Help me find this AskMe comment, please July 24, 2011 11:59 AM   Subscribe

I remember (but can't find) an AskMe comment where someone said she had slept with her male, virginal friend "to boost his confidence" or something, but that ultimately it changed nothing and 10 years later he still hadn't slept with anyone else. Anyone remember where it was/have better search skills than me?

yeah, wow. So helpful for that anonymous person to offer that story. That's great.

I actually had a friend who got laid multiple times in his early 20s by telling girls he was a virgin. Meanwhile, I actually was a virgin and when I tried it, girls just said: "Yeah, no kidding.."

And whom would your second favorite whore be?

tehloki of course.
posted by cjorgensen at 2:31 PM on July 24, 2011


The key take away is that cortex is not a prostitute.
posted by planet at 4:18 PM on July 24, 2011


tehloki is more of a favourite john, imo.

Heh, I asked about this same post about a year ago and the discussion went in an entirely more negative direction. xD

Dear Penthouse,

So there was this long time lurker, first time poster who had never been favorited before. I was just sitting at my desk minding my own account when she favorited one of my comments. I wrote a memail to thank her and next thing you know we are IMing away. Well, comments later, I decided to make my move and favorite her. Guess what? We became spouses too!

Ah, my youth on the internets.

Once, I let my neighbor try my pogo-stick, because he'd never tried one, and he felt like he'd missed out on part of his childhood. At first, he was awkward and fumbling, falling off numerous times, even skinning his knee. But he kept at it all afternoon, and within a couple of hours, he could stay on it for a few minutes at a time. The next day, he bought a pogo stick of his own, and began that following Monday to pogo-stick to work every day.

Last month, that same man completed an 8,000 mile journey around the US and parts of Canada.

Of course, none of what I've just related is true, and I use "pogo-stick" as a euphemism for masturbation on a bus.

I wonder if 69% of users have been favorited for pay.

Also, I wonder if the Kinsey folks were doing a <wink wink, nudge nudge> thing when they decided not to round to 70%.

Of course I wonder that about pretty much everything produced by the Kinsey Institute.

Sometimes I think favorites are entirely random. I'll say something, and realize how stupid or uninformed it is, and then be amazed by how many favorites it is. WHY?

Interesting thread and comment, and I hope that anon OP is still around to note that I had a similar experience with my best friend, but he did go on to have relationships with other women after I left the West Coast.

Funniest part of the whole weekend was his roommate thanking me for "taking care of that" when he was driving me back to the airport.

It turns out that in re-reading the comment, I realized it wasn't as relevant as I'd thought.

I have a (lesbian) friend who is a very late-in-life virgin pondering whether to find someone to be her first without having a relationship with said person. But she seems to handle the dating/flirting thing perfectly fine. She just hasn't been out long and hasn't dated much yet and has had a few women turn her down because she has no experience.
