And I had a weak moment.  I sadly squeaked, "We could do it without a condom, but I'm afraid then we'd just get in that bad habit."  I have an IUD for birth control, and I'm confident The Boyfriend is faithful, but... Yeah, we weren't going to have sex without a condom.  No go.

You know what?  There's actually nothing to it.  Painful as it was, we were both tired.  So in the absence of a condom, we groaned miserably and went to sleep.  Not happy, but the world didn't stop turning either.  In fact, the interuptus of it all became a bit of running foreplay until the blessed moment we fell into my bed... right next to major stash of condoms.

And Ah, what a little built-up frustration can do!

Hah! I was emotionally unavailable for about 8 years of my twenties - too many problems at home and at work to focus on men. Result? There was one guy interested in me during those 8 years (!one!)-... Read More >>
