Brandon wrote in because he used to find it super hot to spy on girls, like the scene in the movies Porky’s. But now, as a father and adult, he finds it creepy and repulsive. What gives?

If you like thinking about what used to turn you on, what movies and TV shows made an impression, and you like geeking out about pop culture, I am going to have a weekly live show on O.School starting in January on Wednesday evenings. It’s free, so join in the fun!

Kev is lost and needs guidance and acceptance. He thought he was straight, but just started having sex with men and now he can’t get enough. He wants to end up with a wife and kids, but he isn’t sure if he’s gay or bisexual. Is there a way to find a queer woman he can test things out with?

I have lots of feelings about the homophobia in this message, and I also have thoughts about the need to find a label and to cling to certain identities, even in the face of other information and experiences.

A young queer woman wrote in asking how she can find information about safer sex for queer teens in Dallas Texas. What does safer sex look like? Who can she trust?

I recommend checking out Scarleteen, first and foremost. Also, Planned Parenthood is a go-to resource, especially for sex positive care and sex ed info for teens. Once she’s over 18, there’s also the SW Sexual Health Alliance and a sex positive shop in Austin called QToys. And of course, Allison Moon’s “Girl Sex 101” is a book everyone should have on their shelves.

Dan wants to know where to find sex positive therapists. I recommend starting with the Open List by Tristan Taormino and also AASECT.

Jack wrote in with lots of love. THANK YOU JACK! Also, how can Jack up their sexting game? They aren’t very good at it. Check out my free Sexting Made Easy handout to get you started.

Three cheers for uberlube. Random unless you listen!

A 23-year-old wrote in. He just had sex for the second time but he couldn’t cum. Is he just too used to his masturbation technique? Is something wrong? Let’s talk about orgasms and goals and the pressure we put on ourselves during sex.
