Savage Love Episode 651
A bisexual man and his girlfriend want to try a threeway with another man. But he has never been with a man before and feels anxious. The girlfriend just feels turned on. He wishes she would suppress her desire and support him in this trying time. A woman's friend is beginning the process of coming out as a trans woman. But she wants to be help accountable. She asked the caller to send a coming out announcement to family and friends if the trans woman doesn't do it herself by a certain time. Is this a reasonable request? Should the caller shoulder this responsibility? Then! Dan chats with super-smart, forward thinking author, blogger, and internet rights activist Cory Doctorow about his book, group sex, the gig economy and period sex, among other things. Some of this interview is on the Micro and all of it is on the Magnum. Listen in. And speaking of group sex, how do you tell a lady you're swinging with to go a little more gently with the blow jobs.

oh my, I believe in theory and personal experience that full disclosure of any kind of past and ongoing issue cuz if it is a mental disorder it you know it's always an ongoing issue, is almost certainly necessary for a happy and healthy relationship. additionally, taking into account the prolonged euphoric state of our minds and the different mental state of someone at the beginning of the relationship and all of the good feelings that brings our lives, much of our instability and disorders are masked and hidden because of this new exciting, awesome thing that's in our lives but just like everything else is just temporary and eventually goes back to status quo. we got to be able to know our bodies well and become familiar with the moods we get into to identify and communicate when something does not feel right within us. doing this enables us to communicate that fact that this has nothing to do with anything around us or our partner at all but an internal tissue of something that happened to us in the past left unresolved and inevitably manifesting in ways that we don't understand or whatever you believe in that circumstance. do you think that might be essential for your partner to have the opportunity to handle the situation in a healthy way? also, I believe the one with the mental disorder has to be genuinely sympathetic and remorseful that this is happening and that we are not blaming them or ourselves but it's something we are dealing with and yeah we do feel bad about it and we communicate that, make plans for the future when it will happen again. start coming back after the fact in relating and explaining to your partner that they have nothing to do with this has shown to have monumental impacts on the partner's Outlook of the situation. this can then allows them to be sympathetic towards you since they are not feeling threatened by you and these situations and the sympathy is the base and foundation of the support that they're able and willing to give you. and be clear that they do not have to support it and they do not have to put up with it, they can set a boundary, a hard boundary on these instances and they should protect their boundaries and you can help them do that too by owning up to your actions saying I crossed your boundaries help them identify their boundaries. our disorder is never an excuse or means to justify any behavior and someone that is feeling genuinely remorseful and sympathetic to their partner's feeling will say sorry if they did something and that it is not ok to do that, period. it is my personal and snobby smelly opinion that if you are serious at all about having a healthy and growing relationship with somebody then you will be in dialogue about this type of ongoing issue and it will come up often and you'll talk about it often because that's what it is, that's our life.

Look up Brian Friedman, a dancer/choreographer on YouTube and everywhere else, for an awesome, confident bald-ish guy who inspires others everyday!

I thoroughly enjoy this podcast, Dan Savage and the guests on the show. I find Dan's unfiltered, blatant honesty and point of view to be brilliantly refreshing and at times, extremely eye opening. Thank you for providing this podcast for people around the world and for sharing your perspective with both myself and other interested listeners!

Pros: - same sort of entertaining questions and advice you'd expect if you're a fan of the column - Savage has radio experience, and is not painful to listen to, unlike the majority of novice podcasters Cons: - it's sometimes very difficult to understand the callers, as the sound quality of the calls can be very bad I've been a fan of his column for 10 years, and after listening to the first two episodes, I'd say this is a very promising podcast. I'll keep listening.

It's nice to see that Dan Savage is doing a podcast. Many years ago, he did a call-in radio program on KCMU (now KEXP) in Seattle called Savage Love Live. It was the funniest, experimental and informative hour of radio you could listen to late on a Sunday night. So, give him some time to find his feet in this format. At least you count on him to provide you with direct, honest, fair and insightful advice and information.

I've been reading Savage Love (the advice column) since...let's see, 1996. Ten years, wow. Anyway, in that time I've come to greatly admire Dan Savage's sexual advice. I've disagreed maybe a handful of times, but overall it has been frank, funny, and accurate, and served many people well. His language may be a bit shocking at first, but don't let that put you off-- it's just a way of approaching people's-- sometimes poignant, often bizarre-- dilemmas head-on with absolute honesty. The first podcast is a bit rocky (and in my opinion, too short), but I'm sure it will improve. You can call and leave questions for Dan to answer at 206-201-2720, and it's entirely anonymous if you want it to be.
