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.
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
Previous Sex Stories right this way.
