A guy named Dylan Jones no one has ever heard of wrote an op-ed piece...because that's what you do now...about all the sex partners he's had, and how he's proud of it, and why he hates slut-shaming. Yes, slut-shaming, again.
Jones estimates his number of paramours falls “somewhere around the four hundred mark. An average of two every week for four years. And that’s not even counting weekends.”
“I’m not remotely insecure about it,” he writes. “I have absolutely no shame.”
He goes on to mention how one guy slut-shamed him ...by using a really bad stereotype to define this guy, which I think negates his point because that is a form of looks-shaming. And he claims that he only gets the slut-shaming thing from gay men.
Frankly, I couldn't care less who, or how many, he screws around with.
You can read the rest here. I'm also not fond of kissing and telling. There's this thing called discretion and good taste. You don't have to tell the world how many men you've been with.

The Gay Adult Theater
This is something I've never done...gone to a gay adult theater. That's before my time. However, I think it's interesting from a cultural POV. And, this is another part of gay culture I hate to see disappear during a time when almost all of gay culture is vanishing.
This time a gay adult theater in San Fransisco called, The Tea Room Theatre, is closing down. For those who don't know what a "tea room" is in gay culture, you can read more about that here. I know a lot of you don't know what that means because I once mentioned "tea dance" in a forum and most people didn't even know what that was. And "tea dance" and "tea room" are not the same thing. Here's more about tea dance. (I get into a lot of these things in my next book, yet to be titled.)
Blame goes to the usual suspects: the internet, hookup apps, and a more open culture that no longer forces queer people to hide. These days, porn is practically something you can find out in the open — especially in San Francisco.
There was a time when porn theaters like these were one of the primary ways that men hooked up. You’d spend a few bucks to slip into a grubby theater, or loiter in a hallway, or watch a live dancer. If theaters weren’t your thing, you could also poke your head into certain bathrooms; or hide in the bushes down by the ocean. Half a century ago, for a lot of men, there simply weren’t any good clean wholesome ways to meet each other — and for some people, that was just fine.
You can read the rest here. I think it's a huge part of gay culture, and once again, it has nothing at all to do with any other aspect of LBTQ. This was predominantly about gay men, only gay men, and gay culture.
The comments are interesting because one gay guy who is 30 left a comment that it is so off base about what these theaters were all about, it's as funny as it is sad. He thinks guys went there to watch movies. He wants to see "events" held at gay adult theaters now. He thinks that's what gay adult theaters need: events.
Bless his little gay soul. Someone should tell him.
Prince Harry's Nipple Tweak
I think everyone can agree that Prince Harry does a lot for good causes, and he inspires a lot of people all over the world. And, he's great with people.
While attending a volleyball event at Britain’s Invictus Games, the Paralympic-style games that Harry himself founded in 2014 in which wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and their associated veterans take part in sports, the young Prince of Wales could just couldn’t resit tweaking the nipple of participant.
You can check that out here, with a video of the incident. Someone in the comments claims this is pretty normal for straight guys to do.
