Ask Lola 

The Love Counselor


Dear Lola,

What would you do if you found a stash of girlie magazines under your boyfriend’s bed? That’s what’s happened to me, and the discovery’s driving me crazy. I wouldn’t mind so much if he was looking at photos of other men — there, I can compete. But if it’s females he’s after, I’m out of the picture. We’ve been together for almost a year, and this is the first hint of any heterosexual tendencies in him. I haven’t dared breathe a word. What’s a boy to do?

Worried in Winooski

Dear Worried,

Don’t mention it. No matter how handsome you might be, there’s always going to be some guy out there with something in the hots department you ain’t got. The fact that the bodies in your boyfriend’s magazines don’t come with penises is merely a detail. Fantasy happens, and until these lust objects come off the page and into your honey’s real life, why worry? Be happy.

Love, Lola
