This is a flash fiction story about love, sex, marriage and friendship.

It was a Steelers Sunday morning in September in an upper middle class neighborhood in Pittsburgh. Sandy Simon was visiting her best friend and next door neighbor Debbie Rawlings. Later that day, Debbie and her husband Sam were coming over to the Simons’ back lawn for a barbecue before watching the Steelers on the Simons’ HDTV. Sandy and Debbie sat at the kitchen table drinking coffee. It was going to be a beautiful day. Both women had on black and gold Steelers jerseys. Through the screen door and the screen of the kitchen window came the sound of small birds chirping in the trees.

Debbie was saying, “I guess I shouldn’t complain after twenty-one years of marriage. After having two children I can’t expect excitement. But I did hope once Suzy and Brian left for college Sam and I would have more time for each other. You know, to be more intimate.”

“I’m lucky in that way,” Sandy said. “My only real complaint is Joe wants to do it all the time.”

“You’re complaining because he wants to do it all the time?”

“He wants to do it at inappropriate times. We joined this adult entertainment video club. I mean it was embarrassing sitting on the sofa and watching this stuff with my husband. And in the better made videos everyone’s young and beautiful with these great bodies but they’re really not doing anything you and I haven’t done.”

“I know about adult films.  And I was pretty wild when I was young but I’ve never been to an orgy.”

“Ah, well, that’s another story.”

“You’ve been in an orgy?”

“Long before I met Joe.”

“Sandy! What was it like?”

“I’d rather not talk about it.”

“You can’t talk about it with me?”

“Deb, you’re my best friend. Not my priest. Okay? Anyway, adult videos are becoming mainstream. They’re everywhere. Maybe you and Sam should think about them as a marriage tool.”

“Where you really in an orgy?”

“I was just a teenager. Give it a rest.”

“Sex videos.”

Sandy said, “It can’t hurt. Since the kids left for Penn State I’ve been getting stuffed.”

“You are so bad.”

“Oh, no, girl. I’m not bad. I’m very, very good.”

The two friends laughed and drank their coffee.

About two hours later, when Sandy was in her own kitchen and before the start of the 1:00 pm Steelers game, Joe came downstairs into the kitchen. Sandy was standing at the kitchen table surveying what was on it: a plate of sliced onions, one of sliced tomatoes, jars of mustard, mayo and relish. There were packages of hamburger and hot dog buns. There were two jars of Polish Dill Spears. There was a 64-ounce container of potato salad. The Rawlings were bringing the ribs. Two other couples were bringing hamburger patties and hot dogs and other items. Everybody was bringing beer.

“Good morning, sleepy head,” Sandy said to Joe. He was wearing a black and gold Steelers jersey, too.

He patted her butt and kissed her cheek. He slid behind her, put his arms around her waist and began kissing the back of her neck and grinding on her.

“Joe, what are you doing?”

He began fondling her. “Come up stairs and look at this.”

“We don’t have time for that,” she said.

“It’s only three minutes long.”

“Let me get you out of the kitchen before one of the neighbors see us.”

Upstairs, she sat on the bed with him. On the small screen a woman wearing only a garter belt, black stockings and high heel sandals was on her hands and knees on a bed in a nicely furnished bedroom. She wasn’t a young woman but still attractive and she had an attractive body. She was looking behind her… After awhile there was a closeup on a man’s face. He was around the woman’s age and he was enjoying himself. Sandy thought, they work out. 

The couple changed positions…

The couple changed positions again…

Then the couple was on the sofa of a nicely furnished living room…

    Hi, Mary: I’m happy the way the story turned out. It was nice to deal with two loving couples. And they lived happily ever after.

    No, lillyrose; but I have written several orgy stories. They lost me my Adsense account.

    This must be an extremely literary story because I have to admit, I don’t quite understand…
