Three male fencers (one of each discipline) participated in a group wedding to save money, but they all had different approaches once they retired to their respective honeymoon suites.
The foilist turned on two lights (one of them red, one of them white) for the mood and slowly aproached his wife in bed, and accelerated at the last moment.
The saber fencer only left on a red light, threw his wife down on the bed and jumped on top screaming.
The epeeist left the lights off, donned his protective gear, waited for his wife to initiate contact, and at the last second touched her first.
Then, he wondered why the light didn't come on and demanded a third party check his equipment.
