Having to guide my boys on my own, take care of them and make plans for us has made me brave. They rely on me for their basic survival, not to mention emotional support, and I will not let my own fears or insecurities get in the way of that responsibility.
Might as well write on my tombstone: "Loving mom had sex with two different men in one weekend. Devoted her life to worrying about it." Having wild sex with multiple partners after separation isn't a pair of shoes most have walked in, and promiscuity is contentious; it could be hot and juicy, yet still trigger judgement, even moral outrage.
As a divorced woman who doesn't have an active sex life (sigh, blame it on bad luck), I'll honestly admit that if a man dared kiss me right now (and he was a good kisser), clothes would be flying off within minutes. I wouldn't have the desire to show restraint. Nothing short of the roof collapsing would stop me.
