Surprise Saturday: Chapter 7

Stephen brought her back to the larger topic ”So from what you are saying, all the people who come to the summer pool parties we go to are swingers or poly or whatever. Right?”

Sue nodded, “Yes pretty much. Even in the poly circle there are sub groups who tend to mostly play among themselves. You may have noticed the pool parties at the Pulaski’s have older couples like the Kramers and McSherry’s. While Vivian has worked to bring in some new younger couples you have seen at her pool parties the last few years, most of the younger people you see are children of the older poly group.”

Stephen nodded. Now that she told him, he saw it, but it was just one more thing in front of his nose that he had missed. Still he had to say, “I just don’t see how we guys never suspected about all the sex. The clues were right in front of us yet apparently only Dianna saw them”

“Were there other clues?” Sue asked.

“They are only clues now looking back. But like I said, I think both Kate and Dianna have been seeing more than we have. They tried to point them out, but we just couldn’t see.”

“Like what?” she asked

“We could see there was something you didn’t want the kids to see or know about. We just did not know what it was. But we didn’t think that was weird since adults do that kind of thing all the time. Like those summer pool parties, they are loaded with clues we just didn’t put together. So we all know we do them every year: the Pulaski’s for Memorial Day, the Flint’s for 4th of July, and until they broke up we went to Gill’s house for Labor Day” He did not mention it but the last two years the Labor Day party had been at the McCurry’s. “Like you said each party has a few different people, but the core is the same ten or twelve families. We kids knew who were the families that made up that central group; but no one let us kids know how you all know each other, other than from the parties. We assumed the big Halloween Party, the New Year’s Party and the Valentine parties were with the same people, but we never imagined the idea of swinger parties at a hotel like you said.”

Sue nodded, I didn’t know you guys had thought this through so much.”

“All five of us talked about it a lot. And we realized that while sometimes there were twenty or more kids at the pool parties, if you include everything from baby’s to high schoolers, we could tell we were tag-alongs. The parties were not kid’s parties at all and like half the people didn’t even bring kids. I think Gil was the first one to notice that those parties were the only time we ever saw our mother’s wearing thong bikinis unless it was just our families at one of their pools. Early last summer Dianna actually said that you all might be swingers. Collin and I dismissed it and said she’d been looking at too much porn. Even we know that most of what we see on porn is not real and we pretty much assumed all the videos talking about swingers was just made up. And she’s a real porn fiend. According to her brother she’s been eating it up since she was about twelve. So we figured that is why she even thought to say you were swingers.”

Sue took note. Sure she knew Stephen jerked to porn, but to hear him say that porn was so much part of their lives that even Dianna, younger than Kate by half a year, has been looking at it regularly for over two years made her think. Was porn as much part of the teenage experience, even in middle school, as rock music was in her day? Perhaps it was. From what she’d learned today her kids and Collin were more sexually knowledgeable than she’d imagined. But she was not sure that knowledge was all that unusual when she was their age, she just had not been a part. Clearly they knew more about sex than she could have fathomed when she was in high school.

Dianna was the only one of the four kids Stephen hadn’t talked about having sex. Likely she was sexually active by now too. If she was, surely Stephen knew all about it, but she didn’t want to put him on the spot by asking. Sue recalled back when those four were still potty training; she went to her first Poly Circle Christmas party at the Pulaski’s. Just in passing she had heard that while she was screwing her brains out at that party there was a parallel party at the McCurry’s for the teenage kids. She later asked someone about it.

