The idea foe this book started when I was talking to a friend of mine. She was an attractive, sweet, funny nurse who always seemed to have guys flirting with her anytime she went out. It was my impression that she could have any guy she wanted. And, I really do think I was right. However, she is one of those girls that constantly has to have a man in her life; doesn't matter what kind of man, cute or ugly, good or bad, just as long as there's a man around. She would go on a date with anyone who asked her out, and I mean anyone. After the date, she would bring him home with her, have sex with him, then the guy would basically move in that night. Oh sure, they'd live in bliss for a few weeks during they honeymoon phase, then she'd spend the next few months of her life miserable, supporting some bum who didn't work, cheated on her and, and times, was abusive. She would finally break it off with that guy and then the next man that asked her out...the whole cycle would start again. I asked her why she continued to do this, and she replied by saying that she just gets lonely. When I asked about joining a group or getting together with friends, then her story changed to "I miss the kissing and cuddling and just laying next to someone". I then asked why she doesn't just cuddle with them, why go all the way to having sex. Then, the truth came out! "Because I like sex. It feels good. It's hard to stop once you get going". Ah...now we are getting somewhere! So this got me thinking, what is the point of sex? Is it only to achieve that brief moment of utter bliss? Or, are we trying to feel emotionally close to someone? Are we trying to fill some other void in our life? Is it strictly to pro-create?
