Page views (which, like all bloggers, I monitor with the attention of a cobra watching the rat who has wandered into its lair…yesssssss…refressssssssshhhh) climbed over 50,000 today.
Welcome! I love seeing what search terms people use to find the site. Until I get a chance to write about this topic (I Have Thoughts), I’d like to refer those of you who searched for “consent is sexy” and “how to make sex with someone new not awkward” to Manboobz for today’s awesome sex education post. It’s for both assholes and non-assholes, so everyone should be covered.
I feel like I can help the person searching for a “clingy friend who’s always up my ass” and the one who wants to know “is it awkward to tell a guy he’s cute” (Answer: Yes, it’s a little awkward, but the payoff is high – he might like you back, and you’re also doing a solid for feminism by breaking down the stereotype that men ask and women wait). As for the person who searched for “i need a rich sex girl” and “how 2 make a decent girl dirty”…I don’t know what to tell you. If you’re trying to “send boyfriend’s ex a message,” don’t, and if you “want 2 get over someone,” ask yourself what would Dune protagonist Paul Atreides do?
I have a few really interesting questions in the mailbag – How do you interact with parents who were abusive when you were a child now that they are old and mellow? How do you build community for yourself and find people you can really count on? – that I’ll be writing up in the next few days, but I can always use more.
Thanks for reading and for celebrating this arbitrary milestone with me. Stay awkward.

And to the person that got here by Google searching “https://captainawkward.com/”: Dude, really?
I have Firefox set to open new tabs directly to google.com, and I must admit to accidentally pasting URLs into the search box a couple of times.
WWDPPAD? Paul Atreides would walk without rhythm so he didn’t attract the worm.
I’m pretty sure that “Walk, Walk, Walk Without Rhythm” will be a song in the Dune Musical.
Think about it.
A Dune Musical.
Haha, congrats. You’re so right about us watching our stats like a…cobra. I’m nowhere near the 50000 mark, but I’m trying to focus more on just writing and worrying about getting more views later. (Of course, that doesn’t stop me from checking my stats several times daily!)
I’m glad you started this blog. I’ve been a regular reader of Ann Landers (now Ask Annie) for years, but all it does is make me want to write angry posts on my blog ranting about the various isms and dispensing real advice, heh.
If you come across some terrible Ann Landers (and yes, haaaaaaaaate) columns and want to do a guest-post or send them to me to tear apart, go for it!
The only thing I balk at a little with Manboobz’s post is that it seems to insinuate there’s something wrong or selfish about not performing cunnilingus. While I’m all for equal opportunity orgasms and mutual pleasure, I don’t necessarily think a partner should have to do anything they don’t like, either. As long as the man or woman I’m sleeping with is making the effort in other ways, I’d give them a pass on oral sex if they didn’t enjoy it.
IN OTHER NEWS, congratulations on 50,000 hits! I haven’t posted to my personal blog in awhile, but I’ve been meaning to do so in order to link rec you. I’ll make sure you get on that soon. 🙂
Good point, I don’t think anyone should do things they don’t enjoy in bed. I think Manboobz and brilliant commenter Ozymandians, is speaking to a subset of men who find the vagina disgusting and trying to say “Love it or leave it, people.” Someone who is good enough with their hands can bypass that most times. 🙂
