A: The defining characteristic of a very good friend is being able to talk with her about difficult subjects. Here comes the test of your friendship, kiddo. Be friendly — but not in the least flirtatious — when you next meet. Avoid being alone with her. If she puts the moves on you, tell her exactly what you've said here — that you're fond of her, but that you feel guilty betraying your relative and are unwilling to do it again. Then, make sure that you don't.
Q: I'm a lesbian in pursuit of casual sex. Since I've had just a few chance one-night stands and have mostly been in committed relationships, I'm at a loss over where to look. Massage ads seem mostly for heterosexuals; I'm also scared of being arrested for solicitation. I can't seem to find the clubs with back rooms. I don't think there are any outside of San Francisco and New York City. I wish more women were like me.
A: You have my assurances that you are not a sexual unicorn. Bars have been the traditional meeting place for those interested in quick sex. Even if they have no back room, chatting up a likely prospect and then asking if she'd like to come home with you is not unheard of. Mostly in the major cities, sure, but strip clubs often have nights for women, while other places have play parties for those of all orientations. Lastly, many heterosexual swing clubs allow single women in free — and more than a few women who identify as straight are looking to experiment with woman-to-woman sex. Be creative, be daring and read the ads carefully. You'll find others seeking what you want.
Q: I am a 25-year-old bisexual woman with a new boyfriend. For some reason, I can't come without ejaculating buckets. It was great in the beginning, because I have multiple orgasms and it was this huge, physical sign that he was making me come. This was a turn-on for him; it helped him come as well. Two months later, however, we are both fed up with doing laundry. We also have ridiculous amounts of sex — when we have a full day together, we get it on four times. Although I have always been a squirter, I wasn't having such a problem with my ex-girlfriends, because we didn't have sex as often. We also weren't fucking so much — it was more clitoral stimulation, and the crazy stuff seems directly related to my G-spot. Is there a way to train myself to have G-spot orgasms without ejaculating? The sex is fantastic, and I know we're both lucky, but I'm hoping there's an answer to this besides sticking to the clit or having less sex.
