If I am with a guy and we are getting close and he gets aroused, is it my responsibility to do something about it (to him) or is it fine to just not do anything and let him wait it out? this seems like a weird question but I was in a very pushy, forceful relationship and that is all I know from.

Let's try this out so you can answer your own question. [Smile]

If a guy is with you, and YOU get very aroused -- and that includes common body responses like your clitoral glans becoming erect or your vagina lubricating -- is it his responsibility to do something about it, to you?

Also just thought of another similar example that may help you out here.

You're hanging out with a friend. Your stomach starts to grumble because you're hungry.

Should they be expected to feed you?
