I Like Every Time We Have Sex

By Ellen Kennedy.

“I want to have sex with you.”

“Thank you. I want to have sex with you also.”



“When I say I want to have sex with you I mean really.”

“So do I.”

“I mean really, I don’t just say that as a feeling. Do you understand? Did you really mean that you wanted to have sex with me when we were waiting on line at the movie theater before or did you just mean that as a feeling?”

“I don’t know. I’m sorry”

“Don’t be sorry. I really want to know. If I want to have sex with you I would really have sex with you.”

“Okay. Thank you.”

“Do you want to go to the bathroom with me?”

“No. I don’t feel aroused anymore after all of that.”

“We both agreed that it’s what the person’s final decision is that counts, not if it was influenced by the other person or if they thought of the idea on their own.”

“I know. I just don’t feel aroused anymore.”

“Okay. Are you okay?”

“Yes. Are you?”


“Did you like the movie?”

“Yes I liked it.”

“Good. I liked it also.”

“What time is it?”


“Okay. Does the train leave at 9:07 or 9:14?”

“9:14 I think.”

“Okay. We will be there soon.”

“When we get home, you can shower first.”

“Okay. Thank you.”

“Thank you for giving me a blowjob on the train. That was very nice of you. That was brave.”

“You’re welcome. Thank you for telling me that was nice and brave. I am glad you liked it. We probably could have just had sex on the train without anyone noticing. In an interview I read on the internet a person said that the best place to have sex in public is at a concert standing from behind while jumping with everyone else. That seems skillful.”

“That is good. I would do that with you. I would have sex with you in public. I think if anyone sees us it will just make their lives more interesting and maybe help them reevaluate what really hurts people. Whenever you want to have sex with me you should try it and I would like it. I like having sex with you whenever you want to.”

“I am glad you would have sex with me in public. I agree that it doesn’t hurt anyone. I wanted to have sex with you in the handicapped bathroom at EPCOT when we shoplifted the alice in wonderland dress.”

“I would have had sex with you then. Thank you for telling me that. I put 3 vitamins in my smoothie today to counteract the sickness.”

“You’re welcome. I am glad you would have had sex with me then. I drank three smoothies today. I have been felling better. I hope you don’t get sick from me.”

“I am glad you have been feeling better. I feel pretty good. I don’t think I will get sick.”

“Good. Can I call you when I get into bed?”

“Yes. I would like for you to call me when you are in bed.”

“Okay. Thank you. I hope you have a good night.”

“You’re welcome. I hope you have a good night also and sleep well. Good night.”

“Good night.”
