Random Stories: The Hitchhiking Incident

image found here


Years ago I had a big, burly boyfriend with a rather colorful past, including a stint in prison for armed robbery (I know, I know!).

After seeing and reading a zillion horrid tales about prisons, I just had to ask him if anyone had ever tried to make him a prison bitch. So we were laying in bed one day just chatting when I asked him about it. He told me that he never had that problem in prison -- his main issue was that he was a big dude, and he was constantly being challenged by others that wanted to say that they were able to beat him in a fight. He said he eventually tired of the fighting and ended up putting himself in solitary confinement to avoid the whole matter.

So I pressed a bit further, wanting COMPLETE clarification on the whole sexual history thing, and casually asked him if he had ever had ANY homosexual experiences, in prison or elsewhere. He paused and said, "Welllllllllllllllllllllll, there was that hitchhiking incident".

Blink.

Gulp.

Inwardly AGHAST at that sentence, I calmly asked him what had happened.

He said he was hitchhiking one day when a male driver with a VW bus stopped and picked him up. They were on the road for a while when the driver asked him if he wanted a blow job. You-know-who told the driver, "Sure" for some reason or other. He told me it was no big deal, but it kind of freaked me out.

Er, how would you have reacted to that story? Just curious.....

Call me nosy, but I like this kind of story...better than reading my Jackie Collins novels! I heard that research shows a very high number of homosexual experience among the 'straight' community...& the no. is climbing... I just hope they play it safe & wear those latex... I miss the episodes of HBO Oz! Hope you have a good Sunday darling~

Well, I think you had bigger worries with that guy than the fact that he was getting blow jobs from free rides. I mean, hitchhiking is dangerous! :-) I don't know if that would have freaked me out. Shows a real thrill seeking attitude though to get in a car with someone strange and then get off - all "alternative style". He might have been bisexual I guess. Or just horny. Honestly, armed robbery charges are what would really have disturbed me, but then I'm soft like that.

Namine said...

i think think that the blow job would have freaked me out more than the armed robbery.

down and out chic said...

sometime and not in comment land, do i have a story for you! oh my.

diane said...

It looks like this guy has made more than one mistake in his life. Being able to talk about it and move on is a really positive thing.

LiLu said...

Um.

SO NOT OKAY.

I mean, it IS okay... there's nothing wrong with it... so long as you admit that you're gay...

Brooke said...

Yeah, I would have been pretty weirded out. More so about the blow job than the armed robbery, as someone else already said. It makes for an interesting story, however!

Farah said...

ummmmm....kaaaaaaaay......*awkward pause*

that would be my reaction! lol, that was sooo weird!!

Andhari said...

I would hang up the phone and splash my face with cold water before i scream loudly and ask my friends to go out for drinks.

Char said...

yeah...a freak out would be in order. that coupled with the already shady past would probably kill the relationship for me.

Missy said...

I think I dated this same guy! LOL

Vivienne said...

No No No. With a story like this in your history, I wouldn't have responded to the "email from ex's" post you referred to.

The armed robbery would have been a dealbreaker if I found out about it BEFORE the relationship started. If it was already chugging along nicely I would think, "Oh, although a big one, everyone makes mistakes."

The casual acceptance of a blow job from a guy giving him a ride would be a huge red flag that this guy doesn't think things through and is impulsive. I would have been out the door faster than you could say "boundary issues"

Gabbi said...

With Lilu, ok as long as he wasn't in denial about it? As to how I would've reacted though, not sure what I would've done but does sound a little like a deal breaker right?

freeteyme said...

Heck NO! and another NO! freakishly BLEH!

Waxy said...

I am seriously confused - the guy is giving him a ride and then wants to do that for him? uh...this guy you dated must have been a vin diesel look alike...

Back when I was a teeneager, and knew that I wasn't all very straight, I asked a boyfriend if he'd had any homosexual encounters (I should mention that I'd been reading a lot of human sexuality text books). He said yes, and that he and his cousin (adopted) had gotten it on a few times, but he didn't find it as exciting as being with a chick.
I told him that it was probably just normal adolescent experimentation, at least on his part. Not that I knew anything back then, but I was probably pretty close to correct ;)

Elizabeth Marie said...

"Sure"
Like, "sure" I like the beach. Or "sure" I'll have another martini.

Notsureimgoingtohomooutrightnow.

WTF.

and this lil story just brightened my sunday night. I don't even wanna know what that says about me....

