@#27: Masturbation sleeve is right. I have had a hell of a lot of maintenance sex over the years and it does something screwy inside my head. Boredom and resentment towards the hetero male sex drive is a constantly festering blob within me.

A young woman DOES NOT have to give a man the benefit of the doubt for coming into her bedroom at night and staring at her while she sleeps. For fuck's sake.

I think that single girl was actually asking for advice on how to re-enter the dating world, not looking for permission to be alone forever. Being single is fantastic, I did it for 4 years. I was celebate too. But when the time came for me get back out there to get laid, it was really really hard!! I struggled to find the guts for ages until one night i just got really fucking drunk and went home with a stranger. Not pretty or romantic but it got the job done. It woke my confidence up to some extent. After that I farted around until I met a nice dude and fell in love. No big deal.

I really get the impression from the information given here that testing for herpies really doesn't work. It sounds like if you have it, you'll test positive. if you don't have it, you'll test positive. If you engaged in 'high risk' activity, then a positive test result actually means something. huh?
I wish they'd spent more time on the very awkward conversation that we are supposed to have with potential partners and the inevitable negative reaction they will have. That's the hardest thing about having it i bet.

To the lesbian dealing with the awkward ex situation: I experienced a similar thing, I'm straight but it was a very small and very social town. I had left it for two years to get space from my ex but eventually had to return and face him and his new relationship. It was sooo scary and hard at first, but then one night the new girlfriend had some drinks then introduced herself to me. By the end of the night we were hanging out together and in time we became friends from a distance. When the time came for her to think about leaving the relationship, she was able to gain perspective from my experience with him. So Dan is right, just be upfront with the awkwardness and use booze for bravery!

I've got scars on my arms from popping whiteheads wheni was a kid. i wish i hadn't done it, but it's not the worst thing in the world. I swear it's not a sign of some deeper psycological problem. Just a dumb habit that i still have. I don't think that kid needs to read too much into it.
But the scars last so it's a good reason to quit!!

Wow class Dan. Make the girl feel like a piece of shit why don't you? No one wants to hear that they sound gay, for God's sake.

After listeing to so many of these podcasts it's becoming pretty clear that low libido is NOT only a thing that happens to women. It actually seems 50/50.

Oh my God ladies, don't worry about having body hair. Dudes will SAY they hate it, but in my experience they open up to the idea soon after getting laid. I don't shave anything and I've never lost a guy from it yet. I find they become sort of fascinated. I don't warn them ahead of time either. Suck it up men, I have to put up with your hairy pits so eat it!
