  2. He's right.Gay people are much more sexually liberated.

  3. I had to laugh when Dan said that gay men talk to each other about sex. Most anonymous encounters don't involve any talking, Dan.

    Shut up, Dan.

  4. Jason, how about YOU shut up as you don't speak for all Gay men and you're no expert on it Nor have you written for years about it. Maybe YOUR anonymous encounters don't involve talking. You're sounding like a bitter old Queen. And you seem to think that Gay men only have anonymous sex. Shut Up, Jason.

  5. I like the way Dan is so direct; no dancing about what he is saying, it's in your face.......and the points on communication are valid as are the words which he says we all us ;"What are you into?"

    Being gay is direct and should be equally honest.

  6. Jason, just because all of the sex you have is in parks in the dark in silence, doesn't mean that everyone else does it that way. Most gay men do talk before commencing sex.

    Shut up, Jason.

  7. Jason- You're showing your age. No one hooks up with "anonymous" people anymore... the internet changed that. ;)

  8. Sex is always better when it incorporates that four letter word that ends in "k" and means intercourse.

  9. America hates Jason!

  10. Dan is a weirdo who uses the word "gay" to market himself. It's about marketing. We need to stop tying our sails to those who use gay issues to market themselves.

    By the way, my nickname for Dan is Gretchen.

  11. Dan was spot on with this one.

  12. And on that note I have to ask, why are any of you even bothering to respond, yet again, to the troll known as Jason. Are you people incredibly stupid, or just gluttons for punishment.

  13. For once, I'd love to see a Dan Savage conversation on Towleroad be about what the man has said, and not about his fame or his "right" to be "our" spokesperson.

    And on this topic, I think he has an interesting point. Not just yes or no, but What Are You Into? I can tell you this - with my interests, we'd best get to that subject of What Are You Into!

  14. If same-sex relationships are based on "what are you into?", then we really are in trouble. This notion reduces same-sex relationships to the level of a fetish. It reduces us to a sex act.

    How about being into love, Dan?

  15. "What have straight people learned about from gay people besides situps and brunch?"

    ROFL! Love it!

  16. would love to see/hear his one-on-one sex discussion with dr. ruth...

    and i guess dan scored big by being born gay inthis lifetime -- from the sound of things, he must have been an oppressed female hetero in the previous 1,000 or so.

  18. like when a straight friend asked me how often i get head. and if i'd ever dated a guy who didn't like giving head. i couldn't understand the concept.

  19. @Marc C: The Internets abhor a vacuum, so if Jason were to go away another troll would self-recruit to take its place. It's easier to keep the troll we know, and this one is fairly stupid and easy to dismiss. With the next troll we might not be so lucky; maybe the NSA would launch a clever and untiring trollbot on this site, so beware the Law of Unintended Consequences.

  20. I wonder how much Dan gets paid to spout his drivel.

    Posted by: Jason | Jun 23, 2013 9:10:11 PM

  21. Dan Savage is an awful "spokesman" for gay men or bisexual men. How about he stop making stereotypical pronouncements about gay/bi dudes and make it clear that he is just talking about his lifestyle, his values, his beliefs. He speaks for himself and himself only.

    Posted by: Javier | Jun 23, 2013 9:56:42 PM

  22. Javier,

    You are correct about Dan. But there is too much money to be made by spouting stereotypes. Gay stereotypes are a gold-mine.

    Posted by: Jason | Jun 23, 2013 10:08:45 PM

  23. I had to laugh when Dan said that gay men talk to each other about sex. Most anonymous encounters don't involve any talking, Dan.

    Shut up, Dan.

    Posted by: Jason | Jun 23, 2013 4:50:12 PM
    I'm a 42 year old gay man that has never, ever, had an anonymous sexual encounter. You, obviously have. Maybe you shouldn't speak to others motivations either, Jason.

  24. I have never had an anonymous encounter/ sex either. For me it always involves who the other person is. Anything else has always been too sorded for me to indulge. Dan Savage is of course a true bottom feeder, imbibing too much of his advice and you get mercury poisoning.

  25. Guys, please stop feeding the trolls, they want you to comment on them. That said, Jason always misses the point doesn't he!
