Seattle facetime hookups

Those adventures have spanned 10 counties and four states and involved roughly 45,000 e-mailed words, 27 phone calls, 36 face-to-face initial dates and 13 actual lovers -- and re-aggravated our carpal tunnel syndrome from all the typing.

Upending the notion of "Casual Encounters" -- as Craigslist dubs its "Just Looking to Get Laid Tonight" category -- we both discovered that casual sex is anything but.

Perhaps because we are highly verbal, our initial Craigslist encounters involved a ream of e-mail.

We are both middle-aged women who have spent the past 11 months sleeping around Craigslist.

At an age when most women were sending their firstborns off to college, we found ourselves -- through chance and circumstance -- single, tumescent and ripe for adventures.

It takes a woman about a thousand words and a condom to get laid on Craigslist.

But for a woman to be laid properly -- by a passionate lover who knows what he's doing -- well, that's a whole different ball game.We were both hungry for intimacy and physical touch after years of wandering in the desert. Lily Penza, 46, had been overweight since her teens and suffered from dangerously low self-esteem.At age 28, she moved in with the first man who looked her way.Terrific e-mail connections don't guarantee a sizzling face-to-face meeting. More than once, last-minute cancellations left us calling one another for support, or just drunk, horny and alone with a DSL connection.Finally, there's the zany sitcom a woman's life becomes when she's juggling multiple lovers: scheduling dates; trying to keep personal data straight on each man; finding enough time after work to shave her legs, dye her hair, exfoliate her skin, apply mascara, and Map Quest the planned meeting spot.So she lost 40 pounds and decided she would make up for lost time.
