They must have fallen asleep. When Joy woke, the sun was starting to stream through the windows. What seemed like a nice cuddle last night now felt awkward right now. Joy carefully slipped out of the bed and put on her robe. She went downstairs to put on the coffee. What had she been thinking last night? Daniel must be terribly frustrated after everything that didn’t happen. It was then that she knew he was behind her. Turning around quickly, she asked, “Daniel, what are you doing up so early?”
“Well I fell asleep with a beautiful woman by my side and woke and she was gone. I had to go in search of her.” He said as he walked slowly toward her. He was dressed in his night clothes, and Joy remembered his body against hers from last night.
“I’m making some coffee, if you want some.” Joy said nervously as she watched her husband walking up to her.
“Coffee would be nice, but I’ll take a kiss to begin with.” As he said this, he brought his hand up to cup the back of her head and then leaned in and gently kissed her on the mouth. As he leaned back, he looked at her questionably. “Joy, I hope you’re not feeling badly about what we did last night. I really enjoyed being with you and I hope you enjoyed it as well.”
“I did. I think things just got a little too intense and I wasn’t quite prepared to feel the way I felt. I mean, it shouldn’t be this hard with you.” She poured two cups of coffee, one black for him and the other with cream and sugar for her.
“Joy, honey. You are going to have a lot of conflicting emotions for a while, and that is normal. Don’t let guilt be one of them. I’m a big boy; I know how to take care of myself if that becomes an issue.”
“Really? How would you do that?” Joy asked with an earnest expression on her face.
“Joy, I’m talking about masturbation. Surely you know what I’m talking about.”
Joy blushed. “Of course. That was covered in high school sex ed. I just never got the mechanics of how it worked.”
“Oh my God, you are killing me Joy. I would give you a proper demonstration, but now is not the time for this. When you are up to it, this is going to be the first thing we do together; to each other.”
“I know you had sex with other women before me; I get the impression you got all the experience in that department, where I had none.”
“Joy, I was twenty-six when we met, so yeah, there had been a fair share of women. None could hold a candle to you. It means everything that I was your first. Having Ben so early, along with your natural shyness, kind of stunted the growth of our sex life. But hearing that you have been yearning for more intimacy makes me so happy. I want to be close to you in every way, including sexually.
They walked into the den with their coffee and sat on the sofa together. Daniel took Joy’s cup and set both cups on the coffee table.
“Joy, I’m going to kiss you now. I’m giving you fair warning in case you don’t want me to.” When Joy remained silent, Daniel leaned in and kissed Joy softly on the mouth. As she scooted closer to Daniel, he wrapped his arms around her and deepened the kiss. Joy brought her hands up to stroke his hair and face. The next thing Joy knew she had instinctively straddled Daniel’s lap and was taking the lead in the kissing. Daniel’s hands rubbed down her back and cupped her bottom. Soon Joy felt Daniel’s throbbing erection.
“Sorry, guess I got carried away; I didn’t mean to get you aroused.”
“Joy, don’t ever apologize for being sexual. I’m going to go up for a shower and take care of things. Finish your coffee.” Daniel stood to leave.
“Wait, do you mean you’re going to masturbate?” Joy asked with an embarrassed demeanor.
“Yeah, Joy. I love you and understand we cannot have sex right now, but I’m pretty worked up.”
“Why don’t I come up and help you? I mean, you can show me what to do, if you want, that is.” Joy rushed on before she could sound even more ridiculous than she must already sound.
“Baby, you don’t have to do that. But if you really want to join me, God yes, I would absolutely love it.” The smile on his face and the sparkle in his eyes encouraged her to follow him upstairs.
“Come take a shower with me, baby.” Daniel stripped and started the shower running, and then climbed into the tub with a smile.
Joy tentatively stripped off her nightclothes, put her hair up, and climbed into the tub with Daniel. He had already soaped up and was rinsing off his body. He then poured some soap in his hand and began to rub his penis with it. He moaned with pleasure, causing Joy to break out into an all-body sweat. She gingerly placed her hand over Daniel’s, stroking along with him. He placed her hand directly on him and used his hand to guide her in pressure and grip. Soon Joy was stroking Daniel all on her own, creating a gnawing ache in her. She stepped closer and Daniel leaned down to capture her mouth in a sensuous kiss. Just then he moaned into her mouth as he ejaculated onto her abdomen.
Daniel leaned against her for a moment to catch his breath. He then stood up and smiled. “That was absolutely fantastic Joy. I think we’d better trade places in the shower and get you washed up. Daniel soaped up her loofah with her body wash and started washing her body. Between the shower and his washing, she felt like she was getting a sexy massage. Daniel used his hand with some soap to wash between her legs. It felt good, but Joy felt herself drawing away from the feeling. She turned around to rinse off the soap. She felt Daniel’s arms go around her.
“Joy, it’s okay. I know this has got to be hard for you. We will take this as slow as you need to go. I have to admit I can’t wait to show you how masturbation ‘works’ for a woman.”
She turned back around and hugged Daniel long and hard. “I am sorry I flaked out on you; but I really enjoyed learning how a man masturbates.”
“Yeah, I have to say I am enjoying your education.” Daniel said with a twinkle in his eyes as he dried off. “Now I have got to shake a leg to get to work on time. What do you have planned today?”
“I’m going to pick up ben and take him school shopping, get his hair trimmed, just have an ‘all about Ben’ day.”
“Sounds nice. You sure you’re up to having Ben back?”
“Yes, I am more than ready and capable of taking care of Ben. I know your mother’s been whispering in your ear, but she doesn’t know what she is talking about.” Joy finished drying off and took a brush to her hair.
Daniel took the brush and used it more gently. “I am not worried about what my mother thinks; I just want to make sure you’re up to it.”
“Stop worrying; I’ll be fine.”
“Okay, babe. Just remember you can run him back over to Mom’s if you start to feel overwhelmed.”
Daniel went out to dress for work, leaving Joy to stare at herself in the mirror. She would take care of Ben and be just fine. One of their first stops would be the drugstore for a Xanax refill.
