Dan Savage Feels For You, Straight Guys

"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…

This Couple’s Sex Life Is WAY Hotter Than Yours

I was scrolling through some questions on Dan Savage's Savage Love advice column and came across this one: "You probably get this question every day.

Soapbox: Why I Must Consider Non-Monogamy

The other day, I was talking to one of my lesbian friends about the difference between gay and straight relationships. "Being a straight woman, who may want to get married someday, means I have to entertain the notion of having a nonmonogamous marriage," I argued. "Why?" she challenged me. (I get this reaction a lot.

Dan Savage’s First Visit To A Gay Bar Was Like An Airplane Taking Off

"[The first gay bar I went to] was called the Bushes … My first 'real' boyfriend took me. I was too young to be in a bar—and too naive to be in a gay bar—but bars didn't card people then like they do now. I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only 17-year-old boy in that…

Is There A Sex Toy Double Standard?

I have ... hold on, let me count ... five vibrators. While I don't flaunt them -- i.e., they're not laying out on my bedside table for guests to ogle -- I don't pretend not to have them. I am an empowered woman! I masturbate! I am the master of my own orgasm! Roar! Or…

It Gets Better, The Book

When Dan Savage posted the first "It Gets Better" video to YouTube, following the suicides of multiple LBGT teens who faced bullying in school, he likely didn't expect the overwhelming culture phenomena it became.

What Does It Mean For A Relationship To “Work”?

My Tuesday evening ritual consists of the following: an hour and a half of yoga and meditation, followed by a hot bubble bath, in which I either drink a glass of wine or eat a Haagen-Daz Coffee Crunch ice cream bar, while wearing a mud mask and lisening to Dan Savage's Savage Love podcast. I…
