My boyfriend doesn't give me head, ever. Maybe twice in our entire three-year relationship and only when I practically begged him to. It bothers me because I love performing oral on him all the time and just making him feel good in general. It's like he is scared of my vagina or something and it really fucking offends me. Yet he has no problem dick-probing it. Whenever I ask things get kind of awkward. What's a girl to do?

Get another boyfriend.

I'm not kidding. Either open up your relationship and add in a new guy who loves to eat pussy, or if you're a serial monogamist, break up with your current boyfriend and replace him with one who isn't cunniligually challenged.

It may seem drastic, but I assure you, it's the only solution to your problem that involves anyone ever willingly going down on you again.

A guy, a friend, who I've had a peripheral crush on for a year and a half is breaking up with his long-term girlfriend. What is the most respectful way to mention “hey, remember that time we joked around about how I would totally hit that if you weren't in a loving, committed relationship? So for real now.”

Chill the fuck out. Seriously, take a deep breath and contain your glee at the prospect of jumping on this guy's dick while it's still warm from the ex-girlfriend's dismount.

Think about the consequences. Unless you're prepared to lose a friend in a flurry of awkward rebound sex, don't offer yourself up as his break-up gift bag. Even if you don't mind the potential mess, try and play it cool. Keep it simple. No strings, no bullshit.

You may just want a little sex, but anyone fresh out of a relationship can be a raw nerve. Don't let your peripheral crush add to his drama.

Last night, I had to fantasize about my recent ex in order to get off with the new guy I'm sleeping with. Guess that means I shouldn't be having sex again yet, huh?

Nah, it happens. Quit punishing yourself and just enjoy your damned orgasm.

I slept with a good friend of mine who is a few years younger over a month ago and it's taken that amount of time for him to stop being awkward and distant with me. I would like to hook up with him again, but how do I go about that while still keeping our friendship intact?

You don't. Learn your fucking lesson. Not everyone is prepared to combine sex and friendship. It's not your fault if your friend can't handle it, but it is your fault if you let sex detonate the friendship when you should already damn well know better.
