Maybe I hadn't been the incredibly mature and sophisticated young woman who had attracted an older man. Maybe this wasn't a romantic tale of sexual awakening and empowerment at all.

I remember feeling real contempt towards my partner when he regaled my labour story to our friends, as if it had been he who pushed an 8lb baby out of his mangina.
