On Valentine's Day Evening I had the opportunity to do a little show, a sexy show that is, at a local restaurant. At the Italian bistro Via Vanti, located in beautiful downtown Mount Kisco, New York, Carla Gambescia, the proprietor, (and a fellow babe member ) invited me to talk to diners about....sex. In honor of the holiday, she offered patrons a special romantic menu featuring all the important food group aphrodisiacs, namely oysters, figs, and chocolate.
Originally I thought I'd do a 15 minute show based on romantic, sexy ideas culled from my Running Press Mini Book, "10 Nights of Passion." The book, er, booklet, comes packaged in an adorable pink box and includes ten nights of sexy suggestions of new things to do both in and out of bed, as well as 3 sealed jugs of love lube, a tiny brush, and a scarlet satin blindfold. As it turned out, at least a third of the patrons who had signed up for the dinner, n had no idea I was there to perform and trust me, I didn't want to wreck anybody's romantic dinner. So I asked Carla to introduce me to the diners who had come specifically to see me. Then I table hopped like a taxi dancer, spending about 10 minutes at each.
It was a most rewarding experience, because I learned so much about married, middle aged men. (For the record, I think the diners were pretty happy about it, too, since they got to discuss their personal preferences and information with me privately, as opposed to bringing up, er, ED, in a crowd.) I should say all the diners were married couples of A Certain Age. That age I would rate as between 45 and 70. In other words, there were no spring chickens, and being 56 myself, that was fine with me.
One of the most interesting thing I learned was that every single one of the men I talked to loved being blindfolded. They also all enjoyed having the area around their ears and down the sides of their necks, lightly stroked with the mini brush. Ladies, you all have a make up brush: use it. A tiny brush works much better than a feather, which for some reason just makes people feel tickly. The point of this light stroking is that it sends chills down the spine; it produces an erotic tickle; it wakes up the senses. Remember that game you did as a kid where you pretended to crack an egg on someone's head and then ran your fingers lightly down their back and neck? I loved that game, probably because even as a child, I was already into the erotic.
One of these married guys brought up the issue of pubic hair as we stood chatting at the bar. He specifically said he likes it. "I'm of the bush generation," he said, and I knew right away he wasn't referring to George Bush, not either one of them. His wife giggled and admitted she had quite the pubic 'fro. He added he had hair to spare down there, and on his chest, too.
My single friends report that pubic hair is a big deal if a date goes that far. A 45 year old woman said it scared her when guys asked her to shave it all off. "The younger guys freak when they see pubic hair," she said, adding that all the younger guys she dates are manscaped. A 55 year old guy who dates every weekend said he likes a bush that's been neatly trimmed, but if she's got no pubic hair at all, he finds that off putting.
I'm sure this is really one of those generational things and I'm of the generation that prefers pubic hair. A bald bush looks to me like a plucked chicken, not to mention hair covers scars, like from a Caesarian section. Pubic hair also holds natural aromas, which are so important sexually. It is awkward when you get older and your pubes become patchy and thin. A friend once told me she goes for the bare waxed look cos she said it made her upset when her pubes turned white, like the hair on her head.
The only downside I can see about having a full pubic bush of hair is that it takes a little longer to dry when you first step out of the bath or shower. Otherwise, I think it's attractive, and what's more, provides a nice cushion of cover to protect my lady parts when posting up and down...on a saddle, that is. I ride a horse a few times a week, remember? In any case, whatever your age, if you've got pubic hair, flaunt it. Bushes are beautiful...but not George Bush...sorreeeeeeee.
