in college and I live with my best friend. He and I tell each
other almost everything . . . except he doesn’t know that
I’m bi. What complicates things further is that I am completely
in love with him. He’s straight and oblivious. Everyone says
that you can’t “convert” someone, but . . . I’m wondering
if he has bi-curious leanings that he isn’t telling me about.
Is there some way I can get him to open up to me without necessarily
exposing myself? My worst fear is that I tell him the truth
and he ends our friendship and moves out.
Not to Fall
me see if I follow you, TNTF: You want to know if there’s
some way to get your roommate—a boy you have a crush on—to
tell you he’s bisexual and attracted to you without “exposing”
yourself to him, i.e. without telling him that you’re
bi. Sorry, chickenshit, there’s really no way to do that.
If you want your roommate to “open up” to you (or open up
his ass to you), you’re going to have to open up to him and,
yes, run the risk of destroying your friendship and losing
your roommate. But you know what? If you’re in love with this
guy then you should be anxious to tell everything and risk
everything. It will be sad, of course, if your roommate reacts
badly to your confession and walks out of your life forever
. . . but what will you have really lost? Only the friendship
of a guy that you don’t really want to have as your friend.
You want to be his boyfriend. If he doesn’t want to be your
boyfriend, TNTF, the sooner he’s out of your life the sooner
you’ll get over him.
I am an avid reader of your column
in Edmonton, Alberta. I am also a submissive cross-dresser
with a domestication fetish. My wife participates in this
with me. I am interested in expanding my limits by dressing
up and serving a gay couple as their sissymaid. I have run
ads on the internet without any luck. Is the idea of having
a sissymaid something the average gay couple finds repulsive?
If this is something a gay couple might be interested in,
how would I go about finding them? Should I go to a local
gay bar? If I should, do I go alone and dressed as a dude?
Or do I take my wife and go dressed as a sissymaid?
cross-dressing, domestication, forced feminization, and “sissymaids”
are fetishes that almost exclusively appeal to kinky straight
males, STM, it doesn’t matter if you go to Edmonton’s gay
bars dressed like a dude or a sissymaid or the Queen of Canada:
You’re going to be going home alone. Most gay men into domination
are looking for slave “boys” (age 18 or older), not middle-aged,
married sissymaids. You’ll have to find some other way to
expand your limits, STM.
I was wondering if there is any advice
you can give for wearing wedding bands. My boyfriend and I
are bisexual, masculine, and not ready to publicly display
our sexual orientation. A few months ago we decided to bind
our commitment to one another by purchasing a set of wedding
bands. The rings are a plain white gold and look a lot like
those sterling silver rings that are quite popular right now.
We both normally wear our rings on the right hand, on the
finger next to the pinky. Recently my boyfriend was asked
about his ring. This person told him that wearing the ring
on that particular finger meant you were married to another
man. Is this true? Any information that you could give us
would really be appreciated.
not sure which finger men-who-are- married-to-men are supposed
to wear their rings on, BBG, nor do I much care. But I do
know this: A male couple that isn’t ready to “publicly display
[their] sexual orientation” has no business wearing wedding
bands. A couple wears wedding bands in order to make a distinctly
public statement about their love and commitment. If you guys
aren’t ready to make your relationship public, BBG, then you’re
not ready for wedding rings. If you want to wear “secret”
rings that no one can see or ask you about, then you should
After some searching, I found the
O’Reilly Factor archive link to your interview, and
the second half of the interview is erased! Right after the
drug debate ends, the clip changes to three minutes of test
pattern! It’s like the Nixon Watergate tapes! It seems that
Mr. O’Reilly is more than a little worried about turning on
his radio to hear “Bill O’Reilly Wants to Go to a Gay Bathhouse”
(Neptunes Remix). The gauntlet has been thrown down, Mr. Savage.
It is your duty to find those missing three minutes, and release
them surreptitiously onto the internet for all to see. I beg
of you, as a dedicated reader, find that tape!
Fan in the Heartland
Bill O’Reilly doesn’t want people to think he wants to go
to a gay bathhouse or the folks at FOXNews don’t want DJs
all over the world sampling O’Reilly and making “I Want To
Go To a Gay Bathhouse!” a dance sensation this winter in Ibiza.
Well, it’s too late: I know of three or four DJs who are already
hard at work on Bill O’Reilly’s breakthrough dance track.
Are you fucking crazy?! An 18-year-old
with a chance to experience the greatest sex fantasy of all
time—sex with his (presumably hot) teacher—asks for your advice
and all you tell him is that his teacher might get
in trouble? Dan! You should have told Virgin Slave in Michigan
to be careful or to wait until after graduation. Or you could
have told him how to keep the affair secret—or, fuck, you
could have told him to go for it and let his teacher deal
with the consequences if the affair goes public! But what
did you tell him, Dan? You told him to JUST SAY NO! What’s
with the conservative response? Did Bill O’Reilly rub off
on you or something?
Rubbing off on me. Sigh. A boy can dream.
Okay, DAD, you’re right: My advice to VSIM was uncharacteristically
conservative . . . so . . . because I’m man enough to admit
when I’m wrong . . . I’m going to take it back. If you’re
out there, VSIM, please disregard the advice I gave you last
week. If your teacher will have you (enslave you?), then I
say go for it. (DAD here wants to live vicariously through
you, you see, and for that reason alone you should be willing
to risk your teacher’s career.) And since the idea of following
orders turns you on so much, VSIM, make sure your teacher
orders you to keep your mouth shut.
