Ah, April — the month of fools, taxes and same sex kisses? Well, yes. Apparently, Starbucks, because it’s one of the most “gay-friendly, corporate spots in the world,” will be hosting Same Sex Kiss Day on April 15th this year. Exploiting the LGBT community, Starbucks is encouraging everyone to come out and buy a cup of coffee from them and uh, kiss someone of the same sex, because, like, LGBT people don’t yet have the same rights to file their federal taxes jointly and everyone knows a coffee and a kiss will solve that! Don’t have someone of the same sex to make-out with? No Problem! There’s a Facebook page, of course, where you can “find someone cute in your town.” And no, you don’t get a free cup of coffee is your participate. How would that help Starbucks, I mean, the LGBT community?! Keep reading »
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 attack that being a lesbian was to blame for what was happening to them,” said Vanessa Ludwig, the chief executive of Triangle, a gay rights organization. Additionally, local authorities are not classifying these attacks as hate crimes when the women report them, nor are they taking significant steps in trying to solve these cases or curb them. These crimes are hardly few and far between, especially in a country where incidents of rape against women in general are disturbingly high. Keep reading »
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 out for the red flags that show he should be waving a rainbow one.

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 has become more of an open spectrum than a box. There is a clear upside to straight women making out with another woman without anyone batting an eyelash — we should all be free to do what and who we feel without judgment. However, Details magazine has tried to explain the downside. In the article, “Flirting With Disaster,” men recount how their lesbian fantasies became an obsession that turned into a variety of devastating scenarios. From the guy who pressured his girlfriend to the point that she felt violated, to a guy whose threesome dirty talk made his wife realize she was gay, sometimes taking a chance that seems irresistible can bring about the downfall of a relationship. However, the real problem here is that men often feel like they are responsible for and therefore dominate the desires and sexual expression of both people in a relationship.

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 sensation Nuglah has stated the obvi in an even better techno track! It’s definitely a hot beat to dance out of the closet to. [World of Wonder] Keep reading »
