Awkward Situation of the Week: Adam gets a surprise visit from his mother while trimming a wig.

This Week's Questions:

  • Mattheyós (Voicemail) asks, "A quick note about a flamboyant homosexual."
  • Mathæyós asks, "Hey guys, I just thought I’d update you because Richard asked for an update and clarification. I was going to go to a munch and get into the local kink scene but I didn’t want to get an STD (even though I would use a condom) on top of my Infantile Nephropathic Cystinosis, Aspergers/NVLD, misophonia, osteoporosis, hypokalemia and prior strokes. Also, everyone attending was in their 40s to 50s—not exactly the age group I’m attracted to. For relationships/dating, I find that the majority of women—for whatever reason—write off a guy completely when they find out that I have medical conditions, don’t work, I’m on SSI, and I live with my mother (none of this is my fault and in fact I live with my mother currently because my ex walked out so suddenly I had to move in the middle of the night). As far as reading goes, one of my goals this year is to read 52 books—I find that having goals tends to stop me from spiraling into a pit of depression and realizing that life is inherently meaningless. But I’m going to Long Island Who (a Doctor Who convention), and I might meet someone there, so I have that going form me, which is nice. And Adam, you’re the one who pronounces my name closest to the correct pronunciation. I spent a half hour trying to spell it out for Siri, and it says it correctly when it reads it. Thanks. Mathæyós"
  • Ell (21/SF) asks, "Aloha guys! First of all, thank you so much for the show, it's always so great to listen to. I've been a fan for about a year now, and, funny enough, I love listening to it in the gym; it adds so much fun to the workout time. I haven't thought that I would have a question for you one day (my life didn't have much awkwardness to it), but something happened and I'd like to hear your thoughts on that. Please, excuse me if my words seem unnatural, English is not my mother tongue. I'm 21-year-old straight female, by the way. During the last time we had sex with my boyfriend he suggested anal. I agreed, we did it slowly and it was a fun experience. I really enjoyed it and he did too. However, he showed some (maybe even a lot of) surprise that I wanted to do that which has comfused me. I don't have any preconceived notions about sex (or maybe I'm just not very educated), so it was not a problem for me as I'm willing to try new things. After that I (of course) googled it, and apparently anal sex is a big deal, almost a taboo, and not everybody does it. Could you please talk about it, why this is such a sensitive topic? I don't really understand where is the problem so I'd like to hear your thoughts on that. Also, maybe some tips for how to prepare for anal. Thanks a lot, Ell"
  • Gerard (20/SM) asks, "1) Is it safe to piss in my GF's vagina? 2) How best to do it? 3) Location location location?"
  • Anonymous asks, "Hey Adam, not sure if this question is better suited for Awkward Human or Supercharged, so I'll let you choose. I listen to both, so I'll get my answer either way. :) Recently, two different friends went on trips (they don't know each other). I would have loved to have gone with either one, but they didn't ask me. These are people who I consider fairly good friends. My job would allow me both the time off and being able to afford trips, plus I have a ton of travel experience that could be useful for trip planning. How can I tell my friends this without coming off as needy or make them feel awkward for not inviting me? Thanks!"
  • Anonymous (19/M) asks, "Every time I enter a pool I get hard and then cum. I'm not getting horny and it's not a fetish. It's like a chemical thing with chlorine maybe? Is that possible? I like to swim and go to the beach but this is so embarrassing. Maybe it's not safe too. I really don't know what to do. I'm 19 and this has happened since 4th grade swim class."
