Unexpected Double Entendres

Someone obviously not in the know used the phrase “Old Guard” today, in some historical context (I forget what exactly). I chuckled to myself. For those of you who don’t know, the “Old Guard” were a group of leathermen — gay men into various elements of what would become known as BDSM — who laid out a lot of the early structures of the BDSM community. They developed the “safe, sane and consensual” tenet, for example. So there you go, a little BDSM history — but the point is, this happens to me a lot. You know, when someone says something that could be seen sexually, you always snicker and maybe mutter “That’s what she said” or something. I’m sure, whoever you are, that you’ve done it. When I hear a kinky double entendre, there is an element of “Haha, that’s a double entendre”, but it’s also kind of like “Haha, I know what that means and you don’t”.

I think this has got to be a negative thing. It’s revelling in being different, sexually, just because I’m different. And that’s not a healthy way to go about discovering one’s sexuality. I feel bad — but rest assured, the double entendre was funny at the time.
