My Computer Made Me Gay

“I see an exciting adventure in your future, a new sexual experience that forever changes you,” she said, tracing the sole of my foot with one soft fingertip. Her husband grinned at me from the bed. I sat half-naked in the overstuffed armchair and trembled with nerves.

This is not how I’d imagined my… / July 5, 2009

Gay Rodeo Clown

I knew that I was a lesbian very early on. As I reached my twenties, it was clear that I was a butch lesbian, with more “male” energy than “female.” But my long hair and curvy body was not supporting my self-image. That had to change. It’s not that I wanted to be a guy… / June 30, 2009

If You Are HIV Positive, You Probably Live Here

Of course, sexual health educators should still teach everyone to protect themselves against HIV/AIDS. But researchers have created an interactive online “HIV/AIDS Atlas,” which shows how only one-fifth of America’s counties make up 80 percent of the cases. It’s sometimes hard to make public health topics “interesting” and “cool,” but a map does a good…

Woman Discovers Fiance Is A Porn Star

Honesty is always the best policy… except when you lead a double life as a porn star. Haylie Hocking thought she knew everything about her fiancé, personal trainer Jason Brake.

Being Gay Is Natural, It Happens In The Animal Kingdom, Too

For all those critics of homosexuality and same-sex marriage who say that being gay is unnatural, get a load of this: scientists have found that homosexual relationships are quite prevalent among reptiles, mammals, amphibians, and even insects.

Marriage License For Two Men In NYC Is Revoked

Same-sex marriage bans just got stupider: two New Yorkers just got their marriage license revoked after city officials say they were snookered into believing the bride was actually a groom.

British Porn Mag For Women Models Only “Feminine” Men

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…

Fairfax High Crowns A Gay Male Prom Queen

Oh, prom…I wore a poufy dress, Princess Leia buns, and goth makeup, all chosen specifically as an act of rebellion against the popular, blond, perfect prom queen, Carla Smith. Well, those days may be over. Sergio Garcia, an 18-year-old senior at Fairfax High School in Los Angeles, may be a guy, but he’s still a…

Today In Terribleness: “Curing” Lesbians With Rape!

How’s this for an evil/nonsensical “trend” — in South Africa, the number of lesbian women who’ve reported being raped to “cure” them of their gayness is on the rise. “What we’re seeing is a spike in the numbers of women coming to us having been raped and who have been told throughout the…

9 Signs He’s Gay

When you’re really attracted to a man, it can be hard to tell if he’s attracted to you — especially if he doesn’t know if he’s gay. Even a sexpert like myself has been blindsided by a boyfriend’s (or two) sexuality. But just like cheaters, there are some tell-tale signs if he’s homosexual. So, look…

Frisky Rant: Is The Male Lesbian Fantasy Messing With Women’s Sexuality?

With the proliferation of straight girl-on-girl action being popularized in the media — from “Girls Gone Wild” and Miley Cyrus’ sleepover kiss, to Katy Perry’s hit “I Kissed A Girl” and super-babe Megan Fox admitting she had a girlfriend — there has been a great change in the way female sexual orientation is perceived. It…

Under Cover Penis Lover

Sometimes you know a friend of yours is gay, but it’s hard to put into words. While Ryan from the “Real World: Brooklyn” tried to help Chet come out by strumming him a song, that awkwardly hilarious ditty didn’t work because Mormon Chet thinks being a metrosexual isn’t a “sin.” Sigh. Luckily, YouTube…
