3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Sexual fetishes in general divide into two distinct categories - the touchy/feely and the smelly/tasty. Unfortunately, myself and missus have always been in opposite camps, but we've generally worked it out between us. With missus' libido now overtaking mine, my main objective these days is to please/satisfy her, and I am for the first time open to going fully smelly/tasty.
Consequently this week's encounter (well it's weekly when Son is home - he finds the concept of bonking parents disgusting) involved pre-adorning myself in mulled wine-fragranced gel, and then fun with a can of whipped cream was had. Safe to say missus' bell was rung, and her own high arousal helped me to complete the mission.
It's taken me this long to come round to the idea, but since fun with food really does it for her, I can see it becoming a regular feature. In return, most nights before lights out, I do get her nails dragged down my furry back, which though not sexually arousing is nevertheless the most exquisitely enjoyable physical sensation in the Universe, and pleases me immensely. I can just lie there and absorb pleasure. I guess the learning point is that the physical dimension of a relationship doesn't necessarily require identical tastes or libidos, just everyone getting what they want.

Unlike gas or water, mains electricity cannot be stored. The amount generated must always therefore match consumption at any given moment. Amazingly the whole of the United Kingdom's electricity supply is regulated from a single control room in Wokingham, Berkshire.