She was told that the teenage children of the Pulaski’s, the McCurry’s, the Kramer’s and Lopez’s had their own Christmas party the same night of the adult party. At the time she was closer in age to those high school kids than she was their parents. Perhaps that is why even then, she saw the good sense in it. It was called The Safer Sex Christmas Party and all the gifts they swapped had a safe sex theme. She was told that twelve teenagers were being chaperoned by two college age kids of the poly circle members. Most but not all the attendees were children of circle members since five of the kids had brought dates. She’d seen the logic and practicality, but at the time her kids were too young to even imagine them that age, or being sexually active. That was then, but today, due to what she was beginning to think of as a miracle, she was not only coming clean about her open marriage; but she was learning how her own kid’s sexual values mirrored her own. They had been learning all about her positive view about casual sex even if neither she nor they knew they were. Perhaps she should help organize a Christmas party this year for the teenage kids. Certainly in the larger swinger circle there were far more than a dozen high school age children. Those kids were likely as sexually active as hers and Vivian’s. What a great way to help those friends open up to their kids?

Though all this was going on in her head, she didn’t say anything as Stephen went on. She noted he had stopped masturbating, but she didn’t ask why. He sat up and said “Oh, just to let you know all the guys, even the ones who are older than us, have talked about your tits and ass for years. Not just yours but all the moms at those parties. Even Mrs. Pulaski, Mrs. Eisenstein, Mrs. Lopez and Mrs. McCurry get looks and boners. Damn Mom, Mrs. Eisenstein might even be old enough to be my grandmother, but that crochet one piece thong she wears, the one that you can see everything through, gave all the guy’s wood.”

Sue chuckled “I’m sure she would be more than pleased to hear that. Anyone else Francine would tell that suit is too revealing for her Memorial Day, but Stella is sort of the grand dame of our group and she can do what she wants. And yes she does look good in it.” She couldn’t’ help adding “And when she takes it off she is even more impressive. It’s hard to believe she has seven grandkids and the oldest is not much younger than you.”

Stephen liked the thought. “I’d bone her in a heartbeat if I had the chance. That is if I weren’t with Jenny.”

Sue smiled, “Give it a few more years and if you ask nicely I’m sure she would be happy to. But I’ve never known her to do it with any of the next generation until they are in their twenties. She is more scrupulous than Maria Lopez or Janice McCurry, either of them would probably jump at the chance at the Memorial Day party if you asked.”

They both laughed and Stephen tucked yet another nugget of information away. This was just not like he was talking to his mother at all. So it was easy to continue on. “It’s weird that all of a sudden I now see your friends as, like sexy in the way I’d like to do it with them. Before today there really had been a separation between your friends and younger women in my mind. Though I knew other guys didn’t see it that way. I’m sure I’ve never told you about it, but I have a distinct memory of the first time I realized that guys who were not grownups, just the guys older than me, saw you as someone they would like to screw. We were at the Pulaski’s big pool party and Rob Pulaski, the Lopez boys, and …what was his name? Zach, I don’t remember who his parents were. I heard them talking pretty dirty, at least to me at the time it was dirty. They looked at you and Mrs. Flint and Mrs. Kenopple and said things that made it clear they thought you three were super milfs. It was three summers ago, I guess it will be four this year, so I was thirteen. Rob and the other older guys were still in high school. I heard them talking about all the moms, not just you and your friends. They were comparing their tits and asses and stuff. I couldn’t help but listen. It was the first time I really understood that guys saw you different than I did. They saw you as just a hottie, not at all like a mom. To me no matter what you wear, how much skin you show, you are just Mom not a milf. Well, I guess until today. You are still mom and I can’t see you the way those guys do, but I won’t see you quite the same way again. That’s not bad, but it is true.”

She just shook her head “I know. I won’t see you as a child ever again.”

They both thought on that for a moment. How much will this event change their lives? But Stephen went on. “But this was almost four years ago. I understood why they looked at the McCurry’s twin daughters like that. Sure they were mothers, in that they had babies, but I’d seen them at those parties for years before they were moms. I remember Joliette and Marcella for sure. They might be the first two females I ever noticed as being…I’m not sure hot is the right word. Perhaps they were the first females I looked at as females, if you know what I mean. But even when I saw Joliette posing for you in November it was different because she was still not like a mother in my book, even though I know she has two kids now. But back then, to the older guys, they didn’t see you any different than Joliette & Marcella. That was weird.”

