Here’s the short version: A fellow blogger who found me here, read about The Giant and sent me an email. We fell in love. There were major barriers to a successful relationship – we live many thousands of miles away from one another, and that long distance wasn’t going to be eliminated for at least eighteen months.
We had two great visits together, but just couldn’t find a way to bridge the distance and the very different places we were in.
He said to me when we met that our story was a romance and mystery and drama all wrapped up together. Little did we know how prescient his comment was.
Below are the links to what I’ve written about him (he also has a page for me on his website, which last time I looked was still there).
Before I “outed” him as Johnny Id:
- The sexiest thing I’ve ever received
- A real introduction to Matthew
- 100 hours
- Leaving on a Jet Plane
- En Route
Meeting him for a five-day vacation (I still hadn’t outed him):
- Sleeping in Separate Beds
- Matthew in the Flesh
- Five Days with Matthew | The Sex
- Five Days with Matthew | The Feelings
- Five Days with Matthew | The Future
- The lazy person’s guide to Matthew & his identity
What happened to me when he acted on his part of our “open” relationship (hint: it wasn’t pretty):
How we dealt with it:
- My blog might be boring for a bit
- Is the universe conspiring *for* me?
- Other women and abandonment | My conflicts with Johnny Id
- A truly extraordinary man
Leading up to our second visit together:
- My threesome with Johnny Id
- Johnny’s coming! Johnny’s coming!
- Johnny’s Revenge | When is Ann going to write a book?
- My son doesn’t want to sleep with a hairy man.

Our second visit together, when he stayed with me:
- My update on 10 straight days of sex
- Friday: Where I mess around with Johnny in my car and put on a show
- Friday: Wherein my long distance love enters my world
- Saturday Morning: Beer, Wine, and Sex Two Times. Yes, you read that right.
- The f*cking un-f*ck-inable bed
- When Johnny met my Son & Mother
