SEX: DO YOU TALK ABOUT IT WITH FRIENDS?

I had a friend once who regaled me with all the raw details of her sex life on the regular.  She discussed orgasms, the size of her partner's 'package', and how a man made her feel.  I've read various genres of romance all my life, and even watched a porn movie on a dare, but I could never get used to her casual conversations about those sexual escapades.  I'm not a prude, but I was always embarrassed and never knew what in the heck to say. I mean, was I supposed to reciprocate with my own info? Should I have agreed with what she talked about?
Most of the time I just laughed, or tried to change the subject. A few times I even said, "Girl - you're crazy!" and walked away. (lol) Even worse, she got a kick out of my reaction. 

I'm the person who feels more comfy talking about your back pain, your kids, what you ate for dinner, or what you did on vacation. *heh*

Has this ever happened to you? How did you handle it?  Do you talk about sex with your friends?  Does this happen with just young people, or is everyone on board?



COUPONS
Some coupons are more difficult to get than others, particularly those for meat and veggies.  One way to handle that is to write or send an email raving about the product, or to sign up for newsletters.  If they sell it in your grocery store, Fresh Express is really good.  Sign up for their newsletter to get news in advance, as well as coupons you can use. http://www.freshexpress.com/

  1. Yes, I've known people like those you mention. Fortunately, I've always been good at redirecting their train of thought. Thanks for the info on Fresh Express!

  2. I know a couple of people like that, I don't discuss sex openly with people... only my partner. I do the same thing you do by saying you're crazy girl and walk away... some people have no issue with it... however; I think it is TMI...Have a great week Ro xox

  4. I'm a bit of an introvert and really don't socialize much in real life. The fact is I don't have any friends except for online, so I don't have these types of conversations come up. lol I would probably just laugh and change the subject if it ever did come up though.

    1. I hear you on that Mary! Laughter and changing the subject or just walking away usually work quite well in most instances. Hugs...

  5. So not classy. I could see sharing very light details but gah yeah I had a 'friend' like her in college who would come into my office and share everything even if it was someone I knew and I was like NOOOOOO stop it! stop it! lol

    1. YIKES! Now that had to be rough to deal with someone who actually came right to your office to tell crazy stories! Ugh...(lol)

  6. It is totally embarrassing. I did have a friend like that once. I got used to it, honestly, but she just was one of those people who said whatever was on her mind. And I think she got a kick out of people's reactions, too...she loved seeing people embarrassed. But, underneath it all, it's just a cry for attention, that's all.

  7. I've had a fair few launch into the details of their sexual encounters and I've told them to stop- that's private, etc. Some were shocked when I stopped them because some how they equated 'social worker' (my job) with sex therapist (not even close). I was like 'no, I'm not a counselor or therapist for sex or anything else. I don't get paid enough'. And they would shrug and look disappointed like I was a let-down. I've not had a friend do it to me yet so I guess I can thank the lord for small favors, but I don't think it would bother me though I wouldn't reciprocate.

    1. Dang Sophia, that sounds crazy that someone would actually be disappointed that you didn't want to hear those deets, and mad props to you for having the courage to stop it at the front door. My friend did it for so many years and knew it embarrassed me, but once I started sort of not responding, the stories went away. (sort of-lol) Definitely no reciprocation on my part, but don't think she didn't ask! (lol) Hugs...
