    I'm doing a poll for my friend.

    A condom mishap! You take the morning after pill, and you feel ill, you didn't ejaculate into your own vagina but you get little sympathy, no phone call or text msg from the ejaculator.

    MEN OF TRIBE: How much involvement do you have? Do you pay for it? Do you go in when she's buying it? Do you rent a movie if she feels ill?

    wouldnt it be ummm kind of a each situation is different?

    like one night stand ?

    just dinking ?

    new relationship.

    accountability is largely based upon how well someone knows someone else.
    and compassion is largely indicative of the individual.

    so unless you are looking for the Seinfeld etiquette guide on the morning after pill, id say the basic logic applies as it does with most situations like this, and your friend should decide on what she feels is decent of the person, and if he comes up short* then maybe he doesnt fall under ' decent guy i let blow his load in me with no protection on '.


    * no pun intended.

    This sounds like an episode of Degrassi Junior High.

    if he liked it, he should have put a nuvaring in it.

    yeah, depends on the relationship, depends on the guy, depends on the 'encounter', etc.

    The guy, out of self preservation in the least, should be footing the bill.

    As for the girl, if he goes MIA for more than a week, consider the situation a blessing in disguise and he happy someone like that is gone from your life.

    sounds like a swell fella, ignoring her, when her mind's obviously going crazy right now.

    what is their facebook relationship status? That is the most important criteria before I can offer any advice.

    Did she always pay half for the condoms? Did she always pay half on the dates? If not, she's got to foot the bill for the morning after pill.

    Are people really suffering from their monthly morning after pill expense ballooning? How much do these things cost, it has been awhile since I handed a girl exactly $12.46 (half the cost of a morning after pill a few years back).

    Do adults really worry about this stuff?

    I thought it was only teenagers.

    fear_of_fours should stick to saving people from getting hit by cars instead of getting hit by internal loads.

    Like most adult men, I'd be shitting myself if some broad I banged thought she might be pregnant with my kid.

    If he wrapped it up at least he did the best he could. Did she? she should be on some form of birth control as well (pills, iud, nuvaring whatever) or guess who's paying the $40 to get that morning after pill. You should never expect a man to foot the bill for something you didn't help to prevent either. If you're in a relationship and going bc free, then I would hope that both have a part in the morning-after-pill process as I'm sure (or hope) it would have been discussed as the "what if the condom breaks" conversation of no-baby-right-now talk.

    It's $40. That is twice the cost of a pack of birth control pills a month.

    I think she should pay for it (as long as shes not totally broke). If she was on the pill she wouldnt have expected him to pay for that every month would she?

    but this guy clearly sucks and she should stop banging him, a nice guy that actually cared about her would have been there for her.
