    Default mark on the trousers?

    hi

    i was reading a novel
    and there's a gay named "Mark" in the story

    and in the story, people just made fun of his name
    they said something like "mark on the trousers"
    in the story, "mark on the trousers" seemed to be a joke
    but I don't really understand why
    does "mark on the trousers" mean something funny?

    please help me
    thanks a lot

    You do mean a gay guy, and not 'a guy'?

    A possibility does come to mind; but it's best to check: what has happened, what is the situation in the novel when this reference is first made?

    i'm sorry
    should be "guy", not "gay"

    there were three person in the conversation
    a single mom, and her son
    and Mark was her new boyfriend

    and that mom introduced Mark to her son
    then she made that "mark on the trousers" joke

    and obviously, mark and her son didn't think it was funny
    but mon kept laughing

    that's how it happened

    The (single) mom is laughing about how the son 'happened', or at least, how she and the progenitor tried for him not to happen.
    Look up coitus interruptus


    Anyone want to go into the details?

    i looked up coitus interruptus
    and now I understood what it mean

    but I still can't see the connection between "coitus interruptus" and "mark on the trousers"

    can you give me more details

    thanks a lot

    All: Don't wait with baited breath.

    Ah, this accur-sed British Reserve, fueled by the 'not knowing' of how old or what sex you are, papermoon - never mind having a sense (rightly or mistakenly) of the sensibilities born of the Chinese culture.

    I'll send a PM tomorrow.

    Anyone else want to anticipate, publicly?

    I'm presuming you sincerely want to know and are not some troll seeing how far we'll go with information on this site...


    Here is the very blunt and very explicit explanation....



    (spoiler space..........Do not scroll past here if you're easily offended)......









    "Mom" excited her boyfriend during foreplay but did not have actual intercourse with him. He ejaculated into his trousers, thus the "mark" in his jeans.




    OK, I must now go wash my mouth out with soap.....

    thanks, David and Ouisch

    now I get it.
    I didn't know the answer will be so "adult"

    I hope my question didn't offend anyone

    thanks for your help
