(This post is a brief sample of a chapter from a book I am writing. I hope you like the concept!)
I am amazed at the variety of places and objects that illustrate truth about sex. Tonight I went to Braum’s to pick up some ice cream for my wife, Holly. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!) There must have been 30 different flavors in the row of freezers I looked through. My eyes were drawn to the Brownie Batter because that is the one I knew Holly would want. Then I noticed the Peanut Butter Cup, and the Snickers, and the Peppermint, etc. Let’s just say I walked out of the store with more than the Brownie Batter!
As I hovered over the row of freezers, envisioning a spoonful of chocolate Cake Batter finding its way into my mouth and wondering how upset Holly would be if I blew the whole bill in my pocket on ice cream (I bet old Ben liked ice cream too), I realized you can learn a lot about sex in a freezer!
Chocolate, Cookie Dough, Strawberry Shortcake, Mint Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Pretzel, even Vanilla, they are all variations of the same thing, ice cream. No matter what the type, it is still ice cream.
It’s the same way with sex. Fantasy sex, solo sex, cyber sex, text sex, oral sex, “true sex,” call it what you want, it’s all still sex. The brain and the body respond the same way regardless of the type.
We live in a culture that tells our children, “It’s not really sex.” Perhaps every parent should take their children on an outing to an ice cream shop. After all, you can learn a lot about sex in a freezer.
