Quit thinking about the D and focus on keeping your A.

Okay, now that is out of the way and I can focus on saying something more interesting. This couple is so adorable. They are both nervous about this. :D Uhh, I don’t think there is anything I could add that I haven’t already talked about on the previous page.

So how about those cute background characters? I’m really liking the dog girl up front and the cat girl on the left side with the blonde hair, blue eyes, and white fur… wait uhh. Never mind, I just had a silly thought about the second girl for a moment. :unsure:

This page is absolutely perfect. Simply because of the silence, it just being a few stares, look at the clock, blush and whatnot. It fits the mood perfectly. That mood being…

She is going to eat that entire pen by the end of the period.
I think Abbey isn’t showing too much excitement, not because he isn’t excited, but perhaps because he’s nervous about the whole ordeal. It could be taking over his psyche. Besides, in comparison, on this page alone, Daisy looks hella worried as well.
Anyways, I think if Abbey was uncomfortable with the idea, he wouldn’t have gotten Daisy’s hopes up. But then again, this comic is unpredictable. If I had to guess though, the chapter ends with hawt non-baby-making-for-once-concentual-sex.

Mewtallica… it’s BECAUSE sex isn’t planned out that so many people ruin their lives with it. :/

pregnancy, diseases, and so many other problems cause because people can’t think with their goddamn heads for even one moment.

i wouldn’t be surprised if you end up having some screwed up kid in the future because of your way of thinking.

also, supertails19, i have a feeling i know what you were gonna say about that cat girl…

personally, i think daisy and abbey are perfectly justified in being so nervous… sex isn’t a toy you just whip out and have fun with any damn time you want, with whoever you want, it’s supposed to be a mature decision in life that can completely flip your life upside down if you are not responsible with it.

i know of far too many people who screwed up big time because they were just “having fun”, instead of planning things out.

i am perfectly happy hanging out with friends and playing video games, going to the mall, watching movies, and simple things like that. :D

No matter how far I go or how much I try I can’t seem to escape Freud, this has to be the cruelest of curses imaginable.

On topic though, I like how much attention is being given to their decision and the build up to it, you can really sense their nervousness and anxiety.

Daisy, Daisy, Daisy…you poor, misguided little cutie ;_; you don’t have to prove anything to anyone.

I think I just had an epiphany! As an emotional rollercoaster that she was, Lucy would usually be the voice of reason in situations such as this( except whenever it involves the S.S. MikexLucy); which goes to prove my theory…WE NEED LUCY Mad Lucy

They really are a cute couple. The first stages of a relationship are almost ALWAYS super exciting like this. You’re getting to know the person, you’re experimenting, you’re caught up in how new and exciting it all is. It’s almost doubly so when it’s your first real relationship as a teenager, though.

Whatever happens with Daisy and Abby, I hope they can work through it together and keep going strong. I love having a happy, healthy, steady relationship among all this drama and turmoil.

I’m sorta hoping they end up doing it and in the middle of it all Daisy calls out Mike’s name. I’m sure that would really set Abbey off and give us something interesting.

After this arc I’m pretty sick of both Abbey and Daisy. It’s been two arcs and we still don’t know what the deal with Lucy was. I’m starting to not care anymore.

Judging by the sheer amount of red blush in these pages, Daisy’s been horny the entire day so far. By the time they get out of school she might be so flooded with hormones she’ll probably jump Abbey.

I like the way Daisy nibbles and sucks on that pen while constantly looking at Abbey. Huh, wonder what kind of thought going through her head could be making her blush like that…
I’ve really been enjoying the physical design of Daisy, btw. Her small stature, her curly fur, her “chubbiness”, and the innocence of her eyes. She’s young, feeling hot, and loaded. Now she just needs something to make her go “bang”, haha, yeah?
I can understand Abbey being reluctant, after all he IS a virgin just like Daisy. However, in this virgin couple of love, it seems Daisy is the one who’s pushing the “envelop” the hardest.

This is my cue to say that as much as I like to promote happy safe sex and no shaming, if you choose not to have sex because you don’t want to, are not ready yet, or are anxious, that’s cool too. Whatever makes you feel good. Something tells me Daisy will get the condoms but in the end decide not to do anything with them (yet). And that’s cool too.

Hmm, I’m not sure about Abbey. Maybe he’s just pushing it to the back of his head during class, but if he isn’t ready and Daisy tries to push him into it then things will likely get messy, and somewhat ugly.

Hopefully things turn for the best but for now I guess all we can do is keep watching.

What I understand about this situation is that they’re going to buy some protections “just in case”, as Daisy said before…
I don’t understand now why so much comments are talking about “planed sex” , they just want to be sure that they won’t make some mistakes the day they gonna have sex. But they don’t plan it. Or maybe I misunderstood ?

Honestly, it was supposed to be in preparation of potential future sexual intimacy. However at this point it’s looking at the very least like Daisy has become ready to jump Abe’s stovepipe hat the moment they have protection. As for the comment section, this is really more a debate (hasn’t really boiled into an argument) of Abstinence Vs. Sex ed. and to a lesser extent Nature vs Nurture.

P.S. As for your English, no worries, you speak better English than my wife. So it’s cool.

Basically what you are debating is idealism vs realism. In an ideal world a teen males can deny the everlasting ***** in their pants and teen females wouldn’t be hormonally unstabilized to give into emotional factors (there’s a reason why boys use the “if you love me you’ll do it” line, because it’s super effective). Everything you are pitching is one of those deals that sound good on paper, but when applied to the practical you start to see the flaws in it. This is the realist side of this debate, the realist are in the camp of it’s better to prepare for the worst case scenario. In this case because most realists know that the odds of a teen keeping their virginity throughout high school are stacked against teens., especially in today’s worlds where many teen idols are teenybopper cherrypoppers, combined with the idea that a female being sexually active is now considered a form of female empowerment.

Sex. Isn’t. Planned. It’s PREPARED for. You discuss it with your partner and see if you’re both on the same page. Then you get your chosen contraceptives, you carry them with you, take your pills, be proactive and safe. But you don’t say what day it’ll happen on, then expectation, fear of performance, fear of failure, and/or nervousness gets in the way of just two people who want each other more than anything else and that’s awful. Daisy is not being smooth about this at all and is putting a lot of pressure on Abbey to please her. It’s unfair but understandable. The want to be wanted and feel desirable can drive you nuts.

I feel like Daisy only wants to have sex because she wants to prove herself to somebody. Maybe to prove that she’s an adult, I don’t know. She seems into it but Abbey on the other hand… Well, he’s clearly uncomfortable with the idea but I don’t think he wants to say anything. While Daisy may be up to it, Abbey isn’t. I’m going to guess that Abbey ends up talking her out of it or something.
