Lust

As I jogged past the brush it was the bicycle that first caught my eye. Laying down by the trail. And the backpack. Probably kid's playing after school. As I jogged past I saw out of the corner of my eye. A young woman, naked except for the long blond hair covering her face and the white brassier unclasped in the front. She was straddling her mostly clothed boyfriend lying back in the grass. It was a quick glimpse.

The voyeur in me wanted to turn back and gawk. I didn't. I ran on and gave them their privacy. They may or may not have seen me but I wanted to preserve for them the illusion that I didn't see them. That they got away with it.

Young people get hassled over so many things. Sneaking off for sex is a lot better than sneaking off for cigarettes, booze, or drugs. So long as they are smart enough to use protection that is. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt because it was so refreshing to be reminded of young lust.

At that age sex is exciting and mysterious. It is the big taboo it that everyone thinks about and everyone except you is supposedly doing. Everything about sex is new and interesting. How to find it, the feelings of it, the intricate workings of bra clasps. Young experimenting has a thrill that adult games in our thirties lack.

My jog left me feeling energized, pumped up for the day. I couldn't tell if it was the exercise or the erotic peek at young lust that raised my spirits.

Ahhh, those were the days... Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
