Savage Love


Do any of you read the blog "Savage Love"? If not, ch-ch-check it out by clicking on the title of this entry (magic! M the Wizard = 1)

For those of you who are unfamiliar with this sex / dating / love / relationship advice-giving blog, here's a brief synopsis. Dan Savage is an openly gay author who uses the column as a forum for his strong opinions that disregard conservative models of love, sex, and family. He generally encourages advice-seekers to pursue their fetishes, so long as activities are legal, consensual, safe, and respectful. The tone of the column is humorous, and Savage does not shy away from using profanity (yay!). The cornerstone of his sexual ethics is consent; he is thus strongly opposed to bestiality, child molestation, and rape. He speaks out against incest and social inequality, too. Though Savage encourages sexual experimentation, he does not encourage carelessness. He frequently uses his position to promote safer sex and awareness of AIDS.

Dude is awesome. His advice is almost always right on the money. I am one member of his massive cult following, and soon you too will be reading this delicious sex blog and becoming one with his many bizarro terms and clever acronyms, examples of which include:

Pegging: a name for the sex act in which a woman uses a strap-on dildo to perform anal sex on her male partner (hot).

'Good, Giving, and Game,' which is what we should all strive to be for our sex partners. Think 'good in bed,' 'giving equal time and equal pleasure,' and 'game for anything—within reason.' (so rare...)

DTMFA: For years, Savage has told his readers in bad relationships to "DTMFA", or "Dump the Motherfucker Already". (My fave)

Anywhore, in his most recent column, I came across this little sentence which really fucked with my head and made me think: "When we date, we're telling people that we're in a place where we're ready for love, romance, and sex. If we're not, we have no business dating anyone seriously. Period."

Um... yeah. Pretty much.



  1. "...herion is like Twitter (fun at first, sure, but you'll regret it one day)" --- brilliant!

  2. "shit nippled" was cool! Pegging is scary,,, you not ready for dating. S&M probably,,, dating NO!!!!

    HEy Captain Butt Kakes,,,, is THAT why I have the same reaction with both????

  3. I love his definitions for "Santorum" and "Saddleback". Try your best to get them to catch on.
