Dumb Guy: So after a guy sees this card, do they double bag it?He said it in such a weird way that it took me a few seconds to figure out what he was talking about. Lilith came back from the bar at this point, which was good because a drink was really needed for this conversation.
Jezebel: Excuse me?
Dumb Guy: Um...I mean...uh...I was just asking...It's funny and sad that both of us thought 'two condoms at once? bad idea!' before we thought 'wow, what an obnoxious slut-shaming thing to say'. The guy was stumbling all over himself trying to backpedal, but there's really no way to clarify your way out of a comment like that.
Jezebel: You know that's not a good idea. It isn't safe.
Lilith: What are we talking about?
Jezebel: Well, he was just asking if guys use two condoms with us after they find out that we're "evil sluts".
Lilith: It's not a good idea to use two condoms. It's unsafe.
Dumb Guy: Oh...um, right...yeah. Well...um, I was just saying...I didn't mean...
So first we schooled the guys about the myth that two condoms are better than one. (We're sure most of you know this condom 101 stuff, but in case anyone doesn't, it's a bad idea because using two condoms creates more friction and that makes it more likely that one or both of them will break.) Then we moved on to the lesson about how slut-shaming a woman is not usually the way to her heart. And we finally we got all advanced by pointing out that a woman being "slutty" does not mean that she has any STDs, especially when she apparently knows a lot more about condoms than you do.
This is how the conversation ended:
Dumb Guy: So if you come here a lot, maybe we could hang out again soon?
Jezebel: Do you promise not to call us diseased whores next time?
Dumb Guy: Um, yeah. Right. Sorry about that.
Lilith: We'll think about it.*
All in a night's work for us.
*Spoiler Alert: We haven't really thought about it.
