I'd first like to state, this topic does have to do with sex, but not describing it, nothing explicit. If there's a problem though please let me know.
In Kevin Smith's "Chasing Amy", the main character, Holden McNeil, falls in love with a lesbian, Alyssa Jones. Alyssa ends up falling for Holden and they end up dating, but here is when the the plot gains a lot of its conflict. Holden starts to have "hold ups" about Alyssa's former boy friends/sexual encounters. (Fingercuffs... hehehehehehe)
I saw this movie again recently, and have found it funny and entertaining in the past. I still do, but now it seems harder to relate to, it's something I haven't thought about much before though. My question: Why care about what your significant other has done in the past, I can see maybe for a disease for example, but sexual exploits?
My question for you guys and gals is, would you care? I personally wouldn't or don't think you should, but is there reason I'm maybe not thinking of on why I should? Or have a "hold up" about? Anyone back up my opinion? I want to see what other people's perceptions/experiences with this are.
At first I found this ridiculous, but then realized I haven't had to much experience in the whole significant other department.
That's why I want to hear other people's opinions.