Sue couldn’t help but ask “And, what did they say about me?”

Stephen laughed, “It was the first time I’d ever heard the word milf. And pretty much all the moms with kids who were not grown were milfs to them. But why I remember that so clearly is that Rob bragged that you had agreed to boink him before the end of the party. I was just old enough to understand what that meant; but I knew that his brag was not only impossible, it was just gross. The other guys in the group told him he was full of shit and that he would get a chance to screw you when pigs fly. So I never once thought there was a word of truth to it. It was just how he looked at you that was weird.”

He looked at his mom. Her face, well his face, said something. A light came on. “Did you? Did you fuck him?”

Though she’d had thousands of sexual experiences with men and women of all ages, this was one she remembered well. And not just because his mother had given her a print of the photo she had taken of the two of them laying in the bed (barely covered) after they were done.

Rob had been skinny and very socially awkward. Because he was four years older than Stephen it was unlikely that her son realized that. For some reason, of all the women he saw at his pool, he latched on to her when he was fourteen. He would be underfoot anytime she was at their place, but it was sort of cute like a lost puppy.

Rob was sort of an “oops” baby. The oldest of their other three children was ten years older than him and they had not planned on any more. The Pulaski’s chose not to even try to determine his paternity though they knew it could not possibly be Will himself. As far as they were concerned Rob was the son of William and Francine Pulaski and that was that. It was helpful that he looked so much like his mother as to keep down any unwanted questions. Sue had noticed over the years that Rob was treated unusually well by the poly group as sort of a child of the community.

While not as open as the McCurry’s the Pulaski’s were far less concerned about secrecy with Rob than they had their older kids. After all he was the only one in the family who didn’t know. Since he was young he’d seen men, women and couples go into his parents’ bedroom for hours on end. And as the years wore on, his mother was less and less concerned about walking around the house in the nude. When they spelled out to him they were polyamorous and had a group of friends with whom they had sex when he was thirteen, he let them know he had already figured that out on his own. After that they declared themselves nudist, not just in their home and their pool, but the family went to nudist resorts in the summer. They were very careful around whom they went nude at their house though.

Additionally, as the McCurry’s had done, the Pulaski’s ceased hiding sex from Rob at that time. So he began to see how adults interacted in new ways. As a very young teenager, he witnessed how adults behaved when working up to proposing & initiating sex, foreplay and engaging in a whole range of sexual acts. As part of the circle, Sue knew that before he was sixteen he had seen her having sex a good many times with a good many partners. However neither she nor the Pulaski’s ever removed their swim suit when Sue’s kids were with her at the pool. She was aware though that on several occasions Stephen had found Francine sun batheing when he arrived to clean their pool. She told Sue she had not made a big deal about it and just covered up each time. Stephen had never mentioned it, she only knew about that since Francine had told her. Looking back she could not find a good reason why she had not OK’ed nudity when Kate and Stephen were there. Now she saw that as a mistake, or at least a missed opportunity. The Pulaski’s taught Rob to keep family business in the family. His boast that he would have sex with Sue was a rare breach of the family agreements.

A few weeks past his seventeenth birthday Rob was still behind his peers in physical and social development, so he struggled with fitting in at school. But perhaps because at home he was treated as an adult in many ways, he seemed very comfortable with adults. When had turned sixteen, he first asked Sue if he could have sex with her. She still laughed to herself thinking back about how earnest he was. She was at their pool sunning beside his mother, nude. He was two months past his fifteenth birthday, less than a hundred pounds of skin and bone sporting a full erection. His fully grown penis looked odd on his rather juvenile looking body. Despite his appearance, he was very smart and observant. Imitating the strait forward way he’d seen men and women ask others to have sex, he looked Sue right in the eye without a hint of embarrassment. He told her that he was still a virgin and he wanted her to be his first sex partner. Of course he meant that very minute. She could have laughed at the ridiculousness of it or cried at how pathetic it also was. She did neither. She looked him back in the eye and thanked him for thinking of her, but she let him know clearly she could not have sex with him until he was at least seventeen.

