Divorced women back in the dating game refuse to be depicted as a bunch of sex-starved idiots who pounce on young men.
If there's one topic I will defend 'til the end of time, it is the right for a woman of any age to find romantic pleasure with anyone she wants at any time without being made to feel self-conscious. Women are already self-conscious about just about everything thanks to the invention of "air brushing."
We divorced women are disappointed in "Cougar Town," the new sitcom that debuted last week on ABC, and we cringed watching it because it was crude. Proof is in the blog comments from "the girls" on my previous blog, “Cougar Town Writers Should “Scrub” Their Mouths With Soap’, which I really hope keep on coming in to show just how powerful this demographic is. Divorce Saloon checked in on this with us and feels the same way.
Unlike what "Cougar Town" would imply about our lives, pouncing on young men is not at the top of our daily to-do lists. We're more likely to pounce on a pile of laundry since we barely have time to get to that. If we use crude language, it's likely to be about the pile of laundry.
Not that divorced gals don't aspire to romantic encounters of the sizzly kind; we do, but as we test the awkward waters of new romance, in older bodies, for goodness sake we'd like a little sensitivity. We hold up the world for so many around us to thrive and survive, we typically put their own needs last.
Now we are giving ourselves "permission" to seek pleasure at the same time gravity has decided to kill us. Figures. We're all just trying to figure it out.
One thing is for sure: We deserve pleasure as often as possible, in whatever form it comes.
Therefore, if pleasure should happen to come in tight black 34-36 underwear, so be it!. We don't have to apologize! And we don't have to wash them either!
