He *might* be thinking he needs to be careful. Considering his size and possible god strength, he could accidentally put her through the wall with a shove-off.
Except the other "him" (One mind two bodies) didn't mind pulling a girl's hair so hard that she automatically stood up and moved away from him. Which can't exactly have been painless rather than just grabbing her by the shoulder.

Again I can't help thinking that we the readers are putting more effort into understanding what is going on in the comic than the people who created it put into writing it in the first place.

Some others have noted, so forgive me echoing their sentiments: the horrible and repulsive implications of every character choice and every story turn seem to be formed from lazy and/or bad writing, rather than advocating for the abhorrent actions. It is just unfortunate that we seemingly do put in more thought than the actual writers, so it can lead to some negative assumptions.

I think that's what irks me about this update - this particular male Teddy needing rescue. I'm glad the crisis was averted - but why couldn't he have knocked Naomi off of him? (Lord knows, especially how he is now, he could have easily accomplished that). Is it because men shouldn't lay there hands on women - even if the situation calls for it (such as, a woman refusing to accept a guy doesn't want to bone her and trying to force him into it)?

So, in this comic's reality, it's totally okay to take advantage of people who are clearly under some supernatural influence that makes them want to sleep with people they wouldn't give the time of day to - because, it's being 'helpful'; but God forbid a guy push a sexually aggressive girl off of him when he doesn't want to bone her, because a guy daring to defend himself against a girl forcing herself on him is, apparently, crossing the line. 8-|
It's interesting you read it that way. I found myself thinking differently. He just snapped out of his demon persona, finds himself naked with Naomi screaming at him for sex, and he's confused and trying to reason with her. He's clearly not at the "okay, that's enough dammit!" stage, because it's complicated. It could also be made a case that he was also focusing on getting Teddi over in time which......no one mentions how fast that was? There's no time skip here, each panel was happening in real time from when demon Teddy opened the door and when female Teddi pulls Naomi away from Teddy. Apparently one of his/her new powers is to run like The Flash.

You guys read into this stuff way too deep.

Yeah, he was trying reason with her - as in, doesn't want sex and trying to talk her out of it. Naomi was having no part of it. It took Teddi to barge in the room and physically wrench Naomi off of Teddy before she finally stopped what she was doing. And I don't think it was even Teddy sending Teddi a message to save him; more like Teddi saw what was happening and booked it to stop Naomi before things went too far (remember - they're the same person split into two bodies, they see/hear what the other is up to). And if Teddi was in such a panicked state to stop anything from happening, what does it tell you about how Teddy felt about the situation? He wasn't trying to process what was going on (as it was obvious), he was trying to stop it.

But, again, there was literally nothing stopping Teddy from handling the situation himself by pushing Naomi away from him and fleeing the scene (and sorry - not buying the 'he's probably super powerful and doesn't want to hurt her' excuse; as we've seen no example of how strong he may/may not be).

Until this update I had already mentally concluded that the two Ted's had their respective revelations about "OMG sex has consequences" at the same time, being that they are supposed to have that simultaneous seeing-talking link anyway - but that little fact seems to have been sidelined since this strip and in any case reading back and checking, the whole God-training thing Teddi went through seems to have suggested more time has passed for her since the revelation than for Teddy. Then again, seeing as Teddi is wearing exactly what she was at the club when we last saw her getting her co-workers to give Charity a lapdance, and that if I recall correctly it was inferred that the apartment was close by to her workplace, so that could explain her swift, out of breath arrival.

I really hope not. Things were just about to get interesting.

All I was saying is he wasn't at the point where he concluded reason was out the window....and fleeing his own apartment and leaving her alone and vulnerable? Eesh. I can't imagine the flak the writers would get for having that for an update. :))

I think this was handled as well as it could have been, and it helps the next major plot point along. Teddy can't really explain this away and Naomi won't drop it. So the cats out of the bag and we can finally move Naomi's part in the story along. At this point there's not much left to the story except concluding Chloe's arc, Teddy completing his pact, and how that factors into what is happening to Teddy. Otherwise all the important characters are present and ready to be a part of the big finale. That is, if they're still planning on concluding this in the next few months.

@Otaku247 - Great points. I had forgotten about how close the apartment was to the strip club.

Wonder how Naomi will rationlize this with her alien conspiracy. Either she'll finally find out what's been really going on or dismiss this as alien replication.
Or, she could decide to go for the simplest explanation: that Teddi was "standing in" for Teddy while the latter went off somewhere to bulk up, for some reason. No aliens or magic needed.

Which means that Teddi must obviously be Teddy's cousin, who had been carefully briefed, in order to cover up what really happened.

And Teddi couldn't bring a condom? Needs to have all that sex to get stronger and doesn't think, condom? :p

To be honest, it is always a pet peeve of mine to see someone kiss someone else's chest
... What?! Why?!?!?!
I don't quite know. I just find it creepy.
Doesn't everyone have something that they dislike for reasons that aren't clear, even to them?
This is the most tragic thing I’ve read today. So sorry, OoO.

But hey, I got over my irrational revulsion of pepper grinders being pretentiously shoved in my face by waiters in middle tier restaurants so maybe there is hope for your bizarre pet peeve as well.

It would be a very simple explanation, wouldn't it?

Unfortunately, this comic doesn't seem to go with the most simple/believable solutions in most situations - so, expect the Teds to come up with some BS mental gymnastics in order to explain this new revelation, leaving Naomi all the more suspicious.

through the door?
Pointless arguing is one of the three pillars upon which the Internet is built. The other two are of course cat pictures and porn.

On the topic of this plot development...

Yes, this is the perfect opportunity for Ted to explain away a lot of things. “Yeah I have a cousin!” or whatever would be workable enough.

But, I’m actually hoping they don’t go that road. It feels more like this is Confession Time. If I’m right, here is where Naomi gets folded into the main plot.
