How One Woman Asks for Sex

Last week’s cartoon,   about something scary, deep in the woods,  is here.  All rights reserved, and content including cartoons is © Donna Barstow 2014,  My updated website is Donna Barstow Cartoons. And Like me  on Facebook to get notified of new cartoons. Thanks!

Today’s cartoon is about the silly things we say when we’re hungry for chocolate, or terribly in love, or both. Does this woman want to have deeply satisfying sex, or feed the little girl inside her?

Of course, this is a take-off on Freud’s concept of a Freudian slip, when you expect to say one thing, and something different comes out of your mouth. I’m unable to reveal whether this has ever happened to me.
