CLEO (Malaysia) - - BODY & SOUL -

friend likes to make sex­ual in­nu­en­dos about my new girl­friend. I don’t want to be overly pos­ses­sive but things get un­com­fort­able real quick. How can I tell him to back off? Start off with a joc­u­lar “totes in­ap­propes, bro”. If he still doesn’t take the hint, have a word with him in pri­vate. Don’t snap at him in com­pany as it will feel like an em­bar­rass­ing ver­bal smack down. In­stead, fo­cus on your feel­ings as op­posed to his char­ac­ter. He might very well have no idea how un­com­fort­able it makes you, and a po­litely framed re­quest, “Can you please pull back on the sex talk about X?”, should do the trick. End with a fist bump so he knows you’re all good.
