Just curious as to what Scarleteen readers and volunteers think of the advice Dan Savage gives in his "Savage Love" sex & relationship advice column.

Personally I find it refreshing to find someone who refuses to soft-soap things and calls it how he sees it! It's a welcome change from some of the wishy-washy advice I sometimes come across!

What does everyone else think?

I'm not familiar with his column... Any chance you could provide some of us lazy people with a link?

Some of his stuff is good. It's all entertaining. But some of it isn't safe physically nor emotionally, so we don't totally endorse his stuff here. But I get a good larf out of his columns. It's a shame that ST is blocked at my office, but I can read Savage Love just fine.

Sure - http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/savagelove

Please bear in mind this column deals with adult themes with adult language - if you're easily offended please stay away!

I really like it and am a pretty faithful reader. More for entertainment than education, though, but I do learn things occasionally.

I've just started really getting into it. And On the whole i think it's just the right blend of funny/serious/etc.
