Most of us have been brought up to be at least slightly ashamed of anything sexual, and it is frequently reassuring to discover that we are not different, naughty, or even perverted in our sexual practices. In discussing sex with others, people find out how truly normal they are.
The characters in ANIMAL LOVER are a case in point. Their story is one of real importance for our hung-up society. It is a story well worth the reading if we are ever to understand our own sexuality.
Wendy Conn had one ambition in life; she wanted to be a perfect housewife for Jeffrey Conn and avoid excitement, because excitement always meant risk. She was comfortable in the knowledge she was plain and cautious and was irritated rather than flattered when their friends commented on how beautiful she was-or how sexy.
She could look at herself in the mirror and appreciate the glow of her flawless, nut-brown skin and the attractiveness of her wide-set gray eyes and up-tilted nose and ripe, ever-smiling lips. She often looked at her naked figure in the mirror and admitted to herself that her thirty-six bust was due as much to plump, firm tits as to a swimmer’s lung capacity, and that her twenty-five inch waist served to emphasize her other curves, and that she had long legs for her height-tapering gracefully from generous hips. Wendy was well aware of the saucy way her ass-cheeks wriggled when she walked and that Jeff considered miniskirts the best thing since sliced bread-while they lasted.
But Wendy knew she was plain in spite of all that; her sister Cecily was the beauty in the Nissen family.
Wendy normally avoided thinking of Cecily, but her sister had been a house guest in Wendy’s new home for almost a week and even today dear Carol Anthony had remarked on how she envied Wendy her figure-as if in an effort to offset the drop Wendy’s morale had suffered in her sister’s continued presence. Neither Carol’s attempt nor the embarrassing stare of the box boy in the supermarket that afternoon was going to help, though, when Jeff was so obviously conscious of his sister-in-law’s loveliness.