I hope you had a FABULOUS weekend luvah luvah!

mylittlebecky said...

aaah! pick up jaw off floor! say whaaaaaa? love this story! always like the shockingness of some people's "meh" stories. :)

Tom Tuttle from Tacoma said...

i'd like (like is used cos i have no other words to use) to think nothing surprises me anymore these days. i'm curious if this happened before or after prison. i can totally understand why he'd think it's no big deal. if i were given the chance, i might do the same. you live life once, so why not try everything when you get the chance. i don't have to be horny. being big and burly sure help.

thereddeer said...

I don't think I would of handled that too well.

bananas. said...

uh...WHAAATTT?!? how long after did you break up with "you-know'who" aka mr. "sure"? really, WOW. first of all i'm not so sure i would've been in bed with him in the first place. you're on crazy lady and i like it!

Savvy Gal said...

I would be speechless for a while.... hm...

Iva said...

BLINK.GULP.GASP!

ummm. I'd be freaked out too.Majorly, seriously freaked.

I think the term is 'down low', I saw it on an Oprah episode. Yes. I just wrote that. lol. If I remember its a growing 'statistic'.

The Haute-Shopper said...

If he were bisexual or gay, I probably wouldn't be surprised, but him being a big burly straight man - it just makes me wonder if guys in general get to the point where they're so horny, they don't actually care how or by whom they get serviced. I hear these stories all the time from my gay friends (a guy I know has his fun in public toilets... with strangers).

At least your ex came clean, but wow, that's definitely not the kind of thing you want to hear from someone you're in a relationship with!

creative kerfuffle said...

the fact that he'd just casually accept a blow job (whether the driver was male or female) would freak me the hell out. add to that the fact that he'd been in prison...yeah, i like bad boys but that one would be a little too much for me.

josie(bean) said...

let's just say be thankful you dumped this guy! haha. but at least it did make for a good story for the future indeed

Diana said...

maybe guys just don't care, as long as it's the same thing???

Atomic Lola said...

Well, a mouth is a mouth right? Maybe the guy had long hair so it was easier for him to accept? I mean, as long as he didn't have to look at his manly face.
Although I think if there were any kind of a five o'clock shadow going on, the scrape of the scruff on his skin would be distracting.
I mean, girls experiment with other girls in college right? Is that any different?
All just questions. I never know how I'll react to a situation until I'm in it.
Good story. Made me think.

Phoenix said...

interesting...gotta agree with the earlier comment that I would have reacted to the blow job story with more understanding than the armed robbery... although, honestly, if you felt safe being with this guy there doesn't seem to be much of a problem here.

Now if these things were revealed on the first date...I might have run...

anotherfishinthesea said...

i think the whole combination of elements would have definitely freaked me out. of course, first i would probably have spent 30 minutes arguing that he was trying to trick me so that he could laugh at me and call me gullible. then i might have gotten freaked out after that.

Hanako66 said...

good lord I don't know what I would have done if I heard that..."no problems in prison with soap, BUT some guys asked me once if I wanted a BJ and I say sure"...how long were you together after that?!

Felicia|DaLipstickBandit said...

i wanna hear christina's story.

my reaction...the same as yours...this is an ex bf..lol

...love Maegan said...

GAY
ALL
DAY

Sam said...

Call me weird but I totally expect every guy to have had an experience of a guy on guy type of nature. It doesn't shock me at all - however, I still wouldn't be particularly keen on discussing it at length with him.

alissa said...

i wouldve reacted more to the hitchhiking than the blow job!
but also - im glad you're no longer in that relationship :)

TERI REES WANG said...

You know when 'they' say..there are no coincidences?..

Well, if you are sleeping with some dude named "Trouble", it's pretty probable that "Trouble" has been sleeping with some other dude named "Trouble". It happens.

Trouble + Trouble = Chain-O-Trouble!

...and yes it takes one to know one.
.and like begets like..and..maybe just maybe we should be calling you
"Drama-girl"..instead of Drollgirl.

Break the Chain!
Be well. Stay sane.

Jack Daniel said...

Ewwwwww. I will behave like a gentleman for the rest of my life because I don't ever wanna go to prison. Ewwwwwww.

San Francisco Stylephile said...

GASP. This is SO JUICY!!!

TERI REES WANG said...

P.S. No 'sucky-wucky' while steering.

Kristen Sara said...

Hmmm.... that's definitely interesting... I think I probably would've laid there, without being able to react at all because it's.... interesting.

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Um, I would be super freaked out. And gotten out of bed. Sorry :(
