  7. hi kristy... i am finally posting because now i have a blog for you to look at... if only we lived closer because you rock and i am new to CA and need cool knitting friends. and your stories are impressive. i've read every one.

    ReplyDelete
  8. K - I just read the list you posted (on another blog - The List List) of all your sex partners. Seriously, you need help. I like your writing and I think you have talent..please have more self esteem.

    ReplyDelete
  9. um. i am self-deprecating, but i have pretty good self-esteem.

    i also think that equating a woman who has had x number of partners to a woman who has low self-esteem is antiquated, anti-feminist, and completely unfounded.

    personally, i believe it reflects my comfortability with sex and a healthy approach towards sexuality. i am safe; i am an adult; i make no apologies.

  10. Love your response to anon.

    Go Kristy!

  11. There's nothing wrong with enjoying making out. And if more guys knew how to do it properly you wouldn't need as many.

  12. I've always felt the healthier one's self-esteem is, the less one feels the need to judge others. Anon, perhaps you're projecting.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Happy early Birthday Kristy!!! I love your blog and I think you are such a funny and fabulous person!!

    Hugs, Kisses and Aloha from Hawaii,

  14. Jeez! No one has ever said that a man who sleeps with a lot of women has low self esteem! Can anyone say "projection"?

    ReplyDelete
  15. anon here again. I am not trying to be harsh or anti-feminist..I sorta agree with you, but don't you think 6 one night stands is a bit much?

    ReplyDelete
  16. This seems to be aimed at me, so I'll go ahead and field it. Well you see anon...Wait a minute, SIX one night stands = low self esteem??? Aw crap! I'd love to sit here and debate this with you, but apparently I need to go to a bar to buy drinks for total strangers and beg them to like me. Toodle-loo

  17. Hey at least she had sex 6 times. Give her some credit. She's got that going for her. By the by, nyah nyah you are older than me. I was born July 12 ha-ha-ha I'm 29.

    Youthful and Vibrant,

  18. oh my fucking god. 6 one night stands = too much???

    too much for you, apparently.

    honestly, your views about women and sex are ridiculous.

    here's a thought: if the person having sex is happy with it, then it's the right amount. if she wants more of it, then it's not enough. if she wishes she'd had less of it, then it's too much.

    since kristy said she's happy with her sexual history, then it sure as hell has not been "too much."

    get it????

    ReplyDelete
  19. Dear Anon,

    Are six one night stands enough? For what?

    My list is at least as long as K's-- and the guys on my list have had sex with more people than either of us. And no one is asking them if they have a self esteem problem.

    Personally, I'm much more likely to be sexual with a new person if my self esteem mojo is in place. So I say, fuck on, sisters! Non illigitamus carborundum!

  20. WOW...I was just gonna say bigger pictures are better. Didn't know I was gettin into a fist fight. Kristy ROCKS. I'd buy her a drink on her B-day if I wasn't geographically challenged...

    ReplyDelete
  21. you know, for the record, i had no intention of getting into my sexual history on this blog. that would be why i don't link to that List blog.

    on the other hand, i am not ashamed of anything and i do not make excuses for myself, which is why i didn't delete the anon's comments or keep the List blog completely hidden, either.

    so to answer anon's question -- no.

    and i think the fact that you feel compelled to both quantify *and* judge is far more telling than any list i could ever make.

  22. if u r a-none-mouse u r stoopid....oops!

  23. I wish I had six.... five... four... ONE....

  24. What does privacy mean? What is the difference between wanting privacy and sharing everything? I think everyone judges, but friends stick together thru most good/bad times... except sometimes when wretched drinking becomes problem... rock bottom happens alone. take care of yourself, birthday girl!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hey anon, church is on Sunday. Lookin' forward to some wretched drinking tonight...maybe I'll get to rock a bottom! N~

    ReplyDelete
  26. That's cool, Shull. It's not about church on sunday. it's all about kristy. that's it. and it's all good. more or less.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Go Kristy. We love you for who you are.

  28. original anon again..

