Response to @hampton_202: "Not buying a car without a test drive. Sorry."
"I'm sorry. I know that you're agreeing with my point, and I appreciate the support, but I am very much not a fan of this analogy because it reduces a sexual partner to an object to be tried out for potential purchase. I much prefer to think of entering a doubles tennis tournament, where I want to ensure before the event starts that I get matched with a partner whose skill and technique complements and at least equals if not exceeds my own."
