Extension_Stock6735

My wife and I play dnd and she hasn’t gotten pregnant either. Prevents more than teenage pregnancy apparently. The other stuff we do to make sure we don’t get pregnant are “just in case”.


OrcLuck

I want to point out that you can also teach young ones to play D&D and then you have another player at the table :)


epicarcanoloth

Little children actually really good at DnD.


willteachforlaughs

Husband and I love playing with our now 7 and 4 year old. It's a bit different, and shorter sessions, but they love it!


AdjutantStormy

My cousins, 17 and 14, have yet to fear my puns as DM. Their dad took care of that


ellehcimtheheadachy

My husband I play together too! I should warn you, pregnancy can really mess with your dnd schedule. Couldn't finish my campaign because of morning sickness in the first trimester. Then had to cancel last night because of contractions. But we're viewing this as a long term investment, because in a few years, we'll have another player at the table!


plzPMme_ur_cute_tits

Confounding factors. We'll never be able to determine the true cause 😞


Semicolon_Cancer

Found the researcher. Or grad student reading journals.


FenrirIII

Why do internet assholes insist on cropping out the creator's information? Not saying OP did it, but give props where it's due: u/mrweiner


RobotHouuuse

Why bother linking to his Reddit username, may as well just say https://smbc-comics.com


Hankhoff

To be fair it's missing the whole last panel (and the last panel misses the creators information in the older comics) link from official website https://www.smbc-comics.com/comics/20061214.gif


Ulgeguug

This


Noone_Is_Me

That


pitmeng01

That’s Bullshit. You could also have bought them a Rush album 😂


Extension_Stock6735

Why not both? Listen to rush while playing dnd.


pitmeng01

Oh, I did both. That’s why they made a movie after me: Forty Year Old Virgin.


Extension_Stock6735

Lol


dudius7

I thought Rush was central to *I Love You Man*, not *40 Year Old Virgin*?


GuiltyStimPak

Rush *is* variety!


dahrug

They wanted a spell for youth, not for a lifetime


SunngodJaxon

I have personally done that


ChiefCasual

I thought those two things generally went hand in hand.


2017hayden

Now wait just a minute here I love rush and I’ve……… no actually you may have a point.


okokokokok11111

Me too, I was kept safe through my adolescence by the power of Rush!


TeoSorin

I don't get the joke. What's wrong with Rush? '-'


pitmeng01

I love Rush, but back in the height of their popularity it was a standard joke that you would never find a girl at a Rush Concert


Mortimer_and_Rabbit

Was it a joke or an observation? Lol just kidding.


okokokokok11111

This is true - sadly I never got around to attending any of their concerts, despite listening to them since my preteens. Just bought one of their albums today since my previous copy bit the dust.


ChiefCasual

Rush was sort of the Homestuck of it's era. Nothing wrong with it at all, but the hardcore fans can be a bit much and created a stigma around it


Saveron

My first character was named By-Tor.


pitmeng01

Please tell me he was a ranger with a white dog companion


Saveron

Human fighter. It was AD&D and never could roll good enough for those fancy classes.


Camman227a

You’re just gonna call me out specially, huh?


pitmeng01

🤣 it’s a big enough boat for us all to sink in


Elmo_The_Eskimo

Weezer works well too I've heard


MagnusKraken

HEY! (Good Joke, Man)


keltsbeard

I'm getting some SLCPunk feeling from that... https://youtu.be/z8pO8r34RW4


oneeyedwarf

Great movie! Matthew Lillard is a great character actor.


Thndrstrykr

I listen to Rush *and* play D&D and get mad p***y y'all tripping


pitmeng01

It is a joke….


Thndrstrykr

Oh I know. I sometimes enjoy over-sharing though


pitmeng01

There was always one guy at the table that got laid. The rest of the table lived vicariously through them 😂 so please, overshare away so the rest of the table can envy


nikkitgirl

Same, mind you the mad pussy I get is my own so there’s that. Also chicks dig nerdy chicks, they just generally ask I listen to something other than rush while they’re there lol


nikkitgirl

I would be insulted and stand up for myself and all the people that can get plenty of women to date us while listening to rush and playing d&d, but then I remembered we all wind up sterile pretty quickly so I guess it does work


Illustrious-Ad-375

[Getting this done to you would probably prevent most pregnancies tbh.](https://www.smbc-comics.com/comic/2006-12-14)


ChiefOfTheWolfpack

“That’s 14 bludgeoning damage and 431 psychic damage” “Wait, but it’s halved, I got a 19 on my con save” **That was halved.**


KwikSadik

Prestige class unlocked: Eunuch Warlock


Creepernom

what


Asmo___deus

Eh. It was actually funnier without the last panel.


ChiefOfTheWolfpack

The last panel was more of an anti-joke. Found both funny but that’s because I also am a sucker for anti-jokes.


