I have disliked children my entire life. They’re cute and all, but I don’t relate to them. I didn’t as a kid and I don’t today. I thought it was weird and something I would grow out of, but yet it still persists 20-something years later.
People think it’s weird I don’t want kids. They call me selfish and they’d be right. I like my life. I can’t even handle having a dog because I enjoy not being responsible for someone or something else. It’s just how it is. Maybe I’ll change, maybe I won’t. I’m happy at the moment because there’s freedom without children–financially, emotionally, mentally, and sexually.
Without children, women are free to engage in the act that can make them as much as possible, but of course, not actually have them. There’s no waiting until the kids go to sleep or go to their friends. We’re not exhausted because we had to tend to them all day or be limited to the where, when and how of our lovemaking. I, for one, don’t enjoy being inhibited and would hate for a child to get in the way of my sex life. There it is.

But, children not only limit our available sex making time, they also cause our sex drive to dwindle. Livestrong reported that women in their 20s with children under the age of 6 saw their disinterest in sex double or triple. Not only can you not have it, now you don’t even want to have it. I wouldn’t either if there were multiple kids running around and screaming all day.
Children also want to meddle in things. I remember being a kid and going over to my friend’s house one day. We were rifling through her mom’s closet looking for something–nothing to be exact. We stumbled upon her purple vibrator. At the time, we had no idea what it was. We pulled it out, stared at it with wonder and then put it back. It was only years later that I realized what we had found and was disturbed by the fact that we were handling it.
While I’m not one to leave my sex toys out in the open, I don’t want to have to worry about little hands grabbing at my near and dear sexual friends. I love being able to freely order from adameve.com without having to rush the box into my bedroom and tuck it away from curious minds and prying fingers. There’s no explanation to be given and no one to hide it from.
And finally, remember all those times people walked in on you in college? No? Was that just me? Maybe. Whatever. Did you ever walk in on your parents when you were a kid and it scarred you for a long time?There’s something beautiful about knowing that you don’t have to worry about doing that to anyone, especially a 5-year-old who thinks mommy is getting hurt.
I know plenty of married couples who have wonderful sex lives, but I like to think that me and other women without children are pampering their sexual side with a lifestyle that is a little less inhibited, a little more spontaneous and a little more fulfilling. But that’s just me being selfish again…
