Man in a Bottle


As I lie here in bed, it suddenly occurs to me that I miss the scent of a man.  His subtle fragrance left on your pillow case that lingers long after his departure.

It’s been over a year since I’ve dated. That’s because someone I was seeing crossed a line in bed. It scared me. (If there is such a thing as karma, his dick should have fallen off by now.)  Then it got really ugly and I had to rethink my choices. Like really getting to know someone before sleeping with them?  So, I quietly stepped out of the game.

It’s not like I haven’t been busy trying to build a career.

I heard from “Prince Liam” in Florida again.  It’s been three years since I’ve seen him.

Maybe I’ll just pick up some after shave or cologne…man in a bottle? But that’s the cowards way out. Or is it? One thing I’ve arrived at recently is, the beauty of masturbation is, the object of your desire never has to know he’s the object of your desire. No muss no fuss! (That may be a bit of an oversimplification. But I stand by it just the same.)

I was contacted by OkCupid a month after signing up, telling me I was in the top 5% response rate and asking my secret. I was stunned. I was in my 50's! Beats me! It's not as though I posted racy photos or I was plagued by blinding beauty! However it served it's purpose,in terms of finding dates,but finding a mate? Not so much. Along the way, I had some pretty nutty encounters, some more lethal than others. While my blog started as a retelling of these amorous tales, it's morphed into a myriad of stories, including many from my time on the planet. They range from working with the amazing Henry Winkler, auditioning for Nadia Boulanger, an attempted assault by one of Al Capone's retired former henchmen, and offering a homeless man (who was also a convicted murderer) a place to stay for the night. While most of this is older material but I'm considering penning epilogues or postmortems from my post pandemic, post #metoo perspective, as well as sharing more. So many stories to tell! Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!

  1. Mmm, I love the scent of a man – I’m not sure the bottle would cut it for me! Though every now and then a fragrance can bring back memories I thought were long gone 🙂
