Woman D: The impact on the sex was definitely negative.
At 18, I was just beginning to explore my sexuality and he was already comfortable in his.
I think that because I was 18, he had expectations that I would be wild and crazy and open to anything.
There were things that he expected with his party lifestyle that I felt very uncomfortable with, but would ignore my instinct and go along with to make him happy.
Would you say that you are more attracted to older men than younger men, or men in your age group? I've also always been attracted to power dynamics and to the idea of inhabiting a more sexually submissive role.My cousin actually said, "Forty-five is the new 30!" My mother was less OK with it, but I expected that. Woman D: My family, especially my father, were very much against the relationship. My friends thought it was "gross" and it took them nearly all four years of college to warm up to my boyfriend.As a 30-year-old woman, I understand their hesitations now.As an 18-year-old, I thought they were close-minded.
