Joan Price is a senior sex expert, award winning author, and blogger. Price recently wrote a piece for Huffington Post called, “Things You’ll Never Hear Him Say When He Sees You Naked”. The piece is supposed to help older women feel better naked but it’s good for women at any age. How many of us have gone without shaving our legs to prevent ourselves from having sex on a date? How many of us prefer sex in the dark or candle light as opposed to daytime overhead lighting?
In Joan’s article she says, “You’ve got to trust me on this, he’s not going to say or even think any of the following:
• “Oh, gee, you have so many wrinkles!”
• “You’d be so pretty if you lost weight.”
• “Huh — I thought you looked younger with clothes on.”
• “I like firmer butts and perkier breasts.”
• “Uh, I gotta go now.”
I couldn’t agree more with Joan on this. I’m guilty of not shaving to prevent sex too early in a relationship (not that it ever worked), of asking for the lights off, or of setting the candles in certain areas because I know it’s good lighting for me but I grew out of all this when I was around 23 and realized that it didn’t matter to men. I live with someone now and this point has really been hammered home. It’s not that they don’t notice we don’t shave it’s that they don’t care. Sex is the goal, if they reach that goal that’s all that matters. It’s chemistry, it’s passion no amount of stubble or wrinkles will stop you from it.
I’m really glad Joan Price wrote this article and Huffington Post promoted it. Women, it’s time to stop being so ashamed. No one can be perfect 100% of the time. Your man knows you have hit puberty and have hair in certain places, he knows your age, he knows you wear a push-up bra and he doesn’t care. If he does, he’s the wrong man.
