As I said to Gina, it might be a fabulous cosmic joke to entertain the idea that we can Organize Ourselves Into Better Mutants, but I am certainly one of her site's susceptible groupies.
In Bed With Susie Bright 252: Interview with Gina Trapani, Lifehacker Editrix
If you are a fan of Lifehacker, or girl geeks in general, you will be delighted to hear what exactly Gina is doing with her cameraphone (she's dangerous) and how she parries my urgent suggestions for posting vibrator advice on her site.
She says she's not going to let her mom listen to sections of this interview, but I hope she'll relent.
I love to have guests weigh in the letters I receive to the show. This time, we discuss what to advise a lesbian lover from Akron, who writes to say that she can't make her "more experienced" girlfriend come, and it's driving her up the wall. Fallen pride and sheer exasperation are at stake here!
Haven't we all BEEN THERE when it comes to enduring a helpless, hopeless hour of unsuccessful muff-diving? Either side of the predicament is a nightmare. Gina fell off her chair laughing during this part of the question, so I gathered she is also in sympathy. With lesbians, there's the extra agony of the "it coulda been me" sensations.
When you're making love to someone who is supposedly "experienced" and orgasmic, —and yet they are unresponsive to your touch— what's a gal or guy to do? Get kinky enough to make them spill? Lie back and say, 'Well, do me then, darling!" Commit harakiri from the shame of it all?
We decided I needed a PICTURE of the recalcitrant control freak to figure it out... sometimes words aren't enough! Preferable a secret candid taken on a surreptitious cameraphone. We sure had a fun time considering the possibilities.
Don't forget, you can send your confidential questions, feedback about the show, and requests for Susie's brand-spanking new "Girly Cards" to firstname.lastname@example.org, (Episode 252, June 2, 2006)
