Let’s talk about sex baby.
More specifically “Goodbye Sex”.
Aka ta ta shagging, au revoir ménage, bon voyage bonking, see you later 69ing, or just farewell fucking.
Whatever you call it, it sucks (no pun intended). There’s a sense of “shit, time is running out and we won’t be getting to DO IT for ages so we’d better make this round count.”
So there’s a fair amount of pressure to be a super awesome, bendy, fluttery eyelashes, up for anything minx. Even when all you want to do is the standard sideways cuddle position, check your phone for Brexit updates and then fall asleep.
Then there’s the emotional side of it. Sometimes, just before they deploy you don’t want them near you like that at all. Because even if they don’t mean to, they are hurting you by leaving. It’s not rational. It’s not logical but you hurt at the thought of the impending aloneness and their role in it.
No amount of Barry White or wining and dining will shake that feeling.
But you want to be close to them.
You feel vulnerable and angry and sad and scared and downright unsettled. So the natural reaction, the normal reaction when feeling threatened is to seek reassurance from the one person you feel closest to. Sexy reassurance.
But the emotions are running so high and you’re trying to get yours whilst making sure it’s a session they won’t forget in a hurry and at the same time you’re trying to make sure your mummy tummy isn’t showing and it’s too much pressure.
Goodbye sex is almost as exhausting emotionally as homecoming sex.
Except you don’t get to have another shot in the foreseeable future.
And no pun intended (again) but that’s hard. Really hard.
