Adam: we havent seen the rancid guys in a little while but we had the Transplants
guys were in here last night, which is part of the rancid guys.
Adam: Ruthie your 16 whats up
Ruthie: hello I was
over at my friends house and we were helping her move and it was early in the morning and she had just left. And um it was
me and my boyfriends sisters boyfriend and they were off on a family vacation and we were seeing my best friend off to southern
California. And um I was really sad and I had been crying and our whole group is really touchy feeley and we are always hugging
and cuddling and stuff.
Ruthie: well um we were on her bed and me and the other guy
Drew: the sisters
Ruthie: right. We were just laying down on top of the blankets snuggling kinda and being there for each other.
Adam: you were being there for him and he was being there for you
Ruthie: well he was being there for me mostly and
we werent doing anything, we were just snuggling
Adam: then what
Ruthie: and he had been having trouble with his girlfriend
and stuff like that. And he was rubbing my back and he was like Im not making you feel uncomfortable am i. And I was like
no Im fine
Drew: you should have been uncomfortable at that point.
Adam: yeah its always weird when youre a guy and
youre trying to comfort but your trying to do some finger banging too. And youre like, your thinking like your going oh baby
its going to be ok let it all. And your thinking how do I transition from rubbing the back into the
Benji: I know kids
wont believe this but when your 16 youre not really trying to console anyone that much
Drew: 16-year-old male
when you a 16-year-old guy youre not like. There are caring 16 year olds out there
Adam: youre consoling your penis, Ruthie
how old is this guy?
Benji: that might be worse
Adam: so youre lying in bed and hes
consoling you and then what happens.
Ruthie: well then like he started rubbing my leg and then like
Adam: haha I love
Benji: hahaand you werent feeling uncomfortable
Ruthie: no because were all like that. We all snuggle and we
Benji: me and my brothers are like that too.
Ruthie: like at her house we all really open we change in front of
Adam: well Ruthie you gotta learn some boundaries
Ruthie: yes I know.
Adam: what did the guy do I want
to know what happened
Benji: so long story short what happened
Ruthie: so I was in like sleep pants because it was
really early in the morning and he was starting to pull me down and I was like omg Im feeling really unconformable now and
I said that and he was like omg Im so sorry. And I was like dont worry about it. Hes like listen Ive just been really upset
about my girlfriend
Benji: hes backtracking again
Drew: at least he stopped
Adam: hes really upset about his girlfriend
Ruthie: no no no shes not moving out its one of our friends.
Adam: well ok whatever your friend is moving
Benji: he basically tried to put the moves on you and you stopped him which is good.
Adam: so now what
so I mean but I know hes not interested in me and Im not interested in him because weve both been in relationships for more
than a year.
Adam: you connection is bad thats why its frustrating. But look who cares. Hes not interested in you, your
not interested in him fine.
Drew: well he is interested in you
Adam: well hes interested in whoever is lying next
Ruthie: well I kinda want to confront him on it and say you know I want to talk to him about it make sure he is
ok with all of it
Adam: no, no. do you have any interest in him at all
Adam: then dont cause trouble,
he made a move you shot him down now you do the dignified thing and pretend it never happened.
Drew: but dont be alone
with this guy, and lean not to be alone someone you dont really know
Adam: I love the backtrack move too. Oh yeah Im really
feeling bummed out you know I want to console you. And he tried to finger bang and its like what are you doing. And hes like
I dont know Im so upset this is the way I cope. A lot of people go to church other people rub rosary beads or read a bible,
or sit alone. I like to finger bang.
Drew: he may have miss-read the cues
Adam: hes just moving ahead and Im not sure.
Ruthie had a screwed up little girl voice, which is trouble. And im getting the feeling that she liked the attention
I just get immature
Adam: and weird chaos too and listen girls when you go oh we get undressed in front of each other
and everyone is cool and we are like family
Drew: no, no that is bad news
Benji: were all just really comfortable
with each other man
Drew: men are like lion waiting in the brush, thats what they are doing they are watching the zebra
and the elk go by and if they slow down and show themselves there is going to be a predator.
Adam: thats right. Paul?
