Arlette is single, independent, loves her solitude, and loves sex. She has a partner who feels the same. They have great sex and good conversation, then she goes back to her life and he to his. They’re not living together or dating; they’re just having uncomplicated, uninhibited, and exuberant sex when they want to.
Arlette writes me that she’s living her fantasies — and I’m delighted for her. I’m just wondering if we have a term to describe the relationship that’s a bit more elegant or mature than “booty call”? (She didn’t call it that — I just can’t think of what to use instead.)
I know, some of you will tell me that this kind of relationship doesn’t warrant an elegant or mature term, but I don’t agree. If we don’t do exactly what we want at our age, when will we? I’m curious to know what you think.
