Savage love: talking dirty
A lot of my readers wrote this week to wish us well. We are fine — scared, but fine — washing our hands compulsively and staying close to home. I'm going to keep churning out the column and recording my podcast, while being careful to maintain a safe social distance from the tech-savvy, at-risk youth. I'm hoping the column and podcast are welcome distractions.
Please take care of yourselves, take care of the people around you, and wash your damn hands. I'm wondering if you know of a word that describes the fetish of getting off from talking dirty. I've searched a lot, and I can't find a label for this kink or fetish. While googling around, I did learn some new terms, like "katoptronophilia" being aroused by having sex in front of mirrors and "pubephilia" being aroused by pubic hairbut I can't seem to find one that describes my kink.
I'm old enough to remember when people who needed to feel a strong emotional connection before they wanted to fuck someone got by without a word or a pride flag of their very own. They just said, "I'm someone who needs to feel a strong emotional connection before wanting to fuck someone. Unfortunately, when someone says, "I'm a demisexual," the usual response is, "What's that? Anyway, DT, you're someone who enjoys dirty talk. There isn't a special term or pride flag for you that I could find — I did a little half-hearted googling myself — and I don't think you need one.
You can get by with "I'm someone who enjoys dirty talk. My wife and I have been married for a little over two years. We both have demanding jobs, but she admits to being a workaholic and spends almost every night on the couch answering s and binge-watching Bravo.
I've resorted to getting high most nights to cover up for the fact that I'm very unhappy. Despite being overworked, she's started a side hustle selling skin-care products to her friends, most of whom she rarely sees in person.
I'm beyond bored and want to travel and explore. But she refuses to give up the side hustle and dial back her work or her drinking.
We both earn comfortable salaries, and we don't need the extra income. Would I be justified in leaving because of her newfound hobby? Side hustle or no, BORE, you aren't happy, and that's reason enough to leave. And while you won't or shouldn't be doing much traveling anytime soon, you can find a lawyer, search for a new apartment, and initiate divorce proceedings while your wife sits on the couch answering work s and pushing skin-care products to her friends.
I would typically encourage someone in your shoes to risk telling the truth before walking out — you're unhappy, you're bored, you don't want to live like this anymore — but it sounds like your mind is made up. So use your time at home over the next couple of weeks to make your escape plan. I'm a young white woman, and my last boyfriend, a Black man, left me two weeks ago. Ever since, I have been masturbating only while thinking about Black guys. My question is: Do I have a "thing" for Black guys now? I've accepted that our relationship is over, but it was really intense.
I feel disgusting after I masturbate, because it feels gross and not respectful toward my ex somehow. What do you think? Masturbate about whatever the fuck turns you on, DHFBM, and if you're worried someone would find your masturbatory fantasies disrespectful I suppose it's possible you have a "thing" for Black guys now. What's that thing they say? Actually, let's not say it. Unless you are treating Black guys as objects and not people, or you fetishize Blackness in a way that makes Black sex partners feel degraded in unsexy, nonconsensual ways or used in ways they don't wish to be useddon't waste your time worrying about your fantasies.
Worry about your actions.
I'm a year-old woman in a long-term cohabitating relationship with a man. We opened our relationship about six months ago, and it's going very well and we both have FWBs. My primary partner and I are going to be getting engaged soon, and I'm wondering what my responsibility is to my FWB of five months. Do I make a special effort to tell him about the engagement — on the phone or in person, like I plan to tell family members and close friends?
Or is it okay if he finds out via social media like other people I've known for only five months or less would? My getting engaged or married won't prevent me from remaining his FWB. Golden rule this shit, WBE: If your FWB got engaged, would you want to find out via social media or would you want him to tell you personally? I'm guessing you'd rather hear it from him. You've known your FWB for only five months, it's true, and other five-months-or-less friends don't rate hearing it from you personally. But you aren't fucking your other five-months-or-less friends.
A little more consideration for your feelings is — or should be — one of the benefits. I used to live in a college town.
While there, I hooked up with a gorgeous guy. He had an amazing smile, a nice body, and the most perfect natural dick I've ever seen. Can we please stop saying "uncut"? It's so disgustingly plastic surgery-ish. We hooked up a couple times, and he was so much fun.
A couple of years later, in another town, he showed up out of the blue at my new job. It was awkward at first, but it got better over the couple of years we worked together. I always wanted to just sneak him into the bathroom and give him another blow job.
He still lives in the same town, and I want to message him to see if he's up for some more fun.
We haven't spoken in years — and last I heard, he was still not out. I want to message him, but I'm wondering whether there's a time limit to reconnecting with someone? Fuck, man, he was so hot, and his natural, big, veiny dick was maybe the most perfect cock I've ever seen. Seeing as you haven't spoken to this man in years, BOD, I'm going to assume you no longer work together.
And seeing as you hooked up more than once back in that college town, I'm going to assume he liked your blow jobs. And seeing as there's a worldwide pandemic on, and seeing as life is short, and seeing as dick is delicious, I'm going to give you the OK to send this guy a message. Social media has made it possible for people to reach out to first loves, exes, and old hookups.
And while social-distancing protocols will prevent you from sucking that gorgeous natural dick anytime soon, BOD, who doesn't need something to look forward to right now? On the Lovecastlove drugs! How therapeutic are they? Listen at savagelovecast. Follow Dan on Twitter fakedansavage.
