The Bad Behavior Show

Episode #639 — January 22, 2019

Some of you are doing terrible things. We start with a teen who has been sneaking off with her mother's vibrator. How can her long-suffering parents encourage her to use one without using *that particular* one? A woman's new boyfriend begs her to let him change her tampon, saying it would bring them closer together. Is this a fetish of his? Is this a fetish of anyone's? This isn't "bad," per se but just what the Sam Hill is going on on here? On the Magnum, Dan chats with bad-assed victims' right's lawyer Carrie Goldberg about the hook-up app Grindr dragging their feet on intervening in some very serious harassment going on. Bad! And, we're not done, just you listen! A woman loves to cheat- she loves the sneaking around, the lying, all of it. She doesn't want poly, she wants to cheat! AND. A gay man regularly "sticks it in" without a condom, even when expressly forbidden to do so. That is so, so bad. Dan has his work cut out for him this week.

Erotica by and for women? Yes please...

Episode #604 — May 22, 2018

A 60 year-old man has been dating a woman for 4 months. He wishes she would lose some weight. Oh, and also? She lost her breasts to cancer. Does he have the right to ask her to get a boob job too? Sidle up, dear listener, and hear the tale of the woman, her much older boyfriend, and...and her boyfriend's...son? After hearing this, one of the tech-savvy at-risk youth had to take a walk around the block. But fearlessly, we continue! On the Magnum, Dan interviews Inka, the creator of ForPlay Films: Erotica made by women, for women. And somehow Dan convinced Nancy to talk about sex during a woman's "moon time." This show is a banger. 206-302-2064.

Blood and Sugar: Today's episode spans many topics, including ladies who get compensated for their sweet time. One caller is falling in love with her sugar daddy. Another caller has a fuck buddy who has suggested that he pay her for her services; how much should she charge? A fit gay man has fantasies of being fed into obesity. A man wonders if he and his buddies should pay a prostitute to pretend to pick up their socially awkward virgin friend out of pure desire. And a clever retaliation for the woman whose husband leaves his spunk all over the house. Not for the faint of heart. 206-201-2720 Today's episode is brought to you by AdamandEve.com

My, what a fabulously GAY show we have for you this week. First, a woman notices that though normally heterosexual, she tends to go gay at certain times during her menstrual cycle. Spooky. A GGG gay man would like to indulge his lover's piss fetish, but wants to make sure it's safe first. A man who was sexually abused by his father as a child has made a new friend. The hitch? This friend appears on the sex-offender registry. A father is miffed because his 12-year-old son who just came out won't dish about boys with him. Bareback porn--any ethical problems here? A young man has gained 100 pounds. Hear Dan's reasonable diet/lifestyle regimen here. And more. Call 206-201-2720 even if you're straight.
