Some may say that I am crossing the line even fantisizing about having sex with a women other than my wife. My wife says it is normal most people fantisize about it; it is only the strong and faithful that do not cross the line. I tend to agree with her.
I just wanted to say I agree with your thoughts here, I have a tremendoulsy close & beautiful marraige ...I can't say I thought too much like this before my sexual awakening, but after it - my mind suddenly was in overdrive in that fantasy realm, I started renting porn, I was having a gooooood time. I didn't cross any lines. He was never worried about that. I have always shared everything with my husband, including wayward thoughts, he was not offended, he found it all a little amusing even. He'd just say to me ..."my dirty old woman" with a smile.
Very very few spouses can be THIS HONEST with each other without being terribly offended. I am happy we can talk openly like that. Funny how as my sex drive has declined back to where it once was, that fantasy life has also taken a dive. What hormones do to our heads is an amazing thing- so I have experienced.
I agree with Bottled up when he said this
I don't find that statistic hard to believe. The way I see it, our challenge in life is trying to use our intellect to make good decisions and overcome our historical primitive mammalistic physical tendencies. |
It's not hard to believe that 7 out of 10 people can't resist their "inner primate".
I would assume the statistic is including EA's....this is what makes it so high.
