Not that I ever read Parade magazine, ever, but it just happens to be a part of the Sunday insert and while I'm sifting through coupons (yes, I would rather admit to that than reading Parade), I noticed the current cover story by Gail Sheehy:
She is the experienced woman--open to love, sex, new dreams and spirituality and committed to revitalizing marriage. And there are millions more just like her. Now Is Her Time
And until now it wasn't? So what does this "experienced woman" want? Just a few highlights: Good conversation, mutual sexual pleasure with emotional connection, not to be tied down... Doesn't the latter contradict the ... oh never mind.
As for what the "Seasoned Woman" offers: A 'what-the-hell, life-is-short' joie de vivre, emotional stability, a knowledge of what she wants sexually and the appreciation of a good lover ... In the bedroom and beyond, she knows exactly who she is.
In short, The New Seasoned Woman is ... horny?
