It's a little similar to one of my why-s. My IC says it's common that someone like me who was fairly wild during my youth, then straightened up big time for marriage/work/family to fall off the wagon in a big way when the right type of A presented itself. It's a neat way to explain my A, but the more I dig there's a lot more at play. A history of having poor boundaries, wanting to be validated, a relationship with my H that hadn't be worked on with mid life crisis on top for good measure.
The one good take away from the wild child reason was to look for appropriate ways to have challenges and thrills. Not sure if it feeds the wild child beast or not, but the ideas we've come up with sure keep me busy.
