Awkward Situation of the Week: Lindsay (IUD girl) shares an epic tale of bad sex, physical injury, and a shit ton of Tylenol.

This Week's Questions:

  • Andrew (SM) asks, "My girlfriend and I split two weeks ago because of a BS argument and have been talking about getting back together. We can easily get past that, but since she lives so far away now I won't see her that often. Since we split we both are online dating, should we still date other people and hope for the best? We both claim to love each other, and I do. I'm just afraid to put myself 100% out there with her now. Any advice?"
  • Jeremy (21/BM) asks, "I have a giant dick and I can't find a girl or guy (I'm bisexual, 21 btw) who wants to take it. It's like comically large and not sexy large. Like it was photoshopped. I don't know any guys as big as me and have never seen porn with guys as big as me. My doctor thinks I'm a freak of nature. I just want to fuck but to any sexual partner's it's like fucking a log. I can't get blow jobs either for the same reason, and hand jobs are awkward cuz you can just imagine jacking off a meat loaf and you'll get the idea. It's not for just one hand. I don't masturbate cuz it depresses me so I think I'll become a monk or something or is penis reduction surgery something that's real?"
  • Anonymous (23/SM) asks, "I'm 23, male, and a virgin. I suffer from premature ejaculation when I make out with a girl or if masturbating. I'm afraid to date b/c I feel I would make a girl miserable with my problem. Am I worrying too much? What should I do about my problem?"

Special Segment: We don't have time for that this week, jeez!

Final Thoughts: A dildo filled with your lover's ashes. Let's just think about that for a minute.

  • This Dildo Holds Your Dead Lover's Ashes : Sex toy technology is getting pretty advanced, but even the most sophisticated teledildonics has not solved the problem of how to properly memorialize one’s deceased sex partner while masturbating. That’s where artist Mark Sturkenboom comes in: He’s created a blown-glass dildo that doubles as an urn.
