Here's an example of a great conversation I was having with one of my male friends recently:
He knows what I do for a living, as he has a bit of an alternative - but unrelated - career himself, but doesn't personally know much about the hobby community. I happened to mention to him what "Greek" meant in hobby terminology, as well as that there were many ladies out there who, not only offer it, but charge an extra 100 or sometimes 150 for it. He suddenly turned from the basketball game he had been completelty enthralled in and said, "now THAT's some useful information!"
I couldn't help myself, it was just super hilarious to me. We continued to talk about it, and I happened to mention that I personally was not into visiting the Greek islands and didn't offer it, no matter how much extra I could have charged. He then leaned in and said to me in a conspiratorial manner, "I'm not really into it either, but in front of my guy friends, I am."
Once again, I laughed my ass off. After that, I was inspired with the following:
