Oh no -- you guys are really underestimating women older than you. I am 47 and part of a generation that was part of the explosion of the internet. Careful, don't alienate a group of women who are internet savvy and have a host of material you could really take advantage of like dating as a single parent, or while in pre menopause, etc. Such much needed dialogue in that realm!

my thoughts on what to call the first weird sex experience exactly what itwas already being referred to: "Puke Dick" referring to it as the 'Move' not referring to the guy. Plus this might save the poor guy from it being a nick name for him because the name is placed on the move and not onto him. 'Puke Dick' - When vomiting occurs while performing felatio. (However it is spelled, I'm not sure. But you get the point) So, save the poor guy and relieve him of the name and adopt it to a national term of the sexual experience instead. Win-Win👍
