I noticed an interesting article over at gayguys.com and thought I'd share it. What you do with this information is up to you, and everyone I've ever met seems to have a different opinion on this subject. Some go, "ick," others go, "yum." If nothing else, there are a few good healthy eating tips most of us could benefit from.
Our semen taste is a major result of what we eat, so if you’re eating Quarter Pounders all day, you better sit down and take some notes. Food alters not only the taste of semen, but the texture and also the volume. Why didn’t they teach this crap in Home-EC class, I wonder…
Here's one of the tips:
Blueberries, cranberries, strawberries, and plums. These have shown to make your semen taste more sugary. So if you want your man to think he’s sucking on a Tootsie Pop, up the acidics!
And there are actually a few more that are interesting...at least I didn't know about it. You can read more here. Unfortunately, I didn't see anything about chocolate, especially Dove Chocolate.
10 Tips from Golden Girls
It's not huge secret the old TV show, The Golden Girls, has become a gay classic cult show. Tony and I watch it, most of our friends watch it, and we once went to a dinner party and met another gay couple who could actually repeat the dialogue from most of the shows verbatim.
Among the 10 tips discussed in the article with which gay men can identify, this one stood out for me more than most of them.
No wonder these four gals bonded into a family unit. Did you ever notice how bland and boring their children are? The Golden Girls taught us that blood ties may be nice, but it is the friends we accept as our family members that provide the true love and support that we really need.
I also think that as gay men grow older, because there is such a huge difference in gay culture and heteronormative culture, a good alternative to assisted living or just living alone would be to create a living situation where a group of gay men (and women) can live together as one family unit. I think that one of the biggest fears about growing older most gay men have is that they'll wind up in one of those straight assisted living places and cut off from everything they've ever known that relates to gay culture.
My favorite scene from The Golden Girls goes like this, paraphrased:
Blanche day-dreaming after a date with a man she likes: "I think we'll buy a small house, with a picket fence, and start a family."
Dorothy, always the voice of reason: "Blanche, you're talking like this is 1948 and the war just ended. These aren't the BEST years of your life, these are the LAST years of your life."
Einstein's Cute Pumps
Albert Einstein is known for many things, especially his quotes. However, up until now I had no idea he was into cute shoes. I can't post the photo here because I'm not sure about whether or not it's free to use (fuck the copyright police!). However, I did find this great web site I highly suggest checking out...especially if you're like me and you think these photo copyright issues bloggers are dealing with nowadays are pure bullshit.
Link to Einstein's cute pumps.
The web site is "Uncyclopedia" at "Wikia." And this is how the license is described for Einstein's beach photo:
This image has been appropriated from wealthy artisans to feed the artistically poor.
In all likelihood, someone might be pissed.
Good for them, since Uncyclopedia claims a fair use policy.
This is how Uncylopedia describes itself:
Uncyclopedia is an encyclopedia full of misinformation and utter lies. You might say it puts the "psych!" in "encyclopedia". It's sort of like Congress or Parliament, but unlike Congress or Parliament, we do have a sense of humor. Nonetheless, this is one of the only factual pages, before everything turns into a puddle of utter confusion and disarray. Savor it. And for the love of Sophia, we know you like disarray, (and confusion) but stop adding confusion to this non-confusing page which leads to confusion, and possibly disarray. Which we wish to stop. Non-non-confusion, that is. Not disarray. Or is it the other way around?
