Summer is finally almost here -- officially, at least. Summer solstice, the longest day of the year, is coming up this weekend, and to celebrate we have two very big names from the UK gracing our city with their presence. Rounding out this edition of the Party Blotter is a heavy focus on parties featuring local DJs and a spotlight on Oakland, which has been having something of a techno renaissance lately. See you on the dancefloor!

My boyfriend and I have been talking dirty in bed for two years now. I've never had a problem with it, but lately I'm finding that I don't enjoy it as much, and sometimes I even want to tell him to stop and just have sex without the verbal part. I haven't said anything to him because I don't understand my feelings myself. I'm not sure if my sexual needs are just changing or if I want to decrease the dirty talk because we are getting more serious and I want to feel respected, the way a husband would respect a wife, as opposed to "dirty," the way one casual lover might see another. I know I must have some hang-up going on but I can't put my finger on it and I don't know what to say to my boyfriend.
