At 47, Laura Friedman Williams received the terrible news that her husband had cheated on her. After ending the 22-year-long marriage, Laura discovered her new "superpower."
Laura is now 51, and her life has been an adventure for the last few years.
After the breakup, she decided to kick her cheating husband out, and five months later, she felt ready to give dating a try.
A new world opened up when she downloaded the Tinder app and started swiping through the options. Laura realized she was free to do whatever she wanted, and she was not late to indulge.
"If you want to sleep with two men on the same day, you can. If you want to have a tryst in the middle of the day, you're free. The only person who can judge you is yourself. And if you're fine with it, screw everyone else," she told the New York Post.
For the next year, she met up with eight different guys. She then decided to share her stories about steamy meetings in hotel rooms and midnight romances in her autobiography.
While balancing her adventurous sex life with being a good and present mother to her three children, Laura discovered new things about herself.
She learned to prioritize her wishes and needs, and she also found that the best way to satisfy men is simply by asking them what they enjoy.
She did not let her age stop her from feeling and acting confident—a treat many men appreciated about her.
"I didn't buy into the theory that because I was older, I was less desirable. Men were very attracted to the fact I was a strong woman who didn't want anything from them and was calling the shots," she explained.
In her busy life, she managed to find time for her flings.
"If I was having a good date and a man would kiss me goodbye, I would tell them, okay, I have two hours. Let's go back to your place."
Laura believes that good sex can help when you struggle to overcome grief. If other women are interested in enjoying themselves with different partners, they should not let society's norms hinder them.
She wants to encourage women to enjoy their sex life. Just don't forget to do it safely!
After exploring what's on offer, Laura has found someone to win her heart because she is currently in a relationship.
