I’ve been really fortunate to have found a wonderful handful of (gay) boy friends in my 28 years. They’re so supportive and confidence-boosting—at the same time they always keep it real with me. It goes without saying that the jokes and laughter never stop. We do dinner and movies on the regular and on those nights when I feel so possessed, we hit the “scene” and boy-bar hop all over NYC. I’ve had some of the greatest nights of my life with them, but I have to say there are some disadvantages to being the token girl at the boy bar.
After the jump, check out the pros and cons of going to male gay bars with your friends. Keep reading »
I’m not surprised that Andy Cohen is ready for a change of pace from the all the “Real Housewives” cat fights that take place on his couch. During the “RHONJ” season two reunion, he even got caught in the fray when Teresa Giudice took him down in one swift panther-like movement in pursuit of Danielle Staub. Scary! Rumor is that Cohen is developing a “Housewives”-esque reality series for Bravo featuring successful gay men in New York City. Keep reading »
Neil Patrick Harris and his boyfriend David Burtka are pretty much the cutest couple ever. And so we were thrilled to read on Neil’s Twitter page this weekend that they’re gonna be papas. “So, get this: David and I are expecting twins this fall,” he wrote. “We’re super excited/nervous/thrilled.” The two are becoming parents via a surrogate. And since they happen to look, oh, almost exactly the same, here’s hoping that they get two little blue-eyed, dimpled tykes who can also act, sing, and dance like no one’s business. Keep reading »
I am prepared to make a confession for the sake of womankind. I’ve given it a lot of thought (arguably too much) and decided it’s time to come clean for all the girls out there who’ve been down the same road. My message: You are not alone, and you are not to blame.
(deep breath …)
I have fallen for gay guys — repeatedly, hook, line and sinker — and I am not ashamed. Read more … Keep reading »
A new study by evolutionary biologists might help to explain why male homosexuality persists, despite the fact that the genetic component isn’t being passed down. Apparently, it’s because gay men make such awesome uncles. The study looked at the fa’afafine of Samoa, male homosexuals who are considered to be of their own distinct gender and live in union with their extended family. The study found that gay uncles devote themselves to their siblings’ offspring more than straight aunts and uncles. Also, having a gay uncle meant that the child was more likely to “survive, thrive, prosper, and reproduce,” and the child would be more likely to carry this gene indirectly, “keeping the ‘gay gene’ alive.” I’m not exactly sure what to think of this study, but hey, it’s interesting.

For those of us who have a gay boyfriend in our lives, we know how to gross them out in five seconds flat. I have a list of words that I know I can say to mine that will make him squirm and run around the room, screaming like a school girl—vagina, p**sy, c**t, clit, moist. My favorite line of questioning with my gay boyfriend is about the one time in college that he had drunken sex with a girl before he was out. Each time I press him for details he says things like, “I don’t really remember,” or “I only put it in there for a second,” or “Ewwwwwwww!” His experience of straight sex is not unlike Adam Lambert’s recent account in Out magazine. When asked about performing oral sex on a woman, he gave this eloquent description of the experience:
“It was a little gross because I don’t think she was as clean as she could’ve been. It wasn’t the act of it that really turned me off. I don’t really remember. I was 18 and I was drunk.”

So … when Hollywood starlets want to be provocative, they lez out in photoshoots. And apparently, when gay men want to be provocative they tongue female models? Color us confused by this Details cover shoot featuring “American Idol” runner-up, Adam Lambert. Lambert is an out-and-proud gay man, but tells the mag, “…I like kissing women sometimes. Women are pretty. It doesn’t mean I’m necessarily sleeping with them.” Personally, I wouldn’t have minded a shot or two of Glambert frenching his hot boyfriend, but then again, I sometimes like gay dude porn. So what do you think of this racy shoot? Sexy or cheap? Check out one more shot, after the jump. [Details] Keep reading »
“I’ve never even kissed a woman,” Adam said. One of my best friends on the planet, Adam was unequivocally gay—the kind of caricature personality who lisped, wore pink, plucked his eyebrows, flicked his wrists, and decorated his apartment in rainbows. He was my first call when a guy I was dating was being a jerk, the one who was always up for an impromptu shopping mission or who’d dance with me until the wee hours of the night at an ’80s club. Technically, he was everything I’d want in a boyfriend: smart, funny, kind and gorgeous—too gorgeous to be straight, as the saying goes. But since he was gay, I barely noticed.
But as he said those words, our faces were inches apart and we were locked in that trance-like pull of an inevitable kiss. We were at a party, dancing to New Order. And soon our lips locked and we were full-on making out. As I felt his hands squeeze my butt, I backed up and stared at him. “You’re an amazing kisser,” he said, with a wink.
Next thing I knew, we were back at my place. Keep reading »
Here’s a question: Can gay men sexually harass straight women? We’re aware of three instances in which gay men have felt it appropriate to fondle women without their permission and justified their behavior because they’re homosexual. Dwight Eubanks, the “sixth housewife,” was a major player on last week’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but one thing I noticed about him was that he feels up every woman he meets. He grabs and jiggles breasts, runs his hands up and down legs and thighs, and inspects faces. (Watch the video above starting at 4:10 for a taste of his inappropriateness.) Keep reading »
Laaaaaaaaaaaaaa-dies! We’ve got a new porno mag out over in England!
But unfortunately, Filament received a sour review from the Daily Mail, which hissed, “Most of the boys pictured are effeminate and not arousing.”
Indeed, we, too, are flabbergasted with Filament‘s idea of what makes women wet. Apparently it’s skinny boy-men with soft features who either outright look like Rufus Wainwright or look like Rufus groupies. The porn mag’s web site explains Filament relied on both published academic research and their own online research to discover what turns women on and they came up with specifics like “men who are not muscle-bound” and “men with more feminine face shapes.”
No thanks! To each her own, we guess. Keep reading »
