A Loaded Question 

Plus, how long must I keep trying before deciding that bottoming is not for me?

Let's say my kink is edging and I edge myself for a few days leading up to a date. Is it my responsibility to tell my potential partner? There are a few variables here that are important to note. This is a first/Tinder date, and it's just a coffee date, BUT she and I have talked about our expectations and there will likely be a physical aspect in whatever potential relationship may ensue. I understand that it's never cool to involve someone in your kink without their consent, but what are the rules here? On one hand, if I don't divulge this information, I could see how my production of an unexpectedly large amount of ejaculate could be upsetting, depending on the circumstances/activity. But on the other hand, at least some amount of come is expected, right? If I randomly had massive loads every single time through no effort of my own, would I be responsible for letting a partner know? Perhaps it would be the polite thing to do. I guess I'd feel comfortable saying, "Hey, by the way, I produce very large loads," if sex was imminent. But when you add the kink factor into the mix, I think something like that should be talked about before sex is "imminent." So what responsibility do I have to divulge this information? And if I do have a responsibility to divulge this, when would be the appropriate time to bring it up? I feel like it could be sexy to be so open about a taboo, given that we've already discussed the desire for a physical aspect to the relationship. But at what point between sex being "not off-limits" and "my parts are going to be interacting with your parts as soon as our clothes are off" is the right moment to disclose my kink?

What Ought One Do?

Let's say ... you blow that load. I can't imagine your new friend will be shocked. Blowing loads, after all, is what men do with their penises, WOOD, and most people who are attracted to men are aware of this fact. And anyone who's slept with two or more men is aware that some men blow bigger loads than others. Volume varies. Volumes vary between men, and the volume of an individual man's loads can vary naturally or as the direct result of an intentional intervention, like edging.

Backing up for a second: Edging entails bringing yourself or being brought to the edge of coming over and over again. It's about getting yourself or someone else as close as you can to the "point of orgasmic inevitability" without going over. Draw out the buildup to a single orgasm for hours or days — by edging yourself or being edged by someone else — and the resulting load will be larger than normal for the edged individual. But even so, an edged dude's load can still be smaller than the load of a guy who just naturally produces more ejaculate.

And in answer to your question, WOOD, no, I don't think there's a pressing need to disclose your kink to your date. If it gets sexual, she's going to expect you to produce ejaculate at some point. And even if the load you wind up blowing is enormous, you're not going to drown her or wash out her IUD.

Frankly, WOOD, your letter reads like you got baked out of your mind and sat up half the night trying to come up with an excuse to tell this woman about your not-that-kinky kink and "I should tell her as a courtesy" was the best you could do.

If you want to tell her, go ahead and tell her. But since there's no need to tell her that you sometimes like to stroke for a bit without climaxing, there's a strong chance she'll react negatively to your "courtesy" disclosure. Even if she's made it clear there could be "a physical aspect in whatever potential relationship may ensue" — even if that's not just dickful thinking on your part — she's going to be scrutinizing you for signs that you aren't someone she wants to get naked with. She'll be looking for red flags at your first face-to-face meeting, and if you come across like a creep with piss-poor judgment — and a needless conversation about how much ejaculate you produce and why you produce so much ejaculate will definitely come across as creepy — then she may decide not to ensue with you.

I'm a queer man who usually tops with men. A bad first try at receiving anal at age 16 led me to not bottom for years. After seeing the looks of delight on my partners' faces, I decided to give bottoming another go. I followed your advice — lots of lube and relaxation, a little weed — and tried lots of different positions and dick sizes. But no matter what, I never seem to get past the pain and into the pleasure zone. I enjoy being fingered and using a prostate massager, so I know my prostate is in there. How many times should I try bottoming before I decide it's not for me?

Twentysomething Into Glutes Had To Have Orgasms Lustily Elsewhere

There's no set number of times a queer person has to try bottoming before deciding it's not for them, TIGHTHOLE. A person — queer or straight — can make that call without ever having tried bottoming. An exclusive top who isn't afraid of his own hole, i.e., a queer guy who enjoys being fingered and using a prostate massager, doesn't have a hang-up; he's just a guy who knows what works for his hole and what doesn't. And that's more than most people know.
