There’s a way to burst through the shame gay men are made to feel about homosexuality.
I was 19 when I first had full-on sex with another man. I was at college, living in dorms, and the experience—aside from the usual horrifying awkwardness and somewhat spontaneity of the occasion—was completely and utterly unremarkable aside from one thing: the guy I slept with identified as straight.
A Mormon man who led a campaign criticizing the church's practice of allowing closed-door, one-on-one interviews of youth by lay leaders that sometimes included sexual questions has been kicked out of the faith following a disciplinary hearing.
Sam Young read a verdict letter for the first time Sunday that had been delivered to him following last week's hearing with local church leaders in Houston.
Young and his supporters say the interviews where youth are asked if they're following the law of chastity led to inappropriate conversations and shaming.
2. "They've forced me into having anal sex several times and said that 'black people can handle the pain better.'"
Some white guys say that they don't like 'dark guys' (this term is awful) because of taste or because their dicks are too big for them. Some friends have hooked up with me thinking only about the chance to see a big dick or because they imagine that black guys are better in bed. They've played with my hair and 'complimented' me on my sexual performance because I'm black. They've also forced me into having anal sex several times and said that 'black people can handle the pain better.' —Rafael Porto, 25 years old.
Ashlee Muhammad, mother to identical twin sons, Jet Pharaoh and Nova Maximus, got a lot more than she bargained for when she shared a sweet video to Instagram of her toddlers giving each other a kiss at daycare drop off. Although the post was intended to simply share an adorable moment between two brothers, things escalated quickly in the comments section when some users deemed the video "inappropriate."
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.
Canadian-led face shape study recently published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior concluded that men with shorter, wider faces “tend to be more sexually motivated … have a stronger sex drive … are more easy-going when it comes to casual sex and would consider being unfaithful to their partners,” compared to those with faces of other dimensions.
How the face shape study worked
The study, led by Steven Arnocky — a professor who specializes in evolutionary psychology, sexual conflict and behavioral ecology at Nipissing University in Canada — happened in two parts.
In the first part, Arnocky’s team asked 145 university undergraduates currently involved in romantic relationships questions about their sex drive and interpersonal behavior. In the second part, his team issued asked 314 students the same questions and additional ones about their sexual orientation, their openness to infidelity and their comfort with casual sex not involving love or commitment.
I really believed he was going to stay. I really believed he was the one.
Our relationship began with a message on a dating app. “Wow! Your photo is way too handsome!” I messaged him. “The handsome meters are breaking! I’m sorry but you’re going to have to take down that pic.”
It was cheesy and sweet, two things I usually didn’t include in my app salutations, sticking with boring hi’s and lackluster hey’s. But this time the cheesiness landed, and he responded that I gave him a beaming smile. He offered to bring me an iced coffee, and he showed up at my doorstep with my favorite coffee shop’s cold brew. He had the key to my heart: single-origin, blended, overpriced caffeine.
We sat in my garden talking about everything from racism to our roots. We both spent some time in Philadelphia, which made me instantly feel connected to him. I could smell the Philly on him, as he seemed laid-back and chill, a quality not many New Yorkers share.
We chatted for almost two hours that first day. In real life he wasn’t as handsome as his photo, but I felt I could still love him just the same.
Ask anyone close to me from my University days, a mere four years ago, and they’ll say I was a sexual deviant.
But, the truth is, almost 100% of my past endeavours were at best unsatisfying and, in the past couple of years, also increasingly fleeting.
It’s not because my encounters were necessarily ‘bad’ that my sex drive has decreased, it’s because I’ve never really understood the craving for sex more than I do for intimacy.
Recently I had fun sex with a guy I’m really attracted to, but more often the experience leaves me with such a sense of ‘betrayal’ in myself after he has zipped up and left that in the most part I don’t enjoy sex.
Accusations of homophobia have resurfaced in southern Italy after a teenage couple were told they could not hug in public at a beach resort in Caserta last Friday.
A 17-year-old and an 18-year-old man were "intimidated" by the life guard at the Lido Arcobaleno beach resort in Caserta, in the Campania region, while they hugged in the pool.
"We were in the pool like everyone else," one of the young men, who was not named in the story, told Repubblica. "While we were in the water, like everyone else present, we also embraced, a spontaneous embrace, but we are two men and it was not appreciated."
The 17-year-old Caserta resident says the lifeguard then approached and asked them to refrain from hugging as "there are children present in the facility." The lifeguard asked the young men to remain more "composed."
