Reader Requests

I’ve been in a grumpy mood this week. It’s probably related to the rainy/gray weather because now that the sun is out I’m feeling better. Anyhow, the Gay Gasp will be celebrating it’s year anniversary soon and it occurred to me that, as a reader, you may have questions for me. Are there any topics that you’d like to see me cover? Please comment on this post with any questions, ideas, suggestions etc. You can make them very personal or very general. And don’t worry…I won’t be offended.

Travel Plans

Every October at work we can start to submitt all the days we’d like off for the following year. Getting them in early gives you a better chance of getting what you want. For 2012 I want to try new events and new places. This is the list of possible events to pick and choose from. I also need to plan it out for my budget. Sadley I think I’m going to pass on TBRU in 2012. It’s a great time and I’ve always loved it. However I’ve gone for the past 4 years and I want to put my money toward something different. But I’ll add it to the list as a strong maybe. As for the Top Shelf Cruise…I had big hopes that it would be cheaper because it’s a mostly straight boat. Sadley they prices are higher then I hoped. (I was hoping for about $800- $1000) It will have to stay on the my wish list for now. The rest are all strong possibilies because they can be done on a long weekend.

Because I’m Good Enough, Smart Enough, and Doggone It People Like Me

Do you consider yourself a confident person?

Confidence has never been my strength, but in the last couple years I’ve lost what little I had. If you believe daytime talk shows, there is an epidemic of low self- esteem in this country. They blame advertising and the media for giving us impossible standards to live up to. Personally, my self-esteem (or lack there of) has nothing to do with the media. Seeing a hyper masculine muscle man on the cover of Men’s Fitness has little effect on my psyche. Personal interactions, fear, and prior mistakes have been much more damaging. The other major problem is that I’ve realized I’m a love pessimist. I was sitting on the deck at Rock’s, the local Albany bar, when I saw a cute guy in front of me. I could imagine 100 scenarios of why he wouldn’t like me, yet I struggled to think of one that turned out in my favor. That’s fucked up! Or should I say… my head is fucked up. I need to stop accepting defeat before I try. As Oprah would say, “You get what you expect out of life.” (I apologize for quoting Oprah)
Of all the areas of my life, I’m the most confident in my cloths. You could point and laugh all you wanted but it wouldn’t shake my opinion of my outfit. That’s not saying I know everything about fashion and it’s trends. Far from it. My confidence lies in my choice and opinion. When I pick something out I know I like it and no one can change that. A lot of my friends ask me for fashion advice and I’m happy to help. (I love getting cell phone shots from the dressing room) But if there was one tip I could give everyone, it’s to worry less about fashion rules or what you should or shouldn’t do and worry more about your own opinion. The only thing that really matters is if you like it and you think you look good. Fuck everyone else!
If I can say ‘fuck everyone else’ about my outfit, why can’t I say that about my love life. Now I need to take the confidence I have in my cloths and bring it to all the other parts of my life. I’m not sure how to do that exactly… but I’ll give it a shot. I sometime think it’s easier to start acting the part and eventually your mind will catch up.
What are you most confident about? A certain talent, physical feature, career success, charm, conversation skills?
P.S.
If I ever found a genie in a bottle one of my wishes would be to spend a week as a ‘beautiful’ person. We all know those friends who are hot and their looks get them through life. You can lecture me all you want about personality and blah blah blah. But you have to admit there are people who don’t need confidence. I would love to know what that’s like.
P.P.S
There is a great Sex and the City episode about this from season 3: Attach of the Five Foot 10 Woman. It talks about how we can see all the best qualities in our friends yet we only see the negative in ourselves. It’s worth a watch.

What’s on TV?


My creativity has been dead this past week. I’ve been racking my brain trying to think of new topics… but I keep coming up empty. The only thing I can think of is television. With a new season starting, there are a bunch of new and returning programs.

A List NY– The A List was never an award winner, but it always had a bitchy charm. This season the charm is gone. Austin, the charming southern bad boy is up to his usual antics. Thank god because without him there wouldn’t be a show. All of the cast members spend the whole episode moaning and growning about his latest adventure. Frankly it gotten quite boring. Tip: follow the cast on Twitter and get the up to date dish. Also, Nyasha needs to go!

America’s Next Top Model (All Stars)- Tyra is finally doing an All Star show. She has invited back some of the more memorable cast members from years past. In reality there are a handful of favorites amongst a group of girls that can best be described as “Oh yeah, I think I remember her..?” If you’re a fan of the show this season won’t disappoint.

Free Agents– Unwatchable

Happy Endings– The new season hasn’t started yet but I’m very excited! Tune in September 29th on ABC.


Real Housewives of NY– In case you haven’t heard… Jill, Kelly, Cindy and Alex are off the show. They are being replaced by Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson, & Aviva Drescher. You can google them to find out more.

Project Runway– Similar to ANTM, Heidi and friends are back with the usual cast and creations. There’s nothing particularly new or ground breaking about this season, but it’s still entertaining. I’ll continue to watch and enjoy it. With that said… Bert has lost his charm and the British Asian needed to go home. (Keep an eye out for the spin off  Project Accessory)

Up All Night– Ever season Christina Applegate is another new show. Why do they keep giving her a second chance? Anyhow, I watched Up All Night because there was nothing else on. It wasn’t horrible. I am surprised to say that I actually liked it. The show reminds me of a modern day Mad About You. (+ a baby)

Analingus

I found a Hi-larious website that pokes fun of the religious right. Visit Christwire.org for more news stories or follow them of Facebook.

