Coming Soon To Your TV: Couples Having Sex In A Box

Leave it to the Brits to come up with the most out-of-the-box (well, actually, in-the-box) concept for a reality TV show. And leave it to the Americans to steal the idea. WE  has announced that it will produce its own version of the British show, “Sex Box.” It’s just what it sounds like. Couples who are having relationship issues go inside a soundproof box, have sex and discuss it immediately after with a panel of sexperts (including the great Dan Savage). Keep reading »

“It’s really straight guys who get the bum rap. The way straight people have redefined marriage, and the way they define sexuality, it’s really unrealistic about male sexuality … And reading letters from straight guys made me hugely sympathetic to straight guys. And I was already sympathetic to straight women, because men are pigs and I sleep with men so know what that’s like. I arrived sympathetic to straight women—I became sympathetic to straight men, reading these bat-shit letters from straight guys who were being terrorized and being driven crazy, because sex is scarce if you’re a straight guy.”

– Dan Savage on being a gay man giving sex advice to straight men. You can read some more really interesting excerpts from Dan Savage: The First Gay Celebrity, an e-book by Mark Oppenheimer here. I never really thought about sex being scarce for straight guys. I was too busy thinking about how sex was scarce for me. But I suppose that has been, for the most part, by choice.[The Atlantic]

Sex columnist Dan Savage has made his career on advising lonely masturbators on the three Gs of not-terrible partner sex: “good, giving, and game.” Be good at what you do, be giving about doing it, and be game to try something new. GGG was always just Savage’s own personal, common sense advice. But now a new study published in a Journal of Sex Research has found that being game in the sack truly makes for more satisfied relationships. Keep reading »

Dan Savage & Brian Brown Debate LGBT Issues And Gay Marriage

Well, it finally happened. Months in the making, Dan Savage and Brian Brown battled it out in “The Dinner Table Debate,” discussing LGBT issues and Christianity and moderated by Mark Oppenheimer.

First, some background. In April, Savage, a sex columnist and originator of “It Gets Better,” an anti-bullying campaign, gave a speech in April to 3,000 high school students, during which some of his comments led to 24 high schoolers walking out. During his speech, Savage said that the origin of much anti-gay bullying comes from the Bible. Keep reading »

What do you do if you’re an advice columnist who gets a letter from a young woman with questions about her crush on the twins sisters who make up the band Tegan & Sara? If you’re Dan Savage, you go right to the source and ask Tegan to answer the question for you. A woman wrote to the sex advice columnist saying:

I’ve been confused about my sexuality for two years. I am a 22-year-old female. I liked guys when I was in school, but then, in perhaps the most stereotypical of fashions, I developed a HUGE crush on Tegan and Sara when I was nearly 20…

Does that make me gay, she wondered?

Have you been watching “Savage U” on MTV? You should be! Frankly, I think the show should be required viewing for teens and college students, as Dan both hilariously and empathetically delivers some of the best and most straightforward sex and dating advice ever seen on TV or elsewhere. The first time I heard Dan (we’re on a first name basis), on his “Savage Love” podcast, talk about the importance of being “GGG” (“Good, Giving and Game”) in a relationship, my mind was kind of blown. So simple, but it encapsulates the exact dynamic I want to share with a partner. So it’s not come as any surprise to me that the advice he’s given on “Savage U” — airing Tuesdays at midnight on MTV — is just as straightforward and spot-on. Here are five bits of advice I especially loved. [MTV] Keep reading »

Hot Links: Dan Savage Labeled A “Bully” & Experts Conclude The Tanning Mom Is, Duh, Tanorexic

  • My BFF Dan Savage has been labeled a “bully” because he went on a rant about ignoring the “bullshit in the Bible about gay people,” and while he apologizes for calling a person who walked out of this speech “a pansy ass,” he stands by his other comments. [Newser]
  • Star says that Angelina Jolie discovered Brad Pitt’s “secret stash” of love letters from another woman, but the most shocking thing about this tabloid story is that they’re not claiming the other woman is Jennifer Aniston. [Celeb Dirty Laundry]
  • I love the message behind Christy Turlington’s “No Mother’s Day” campaign, which aims to raise awareness about the fact that a woman dies every 90 seconds from pregnancy and childbirth complications. [Celebrity Baby Scoop] Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: Dan Savage Talks About “Savage U,” And The Prevalence Of Birth Control Use And Slut-Shaming On College Campuses

Tonight at 11 p.m. is the premiere of MTV’s “Savage U,” the half-hour series in which Dan Savage, sex advice columnist and founder of the It Gets Better Project, travels to 12 colleges and universities across the country and talks to young folks about sex and relationships. Given his experience — he’s been doling out straight-forward advice for 20 years — and hilariously honest approach, “Savage U” is sure to have a refreshing, entertaining, and most of all important impact on the way mainstream television addresses sex and dating. I was lucky enough to talk to Dan about the show, what most surprised him about the sex lives of college students, and whether he thinks he’ll still be dishing it out in another 20 years. Check out our Q&A after the jump! Keep reading »

I love Dan Savage for a number of reasons. Among them, the “It Gets Better” campaign and the dumb but true advice that “every relationship fails until the one that doesn’t.” Aside from that, I love Dan because he offers smart, non-judgmental advice about sex and relationships, but will totally tell his readers if they’re doing something stupid (see also: DTMFA). So I’m really excited to see Dan in action — so to speak — on the new MTV show “Savage U.” “Savage U” follows Dan and producer Lauren Hutchins0n as they travel around college campuses answering embarrassing and need-to-know questions. You might not be in college, but chances are, you still want to know if a guy can tell if you’re faking an orgasm, right? (Debuts April 3 at 11 p.m. EST.)  [MTV]
