Sex date in karachi
I hadn’t had sex since six months prior, when I first moved from New York to Pakistan to be a journalist.
I graduated from university with idealistic dreams of being a frontline journalist, sandy, wind-swept hair and all.
the kind that makes you cringe when you’re not one of the involved parties, but grin when you are. Not only had I found another lesbian (who wasn’t frightening looking) on Tinder in Karachi, but I’d just confirmed our first date.
I lay in the darkness, the precarious ceiling-fan groaning and swaying above me.
My arm and head hung off the side of the bed in order to hold my phone in the only Wi Fi-friendly spot in the room — Tinder needs internet and Pakistani telecommunications infrastructure being what it is meant 3G was not an option — and I kept it there for what felt like an eternity, waiting to see if I got a reply.
At last a message popped up on my screen, rewarding my poor arm, now consumed with pins and needles.
I drew the phone in, holding it inches from my face, squinting in the darkness to read her message.
