Joke, I get, but... Zii may not have DiDi's supermodel-Barbie figure, but many people would class her as "enviably slim," and she's got a very attractive face.
Though, should be noted, would a one night stand be considered a sexual relationship? I ask, because, we have no idea what her relationship with Jung is. Just that she had her first time with Jung and she found it great and so every poster is all "Yay Jung! He's the man!" Of course, they could have easily written that she didn't care to have those books spoken in her ear, then would they be all "Awww, Jung what were you thinking?"
A one-night stand is a relationship, just a very short one... But anyway, sure, the writers could have said that Ramona disliked that - but they didn't. They gave Jung credit for using his smarts to be a good lover and helping a nervous virgin to enjoy her first time. And whether it was a one-nighter or something longer, she did enjoy it - she says so. He made her happy, and presumably, he himself got the satisfaction of a job well done, at minimum.

So in the end, yes, Yay Jung.

Indeed, though the "hermaphrodite" term may have confused him, one would think he would have subsequently realized that her condition means that physically she is completely female, just with genetics that would have normally caused her to develop as a male were it not for those aspects being shut off.

I think Jung is too much of a businessman to risk alienating a repeat customer unless he knew exactly what he was doing.

Jung presumably got to know Ramona as a customer before they became lovers - and Jung is a smart cookie who observes his customers. He probably noticed her distinctly sexual reaction to mentions of those particular titles, and cheerfully used that to turn her on when the time came.

It's a slightly unusual on-switch, but hey, it works.

Yeah I believe it was Spidrift who said all along that he thought Jung had a sex life that he simply didn't brag about. Some guys are like that.

This IS DIllon we're talking about. You can't tap him with a mere clue stick, you've got to pull out a huge clue-sledgehammer and swing it down on his head with all your might. Takes a lot of effort though, which is why no one has really done it yet. Let someone get pissed off enough at him though...

How much you wanna bet that relationship is still going on?

I never thought that had to be true, I just thought it could be true - and it could be used for comedy whenever G&D got the urge. I imagined Gary and Zii being the ones who'd get gobsmacked, though. But yeah, not everyone with a sex life has to be like Gary or Zii, even in the Ma3 universe.
lordoffiling wrote:How much you wanna bet that relationship is still going on?
Fifty-fifty. Ramona sounds a bit like she's talking in the past tense, but why would they have given up on a good thing?

It could be a fairly relaxed but affectionate ongoing thing. This is Jung we're talking about, after all.

Has Gary been talking about his a lot? I don't recall him really bragging about it.

We've never seen him talk about his love life to Jung, but Jung did once say "hey dude, you're the one who flew off to Paris with a fashion model", so he apparently doesn't keep everything secret.

One can imagine Jung not saying much, just so he can drop a snarky bombshell at just the right moment.

In fact, two plump geeks appear to have managed a sexual relationship with more style and competence than most of the underwear models and soon-to-be-rock stars who make up most of the cast.
It's also a good note that people can be quiet and subtle enough about their sexuality without it being bad. I mean, Didi, Yuki, Sonya, Zii, Matt (these in some sort of a rising order of discord and loudness) and by now even Gary - none of these people are particularly quiet, subtle, and not in-your-face about their sexual experiences. But somehow Junghan managed to stay quiet with it to the point of nobody knowing and still managed to give Ramona a lovely experience without half of the neighbourhood whispering how he's best at sex or better at polishing the pearl than (insert name here).

I'm in fact a little surprised Ramona's the one comfortable with these people enough to 'kiss and tell'.

It will be for Andy, no matter what. He gifted her a 'special' ring and believed she was a porn star in the past.

Well, she is an Ma3 universe character who isn't Jung. And she's acquainted with these people through a shared interest in erotica. And they were talking about sex when she walked into the room. And maybe she was so pleased about how well things went with Jung that she's been bursting for an excuse to tell someone.

But yeah, she's now even broadcast the fact of Jung's prior virginity. Some guys might take that amiss.

Andy is a physically healthy, good-looking young man who is evidently attracted to Ruby. Her best bet would probably be to do the reading and then tell him what to do, politely but precisely. He might feel a little used, but he's unlikely to be complaining by the end of the process.
