My preferred form of sexual relationship is the friend-with-benefits situation.
I go on Grindr looking to make friends who could, at least potentially, be sex partners, but I like to do the friend thing before the sex.
Savage believes that it is a mistake to treat monogamy (rather than honesty or joy or humor) as the main indicator of a successful marriage.
HIV was one aspect to this person, but he was also so much more, comprised of all the wonderful web of complexity that makes each of us unique.
GGG stands for 'good, giving, and game.’ Think 'good in bed,' 'giving of equal time and equal pleasure,' and 'game for anything—within reason.'" We know from previous research that people who are more motivated to respond to their partner’s needs (high in communal strength) report higher relationship satisfaction and feel more intrinsic joy after making a sacrifice for their partner.
But, do the benefits of being ‘giving’ and ‘game’ translate to the sexual domain of a relationship as Dan Savage would suggest?
The best way to do that is by creating a profile — on Grindr or elsewhere — that clearly describes what you want and what you're up for.
Because good partners (sexual or otherwise) communicate their wants clearly.
