Is Our New Found ‘Independence’ Fuelling the Modern Love Crisis?

‘Independent’ is often seen as a good quality, but could it be blocking the pathway to meeting a significant other? A boy I hooked-up with recently seems to think so: “Like there’s the whole ‘I’m doing it all for me’, ‘as long as I’m happy that’s the main thing’, mentality that is drummed into us.” “But actually, what that mentality does instead is make you...

Dating: Let’s Talk About Sexuality as a Spectrum

I was at the gym this morning when I began feeling mildly sexually aroused. Partly due to the bald guy with the ginger beard, and partly due to the brunette Ariana with the high ponytail and pink thong riding up as she cycled. Considering I’d been gay since I can remember, it was a bit of a surprise. I’d came out as gay at eighteen and have no intention of changing that label, despite picturing shoving it between her tight slender...

Dear Casual Partners, My Sex Life is None of Your Damn Business

I won’t lie and say I was surprised to received a message from a former flame while living stateside. Men are like kids; you take away the toy they previously discarded and suddenly they wanna play with it again. Perhaps he was wondering if we could’ve worked after all, or perhaps he just wanted a homecoming bang, but all I know is that even Casper weren’t that transparent, and he was a fucking ghost. But the conversation took a...

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...
