Chapter 9: Trayvon — Intercourse, like, and Like in Prison2

Exactly just What had been the possibilities things could wind up violently with me, of course, getting the shitty end between us? Might Trayvon force himself on me personally in a way that I happened to be unwilling to simply accept but not able to stop?! They certainly were perhaps perhaps not questions that are idle. We thought long and difficult about it, however in the final end i decided that no, he’dn’t do this. According to just what, you ask? Good question — we don’t understand

Another consideration ended up being, that which was Trayvon getting away from this relationship? Demonstrably, he’d get yourself a intercourse partner as well as minimum some usage of my canteen account. I knew he previously simply no cash, in which he knew that I experienced at the very least some funds. Possibly he had been really drawn to me personally in which he had been a mooch — an opportunity was represented by me to meet both requirements! Had been here such a thing undoubtedly incorrect with that? As of this very very very early phase we told myself that so long as he didn’t get too greedy I became fine to allow him have soup or perhaps a honey bun as he desired one thing. Why shouldn’t I reward him for their relationship? All things considered, we stood to have one thing using this too — unlike my situation at Swift Annex I’d have prison bad-ass on my part in the event i obtained threatened or harassed.

Did Trayvon have HIV or other STD? Needless to say he said no and said he previously to obtain tested occasionally and blah blah blah. I did son’t press the presssing problem or insist upon seeing the test outcomes. Rather We asked myself — keep in mind, this person had been assigned to kitchen responsibility — Would my state’s DOC designate some guy with HIV compared to that type or sorts of job? I’d to trust the solution was no, no chance. Other inmates later on laughed within my self- self- confidence in DOC! Additionally, he wasn’t using any meds — either K.O.P. (“keep on person”) or dose that is single. Therefore we judged him become healthier.

Ended up being I the sole guy he had been striking on or are there other people — either immediately within my dorm or perhaps in your kitchen where he worked sixdays per week? Did we worry about that? A prison dorm is approximately the smallest amount of place that is private can are now living in, and so I could see the majority of Trayvon’s interactions with other people. He previously other buddies, black colored & white. Achieved it appear to be he had been striking on some of those dudes? Solution — no. As to whether we cared, we must’ve cared or I would personallyn’t have already been spending a great deal attention. But we told myself I cared perhaps perhaps not away from jealousy but because I happened to be nevertheless racking your brains on their genuine motives and concerned about getting an STD.

I inquired myself: If i really do this does which make me personally unfaithful to my ex-wife with who We hoped to get together again once I got away? Exactly just exactly What would which means that? We had been divorced!

Could achieving this somehow turn me personally homosexual after a very long time to be right — at minimum since it pertains to grownups? I did son’t understand yet because I’dn’t had this experience yet. But we thought — no. I happened to be building an exception that is special this “friend with benefits, ” an exception that will end once we finished. We thought, “Trayvon is really an unique situation. How many other young black colored dudes may be thinking about a mature white guy? ” To date, i did son’t feel any gayer. I became simply messing around and having some disgusting fun. It had been a jail thing.

Before embracing the possibility advantages Trayvon had to provide being a “friend with benefits” i want to say one final instead serious issue that I didn’t consider in front of time — although in hindsight i truly needs to have! Which was, assume we had been learned? Assume rumors about us started to travel round the dorm simply because I became investing considerable time hanging out Trayvon’s bunk and we’re smiling at each and every other plenty? Just just What would we do, if such a thing, to squelch such rumors?
