"Dan Savage's Wild Kingdom": Lions and Tigers and Asexual Amoebas, Oh My.
|This week in Savage Love: Amoeba sex|
Do you feel like the sexual problems that are typically tackled in the syndicated column don't apply to anyone other than the weirdos who write-in?
Does it seem like Dan Savage has a formulaic response that involves chastising any person (or society as a whole) for being squeamish, turned off, or appalled by some bizarre sex act?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you are guaranteed to get a laugh out of "Dan Savage's Wild Kingdom."
A parody from the high-brow humorists at McSweeny's, it replaces Savage's typical reader-generated sex questions with queries from a preying mantis, an amoeba and a "female bluehead wrasse fish." Whatever that is.
Here's one of the questions from the send-up:
CALLER: Dan, I am just at my wits' end, and I hope you can help. I'm a 35-day old male in a polyamorous dom/sub relationship... my problem is that I have to share my partner with approximately 40,000 others, and I just don't know if I'm cut out for this arrangement. I mean, I love Her--she's my queen, and I live to serve her, whether it's feeding the young, carrying waste products to the surface, digging tunnels, or defending the colony from threats like The Giant Beak or Fat-Man-in-Speedo-with-Can-of-Raid. But sometimes I think she doesn't even know I exist--and to make things worse I don't even have sex organs. What can I do to save this relationship, Dan?Click here for the response.