Mordepool

I met my wife at a D&D game, jokes on you.


otherguy2814

I wanna say D&D did'nt stop Joe Manganiello from getting laid.


Liniis

No form of birth control is 100% effective


2017hayden

And you damn sure know it didn’t stop Vin Diesel or Terry Crews.


LookitsToby

Nah I think Vin Diesels personality was responsible for that


Papaofmonsters

The dude has 3 kids...


Sugar_buddy

They're secretly adopted?


TeapotHoe

i lost my virginity to someone i played dnd with


Liniis

Are you sure you weren't accidentally playing Pathfinder?


TeapotHoe

you sly dog, you


zealres

Same. The dm in fact.


abasedman

hope he gave you inspiration.


zealres

She did for a few year


TeapotHoe

in what sense were they the dungeon master?


zealres

You know the answer to that


AliceJoestar

can confirm, i play D&D with my girlfriend and two trans girls can't get each other pregnant


SeaBrightStorm

Doesn't stop my gf and I from trying.


DemocraticSpider

Jokes on you, D&D made him feel comfortable exploring himself and it helped him realize that he’s gay and that’s why it’s 100% effective. That’s how it worked for me, anyways


Raminus_polius

I’m becoming increasingly concerned that people who share all of my DIFFERENT hobbies continue to joke about being virgins.


MortalTwit

They're all wrong. They were wrong in the 80's when I was a nerd getting laid all the time. They are even more wrong now.


Raminus_polius

Cause I was thinking “why don’t the nerds just bone each other?”


alidmar

They do. It is just still common to act like women are never nerds. Or that gay people aren't nerds, etc, etc.


Raminus_polius

Who tf thinks queer folk don’t like nerd culture? I’ve always thought of the “bards fuck dragons” thing as a front for furries to recruit people, a group whose majority consists of those in the lgbtq community. Heck, my best friends are bisexual nerds!


Belteshazzar98

To be fair gay nerds can't get pregnant from having sex with each other.


Raminus_polius

I don’t think that was in question…


GodzillaReverso

Yeah but it's way more common to hear something like "she got pregnant and she's only 16" than "2 people had sex and are perfectly fine" because the first one is more terrible than the second one and people normally just comment on this kind of thing


Raminus_polius

What you aren’t understanding is that the original post led the beginning of a conversation unrelated to it. We aren’t talking about the meme anymore…


GodzillaReverso

Oh ok, sorry my bad


nikkitgirl

D&D prevents d*ke drama is something you’ll never hear not only because straight people don’t realize how intense it gets but also because D&D absolutely starts it. You, your girlfriend, your ex girlfriend, her girlfriend, and a single chick that’s at least dated one person at this table but is looking kinda cute, all hanging out in a highly social game over a few beers every week.


nikkitgirl

Or that nerds can’t be charismatic as hell. Heck I’m all three.


MortalTwit

We did. They still do. But apparently if there's not a cheerleader of football player involved it doesn't count?


penywinkle

From my experience nerds may bone eachother, but they are more educated about the risks of pregnancies, DST, etc... They also tend to want to have some time to play with friends, and kids would get in the way of that. So nerds are less likely than jocks to get pregnant.


Empoleon_Master

\*Laughs in gay


Dmitri_ravenoff

Jokes on y'all. I got way more play as a teen than I do as a married adult. Been playing D&D since I was 10.


Malashae

D&D eventually lead to World of Darkness which has resulted in an inordinate amount of extremely subversive sex that continues to occur to this very day…


Deaconhux

... I'm guessing Ventrue main.


Malashae

Lasombra Antitribu, actually.


Swarbie8D

I mean, I’m gonna get married explicitly *because* I started playing D&D. These days D&D is *hot*.


Pyrplefire

I met my wife at a D&D table. 2 years later we have a 1.5 year old son. Safe to say D&D doesn't prevent pregnancy anymore 😅


Belteshazzar98

Might want to check the math on that. Met 2 years ago, have a 1.5 year old after a 0.75 year pregnancy, hmm. I know it's just rounding, but those numbers sounded funny when rounded that way.


Pyrplefire

Haha fair. Closer to meeting 2.25 years ago, kiddo is 1 year and 5 months old


-Finity-

Kinda ironic.....cause DND was how I met my boyfriend... Welp, we got DND so there is no need to worry about pregnancy XD


flightguy07

Of course, in the bext two panels of this SMBC strip, it is revealed the father crushed the sons cock inside the handbook


TechieTheFox

I befriended more women than ever after I started playing D&D. I mean, I became one too, but that's besides the point.


youngcoyote14

Continue.


AdjutantStormy

That was the summary.


