Happy New Year! Let’s start off 2011 with the most captivating topic I can conjure up. I don’t think it’s any secret that I like to approach this off-limit topic in the funnies: you got it…sex. Also known as its watered-down, print-worthy euphemism, “intimacy.”
I think sex is an honest and intrinsic (well, let’s hope) part of marriage, and therefore I deem it a necessary subject in my brand of story-telling. We’re talking about fleshing out a narrative that runs through the mind of a married woman. If sex isn’t occasionally on her mind, well…she definitely wouldn’t be my alter ego (sorry if you’re reading this, Mom).
Actually, as far as the character goes, I also cover the lack of sex on the mind. Or, I should say, the lack of time and inclination. After all, she’s an exhausted working mom.
To sum up, I cover all my bases. Jill and Rob certainly try to find time for intimacy, whether it’s spontaneous or scheduled. They also find excuses not to have sex (well, she does). Whatever the case, I’m glad to broach the topic. It’s something virtually everyone is interested in. M’right?
