The issue of hall passes has come up a lot lately. When I played with the wife half of a couple during my New Orleans trip, she discussed how she and her husband occasionally issue each other hall passes since he travels so frequently on business and they have little opportunity to play together.
Then of course, the movie Hall Pass recently came to video, a film in which two guys claim they want hot sex and their wives finally give them hall passes for the week. I have to say that in the middle of the movie when the guy turns down the proposition from the babysitter and her aunt, I found that highly unrealistic. Seriously—the chance of a lifetime for a threesome, with permission from your wife and you are going to say no? Doubtful.
Now the subject is coming up in our relationship… or rather I am pondering offering hall passes to Mr. Doubleplay. I’m going to be taking our family on an extended four-month trip to the other side of the world. Mr. D. will be staying home for most of the time.
I have no plans to play while I am gone. I’ll be far too busy with family. And even if I could get away, I don’t trust the sanitary conditions of the country where I am heading. The risks would be way too high.
But poor Mr Doubleplay will be home by his lonesome for a very long time. Certainly lap dances at the local strip club will be permitted. But I am also considering some permitted visitations with our favorite couples, if they are willing to have a single guy join them.
I’d be curious to hear from other couples who have made use of the hall pass rule. Any advice for a hall pass newbie?
