Mrs. Robinson: Would you like me to seduce you?

By

Still, the boyfriend shopping invitation got me thinking that maybe I should get something special for the next time he visits — that stuff you see in Victoria’s Secret ads on the women with masses of hair and partly open mouths whose expressions suggest they exist in a parallel universe where all they do is get ready for sex.

“Hey, Victoria, want to go to a movie?”

“I can’t, I’m getting ready for sex. Whaddya think, should I pose in the door with my mouth partly open or crawl into the room on my hands and knees with my mouth partly open? I don’t want to seem too obvious.”

“You could get into bed in something silky and pretend to be absorbed in a book.”

“What’s a book?”

    Mrs Robinson… Oops! I mean *Ms Lester* (;)) that passage is *hilarious* (as is the rest of Ms Wedler’s accurate – I’d imagine – article). “Should I…crawl into the room on my hands and knees with my mouth partly open? I don’t want to seem too obvious.” and, of course, “What’s a book?” Bwahahaha! Fantastic discovery, Vickie. 🙂

    speak out the most horrible truth, miss vickie! the thing is, those poses are very, very, very difficult. it’s almost yoga.

    *giggling* “What’s a book?”

    Also: It seems to me this is a very under-served lingerie market just waiting to be grabbed in one fell swoop. If lingerie designers & manufacturers think Boomers—to say NOTHING of Gen X, Y, and whatever this one is—are going to give up sex and being/feeling sexy, they’re dumber than Victoria wondering what a book is (imagine her confusion upon being taken to a library, poor dear).

    Of course, most American women are wearing the wrong size. My bra size is, apparently, so unusual I’m forced to buy (expensive) bras from overseas! If the Ms. Wadler’s size were available, perhaps she’d be better served?

    Okay, okay, off the soapbox! I could talk lingerie all day. No joke.
