Whenever someone asks us for sex advice -- or any advice, really -- we tell them, Figure out your stance on pegging. Good Vibrations has three stores in the city: It's going to come up. And then we run, explaining that we have nothing to do with the pictures in the back of this paper and that Dan Savage lives in Seattle, actually. This week, we have a better option: The State of Sex and Dating in S.F. panel discussion. It features OneTaste founder Nicole Daedone, popularizer of orgasmic meditation, teacher of the 15-minute orgasm, and author of Slow Sex: The Art and Craft of the Female Orgasm. Granted, any part of the previous sentence may terrify certain people who just want, you know, dinner, so organizers have also wisely included scribe Sasha Cagen, author of Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics. She seems sweet, and she probably won't be holding up lube. Nor will Grotto co-founder Ethan Watters, who makes this panel discussion an intellectual threesome. He wrote a book about a "never marrieds," who rely on tribes of friends rather than spouses for emotional connection and well-being, right before he got married. The heart wants what the heart wants.
