I am heterosexual and have a boyfriend. However for a quite a while now, I have been thinking about what it would be like to have sex with another girl. I think about it and daydream about it a lot. Do you think I might be bisexual?

Le Tigre: Dear Jen, please send me a picture of yourself, care of www.letigreworld.com. Besides that, screw labels and have fun. You only have one life.
Love Doc: I think you’re bi-curious. Have you ever told your boyfriend about your daydreams? Depending on the kind of guy he is, he may not feel threatened by your thoughts. In fact, he may even give you a high-five – but that’s beside the point. If you do happen to give the "girl thing" a go, you’ll have a good idea of what side of the fence you’re on.
I’m going to try and steal this girl from her boyfriend. My roommate refers to this as "tearing two people apart," but my feeling is that I would make a far superior boyfriend to whoever she currently has. What do you think about this?
Le Tigre: Dear Daniel, let her know that you are ready and willing to date her, but don’t do anything sneaky and underhanded to destroy the relationship. Also, you are treating this woman as an object and are giving her no agency in this situation. I would be careful, because only SHE can decide who is the better boyfriend.
Love Doc: Hey Daniel, do you have some sort of inside look into this girl’s relationship to make the conclusion that you’re "far superior"? Would that be "far superior" in your mind or "far superior" in her mind? Sounds like you just have the hots for this girl and need a good reason to move in and take her away. You can give it a shot, but remember, it’s about what she wants, not what you think is good for her.
Help! I’m frustrated because my boyfriend always falls asleep after sex, just when I’m starting to have fun. How can I keep him awake long enough for us to both enjoy doin’ the nasty?
Le Tigre: Number one, Joanne, it is not "after" sex if you haven’t finished having fun. Inform him of this problem immediately if you haven’t already. There are a lot of men and women out there who are interested in your pleasure too! Please send a photo of yourself, care of www.letigreworld.com.
Love Doc: How about using a bullhorn?