Benzaitennyo

I met my fiancee through D&D, whose parents also met through a gaming group. People just leave high school thinking this and never grow up, despite aging


Bradenoid

D&D players fuck


CompleteJinx

Not this one B)


chilipeppersamurai

lmao they say that but nerd girls are usually the biggest freaks 😂


OccamsBroadsword

Wow, a joke about nerds being virgins! Perhaps if you played D&D, you might develop the kind of creativity needed to come up with some new material. ...Is what I would say if I felt it were actually an insult.


Orthanx

You had me at first half, I'm not gonna lie XD


Public-Bluebird6797

19, married, play dnd with my husband, currently 7 weeks pregnant


stelei

Congrats!!! Hope everything goes well and you have a happy healthy little one! Signed, 40 weeks pregnant, playing D&D with husband and friends monthly.


OmegaCenturion1

Top tier Boomer humor.


Vegetable_Variety_11

Thank god I was born in 1998.


bonktogodicejail

I mean I once saw someone claim dnd dice will give you cervical cancer, so who knows


mrbush91

Probably can if you leave them in the cervix


AuAndre

Roll con ;)


Important-Space-4850

good, now they dont have to worry about having kids, that would interfere with dnd


astraphage

grindset


warmcoppertaste

These comments are pretty much as expected


MakiNiko

I teach my first girlfriend to play rpg, we played "orpheus"... But well she did not get pregnant so its work I think


longbrodmann

It's kinda good that this comic makes the precaution on boys not girls.


Desos001

Yeah I call bullshit on this comic as I got my first blowjob after a game of D&D.


Mythosaurus

*Starts playing with the the nerdy girls at school, RP's as a bard, and knocks one up IRL*


TypicalCricket

Nah, D&D is cool now. A more accurate joke would be MTG or Warhammer.


Lake_Business

Or for any of the three, using it so your kids won't do drugs. They'll be too broke to buy any.


Summersong2262

The red button comic is even better. Girl: Want to have sex? Boy: "Sorry, when I was 15 my father crushed my genitals with a Dungeons and Dragons book."


Wing_Natural

Jokes on you friend. Geeks are freaky by trade..


Hankhoff

I think you missed the part where he [hits his son in the crotch with said manual ](https://www.smbc-comics.com/comics/20061214.gif) Also it's smbc-comics.com for artist reference


Spaceman1stClass

I think in the original comic the dad ends up smashing his genitals with the player handbook.


Jimmy_Schraube

LoL. Idiots. Men can't get pregnant anyway. Oh wait that not pc.


Amrevoe

Ngl multiple people in my group are married or are in relationships


MortalTwit

I had tons of sex as a teenager who played DnD all the time. And no, my girlfriend didn't play. This was in the 80's when nerd stuff had a MUCH bigger stigma attached to it than now.


After-Ad2018

Can confirm. Played DnD with my girlfriend (now ex) and I wanted to murder her afterwards. No hanky panky going on, only homicide.


MattBurr86

Its only about 60% effectve nowadays


KilledByAd4

I introduced one of my friends to D&D today He was laughing even as he accepted he was stuck with his virginity


Jack__Napier

I have 5 kids.... about that. Yes, I do play a bard.


Orthanx

You know, the fact that this joke, has now become more Ironic over the years is staggering. Like I don't think anyone was expecting D&D to be mainstream, and the amount of marriages and kids and relationships coming out of it now is just crazy. Back in the day you'd get fucking swirlies and shit for D&D. I guess the nerds did in fact win, though like my brother a solid portion of jocks were nerds. The girls back then thought the parties we going beer and sex. It was lan parties and D&D, though they were socker players.... who beat up the football team over who got the field.


MacDerfus

Ok look someone was looking for a friend with benefits who could also join her DnD campaign on a dating app once, and she was a real human. Alas the pandemic hit full swing and we ended up never making any plans to meet up.


CumDevourer68420

You should’ve just given him Fallout (Source: Am Fallout player)


FalsePankake

Ironically my first time was with a friend from my party


adoof-hipler

I mean I heard in another post the dnd and BDSM participant Ven diagram is a circle so


Covelion

He could have just listened to Radiohead


SqualyCactus

I lost all my friends as soon as I bought a kit. Never got to play, because no one wanted anything to do with me. Another depressing waste of time.


JEverok

I... I don't think he would've gotten pregnant in the first place...


loser-geek-whatever

Instructions unclear, my partner is the one who introduced me to dnd


haiden-artemisia

All fun and games until they met someone who's also into that way too much(it's me. I'm someone)


LoliGrail

OK but what's the story in the title


TheGrimGriefer3

In what world can guys get pregnant and how can I go there


The-Sidequester

My first video call with my now-wife was teaching her how to play D&D.


CapSierra

*laughs in seducing a player* She has since taken on the DM screen so I can genuinely joke about seducing the DM.


Cladizzle

I always thought that was league players...
