Tomorrow on Bilerico: "The Slut Who Won't Shut Up""

You will have to go to Bilerico tomorrow for my response to this:

Dear Father T,

Our friend “The Slut” has an annoying habit that we don’t like. At. All. He reads you so we hope he will see the mirror when he reads this.

We are a group of gay men friends in our 30s and 40s. Some of us have boyfriends or partners and some not. “The Slut”, who is single, gets around. A lot. But that is not the problem. The problem is that he has to talk about all the sex he has. In. Detail. He really can’t let it alone. It’s not like we are asking for all this graphic “blow by blow”. Even when we shout “TMI!” and block our ears, he always comes back with more. We don’t know why he does this. We want it to stop. How do we break him of this bad habit?

Friends of “The Slut”


Update: It's up. Get on it.

omg. It is a form of self protection. "The Slut" (what a horrible thing to call a friend) is afraid of intimacy and physical sex is the closest he has come to obtaining it. Talking in detail about sexual escapades is an attempt to convince himself of an actual experience that resembles a meaningful relationship. The more to talk about, the more authentic. He is seeking approval from his friends. The amount of sexual acts and the number of friends he blabbers with about them seem to offer emotional balance. I sincerely hope you recommend counseling FT. I believe this is quite common and think his friends are both caring and a bit prissy. Jeepers. Just tell him to snap out of it. Hit him upside the head, tell him to focus and get a different goal.
