"I don't think people typically cut themselves entirely off from society for very long after getting married. Maybe if they're, like, super rich. Which I guess they are."

"I guess maybe I'm reading too much into all the monogamy rules but I'd expect their wives to not want me around, given how they think about things?"

Permalink

"...okay? I don't really see why."

Permalink

" - because they think it's, like, betraying your spouse, to have a boyfriend."

Permalink

" - ohhhh, are you - okay. Uh. That. Makes - both more and less sense."

Permalink

"...huh?"

Permalink

"Uh, I understand why you would want to stay away from Fazil and Mahdi if they were gonna get married and you're - involved - but I would have expected you to, like, agree that this is reasonable? Given Osirion's whole - everything?"

Permalink

"- In Osirion you don't have to dump your boyfriends to get married."

Permalink

"Oh. Okay. I was - kind of assuming you people were serious enough about not having sex outside of marriage that you wouldn't have had boyfriends in the first place, but, you know, obviously I'm very confused. - I should maybe not be making assumptions about how you're using the word boyfriends, I'm really just pretty confused about - everything in this conversation - "

Permalink

"Okay. - sorry."

Permalink

"I mean, I don't know why, I'm the one asking probably dumb questions."

Permalink

"Your questions aren't dumb, I just don't know how to talk about sex with a woman using ...words instead of gestures at existing shared concepts."

Permalink

"That makes sense. I am - also not finding this conversation particularly non-awkward. Honestly."

Permalink

"I dunno if it's important and we should forge through or - not important and we should give up."

Permalink

"Pff. Uh. Maybe - take a break for now and if you recover or if it comes up again we can attempt an explanation with slightly less starting confusion?"

Permalink

"Okay."

Permalink

"Okay. ...you need anything else?"

Permalink

"Nah."

Permalink

"Cool. Uh, come by if you need any knots tied, then, I guess."

Permalink

"Guess you can pass it along if anyone says they like me."

Permalink

"Yeah. I will. Should I be going to any great lengths to find this information, or did you actually wanna look for the gate and stuff - "
