That's true for many people in our shared social circles, but the one who almost asked (I assume... maybe she only wanted to know what toothpaste brand he uses) is a friend, to both of us, and to my family. I wish he had pushed the conversation forward, but he said he wasn't quite sure what to answer. We came up with, "We have a very special connection but we aren't doing anything behind her husband's back." Then we had a laugh at how silly it was to be so vague, when the alternative might be, "At her husband's request, I don't put my penis in her; only my fingers." Whose business is it, anyway? :-)
