Argue Naked



So I went to a sort of Bridal Shower for a colleague Wednesday—I say sort of because really it was more a happy hour get-together in her honor rather than a silly game stuffy affair. But the one wedding-y thing we DID do was each of us around the table gave a piece of advice to the bride. And everybody said mine couldn't be topped, so I thought I'd share it with all of you.

Now I know what you're saying... that Tart looks for ANY excuse to be naked. And you aren't wrong. But this is actually some excellent Tartish relationship wisdom. Know why? It is really hard to be MEAN when you are naked. You are all out there and vulnerable and it just seems like a really stupid time to be rotten for the sake of being rotten... And mean and rotten are two things it is best to AVOID when you argue with your sweet baboo. Because mean rotten things come back to bite you again and again and again. Far better to stick to the topic at hand with a tangible reminder than this is the person you love standing there in all his (or her) glory.

I'm not even the first one who thought of this. There is a website and a book by the name... (I have a book plan, too, but mine is a mystery)

But this stuff works... (provided neither of you is a psychopath)

So there. Now you're smarter.

Sounds like a really great idea to me!
I think it works to the woman's advantage because us guys would be completely distracted.

I'm thinking that with everybody's parts out there an' all, pretty soon that argument is going to take back seat to something else...and you know what they say about make-up sex :)

Great idea, Hart!

Good advice, but I'm thinking if I really wanted to fight, clothes would be on and stay on. Maybe I've been married for too long! :)

I'm not sure what you're talking about is called arguing.

I think arguing naked is a good idea because I'm sure whatever is happening won't END with and argument. Wait. Why argue? Just go straight to the make up sex!

Very smart advice--when naked I feel vulnerable and exposed (pun intended). It's one reason I like Modesty Blaise so much as a great character; she can be buck naked but still remains a tough, focused fighter (against bad guys, at least).

I always won the arguments when I chose naked. However, I'm pretty sure it became a one sided argument of which, I won. That's important. hee hee.

I never thought about this, but good idea. I'm sure my Other would be a-ok with this deal haha
