Re: HPV, polyamory, and celibacy

Hey oteboog, it's good to hear that you've talked several times about boundaries and comfort zones. I just feel bad sometimes thinking other women might have sex with him while I can't. Considering that this seems to be a condition of this relationship, is that something you are willing to accept? I...

Re: stressed about results

Hey terezichen, Glad to hear that the stressor of waiting for those test results is out of the way. Since you say you would be comfortable making appointments with your therapist if you had their number, have you considered getting their number? For instance, if you know their name, the name of the ...

Re: Combination pill

Hi Cloudnine, Effectiveness rates for any method of birth control are based on one year of usage, not on any specific incident of sex. For the combined pill, this does include times when a partner ejaculates inside of you. These rates are based on using one method alone, and do not take into account...

Re: Came inside condom

Hey Spiderman,

As long as the condom didn't change position during that one thrust then that is unlikely to make a difference, so the information you got from everyone else is still the best answer to your question.

Re: Friendless, single, lonely

Glad to hear you're getting started on doing things that need doing, In terms of the nursing home, the only thing I would suggest adding to what you're going to say is the word "volunteer", since it is one of those key words that can often get people really excited. If, of course, you're l...

Re: LGBT books/movies that don't end in tragedy

Great topic Sam! One of my all time favourite books is The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers. It's not super heavy on the queer aspects of the book, but it does have (SPOILERS) two female characters who enter into a relationship, and I particularly enjoy that there's no huge deal ma...
