Provocative or provoke? (Poll)

Two words. One adjective. One verb.

Provocative: /prəˈvɒkətɪv/ (adj) – intended or intending to arouse sexual desire or interest
Provoke: /ˌprɒvəˈkeɪʃ(ə)n/ (vb) – stimulate or give rise to (a reaction or emotion, typically a strong or unwelcome one) in someone.

Ok. I’m cherry picking definitions here, but they are the definitions that concur with my perception of the words typical meaning. A provocative smile says come to bed. To provoke someone is to willfully attempt to illicit a response from them. Surely?

In a few weeks time my Wife and I have three whole days to ourselves. No parenting to do. No work to attend. The plan has been to have a city break. Some Us Time. Most likely we’ll stay in a hotel.
We’ve not had any sexual contact in something like six months and have only slept in the same bed once in three months.

At therapy last week we did n’t talk about sex. I could kick the hornet’s nest, but frankly, I’d rather the hornets exited in an orderly manner

My pubes need waxing. Normally I’d request a small triangle of fuzz just above my cock as I don’t really like completely bald, be that on me, partners or pornstars. But I’m minded of a weekend break We had before We were married. There must have been some sexual contact, because I think the conversation went something like this:

Her: Do you shave Down There?
Me (noncommittally) : Sometimes.
Her: Well I hope you don’t get waxed.

As this was said in a supremely unthreatening tone, I’ve always taken that to mean I hope you don’t get waxed because that would surely be painful, as opposed to I hope you don’t get waxed because that would mean you were getting your junk out in front of someone else.

That was the last time She expressed any interest at all in my pubes.

One + Two + Three = A or B

[There should be a poll showing here, so you can vote on Option A or Option B. There may be some technical issues depending on your browser settings. If you can’t see it, leave your vote as a comment.]

  1. My choice obviously has little to do with provoking your wife. It’s more to do with what I’d prefer…
    And of course, you should listen to what your gut tells you on the day. Aside from “Ouch!!” that is! 😉
