DEAR EXENE,
Last week, I made the mistake of borrowing my boyfriend's laptop when he wasn't around and found a stash of porn searches that have me worried. It started when I typed in a Google search for the word "astrology" for my horoscope and found ten recent searches for phrases like "ass to mouth," "ass play," "ass slapping" and more. It was gross and alarming to say the least. I'm not proud of it, but after that, I had to check his search history. Turns out the Google search was barely the tip of the iceberg on what it seems he's really into....lots of fetish stuff that seemed way too extreme for a guy that I first met at a Dave Matthews concert. I don't consider myself to be a prude really, but I would also not openly consent to doing things like bondage, spanking and weird penetration with rubber objects. On the outside, my boyfriend--a local attorney-- has never mentioned being unhappy or asked me to change up our sex life in any kind of drastic way. So I don't know if this kind of stuff is strictly fantasy or if he's trying to act on these secret desires, which makes me nervous. But now that I know, I'm not really sure what to do with the information. I don't think I can drop a hint that I'd even be open to trying more hardcore sex because he'd know something was up. But do I really want to be with a guy that would keep these kinds of sexual fetishes from me, or should I be grateful that he's not making me endure them?

Love, Simone

DEAR SIMONE,

Even though your laptop sleuthing has garnered you many clues into the psyche of your boyfriend, you cannot really know what he wants in your relationship if you don't communicate with him. You have some issues with trust and boundaries that need to be addressed. It's a big leap from a boyfriend visiting the "ass bandits" site to "should I be grateful to my boyfriend for not making me endure sexual acts that I find gross and alarming?" My strongest advice possible is to find a licensed therapist, or a psychologist who can help you.

Love, Exene

Well, it is his private stuff and privacy is an important thing for men. You should understand that even if you are his girlfriend, you shouldn't spy on him like that.

"My strongest advice possible is to find a licensed therapist, or a psychologist who can help you." Great advice - don't quit your day job.

right on the money with that advice. women mistakenly believe that men embrace ALL porn, when most men find 99.9999% of it as disgusting as women do. problem is, you have to surf through the garbage to find something that appeals. and this does not preclude being attracted to your wife/gf, nor does it excuse not taking care of your sex life.

the dave matthews concert should have been your first indication.
