Savage Love Letter of the Day

posted by on October 20 at 17:53 PM

Just read your latest column where you had mentioned that someone sent you several dozen digital photos of he and his wife engaged in “poop play.” Can you forward them to me? Just peaking my morbid curiosity. Thanks!


Yeah, it’s just your morbid curiosity—right.

Regardless, J.P., I didn’t save those photos. Even if I had, I couldn’t and wouldn’t share them with you or anyone else. I don’t take much seriously, kids, but I do keep the confidential bits of the mail I receive at “Savage Love”—real names, email addresses, incriminating photos—confidential.*

* Well, I have been known to let my boyfriend take a look at the occasional photo. Spousal privilege.

I highly doubt you don't have some hidden stash of your favorite letters and HUMP! submissions somewhere in your home. Really, I truly believe you have one.

I don't care about this, um, shit, but will people please stop spelling "pique" as "peak"? Something PIQUES your curiosity, as in piquant, as in, um, spicy.

Bad spellers are into scat? Who knew?

@5: apparently, only if their grammar sucks, too.

" of he and his wife engaged in 'poop play'."

Dan Savage is a ignorant man...Don't read his blog.

You do not keep all real names and email addresses confidential. What about that poor bastard who emailed you an opinion you disagree with (what I cannot recall) and whose email address you then plastered on Savage Love for the world to harass?

Wow, you all are harsh. I'm all for the pique/peak correction--that's educational. I also support correcting the grammar of racist/homophobic/sexist/classist assholes bc if the a-hole is gonna judge someone for the color of his skin, the a-hole should be judged by the content of his grammar. But, being all pissy to the guy who's into scat. Sheesh...

Grant, don't you have some movies to ruin or something?Everybody hates you.

You show them to DJ too. Admit it.

That way you can educate him about how the "real" world works.

I can't wait till he gets older and figures out what a deviant self absorbed prick you are.

But wait! You also said it backfired on him after he sent those to you. What was the payback if you kept his info private?

I guess "spousal privilege" in Dan's household doesn't include the right to be referred to as "husband" or even "spouse" instead of "boyfriend."

boyfriend is so high school

@13, I'm pretty sure Terry can decide for himself what he wants to be called. Quit forcing your labels on other people.

Kiss ass.