Paul your 15
Paul: no Im 26
Adam: thats only 6 only 11 years off of what I said you were
Benji: not bad not bad
Adam: whats up
Paul: yeah a couple of weeks ago my friends thew me a bachelor party
Benji: getting married
well um yeah Ive been with her for like 7 years. We use to be married.
Benji: use to be married
we were married and divorced and then got back together again.
Benji: sounds good
Drew: at 26?
Adam: so you friends
thew you a bachelor party. What happed.
Paul: so they got like 2 strippers and they are doing their stripper show, I have
Benji: you accidentally killed one of them. No sorry
Paul: so they are doing their little stripper show and
they are like rubbing oil on themselves and then on like the guys
Benji: tell me more
Paul: when they were rubbing oil on this one
friend of mine um I started getting kinda turned on and like it worried me
Benji: dramatic sigh
Drew: why did you
break up with your wife in the first place?
Paul: just problems I was in the army so I got deployed a lot
deployed somewhere far away
Drew: and she knew you were in the army when she married you
Adam: oh good he dropped
off something wrong with his phone line
Drew: I dont know what to make of all that
Adam: Paul had a bogus idea
well there is a definite bogus quality about it
Benji: basically he had a though about a guy and was worried
it was weird enough that we needed more information
Adam: what if you your getting married and you get a boner over a
stripper rubbing oil over one of your buddies.
Drew: the stripper is what his focus might have been on
but he wouldnt have called if that was it. We can all watch a porn movie and kinda ignore the guy that doesnt make us gay
Benji: I mean there are guys in porn
Drew: so what if that is happening. There might be some weird chaos in the relationship
he might be gay.
Benji: all right Paul youre gay.
Adam: thank you, ahh..im not calling anyone Ganga
I want to talk to benji
Adam: all right here is he
Ganga: hi benji
Benji: hey whats up?
Ganga: ok um I say
you in San Diego last Friday really good show. I also saw you on the warped tour when you came here. Yeah
Benji: and you
have a sex question for me
Ganga: no, I wanted to ask what you like to do in your spare time and if you have a girlfriend.
Benji: um. I dont have a girlfriend. And in my spare time I like to go on loveline and um
Adam: and he likes to get
tattoos and hang out by the pool
Benji: yeahand watch my buddies get hot oil..no that was a joke
Adam: thats a decent
question, is all your spare time if youre not making music and your not on tour do you just want to do nothing
sometimes. I mean we tour a lot we spent the last 3 years on tour. 11 months a year on the road. And that one-month that we
werent on the road wasnt a sold month. It was like a week here. 4 days here. 3 days here. Sometimes you do nothing absolutely
and sometimes you know you do music
Adam: but you dont have any hobbies
Benji: I like to ride my dirt bikes.
hey benji can I ask you um are you kinda shy.
Benji: I am sometimes
Ganga: because I noticed on stage your brother
Joel is always jumping around looking at every corner of the stage. And you kinda just stay in one spot and dont look at anybody.
Benji: some people would call that lazy, but I like to call it shy
Bill b: way to go B
Benji: no Joel is actually more shy when we are out like and about
in public, Joel likes his life to be very private. I dont care. Im shy sometimes. It all depends on my mood.
you going to see them at 91x?
Ganga: you guys are going to be there.
its a little surprise, no we are not going to be there.
Drew: your confusing the Transplants schedule with Good Charlottes
Benji: Ill be their guest rapper on the Transplants though.
Adam: good charlotte is going to be at the Weenie Roast
and live 105
Ganga: thank you so much, and Benji I have a huge crush on you I love you
Benji: why thank you.
good times babydoll
Benji: use condoms, always the right thing to say. Any time. Listening
to loveline Ive realized that if you dont know what to say you just say use condoms
Adam: yes, use condoms and dont get
Benji: do you know that they card for condoms in some states?
Adam: what is this 16 or 18?
Benji: Im not sure but I think Its 18
Adam: because isnt there
Benji: isnt that like defeating the purpose
Adam: it seems that it would be.
Drew: but its an improvement from how it was when we were young which was it
was up behind the medication, which is where the pharmacist was.
