Savage Love is a syndicated sex– advice column by Dan Savage. The column appears weekly in several dozen newspapers, mainly free newspapers in the US and Canada, but also newspapers in Europe and Asia. It started in with the first issue of the Seattle weekly newspaper The Stranger. Since October , Savage has also recorded the Savage Lovecast , a weekly podcast version of the column, featuring telephone advice sessions.
In , Savage was living in Madison, Wisconsin , and working as a manager at a local video store that specialized in independent film titles. Since , he has written the column at Eppie Lederer ‘s desk, which he, a “lifelong fan” of her Ann Landers column, bought at auction after the noted advice columnist died. Savage stated in a February interview in The Onion ‘ s A. Club which publishes his column that he began the column with the express purpose of providing mocking advice to heterosexuals, since most straight advice columnists were “clueless” when responding to letters from gay people.

He has also debunked several sexual neologisms for sex acts, including the ” donkey punch “, the ” Dirty Sanchez “, the ” pirate “, and the ” hot Karl “, concluding “they’re all fictions. Savage has also tried to reclaim many offensive words.

We here at OkCupid have an ongoing love affair with Dan Savage, the well-known voice behind Savage Love whose resume includes author, journalist, and — most importantly — activist for the LGBTQ community. Many of us are listeners of his podcasts, and his sometimes polarizing advice is the catalyst behind some lively lunch table discussions. So when I had the opportunity to interview Savage, I was extremely excited — and a bit nervous.
During what turned into more of a conversation, we discussed everything from sex, to dating, to the intrawebs, to Pride. Here are the highlights:. Bernadette Libonate: To warm up, I would love to hear an anecdote from your worst date. Dan Savage: Haha, I remember years ago going on a blind date. I found it really off-putting. Do you agree? DS: We [traditionally] define success as these two people who were together until one or the other or both dies.
Two people are together for 60 years, then one of them dies — successful relationship? BL: Do you think that apps and dating online has allowed people to be colder or less thoughtful about ending relationships? Is ghosting a new phenomenon, or have we just coined the phrase because the frequency is higher?
