Re: male friend crushes on me

Hi Lyle Lanley, I don't think you're immature at all, I just think you might need some time away to process everything, and then you might have the energy to tell this person that you don't want to continue the friendship. Does that sound right? I'm the type of person who is quick to say "You d...

Re: Can you get really aroused when high? Can others smell it?

Hi Kiritolover59, Yes, getting high can make you aroused. It increases your senses (like touch, as you mentioned) and lowers your inhibitions. This is not an unusual experience, and I don't think there's anything you can do to stop it, other than not do it around friends if you are concerned about t...

Re: masturbation help

Hi thatbabe20, I don't think the grinding caused you to mess something up or cause nerve damage. Masturbation comes in many forms and grinding on something is one of them, so there's nothing unusual about that. Also, you aren't alone when it comes to not feeling much with fingering because the major...

Re: Negative Pregnancy Test

Hi ailel, Typically, people wait 14 days after they have sex to use a pregnancy test, so I think you did everything right. If taking another test will make you feel more secure and comfortable, then go ahead! You can read more about this here: Peeing on a Stick: All About Pregnancy Tests under the s...

Re: idk what to title this

Re: advice on getting into sexting?

If you're still curious, you could always call your gynecologist and ask about how the pill impacts bladder symptoms. That might answer your question, plus you'll get information directly from your doctor!

Even if that isn't the intention of the text, I think you should communicate how you feel to your friend so...
