What's the female equivalent of a "cock block?" "Clam slam?" "WAP slap?"

I've heard about Girls Gone Wild producers practices of isolating girls and pressuring them into doing things they don't want by waving money in their face.

That's like... the definition of Gay for Pay ?

I really don't have any problem with somebody deciding to have sex for bucks just like I don't have any problem with somebody deciding to have sex for fun. Well I just don't have any problem with having sex, period.

It's not really about the money. It's about using the money as a way to pressure someone into doing something they don't want to do.

Is this what they mean by star-crossed lovers?

The first chapter I thought this might be fun. Now I'm not so sure. It kind of feels like the old style behavior modification treatment the psychogists gave gay people, to try to make them straight, only in reverse. I also don't like how Fuwa keeps pushing the money in Marika's face to make her do things she doesn't want to do. It gives the story a bit of rape-y vibe.

It's not really like that. Marika was always gay but she's deep in the closet and all Aya is doing is making her admit it (and choosing her as her girlfriend). Aya has a fine tuned Gaydar and knows Marika was gonna do some stupid shit, so she took advantage of that to try and show her da wae. Her methods, however, are pretty dubious but it's not like Marika can't just leave the situation since (at least in the LN) Aya makes it clear that she could just take the money and not do any work. Marika stays because, deep down, it's what she wants but she's a prideful tsundere and admitting that she's been wrong would be a blow to her ego and invalidate all of the energy she's spent protesting. The reason it feels rapey, tho, is just cuz dubcon and tsundere don't go well together.

I'm sure that the author was going for something benign. Howevere it's hard for me to ignore the similarities between Aya's tactics and the 50's style psych treatments of gay people, and stories I've heard about Girls Gone Wild producers practices of isolating girls and pressuring them into doing things they don't want by waving money in their face.

Is it gay to watch lesbian porn with your homies

Not gay, just awkward. Watching porn, of any type, is a solo activity. Or a pregame warm up for a couple's sport.

Yeah. The extra "as a cat" versions of the images are making me worry that this is all in her head and Nora isn't actually a bakenko

In my humble opinion, it's transparently obvious that the author has recently gotten herself a pet cat -- and is adamantly decided to turn every little detail of her interactions with her cute kitty into a yuri fantasy manga story.

By that logic, we'd have to assume she also got herself a hamster at around the same time. Which would be a pretty risky combination, if you ask me.

No. No. She fallen in love with a hamster, at the pet store, while getting her cat.

To quote Janeane Garofalo from The Truth About Cats and Dogs: "You can love your pets, but you can't LOVE your pets".

Well, maybe because it's similar to the other work of the author "There is no Way I Can Have a Lover" and the fact that in both cases, you already know without reading that they will end up together anyway (not a spoiler but my guess and what a bold guess). The question is how did the one denying the dating at first will fall for the other.

Ah I see, it's from them... that one feels boring too, again a case of uninteresting characters and a meh plot. Guess I should just avoid the author in the future then, thanks for the heads up.

have you never seen a ron-com before? The main characters always, ALWAYS!, end up together. The fun is in rooting for them to overcome their character flaws, so they can get there. Sure ron-coms are formulaic and maybe even a bit trite, but they still can be a fun ride..

I wouldn't be on this site if I didn't like rom-coms, but neither of the MCs feel like they'll be able to carry a boring plot (that wouldn't fly if it was a straight guy and a gay girl), nor does any of this feel particularly romantic nor comedic.

IDK I actually like the setup. I'm willing to give it a go. I doubt it will go the distance if they do one day per chapter though. 100 chapters seems too drawn out for such a simple premise.

This just feels... rote. Like I've only read the first chapter and I know exactly where this is all going, and the characters don't feel like they'll make it particularily interesting.

This artist has such great comedic timing. That last panel was perfect.

Hehehe I totally missed Wanko checking out the still empty tea container. That's classic.

Yeah, a metal shed in a thunderstorm seems like a safe place

It actually is, just like how you're safe inside your car in a thunderstorm, since electricity always flows through the path of least resistance.

As long as you don't touch the metal and the ground, to complete a circuit, you're good.

Biggest issue with electricity is being the shortest and most efficient route to the ground. So even if you were to touch the metal, there's a good chance you'd still be fairly safe since the human body provides more resistance than metal does.

Oh course the thunder would knock you for a loop though. That close to a strike it might even do physical damage.

Comforting someone by putting their face in your boobs>>>>>> any other form of comfort

It is an established traditional remedy, known to alleviate all kinds of pains and anxieties.

Hope I'll get to experience it some day.

I hope so too, to comfort someone like that and to get comforted like that. Equivalent exchange if you will.

It's also good way to quiet someone who is complaining to much.

Yay! A honest to goodness happy yuri ending! The other drunk yuri storys' endings were frustrating let downs, but this one warmed my yuri loving heart.
