Sexual Attraction…

You never feel sexy enough for him. You think your thighs are too thick, your arms are too wobbly, your tummy is too flabby, your chin is too fatty and of course there’s the hair. You have hair everywhere – your legs, your back, your arms, your tummy, your face. You’ve had something close to good sex only twice in the two years you’ve been married, every other time was either awkward or seemed like a chore. Maybe it’s because he’s freakishly tall and you’re just 5 feet 3 inches. At first you both worked at it and tried to make it better but eventually you gave up; actually he gave up first. You want to make it work, you want to score an A+ in the bedroom department, you want to make your husband the happiest man alive but you just don’t feel like you’re enough for him. You know he loves you but you don’t think he is sexually attracted to you so you ask him: “Jay, are you sexually attracted to me?” He puts his laptop aside and walks to you with a smirk on his face: “Come on Jane, you know I’m extremely attracted your soul and who you are inside.” As he plants a kiss on your head and walks away you can’t help but feel rejected. You know his answer to your question is “no”.

You have been on the internet for hours searching for solutions to your problem and you think you’ve found something that will work. Tomorrow is your anniversary and you’re going to blow Jay’s mind. You don’t really believe you can do it but you’re willing to try.

You’re back from dinner at that new restaurant in town and it’s time to shower, Jay has showered already and is in bed watching the news. In the bathroom you take out the red lingerie from the Victoria’s Secrets bag lying on the ground. You look at it and sigh, consoling yourself that in the end the 18,000 Naira you spent on the thing would be worth it.

You return to the bedroom with your bathrobe on and you walk to the stereo. The CD you bought earlier today is already inside so you press play. You take the remote and mute the sound from the TV. You step in between your husband and the TV and close your eyes. You let the music get to you and you begin to dance, slowly, trying to be sensual and all. With every passing second you feel more confident and by the time you’re done your lingerie is lying on the floor. You look at your husband and it’s pretty obvious he’s trying hard to hold it in but he can’t and he bursts out laughing. He laughs and laughs till his eyes glisten with tears and you stand there staring at him with a scowl on your face.

INTERMISSION (Indian movies style ;))

For the first time in a long time you both felt awesome. You feel as if you’re finally getting the whole sex thing right. You look up at your husband and ask him: “My striptease must have been good huhn?” He replies: “Yeah, it was hilarious!”

  1. It’s hard to please some people at times. The best thing is to always act natural and respect other people’s opinions and ideas.
    Life is easier lived that way.

    Nice write….#imfollowingthis

      Thank you :)

  2. Lol hilarious! & I can totally relate.

  3. Lol….this is good. I can’t just help but laugh.. I’m not yet married though, so I would better seal my mouth on the subject. The title ‘Sexual attraction’ doesn’t really scream ‘attraction’ to me, a better title might have been more fitting. But that’s just my POV by the way, other writers may think otherwise.
    You did a good job.
    Well done.

      Thank you…I thought the title might draw readers to the story…. :D

  4. There was really no form of sexual attraction here. Your description. of it was lacking. Was a dance enough to stir up the passion in the man, cos during your earlier narration nothing was pleasing him.

    Alot was missing. Alot of things that would ve made it a masterpiece.

    Just ma humble observation.
    Keep on writing.

      Thanks for your observation. This was not intended to be a masterpiece as I literally rushed through it. :)

  5. Sexual attraction . . . the dude is gay! I may be wrong, but when one reads the story from that perspective, you will see that all the little details actually fall in place.

    Nice write.

    The writing is good, but the content is lacking in sexual maneuvers that i had expected to see.

    1. Korayday (@DelectableKay)

      Sorry you were disappointed miss :P

    I actually think the content matched the title, at least to me. I have been in a relationship with someone where we both just lost the sexual drive. The love was very present, we would always laugh at each other’s jokes,complete each other’s sentences, and even understand when we need our individual spaces, but the sex drive just wasn’t there. We worked hard to make it work but… uh… We did a whole lot of things then sha o. Actually we ended the relationship after we decided that it was best to remain best friends.

    I commend the woman for at least trying. And slow dancing is a beautiful way of turning someone on, especially when she is adorned in a Victoria Secrets lingerie
