Awkward Situation of the Week: Our awkward holiday stories!

This Week's Questions:

  • Harrison (19/GM) asks, "I'm gay and a butt virgin but I know in my heart of hearts I'm a 100% bottom. I have fantasies of passionate sex where I am getting fucked pretty hard but by big, thick dicks. As you know, I am a virgin and this is a mind-only fantasy so far and not a reality. I do not have experience bottoming at all, and I have only put some small things in there like my fingers and pens and other household items. I don't have anything that's big fat dick-sized. I want to get some practice in and start getting laid. I don't need to be in a relationship because I just want to explore my sexuality now. I've given lots of blow jobs and I had a gag reflex in the beginning but now I can choke on penis without the actual choking part. It's great. I just love having a dick in me and I want it up my ass all the time but I don't want to get hurt. I want a pleasurable experience where I can really enjoy getting fucked. What do I need to know to keep my asshole intact for generations?"
  • Talia (29/SF) asks, "I have been in a relationship with my guy for five years now. We just had our anniversary and he moved in with me about a year and a half ago. We've talked about marriage and we'll probably get engaged sometime in 2015. My boyfriend is hot, I love him, the sex is great, he's my best friend, etc. Our relationship is perfect except for one thing: I keep wishing I could do some hookups. This is what is so completely messed up about this: I don't like hookups! Before we met I used to go on craigslist or wherever else and meet up with guys and fuck them. The variety of our sex activities varied but usually it was intercourse because I can actually orgasm from intercourse. I met an incredible variety of guys and have all these wonderful memories from the hookups. The sex was only okay, and nothing like the sex with me and my guy, but I still have happy memories of these hookups. I'd get to know these interesting people and fuck them and never had to see them again if I wanted. Ever since I committed to my guy, I have missed this. I don't want an open relationship and I don't want to cheat on him. I just want to stop wanting this because I don't even like it that much. I just like the memories the hookups make. So how do I deal with this problem exactly? I don't want to say yes to marriage with this looming over us like a bad, slutty omen."
