How To Make Yourself More Approachable to Men

As society progresses, it seems that meeting men in bars is becoming more and more rare, and while many of us are too shy to approach a guy, when we don’t get approached often either, it can leave us at a frustrating impasse. I’d often go out with friends, and while they’d get approached a few times in a night, I’d always be the one on the 176 snuggling up to my Burger King on the way home. I wanted a quarter...

One Night Stand? Girl, I’m Busy! It’s all about the ‘Half-Night Stand’ Don’t you know

We’ve all been in that situation where we’ve banged a guy and then scurried out before he woke up. We always known it as a ‘Dick & Dash’, like a dine and dash, but you can’t get arrested. And according to the Huffington Post, the Millenials are totally embracing it! Wait, you’ve still been staying the FULL night? We mostly thought it just meant that he wasn’t good looking enough to wake up...

Straight Guys! Why have a ‘Bro-Job’ when you can have ‘Dude Sex’?

Last year, Dr. Jane Ward discussed Not Gay: Sex Between Straight White Men, her book and notion that two straight-identifying men can engage in sexual encounters with one another, without surrendering their preferred label. And though, even we must admit we were impressed with the play on words, it seems that ‘dude sex’ doesn’t quite have the same effect. You know what they say, it’s not gay if you claim...

Thought of the Day: If it’s a “Mid-life” Crisis, Why is it Happening NOW?

They call it a mid-life crisis, because it’s supposed to happen in the ‘middle’ of your life. So unless all of me and my mates are gonna die at 50, something’s up. Why are perfectly healthy 25-35 year olds having panic attacks, severe anxiety and emotional breakdowns? Perhaps it’s because we all feel such huge amounts of pressure from not one – but every aspect of our lives? We work really hard because we want to be successful...

Has our Desire for Sex Clouded the Judgement of our own Safety?

In light of the Stephen Port serial Grindr rape and murder case, we question whether our judgement is clouded by the urge for quick sex? You’ll constantly hear gay men bitch about the pitfalls of dating – specifically gay dating – in the 21st century. But that won’t change the fact that two minutes later you’ll probably see them scrolling down their feed of guys on Grindr, or Hornet, or Scruff, or Planet...

Thought of the Day: Are Fixer-Upper Boyfriends the Future?

Anybody that’s ever watched a property show, understands the term ‘fixer-upper’. It’s when somebody buys a house in a bruck-down state that nobody wants, invests time, energy and money to transform it into something immaculate. So, if we can do this with our dream homes, why can’t we do it with our dream man? We’ve all heard doe-eyed couples drool “he brings out the best in me.” Really, ‘cause we all think you’re a cunt now, though...

Why Insecure Men are the Toxic Daters You Should be Wary Of

Insecurities are relationship cancer. Fact. With all the talk of fuckboys, and players, and cheaters, insecure men are frequently overlooked. But what you may not realise, is that a man who’s insecure can manifest into any one of these creatures you beat yourself up for falling for. When we feel insecure, it’s natural to self-sabotage – because when it comes to fight or flight mode, it’s a lot easier for our...

Are Tops from Mars & Bottoms from Venus? The Studies Behind Our Sexual Roles

You know when you’re knee-deep in cocktalk, and hear that little nugget of gossip… “OMG! He’s a TOP?” ‘Cause you just don’t expect it. Well, that’s exactly what ha-happened to Bryan Morlan – writer for Vice – or more precisely, one of his girlfriends, who was shocked to hear that a mutual friend of theirs was a “total top”, (which means he’ll only bottom if...

Irresponsible Beauty Syndrome Identifies Attractive Gay Men Who Struggle with Hoe Management

We’ve all heard the phrase, “With great beauty comes great responsibility”, my good friend Darren adds, “and if you can’t handle that, then you just end up a hoe.” Truth. We all know someone who’s totally stunning, but has a hoop like a calamari ring. Yes, the key adjective… is ‘battered’. As gay men, we understand the need for validation, (unfortunately it’s something that usually comes with the package), and sex offers...

NEWS: New Study Says Hoeing May Make You More Spiritual – AMEN, GIRL!

If you thought all being a hoe brought you was a few orgasms, a couple STIs and shame – you could be wrong… A study conducted by researchers at Duke University, North Carolina has found that the more sex you have, the more spiritual you could be. Sort of. They increased the levels of Oxytocin (a natural hormone that is released in the brain during sex) in a number of middle-aged men. It’s thought that Oxytocin is...

NEWS: In Midst of LGBT Venue Closures, Ku Klub Reminds London: “Soho is Still Alive” (and SEXY)

As a number of LGBT spaces in London fight closure – many of them losing – Ku and their sister basement venue Klub, want to remind the residents of London and sluts of Soho that they still have a place to party until the early hours. With the loss of venues such as Lo-Profile, Shadow Lounge, Madame Jo-Jos, Klub host Nieko says that they have to “stay on their toes” to avoid a similar fate – hence, their...

Thought of the Day: Why You Need to say Bye-Bye to ‘Boomerang Boys’

It’ll be a random afternoon when he tries to slide into your DMs. And it usually will be your DMs – not a text or a phone call – because he knows that he’s not really supposed to be there, so he treads carefully on the slightly thicker, and more casual ice of private social media. Your heart might skip a beat, you’ll probably lose your trail of thought, and perhaps even stop mid-sentence, but at the very...

Study says People you Send Nudes to, Show their Friends; Who Knew?!

A very important study from University of Indiana has found that people you send your dick pics too, also share them with their friends. Erm, duh? Surely you didn’t think that you and friends were the only ones who traded gossip and pics. The outcome was that 23% show them to more than three friends — which, is surprisingly low. Is this really what University students are studying nowadays? We can’t decipher if this...

How Do You Respond To The ‘Boyfriend’ Question?

[Words: Patrick Cash] There’s nothing quite like a straight friend’s wedding to hammer it home that you’re 29 and living with two lesbians and their cats. Seated as the awkward odd one out at a table full of couples, listening to tear-jerking speeches about love, you down your gin and ask the waitress for a refill: “triple, this time, babes.” Then you log into Facebook and find another friend has just given birth to a beautiful baby...

Thought of the Day: Is it Really Better to Have Loved & Lost, than to Never have Loved at all?

It seems that one of the biggest fears of single people is the fear of dying alone – which will further be referred to as ‘dying single’ for accuracy purposes. It’s what spurs us to take desperate measures in order to maintain our appearance, to download dating apps, and even give men second chances when they don’t deserve them – because we don’t wanna be one of those old biddies you see on...
