@160: Is this real or are you a troll? For one thing, if a woman tried this bullshit, turning down a bunch of great guys and then turning 30 and not finding a date, then getting depressed, people would tell her that she aged out of the dating game and that she's to blame for failing to manage her own mental illness. But since you're a man, you get coddled and told you deserve whatever the fuck you want. Fuck you, fuck your sexism, and fuck this misogynistic society.

@10: Feminism does not exist so that you can dictate what women do. If you don't think that the gal should sleep with the guy just say so. Don't drag a movement in which YOU DO NOT BELIEVE into it.

"Delaney is now the official spokesperson for all people everywhere who struggle with depression."

Oh thanks, Dan, for telling us that a white, straight, affluent man is the spokesperson for an illness that predominantly affects women and the poor.

Fuck Rob Delaney and fuck his stupid advice. The writer was looking for a fucking pat on the back and he sure got one, didn't he?

@83: Oh boy I love helping people with reading comprehension. (You don't get to decide that women don't deserve to be satisfied with their sex lives and men do, by the way.)

I've been with my husband for almost 20 years. About six years ago he agreed to open up our marriage. After a couple of years he slammed the door shut again after I broke a rule. For the past four years he has been punishing me and has not been able to let it go.

Timeline: ~14 years married, monogamous. The couple decided together to open their marriage. Two years of an open marriage, followed by the husband reneging on his agreement. The wife plays along for four years, all the while being punished for breaking a rule in their newly monogamous relationship.

Oh, and by the way, it's legal to dissolve a marriage. Even for a woman! I know, it's so hard to comprehend that women want to end their marriages and are legally allowed to do so even though we all know that men should get to be sexually satisfied and be vindictive dicks (and rape their spouses because how can it be rape if it's within a marriage?! lolololol) Not to mention all the concern over "did the husband get to have a girlfriend?!?!"

Hey remember when that lady married a guy knowing he wanted an open relationship and she said she'd give it a shot but then she wrote to Dan saying she can't handle it and he blasted her for deceiving the man into marrying her thinking he'd be satisfied with his sex life and if he divorces her and people found out why, he'd be the bad guy when it's actually her that's the jerk?

The comments on that article all congratulate Dan for putting that deceitful woman in her place. Interesting that when it's the woman who wanted an open relationship and not the man, it's because she's a cheating harlot who doesn't care about her children.

When I read the second postscript for the second letter I hear George Takei saying "Oh my!" Can you imagine how awkward it would be if they weren't the same toys or lube?

Hey if I had some contrived reason to ask Mr. Savage for advice, I'd jump at it. Too bad most of my problems are self-inflicted, unsolvable, or obvious.

@16: I have a similar experience with the guys I've dated. I don't like receiving enough to demand it, but I hate when a guy I'm seeing feels entitled to a blow job but won't return the favor when I ask.

Actually the phrase "making it" stood out to me more than the chimp part. Dan Savage has ruined my brain.

@3: Negotiating, or less charitably, haggling the cost of a sex worker that you haven't been with isn't the same thing as giving a regular customer a break in pricing. Generally, when I see someone negotiating a price, it's for an object, not a service. Tutors, babysitters, hair stylists, and other people who are professionals at what they do generally have a set price that a customer decides whether or not they want to take. Your experience differs, but that's my take.

@14: Yikes.
