Sex Stories: 003

Sex Stories is an ongoing series focused on the relationship to our sexual partners, our community, and ultimately, to our physical and spiritual self. In this weekly series, we will feature short and long prose, that examines the layers of sex (or none at all) during a pandemic. This series aims to not only demystify the sexual experience for folks right not, but hopefully, narrows in on the reality that sex is an integral aspect of our very unique pandemic journeys. No matter where you are physically, spiritually and mentally, our hope is that by sharing these stories, we will all continue to hold each other, together and apart.

Eight minutes 

Bent over the clothes dryer, 

Pressed against the garage door,

A view of the furnace behind his shoulder, 

Intimately getting to know

Each wall and corner 

of our basement.

Straining to hear, 

Past our heavy breathing, 

the cry of a waking baby,

Our kids’ footsteps down the stairs.

Hoping that these eight minutes

Were enough.
