Tiny Love Stories: ‘Sex Is Our Antidote To Loss’

Thursday morning: Clear our schedule, send children to school. Grabbing espresso, leaning upwards to make the teen walk out of the chaperone. Forget your cancer fear. Before you come, forget how I was widowed by a suicide. Sex is our antidote to harm. We take our time. But in the epidemic? not anymore. Teens fill the house, swing on chairs, scatter on the couch, zoom – all day. And night? Sleep is sexier than sex. Until school resumes. You touch my face We close our eyes, hold on like survivors, get accustomed to moments that make the day, never want to let go. – Rachel Zimmerman

Sandy was a straightforward transgender woman from the Bronx. I am a lesbian, ciegender woman from Manhattan. Just three miles apart, we lived in different worlds. We met at the methadone clinic where I was his doctor. Every week for six months, we treated her for hepatitis. Although feverish and weak, she was cured. But within a year, Sandy finds out that she has advanced lymphoma. On her deathbed, she told me that she loves me. I had felt that trust grew between us in my small office, but I had no idea about his feelings. Eleven years later, I still remember him.— Melissa Stein

Born in South Korea, I was adopted at birth by a white military family stationed at Kwangju Air Base. Having children of my own has been a deep experience. They are the only biologically related family I have ever known. Throughout my life, I have struggled to find out where I belong culturally. The struggle as a mother seems even more complicated: how do I go through the part of me that is most foreign to me? Without a map, me and my family experiment. In my son’s bak-il, celebrating the 100th day of a Korean child’s life, I felt homesick. – Lani Longacre


My boyfriend signed us up for a dating app under the guise of swinging as a partner. He managed my account and swiped through men for me. My boyfriend arranged a meeting with Won for strictly casual sex. Vonn shared stories of his previous polyandry involvement and expressed a deep affinity for honesty. We did not have sex that night, but a week later I broke up with my boyfriend after learning that he was cheating on me when we were single. Now, Vonn and I are still in an open relationship – this time, without secrets, just contentment. – Lauren Burnless
