    girthbrooks: Hello everyone, and thanks for some good and fun topics.

    Do you suppose I should wait until our daughter goes off to college before I introduce this site to my wife? Which of course would be showing her that I visit here from time to time. I sense, as parents, she would feel it is not appropriate.

    I especially enjoy the experiences and views of the women here. She seems a bit reluctant to talk about her past experiences, thinking that it would not be healthy for our marriage. But I should drop hints that it is OK and that I would actually welcome it now and then, no?

    Ladies, what do you think?

    Thanks and hello again.

    p.s. How do you insert a "signatue phrase" at the bottom of your post?

    Hello girthbrooks,

    In terms of your wife talking about her past, maybe she WOULD feel more comfortable doing that if you told her it was something you were curious about. However, make sure you're ready to hear what she may tell. Also, although she may be persuaded to tell you some of her own past experiences if you really want her to do that, you shouldn't assume she wants to hear about yours. Maybe she does, maybe she doesn't. I think some people have a hard time even picturing their spouse/partner with other people, much less hearing them talk about it. I would say talk to her about it and try to explain your interest without pressuring her.

    In terms of getting your wife to visit this site, I'm not sure why your daughter not being off to college yet would be an issue. Is your computer sitting in the living room or some common area where that could cause a problem? If not, you could explain that you discovered the site and found it helpful (or entertaining or both ;) ), then see if she responds enthusiatically herself.

    Good luck!

    girthbrooks: Surfgirl, thanks for the advice. Since I know I'm prepared to hear what she has to share, I think I will let her know soon that I'm up for more detailed stories. Kind of like those Cialis commercials. "When the time is right, will you be ready?"

    And who came up with the name so it can be pronounced "see Alice"? I love it. So if you're having trouble....... see Alice!

    By the way, we saw a great California movie on Saturday. "Sideways". Seen it?
    Very entertaining on a lot of different levels.

    Later
