Dan Savage has been writing his advice column, Savage Love, since the early 1990s for the alternative paper, The Stranger.

Now he also hosts a podcast, "Savage Lovecast," where he answers listener questions. For instance, in a recent episode, he helps a gay male listener confront a "friend with benefits" with a smell issue.

As Savage says, "What are you risking here if you say something and he's offended? You're risking whatever sex you're having with him. but I think you should be the friend in friend with benefits, that part comes first."

Dan Savage will be performing at The Wilbur on Jan. 25 at 7:30 p.m.
