A caveat is necessary: You can’t help who you love.
Maybe Tony Bennett and Susan Benedetto are genuinely the greatest love story of our time.
Women get stick for being the obsessive, crazy sex, but in my experience, it’s the opposite. ‘Younger guys aren’t as forceful or bothered.’ On top of this, the older guys had no chat. My penchant for the younger lad also probably has a lot to do with the fact I’m pretty immature for my age – I was a very late developer so always feel like I’m a good few years behind everyone else.
Why have we let our gender be tarnished with this lie for so long? When some girls were having sex, I hadn’t even started my period.
Still, more often than not, these pairings feel icky because they are icky: The parties aren’t on equal footing; different experiences and life stages are inevitably going to make it harder to relate.
