Exactly what Felicia just said.. I think Dan should have said so as well, because strangely people have all these crazy misunderstandings about lube. That it's an indicator of failure, that you only have to apply it once during a session, that you only use it when she's already feeling pain (THAT'S WAY TOO LATE!!! STOP HAVING SEX AT THAT POINT!). I cannot wrap my head around al off this.. So I repeat fullheartedly after Felicia: Lube is good! Spend some bucks on it as well, it's worth it. (Also: with silicone based lube you actually can have sex in the shower/bathtub/pool, ain't that nice?)

There's something that I've been wanting to share for quite some time now, and the subject of abortion is actually quite relevant to it. I've been a fan of Dan and his column (and the comments) for quite some time now. Although the personal questions about crazy things happening in the bedroom are nice, I find it even more intriguing to read about more 'politically relevant' questions. That is mostly because I'm Dutch. It is simply unbelieveable how different things are on the two sides of the ocean. Especially with things like abortion. For me it is so strange that you would have to discuss BC or abortion when you're dating someone, because almost everyone in the Netherlands is fully supportive of women's rights when it comes to their health and sex life - the extremely religious excepted of course.

Even though we are undoubtedly one of the world's most 'pro'-abortion countries, the funny thing is that we also have very, very little teenage pregnancies and abortions (in general, not just with teenagers). That is most propably due to our pragmatic approach of problems. For example, we dont have abstinence education. We have sex eduction that already starts at primary school. Our children do not only learn how to practice safe sex (we're proud to practice 'Double Dutch: the pill+condom) but we also learn girls to respect their bodies, to not give in to peer pressure and to not be ashamed of being a sexual being. BC pills are widely available, the government has their 'I do it safe or don't do it at all' campaign directed at teenagers, school doctors are not forbidden but rather encouraged to talk to pupils about (safe) sex, etc...

I could say so much more about all of these things, but I just wanted to share what an enormous joy it is to read Dan's columns (and the comments!) and in that way to get a very nice and informative look into the public debate that goes on at the other side of the ocean. I hope to be reading more of it for many many years.
