Marriage Of One

Hello all, I’m not going to go on about how things are in this post: it is just more of the same as our sex-life (I should say Susan’s really because it’s got nothing to do with me) has returned firmly to the once-per-quarter-if-we’re-lucky state.

I recently threw out an empty box of condoms.  Not news for most couples presumably but the interesting subject here is when the box was bought: June 2008.  There were 12 condoms in the box, and I threw it out just a few months ago.  So 12 condoms over just over 4 years: you do the math as they say.

So my question is, has anyone made a box of condoms last longer? The rules are that it has to be a box in ‘active’ use – so you can’t say you had a box in the cupboard since 1990 and forgot about it until you fished it out last month!  Also, you can’t have been using another source of condoms at the same time.

I say that because I did have another box of condoms – flavoured ones in our completely unused ‘porn’ bag.  This was also a box of 12.  I bought those at the same time as the other box because Susan had given me the impression she was going to change and I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt.  I used one of those in June 2008 when Susan made a hemi-semi-demi-half-hearted attempt at trying to pretend to want to learn how to give a blow-job.  I threw the remaining 11 out with the first empty box.  But I don’t count the box of flavoured condoms because they were locked out of immediate access and were technically not in ‘active’ use.

I have bought another box of condoms – a box of 18 this time (not out of optimism – just happened to be a good price).  Based on past experience, expiry dates notwithstanding, I’m “covered” until 2018!



  1. So I’m just catching up on your blog now, so color me ignorant because maybe it’s in here and I just haven’t read it yet. If you try to initiate sex, what is the usual response from your wife? I’m just curious. Also if you DO try to initiate sex, how do you initiate it?

  2. Hey BadLady, it IS in here somewhere but probably a l-o–oong way back!

    I gave up trying to initiate with Susan several years ago (probably 2005 or before). From what I do remember I don’t think I ever had a ‘regular’ way. Sometimes I talked her into it, sometimes I just kissed and it led on from there, sometimes I gave her massages, and sometimes I just jumped her! We didn’t have a sex-life for long enough for us to get into a routine!
