Freak Nation’s Advice Columnist
Problems abound in the world, and freaks aren’t immune to them. But most advice columnists — whether they deal with sex and love, with etiquette and manners, or just with “problems in general” — are just not ready to handle the kinds of questions we normally face. Try asking Miss Manners about the proper etiquette for a mosh pit, or asking Dear Abby what to do about your slave’s other partner who wants to sleep with you.
Ms. Alternative is ready to help. She’s ready to answer questions on any topic you might need advice on, including: sex and lust; love and relationships; manners and etiquette; full-scale “Ack! My life is collapsing!” situations and even grammar and spelling. (Yes, she’s quite multi-talented.) Use our form to send her a question anonymously, or just send email to advice@freaknation ( (dot) ) see-oh-em

- posted 05/19/2006Where to Send It
When sending wedding invitations to poly families, it helps if they all live together. But what do you do if they’re spread out over two or three houses? And another poly friend of yours is trying to advise you on the internal details of their relationship(s)? It’s enough to confuse even another poly person, but Ms. Alternative makes sense of the confusion.
- posted 03/05/2006The Bride Wore Black Leather
Drew Campbell is better known as the author of the Miss Abernathy series of slave training manuals. In The Bride Wore Black Leather (And He Looked Fabulous!), Campbell turns his talents toward an “etiquette guide for the rest of us”. Ms. Alternative reviews, and finds Campbell’s work up to her exacting standards.
- posted 03/02/2004...And (Whoever) Makes Three
How many people can you politely bring as guests to a friend’s handfasting? And how can you find out if a prospective partner has an STD?
- posted 02/21/2004Trans-What?
In her first advice column on Freak Nation, Ms. Alternative helps sort out the confusion between “transsexual”, “transgender” and “transvestite”, and explains why it’s worth it to be polite to people who aren’t.
