|So where was I? Yea… All eyes on me… |
You know something, when you spend time with funny people, you some how become aware of each and every body part especially when the attention is on you… which I should tell you rarely happens….
So I started thinking about the word masturbation… In the previous part, I had to spell it thrice to get it right… My toe nail to my hair tip all had weird emotions… All this happened in a flash of 5 secs.
But something nice happened, they moved to the next person… maybe they never intended to ask me or realised that I was the only woman present and it might have been awkward to expect me to share or they judged my sex life… Anyway I was relieved. Just how maths teacher skips your number while checking the note book.
The evening went well… We all went back to the youtube fail videos.
I was thinking about my man’s choice of place… Right then one of the gentlemen decided to broaden my knowledge. He said,”Archana, if you ever have a boy child.. don’t let him know that you know that he masturbates.”
I was just a few months into my marriage and having a child was not even in my wildest of dreams. But I heard him carefully… I asked why? He said, “trust me… You shouldn’t.” The whole room somehow agreed to that point. This made me think… We talk about periods and educate men about our things and needs… shouldnt they do the same? So I told him, “I’m gonna be a cool mom… I’ll talk to him about everything… I think we should bring him up in an open environment.”
He shook his head and when I looked around everyone was in a sic. There is something about the boy-code that I like…
Anyway, he continued… “Archana, if he says it’s fevicol… It’s fevicol… Don’t let him know…”
It took me a few seconds to understand what he meant by fevicol.
Ohhhh fevicol!, I said.
He continued, “He is going to do it for the rest of his life and if you have a talk with him… every time he thinks about it your face will pop in his head and I’m sure you don’t want that.”
“Ewwww”, I thought and that explained everything.
That day I realised there is so many things that we don’t know about men and we might never know… I was glad I had a friend who was free enough to share.
And that night I slept worrying about my unborn boy child.
I couldn’t wait to share this to my cousin who has a teenager at home…
And I also wanted the world to know… I waited for the morning…..
