A woman’s sister has been in a secret relationship for 7 years. Can or should she talk her sister out of what she thinks is an unhealthy relationship?

A woman discovers that she gets off from spitting in her boyfriend’s mouth. Is this common? Is this wrong?

On the Magnum, Dan chats with Alice Dreger, author of The Talk: Helping Your Kids Navigate Sex in the Real World about whether it’s cool to let your 12 year old daughter get that teeny-tiny, little bikini.

And a shy straight guy can’t figure out how to ask a girl out even when she’s making ggo-goo eyes at him on the train.
