Who wouldn’t want to sleep with a sex expert? Apparently this guy. Glamour is running a piece about the pressures and stresses of being married to a woman who gives sex advice for a living. Nervous jitters, jealousy, and frustration with a lack of privacy all fall on the boy-toy pet peeves list. From the article:

These are the things that happen when you’re married to a woman who writes about sex for a living. My wife is Emma Taylor, of the Em & Lo duo that has published six books with titles like The Big Bang: Nerve’s Guide to the New Sexual Universe and dishes explicit advice on dailybedpost.com. While countless couples have thanked Em & Lo for saving their relationships, there have been times when Emma’s job nearly destroyed ours. Luckily I’m smart enough to know that a gorgeous, brilliant and wickedly funny woman only comes along once in a man’s life, so I’ve learned to be the sounding board/guinea pig/pet subject of my very twenty-first century wife.

Obviously, as another woman who makes her living writing about sex, I can’t help sympathize with the poor guy (when he’s not trying to control what his wife writes, of course). My fiancĂ© feels much the same sometimes, I’m sure. Having the sexual life of your partner aired online is one thing, but when he finds details from our own adventures while perusing my articles… Well, I give the boy props. Now let’s just hope he doesn’t go write a confessional about it.

    Ugh…. Kind of my nightmare right there. I’m very private when it comes to bedroom/lovelife antics and hate it when women talk…. and unfortunately they do.

    Admittedly, plenty of men ‘talk’ (or i would like to think embellish) but i’m not one of them. Can’t stand it – especially when the person relating the story comes across as being derogatory to the partner in question whether it’s seeming lack of respect or patronising in the other’s inability to satiate the teller.

    Maybe i’m just weird?

    Most certainly a nightmare for me… I am very fond of my privacy after years of living with three hooligan brothers who don’t know the word unless it is about their own privacy. I really like to keep things for myself and even my girlfriend has yet to see the poems I made before we came together since I am most sincerely embarassed of them.

  3. Spence Says:

    I can’t imagine any of my close friends or family would care.. and I certainly wouldn’t mind strangers reading about my relationship and antics. It’s the people in that aqueous group between friend and stranger that I’d be most concerned about.

    It’s not an ideal way to introduce yourself to someone if they know the inner workings of your relationship but not your name.

    Honestly, it’s hard for me to judge how I would feel if someone else ran around writing about what I was like in bed–since I’m often in the reverse position. Still, as far as rumors and lack of privacy and such, I wouldn’t foresee having a problem with my lovers “talking”–at least among friends or strangers, as family is another issue (I’m a very open person with a family who’s not so open). The only thing I could foresee worrying about is my lovers saying I did something badly in bed. If they had nice things to say, or they told the stories in a way that implied they enjoyed themselves, why not tell the world?
