Sex or money – Which is harder to discuss?
71 Comments on "Your Turn"
Those are two of my favorite things to talk about, especially with my husband. But then we both are economics nerds, and our relationship is basically built on sex.
Money. Sex is hormonal, money is life. Simple as that.
I can talk about all kinds of sex. Mine, or other peoples, straight or kinky. Legal or less than.
..but it will be a cold day in hell before I ask how much something cost, how much someone makes and it will be another cold day before I answer any questions about that.
Unless it's the sex life of a celeb. Then it's open season.
Money. I'm WAY more hung up about that than sex.
If speaking with friends/close relatives – neither.
If speaking with a stranger – money. Maybe. I'm pretty open about most things. However, if you want to know my feelings about it, unless its something superficial, there's where the uncomfortableness comes in.
I can tell anyone just about anything….except how I feel about it. Does that make sense?
Based what I have found out about my recently departed husband…BOTH.
Jealous of Lila! Remarried with money and kinky sex? Yes, please! Maybe someday…
SJ…lived it for almost 20 years. Then he went off with the much younger woman and now he is her problem. Suck it moon face.
Oh my God, MONEY ALL THE WAY.
SJ, seduce your husband. Tell him you saw some dumb thing in Cosmo and wanted to give it a try. Anything that will open up dialogue with your best friend can only strengthen the relationship.
Sex. I'm always bitching about my financial problems to anyone who will listen.
lol @ Bella
I'd rather talk gossip.
Muhla. Our fights about money is waaaay more intense than sex.
Me – listen honey, it's been a while…you wanna do it tonight?
Him – Hell yeah!
Well, since I'm not getting one or the other, they both suck to discuss right now. Though hopefully that changes tonight. I need to go out.
But usually, money. It's a tough topic. And also somewhat boring.
Money for sure.
Depends on who with but 9 times out of 10, money. But I don't wish to discuss sex with elders though esp if they are relatives.
Neither. Blurt it out ffs.
Well, since I am not getting any of either right now…I would say both. \
Money.I could talk about sex all day.
Money is boring to discuss. You either have some or you don't. What's there to talk about? I'll talk about both, but sex is much more fun
Money. (That's what I want)
very funny Harriet! wish I was there!
Both. Especially now that I'm remarried. No one needs to know I have more money than I ever have and that our sex is much more kinkier than anyone would expect.
The sex talk is seriously overdone, what happened to privacy? I don't care if you have to add $150 to your quarterly budget because you wear out your vibrator like its the end of the world.
My first statement makes me sound like a prude (which is far from it – especially 10 years ago.) Overall, I just feel people have lost their sense of privacy.
lol Harriet! That story is hilarious.
Oh gawd Money is a million times harder to discuss than sex!
Hell even doing "the Talk" with my kids is easier than discussing money with my husband!
Harriet you had me at the matching mullets
I guess what I'm trying to say is that I agree with amanda rae and RJ *LOL*
Money…..Sex is the easy one to discuss….money gets messy
Moolah for me.
@ AJ – good luck, it will happen when you're ready.
And, Money, definitely. Although a girlfriend of mine told me a long time ago to never tell your girlfriends how good your man is in bed because they may be tempted to steal him. I don't like that kind of thinking, but I must admit I do follow that rule. But he is SO GOOD! 😉
Money because I don't have any.
Money….because I am terrible at it…er…managing it. LOL.
Money is an extremely touchy subject. I try to NEVER talk about it.
I agree with amanda rae, sex is overdiscussed. Talking about it too much really does take the sexy out of sex. Most people need to talk less sex with friends and acquaintances and more sex talk (real, factual talk) with their kids. Then maybe there would be fewer single teen moms. Kids today are drowning in sexual innuendo and starving for actual facts about both the act and its many, many possible consequences.
Money. Always. At least sex can be comical, money is always uncomfortable.
Although I actually talk freely about $ too, come to think of it.
Not even close – money.
Money. I get squirmy even thinking about it.
Money. I wish I didn't even have to think about it. As far as sex goes, I'll talk about it, I'll do it, I just don't want to see it—like running, most people are either laughable or plain ugly while doing it. Give me Bette Davis and Paul Henreid sharing a cigarette over porn stars any day.
$$$. I am shameless when it comes to sex and have no hangups about it that I know of. I don't force the sex talk but I roll with it.
Sex FOR money….lol!
Money!! I wil clam up and run/hide under a rock!!!
