His Take questions are answered by our panel of smart, opinionated, and funny dudes.
Brian: Is this one of those “I’m just asking for a friend” kind of questions? Either way, it sounds like you have something that works for the present and may continue to work for months or years down the road. But if you want to know when you’re going to get bored of it, what does that matter? The only explanation I can think of is you’re worried about getting burned, but you have to keep in mind that, when this fizzles, burns or flames out spec-fuckin-tacularly, the worst that will happen is a whole bunch of nothing. You won’t miss seeing someone you don’t ever see anyway. You won’t miss long-winded romantic emails from a person who… doesn’t send long-winded romantic emails. The time it will take to move on? I give it two hours.
Also, if you think people get bored of seeing crotch photos of the same crotches, look up the figures for how many people follow a specific porn star on Twitter, hoping for Round 26,779 of the same cleavage close-up.
Guy Friday: There are guys who will regularly pay for webcam shows and buy DVDs of the same porn actress doing lots of different things, so I’m not sure there’s actually a usual cut-off date for watching the same person do sexual stuff; it just kind of ends when it stops being fun anymore. Like most sexual things, I’m of the belief that it can’t go on indefinitely without someone developing feelings for the other person and wanting more, but then again I haven’t had long-term sexting relationships, so what do I know? If you’re not going to pick the guy out of a lineup fully clothed, then roll with it until either of you doesn’t want to anymore.
Drew: Why is this written in the third person? And why the hypothetical language? Is it possible someone’s concerned aunt is writing this on behalf of her teenage niece? I say that because someone’s aunt is the only person who would use the word “crotches.” Regardless, I’m totally grossed out. Tell your niece to stop texting pictures of her hoo-hah to random dudes. And while we’re at it, I don’t want you getting any funny ideas. You keep your crotch in your pants, lady. You’re someone’s aunt for chrissakes.
