If he had simply said "Help me put this condom on and we'll make love", it'd be a much more understandable mistake, since it could be interpreted either as a set or as an & operation, neither of which order matters for ;P

I completely missed this the first time around; apparently my interest was limited to the red button image. Sorry about that.

Anyway, the mathematician quite clearly asks if the order can be reversed. The whole point is that she is questioning the relevance of his use of 'then', presumably to have more enjoyable sex. Then, when
