Am I Going Sex Crazy?

Dear Mouthy Housewives,

I’ve been happily married for over five years now, but my husband is gone a LOT (he’s in the military.)   For some reason, I’ve suddenly found myself being attracted to young, cute guys lately. I’m nearly 35-years-old, and they’re usually just legal enough to buy their own drinks. I’m even flirting a little! I don’t ever plan on cheating, but I can’t seem to quit LOOKING (and drooling and acting kinda foolish!) Tell me this is normal for a woman my age and I’m not going some kind of sex crazy… please?

Signed,


Momma’s Gettin’ Old

Dear Momma’s Gettin’ Old,

You almost had me at “Hello” (or Dear Mouthy Housewives), but then you had to sign with “Momma’s Gettin’ Old” and as a 36-year-old myself, I don’t know what to do with that. You have completely vaporized my fantasy that 22-year-old guys find me attractive at my age. Thanks. Thanks a lot. Now I ought to tell you that you are going some kind of sex crazy as retribution.

But no, if we Mouthy Housewives pride ourselves on anything (other than our tolerance for alcohol) it’s our honesty. You are not going sex crazy. It’s only your biological clock gasping its last breath. Your reproductive hormones are now operating on hyperdrive, physically demanding that you make babies with young, healthy, fertile men before it’s too late. This experience is like hospice for your ovaries, really.  At least that’s what I tell myself every 14 days when the shirtless 20something guy is cutting grass and I suddenly find the inspiration to clean the outside windows. In my tankini.

So relax. You aren’t developing a psychological sex disorder and what you are feeling is perfectly normal. For a perimenopausal cougar, anyway.

Rawr,
Heather, TMH

If men are allowed to look at beautifull women, we women are allowed to look at handsome men. Nah!

Nothing wrong with a little looking… at any age. And in my case… a little dancing because my husband hates to dance and thinks its hilarious when I shake it with a younger guy attempting to coax him into actually dancing with me. He’d rather let me flirt on the dance floor. Oh well.

For me, it’s the thought of those butterflies that come along with first kisses. There’s nothing wrong with a little daydreaming, and when they flirt back it’s not so bad for the ol’ ego.

As my mother said to me, when I was a teen & she commented on someone being cute: I’m married, I’m not dead.

I say if your husband gets to be surrounded by young men in tight camo pants, why can’t you? It only seems fair. Just don’t move into any barracks.
