“Ugh,” Ryo grumbled, half-laughing. “We’re all sticky now.” He rolled away from Dee, intent on fetching a damp cloth to clean up with.
“Where’re ya goin’?” Dee tugged his lover back down. “Stay here with me.”
“I just want to get cleaned up.”
“Why? Nothin’ wrong with bein’ a bit sticky; we’ll dry off soon enough, and anyway we’re just gonna get sticky again in a bit so what’s the point of gettin’ clean? Can’t have amazing sex without the stickiness; that’s a known fact.” As if to prove his point, Dee pressed their sticky bodies together and kissed his partner. They practically peeled apart when the kiss ended.
Ryo wrinkled his nose. “How does it not bother you?” He’d always found sex ridiculously messy, but with another man it was even worse.
Dee shrugged lazily. “All it takes is the right attitude. Mind over matter, babe; if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. You should try it; takes away a lot of the stresses in life.”
Sometimes Ryo envied Dee’s relaxed attitude. Maybe his lover had the right idea; Ryo himself stressed over everything. He gave in. What harm did being sticky really do? They could always shower later.
