Baby Boomers,

It's been a couple of months since my last relationship ended.  So, let's say it's been at least a couple of months since the last time I experienced the pleasures of a female partner. Things get pent up. I understand that. But, I had thrown myself into my work and rebalancing my life, so I hadn't given women or sex much room for thought.

That is until this morning when I found myself mmmm.....

And what triggered this precipitous action to happen........ Madonna's breasts.

I know what you are thinking.

Really, Madonna's breasts?

Let me step back and I'll explain.

It was another typical morning.  I jumped out of bed at 5 AM with a head full of ideas for my blog.  In the throesof research, I ran across an article on, of all places, the Huffington Post titled "Why It Took Me Until My 50's To Feel OK About Masturbation" written by Erica Jagger.  It's an interesting confession of her personal triumph over the negative cultural connotations of sexual self exploration.  

Erica hosts her own blog forged with the purpose of igniting conversation about the sexual power of Baby Boomer women.   You can join her by visiting www.asexywomanofacertainage.com. 

OK, I'm not ashamed to admit that when reading her article I got a little aroused.  Hey, I was reading about women masturbating and it has been a while since I have had any, ah.......satisfaction.

Anyway, I continued on reading a few more articles in Huffington post when I run across a blog from Stephanie Marcus, the Entertainment Editor for Huff Post titled "Madonna Poses Topless For Interview, Talks Drug Use."  

Right there, in the middle of the article is a photo of Madonna, lying on the floor in black nylons and bustier and a white blouse completely unbuttoned, exposing her breasts.

Here is a well respected global news outlet and a 56-year-old pop star breaking every rule that our chaste, moral and at times extremely archaic society has set.

  • Posting nude pictures of a woman freely and publicly
  • Posting nude pictures of an influential Pop Icon
  • Posting nude pictures on a dignified and venerable world wide news site

and even worse..........

  • Posting nude pictures of a 56 year old woman.

What's happening to this world?  Since when has it become mainstream journalism to post provocative photos of senior citizens?

I don't know, but I am definitely proud of The Huffington Post for having the courage to do it.  And you know what?  She looks good.  She looks real good.  I would never have guessed she was as old as I am.  

So what triggered my urge when I first looked at her photo?  I mean, she's not a beauty in the neoteric sense.  She's doesn't have the hottest body or prettiest face.  You wouldn't see this picture in a Victoria's Secret ad.  Her skin is untanned and pale. You could tell her breasts have lost that youthful firmness as they lay cupped in her bustier.  Her nipples are typical, even ordinary.  

But this photo of her exudes raw sexuality.  The bustier looks provocative on her.  Her breasts are not perfect, but they are real, authentic, honest.  These are the same breasts you could see on any woman; a friend, a neighbor a co-worker.   She looked damn sexy to me, especially after I read she is 56 years old, my age.

Well, the bottom line is the picture was arousing and........well you know the rest.  I guess it had been a while.

So I pose this question to other men my age.  How often has this happened to you?  

And how about you, Erica Jagger?  Do you get so excited when you see a sexy photo of George Clooney or Channing Tatum on the internet that you find yourself heading to the top shelf of your closet and the little red and black box that houses your purple wand?

I hope I am not alone here.

Please leave your comments below.

Now, I just have to get that Madonna picture out of my mind.  I have stuff to do today.
