Caitlyn: "I need help. So my bf and I were talking last night and he asked me if I would be okay with giving him a blowjob. We both turn 16 in less than a month, and we've been dating for about 6 months but this is both our first relationship. I told him yes, I don't have a problem with it and would be chill to try it. My question is how do I give a good bj? Finding a private place isn't really an issue, both our parents work late every night. Any tips or suggestions for doing oral?"
Ashton: "I’m not sure if this mystery has been answered for Erica or not yet. My fiancé is also obsessed with cherry turnovers. After months of searching we found them. They’re available at Walmart in the states. Love the show!"
Anonymous: "So, my ex girlfriend and I broke up a few months ago, but her twin sister (they don't look alike if that means anything.) is being very weird. She always texts me and tells me I'm cute and hot (no Darren, I'm not sending pictures.) and flirts a lot, but then talks about how straight she is. She tells me all the time that she would date me if she weren't straight. Am I the only one who finds this weird? Do you think she's really straight? What should I do about this? Just let it happen, or put an end to it? Thanks for your advice! "

- How to Give a 5 Minute Blow Job In 3 Easy Steps
“The more you are willing to do, the more he will do in return.” That about sums it up. We are all selfish in bed, when it comes down to it, apparently. At least in the eyes of this author. While I haven’t attempted the auto-fellatio test or the ever-awkward, “Hey, I need help reviewing this zine” line, this is a solidly-compelling read. Aside from the obvious skills, there’s the lesson here in understanding that people come in different shapes and sizes and how that will benefit your relationship skills out of bed. I could summarize the actual steps to the trick but what fun is that? Get the zine!
- It Didn't Start With You
