Savage Lovecast: Episode 105

Posted by Mercury at 10:57 AM

1022SL.jpg

This week on Savage Lovecast, host Dan Savage tackles these dilemmas:

What’s a good, giving, and game gal to do when her anal-loving hubby’s dick is too thick? A formerly single lady now finds herself feeling clingy and wracked with abandonment issues. A bisexual man just came out to his boyfriend and faces a world of trouble. A woman dating an engaged, bisexual, cross-dressing father needs a little sorting out. A 17-year-old wonders (among other mind-boggling things) if she can get pregnant during her period.

And more. There’s always more.

Are you a couple that decided to have children? Give us a call at 206-201-2720, and let us know what the kid has done to your relationship.

1008SL.jpg

In the weepiest call ever, a woman breaks up with her boyfriend rather than let him leave his children for her. But he also sounds like a creep.

What is the ethically correct thing to do when your friend with benefits falls in love with you?

When a man refers to his friends as “buddies,” does that make him gay?