His mother later thanked her for her polite but candid response. What they did not know at the time was that Rob took that to heart as a promise. For the next year he continued to follow her around. A few times she was sure he was spying & masturbating when she had sex at his house or by the pool; but she never said anything to him. He had turned seventeen in early May, and it just so happened the first time he had seen her was at the Memorial Day pool party. In a repeat of what he had done the year before, he again walked up to her; this time she was in the Pulaski’s kitchen helping his mother with the food. He was less juvenile looking than the first time and fully dressed, though he could still pass for a middle school boy. She knew right off what he was going to ask, but she waited for him to do so. Then again looking directly into his eyes, she said she would love to, but he would need to wait till the party died down. She was impressed with his self control. He simply thanked her and suggested they meet in his parent’s room at 5:30PM. She agreed. When he walked away, his mother hugged Sue and thanked her profusely.

At 5:30 she walked into Will and Francine’s bedroom. She’d had sex in that bed at least fifty times over the prior years. It was a California King with a faux canopy that hid that there were mirrors over the bed. Rob was there, already fully nude with an erection. She knew how long he had been waiting for this moment, so she was determined to make it special.

Unlike the year before when she was still slightly taller than him, this time he topped her by at least four inches. He was clearly petrified. She stood in front of him and softly kissed him on the lips. “It’s OK. I will let you know what to do at each step. Your body will fill in the gaps naturally.” Then again kissed him softly, but let the kiss linger.

For the next hour she introduced him to a whole new world. She hadn’t even gotten his penis in her mouth when he blew the first time. She was afraid he was going to melt down, so she scooped up the semen from her breasts and put it in her mouth. That seemed to calm him. The second ejaculation went down her throat and the third in her vagina. All in the space of an hour. She enjoyed the whole process so much that she offered to continue his “lessons” the next week, and the next. For the rest of the summer and through his senior year of high school Sue had a weekly “tea” with Francine Pulaski. She missed some of the Thursday afternoons but she made most of them. She thoroughly enjoyed planning for each of Rob’s “after school lessons.” He was always so eager, compliant and grateful. Francine seemed almost as grateful as her son. She knew he lacked the confidence and social skills that came so easily to her older children. Fourteen months after that first time, the eighteen year old who left for The Citadel to become a cadet was far more poised and self assured than would seem possible by a single year’s passage. Sue felt some pride that she had helped him in ways far beyond sex lessons.

By the time he was an upper classman at the Citadel the scrawny scared kid had become a solid young man and leader at the South Carolina military college. Long gone were the lessons. The last time Sue met Rob in his parents’ bedroom, over Christmas break, he easily lifted her by the thighs to hold her in the air while he drove his cock into her. She was exhilarated by the ride and the knowledge she had made it possible.

All those memories shot through her mind in a matter of seconds. “Yes,” she told Stephen. “When he ask me if I would have sex with him before the party I told him I would. I was honored that he wanted me to be his very first sexual partner. You never heard any more about it because he knew our actions were not for public knowledge.”

Stephen thought he should not be surprised, but he was. Rob had been telling the truth. ‘Mom had really fucked Rob Pulaski when he was my age!’. He asked “Why?”

Sue smiled. “I thought it was the right thing to do. He needed confidence and I knew I could help. Sex is good for a good many things, and in his case it helped him overcome his self doubt. I spent time with him almost every week throughout his senior year at Francis Marion. I know it really helped him. He is now a supremely confident leader in the cadet corps at the Citadel. I’m actually very proud of what I did for him.”

Stephen had never thought of it that way. His mother was far more interesting than he had ever imagined, and he knew his mom was the most interesting mother he knew even before this day. “That’s cool Mom. It really is. Are you still doing it with him when he is home from school?”

Sue nodded.

“Did his mother know? I mean back then.”

“Of course she did. I wouldn’t have done it otherwise. She thanked me many times for helping him.”
