Back to Bed

“Hello?”
“Hey, what are you doing?”
“Oh, I was just taking a nap in the middle of this beautiful weekday like a huge asshole. What are you up to?”
“I was just doing the same exact thing! And let me tell you, I had the craziest dreams.”
“What were you dreaming?”
“Oh, stuff about sex, mostly.”
“Was it good?”
“I don’t think sex dreams can ever be bad.”
“I do. I dream about rape pretty consistently.”
“Oh, that’s awful.”
“Yeah, but rape isn’t sex, I guess.”
“Sure, in a world where there’s a clear distinction.”
“Yeah. I’m going back to bed.”
“Wait! Can I come over to do laundry and hang?”
“Yeah, of course. Just don’t expect me to be pretty.”
“Oh, I’d never expect that.”
“Hmph.”
“Oh come on, Mrs. Grumpy Pants, you know that’s not what I meant.”

  1. well it can be hard when you drink alot and dont exactly remember the deets. or when youre young and dont understand consent. “What happened last night?” “Oh, i was just gonna hit the hay early but then when i woke up he was having sex with me again.” <—red flag

    1. For sure. It is very complicated. I just mean that if it feels to anyone that they didn’t give consent, that experience should be honored and not discounted, on an emotional level
