That’s right. Five whole days until it’s impossible to get a restaurant table. And forget getting seen with any of your new friends, making Saturday plans on Valentine’s Day just adds a whole new level of complicated to a casual or pre-what-are-we-conversation relationship. Best avoided. I recommend volunteering to babysit for your coupled-and-progenied friends!
And there’s this.
It’s that time of year, again! When your eyes are assaulted by red and pink in all the shop windows, and when the conditioning to associate chocolate with sex kicks into high gear. (Man, I could use some chocolate, right about now…)
It’s almost Valentine’s Day! And in honor of that, we here are TMXS are taking off our lazy hat and putting on our re-purpose apron. That’s right, we are going to give you a countdown to the big day itself, when we will introduce our first new comic of 2015!
And it’s not that I’ve been totally lazy, if you’re wondering where the regular posts went. (Dare I flatter myself that you’ve wondered?) In the few months since regular updates stopped happening I moved countries, fulfilled two separate performance contracts in different states and saw a workshop production of a show that I’m writing go up across the pond. #humblebrag
But really the reason why I took a break was a nice dose of heartache. No, not another failed attempt at a relationship (although that happened, too), but some genuine TMXS-related heartache. We got rejected for a grant that would have made TMXS: The Series become reality right at your fingertips, and after riding that roller coaster of emotions it was time for a little break.
But like anyone who ignores the notion that insanity is the doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results, we’re back! After all, isn’t that what love is all about?
Wow! Turns out finishing a masters program makes one busy. But I’m happy to report the degree is complete, and I’ve bid goodbye to bonny Scotland and returned to the hustle and bustle of New York City. And that means back to business! We’ll be switching our posts to every Tuesday and Thursday, so that I can expend some of my TMXS energy on developing some new plans for the site. More to come on that soon.
But now, the reason why we’re all here. The quote of the day! So, are you ready?
In all honesty, some people take a long-ass time to get ready. She could be one of those people. But this guy still sounds like a tool. Nap time? Wake up, dude, and recognize all that fuss was for you! Next, she’ll take less time and he’ll tell her she’s letting herself go.

There are several elements to this submission that (for me, at least) make it one of our most confusing, ever.
Wait a minute… did he just accuse her of being a rapist? Is she a rapist? If the genders were reversed, would we perceive this scenario differently? Somehow, since she was the one who submitted this quote, I suspect she had no idea he wasn’t into their physical relationship. But seriously. What the hell is going on there? Why was he having sex with her? Guys, gals, folks in between: don’t have sex with people you don’t want to have sex with! Relationships are complicated enough.
Or what if she was, like, his dominatrix or something, and this was part of their role play….