Benji: and you have to go uh I need some of those
Mr. Smith, hed have to come down and talk to the pharmacist
Adam: Well drew would have to go down to Korea town to but
his because his father is a doctor and his father knew all the pharmacists. So if he went any place in town it would be like
uh yeah the Piksey boy came in here and bought a truckload of condoms. So hed have to head down to. Where did you go China
Adam: and you know all us round eyes look the same to them. They wouldnt know and difference. But
youd have to go back to the back. And theyd have to fish them out right
Drew: yeah oh yeah youd line up with the blue
Adam: I had to make my own condoms. When I was in high school
Drew: really what did you make them out of catgut?
Adam: no I would use sometimes catgut, other times
Benji: water balloons
Adam: yeah water balloons, crown royal
sacks. Whatever I had
Benji: you ever seen a water balloon?
Adam: what are you doing with all those condoms you sheltered
Drew: I dunno Im horny
Adam: thats what it would sound like
Adam: is that her name
Benji: two interesting names in a row Ganga and Serada
Adam: your 16, whats up
Serada: like um I dont get
a lot of sleep and um I sleep like at least 3 or 4 hours but when I wake up I get bruises either on my leg or like on my back
and I dont even know why
Drew: how long has that been going on?
Serada: for like um 5 months
Adam: so you like
wake up with bruises
Serada: yeah and I dont even know how it happened
Drew: have you been tested to see if its something
like leukemia that causes it
Serada: um no I havent
Drew: so the first thing is to make sure its not a medical problem,
and blood disorders of various types can cause spontaneous bruising. And its a pretty easy thing to have evaluated. If thats
all negative the is something called the "painful bruising syndrome" and I have no heard of, seen, read about except one case
I saw when I was in training and they think people do it to themselves in their sleep. Some sort of trauma thing
well if youre not sleeping well maybe your having disturbed sleep, you roll around and have a nightmare and stuff.
is your life stress full
Serada: yeah I guess, like it can be I try to avoid stuff
Benji: what do you do. Do you go
Serada: school and then like work but thats it
Adam: why do you think you only sleep 3 hours a night
well I mean
Adam: and hold on a second people go oh I only sleep four hours a night. But if you really break it down.
You go to bed at three and wake up at 6 everyday. I always think to myself. If in fact that is true could you keep that up
for a week or two before collapsing
Benji: I have definitely gone through periods where I sleep for 3-4 hours a night
for months at a time
Adam: really? And no napping during the day
Benji: where like
on tour. Straight up running on no sleep. But then it catches up to you like every two weeks or something. Youll have a couple
of days, which you just feel miserable and its a horrible cycle
Adam: I couldnt imagine. I could pull it off for like
a day or two but I couldnt do it for like a season
Benji: I tell you guys a little secret about Joel. When Joel when hes
got a lot of stress in his life he sleep walks. And talks in his sleep. When we graduated from high school we moved out and
uh we just recently this year we dont live together we have separate places. But we always lived together we were always roommates.
And I freaks me out so much every time because hes like looking right at you talking non-sense. And youre just like
and his eyes are wide open
Drew: they are extra wide open
Benji: or hell like pick something up and carry it around
talking its weird
Drew: Ive always tried to figure out why it is so disturbing to see someone like that
weird because they are not conscious
Adam: Its because their body animated but their brain is like dead
they are usually animated in like a weird way, not a normal fluid body movement
Adam: yeah it is very disturbing for someone
not sleepwalking when someone does it. And I wish these people would think more about our feelings
Drew: so you need a
medical evaluation. No trauma history
Adam: so what is the reason you think you dont sleep well
Serada: well Im BI-polar
Drew: do you take any medication for it
Serada: no my parents wont let me
Adam: why wont your parents let you
be on medication?
Serada: they just dont they think medication is not necessary
Adam: are they religious
Adam: what are they
Benji: what religion is that
Serada: well my dad is Episcopalian and my mom is catholic
Benji: and those religions arent allowed to use medication
Serada: well not they just think that youre a weird
depressing person and you dont need it
Drew: what that is. Is your parents dont want to have to deal with the fact that
they have a child that has a problem that makes them feel bad and that is why kids have problems because parents dont allow
them to develop and be a separate person.
Adam: do you ever say to your dad your ePISScopalian. Youre an ePISScopalian
and laugh in his face. Hell let you take medicine after you say that a few times then laugh like a hyena
Serada: no I
dont get along with my dad we are completely opposite. He used to drink a lot.
