I want to take this unique chance as first comment to say again that I think Daisy is shameful for being so desperate and trying so hard to lose her flower.

timticktimtimytim September 4, 2013, 1:32 PM EST.

Comment ID #258428

This is hilarious. I love the fact that Augustus is just caught like a deer in the headlights when he sees Daisy. You can really tell that Augustus wants her to see him in a better light, and she makes him a better person because he almost instantly puts back the item he intended to steal. I do not think that Augustus even noticed that she was holding a box of condoms because it looks to me like he keeps his eyes locked on her own eyes the whole time. I get the feeling he will do a double take and be like “Wait a second, was she holding condoms?!” in the next page. But in this page, he is just too thunderstruck at running into her to really take it all in.

All in all, hilarious! Great way to break the mood from being all serious! :D

Side note: After reading some of the other comments saying how “shameful” it is for Daisy to want to lose her virginity. Please, check yourself. Yeah, it’s a comic, but if some other teenage girl was actually trying to feel better about herself, and she felt she needed to try to do this, or felt she wanted to do this with someone she feels she loves, then who are you to judge? At least she is bothering to use protection and is being smart about it! Do you know how many kids now a days lose their virginity at a very young age just for the sake of being ‘cool’? Do you know how many don’t even bother using protection and don’t care if they get pregnant and then expect the rest of their family to raise their kid who they probably have no clue who the father is? Yeah, a lot! At least she is doing it because she feels she loves him, and is being safe, there is no shame in that. So to all the people who feel this is so horribly negative, just stop and think. Seriously. She’s not a ****, she is a teenager who wants to experiment.

This is why I love Daisy; there can be no evil doings whenever she is around! “Gussie” WAS shoplifting, but the instant he saw that curly cutie-pie, he was all “I can’t…must be good… :(

She brings out the best in everyone…which is why we need a Daisy PLUSHIE!!! If I had the skills, I would soooo make one. But alas, I can only build computers :P

I usually try not to comment my opinions on here, but I just have to say I find it hilarious and ironic that there are people freaking out about Daisy and Abbey possibly losing it to each other. Like none of you ever thought about it at least once in your life, especially in your high school years. Also, since when did Daisy and Augustus date? I don’t remember that at all.

I think the look of ease on Daisy’s face as she finds the condoms is an indication that she’s just anxious of the process of getting from A to B - everyone calling them shameful is ridiculous as this is a pretty decent way to be losing it (safe, consensual, and with love).

I don’t think Augustus even noticed the condoms, I think he was shocked to be caught shoplifting by his one and only. Or maybe he was putting something back? We’ll see.

Well that was awkward…
I don’t think Augustus noticed what Daisy is holding, I think in the next update he’s gonna look back, realize what she is holding and (hopefully/maybe) confront her about it. (Keep in mind I ship Augustus/Daisy more than Abbey/Daisy).
I just wonder how this is gonna work out, like if Daisy and Abbey really do “it” or if Daisy/Abbey (or maybe both) decide they shouldn’t do this. Maybe Augustus will talk to Daisy (if he realizes what she is holding) or Augustus will run into Abbey instead. I’m just excited/anxious to know!

Then as Daisy raises her hands and kinda hides behind the condom box, te song cuts off and there’s just this really awkward silence. And then FFC puts the stolen item back on the shelf and when he runs away the song resumes playing.

Comment ID #258496

To whoever said that none of us can judge her because we’ve all done it, I’m still rocking my own v-card by choice. So yeah, Daisy needs to wait. ^.^

It’s healthy to wait for someone who really cares, and to want it to be special. I’ve had a bunch of people tell me to just give it up because it’s going to suck no matter what and I won’t end up with them anyway.

But that’s not the attitude you should have about it. It’s a gift to be given away for someone committed. Honestly, our generation is gross the way they pal around with everyone and have no regrets. And if Daisy holds out on it, she’ll really be able to tell if he loves her by respecting her decision to wait. You’d be amazed how many guys wait around for it, and use a girl because they can get some.

I think that because girls put out more these days, it makes the guys a lot less willing to really try hard. In the old days a guy would have to court a girl for her affections and really put in the effort to win her heart and her body. Well now, they can get it from anyone, and that just makes them less romantic in dating. And girls wonder why guys don’t try anymore, its because they don’t have to.

