"....perhaps we 'aven't been wit' ye right bloke..." well, we know NOW where Mannis stands with NIA - he wants-a ta BANG ya!...OK! with the 'politics' aside, it's nice that Mannis is being patient with Jeremy, reminding him that they're just dating now, so 'roles' don't have to be defined just yet, and I get where Jeremy's coming from about wanting to be upfront about his sexual standing....BUT(T)......It comes off a bit 'off the mark' to me- Jeremy was VERY fast when he was introduced to us many moons agao (....he slept with 'just sex only' Lance!), and Jeremy is a gay flight attendant, with would be all the more reason to 'fly around', so to speak, AND, he's Young n' TIGHT...it's nice he knows his worth to be safe, but THESE days there's a plethora of safety tactics he can-ahem- 'try',and, although he DID, he should be ahem-ahem- 'open' to it IF the right "bloke" cums along...Mannis is rough, sexy, and looks like he'd have to SCRAPE you off the sheets, after he gives you 'that good seeing to ya', so why let the MEMORY of that experience go because of a stance? TRY IT AGAIN...everyone's different... : )...then again, I've had my own 'back' blown out thru the years, maybe I should become NIA....nnnaaaahhhhh....ha-HAAA!! CHOW!
I've never been interested, not even to try. I still recall the time someone said that I 'owed' it to my partner. I said: 'I owe someone to participate in an act against my will? There's a term for that.' He said I was overreacting, but I don't think I was. As I said: 'If my partner wants to do that, he can do so with someone else safely if he wishes.' And I'm not opposed to it or revolted - it's just that until I saw it in a film, the thought of it never crossed my mind, and it didn't look appealing.
And that's as top or bottom. Which is part of why the 'are you a top or a bottom?' question has always been a poser for me. :) I used to answer 'middle', but that resulted in some other misconceptions. ;)
Love the last line. I knew a fellow who owned an "Adult" Bookstore. He said some of his best sales were when a church conference met in town!
Why is so much stress placed on one sexual act? I'm sure there are many people who don't like all aspects of sex. Some men (and some women) don't want to participate in anal or anything related to it. But isn't sex supposed to be like a buffet? You have a choice to select what you like as well try what you might want to sample. You can just as well skip the things that's not appealing. No one should be shamed for not wanting to try it. For example, I like men with chest/body hair very much. However, I truthfully know that every man I come across isn't going to be hairy or simply, for whatever reason, not have any. Am I going to not get involved with him since he doesn't have a physical detail I'm into? I just might find something else he might have that I equally desire. You never know. Anthony
I like that Jeremy's playing it the exact right way, and that Mannis is reacting like a guy who's never been confronted with the issue before. Seems very true to life. I don't blame Jeremy for wanting to know up front if he shouldn't bother to get invested...but I'm sure it would be jarring for someone who's not a fast mover (as Mannis doesn't appear to be) to be suddenly made to decide if anal sex is a deal-breaker for a relationship he doesn't know if he wants to have yet. Might be worth it, Mannis, to at least skip a few dates and get to the oral, to determine if the two of you have any sexual chemistry at all, before anyone might their heart broken.
Also...isn't Mannis going back to Scotland at some point? When we first heard about him, Drew said he was coming for "a visit". Mannis later says that he's lined up enough carpentry jobs for the next six months or so. Are his plans about if and when to go home up in the air? Cause honestly, that sounds like just as much of an impediment to a serious relationship as a sexual incompatibility...although I guess maybe Jeremy could get himself assigned to the New York to Scotland route.
@Mark:.....keen observation, Mark; and, I'd like to clarify, that I'm personally not taking anything away from Jeremy's viewpoint in my previous post; he clearly wants to put it on the table now, because he's now looking for something serious...very recommendable in a young millennial, in these days of Manhunt & Grindr...OR, Mannis may just be a colorful 'placeholder' character, to see another character off...this has been done before; Njord & Matthias, Sergei & Jake, Sean the priest, Vincenzo, Mark, etc. but, honestly (..don't hate me Greg), I won't miss either...they've done what they need(ed) to do, here....let's get back to Jaime & Sergei!! CHOW-CHOW!
My first serious, long-term partner was NIA, and frankly it made no difference to me. We got our rocks off in more specialized ways. But it was always fun to go to Folsom Street in full kit and have our friends asking, "So who's the top here? Who's the bottom?" We'd answer, quite honestly, neither, which initially led to the assumption we were both switch-hitters. When we straightened them out about how our sex lives were constructed, you could just see the clouds of confusion a-gatherin'. We always got a laugh over the fact that even the leathermen on Folsom Street could be flummoxed every now and then.....
the bottom left panel...did the Scott got punched or stung by a bee?
@Karmakat: ...well, if that's what Manni is workin' with, maybe Jeremy doesn't need to worry about MIA - ...he won't feel NUTTHIN'! ...haHAA!...then, AGAIN, I've been with some 'bees' that had reeeel good 'stingability', so mayybeeee....ha-HAAA!!@Sean: ...if it's Folsom Street, they're ALWAYS flummoxed....too much to SEE!! ...ha-HAAA! MMMMMMMMMM - I remember when I saw / met (former) Gay Porn star Samuel Colt there...he snorted a condom thru his right nostril, and regurgitated it outta his MOUTH! .. I was in LUV! ..ha-HAAA! memmmmmorieeeesss...CHOW-CHOW-CHOW!
Nice bit of racism you wrote there, Greg. Well done. This comic can be so white at times.
@Don:....ha-HAAA!! let's pray for them, eh, Donnie!? ; )
