What have any of Whedon’s shows taught you about dating?
That it’s deadly and the person you’re with could become someone else at the drop of a hat. The more you love someone, the more likely they will become possessed, chopped in half, shot, have someone else’s demon spawn, or land the ship safely, but die anyway.

What is the best reason to date a Whedon fan?
Open-minded kinkiness abounds.

A friend of mine asked me to be part of a threesome with her and her boyfriend. I’m up for it, but what can I do to make sure things don’t get weird afterward?
Leave. The best thing you can do is remember that no matter how much fun you have during the threesome, immediately after it’s Couple Time. They asked you there to enhance their relationship with each other, not with you. Go and have fun, but know where you stand and make a graceful exit.

Let’s say someone asks you to do something you’re not into in the bedroom; what’s the best way to let them down gently?
Tell them you’re so hot for them right now that you don’t want to risk the moment on something you’re not sure about. Then immediately redirect their attention with some lovely thing you’re doing that you both know you enjoy. Bring up Thing You’re Not Into at a less vulnerable time, without being judgmental.

There are times when, instead of sex, I’d just like my partner to go down on me. How can I assure them that I’m not trying to say they’re bad in bed?
Bad in bed? Reassure them that they are the Going-Down Master, which requires much greater skill.

It’s that time of the month for my girlfriend. I don’t really want to go there, so to speak, but she really wants to. Is there a middle ground that can be reached here?
If she wears a pad, touch through clothing. If she’s a tampon user, here comes some fun — outside stimulation with a hand or a vibrator. Hopefully she will concede to no oral sex so you don’t end up like Carrie at the prom.

I need to know: Spike or Angel?
Faith. Dream big.

A friend of mine asked me to be part of a threesome with her and her boyfriend. I’m up for it, but what can I do to make sure things don’t get weird afterward?
Use a condom, because if you have to tell your friend he or she gave you an STD afterward, that will be pretty weird. And don’t expect either to never do it again or to do it often.

There are times when, instead of sex, I’d just like my partner to go down on me. How can I assure them that I’m not trying to say they’re bad in bed?
“Instead of sex”? Who are you, Bill Clinton? If you make them know you think they’re good at oral sex, they’re not going to think they’re bad in bed. Oral sex requires skill, too. But be sure to reciprocate.

It’s that time of the month for my girlfriend. I don’t really want to go there, so to speak, but she really wants to. Is there a middle ground that can be reached here?
This is where being a vampire would be a big help. But there are other things you could do. Masturbate and tell each other what to do, or watch porn together. Use sex toys on her. Or turn off the lights and keep a towel nearby.

What’s a good one-liner I could use that won’t make my object of affection laugh at me?
I don’t think one-liners actually work. Ever. At best, you could work their laughing at you into your process.

What’s the best way to pick up a fan of Joss Whedon?
“Don’t you just hate Fox?” (Okay, maybe there is a one-liner that works.)

In the bedroom, is it better to be a Captain Hammer or a Dr. Horrible?
Dr. Horrible would have better gadgets. Captain Hammer never gets to do the weird stuff, so he probably doesn’t know how.

I need to know: Spike or Angel?
I like them both, so a better question would be, “Soul or no soul?” Spike would probably be good in bed either way, but Angel is too much of a puppy dog when he has a soul.

I feel like my boyfriend’s Twitter and Facebook interactions with a certain female friend are too flirtatious. How can I talk to him about this without seeming paranoid?
Well, what are the privacy settings on his Twitter and Facebook? I’m assuming that your significant other is a fairly intelligent person. So, if his Twitter is public and their Facebook wall is too, chances are it’s just normal conversation between members of the opposite sex. A smart person would hide evidence of social media courtship.

There are times when, instead of sex, I’d just like my partner to go down on me. How can I assure her that I’m not trying to say they’re bad in bed?
For starters, you could return the favor. Nothing says, “I’m using you and you disgust me” more than a person who just wants to get off and doesn’t care about the person doing all the work. If you go down on them afterward, that says, “I care about you, I think you’re hot, but I just don’t feel like having sex right now.” Sometimes all people really want is a good blowjob. It’s not too much to ask.

It’s that time of the month for my girlfriend. I don’t really want to go there, so to speak, but she really wants to. Is there a middle ground that can be reached here?
You mean that the idea of shedding placenta doesn’t turn you on immediately? Personally, I’m right there with you. At the same time, I get where she’s coming from — menstruation makes girls extra horny. There are things you could do to avoid messes, like do not under any circumstance go down on her. Do it after a nice shower, always wear a condom and try to go for light days.

What have any of Whedon’s shows taught you about dating?
Dating is the scariest thing in the world. I mean, you could have sex with someone and then they only fantasize of stalking and killing you afterward. The object of your affection could be a prostitute. Sometimes, it could even be your fault that they died. That’s seriously terrifying.

In the bedroom, is it better to be a Captain Hammer or Dr. Horrible?
Definitely a Dr. Horrible. I mean, Captain Hammer is that big of a douche because he obviously has a very small penis. And Dr. Horrible is an evil mastermind — you know he’s kinky in the bedroom.

What is the best reason to date a Whedon fan?
Nothing surprises us. And if you perform a particularly memorable sexual act, it could reach cult status with how much we talk about it and reference it in our daily lives.
