Is it weird to do acroyoga with a friend of the opposite sex? Posted on May 25, 2023 by Anonymous Is it weird to do acroyoga with a friend of the opposite sex?
it's not weird at all
it's common and expected for men and women who want to touch each other to invent reasons why it's okay
So was it weird that it was awkward here
I thought about it, and I’ve done acroyoga moves with my bro’s gf and never thought about it being weird. Neither did they, it was just something to try
I ask because the topic came up and me and my friend sat in silence trying to figure out how to say no.
For context they’re in a relationship, but I have suspected she has feelings for me. I think it was only so awkward because we both know, but have never addressed it.
>For context they’re in a relationship
Not okay. Not at all. You should not have asked.
I didn’t ask. The topic came up, we both had done it in the past and expressed interest in doing it again, and a third friend asked why we don’t do it together. And we didn’t have a good answer
>And we didn’t have a good answer
Her answer should have been "I don't think bf would be comfortable with that"
But it wasn’t. We sat in silence until I finally said something.
You could get her to cheat but you shouldn't.
I think you’re right in both ways
If you genuinely care about this and it's a serious issue,the correct response is just being honest that it is.
>I'm not comfortable with you having that kind of physical contact with other people, I don't like it.
And if they try to probe deeper you just repeat you don't like it and just own that you are indeed being controlling because it's not something you're okay with happening in your relationship as a personal boundary, and if she wants to do that, fine, but she will need to do it in a different relationship.
She'll be dissatisfied and either of you may end up breaking up over it, but that's how boundaries work, it's saying "I won't personally tolerate this behavior and if you want to do it anyways, I won't be party to it.
I’m not in a relationship with her, she has a bf who is part of my friend group.
The topic was only awkward because I think it showed she had feelings for me, but couldn’t come up with an excuse to not partake in acroyoga with me, but also knew she couldn’t do acroyoga because of those feelings, like it’s too intimate to engage in that when you have a crush on the person.
ah! why would you post this op now i miss being a super hero with my ex!!
Sorry anon, I know them feels
which one were you innit?? i want it again!
My gf would hold me up kek, I could hold her but my hips weren’t as flexible at the time so getting them to 90 was a challenge.
It would be weird to do that with a member of the same sex.
Long physical contacts, close collaboration, as well as the fun factor of doing something new at the gym, will inevitably lead to you 2 getting closer and closer.
If you 2 kind of like each other, there is almost no way you wouldn't get boner, leave your hands on her for longer than you should, try to poke or tickle her, start enjoying her smell.
This will either be stopped by one of you, or end in kissing, and perhaps even straight-up fucking.

I’m perfectly able to contain myself, but I think her worry is exactly what you stated.
