Cats 101 - Remedial Stream

So, we are getting a cat. I have never owned a cat before, and the last time my partner did was a decade ago when he lived with his parents. I feel like I have a handle on how much this will cost but pretty much nothing else. I need, like, some really basic information. (A book? Is there a cats for dummies?) [more inside]

Saturday, in L.A....?

First time in L.A. - and now that we know there's no way to get tickets to the Rain Room - what two/three things should we not miss doing, this Saturday? Art, market, music, food - the unusual or the unmissable, what could make our tomorrow unforgettably L.A.? [more inside]

Is offering her oral sex "appropriate" for our first time?

We've agreed to meet at my place to proceed with the make-out session we had in our last date. If things run smoothly and more intimacy is achieved, I would like to suggest giving her oral sex, but should it perhaps be wiser to stick to the more basic stuff this first time and leave oral sex for later encounters?

Feels like I'm 15 again

I'm in my early thirties, bisexual/queer and just ended a decade-long relationship with a cisgendered man. I'm starting to date women but haven't had sex with a woman in a decade and didn't have a lot of experience even then. I have always been a visible part of the LGBT community and most people assume I'm a lesbian, which makes people think I have more sexual experience with women than I do. I'm basically nervous about not knowing what to do anymore and being bad in bed. Questions are as follows: Should I disclose this lack of recent experience to the women I'm starting to casually date and have sex with? How can I stop being so nervous, which I know won't help? And: what does real-life lesbian safer sex look like when you're an adult and not a 23 year old with no sense of risk?

First-time PC laptop... halp!

So: junior has saved up to buy his own computer. Since we're, by habit, a Mac family since forever, but he's opting for a PC, I'm finding the thicket of options a little overwhelming. The main issue is to reconcile requirements for gaming, durability (and potential futureablility) and price. (Also: we're in Europe, so some models/options don't seem as readily available as in the US.) The other main piece of information I'm missing is the reliability - in terms of build quality and service - of PC brands. Is there a good place to find some guidance - or is it really a lot easier than it seems? [more inside]

Dog book recommendations : Later life first time dog owners

Recommendations for dog books seem a common request here, but this one is going to be a little bit more specific: I'm after a kind of dog book that involves a person getting a dog for the first time, only in their adult life. Meaning, they didn't grow up with dogs, or didn't have any meaningful experiences with dogs as a child, but as an adult, from a cold start, got a dog. Examples - My Dog Tulip, he gets the first dog of his life, the dog who changes his whole life, in his 50s. Dog Man - The guy who was instrumental in saving the Akita breed from extinction, got his first dog only in his 30s. Counter-examples - Marley & Me, they both had dogs as kids. [more inside]

How can my dog and my brother and his kids get along?

Help a first time international traveler have a good vacation in Belize.

I'd like to get some recommendations on travelling to Belize. I'm planning my first out-of-country trip ever from the US to Belize. I have never travelled outside of the country before and need some pointers on international travel in general and travelling to Belize specifically. I would like to stay on Caye Caulker and visit the Great Blue Hole and a couple of cave systems. I'm perfectly happy lounging by the sea in a hammock with an umbrella drink, but I'd also like to do something fun or exciting I can only do in Belize. [more inside]
