As her seven-year marriage came to an end, Nadia Bokody decided to make the most of her single life by devoting a week to having one night stands. In a bid to get her mojo back, the Australian writer had been feeling bad after spending the last months of the relationship eating takeaway and binge-watching Netflix ,and want to change all that.
After confiding in a colleague about her frustration, Nadia’s pal suggested that she text a guy to ask outright if he’s fine with a no strings attached kind of fun. Nadia took her friend’s advice and found herself embarking on a week-long journey of steamy one-night stands and admits she was “exhausted” at the end.
“I got out my phone and began scrolling through my address book.
There he was; Ryan. Cute, though not really my type, we’d had a date a couple of weeks back that had been devastatingly tiresome until he’d leaned in to kiss me and s exual electricity had ignited between us so unexpectedly we’d behaved like a couple of teenagers frantically making out behind the school sheds before calling it a night and never texting one another again.”
Following their rendezvous, Nadia found herself “sobbing hysterically” and wrote:
“It was in that moment it occurred to me that this wasn’t about s ex at all.
It was about the liberation that came with it, to have desires met I’d convinced myself were insignificant in the final stages of my failing marriage.”
The next evening she went to a nightclub and met Ted, who gave her “one of the fastest orgasms of her life.”
She “broke the rules” on Sunday and messaged Matt, a guy who she had Facebook stalked after he asked her for her number.
On Monday she “pushed the boundaries further” and met businesswoman Lisa, who “treated s ex like a tantalizing meal best enjoyed slowly and purposefully.”
Tuesday was Charlie, a guy she had been on several dates with who she claimed was her “s exual soulmate.”
Steve, a serving military man, was Wednesday’s lucky guy and Nadia was very impressed by his “Grecian godlike body.”
By Thursday, Nadia admits she was “exhausted” but still decided to see English guy Ben for the final night of her experiment.
Nadia wrote about her night with Ben:
“I turned on my side to face him, knowing full well I’d never see him again, and feeling somehow strangely empowered in that knowledge.
Though I ached with exhaustion as I closed my eyes to intensify the sensation of Ben’s tired fingers lazily tracing circles over my naked body, my spirit felt paradoxically invigorated.”
After the experiment, Nadia said she finally felt completely comfortable with being single.
“Letting go of everything I knew about love, lust, and sexual gratification in the strange security of transient lovers who knew nothing of me or my history allowed me to find my way back to myself – before I was a wife, a girlfriend, or even someone’s fling. And that was the real pot of gold at the end of my s exual rainbow.”
