On the heels of his Emmy-winning It Gets Better campaign, Dan Savage delivers “powerful messages for both the head and heart” (Entertainment Weekly)
 
From the moment he began writing his syndicated sex-advice column, Savage Love, Dan Savage has never been shy about expressing his opinion on controversial topics—political or otherwise. Now, he addresses issues ranging from parenting and the gay agenda to the Catholic Church and health care. Among them:
 

  • Why straight people should have straight “pride” parades, too
  • Why Obamacare, as good as it is, is “still kinda evil”
  • Why what passes for sex-ed in America is more like “sex dread”
  • Why the Bible is “only as good and decent as the person reading it”

 
Speaking to a broad range of subjects with brutal honesty and irreverent humor, American Savage cements Dan Savage’s place as a provocative and insightful voice in American culture.

What they found was “women and men reported higher levels of relationship satisfaction when their partners said they’d made more ‘sexual transformations’ (when their partners had been game for more- or less-frequent sex, trying new sexual activities, etc.).” Herbenick clarifies that being willing to make “sexual transformations”—being game to try something

would always say, “I know you don’t pray, Daniel. Just keep them in your thoughts.” My mom knew that thoughts were the best I could do. And for months after my mother’s death, sitting in the pews at St. James Cathedral, I stared at a marble statue of the Virgin Mother, trying to keep my mother in my thoughts. We were close in that cliché way that so many gay men and their mothers are. Today anti-gay bigots argue that being gay is a sinful choice that gay people make because our parades look like

actually save this marriage, the one thing that might make it possible for this man to stay married and stay sane: Get it elsewhere. If I were to give that advice, and if the letter writer were to follow it, I would also urge him to be discreet (don’t humiliate your wife), and to be dishonest (don’t make your wife cry by asking permission). But when I tell people who are trapped in sexless-but-otherwise-rewarding marriages to get it elsewhere—and urge them to show consideration by being discreet

constitutional right to carry guns into your workplace but not their workplace. It seems to me that members of Congress should have to live and work under the same threat of random gun violence that the rest of us do. If our elected officials believe it should be legal for Americans to carry concealed weapons into schools, churches, shopping malls, and offices buildings, it should be legal for Americans to carry concealed weapons into the US Capitol Building.
