Well, this was a first.

Strong Bad hesitantly undid his jeans, self-consciously glancing between his hands and Homestar's face- and chest. Naked chest. And mostly naked bottom half. Homestar sat at the head of the bed, leaning back on his hands.

"You know, it won't kill me to wait," he pointed out. Strong Bad shook his head.

"No, I know that. Right. Yes, I know." He sat back and rubbed the back of his neck. "I know. But it's your... Homeschool-activated-you day and that's the closest thing to a birthday you got so I figured that now was a good time."

Homestar smiled and shook his head. "You are so cute sometimes."

Strong Bad snorted. "Well, I kick ass and take names the rest of the time, so I guess being cute sometimes is... acceptable," he muttered, slipping off his mask. He hooked it on the the bed post and made his way to the head of the bed, half lying down. He propped himself up on his elbows. "So... sex with guys. Not really sure how to go about doing... that."

"Well, we don't have to have... sex-sex," Homestar mused. He puffed his chest out proudly. "I did some research, and there's lots of others ways to bring a man to orgasm. There's oral stimulation and, well, hands-"

There was a 'fwump' as Strong Bad pulled a pillow over his head. "Don't talk like that, man!"

Homestar frowned. "But it's true! I watched some videos so I know how to do it, too."

Strong Bad peaked out from under the pillow, eyes narrowed. "...you watched porn?"

"F-for research!" Homestar insisted, his face flushing slightly. "Homeschool wouldn't tell me how so I had to find out from somewhere... if I hadn't I'd never know about blowjobs or handjobs or, heh, people even use their feet." There was another 'fwump'. "Aw, come on! I did all that for you!"

"You looked at porn for me. That's totally believable," Strong Bad said from beneath the pillow. This situation was weird enough without that information coming to light. Homestar sulked for a moment.

"...I just didn't want you to be disappointed," he muttered quietly. "I just wanted it to be good."

Strong Bad pulled the pillow away and looked up at him, before he pushed himself up. "Hey, come on, don't give me sad eyes. You know I hate sad eyes." He placed his hands on the side of Homestar's face and kissed him on the forehead. "You never disappoint me."

Homestar's eyes flicked up to meet his. "Really?"

"Really," Strong Bad insisted. He pulled a hand away and sighed. "... so... how much... research did you do?"

The android grinned a bit wickedly, arms slinking around Strong Bad's waist. "Let me show you."
