Funky Winkerbean

You can almost hear Batiuk saying: "We interrupt the 'Jennifer Darling chides Darin Fairgood into finding out that Lisa Moore is his biological mother' storyline to bring you a sensitive and educational subplot about teen sex."

I like the look of horror on Darin's face in panel three and the fact that Jennifer phrases her question as though she's tried to get some out of him before and he just won't put out.

True story: I had a gay male friend in college who had dated a girl in high school for two years without going further than first base. One day they decided to go heterosexually all the way. They made out a bit, he felt her vagina and went to the bathroom to throw up and cry. They're still friends. If that's the way this plotline is going for Funky Winkerbean, I'm all ears.
