So at the party last night, the topic of sex came up a lot. We were watching Sex in the City and playing the Sex in the City trivia game...so...

Anyway, I admitted that my last r/ship was w/a guy that rocked me into outer space. I can't go on enough about how absolutely FANTASTIC this guy was...it was very passionate. I had

I am like you. I tell DH everything. And I'm comfortable with him sharing everything with me. I didn't date anyone seriously prior to DH so there are no "past lovers" stories from me but I know some intimate details of his past partners.

I've gotten the same reaction from other women. "Why would I want to know about that?" "Doesn't it make me jealous?" etc. Of course I'm not jealous...he married me and that's all that matters!

DH & I have no secrets & are very honest with each other,
Now I may *wait* to share/tell him something (usally about youngest ds) ..
But I always tell eventually :)

LOL - that is funny!!

I agree tho, why bother getting upset about the past. It's gone and never coming back...

There are some things from my past that DH doesn't know about, that no one knows about, except for me. Now stuff that goes on now, yes, he knows about that.

As for other people knowing about my sexual past or present, that what I've done or do now doesn't concern them. DH and I live an alternative sexual lifestyle, one that tends to freak out people, so only my closest and most open-minded people know about it.

Well I am totally honest with my husband.............but I could have never done what you did at the party - I think my husband (even if he knew) would have died from embarrassement and probably want to leave immediately

If you can't be honest with your husband......well you know - we all have to be.

Thanks! I'm pretty open about our relationship on the Love & Sex boards here on iVillage, but away from those particular boards I don't advertise my lifestyle. A lot of people don't understand it and think I'm a freak. Well, I am, but in a good way!
