Did you know that in French the word "Devoir" is the infinitive of the word "MUST." As in "You MUST do something." In High School French "DEVOIR" also meant "homework."
Devour is another word ENTIRELY and is substantially more fun.
Because you have HOMEWORK. That's right, mes amis, DEVOUR. That is to say, DEVOIR.
Are you THOROUGHLY confused? AWESOME.
Think of it this way: SEX HOMEWORK.
NOW I've got your attention.
Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is this:
IF you are partnered:
You and your significant other are each to make a list of 10 INTIMATE things that you are interested in trying. They don't have to be freaky (but they certainly CAN be.) Then RANK the items from 'Vanilla' to 'Death By Chocolate' and then exchange lists. Go down the list until you find the most vanilla thing on both lists and make a date to try it, BEFORE TUESDAY.
I suggest you start vanilla-ish. You don't want to put "Wild gang-bang orgy drug fest" as your most vanilla item when your partner is starting with "exchange footrubs." The goal here is to find common ground, develop a comfort level with trying new things and expand your horizons - not to freak your partner out.
Also, no judging! The point of this is to find COMMON ground that will enhance BOTH of your sex lives, not to discover your partner's curiosity with bondage and use it against them. That would ONLY discourage future experimentation and you both lose.
Also, refrain from looking at #10 and saying "NO EFFING WAY." You may feel that way now but just saying that is judging and you never know what will happen between numbers 1 and 10!
(It is PERFECTLY acceptable to say, "The idea of #10 doesn't appeal to me now." That's not overly judgey but it takes it off the table.)
If you are NOT partnered you are NOT off the hook.
I'd like you to make the same list of 10 things. (Yours can be freakier, no one is going to see it!) and then I'd like you to retire to a private space and envision how these things my happen - both how you might meet the person and/or how the scene would play out.
Relax, have fun and come back and comment on whether or not this was fun, horrifying or useless! If you like these assignments I'll give you more! If you comment before Tuesday I'll recap the best comments for next Thursday.
