I'm an 18-year-old guy with an awesome kinky girlfriend. She likes getting tied up, blindfolded, spanked and just about anything else we can think of. It's awesome, and we're both having a great time. My question is this: We were watching some BDSM porn and they used these amazing contact lenses that worked as blindfolds because they were completely opaque. I've searched high and low and cannot find them. I was wondering if you could help us out!
Ropes Should Come Included
P.S. I guess I wrote in to brag a little, too.
Hmm. You searched high and low for opaque contact lenses without any luck. Really? Because just .28 seconds after I Googled 'opaque contact lenses,' RSCI, I was clicking through a dozen websites that sell opaque contact lenses. 'Please note, you are not able to see through these lenses,' one site warned. 'Unless you want to find out how it is to be blind,' read the disclaimer on another, 'wear a white-out contact lens in one eye only.' Apparently, opaque contact lenses are only for people who want to find out what a lack of depth perception is like.
So, RSCI, it seems that bragging -- about all that awesome BDSM sex you're having -- was the only reason you wrote in.
I'm an 18-year-old woman living in Canada and currently in a relationship with a 21-year-old man whom I care deeply about. From the first couple weeks of dating, we've been expressing our feelings for each other through sex, which is great, because I have an incredibly high sex drive. However, as much as my boyfriend enjoys the quality of our adventurous intimacy (sex outdoors, anal, light kink), I'm starting to wonder whether the quantity isn't so good for him. We have sex up to three times a day. And once we had it six times. Afterward, I'm a little sore but I'm not about to keel over or anything. My boyfriend, on the other hand, gets sick, as in physically ill, and he can be sick for a couple days. I always feel horrible about it, and I've begun to question whether I should tone down my drive. Even though he's often ill, he sometimes is the one to suggest that we have more sex, even at the price of not feeling well later. Have you heard of someone getting sick from too much sex? I suppose everything in moderation may be the answer to this, but he is a smoker, and because smoking can complicate just about everyone's health, maybe that's a factor.
Tireless In TO
Having a lot of sex may make a person sore, and it may tire a person out, but it isn't going to make a person sick, TITO. So what we have here may be the rarest of all occurrences: a complete coincidence. You're having sex with a sickly person, not having sex that makes a healthy person sick.
And your sickly, smoking boyfriend needs the attentions of a doctor, TITO, not a sex-advice columnist.
I'm a 27-year-old lesbian. Several months ago, my girlfriend of two years broke up with me. When I moved out, I left the sex toys I knew were hers and took the rest. For the previous eight months the sex toys had been collecting dust because she'd lost much of her interest in sex. The first night she was back after I left, she texted me to ask for specific toys back! This infuriated me, because after months of little interest in sex, the first thing she asks about is sex toys?! I made some insensitive comments about how I took the toys because I thought I might find someone who actually wanted to have sex with me, and she got angry. I ended up giving her all the toys back because I didn't want them any more after the argument.
What should the etiquette be around sex toys when two women break up, especially when strong feelings are involved?
Babe In Toyless Land
Have two women ever broken up without strong feelings being involved?
The etiquette around the division of sex toys after a breakup is the same that applies to the division of any property post-breakup, BITL. The splitting couple has a tense discussion about divvying up their shared property; if an agreement can't be reached, they sue the shit out of each other. It would be foolish to sue an ex over a dusty collection of strap-ons and vibrators, of course, as replacing the average sex toy collection would be less expensive than a lawsuit. But exes have taken each other to court over dumber shit -- custody of dogs, cats, kids, etc.
Sometimes you say the most OUT- rageous things. In the very same column in which you observed that people tend to write to me when they have problems, you wrote that all straight women are reluctant to give head. [Like] many straight men, [Josh] Marshall doesn't see blow jobs as a pleasurable activity for the blower. That's what a lifetime of getting head from straight women can do to a guy. And where did you get the @*^@ idea that straight women don't like giving head? From people with problems who write in to you! Guys married to women who love giving head don't write in and complain! Hello?!
I am a straight woman - AND I LOVE GIVING HEAD. I love cock. All of my girlfriends LOVE giving head. And we are good at it! So the next time you're tempted to say something based on the information you get from the people with problems who write in to you, ask yourself, Hmm, do I actually know this to be true? Or is it just sexist bullshit?
This Woman Grooves On The Mouth Feel In Canada
P.S. My sign-off is a mouthful on purpose!
Good points, TWGOTMFIC: I do get a lot of letters from straight men complaining about the head they're not getting and/or the reluctant head they are getting. My sample is hopelessly skewed and I apologize for the crack.
But while we're on the subject, TWGOTMFIC, I would like to say this to women who don't give head, or give it badly in hopes of never being asked to give it again, thus prompting their boyfriends and husbands to flood my e-mail inbox with complaints: You do realize, ladies, that oral-sex-free marriages are reviving the long-moribund institution of 'trade,' i.e., gay men giving head to straight men? The Internet has made it incredibly easy for straight men to get free, NSA oral sex whenever they like -- provided they're capable of clamping their eyes shut and thinking about pussy while another man goes down on them.
And, yes, many straight men who complain about not getting blow jobs have only themselves to blame. It's impossible to know just how many orally deprived straight guys would be getting blown -- and blown enthusiastically -- if it weren't for poor personal hygiene, little and/or lousy cunnilingus and just general assholery, but doubtless it's a significant percentage.
