Dating a tease

I've been teeming with irrepressible urges to get it on for as long as I can remember. I was the girl in the GAP velvet overalls your parents didn't want you to hang out with because she showed you her live-in nanny's condoms. Now, don't be ashamed for being a lusty woman — it's really is great thing.

I believe having a heightened sex drive is a surefire sign of mental wellness, and I wouldn't dumb down my sexuality for anyone. However, I believe there are two key components to being a good lover: being enthusiastic, and being a tease.

Disclaimer: I'm a sex-positive lady who — in NO way — is here to shame women and men for having sex right away (to each their sexual own); that's not what this conversation is about.

Look, babes, it's no secret that I'm a highly sexual creature with an insatiable libido. The 11-year-old, pimply girl who finds a Playboy magazine while snooping under her older brother's bed and brings it to school the next day to show all of her tween friends what naked women look like, huddled in the bathroom stall?

Humor builds rapport, and finding things that we both find funny is way of finding commonality.

Humor helps us have fun, and we appreciate people who have the ability to bring the fun.

But there is ONE problem with being a horn dog, ladies: Sometimes, we just aren't the best at channeling our inner tease goddess. (And trust me, I really had to work at mastering the art of the tease.)It didn't come naturally to me at first, but now that I'm really into it, I love it.
