I wonder…did Paulo actually find out why Jess and Rache slept with him? I mean, the first times. I know he and Jess have agreed there’s no hard feelings between them, but I don’t remember if he was ever told that Jess was just trying to get revenge on Tess. :question:

Either way, it looks like he’s doing alright now, with both of them. :)

Daisy, don’t get mad at Paulo. He’s just talking to them, he’s not trying fool around with them anymore. What he said in the cafeteria wasn’t lies. He’s allowed to do what he’s doing- Yeah, she going get angry with him a question what he’s doing anyway, ain’t she?

Huh. Wonder what Paulo is on about with Rachel and Jess? He seems pretty happy…meanwhile, Jess just looks so BORED.
And then we have Daisy. Specifically her face in the last panel. I just…I don’t even. It just looks so funny/weird there!
…in all honesty, I’m kind of curious as to what’s coming in the next few pages. At this point, it could go any way we’ve imagined…or maybe something we didn’t even think of might happen?

Now it seems that Daisy is going through with this just to prove herself. :/ This can’t end well. :( The moment she saw Paulo was the moment where almost all doubt about this went out of the window.

Daisy, this isn’t some goal that you have to speed by… going through with this doesn’t exactly make you more mature either so why rush this? Can’t you see how nervous Abbey seems to be? Did you ever think that maybe he’s asking you if you are sure about this because he’s unsure about it? That just maybe, you are actually pushing yourself and Abbey to rush into something that you think you are ready for, but are actually not?

supertails19 August 30, 2013, 1:19 PM EST.

Comment ID #258089

I suppose from Abbey’s point of view which could explain his nervousness beyond that of typical lad in that situation. We know that he has issues with anger and violent outbursts, yes he is getting counseling but he could be worried about what will happen. Sex and violence are linked and he could be worried about what he may do if lost in the moment.

Daisy, pleeeease don’t feel like you have to do this in order to ‘fit in’ or ‘prove yourself’ or anything like that.

Paulo was honestly looking out for you, not calling you a baby. Daisy you’re like the cutest little thing in this comic, I don’t wanna see you screw up ;w;

@visiface: I don’t think she feels bitter right now, just irritated that Paulo seems to be treating her like she is a child and like she can’t make the proper choice about who she has sex with. Meanwhile we know that Paulo sees her as a little sister, and talking with your little sister about sex is weird and awkward and you especially wouldn’t want her first time to be with someone you hate.

Comment ID #258101

The thing that’s bugging me is that everyone seem’s to have lost the point of why Abbey and Daisy are going. It’s not because they want to have sex, but as a safety reason if the mood/event ever comes to pass, which is more more likely as they date longer.

Creatrix August 30, 2013, 2:55 PM EST.

Comment ID #258102

I’ve never understood hating a particular character in the series unless they’re designed to be hated. They’re all designed the way they are as protagonists for certain reasons, to fit into a little puzzle sculpted in the artist’s mind. Hating them vocally with no justifiable reason, or even with a justifiable reason, isn’t going to have the author change who the character is. That’s just how they are.

I guess it’s a personal issue, if anything.

All I see is a horny Daisy trying to prove to her friends, namely Paulo, that she isn’t just a little kid and that she can do frisky things like that same as everybody else. Although I think she’s missing the point as to why Paulo didn’t want to talk to her about it, being that she’s kind of a little sister to him. He couldn’t imagine Daisy ever doing things like that because to do so would be like thinking about your sis having sex.

But then again, it’s Daisy; She’s never really been known to be too smart when it comes to things like these.

Turanis August 30, 2013, 3:22 PM EST.

Comment ID #258108


To the contrary, she’s not trying to prove anything to her friends. In fact, the only person that knows about it is Paulo, outside of Abbey of course. Typically when someone is trying to ‘prove’ something, they make it a big point and mention it everywhere to everyone. She’s simply a girl growing up, ready to take her relationship just a bit further with the one she’s in love with, as any individual in a couple feels after a period of time.

Welcome to high school, where hormones run high. And while she may be oblivious to Paulo’s behaviour during the topic of discussion, she’s actually being HIGHLY intelligent in regards to preperation for such activities by seeking out proper protection and safeguarding for mishaps. This is a smart Daisy looking to get laid. This is growing up, and character development.

So I’ve got a serious question to ask: why is this such a bad thing? Teenagers have been messing around since the dawn of time. By the time a teanager turns 18, more than half of them have been sexually active (in America at least); so this isn’t even unusual behavior from a statistical perspective. Furthermore, They are cognizant of the risks and actively looking for birth control. Finally, they have been in a stable relationship for around a year (rather long term given the setting) and seem to actively care about each other. Outside of the fact that this comic courts drama like a skilled lover, there is no in-universe reason why this is a crisis.

