Helene’s sex education had… um… shall we say… gaps. And here she was, about to go out on a date with her first “boyfriend”. A boyfriend! She couldn’t believe it!
Her mother gave her some last minute advice:
Boys such as Alphonse have one thing in mind. Just remember that. He’ll be all over you. Boys are like octopuses; arms everywhere. Just watch he doesn’t strangle you with his tentacles.
That got Helene stumped. She went on the date. She was watchful. She wondered the whole time how a boy could possibly strangle someone with his tentacles.
