Honesty’s the best policy, blah blah and blah. There is such a thing as TMI and FTW to those of you who believe you have to be 100% honest to the point of overbearing. Mystery’s just as exciting and important an element to any kind of relationship, long-term, short-term, monogamous, or poly as intimacy. In fact, trust sometimes has to be proven by willing to let the other person have a secret or a tick or a fetish that defies explanation. And really, there are just some things that nobody needs to know. Not going to sugar coat it for you, ladies. This Dude’s List, we’re going to be getting a little grimy. Brace yourself:
Was it that painful? Do you need to go shower now? I feel like I do. Some of these things it’s too late to undo. Once you learn something, you’ll never be able to completely expunge the neural change committed to the brain because those pesky synapses already fired. The best I can hope is that this list serves as a tool for those of you in danger of crossing these lines. I’m all for intimacy, in knowing, trusting, and engrossing yourself in someone completely. But I still want you to keep that damn bathroom door closed!
