A young couple got married. On their honeymoon, they were very anxious to have sex because they were both virgins.

Because of their sexual inexperience, they were a bit uncomfortable discussing the subject, so they came up with the term, "doing the laundry" to use in place of "having sex". This made them more comfortable with the whole concept.

Well, the first night of their honeymoon was wonderful. They "did the laundry" five times that first night. In the middle of the night the new husband woke up, and he was ready to do the laundry again.

He gently shook his new wife and asked her, "Can we do the laundry again?" but she was very tired. She told him that she just couldn't do it again just yet. Maybe in the morning.

A few hours later the new wife awoke feeling very guilty. What he had asked for wasn't unreasonable, and decided she should go ahead and "do the laundry".

With that thought in mind, she gently shook him and said, "Honey, I'm sorry I denied you... we can do the laundry again if you want", and he replied, "That's OK... it was a small load. I did it by hand."
