They go out to a bar and he brags about banging a 53 year-old woman.
Regardless, Rino at least makes some fumbling gestures at women and they are not turned-on, but neither actively dissing him.
Once again, he flees to the balcony, where Marlin consoles him telling him drunkenly to not be depressed.
Rino gets turned on and decides to go with his best friend to a brothel to finally get laid.
When he goes into the dirty brothel, there are several fairly good-looking women there.
It isn’t his date, however, as a chubby blond calls him over. He calls her a disgusting lard ass and pours his beer in sheer beta defiance over his head.
She grabs his hand in an act of empathy, but he jerks away and leaves.
They take on one of the most beta pacts ever – she steps into celibacy, while he steps out. Rino walks into the restaurant and immediately approaches an attractive blond at the bar with no fear.
It shows much fear can impede a man, as the female wasn’t swooning but was at least entertaining his advances.
His relationship with Rino hits a climax at a house party Marlin throws, which is a mini-climax.
In the lead-up to this party, Rino tries working out.
He clearly has a crush on the cute blond at the checkout line – but has negative game and even trips when leaving the store. Rino makes and draws a series of cartoons in which his alter-ego – Captain Cock – either does things he won’t do in real life or is the scapegoat for the shame Rino feels about his sexual feelings and desires.
