What I didn’t learn about human sexuality in sex ed class, I learned from reading Savage Love. Dan Savage´s columns prepared me for any weird thing a guy might do, and taught me about warning signs in relationships. He´s been talking people through their problems with threesomes, masturbating parrots, sex toy etiquette, diaper fetishs, and even some more vanilla relationship problems for years. He even successfully started a campaign to name the frothy mixture of semen and fecal matter caused by anal sex after Rick Santorum.
But his and his partner´s It Gets Better Project has gotten him the most mainstream attention. It started as a viral video campaign offering encouragement to gay teenagers and now it´s a book. Tomorrow, they´ll be reading some of the essays at the Tribeca Barnes and Noble. It may be of your few chances to see him outside of a college speaking tour.
