The concept of "adulting" has really embedded itself in the collective consciousness of late, somehow capturing the spirit of my generation. We never stop feeling like a kid but we are required to do all the boring stuff associated with being an adult. So,how does one define "grown-ass woman" then, if we're all (really) no better than a bunch of toddlers with bank accounts? In short, grown-ass women have a handle on their business, which means there are things every grown-ass woman is not afraid to ask for in bed.
Of course, a grown-ass woman handles things outside of the bedroom, too. In fact, if a grown-ass woman, as the adult she is, wants to sit naked on her couch drinking root beer floats at 3 a.m., that's exactly what she's going to do. She's also going to wake up (even if it means being exhausted) and go to her job and kill that high-level meeting that she's been preparing for, for months. Being a grown-ass woman, you see, is all about gracefully balancing the rights and responsibilities of being over 18 years of age. It takes practice, but eventually, with work, we get there.
A grown-ass woman's defining characteristic between the sheets (or anywhere she's choosing to bang) can be summarized in one word: honesty. She is honest with herself and her partners about desires, safety, and what is and is not possible for everyone to have a great time. Because she's busy "adulting," she's not going to waste time. She's simply going to ask for what she wants, so she can get back to those delicious root beer floats and that comfortable couch. So, with that in mind, here are a few things every grown-ass woman isn't afraid to ask for, when it comes time to get busy.
