A naive young girl from a small town was visiting friends in San Francisco. She phoned her mom to let her know how she was getting along.
"Things are rather strange here. I see men who hold hands, kiss and hug each other. They're called 'gays' or homosexuals. Even more surprising, there are women here who do the same things and they are referred to as 'lesbians'. You probably won't believe this, but some men here put their heads down on a woman's private parts and do things with their tongues."
"Good Lord," her mom said. "What do they call them?"
"Well, after I caught my breath I called one of them precious!"
