Awkward Situation of the Week: Richard and Adam got stuck eating brunch with an emotional birthday party.

This Week's Questions:

  • Anonymous asks, "I'm a healthy 24 years old gay fella. To tell the truth, I've never had any real relationship with other guy. Not even kissing or making out. It's not that I feel disgusting about it or anything, in fact, I think I'll enjoy it (a lot). I just don't like the idea of me hanging out in a bar or on the internet and hook up with any random guy, waking up in the morning feeling dirty and miserable. I do enjoy being gay and am proud of it, and I always think that there's someone out there waiting for me, but time is raging, I'm 24 now, running my start-up and it's likely that I'll be busy from AM to PM for the next 6 months. So the question is: Is it abnormal for a 24 years old to be a virgin and should I keep on waiting for God to send a sign, or should I go out on a date with some random guy? P.S. If it makes a difference, I'm Asian and a bottom."
  • Anonymous asks, "What should you do if you're relatively short but have a relatively large male part and want to attract women but your height doesn't represent the proportional size of your male part?"
  • Anonymous asks, "I am a gay man and my 'johnson' is four inches and not thick or anything. I'm a short guy so it doesn't look teeny-tiny but I'm a top, or I wanna be. Every guy I'm with wants me to bottom. I don't think I look like a bottom, I'm just short. I don't know if it's because I have a small dick or what. What can I do about it?"
  • Blake asks, "I'm handsome but have never had a girlfriend. Girls just aren't interested in me. What are the possible reasons?"

Special Segment: Michael K, telephone psychic at Foretell.

Final Thoughts: Rachel has an update on Britney Spears' vagina.
