@steponitvelma Yeah, there really seem to be two camps - the ones who are like, "shouldn't I be enough for him/is that what he really wants/does this count as cheating?" and the ones who say "I wouldn't like it if you consumed other kinds of problematic entertainment, so I don't like this either." I personally have mixed feelings, because on the one hand, I have no problem with people performing sexual acts for money if it's what they want to be doing, but on the other hand, in many cases either it's not what they want to be doing or it's presented in ways that reinforce a lot of things that are problematic about our culture.
So here's a question: why am I less embarrassed about walking in on my husband watching porn than I am about him potentially walking in on me reading Avengers slashfic?
Oh god, my boss just walked by and asked me to explain this to him.
@Shayna If my addiction to advice columns has taught me anything, it's that porn-watching is almost as much of a problem in this country as other people's children, though they are both still dwarfed by whether it's incomprehensibly rude or just exceedingly rude to ask for cash as a wedding gift.

@anachronistique Deathpanel for kid #3, boy or girl.
@Miss Maszkerádi Obamacare for a boy, Gaymarriage for a girl.
@fondue with cheddar Definitely. Whereas it's possible, even routine, to "faire la bise" sort of at arm's length--you grasp each other's forearms and lean in from there.
Now to see what other questions of causality I can answer with "because boobs."
@Scandyhoovian Once I spent a wine-soaked evening in Paris, and I was meeting my friend's other friends and one of them came in for a cheek kiss and I pulled away like, "Whoa, lady, at least get me another glass of wine," and they all laughed at me and my American sensibilities. But they did get me another glass of wine.