Well, of all the things I expected, that wasn’t one of them. In all honesty, I had kinda forgotten about Augustus. Although one must wonder, what was he even doing there? Did he follow them there, or was it just a complete coincidence?
Well, no matter why he’s there, this must be quite a shock for him. Seeing Daisy, the girls he seems to still kinda like, buying condoms, thus symbolizing she’s moving on in her relationship with Abbey…that would be just devastating.
Also, what did he just do there? He put something back from the hidden depths of his jacket?…why would he put it back now? And what was it, anyways?… :x

Pretty disappointing honestly.

I don’t think it’s wrong to want your partner to have a little more class. I’m not saying exactly like me, but numbers matter. If you have self-control over you body, then you’re much more likely to be faithful to your partner. There’s studies on that, but I think it’s mostly because people that wait long before getting physical have more concrete ideas of romance and love. They want to love someone for their soul before they love their body. Besides I’d rather wait to make love, than just have sex when I get an opportunity.

Ehem now that thats out of the way.

I think everyone is forgetting that Daisy was doubting herself in school and asked paulo about his experience. When he warned her against doing it she got mad. When Abbey asked if she was sure, since she looked unsure, she looked at Paulo and then got mad and agreed to it again.

I am looking at this as her just trying to show how adult she is by doing it. If she is having doubts, wont she have regrets later?

It seems to me she is only going through with it to prove a point to paulo…. at least that is how i see it, she just seems desperate to prove she isn’t as childish as everyone says she is.

GracefulSerenity: I don’t think Daisy’s being a **** at all! My issue is that she doesn’t fully understand what she’s going though. There’s a direct correlation between teenagers who experience sex before maturation and teenagers with low self-esteem and emotional issues such as depression. I think Daisy’s heart is in the right place- she wants this because she does really love Abbey- but neither of them are emotionally ready, nor do either of them have any idea about what they’re about to do. Daisy’s sex education wasn’t so great, remember?

lol that image on the purple box. Are those two ridding each other, you know, “doggie” style or is that just me?
I like how Daisy just stares at Aug blankly and says “Hi” like a mechanical reflex or something. The face on Aug is great as well not only because it’s hilarious, but remember who’s the apple of his eye: DAISY!
I can’t help but wonder if he’s thinking, “Hey Daisy if you want to throw down, you know you can always come back to my place. I’ve always wanted for us to get closer.”
Also, did Aug just swipe something off the counter and stick it into his jacket? Is he stealing stuff? One of those, “I won’t tell anyone you bought condoms, if you don’t tell anyone I am swiping crap” things?

Why is Daisy slowly raising the box when he appears?

Whattt September 4, 2013, 8:09 PM EST.

Comment ID #258522

It really upsets me, actually…
as someone who wasn’t given the choice to save their virginity, it really frustrates me to see people toss it away as if it’s nothing….
I’d give ANYTHING, absolutely ANYTHING, to still have mine…

on top of that, it makes me feel so much more valuable to a guy who has saved his virginity… because I know for him that sex has to be something really special… and after being with so many people who it meant so little to and having them treat me so poorly, that is REALLY important to me…
it’s really hard for me to get close to a guy who’s been with lots of girls… I’m to afraid of having things repeated and/or being just another girl to him… and I feel that he saw sex as an object in a sense, just like smoking a cigarette. Why on earth would I want to participate in something like that?

Furthermore, having a guy prove to me that he loves me and respects me enough to wait and not constantly harass me or put me down would be an amazing feeling….

on a non-serious note:
yes Daisy, if you don’t want people to see what you are buying, you should TOTALLY raise the box higher. You silly goose.

I’m sorry that having the guy I trusted with everything painfully rape me and having countless boyfriends afterwards be disappointed in me for not being a virgin made me overly-attached to my virginity— I was just trying to add a little perspective in case one single person on here found it remotely useful, I didn’t mean to ruin your day.

That hornet’s nest in your butt does look painful though… would you like some help getting it out?

I actually think it’s more of a stick up his ***. Maybe even a dirty finger from one of the nasty girls he probably objectify with meaningless sex.

Furthermore, I’m sorry men have been so unkind to you. Remember, while you don’t have your virginity, you can choose purity for your next relationship. Just because something happens once, doesn’t mean you should continue it. Besides, you’ll find that the rare few who want to say no to premarital-sex are the ones who value waiting and will support you no matter what.

