When in a kayak, what is the best position for sex?
Ride, Sally, ride.
Or possibly 69 — disperse the weight as equally as possible to prevent tipping.
You turn on music when things start getting intimate, and the other person judges your musical taste. How do you get back into the moment? Potential fixes?
Laugh about it. Laugh at how much of a hipster you are (or how much you like One Direction) and move on. Let them choose a Pandora station, and then if a bad song comes on, you can blame Pandora.
Just laugh, because you should laugh a little during sex anyway.
So I’m a lesbian and I’m thinking of asking out a girl. She’s everything I want, but for me I hate being friendzoned . . . so I would ask her out before becoming friends. The problem is that I’m worried about it being awkward. Also, I don’t know if she’s straight or bi or gay, and if she is bi or gay, if she is even into me. Also her friends, who I know better than her, will probably think I’m a skeeze if I ask her out and then she gets creeped out. It’s a whole lot of hot biddy mess. Help please, and thank you!
There are definitely ways of figuring out someone’s sexuality without making it obvious. You can ask her if there’s any hot lady celebrity she’d go gay for, for example. But I think that in this case, you should straight up ask her. Compared to other campuses, people are generally pretty down with the gay/bi/queer population (which is not to say that there aren’t real issues with LGBT rights on campus), and straight girls tend to be flattered more than creeped out when lesbians ask them out.
Ask her on one relatively non-committal date (a date, unquestionably a date — not a “oh we’re friends we have a study date”), but tell her that you are also just interested in being friends with her if she doesn’t want to go out. You could also ask your friends about her sexual orientation, but I honestly would not worry about being awkward. As long as it’s clear that you don’t have expectations about her sexual behavior or what her feelings toward you are, and you’re upfront, you will have minimal awkwardness.
What do you do if you get caught in the moment, and realize you don’t have any tissues or toilet paper, but you’re about finish with someone? Do you stop and get something to clean up . . . or make a mess?
Condoms can also be a good option for cleanup. People tend to think that condoms are just useful for baby-making avoidance or not getting HIV/AIDS, but the truth is, condoms are like an awesome little sex toy. For example, if you’re getting head, a flavored condom can keep things interesting for your lady friend (or dude friend). Plus, you can get condoms for free.
But I understand that you’re talking about those emergency type of situations where you didn’t think to wrap it up beforehand or get a tissue, and that can be rough. In a bind, use the corner of your sheet if you’re on a bed or your shirt, because those things can go in the laundry. Don’t make a habit of it, though.
