Thanksgiving, Sex, & Recipe!

How many of us think about sex when Thanksgiving rolls around? Aren't your days filled with menu planning, inviting dinner guests, food shopping, preparing some items ahead for "the big day", etc.?

I guess sex could be a great stress relief option, but who has time? Aren't you exhausted days before the day of (especially if you're feeding more than a small army of people), and for days after? Some might even go so far as to say "Thanksgiving dinner is better than sex...but, of course, that would never suit a romance reader or author! Men...those guys from "Mars"...might have a different opinion, however!

The following (minus some images and with a few modifications from me) comes from


You're sure to get at least one of your favorite dishes.

The turkey never suffers from modesty.

You can nibble before dinner even if Mom sees you.

You are expected to pass the dishes around.

There are always at least two kinds of desert, with or without whipped cream.

They give you the day off WITH pay to have dinner.

Thanksgiving dinner is a "sure" thing.

Seconds are encouraged. Take home, too!

You're expected to fall asleep after dinner. (for men)

And the number 1 reason why Thanksgiving dinner is better than sex:
You are EXPECTED to watch football BEFORE and AFTER dinner! (again, for men).

Happy Thanksgiving!
