Under the heading of things you have not tried, but would like to.

You answered , "sex with another person" could you elaborate a little please. How can you know that your Bi, if you have never had sex with another person?

Hippy Chick said...

Mr. M - how does one know one is straight if they've never had sex? or gay? or whatever? you know who you are attracted to, who you lust after, you don't have to do it to know.

spinsterwitch said...

Exactly what Hippy Chick said. I am attracted to both men and women. I have fantasies about both men and women. I have dated both men and women. I have kissed both men and women. I have been in love with a man and a woman.

In my mind this makes me bi.

I sometimes wonder, when this question is asked, which gender is in question? Is the question about whether I could really be attracted to women or men without having sex with them?

Fred said...

Egypt? Where did that come from Spin? I've never been there, but as a world history teacher, it would be fun to visit.

spinsterwitch said...

Fred - it was purely free association...I was thinking where would I want to be, and I realized that I really wanted to be at Hatshepsut's temple, Deir el-Bahri. I've read descriptions of it, and I believe the restorations of it are completed. It sounds like an incredibly holy site (built by one of the few female pharaohs). So I simplified...I want to be in Egypt.

Aravis said...

Let me know when you're going to Egypt; I'll go with you! :0)

Mr-Mystic said...

I guess I should be more BLUNT with my question. Spinny are you saying you're a virgin?

the urban fox said...

As is always the case, the nature of each person's comment tends to say far more about them than any other subject. Funny how that works. Great answers Spin and I'll gladly come with you two to Egypt!

the urban fox said...

(I forgot to mention that this post gave me the "Mahna mahna" song as a day-long earworm too)

spinsterwitch said...

Mystic - if by virgin you mean that I have never had sex with another person, then yes I am a virgin. However, I have been vastly creative on my own (with some helpful toys).

Foxy - I'm glad that I could be helpful with that earworm...I was also infected, if it's any consolation.

I just wanted to let you know I think you are so completely sweet and lovely.

I agree on your TV shows as well. Katehrine Moenig and William Petersen...heh heh heh. Lovely. Of course, I like the plots as well..

And there is nothing better than a soft chair and a good book. Well, almost. Nothing beats a kiss.

Mr-Mystic said...

Well Spinny, I never knew that. I have to say it must be entirely your own doing.

I would think that a warm hearted good looking woman such as yourself would have a multitude of willing partners knocking at her door.
