I need a quick opinion from an unbiased source. What’s the stance on hooking up with someone that used to hookup with your sister? Ew, it sounds gross to even say it out loud but my sister used to hook up with this kid when we were in high school and it was casual and never went anywhere. Well fast forward, we are both out of college and working so its been about 6-7 years. I recently saw him out at a party and gave him a ride home; since then we have been texting and making plans to hangout. I enjoy talking to him and would def hookup with him but is that crossing some weird sisterly line? Also, does it sound like he may have an agenda pursuing me? Just trying to figure out if its too taboo.

Dear Ultimate Eskimo Sister,
Brace yourself, cause there’s gonna be a lot of those jokes. It’s bizarre that you’re writing into a website advice column before you even ask the one person that matters: your fucking sister, duh! What does she think? If she not okay with it, don’t do it. If she doesn’t give a shit, I guess you can go ahead. Personally, I think it’s weird as hell, for the following reasons:
1. I’m close with my sister so even if he’s not her ex per se, I still feel like it goes against an unspoken code. That’s just like, the rules of feminism!
2. If you think you can ever bang this guy without imagining balls-deep in your sister…well, you’re more strong-willed than I am, I’ll give you that.
But again, if your sister genuinely doesn’t feel any type of way about it, and #3 isn’t a problem for you, then go for it, if that’s what makes you happy. 6 years is a long time so while I wouldn’t do it, it’s like, not the worst thing. I don’t think this guy has any type of “agenda” unless you’re twins and if that’s the case he probably has a fetish.
Enjoy the sloppy seconds,