Drew: so you were traumatized
Drew: did anything happen to you during his tirades.
Serada: well like both of my parents smoke pot. And
my cousin moved in when I was in 8th grade. And she was like do you want to try it so I was like ok. So when I was a freshman
I was smoking all the time. And my dad found out he got really upset and I was like I know you do it and so whats he difference
and he goes your
Benji: its because youre not Episcopalian
Serada: I was like youre an adult and I am a child whats
the difference. I was like I get that but you know you do it and its ok for you to do it and its not ok for me to do it and
its ok for you to do it. And its illegal no matter what
Benji: sounds like there is deeper issues
Drew: every teenager
thinks like that
Adam: are they very religious when they are drinking boos and smoking weed too
ha well good times
Benji: yes Rasta
Adam: and drew speaking of religion as I predicted a few days ago. Things have
smoothed over in the Middle East. They put together a good 6 days and now they are blowing everyone up again. I have a plan
to solve all this. Move the Jews up to Baja. They got a lot of land out there
Drew: ha its a great piece of land. Looks
just like Israel.
Adam: just 1500 miles of nothing
Drew: they brought the London Bridge to Arizona, they can bring
Bethlehem to Baja.
Adam: I got a couple of plans first we move the Jews to Baja early Sunday morning. Late Saturday night.
The Mexicans have been drinking they are hung over. They sleep in on Sunday. Im talking 4 or 5 in the morning on Sunday thats
when the Jews move in so the Mexicans dont even know plus with the dark skin and the beards a lot of them arent gonna even
know whats going on.
Benji: and the sideburns. Its early
Adam: yeah the sideburns chaos. Now there is one potential
problem. As far as headwear goes, never have two cultures been further apart.
Drew: we have to make the black sombrero
Adam: yeah but the problem is the yarmulke (yammica) is the worlds smallest hat and the sombrero is the worlds largest
hat. So there is going to be problems but we can get together on that. See Jerusalem is Holy Land because of the soil. Im
saying just bring the topsoil. If you tunnel down youre in the center of the earth the magma. So just scrape off the top six
inches of Jerusalem and drag it out to just past TJ. The Jews set up beautiful ocean front property. They could use some attorneys
over their some captains of industry. They both have a love of horrible desserts, which is Flan and Pavlova. Pavlova is basically
sand with honey. And Flan if yogurt with honey dipped on it. They both hate desserts and love the ocean and the desert.
its both kosher with me
Adam: its going to work. Or do you think they should stay where they are surrounded by people
who hate everybody and love to kill and just have a few more hundred bus bombs go off until everyone is dead. And I dont understand
by the way. That people are like we send our kids to Jerusalem to study. Its like really, really your sending your kids out
Benji: we sent them to have a near death experience
Drew: maybe not near
Adam: how freaked out would
you be if you are living in Israel and you are climbing on a bus or sitting in a café in a crowded part of town
I wouldnt do it
Adam: can you imagine being a dentist couple from Encino (CA) like yeah we have a nineteen-year-old daughter
were sending her out for a couple of years to study abroad. So anyway this is never going to work. Here is the reason why.
Too many people wanting to go at it. Its not the entire population its like one percent. You take one out of every 100 people
who want to blow something up you got a bad scene
Benji: yeah its never gonna work
Adam: so move the Jews to Baja.
Thank you very much. I would say to move the Palestinians to Baja. But they are going to start blowing the Mexicans up. So
we move the Jews over to Baja and leave the Palestinians and when they get board they will just blow each other up.
Adam: Bill Belamy has left and Benji is now here.
right not as tall as him.
Adam: but funnier better looking and blacker.
Benji: yes thank you
Bill: way to go B
Adam: I envy being black, you dont need to remember anyones name just their first initial. Number two, I watch these black
comedians like night at the Apollo and they just come out are like where are you all from. Philadelphia, PHILLY in the HIzhouse.
And its like wow. And Im like man I want to do that
Benji: you know what I think its easier for them to like to be funnier.
White people are really easy to make fun of. Most of us are pretty hokey like "be careful you dont want to hurt yourself"
Adam: I know thank god as white people we have fat people, because that is the only people we can make fun of. You know
as white people we are the black peoples fat people. Ever think about that. Its heavy manLee Ann youre 19.
