Have you heard of the book 50 Shades of Grey? I heard of it from several of my girlfriends and it intrigued me. What kind of a book can be touching the lives of so many women I know? I looked into it a little bit and learned it’s fondly referred to as ‘mommy porn’ which got me hook, line, and sinker. Afterall, I’m a mommy. If the book is so mainstream, it can’t be thaaaaaat bad, right? I was a little nervous and unsure. . .
I received a Kindle Fire on Mother’s Day. You know the first book on there was 50 Shades of Grey. I have to share with you, I’ve never read smut. I remember as a teen, sneaking to read a Judy Blume book, and thought I was so naughty reading a book that included content about a girl’s period. I was so squeaky clean . . . .
As my husband downloaded the book, I was mixed with emotions – unsure I should be reading smut, excited about what I was in for, and started reading immediately. I was done with the book in 48 hours. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book in two days. I’m not a big reader (until now).
Boy, oh boy, the book had me hook, line, and sinker in deed. Whew!!
As I read, I was glued to the Kindle. I was mesmerized at how attached I was to the story and what would happen next. The sexual tension was extremely HOT!! I could’ve so easily avoided reading it because I could’ve gotten wrapped up in my mind’s talk about it ‘not being appropriate’ for me to read it. Fooey! I was aware of the self limiting conversation in my head, and read the book anyway.
My teenage son was very interested in what I was reading. He knows it included sexual content and was certainly surprised to see me reading so much. I actually activated the password feature on my Kindle so he’s not tempted to sneak anything while I’m away from my Kindle.
Yes, I read mommy porn! I’m on the third book of the trilogy series and I’m already upset that it’s going to end. : ( I’ve already asked a sex therapist friend for suggestions of what to read next.
This is my life. I’ll make choices to suit me. Yes, I read smut. It’s eye opening, intriguing, sexy, (I have to admit) educational, and oh so sizzling hot!!
I’m sharing all this with you to ask you what sexy stuff do you steer away from because others may think it’s not ‘appropriate’? Please share below. I also suggest, if something appeals to you, do it!! Don’t ever hold back on living your life. If you want to go to a strip club, do it. If you want to pole dance, do it. If you want to read smut, I recommend it!
As a mom of three little tots, I have some very simple ways of being sexy at home. I know the norm for stay-home-mos is to be in sweats all day, with hair sticking out all over the place, and forget about shaving legs and flossing (who has time???)! But I realize that it does make me feel sexy and confident when I really take good care of all those little things. After a nice bath, when I’m all lotioned up, shaven and flossed, I like to throw on some comfortable but cute and stylish pajamas. I don’t have time or energy to be this “manicured” every night, but when I do, it feels like I have control of my beauty, even when in my own house.
Another thing I do is my husband and I host wine parties at our house. We put the kids to bed and have wine tasting with food and lots of friends. It’s nice because we are having fun together and with friends, and we don’t have to rush home to relieve any babysitters. We never go overboard with drinking though, because the kids are in our care. But we definitely get a little loose and silly which is great for us as a couple!
I started reading 50 Shades of Grey because I was curious too, but didn’t finish it. What I read was pretty hot though!!
Hi Candi. That’s GREAT that you take pleasure in cute and stylish pajamas. I LOVE it that you host wine parties even though you have three little ones at home. You’re so smart to take care of your own desires to mingle with your honey and your friends.
Thank you for sharing.
