Is this an an example of a literal "forced" cliche situation?

Also, I personally have never tasted sperm but I'm pretty sure I can safely guess that it would not taste like hot mayonnaise. You think maybe he would have realized that, unless she just sprayed it on his face or chest. No wait, probably in his eyes so he wouldn't notice the chest wraps before he got in the shower... I'm thinking this way to much at this point.

I was assuming that, yes, Alex got a face full.

And Eloise is really having to put the work in, just to sabotage Sandra's geekitude lessons. (And she must be pretty good at shifting her vocal register.) Not that she seems to mind much, and she may or may not have to do very much with Alex now, but one hopes for her sake that the effort proves measurably effective. Or not, given that she's being evil.

Nice art today, incidentally. Eisu's style is working for these characters.

Alex seems pretty chill about his ostensible first same sex sexual experience

I think that the confusion and worry came pre-paid with him.

DOes anyone else find it a little ironic that she's putting so much effort into sabotoging his "geek mentorship" with Sandra, when really it's Gary? I mean, as far as I know, Alex is still unaware that Sandra's geek status is stil fairly noob-ish.

Actually, Alex has specifically been appointed Sandra's geek consultant. He all but fought Marie for the job. And he actually gave Sandra his portable console when he discovered that gap in her training. Sandra actually calls him "teacher".

I think that you must have missed a lot of strips.

I wish they'd move on from this stupid plotline.

Why did she switch back to Eloise in the end?

Honestly the issue is... Eloise being as touchy feely with Alex should have blown her cover a long time ago

strictly cause Alex should kinda pick up on that Jean and Eloise Feel the same skin texture wise.

Yes Yes stupidity for the sake of plot and sexual identity confusion Trolol

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

Because the scene between Alex and “Jean” had come to a natural conclusion; it would have been hard for “Jean” to keep Alex from departing without being blatant about it. Whereas, in her female guise, she can initiate a new conversation (and probably a new seduction), and Alex won’t be able to get away so fast, partly because he’s polite and partly because he’ll probably have a subconscious desire to reassert his heterosexual side.

So Alex will likely miss that meeting with Sandra. Which is Eloise’s objective.

Alex is an inexperienced kid... maybe he thinks there's no difference in texture between men and women... it's not about stupidity or "sake of plot" (cos I really hate this term cos it makes it look like the writer's an idiot) but it is about a kid that has no experience in touching people intimately.

Please don't confuse your experience with experiences of other people or characters that you don't know what their mindsets are.
