Sex and the Sixty (Year Old): Show Me Yours and I’ll Show You Mine

April 1, 2012

The long and illustrious history of photography began many centuries before the first photograph was actually produced. Brilliant, creative minds like Chinese philosopher Mo Ti and Greek mathematicians Aristotle and Euclid described a pinhole camera in the 5th and 4th centuries BC. The first actual “modern” photograph of people,“Boulevard du Temple”, was taken by Louis […]

Fifty Shades of Bondage

March 6, 2012

56

Ask any woman what she wants in a partner and she will say “Trust.  Caring. Communication.”  But the success of Fifty Shades of Grey has shown otherwise.  What we all want is to be ravished from behind, while wearing a blindfold and doggy collar. In Part One, I introduced the book, Fifty Shades of Grey.  […]

Fifty Shades of Grey

March 3, 2012

Betty of Heifer 12X12, has alerted me to a book touted on the Today Show and across the planet, 50 Shades of Grey.  I knew it had something to do with eroticism and SM, so I intended to do some deep research before writing this post.  But, like the team on Fox News, I believe […]

Middle Age vs The Middle Ages

February 22, 2012

48

Many people nowadays confuse being middle aged with being in the Middle Ages.  They can be forgiven for a certain amount of confusion, since neither group of people had births recorded on iPhones and immediately posted on social media networks around the planet.  Neither group grew up with Tickle Me Elmo and Teenage Mutant Ninja […]

The Rebuttal

January 21, 2012

As Sitting Bull said, after the Battle of the Little Bighorn, “There are two sides to every story.”  And, because I would heartily agree, I hereby present a rebuttal from Movie Man. Movie Man, aka Mike, is actually a Good Guy and he has become a good friend of Susan’s, in spite of their first date.  When […]

(The following is the second in my new series, “Old Posts to Dredge out on Slow Weekends Because When I Posted Them Originally People Cared More About the Economy and World Peace Than My Blog.” Although nothing has changed, it’s the start of a slow weekend.) Now Husband Dan has a long history with pets.  This […]

The Myth of Older Men Wanting Younger Women

January 7, 2011

Ooooh, provocative blog title.  Life in the Boomer Lane can hear the heavy breathing of people lining up on either side of this debate that is so incendiary it will make you forget about bedbugs and J-Woww’s nude photo scandal.  So here goes: LBL has an ongoing disagreement with her friend Jean.  She insists that all […]

Your Very Own Virtual Dating Assistant

September 15, 2010

This month’s Marie Claire magazine informed Life in the Boomer Lane that successful professional women are paying ghost writers to communicate for them on dating sites like Match.com.  Women who do this “tend to work a lot and do nice things for themselves.  They go to the spa.  They pay people to clean their house and […]

Sex and the Sixty (Year Old) Pt6

Life in the Boomer Lane thought she had covered all of Susan’s experiences of the initial meetings with men, but she had forgotten one very important episode. When Susan agreed to her rules about coffee only/60 minute limit, she decided it would be a good idea to knock out (most likely not literally) as many […]

When Life in the Boomer Lane’s friend, Susan, goes on actual dates, she does exactly the same things that most people do. She goes out to dinner. She goes to the movies. She goes to female impersonator shows. But somehow, the end result always seems to veer off course. Sometimes, she and the guy never […]