Now Daisy is just being annoying. What is she trying to prove? She’s being so stubborn with this idea of hers, and not only does Paulo not agree, (and Abbey himself), but neither does Abbey’s MOTHER. It’s like she doesn’t realize how important it is to respect her boyfriend’s parents’ wishes. She’s being so irrational, and yeah I know, she’s a cartoon who isn’t even alive, but for the long while that Ive been reading this… I’ve come to really like and get to know these characters… But, with this new arc, man, Daisy, I’m starting to lose respect for you.

@Ouroboros It’s not so much the statistics. It’s the two individual in this story that make it a big deal. Daisy’s the egghead possible valedictorian chick. I knew a girl like her in high school. Never once did I think that girl was sexually active or even of her sexually,and I did the same to Daisy. Plus I thought daisy was one of those “wait til your married” chicks.

@Redneck I understand that but my point is that this kind of thing isn’t weird or wrong. Instead I get the impression that most of the vocal community have divided into the minority that says “what a ho” and the majority who seem to say “Oh noes! Shes not ready!!!1!11!oneone!”; my point is that this is no big deal and it’s perfectly natural. As far as the “wait til your married” thing, based on my own experiences (which I will firmly admit are not necessarily representative) that usually translates to: “I wait until you prove you’re not a horny jerk and I decide that I am ready.”

I get what you say, and I suppose you’re right; however, I didn’t literally mean smart as in intelligence. I meant it as being oblivious to how Paulo feels about the whole thing and how that’s kind of how she’s always been in situations like this. When it comes to being smart about preparation and such, she’s got that licked.

Dude… It’s his mom… Of COURSE she’s gonna be like that. She’s a parent, it’s her JOB to react to it like that; and naturally Abbey and Daisy are probably gonna do it anyway. If she feels that she’s ready for something like this, than it’s her decision, not yours. So take a chill pill bro.

Comment ID #258133

lol, I bet they’re going to do anything, BUT make out.
They’re probably going to go to a carnival or talk to some relationship councilor, or something along those lines.
There have been previous chapters where crumbs are dropped that seemed to suggest a very conclusive ending, which often turn into a backhand (forgive the offensive imagery, but that’s exactly what it’s like).
The reason why I say this is when Abbey asks, “You sure you want to go?” What does he exactly mean by that? “Go” where? If he said “You sure you want to do this?” Then that would allude to and solidify what most have already come to assume. I am curious to see where they’re “going” and why.
Edit: Also, if both partners who are virgins feel ashamed or nervous about their feelings that make them believe sex is going to be so great, as panels 5-7 shows, it waters down the “magic” and makes it something less appealing, as well as difficult to reach. If you want the sex, you both have to be going into it willing and wanting it or it will end up sour.
Like I mentioned in previous posts, it’s a “yes” or “no” not a “uh, maybe so”.

Uhhhh… Daisy. If you’re doing it to prove that you’re not a “baby” then you’re doing it for the wrong reason and will wind up regretting it. And on a related note, I hate it when people take heartfelt advice and turn it into a personal attack… ugh.

Allsmiles August 30, 2013, 9:03 PM EST.

Comment ID #258139

I don’t mind that Daisy’s wanting to have sex. What’s concerning is that she’s doing it for the wrong reason.

Initially, she didn’t “want” to do it more as she just wanted to be prepared just in case the time came about. Good for her! Better be prepared for something like sex. What seems to be the case now is she wants to do it not just because she loves Abbey, but because she feels that by having sex, she’s going to prove something about her. That’s a dangerous thought, because in that state of mind it’s difficult to remember why she was trying to have sex in the first place, and sex begins to feel more like an obligation above anything.

Sex is something that should be shared. It’s something that requires full, total consent on both sides. It’s something that both of them should be comfortable expressing. It’s something that you both need to be prepared for. It isn’t an obligation; it’s a wonderful demonstration of love and trust, casual or otherwise.

While Daisy is definitely understanding the physical preparations (condoms, etc.) she doesn’t seem emotionally ready. While the first time is going to be awkward, and it always is, the thought that she’s doing it to prove something is dangerous because that’s only a few steps away to thinking of it as an obligation.

I appreciate that Daisy wants to explore sex and knows about the consequences, I think she should talk more about it with Abbey before leaping into it, presuming they ARE going to do it.

I don’t really see why people are freaking out. Even if Daisy and Abbey do the horizontal tango, what is the problem? They care about each other and clearly know what they’re doing. Having sex is a normal and natural thing, and it isn’t a mistake if you do it safely with someone you care for, and whom cares for you.

See what I think the most interesting outcome is that they are finally about to do the doo right? and Abbey is just to stressed, or something relating to the mental that we may find out later, and he just can’t get erect right? so he doesn’t want dasiy to find out so he does everything but the actual screwing. so she at one point **** and abbey is just happy it’s over and that she was pleased, but no he has to have this inner struggle of why he couldn’t get erect. But dasiy on the other hand is just curious why he didn’t want her to do anything, so she tries to ask him but he keeps running around the subject, and this really messes with her and she starts getting super insecure about her self and abbey becomes a bit distant because there is something wrong with him and questions his whole sexual orientation, so Dasiy talks to paulo about it and through some back and for he just sorta choks it up that he’s gay. But the twist at the end of all this is that abbey is actually asexual and. yeah. I dunno I think that would be sick. but what ever you guys decide I know will be grand.

