my oblivious friend
Is he…. Mmm I don’t wanna make assumptions from one page but… What exactly is his new job??
…and where’s his ace ring?
you can kinda see it in the last panel, it’s just obscured in like every shot here. it’s on his left hand.
Well he is sitting on a padded surface……shirtless…..with a dude who apears to only be wearing a black thong.
My first thought was “is this some sort of deep cover hit job?”
I mean, if it isn’t, that’s fine, but that’s what came to mind.
Ah, this would be the “Uh.” when he was describing his career path to Herv earlier in the comic.
Love seeing the additional tats! and also it would seem he’s got his own agenda to keep quiet about. Very interesting!
So, has he discovered that he’s a demisexual?
I’m assuming this is an escort job, but being ace and choosing such a job is interesting. He would have to be sex-neutral to not mind. A job is a job, after all, you don’t have to enjoy it, just tolerate it enough not to hate yourself.
If it was that easy for him to just “Role With It” he would still have both eyes. Of course, his inability to get it up, (save for morning wood) might have still cost him an eye, unless she could have been satisfied with something else. Unless we are being humorously misled about this situation, which I find highly likely, we most likely are dealing with a demisexual situation.
Twigs said Eliza was dangerous, she hinted that they had a fling, yet he’s asexual, so I assume she got aggressive when he tried to back out after realizing she’s psycho. Also Twigs said he was lucky to have this job, ethics aside, so I doubt it has anything to do with being demisexual. Demisexual is just being attracted to somebody after you’ve known them for awhile. I imagine most sex workers don’t find a lot their clients attractive, they just have to please them for the money, so it doesn’t really matter if you’re asexual, as long as you’re okay with the sex part. It’s a job, not a relationship.
Well, the asexual i knew found the very idea of sex disgusting, and gave me the impression that most are like that.
My mother seems to be demisexual as the only person she has EVER been sexually attracted to was my dad. She’s not hung up on such labels however, and has been comfortably single since the divorce. My dad has confirmed that she was a Virgin until she was 35, after they’d been dating for a year, to clarify the grounds for my suspicion, and has never dated anyone else, and shows a peculiar disdain for sex in general. I sometimes wonder if she’s really more asexual, but REALLY wanted to be a mom. Definitely in the “Gray Asexual” spectrum somewhere.
Not every asexual hates sex. The key definition is not finding people sexually appealing or desiring sex. There are many who are sex neutral instead of sex repulsed. Laurence is sex neutral. He’s not terribly interested in it and he doesn’t find people sexually attractive. But that doesn’t really apply here anyway where it is just a job.
I guess I was working at least on the assumption that one partner might be turned off by the inability to turn the other on, and its harder for a man to fake being turned on then a woman. It now occurs to me that Laurence could get around that to a large degree by taking viagra, however. No matter how turned off you are in your head, that stuff won’t let you shrivel.
Please don’t. Demisexuality is being asexual *until and unless* you have known someone for a life-changing amount of time. It’s not a fancy word for “doesn’t fuck on the first date”, and this ace would thank you for not continuing to make a useful word useless.
I really don’t see how what they said is different from what you said.
“only finding people attractive after you’ve known them for a long time”
“only finding someone attractive after you’ve known them for a long time”
NOBODY said the crass thing about “doesn’t fuck on the first date”. no one.
I wasn’t trying to imply any such thing. I’m just sometimes trying to make sense of my parents peculiar relationship and how that gave me an idea for what was possibly going on here.
There are times in life when I am like Doc. and completely miss some social cues . I gotta say though, I like the tats’ on the second to last panel. Are those 2 hummingbirds on his back or are they Fiji parrot-finches?
they’re barn swallows, it’s a sailor tattoo
Eliza came on to him, to piss off her dad and he rebuffed her cuz hes not her sex toy to use or a sex toy period. She then took his eye. Case of man said no and woman got violent.
