However much we know about our sexuality and however grounded we may be, it’s good to have someone to ask for advice. One brain good, but two brains very much better. You may not be able to ask your close family and friends for advice in this area, but you can ask Patrick.

“Ask Patrick” is a new regular column on, where Patrick answers your questions about all kinds of BDSM-related personal issues. Take a look at the first column, here
