    I happened to see my boss reading his own computer screen on wikipedia's page about douche (anal douche picture included). It is not uncommon for straight guys to wonder nor come out of the closet in their forties. We work in a medical lab. He is married with two kids. I couldn't bring to ask him about it after I delayed a moment to knock on his door. Any thoughts on why this curiosity?! icon_idea.gif

    Maybe he's constipated and doesn't want to do laxatives? Or his wife and he want to experiment? I wouldn't read too much into it.

    Maybe one of his two kids called him a douche, so he was looking it up.

    You should have offered to show him how it's done.

    Why not? The article was interesting. Maybe his wife told him that douching was old fashioned and he wanted to know why.

    Occam's razor –noun The maxim that assumptions introduced to explain a thing must not be multiplied beyond necessity.

    In other words, the most obvious explanation is the best. You work in a medical lab, I doubt very much he doesn't know what a douche is. He is a man in his 40s in a macho culture where homosexuality is probably still inching its way into acceptability. The rest is academic.

    Maybe someone called him that and he was trying to figure out what it meant.



















    (I have to do that, from time to time...)

    Since when are heterosexual men not allowed to enjoy prostate stimulation?

    Adult stores have actually reported an increase in prostate stimulators and dildos among the heterosexual male community...

    It's common- just not openly discussed because people still see anal exploration as a 'gay-thing.'

    I honestly didn't know what a douche was until recently. And I'm a "gay" man. Maybe straight dude and I should Wiki together. Wikipedia, not WikiLeaks.

    OMG! You need A LIFE! It's NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.

    Maybe he just wanted to feel FRESH.

    Lots of options, but I reckon Occam's Razor points to this one.
