I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
So, his mistress is leaving him, he's howling like a babe and these other dudes are trying to comfort him.
But one dude is touching his nipple, but like super casual like. I'm laughing because this whole panel is so kinky, but it also seems to be ignoring that fact completely. There's this disconnect.
Why is that dude touching his nipple when it's clearly not calming him down at all?
I feel like is done on purpose, but I can't figure out why.
ETA: 3 panels later, he's still just causally getting felt up, and it's still not helping.
