Savage Love: Quite Quick 

I took Molly with my best bud. We wound up cuddling and telling each other everything. We didn't mess around — we're both straight guys — but one of the things I told him is that I would much rather eat pussy than fuck, and one of the things he told me is that he's not at all into eating pussy and pretty much only likes to fuck. I think we'd make a great team: We're both good-looking, athletic dudes and we should find a woman who loves to have her pussy eaten and loves to get fucked. I would go down on her and get her going (and coming), then he steps in and dicks her down (and gets her off one last time). What say you?

— Ultimate Package Deal

I would say, "FUCK YES!" if I were a woman, UPD, which I'm not. And while I can't promise you every woman will have the same reaction I did, some women most definitely will.

I'm a male in my late 50s. I went to a urologist for my erection problem, which was helped with ED medication. But orgasms are very hard to achieve, and the ED medication does not seem to make orgasms any easier to have. My girlfriend appreciates the erections, but I would also like to climax. This is very frustrating. Any advice?

— Pills Inhibiting Lusty Loads

Tits and dicks both sag with age, which is why push-up bras and push-up pills were invented. And while ED meds do make it easier for a guy to get an erection, they can also make it more difficult for a guy to climax. Upside: You last longer. Downside: You may sometimes have sex without climaxing. Or you can shift your perspective and try to see this downside as a secret upside: Sometimes you get to enjoy sex without climaxing — and next time, when you do climax, you'll blow a bigger load.

I am a bisexual man who's active in the sex-positive community, and I love playing with couples. I was updating my Feeld profile to reflect this desire, but I realized there's no consistent term for a male unicorn. So I listed "Male/Stag/Stallion/Minotaur/Pegasus," various terms I've seen people use. WTF, it shouldn't require a whole line in my profile to run through all the terms! As the person who famously crowdsourced "pegging," I was hoping you could work your magic and get everyone to agree on a nonbinary term that works for all sexual identities.

— Having One Reliable Name

What's wrong with "unicorn"? Unicorns — the mythical beasts — can be female, male, or, I suppose, genderless or genderfluid. They can be anything we want them to be, HORN, since we made them up. And while the term first came into use to describe bi women who weren't just open to having sex with an established, opposite-sex couple, but open to committing to a couple and forming a poly triad, there's no reason men and/or nonbinary folks who are interested in the same — hooking up with and forming relationships with established couples — couldn't identify as unicorns, too. But are you a unicorn? People began to call those bi women "unicorns" because they were hard to find and everyone, it seemed, was looking for one. People interested in simply playing with couples aren't anywhere near as hard to find.

I've recently begun to experiment with a few kinky friends. One of them is a voyeur who is super into bukkake. I'd be open to a group bukkake scene, but how do I avoid contracting an STI?

— Anonymous Assistant

"On me, not in me" was a safe-sex message crafted in the earliest, darkest, most terrifying days of the AIDS Crisis — and a bukkake scene, which involves multiple men ejaculating on one person, is all about "on me," which makes it relatively safe. So long as you're careful not to get anyone's come in your eyes (ocular gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia are all things) or on your hole(s), you won't have anything to worry about.

Is there a regional difference between people who use the word "come" versus people who use "jizz"? I personally only use the word "come" and rarely hear anyone use "jizz." Do people not use "jizz" or do they just not use it where I live?

— Seeking Pretty Unnecessary Niche Knowledge

I've seen maps that track regionalisms like "soda" versus "pop," SPUNK, but I've never seen one tracking "come" versus "jizz." Seems like something a sex-positive linguist might want to jump on.

I'm a 46-year-old man and I recently met a 31-year-old woman. We have not had PIV sex yet, but we have enjoyed several nights of cuddling, spooning, etc. as the relationship progresses. She has made it very clear she wants our first time to be a fairy-tale evening, so we have yet to take things past mild foreplay. Plot twist: After two nights of us sleeping together, I realized she's a sexsomniac. She had no idea until I told her, and she barely believes me. But if I put my arm around her to cuddle when she's asleep, she immediately sexually responds to the skin-to-skin contact. On two occasions she's performed oral on me. I'm not complaining, as this is quite possibly every guy's dream. My question is around consent when dealing with situations like this.

— She's My Dream Girl

Unless your new girlfriend gave you permission to initiate skin-to-skin contact in the middle of the night — unless she not only didn't have a problem with the first blowjob you accidentally triggered but explicitly gave you the go-ahead to trigger more — you have already and repeatedly violated her consent. If she doesn't want to do more than cuddle or spoon when she's awake, you shouldn't be manipulating her into blowing you when she's asleep. Most people who are partnered with sexsomniacs prefer not to have sex with their partners when they're unconscious, but some do — with their sexsomniac partner's prior consent. It's a gray area, because an unconscious person can't offer meaningful, enthusiastic, ongoing consent. But unless there are details you've omitted — details like your partner saying, "I blew you in my sleep? Really! Neat! I'm happy to keep doing that!" — stop initiating skin-to-skin contact when she's asleep or stop pretending you care about consent. (You should care about consent and you should stop.)

I've been seeing a guy. We're not really "boyfriend and girlfriend" and we're not exclusive. Last night, him and my best friend and I were all hanging out in his bedroom. After a while, I went to sleep on the couch in the living room and left them in the bedroom. When I woke up, they were having sex. I had told them both it was okay for them to have sex with each other, but I didn't expect them to do it when I was just in the other room.

— Unwelcome Personal Surprise Enraging Totally

You're not exclusive, UPSET, and you gave this guy and your best friend permission to fuck, and ... they fucked. But you got something out of it, too: You learned an important lesson. Namely, no one can read your mind. If you give someone permission to do something with someone else sometime, and both those someones are sitting on a bed, you need to bring up any and all additional conditions before falling asleep on the couch in the next room.
