PIN When you think about one night stands, do images of tipsy somethings stumbling out of bars come to mind? How about straight-laced, stay-at-home moms? Andrea, whose name is changed for obvious reasons, was brave enough to share her story of a one-night stand, and you might be surprised at how familiar her life feels to yours!
Advertisement Tell me a little bit about yourself! Maybe even a boring life. Not always boring though, right? We are talking about one night stands here! Can you tell me about that experience? About a year ago, I went to an out-of-town wedding for one of my college friends without my husband and kids.
After the wedding, I hooked up with someone in my hotel room. Was it someone from the wedding? It was actually someone I met online.
So was the one night stand something you were actively looking for? It was, which feels sort of weird to admit, I guess. I feel like I might get more judged for that than if I said it was just something that like randomly happened. But the thing is that I got married really young and my husband and I were very religious and waited until after we were married to have sex.
My husband stopped being willing to do oral sex after watching the kids being born, so our sex life kind of dwindled at lot. I still really love him and he is one of my best friends ever, but a few years ago I just started to wonder if I was missing out by only having one partner in my whole life. Were you wondering if sex would be better with someone else or just wondering about being with someone else in general?
How was the experience? It was kind of mixed. I made sure we used protection and I did second guess myself a few times, but he was really respectful and it was nice. How did you feel afterward?
I felt empowered and sexy but also a guilty and a little worried. I felt like I got what I wanted: Would you do it again? Your husband was also a virgin when you got married. Do you ever worry that he also has curiosity about being with other women?
Yeah, I do think about that. If he ever acted on it, I would hope he makes sure I never find out and that he is safe, like I was. Do any of your other mom friends know about this? This is in the vault. Well, thanks for sharing about your experience. What do you think? Can you understand why Andrea did what she did?
