Airing your dirty laundry

braIn this day and age of sexual liberation, it seems everyone has a tale or two to share.  Everyone out there seems to be quite interested in telling all regardless of whether or not the people around want to hear it.  So many times, I have found myself stuck on a crowded platform and forced to listen to the guy next to me talking into his phone about what he got up to the night before.  Not taking any regard of the uncomfortable people around him, he goes into detail of the act and leaves everyone feeling nauseous and disgusted.

Now I’m not saying sex is a disgusting act in itself.  No.  I am saying that I do not wish to hear all that you did behind doors, closed or open, on a Monday morning as I try to re-adjust my mind frame on the work day ahead.  In fact, on no day of the week, do I want to be privy to your conversation of how much of a sex god you are and the things you are capable of doing to your partner.

It seems to be everywhere I turn.  Not only do I have to endure the bill-boards with half naked and in some cases fully naked women on them, I merely have to turn on the TV for the assault on my senses to begin.  That is why, on my way to work or even in a restaurant, I don’t want to have to listen to whatever it is you do when the lights go down.

I once had a friend.  He loved telling me in detail everything he was doing with the different women he was doing it with.  It didn’t matter whether or not I was interested in listening; he wanted to share and so I was forced to feign interest. The thing was he would never share this information when it’s just the two of us.  No.  Someone somewhere must hear him as he divulges all the information.

That is the bit that annoys me.  Just as I don’t want to walk down the street and see two people going at it just because they can, I don’t want to listen to anyone talk about the things they are getting up to when no one is watching.  A few days back, a friend of mine was telling me he went into the pub for a drink and a group of women were standing at the bar talking about their sex toys.  He said he was so disgusted by the way they were talking, he left the pub and went somewhere else where the conversation was more to his taste.

Now I know some people somewhere are thinking ‘what’s wrong with that?’  Freedom of speech and all that.  Here’s what I think.  I believe that whatever you want to do in the privacy of your house is your business.  That’s between you and your God.  For me, I don’t want to hear it.  You have a toy at home that you use to pleasure yourself when no one else is watching.  What makes you think I want to know that?

Do women, or men for that matter, think anyone finds such talk enticing?  Is that why people do it?  Like if you talk about how good you think you are in bed, someone listening might get curious and want to find out for themselves?  I don’t understand it.  There was once a time when people considered such things vile and just rude.  Now it’s a show of your sexual prowess and might be the thing to get you laid the next time round.

I don’t know if I’m the only one who finds this utterly ridiculous.  I would hate to be the woman on that bus sitting there with her 6 yr old having to listen to some person talk about things that make even the vilest of creatures cringe.  Surely a little consideration should come into play.  By all means, tell your friends what you’ve been getting up to.  Just do it someplace where the rest of us don’t have to listen to you ramble on and exaggerate all the things that actually happened.

I’m not trying to tell you how you should conduct yourself in public.  What I am saying is be prepared if you are going to air your dirty laundry in public, to get some dirty water splashed in your face.  No one should have to endure your tales.
