Oh the agony: Stop this poking about my sexploits

A tongue-in-cheek advice column

Yolisa Mkele and Nina Hastie

My friend’s mother often questions me about my sexual exploits. I think it’s inappropriate. How do I get her to stop without being rude?
YOLISA MKELEOne wonders what circumstances brought about this relationship? The conversation is inappropriate.
Getting her to stop depends on how badly you want her to stop. Some light squirming will indicate you are only mildly uncomfortable while retching should send home the message that this is no longer a fun topic of conversation.
I would suggest you worry less about being rude and more about why she wants to know.
NINA HASTIEOld people these days, they don’t make them like they used to. They check our Facebook statuses and hunt us down on other social media sites.
Does she want a blow-by-blow account? Does she want to be tagged in naked selfies? Does she want you to scream her name when you twerk?
In my experience the best way to deal with her is to give her what she wants.
My mom used to phone and ask me what I was doing late at night. Once I told her: having a threesome with two Argentinian soccer fans. She never asked again.
