:I find it embarrasing when people say I have pet herpes. As for the mating with turtles, I know one person who is convinced I have oral pleasures with my snakes. According too him, I like the fact they constrict and swallow. Idiot.

Now I'm being an idiot!
I'm chuckling to myself, thinking of my circle of friends and family and them referring to my "pet herpes". None of them do- they're either into herps themselves, or are complete repulsed and don't want to even mention the subject.
As for your constricting, swallowing snake, I'll have to admit, I've never thought of it, but that's very funny! Don't let the idiots win. Roll with the punches and answer back with humor. My mom made mention about my mice, and how they've taken a que from me (I have 4 kids, the mice have been equally fertile). Rather than take offense to this unwelcome comment, I offered to allow her to borrow a colony of my mice- perhaps her husband (my stepfather) could take a que from them as well...
Happy Herping!
(or Happy Herpesing!)
