Sex with Romaine

Over the course of these last few months, I've had the honor of being a guest on Sirius Radio's OutQ Channel. The show The Derek and Romaine Show, is hosted by two wacky ducks, named Derek and Romaine (what did you think I'd say, Howard and Michelle?). Derek is a writer and he's gay and in a relationship. Romaine is a lesbian, she was one of Matthew Shepard's closest friends, and that's how she became an outspoken activist of LGBT rights - oh, and she also came out really young in a really small town. She's recently single, after suffering through a two year relationship that apparently ended months before it actually ended. *Which, to change the subject for a minute, is quite normal. When I used to ask friends of mine when they first thought my other relationship ended, they all said years before it actually did. And seeing that the relationship lasted nine years, I'd say that yes, that was not only true, but that it was at least four years before we actually ended things that the relationship was over. The good thing about this was that when the relationship finally fell apart we both moved on rather quickly. I was happily dating within two weeks of his departure. I'm not sure about him - but that's where I was at. Still, it took me six years to meet the kind of guy that I wanted to be with.

Anyway, why am I telling you about Derek and Romaine's relationship status? Well, Derek's I just mentioned so that it didn't seem like I was leaving him out. But Romaine, well, Romaine is an aggressive lady who likes to get with the ladies, and I just so happen to be one of those ladies that she wants to get with. Anyway, two weeks ago I was on the show, and of course I was being myself and flirting away with Romaine. She knows I have a boyfriend, but we were talking about how she wanted to sleep with me. So I said that if her listeners emailed me and told me to sleep with her, Jonny (my boyfriend) wouldn't mind, since we have agreed to a few "cheats" over our lifetime (even if we aren't together, the rule still applies) and this wasn't really cheating if it was for a good cause (ratings) and there was an email campaign. I mean c'mon, you can't ignore an email campaign.

Anyway, I was playing up to the radio - sort of, while also enjoying this heavy flirtation. Then last Friday night, at my friend Ducky's bachelorette party, Romaine showed up. She spent the night flirting with me, telling the other ladies at the party how cute she thought I was. She even let me pick out a raffle prize for her, and then she gave it to me as a gift.

As the night progressed and Romaine and I got more and more libatious (a word I just made up to mean drunk and chatty) we got more and more flirtatious. And even though nothing happened, she swore that she'd get listeners to email me and tell me to have sex with her. She must have talked about it last night, her first night on the air since seeing me, because there were a few emails in my inbox this morning.

I haven't done anything with Romaine. I'm not big on the cheating thing, even though, yes, I once fell for a cheater. But, still, now, there's an email campaign in the works, and the pressure to sleep with Romaine.

Not that it's any real pressure. If I were the single girl I had been for so long, this would be a no brainer, but I'm not that girl anymore, and quite frankly, with Jonny, I don't feel the need to be.

So, can I ignore the email campaign for the one I love?
