It's a very special War on Christmas episode of the Savage Lovecast, full of enough foul-mouthed perversity to make the Baby Jesus weep. A kinky coed and her girlfriends live in dorm rooms with thin walls. How can they get nasty without being expelled? And a considerate houseguest wonders how he and his special lady can get it on when they're staying with friends in New York City. More polyamory problems, coming-out issues, and sex, sex, sex.

On this week's Savage Lovecast: When does a poly relationship turn to poison? Some folks are just meant to be monogamous. Dan solves an interoffice squabble about whether female ejaculation is a myth or a beautiful, sloppy reality. A guy with little sexual experience has fears about approaching women. Should he be honest about his inexperience? A pretty but heavy girl is trapped in a beach town with a bunch of skinny babes and immature jackasses. How long must she wait to catch a good man who appreciates a curve or two? And finally: Poor, poor Owen. Owen is the boy a previous caller moved to New York for, despite his selfish, manipulative behavior. He called the show to assure Dan that he was in the right, his girlfriend was lying, and their relationship is just fine. Listen to the carnage that ensues. 206-201-2720 If you've been on the show, please call and give us an update!
