The actor is part of a growing contingent of men in Hollywood who don’t care to publicly label their sexuality. Some take this as a progressive step towards general sexual fluidity and liberation, while others take it as non-queer people attempting to pander to (and profit from) the queer community.
A Florida man claims to have been woken up on Christmas Eve by a home intruder sucking on his toes, according to a police report.
The unnamed 20-year-old man in Bradenton, Florida told police that he was soundly asleep when the sensation of a man sucking his toes snapped him out of his slumber, according to documents obtained by The Smoking Gun. Police responding to reports of a burglary were the first to be told details of the bizarre incident.
Many men find ‘bromances’ more emotionally rewarding than their romantic relationships with women. Researchers has found ‘close male friendship’ among straight men are seen as beneficial. And this is due to decreased homophobia.
Of 30 young straight men questioned, 28 said they would rather discuss important emotional issues with their ‘bromantic’ partner. They said they felt ‘less judged’ by their close male friends than their girlfriends.
The study also found young men ‘openly pronounce love’ to their male friends in a way that would have been socially banned in previous years. Because homophobia is less than an issue, according to the study, they are happier to engage in stronger bromances.
“Did you see Andrew*’s snap?” my friend Noah texted me. Apparently, he had sent it to me and Noah. I swiped it open, expecting it to be similar to Andrew’s previous snaps: a photo of one of his dogs, perhaps, or the comically overwrought title of a poetry volume sold at the bookstore where he works. Instead, I saw Andrew jerking off his erect penis, framed by a promotional filter for one of the Paranormal Activity movies.
“Well?” Noah asked. “What do you think?”
I didn’t quite know how to answer that question. It didn’t make me want to see Andrew’s dick IRL, and it certainly didn’t make me want to see Paranormal Activity 6. Aesthetically, it resembled any other dick pic I had ever received: slightly grainy and poorly lit, as if Calvin Klein had art-directed it back in the 1990s. Yet while most dick pics I had received were either a prelude to or an invitation for sex, that was not the case in this instance: I am straight and married, as was Andrew (though his relationship was open), while Noah is gay and has a boyfriend. In this context, the dick pic was apparently intended less as a come-on than an innocuous greeting, the same way your grandma might send you an eBaum’s World card on Earth Day.
A lot of men have sex with other men but don’t identify as gay or bisexual. A subset of these men who have sex with men, or MSM, live lives that are, in all respects other than their occasional homosexual encounters, quite straight and traditionally masculine — they have wives and families, they embrace various masculine norms, and so on. They are able to, in effect, compartmentalize an aspect of their sex lives in a way that prevents it from blurring into or complicating their more public identities. Sociologists are quite interested in this phenomenon because it can tell us a lot about how humans interpret thorny questions of identity and sexual desire and cultural expectations.
A gay television dating show contestant has gone to the unusual length of checking out the penis of six potential dates before going out with them, face to face.
Dan, who says he is looking for “Mr Right”, appeared on the Channel 4 dating show ‘Naked Attraction’, and was the first gay man to appear on the show, which in its first episode featured a bisexual woman.
In the show, the contestant eliminates potential dates based on only seeing sections of them from the bottom up, before stripping off themselves and standing naked in front of their date.
Presented by Anna Richardson, the girlfriend of Sue Perkins, the host notes that she has been with both men and women.
Richardson notes in the show, as the penises of the men are unveiled, that a study into penis size which found that, out of 5,000 participants, gay men had on average a 1/3 of an inch longer penis than their straight counterparts.
Ladies and gentlemen, there’s a pressing issue we need to tackle.
And it involves the Olympic outfits for the Australian male rowers.
After bemoaning the inequality in the men’s and women’s beach volleyball uniforms just two days ago (i.e., women wearing skimpy outfits, men basically wearing pajamas), we must say, it’s refreshing to see the tables turned somewhat. For a fraction of a second, the focus has shifted from the sporting triumph to the physical “attributes” of the male competitors.
For some countries, the lower half of their rowing suit is a demure, modesty-maintaining black.
Now, we like to think that we’re mature adults. We pay our taxes, hold down full-time jobs and fill out the Census (just kidding! — that’s impossible), but it’s difficult to look at that image without turning into a gutter-minded 15-year-old.