Lee Ann: what
Adam: turn your whatever down, and talk to us. Whats your problem?
Lee Ann: Ive been going out with my boyfriend
for 2-4 months and uh hes not acting as interested as used to and Im worried that he is just telling me to leave.
Benji: ha ha ha
Adam: whats he want from you more
long have you gone out
Lee Ann: like 2-4 months
Drew: and hes losing interest
Lee Ann: yes
Drew: well that happens
Benji: at least its only been 2-4 months
Drew: as least you didnt waste like two years
Lee ann: but yeah we already exchanged I love yous and
everything and I dont want to run this time
Drew: what do you mean you dont want to run
Lee Ann: no I mean before
I want to get hurt I always run. And this time I want to stick it out and I dont know
Benji: where you from Hun
Adam: give us an example of how he is losing interest
Lee Ann: well hes not saying he loves me all the time
anymore like he use to. Hes acting like he wants to spend more time with his friends
Benji: maybe he is comfortable now
Drew: some of that is normal, as the relationship becomes more routine
Benji: I mean when you talk to him. Hes reading
a magazine and he goes great, oh yeah good to hear.
Lee ann: no, not really
Drew: no that is next month
I Ought to hang out with him teach his some of my tricks. Listen Lee Ann are you needy? I mean this is what we are asking.
Is he sliding into his comfort zone that we all get into in relationships where we dont have to come running when the person
comes through the front door
Lee Ann: I understand that but hes being more of a jerk now too.
Drew: give us an example
Lee Ann: hes basically ignoring me when we go out and he spending
time with his friends
Benji: how old is he?
Lee Ann: hes 20
Adam: and when you tell him this what does he say
Lee Ann: he says that he doesnt want to talk about it and just walks off
Drew: well I think its time for the talk.
Which is this thing isnt going right
Benji: it sounds like your needs arent being fulfilled. I think its time to think
about us. A little you and me time ok?
Drew: you and Benji
Lee Ann: all right I can do that
listen heres the deal everybody if the person your with isnt treating you the way you want to be treated realistically then
you can tell them. But if they ignore it you can move on.
Benji: it also depends on how hot he is
Adam: is he hot?
Lee Ann: yes he is
Benji: then you should give him a little more leeway.
Lee Ann: why?
Benji: because its
a natural right if someone is beautiful
Adam: yes why bother being hot
Benji: that was a joke.
Adam: whats this
guy do for a living
Benji: does he work at Wal-Mart
Lee Ann: his what
Lee Ann: no he doesnt
work at Wal-Mart
Adam: wheres he work?
Lee Ann: hes an electrician
Adam: does his dad call him Gordo
Adams electrician calls his son Gordo
Adam: my electrician calls his son Gordo. Its great fat Mexican kid. "hey Gordo
get me the uh" its like Gordo doesnt that just mean fat in Mexican. "Yeah thats what we call him hes fat"
Benji: did you
just say does that mean fat in Mexican
Adam: I mean Spanish
Drew: you said Mexican
Adam: so his dad was a Mexican,
so his dad was an electrician
Benji: your not pregnant are you?
Lee Ann: no no.
Benji: thank heavens
are you cute?
Lee Ann: yes Im very cute
Adam: then you dont have to put up with this.
Benji: have a talk with him and if he doesnt straighten up kick him
in the crotch
Adam: we have a question for Benji, Brawnwin whats up?
Brawnwin: I had a question for Benji.
this is not going to be embarrassing, is it because we are on the radio.
Brawnwin: no its not
me and my aunt saw you in San Diego last Friday, actually the last 4 shows. And she was mostly wondering more than I was what
my bloody valentine was suppose to be about?
Benji: well the lyrics to my bloody valentine were inspired by Edgar Allen
Poes A Tale Tell Heart. A little bit but basically its a fictional song about if you like a girl so much its kind of demented
but you like a girl so much that shes got a boyfriend and your sorta her best friend. Kinda like the call earlier the consoling
like. And basically you killer her boyfriend to be with her and when she is crying over her boyfriend she is crying on your
shoulder and youre the one who killed her boyfriend. And its fictional and my mother doesnt like that song very much. But
its one of my favorites.
