The fact that women are still criticized for expressing their sexual autonomy is a serious problem. No one should be made to feel guilty for openly and honestly pursuing consensual pleasure. Which is why it’s sincerely admirable that your mom is as open to the public as a library.
Too many women, through absolutely no fault of their own, are shamed for having perfectly natural and healthy sex drives. Relentless cultural pressure tells us that women who sleep with numerous partners are “promiscuous” or “sluts,” even as men are congratulated for their sexual conquests. This hurtful double standard reinforces the idea that sating a biological need somehow damages these women or renders them inferior members of society. It’s a stereotype that must end and that your mom is working hard to fight, because no one can deny that she is a strong and capable woman even after she installed that number dispenser on her bedpost.
No one’s sense of self-worth should be defined by their sexual appetite. Why should anyone be concerned that your mom, much like a fan, is always blowing someone, when she’s also always striving to advance her demanding career and raise her children in a healthy, loving environment? When your mom looks in the mirror, she doesn’t see a city bus that people have been hopping on and off all day long; she sees a hard-working professional who’s successfully balancing a career, a family, and a thriving sex life. And shouldn’t we admire that?
So while it’s true that your mom, much like a restaurant, takes deliveries in the rear while welcoming guests through the front all night long, we should let her do as she pleases. Even if what she pleases is to let more seamen pass through her body than the Panama Canal. It’s her prerogative.
We live in sexually confusing times, but as a bastion of the wellness community, our stance is clear: There is absolutely nothing wrong with satisfying your sexual needs in a healthy, consensual environment. Which is why all of us here at Bunny Ears salute your mom. No one embodies the ideal of positive sexual communication more than her, even though, like a squirrel, her cheeks are always stuffed.
When she’s inevitably named one of history’s greatest wide receivers, we’ll be the first in line to offer our hand in congratulations.