Comment ID #258532

thank-you…. that really means a lot more to me than you realize and it’s very good advice… ^^;

================================================== ===========

and for the record allow me to make it clear… I’m sure that some people mutually enjoy premarital sex, and I don’t want to look down upon them in the least.. ^^;; if they’re both happy with it, then although I myself do not enjoy that, to each their own. It’s just the manner in which some people do it… and then there’s this whole generation of bloody 12-year-olds throwing themselves at any living human they can get their hands on… I just… I don’t know… it’s not religious or anything like that, but that just rubs me the wrong way for some reason…

( and had I actually chosen to lose it and lost it to someone who I felt actually saw me as a human-being, then I might not have ended up being so clingy to the concept of non-premarital sex. Having lost it the way I did, I simply feel like waiting till marriage is the easiest way to guarantee that he cares about me and respects me rather than just playing up the charm to get to my trust and consequently me.. )

I also still find it hard to believe that sex could mean very much to someone who has shared it with tons of people.

as an important point: I’m sure there must be differentiation between mutually-enjoyed premarital sex and premarital sex which objectifies one or both of the parties involved..

I don’t like where this is going mainly because one of her motivators seems to be spiting Paulo.

perhaps this is even true for casual sex, but as someone who’s never found non-affectionate sex appealing, I can’t really speak one way or the other on that.

@Seppucrow makes a good point as well.. x:”
Daisy kindof seemed to waver every now and then prior to Paulo, and even after Paulo until she saw him again. It may turn out to be irrelevant, but you never know. ><;

You know what the weird thing is…
I think he took something OUT of his jacket… I mean, that white whatever-it-is was definitely not there before if you look at the side view.
And then he’s all like, “NOPE,” whips this bottle or whatever out and just puts it down and leaves slowly. Maybe he was trying to do this, to give her the bottle or god what even is it.
Anyway. Yea. Don’t mind me, just buyin’ condoms for me an’ my boyfriend that you hate… yea. So. Be seein’ ya.
Best encounter ever. 10 pts.

Comment ID #258562

To clarify my first post. I am not someone who advocates having sex underage, or losing your virginity as soon as possible. Quite the opposite. I am just saying that there is no shame in mutually agreeing to have sex, and being safe about it. As someone who held onto my virginity until just before I turned 21, I am a strong advocate for waiting. However saying that it is shameful for Daisy to try and be safe about it, and doing it because she feels she loves Abbey, and to try and feel better about herself, even if it is misguided, is wrong. She’s a teenager, she makes mistakes like all teens do. At the very least, at least she is not ruining her future by not being safe. Look for the positive in her choices instead of crying “shame shame shame on her!”

Major Zero September 5, 2013, 3:12 AM EST.

Comment ID #258566

After reading all of the above comments, I feel like this is one of those rare moments where I really feel like adding my input, though it may not do good things for me, is a personally desirable thing.

I must mention, I am of the opinion that one should wait to jump into bed with a significant other. but having said conversation with a friend a while ago, she brought up the wonderful point of “Everybody is different”

EVERYBODY is different, some are promiscuous, some are more careful and prefer to wait for marriage, and others like to wait until they feel as though they are serious enough about another, and visa versa. I feel as though it is their choice, whether you agree with that choice or not, it is something that they have the right to.

Personally I have no desire to do anything sexual with my girlfriend, however, that’s me, not everybody else. That is something nobody else can decide for me, and that nobody has the right to shame me for. it is between my girlfriend and I, and frankly, nobody else.

It’s the same with Daisy here, her and Abbey came to a choice mutually, and they’re going about it in the safest possible manner. I do see them both as way too young, however, as an outside viewer, I have no right to judge or shame.

I feel like all of the shaming type comments and views as such are rather the reason, or part of the reason, that there is so much dangerous sex within the teen community, it is seen as shameful to be sexual, therefore many choose to be so secretly. Leaving them with little knowledge on what they are doing, and often without protection, due to others shaming and judging them for buying such items. Creating many more problems.

I could go on a rant about society turning things such as into taboos, and making them even more dangerous than they already are but this is already quite lengthy.

(I also feel as though i should remind the readers, Daisy is a fictional character. Only Taeshi can control her actions, and I have no doubt that no matter what is said here, Daisy will still be doing as Taeshi decides she will. )

Thatonereader September 5, 2013, 3:56 AM EST.

Comment ID #258567

I have to agree with GracefulSerenity on this one. At least Daisy is thinking about the consequences and wanting to use protection. I mean, most girls her age probably (not saying ALL of them think this way) don’t think about college and the problems a baby could cause when trying to get a degree. She’s THINKING about everything. That’s what’s extremely important about this situation. Perhaps both of them need this kind of intimacy to close some wounds and lean on each other (not literally) for support. I in no way promote underage sex, nor am I completely against it. It depends on the situation, but this is still a comic. Perhaps everything will go well for these two. At least I hope. D:
