Also on the Magnum, a woman suspects she was filmed during sex. What legal recourse does she have? On the Micro version: An out gay man is accused of being "straight acting," even though he's comfortable with his homosexuality. But, he's attracted to straight guys. How can he meet other guys just like him, and does he have some internalized homophobia to work through? Also, Dan reveals his tried and true tips for overcoming fear of flying.

How can we help homeless LGBT youth?

Episode #361 — September 24, 2013

Are young ladies allowed to call or "text" unattached, young men to ask for a date? Or would this tarnish a girl's valued reputation? A sex worker wonders if it's ethical for her to fake orgasms with her clients. On the Magnum version, Dan speaks with the saintly Carl Siciliano, from NYC's Ali Forney Center, the nation's largest organization dedicated to homeless LGBT youths. (Confidential to homophobic parents everywhere: You don't really want your kid to live on the streets do you? Do you?) A bewildered straight couple wonders: In which bathroom should our nation's drag queens dwell? Fragrance. Do you have to wear it if your partner wants you to? And more.

Is there reasonable etiquette regarding the casual eating of pussy? A man refuses to go down on ladies he doesn't know well. Does this make him an asshole?  When she was 14, she made up a violent rape and milked the lie for drama to her boyfriend at the time. Now they are friends and he still believes the story. How on earth can she come clean?  And just when you thought you'd heard it all, Dan counsels a soon-to-be grieving woman on which of her polyamorous partners she should bring to her father's funeral. Humans be complicated.   206-201-2720 This podcast is brought to you by ExtremeRestraints.com. Go buy something, and be sure to enter GGGgiving at checkout.

Whatever should she do?  As always, Dan has the answer.  206-201-2720 This podcast is brought to you by ExtremeRestraints.com. Go buy something, and be sure to enter GGGgiving at checkout.
