    My husband mentioned tonight how I’m postmenopausal and no longer interested in sex. HA! What does he know?! A little romance and sweet talk goes a long way..

      Agreed! The way to a woman’s affections is rarely through her zipper!!

    Well said! Enjoyed your take on having a “ball”! At 55 I finally have time to care about sex. Raising a family can zap any zipper activity but now whoopee!

    Thanks for a light hearted, fun post!
