  • Lynne’s Reading Corner November 25, 2014
    Before I was a writer, I was a reader. (Still am) I devour a book a week, minimum, usually more. This month, the book I’m most looking forward to reading is The Best Kind of Love by Kerri Carpenter. It’s a small-town contemporary I had the chance to read in draft form, and I can’t wait. It comesRead more...
  • Thanksgiving 2014 November 24, 2014
    This will be the first year not going to Miami. Instead we are heading up to New York City to see the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. We have no plans for a turkey dinner on Thursday and Mr. Silver keeps joking that we’ll eat at the $0.99 pizza place. Um, no thank you, but myRead more...
  • Washington Loves Readers Luncheon October 25, 2014
    As you know (or not), I chaired the first ever Washington Loves Reader’s luncheon on October 11, 2014 along with author, Kimberly Kincaid. It basically meant I got to pick the lunch menu and assign seats. {Rubs hands mad with power} 40 authors showed up to wine and dine the readers, and well, when you getRead more...

Get it Together Tuesday: The Couples Massage

On my honeymoon (in Hawaii- yes, it was fantastic), my husband and I decided to get massages on the beach. But since it was our honeymoon, we couldn’t go it alone. We booked a couple’s massage.  We lay side by side on two massage tables and two women entered and massaged us. It was the least relaxing, most giggle-inducing 50 minutes of my life.

My husband was 2 feet away. Being rubbed ANOTHER WOMAN! Why does anyone think that’s sexy? Trust me, it’s not. It’s not as though we were close enough to touch. And we certainly weren’t going to engage in intimate conversation with two strangers in the room. So unable to fully relax, my mind wandered to such important topics such as…did men get erections during massages…had my husband…was my tummy making a weird rumbly sound…did the hotel have a decent sushi bar…and well, you get the idea.

In my Spice Brief, Rapture, Catherine does find something sexy at the spa, her massage therapist, Hunter. They end up having several hot encounters on the massage table and develop their connection into an actual relationship. I find that a lot sexier than an already established couple looking for a connection on the massage table. Now maybe if I ever bothered to take those massage classes, I’d be happier….

So, I’m glad we tried it once, but we won’t be repeating it. Massages are ME time and we’ll find other things to do for intimacy. What about you. What’s the sexiest or least sexiest thing you’ve done with your partner besides making whoopie?

ADDENDUM: My least sexy marriage moment happened on my wedding night. I wore a fairly poufy dress and after the ceremony I had to go to the bathroom. My husband bravely volunteered to hold the skirt up over my head while I took care of business. Lovely start to marriage. I guess it’s was practice for pregnancy and childbirth when they see it all.