Brawnwin: well thats what we were thinking, because she thought it was about that Valentines
Benji: we should start saying its about that though
Brawnwin: um. I like on Sundays show I took like
3 rolls of pictures and none of them came out I was wondering if I could buy any from you guys
Benji: how about next time
we play a show just come take a picture we always hang out. And you can come meet us. Dont buy one off ebay. Kids that all
crap. Dont buy autographed stuff its all fake.
Brawnwin: so if I go up to the guards and be like hey yeah I talked to
Benji and he said I could come backstage. And they say oh yeah right
Benji: just look for us after shows we always come
out and sign autographs.
Brawnwin: really like usually where?
Benji: just youll see back by the barricades.
thank you so much you guys are the best.
Benji: thank you
Adam: so drew what are we doing, are we taking a break.
Adam: who are going to talk to when we get back
Adam: whats Brandons story
he got kicked in the nuts by his girlfriend, they broke up
Adam: what about Amanda over here left for a bisexual chick
Adam: shes 13 and her boyfriend left her for a bisexual.
Benji: unless her boyfriend is
Drew: trouble, troublesome. You want to do it?
Adam: Charles over there is getting married, not as exciting.
Let me just hear what Amanda sounds like. Amanda
Adam: your boyfriend left you for a bisexual chick
yeah I just found out about it today but I havent confronted him about it
Benji: how old his he?
Amanda: hes 13 too
Benji: so you guys are like playing house right? And these are all things you read about right
Amanda: he lives kinda
far so when my friend goes and visits him she sees him all over this other girl and stuff.
Drew: how is she bisexual
how do you know shes bisexual
Benji: how do you know what a bisexual is
Amanda: well we asked her and she said yeah
I have a girlfriend and a boyfriend
Adam: all right hold on a second these sassy girls have to grow up so fast these days
Benji: I have a cousin thats 13 and she better not know what a bisexual is. I didnt know maybe Im a late bloomer but I
didnt really know how sex really worked until I was like 13.
Adam: well I was like 23 and I was like can I put my ding-a-ling
in your foo-foo. I was scratching myself real fast real long and something came out of my ding-a-ling its all sticky. Im 29.
Well take a quick break. Were here with Benji from Good Charlotte.
Adam: welcome to loveline. Im Adam thats Dr. Drew and Benji is here
from Good Charlotte
Benji: and you just missed Adam and Drew arguing over if they knew a farmer or not.
Adam: I was
telling drew. Well Benjis dad was a butcher and then he worked in like the meat packing industry.
Benji: and in the slaughterhouses.
Mostly butcher though.
Adam: is that different than meatpacking
Benji: yeah basically he was the guy who would cut
Adam: really. Cows, pigs, whatever came though there
Benji: yeah shot them
Adam: that was his job.
He was the executioner
Benji: yeah pretty crazy I remember. But that was when I was real young. Later he was just like
a butcher or whatever. And he always smelled like blood. But when I was little I didnt realize it. But even after my dad took
a shower he would smell like blood. It was weird because like a while ago. A couple of years ago I was in a grocery store
in like the meat department and someone was like one of my friends picked up a steak and it was all bloody. And I smelled
it and it just had that reminiscing. Smells can bring back memories. The hobo-power of a
Adam: if people work at a donut
shop they dont want to come home and have a donut. Would you dad want to have a steak?
Adam: I like that. I like that
Benji: which I
became vegetarian later because I love animals
Adam: oh yeah because you want to do the opposite of whatever your parents
say. So I was yelling at drew telling him he knew no one in the meat packing business
Drew: we said the only people we
know are entertainment people
Adam: and aircraft and uh drew said he knew some people over at Farmer John.

I only use that word if I feel strongly about something
Adam: what do you eat. Do you eat like eggs and cheese.

about it. But I started working out and I was like I wanted to you know eat well.
Adam: how do you go on the road when
Benji: its really hard. But you can do it. I have friends that are so like John Feldman is a really good friend
of mine. And he is so strict vegan like he never breaks it. And he goes on the road and like hes amazing about it.

