"Doing the Laundry"

A young couple got married. On their honeymoon, they were very anxious to consummate the marriage because they were both virgins. They had saved themselves for the right partner and for marriage. Because of their sexual inexperience, they were a bit uncomfortable discussing the subject so they came up with the term "doing the laundry" to use in place of "making love" or "having sex." This made them both more comfortable with the whole concept.

Well, the first night of their honeymoon was wonderful. They both had many years of pent up sexual frustration to expend so they "did the laundry" no less than 5 times that first night, and finally fell asleep together completely exhausted. In the middle of the night the new husband woke up and he was ready to do the laundry again. He gently shook his new wife and asked her, "Can we do the laundry again?" but she was very tired, and all of this new abrasive activity had taken its toll on her body. She told him that she just couldn't do it again just yet. Maybe in the morning.

A few hours later the new wife awoke feeling very guilty. Her new husband had saved himself for her for many years. What he had asked for wasn't unreasonable, and she decided she should go ahead and "do the laundry" with him again. She gently shook him and said, "Honey, I'm sorry I denied you... we can do the laundry again if you want,"

He replied, "That's ok... It was a small load... I did it by hand."
