Awkward Situation of the Week: Jessica discusses her favorite awkward emergency room stories.

This Week's Questions:

  • Anonymous (Gay Male, 14) asks, "I'm a closeted homosexual. I'm 14 and male. Anyway I like this guy from my class. He is so cute and I dont know if he is gay. I'm from a small school with about 20 people in my grade and I wanna know if he is gay without anyone finding out I'm gay. Is there ayway to go about doing this?"
  • Anonymous (Male) asks, "First of all, your podcast is one of the most hilarious things I have heard. Ever. It is a bit of a hazard because I will be listening to it while working out and will start laughing which isn't good if in the middle of a bench press. So, my situation is, I went to a speed dating event. I know that of the eight ladies I said I would like to see again, four of them are two pairs of friends. If it happens that two friends both say they want to see me again, what is the etiquette for asking either of them out on a second date? Do I need to ask them both out? Should I decide which one I like better based off the speed dating and only ask that one out and not make contact with the other one (seems a little rude)? I am assuming they don't want to share me. THis would be preferable because I barely have enough time for one lady in my life :) Should two friends that come to a speed dating event together decide at the end who they will put down as a 'Yes' so that they don't end up saying 'Yes' with the same person?"
  • Cameron asks, "Ok, I am a gay male and 27. I want to surprise my boyfriend for his birthday. He's old now (38) and I want him to know I still think he's sexy. He loves bang bus porn and so I thought I'd hire a bang bus and he could just fuck me all day while we drive around the city. I don't care about the money. I'm a trust fund baby and proud of it. I just want to make my hot, sexy, awesome boyfriend happy. My question: how do I do this? You talked about hiring a nude cleaner once so I thought you might know. How long do I rent the bus for? Is there a place that does this, or do I need to do this piecemeal? I mean, can I rent a U-Haul and then hire a driver? Where do I find a driver? Also, a question for Adam: if I buy a Go Pro can I mount it in the van and will it be able to record everything for all the time we're in there, or is there a better camera? Also, how long do you think I need to rent the bang bus for? Thanks, I love you guys and aloha!"
  • Kelly (20 SF) asks, "I was in love with a bad guy and we started dating. He was insensitive, and a smoker and a drinker. Also he was very selfish. I wanted to make love with him but he just did what he liked and didn't ask me what I wanted. We talked about this and his behavior and after four months he suddenly changed into a non-smoking, caring, sensitive boy. He is a totally different person and I think I changed him and I don't like him anymore. He loves me but it's not enough. What should I do?"

Special Segment: Lindsay Calhoon Bring, co-writer of Penguins vs. Possums and writers PA on VH1's Hindsight, talks about getting an IUD.

Final Thoughts: When is gay voice too gay?
