Some advice needed (girl question)

So the girl I have been seening for a month or so now has slept with me, which is my first time, and after the act, we just lay there on the bed, looking at the posters on my ceiling (Yes my roof/Ceiling has those cloth posters imported from Japan) when she asked me why didn't I have more guys shown or even some male figures.

Now most of my collection 90% is female and the 10% is male. However since my graduation and then my move to Canada, I haven't unpacked my things because it takes up to much space in my room to actually set everything up, so I do it in an yearly rotation. I rarely if ever have any posters with guys solely on it. I rather like who series than individual characters so thats why its mostly either the whole cast lineup of the girls or a mixture.

However this has gotten me confused. Does she actually want me to go out and buy more male figures? Mostly I don't buy them because most of thier poses are unappealing. I thought about it, but frankly I am lost. Should I explain this to her? How should I approch this?

I would like to be gentle as possible, because frankly I think she could be the one.

And yes, for those who know me, the previous H/A Thread girl is her.

    ...this is super, super minor. Like, incredibly minor. Point out that you are male, and it is nicer to look at females than males. Why would you go out and buy posters with guys on them just beacuse some girl asked you a question?

    I don't know, to please her I guess. She hasn't come out with it, but I think she has some Yoai tendendces. So I am guessing she wants to see some of that when she hangs out with me.

    I dunno .... I wouldn't point out to my GF (who I just slept wiht) that I like looking at manga chicks

    I'd just shrug it off and if she has to have a reason, just tell her that most of the manga art is in that style

    don't however go out and buy stuff just cause you think it'll please her

    If she really cares about gender representation in the posters in your room then I would be a little worried.

    Dude, I don't think she was serious, just being weird-girl-like. Ignore it.

    If not, and she brings it up again:
    "Look, they're just posters. I choose the ones I like, not based on gender preference. That's just how it turns out, because most female poses are better than male poses."




    ...Alternatively, plaster your ceilings with Lolicon, Shotacon, Furries, and Shitting Dicknipples, and pretend like nothing has changed.

    She's probably totally into yaoi. You'd better put up some posters to make her happy.

    ...But seriously, this sounds like a "what's so great about porn?" sort of question, to a lesser extent. I don't know if there's a good way to answer it, but she probably doesn't care that much. I mean, what would you think if she had posters of hunks in speedos plastered all over her room?

    Since this is your first relationship, here's some general advice. Just because your girlfriend says something doesn't mean there's an underlying meaning. Lots of times, people just say things because it's what's on their mind. And when they're comfortable with someone, that tends to happen more.

    Don't worry about any underlying tendencies or hidden meanings. She wants to know why you don't have more guys. You say "I don't like their poses most of the time... and I like girls."

    Don't be oblivious to serious comments, but you don't need to get worried over small statements like this. If she had some ulterior motive, it'll come up on its own eventually -- such as her asking you to buy her some stuff.

    Ohohoho, you make me smile.

    If you so desire this, then let love always guide you. Love always protects, trusts, hopes, endures.

    Ask her why she cares. If she hasn't figured out you like anime girls better than anime guys by now you had sex too soon.

    Doc's right. In all fairness if you've found a girl that you really really like and she seems to like you back, you should do everything you can to ensure that she knows this and how strong your feelings are towards her.

    It sounds like it was just an offhand comment.

    You should stop obsessing about it.

    Well, I just talked to her on the phone. When I asked about this, she laughed and said she asked those because she likes to see me flustered because I couldn't answer that. So I guess this is a moot point. Thanks for you help.
