Sex dating and amputation
These are amongst the findings of a recent qualitative study by Verschuren and colleagues of 16 partners of people undergoing LLA.
The study, carried out in the Netherlands, asked respondents to reflect on their intimate lives pre- and post-LLA.
I did a quick survey for the 20/20 camera crew or some bitch standing behind me who had been the intended recipient of that killer smile, but found neither. Many months later, while lying prone in a hospital bed, I revisited this moment over and over in my head. The Hottie came on strong that first date and all the ones that followed. He went with me to my daughter’s theater performances. My kids jokingly referred to me as a “cougar.” I had a lot of fun with him, though I didn’t get to see him as much as I would have liked.
he had the kind of body that belonged on one of my fictional romance heroes!
Let me be blunt – full-time writers don’t get out much, and I certainly wasn’t getting any younger waiting for a man to magically appear in my office as I typed, alone, for up to fourteen hours a day. I was late for our first meeting at a little tapas place near Baltimore and the rain was coming down hard. Just before Valentine’s Day he stopped by and I gave him a card I’d made with notebook paper and colored pencils, the only supplies I had on hand. (And rightly so – he’d brought nothing for me.) Things really began to fall apart when I got home.
I didn’t know it then, but I had other love lessons ahead of me, and I couldn’t get to them until the Hottie was a distant memory.Predictably participants rated post-LLA sex less positively than pre-LLA sex.Closer analysis indicated this was more to do with frequency of sex and sexual activity.Bestselling author Susan Donovan had a successful career, great kids, health, and a lovely little house -- until she got bitch-slapped by a rare infection that should have killed her. The Hottie came to visit several times in the early stages of my illness, though I was unconscious.
