I saw a classmate of mine on an alternative-porn website. She’s talked about it before, but I had never ventured to look. So when I saw her on my screen, made-up and nude, I felt
almost pervy, because she didn’t really invite me to see it and I don’t know how to compliment someone’s nakedness.
This makes me think of one of my first times at a gym. I walked into the men’s locker room and immediately saw one of the personal trainers and all his man-business. I gasped and ran out. Later, I tried to duck out of the building, so I wouldn’t see him on my way out, but he was in the hallway and there was no other choice but to proceed into the awkwardness. He smiled at me and said, “You probably don’t recognize me. I look different with my clothes on.”
