Daisy’s just like, “How long was I zoned out?
This is going to be a really funny conversation though, partially because it is at a crowded table with more people than Paulo who heard that. The main reason though is that everyone views Daisy as their ‘little sister’ and this is so out of character for her.

I also love how in the third row of panels, Paulo just takes a bite out of the sammich and looks like, ‘What’s in this sandwich?’. He also looks like a sucker-fish when he eats.

Daisy: Master of Awkward. Champion of the Unexpected. The Great Causer of Spit-Takes. The list goes on.
And Daisy, for the record, maybe you should be asking one of the girls (Jess or Rachel) about that. They’d probably be able to give you a better answer than Paulo could.
Also, that’s just one of those questions. You know it’s probably going to be asked at some point, but you’re still flustered even when it happens.
And I spy with my little eye, a new, updated icon for Taeshi! Looks pretty awesome!

I’m representing that anti-Daisy rushing into pregnancy risk territory team.

And I approve of her awkward attempt at getting a second opinion. Somehow I feel that she’d be better off asking a girl. You know, just because a guy doesn’t have any pain. Rachel or Jessica might actually surprise all of us and tell her she should wait.

Being her friends, I’d imagine they’d be in unison about it whether for or against.

Gender is not a factor unless you want it to be. What matters is how comfortable you are with your friends and what you are willing to share.

It is rather common knowledge in the school (common for it was yelled in the hallways) that Paulo rejected rebound sex from Lucy, then had sex with Jess and Rachael.

Vanvoltra August 21, 2013, 2:05 PM EST.

Comment ID #257354


Well, the correct answer is “It feels exactly the same as when I hadn’t”, really. I mean, it’s not like some big event that has some major impact on who you are. It’s just a thing.

Unless you end up with an unwanted pregnancy, then things get messy fast.

Still, I find Paolo’s reaction amusing. That isn’t really the kind of question you could take in your stride out of the blue unless you were already open to talking about it, which I don’t think any of them are… well maybe Rachel.

It’s a little different for girls. For some people it might just be a thing. For others it might feel like an earth shattering moment. A lot of people I know regretted it.

The thing is, people never say they wish they hadn’t waited. They say they wish that they had. That’s why the whole being ready thing is really important. You can’t go back on that first time.

The thing is, people never say they wish they hadn’t waited. They say they wish that they had.

You don’t gain any life experience if you don’t screw around.
By that logic you present, one should wait forever as you’ll never TRULY feel ready.
There’s only “good enough” and “not good enough”

Besides first time being ****** and awkward is a cemented fact, even if it’s a 50 year old virgin finally getting some action.

Welcome to life, take some chances, make some mistakes, learn from them.
Otherwise you’re just wasting your life away in a boring security bubble of grey & sterile

If this turns into Paulo learning/assuming that Daisy wants to get frisky with Abbey (because obviously she’s thinking about it, and Abbey is her boyfriend), I can’t even imagine how this is going to go down. xD

Being everyone’s little sister means that everyone is super protective of Daisy (and her innocence), so I’m thinking that this could either lead to more Paulo/Abbey conflict, just more head-conflict for Daisy, ooor Paulo could uncomfortably flip the table and run away screaming and no one would question a thing. :D

/inevitably this is going to be uncomfortable for everyone - I can’t wait <3

Jeez settle down.

I was just recounting the same sentiment I hear on replay from my friends who have been sexually active since their senior year of high school. My point being that the is never any harm in waiting until you are ready (especially when you are 15 and possibly barely hit puberty). I never said you should wait until you are 50.

Besides, I’m not sure what life experience you are talking about having gained from sleeping around with everyone and their neighbor. *rolls eyes*
It’s not like sex is difficult.

Comment ID #257391

Losing virginity for girls is different from guys so Dasiy is actually better off asking Tess this question. When a girl losses their virginity they also usually break their hymen. It is very painful so don’t go thinking losing your virginity is all pleasure, there is plenty of pain for the girl if it is there first time and they still have their hymen. But because of all the cheerleading stuff that Dasiy did back in middle school, and she still might be doing it the cheer leading I mean, she may not have her hymen but let’s assume she does, she will go through a lot of pain.

Although, you’ve got to cut Daisy some slack - she really doesn’t seem to think there’s anything wrong with wanting to ask a question, even though the subject matter is incredibly awkward. And Paulo really is the only one of her friends she can ask in regards to that, heh.
