White Lace with Garter Straps

I had never had an orgasm before. I was one of those women who didn’t have that. I was nineteen, twenty and I had been with this guy who it just seemed like he didn’t want to do that with me and I was conscious of that…that it seemed like it took me so long…it took me half an hour, sometimes forty minutes and I would be lying there worrying about how much time I was taking…and then I met my future husban…and he was totally into me and kept telling me he loved making love to me…one time I bought this bustier with the garters…and it was an early date…early in our relationship… and all night he kept lifting up my skirt a bit and seeing the garter straps and it was like…something that was going to happen later. It was like we were sort of making love all night…that’s how it felt. And I felt like I had time…I just had time to be there and it could happen. I felt really sure in this. And I felt almost like someone else, but still me and I felt like it could happen. And it did happen.
