I thought that going to bed could mean a little more than thrashing around all night in wild ecstasy. I thought it could mean cuddling and toasty warmth, sharing one's innermost needs and fears. That's what gettin' naked truly means to me. That's what sex truly is. I'm sorry. It is too bad. I guess you don't ever want to get totally naked with me.
