Maintaining a blog requires a lot of time and energy. Sometimes I just don’t have the time to sit down at WordPress and go through the effort of writing a post and illustrating it with an eye-catching image that won’t get me into trouble for copyright infringement.
I am very passionate about the topics I write about. I also think ‘guys like us’ need a voice and presence on the Internet to…

Gay diversity is like the Village People. You can all wear different stupid outfits as long as you sing the same stupid song.

I received a message from a reader this week which reminded me why I spend time, energy and money writing these blogs.
He essentially identified himself as a straight guy who also has sexual feelings for guys. He has no interest in labels, parades or moving to Vermont to marry another dude. No! Pure and simple, he likes cock and all things masculine
His message confirmed my long held suspicion that there is a multitude of men who feel sexually attracted to other guys in varying degrees but are unwilling to take on the baggage of the ‘gay’ or ‘bi’ label.
It’s easy to get the idea you’re alone both in your attraction to other men and strong distaste toward mainstream gay culture. The reality is, you’re not alone. No matter how many gay, feminist extremist bloggers try to demonize masculinity and throw around accusations of “internalized homophobia”, there exists a brotherhood among men that sometimes has sexual undertones. That fraternal bond should never be confused with the gender-bending, camp act that is commonplace in mainstream gaydom.
Guys like us probably far outnumber the gay community, we’re just not attention whores who wear our sexuality on our sleeves.

The post was titled “8 Things Straight People Get Wrong About Gay Men“. Occasionally, there are hints that perhaps just…

One of my favorite blogs is Cypher Avenue. It’s a blog that was called “Discreet City” when I first began reading it. The blog is written by and for gay men of color. Though I am not a gay man of color (as far as I can tell from looking in the mirror), I enjoy reading the blog and share many of the opinions expressed on the site. It is especially refreshing when someone besides me makes the…
