One email I often see (that I definitely don’t want) has this headline:
“Life is short. Have an Affair”
Yeah, because apparently I’m not living my life because I’m only having sex with my wife.
Because if I’m “restricted” to only having sex with one person I must not be experiencing the full variety of sexual pleasure this life has to offer.
Because having passionate sex with the woman I love, the woman who promised to love me for the rest of my life, who bore my 3 children…
Apparently that isn’t good enough.
In order to really live my life, I need to pay some site money to have awkward, unemotional sex with some random stranger.
I need to expose myself, my wife, and our breastfed baby to the dangers of STDs.
I need to risk tearing my family apart, destroying my wife’s sense of self worth, and creating a hostile home environment that would do unrepairable damage to my kids, all for a cheap thrill.
No thanks. […]
