I love the conversations you have with your husband. They always make me laugh.

I watch Maury anytime I have a day off of work…as long as it doesnt conflict with Dr. Phil, I’m golden.

remember though that she doesn’t necessarily know the precise 72-hour period during which she conceived.  So she’s probably estimating based on a few weeks. I mean, it’s still gross, but it’s not as bad to be with 12 men over, say 3 weeks than over 3 days

I always think the same thing! But then I try to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that they either don’t know you can only get pregnant for like 72 hours and/or they don’t know when they ovulated so they assume it could be ANY guy they slept with during that month. And then I try to be REALLY generous and assume they have a crazy long cycle, like let’s say 36 days, which is 5 weeks. Which means really she ONLY had sex with 2-3 guys/week– on the sly no less–.. which makes it like Level 7 Stealth Sluttery at best… 🙂

@SarahCF:  +1

And the way American culture is going, situations like this don’t even raise an eyebrow for me. She’s probably not the only one of her friends with a long roster of bedmates (and I don’t think it’s any better that her male friends likely have matching length lists, too) I can visualize how she dresses, does her hair and makeup, and I bet I’m not too far off, either. But, y’know, how dare we ever judge anything ever… just do whatever feels good in the moment, and don’t forget to spend spend spend, that’s what “freedom” was meant for, right?

Wait, you can only get pregnant within a 72 hour window?  O.o I was taught that you can get pregnant any time of the month, even on your period.  Then again, I went to school in a state that was abstinence-only at the time (and thankfully, it no longer is), and I’m STILL finding out things that I should know, but never did. 

 

I’m guessing that there are loads of people who do not know this, and that includes the show’s writers as well as its guests.  That woman was probably taught wrong (like me, apparently O.o) and just brought in every guy she slept with between her last period and the missed one.

 

This is one of those things that make me think the whole show is fake and everyone on it is an actor.  The whole show is so gross and everyone featured on it is so stupid and/or insane that I have trouble believing these people actually exist.

 

On the off-chance it is real, though… I’m all for doing what you want sexually.  Tie somebody to the bed, take it in the ass, bang as many people as you want… but for fuck’s sake (pun semi-intended), be responsible!  How stupid do you have to be to fuck 8 guys and not use protection?!  I know BC isn’t always perfect, but seriously!  Use a goddamn condom!  Double up!  Or at least stay home and if you’re still horny go buy a damn vibrator!

We get a lot of Maury repeats over here! I think my favourite ever one was the woman who had 27 men tested over 3 or 4 shows and none of them were the father. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

@kittyfinn:  This, more or less. Although Kittyfinn, you do also know that if you use two condoms the friction between the two makes it more likely to break, right? You’re better off with one condom, or a condom + something else (birth control, charting, sponge, etc). I’m not trying to be patronizing, but you noted having been misinformed and said something about “double up” so I just wanted to chime in on that.

 

Anyway. 

I’m not going to slut shame anyone. Fuck whomever you want, and however many people works for you consentually. But be smart about your health. Protection is key.

@kittyfinn:  You can theoretically ovulate at any time of the month, but you can’t get pregnant if you don’t ovulate. An egg only survives for ~24 hours after ovulation, and sperm can live for several days inside you, so that makes a window of possibility of about ~72 hours.

@Mrs.LemonDrop:  I think she means double up as in, use both birth control AND a condom. I hope.

That is a LOT of sex to be having. Like, a lot. If you have sex with so many different people that you don’t know who the father of your child is and you test EIGHT men and it’s none of them? Maybe back off the banging for a little bit. Have an introspective moment or two. Go to the spa. Something.

@Mrs.LemonDrop:  Oh, I know that it’s a bad idea to use 2 condoms at once.  I actually wrote something about using BCP, but wound up deleting it but leaving the “double up!” part in.  Oooops. 

And now it’s too late to edit.  Crap.

It could be a matter of several weeks difference. I carried my 3 children 9 1/2 months, 10 months and almost 10 1/2 respectively. With my last the doctor was telling me I conceived AFTER I was already having positive pregnancy tests so it’s not an exact science!