    I did not attack k, just expressed an opinion. SO I have different values that k (or all of you it seems). So k - I guess there is no room for a dissenting opinion about your blog? Do you only want readers who adore you no matter what? I like your writing, but I can do w/o the hipper than thou followers of yours.

    Ok girls - let me have it (again).

    ReplyDelete
  29. hi again, anon:

    couple points. first, you are not dissenting about *my* blog, you are dissenting about something i wrote somewhere else. maybe that's splitting hairs, but i don't think so.

    secondly, i am always flattered when people express liking this blog. i do not expect positive feedback, and certainly not solely positive feedback. (which is why i try never to delete any comments.)

    however, i think you did more than state your opinion; you made a judgment call. about me. you did not simply say that you disagree with me or my choices, you said that i have a problem, you called my self-esteem into question, and you expressly asked me to agree with you.

    but i don't. and so i said so.

    as for the other commenters, well, i think that if you are going to bring up a differing viewpoint, you are asking for a dialogue/discussion/argument. and you got one. nothing wrong with that.

  30. Dude Anon:

    You are clearly jealous and totally in love with Kristy. Her life, which is actually hers, is not how you envisioned it to be. so, you are dissapointed with HER life choices. Dude, come to grip and let her live.

  34. I hope that you had a great time last night. I was too cranky to go out.... I regret it already though.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh, and anon? I've had three times that many one-night stands. I have no issues with self-esteem, nor do I make apologies for it. Sex, as long as it's safe, is really a fun way to pass the time. If it feels good, do it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Kristy,
    How much do I love the fact that you keep comments like Anon's on your blog? A lot! It allows the opporunity for some spirited discussions/debates. I find it pretty interesting that the orig. anon commented directly at you and when various other people commented at her/him it didn't seem to appreciated or viewed as dissenting opinions. hmmm? Anyhow - wishing you a very happy, happy birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  37. One of the great things about turning 30 is sex becomes less about drama and more about fun and pleasure - which is what it should be. Enjoy the next ten years, I am!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Shari, that is exactly true... and being sober for it makes it all the more fun and pleasurable. Let Kristy have a great journey! I think of the song "just like a woman" (bob dylan) and guess Kristy might identify with the lyrics... and that's why I think she's vulnerable.

  39. Kristy , Have the best B-day ever , Keep up the great blog and one word of wisdom for whatever its worth.. Good judgement comes from experience and alot of that comes from bad judgement. We love you..Dean

  40. I have never had any one night stands. I am sad.

  41. e said "I find it pretty interesting that the orig. anon commented directly at you and when various other people commented at her/him it didn't seem to appreciated or viewed as dissenting opinions. hmmm?"

    Hmm indeed. e - getting yourself some English lessons before you start your blog mihgt be a good idea. Just a thought- not an opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Original anon again..

    Points made by all. Some incoherent, but whatever.

    k..can we agree to disagree and end this thread already?

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love the way anon now turns to criticizing people's writing skills (even though they probably just quickly posted and don't take the same amount of care as they would when writing a dissertation) and he/she in the same sentence, fails to spell the word "might" correctly. Anon, it seems to me that you might be appreciated more elsewhere. You're not contributing anything positive to anyone here!

    ReplyDelete
  44. original anon here --that was not me! I don't care about "e".

    ReplyDelete
  45. ENOUGH WITH ANONYMOUS!!! Doesn't ANYONE realize you can post by clicking "other" (non-blogger ID, non-anonymous)?? You can put in a name...make up a name if you want to, and you do NOT have to link to a website to do so!

    Kristy,

    I think you should write a separate post telling your readers this. Maybe some people would still choose to hide behind the anonymous tag, but maybe some people will step up and use a friggin name, so that people who want to argue dn't have to say "ORINGINAL anon here" or "that anon was not me!"

    Whew, I just find this tiring. I'm sure half the people that post as anon are just not tech savvy enough to click on the "other" button!

    (P.S. HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY!!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  46. oops, I spelled "original" wrong, and all in caps no less. Well, I was a bit heated. sorry :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

    Just so you know, 30 was my best year up til that point and they just keep getting better.

    You can always call yourself 20-10.
