    I told him that I see his point but I genuinely would have had hurt feelings because I would have felt demeaned and disrespected and I can't help that I have those feelings whether I like them or not.
    He's being weird making a joke like that to his dad, but I just find it baffling when people get upset about a hypothetical.

    I have a friend who will happily make sexual jokes to his parents, but the parents are cool with it. Maybe the dad was annoyed because it was around you? Like he doesn't want to appear immature to his son's girlfriend.
    Quite possibly. I'd never make a joke like the one in the OP to my mother, but generally she'll put up with a bit of banter. When we have a guest her tolerance goes way down, for example to swearing.

    Theres a time and a place and a family dinner is NOT appropriate at all, id be horrified if my boyfriend acted like that in front of any sort of family.
    Looks like he's just acting up, trying to come across as a "lad" but why he's trying to impress his parents like that I haven't a clue 😂