Would have liked to see racheals expreshion to her dream guy talking. A blush or to. Abby Realy doesn’t seem excited at all, and daisy i believe just wants to prove something to her self. Like the song, Daisy doesn’t know she’s beautiful. Thanks for doing that to her mike. Douche. Serously when is he going to pay for his sins! Abby, come on its your freaking dream girl, man up! Or P u s s y up….CAT. Lastly Taeshi your art and style is just stellar! I love how the colors have a sorta watercolor feel, its just shaded very sublime.

ahhhh i remember my first time…. she was a ***** ~.~ well **** technically seeing as far as i know she never got money. we tried for hours and i just couldn’t complete. soo i gave up got some food then told her that night was bloody weird and shouldn’t have happened then i left.

though with these two? i think it will…well should end up nice. assuming that it mellows him out and shows him that he has no reason to be jealous things will be great. however if that throws his boy hormones into over drive his not wanting to be like his dad will make him end up like his dad. though i see a more jealous version that will dis allow the two to become really close. it will inevitably end up with the two of them breaking up over him being a jealous douche nozzle.

well that’s how i see the two possible out comes in the broad spectrum of things that is.

A few pages back Daisy said that since they had been dating for a year, she and Abbey should think about protection and going all the way. Honestly, that kind of thinking ticks me off to no end. Since when is there a “dating time limit” to discuss/think about having sex?

As an example, my girlfriend and I have been seeing one another for three and a half years. Not once have we said “hey, we’ve been dating X number of years; let’s have sex.” We both know we are not ready (both of us just having graduated college and inundated with school loans) and we both believe that it will be worth it to wait.

I sincerely hope that Daisy comes to her senses before she does something that she regrets, or Abbey mans up and confesses he is uncomfortable with the whole situation!

@LostInPhilly89 - I’m just gonna go ahead and say it: when people say things like “well we’ve been dating this long, we’re probably gonna have sex soon” its not because they’re just ‘following a natural progression’ or some BS like that. They say that because they want to have sex. Sex is a very desirable thing for most people. They’re smart that they’re waiting until a good ways into a relationship to start having sex, and you should respect that. You’re lucky that your girlfriend shares your lack of desire to have sex, but many more couples consent to it much sooner because, lo and behold, THEY WANT TO HAVE SEX!

BTW sex is ****ing amazing and you should really get over your ****** excuses and just bang the girl ;)

Hey, not everyone has the same opinion on sex as you. I for one find it disgusting and undesirable. So don’t act like your opinion is fact and try to superimpose it on LostInPhilly89’s relationship.

Now I can’t really tell if Abbey is uncomfortable about having sex, or just worried about Daisy/ her motives. :x

@KT , @Wheat , @LostInPhilly89
Isn’t being an individual great? We all have different experiences, backgrounds, educations, and support groups or lack of any of these with our genetic/ electro-chemical baseline. The only person that can really judge a motive is oneself. We all have been given experiences, which helps us decipher motives, actions, and consequences. Some of us see more positive out comes, some of see only the worse, the rest is mixed and is open to interpretation.

Daisy wants to feel wanted, she has said so blatantly, which is why she originally wanted to be with Augustus. She does feel babied by the group, but she doesn’t know that Paulo skipped (implied) sex with Tess for David put in is mind that he should go out with Daisy on the last few days of the island adventure (That ship blew up when Paulo saw Daisy and Abby holding hands). Daisy could be proving herself to others (which usually is very bad in my mind), proving something to herself (which people do all the time for different reason), or feels like she really just wants to share something special with Abby (but they need to communicate more about that, and we’ll see that in the next few pages).
@LostInPhilly89 What works for you works for you. *jazz hands for good communication*
@Wheat What works for you works for you. *Jazz hands for confidence in your desires*
@KT… (no jazz hands atm.) “Disgusting and undesirable” are tail-tells to me, from past conversations with different people that they have been under heavy influence sex=evil and lack of education… not saying I don’t know people that fully know everything but find their own ****** or ***** to be the most disgusting abomination of excrimate-leaking-appendage. I suggest more introspection, unless you’re affirmed in your thoughts… then in that case, IGNORE EVERYTHING I JUST TYPED. *Jazz hands for knowing what up with yourself*
-Disgusting and undesirable- is not the same as un-enjoyable.
I don’t enjoy sex, but I enjoy having a happy partner.

I can tell that BCB is realistic because ALL of the characters are stupid at some point.

@Wolf Haley: That’s a thing that happens with webcomics. You can only put so much content into so much time. :p
