Savage Love | Opinion | Pittsburgh | Pittsburgh City Paper

I am a bi woman happily married to a straight man, and we both participate in hot sexy times with other women during threesomes. It's hard to find hot 30ish bi girls where we live, but the encounters we've had were excellent. Everything was great until three weeks ago, when we had a miscarriage. We'd been trying for almost two years, so the recovery is not just physical but emotional.

We were only recently given the go-ahead to have sex again. Both of us have said that, just for right now, we're not looking for anything more than just us.

I went to the computer this morning to find that my husband had left his e-mail open. His inbox was filled with replies to recent queries sent to girls looking for couples to hook up with. His e-mails to these girls ask what gets them hot and when/where we can all hook up, and state that his wife is really excited about f-ing her. I'm probably overreacting due to all the extra hormones, but he's lying to them, and I'm not sure what he's doing to me.

Confused & Hormonal


I'm so sorry for your loss. A miscarriage when you're trying to conceive is an utterly heartbreaking experience.

Two things in your letter leaped out at me: "It's hard to find hot 30ish bi girls where we live" and "Both of us have said that, just for right now, we're not looking for anything more than just us." And one thing that isn't in your letter leaped out at me: You found no evidence that your husband was planning to meet any of these girls alone. He isn't cheating and wasn't planning to. He was making tentative, vague plans for the three of you to get together at some point. And that isn't gonna happen until you're ready, right?

So here's what your husband is guilty of: He is looking forward -- too soon and too eagerly -- to having threesomes again. And it looks like he was trying to dig up one of those "hard to find" hot 30ish bi girls, so that when you were ready, she would be all lined up.

Was that a shitty thing for him to do? Perhaps. But are you sure he understands that just looking is out-of-bounds? Perhaps when you said, "We're not looking for anyone else right now," he heard, "We're not sleeping with anyone else right now."

As upsetting as it was to find those e-mails, I think your husband deserves some credit. Your miscarriage was no doubt upsetting for him, too, but it didn't impact his sexual interests the way it impacted yours. So he didn't put pressure on you -- he didn't even bring the subject up. All he did was put some feelers out and do a little online flirting and planning. 

So let's pretend that you never ran across those e-mails. Let's imagine that six months or a year from now, you're feeling the urge to have some sexy times with a hot 30ish bi girl. And you tell your husband and he replies, "Hey, that's great. I've been chatting with a few hot 30ish bi girls online I thought you might like. You wanna see their pictures?"

You probably wouldn't have said, "YOU ASSHOLE! You weren't even supposed to be LOOKING until I said so!" I'm thinking you would've said something like "My husband is the best."


I'm about to move in with my boyfriend of four years, but my attraction to him has faded. I went out for innocent drinks with a colleague and ended up back at his place. I'm still giddy from the hot sex with my colleague, but I'm confused! Especially because I don't feel guilty -- I feel great! I have no plans to tell the BF, a man I love very much and don't want to hurt. What do I do?

Girl on a Hot Tin Roof


Unless you're planning to put your boyfriend painlessly to sleep, there's no way to avoid hurting him. You're not really in love with him, you're not attracted to him, and the longer you drag this relationship out, the greater the hurt will be once you finally dump him, or he discovers the truth on his own. I would tell you to DTMFA, but you're the MF in this scenario. End it.


THE CHOICER CHALLENGE: Last week, the leader of British Columbia's Conservative Party, John Cummins, said gay people shouldn't be covered by the BC Human Rights Act because being gay is "a conscious choice."

Like truthers (9/11 was an inside job!) and birthers (Barack Obama was born in Kenya!), choicers appear to be just another group of deranged conspiracy theorists. And John Cummins isn't the only choicer out there. We have lots of choicers right here in the United States (Tony Perkins, Rick Santorum, et al.).

But what if being gay is something people consciously choose? Gee, if only there were a way for choicers to prove they're right ... 

Actually, there is a way! I hereby publicly challenge John Cummins to prove that being gay is a choice by choosing it himself.

Suck my dick, John.

I'm completely serious about this, John. You're not my type -- you're about as far from my type as a human being without a vagina gets -- but I have just as much interest as you do in seeing this gay-is-a-choice argument resolved. You name the time and the place, and I'll show up with my dick and a camera crew. Then you can show the world how this "conscious choice" is made. You can flip the switch, sink to your boney old knees and suck my dick. And after you've swallowed my load, we'll upload the video to the internet and you'll be a hero to choicers everywhere.

It's time to put your mouth where your mouth is, John. Suck my dick.