any information you will ever need. Basically try to help facilitate anyone who wants to become vegetarian. I mean you can
get guides of like vegetarian restaurants and stores

you fry them up and you dont know whats going on.

it in person

Amanda: yeah. He lives in La Mesa
La Mesa how far away from you is that?
Amanda: well Im in San Pedro so its not that far
Adam: so he goes to a different
Amanda: uh huh
Adam: when your 13 you cant date a guy that goes to a different school.
Amanda: I mean it
has been working out fine until I found out he was cheating on me.
Benji: Amanda I have a question for you. This is Benji.
You guys havent been fooling around. Just because you know what a bisexual is doesnt mean that you are sexually active or
Amanda: oh no
Benji: good you scared me there for a minute girl
Adam: but when your 13 and a guy goes
to a different school
Benji: but when your 13 its a real boyfriend
Drew: if it were a boyfriend and you see him once
Benji: but in their mind that is what a relationship is.
Adam: all right lets speak to Veronica whos a virgin.
Adam: youre a virgin
Adam: you sound like youre 12
Benji: so whats wrong with that
Veronica: no its not that its
Benji: I respect that
Adam: Id like to
find a nice vegan virgin for myself.
Drew: named veronica
Benji: are you vegan
Veronica: uh no. but I was vegetarian
for a while.
Adam: still got the v in there
Benji: all right so whats the problem?
Veronica: ok well my boyfriend.
Ive been with him for five months and hes not a virgin
Benji: that sucks
Veronica: and I guess Im kinda intimidated
Drew: have you had a boyfriend before
Adam: was that guy a virgin
Veronica: yeah I had
a boyfriend for like 2 years
Adam: how far have you gone with a guy
Veronica: everything but
Adam: and youre intimidated
because you might be having sex with this guy soon and your scared.
Veronica: no when I was 16 I had a sexual assault.
Drew: whoa what was that
Veronica: when I was 16 a guy like a stranger I didnt know he like fingered me with 4 fingers
and I was really shaken up by that
Drew: where was this at a party how did this happen
no I was in San Francisco on a vacation and I was walking around
Drew: and he attacked you and did that. You didnt try
to fight him off.
Veronica: yeah I think I probably would have been raped but uh
Adam: was this just out on the street
Veronica: well I was in a store and like whatever and he like said he needed help. And I was really naive and stupid and
went out with him. it was in like an alley type thing.
Drew: oh god
Adam: the point is. 4 fingers by the way.
sorry that that happened
Adam: yeah me too. And uh ok so your worried that guy your with is going to want sex
do you tell the guy that youre with how you were assaulted
Veronica: yeah and he said that hes cool with it. Im just having
a hard time
Drew: and your worried that because hes not a virgin that hed going to cheat
Veronica: maybe that but
not so much. As far as the fact that he says hes ok with it. But I dont know if he is or not. Im just scared that hes not
Adam: being ok with the virgin part
Benji: well he doesnt really have a choice does he. I mean I know you cant make
him do anything. But that is your choice. You need to take your time you need to be the way you are
Drew: its probably
hard for a guy to be completely clear about it. Hes ok with it now and well see if hes ok with it as time goes on
listen guys are, the concept of the virgin is fine with guys its just remaining a virgin for the two years you are with a
guy is not fine with the guy. We dont mind the virgin part. Guys are just looking for a virgin so they are de-flower the virgin
at some point and they dont want it to go on too long
Drew: and thats what she needs to
Adam: but veronica at age
20 sounded like she was 13 and there are parts missing to that story and there are issues floating around veronica.
good luck veronica
Adam: ok we are going to take ourselves a little break Benji from Good Charlotte is here, well be right
Adam: we are here with Benji from Good Charlotte and we have been
pealing this kid like an onion and there are many layers to the band man.
Benji: guys its been great
good to see you
Bill: way to go B!
Benji: thank you Bill, thank you Bill
Adam: so Benji we will see you on Saturday.
Adam: and the dumb and dumberer guys are going to be here tomorrow night. So well talk to them. And Id
like to thank you
Benji: when Im back in town Ill be here every night
Adam: please and everyone go out and buy a Good
Charlotte CD. Until next time this is Adam Carolla and that is Dr. Drew. What I got to do is pick me up a kitten and bang
your best friend