As many are aware, the homosexual element in America is uniquely versed in the perverse. For politicians, community leaders and all people of faith, it is important that we inform ourselves about the true face of the world these people inhabit. With this in mind, it should be noted that the report that follows is probably the most unsettling exposé that has ever crossed this reporter’s desk. It is so shocking and painful that it is necessary to state that what lies ahead will haunt even the most stoic adherents of decency.
The purpose of this investigation is to elucidate the precise form of immorality we are inviting into our sacred nation with the approval of the fastest growing radical lifestyle choice we have ever seen. It is not an easy subject but it demands an honest and direct exploration. Now, with great trepidation, we introduce the topic under discussion below: analingus sex.

Anal sex is a common activity in the “gay scene.” “Topping” (penetrating a man’s anus with a penis) and “bottoming” (a man being penetrated by a penis) are both well-known terms in homosexual vernacular. Radical carnal adventurers will go to

great lengths to beautify a cavity meant solely for the disposal of human waste (defecation). Despite this, “power bottoming” is a popular issue among liberals. Gay men will do almost anything to show off an unpleasant area of their bodies with lustful abandon in public, on the internet and even in our homes. Sadly, the fad of analingus sex is even more repulsive.

Analingus refers to the oral copulation of the anal cavity. In frank language, it means one man parts the buttocks of another and inserts his face between the abundant, odoriferous globes before him. By darting the tongue forward rapidly, he hopes to encourage ecstasy in his partner. The bigger the tongue, the greater the reaction. Some take long, lapping licks around the whole buttock region, while others go right for the pinkest center of the hole itself. In hardcore homosexual groups, this is known as “rimming.”

Rimming is an unsettling act and the novice will require copious amounts of saliva to lubricate the profoundly invasive rectal action that ensues. His hole will be spat upon and the spit will then be licked up. At times, a finger will be used to titillate the colon and the recipient will beg for the licker to continue. Other times, spanking and shouting accompany the analingus to give the whole glutinous maximum region the attention so anxiously craved.

For Youths: Rimming can be the gateway to a longtime addiction to sodomistic intercourse. It preps the anus for deeper abuse by another male. Because of their tender years, these boys tend to have little hair on the buttocks or maybe just a wisp of it around the pink entry itself. Parents should be aware that this crude interaction is normally done– after an excessive demand for privacy– in a locked bedroom or on a camping trip late at night.

For Twentysomethings: In this demographic, the analingus becomes a form of foreplay akin to oral copulation during a homosexual encounter. One may find himself pressed against the wall of a dorm room shower or in the darkened basement of an urban disco. The gay licker will enjoy the burgeoning hairiness there. He may spend minutes and maybe much longer pleasuring the fetid crevice of a man he has just met. It’s a crass way of introducing oneself and one’s erotic prowess to say the least!

For Athletes: Cleanliness is not usually necessary. Some lust for the taste of sweat– that salty, damp hole exuding a uniquely human taste of manliness and strength that the rimmer can never get enough of as he licks and licks, grappling the muscled hips of his wily coconspirator, blissfully unconcerned about the others who may share the very same locker room or sauna after a hearty workout.

For Older Males: Being sweat- and excrement-free is not important since the goal here is to push the limits, to engage in the raunchiest festival of prideful sin one can imagine. They will pry open the backside channel and invade with unsuspected dedication during copulation (with the recipient usually enjoying the surprise and attention). They will use their bearded faces to scratch and arouse the rimming spot, grabbing the bottom man’s jeans tightly and leaving him little chance to wrangle free. The interaction will be peppered with expletives and compliments, making the entire production both loud and unnerving.

For Inter-generational Rimming:
A young man confused by same-sex attraction may seek access to the upper confines of the gay elite by offering his anus to an older man who has a taste for pert, youthful buttocks. The confused boy will be bent over the edge of a hot tub or the wooden bench of a private cabin (this is the sort of place you find in the secret sex dungeons of America’s inner cities). He will submit to the colonic invasion of a hairy-faced man, possibly weeping somewhere deep inside for his lost innocence as that forked-tongue laps up what is left of his youth. Little does the young man realize that the analingus he is experiencing is simply a prologue to an imminent round of rapid, excruciating penetration by the adult’s prodigious girth.

Anthropologist Shane Allison has thoroughly explored this lurid trend in a volume entitled, “Nice Butt: Gay Anal Eroticism” which revealed the surprising surge of interest among young and old men alike for rectal fornication. Over the last five years, there has also been an alarming surge of anal-oral stimulation in homosexual videos found all over the internet. Some even employ “rimming” as a keyword for users to locate specific films that highlight this vivid, unceasing performance. On Craigslist and other gay social sites, men will advertise their propensity for this salacious sport, demanding a mate who is committed to fulfilling their shameful needs in long, sweaty sessions that often take place in rented apartments or public parks.

It’s unclear where the analingus trend began, but the rise in illegal immigrants from Mexico and South America neatly overlaps with its growth in American households.

Anal copulation has long been a common element in homosexual relations among Chicanos. As a culture, they fetishize the anus and memorialize it in song. For dominant men, anal penetration is a crude but effective way to claim ownership of a mate. A strong-armed and hairy-chested Latino may grab a weaker, more effeminate Caucasian and transgress him with a spasm of unrelenting consumption. Ultimately, this extreme cross-border violation is little different than International Terrorism. And the sad result is the same– the immutable bondage of one race of man to another.
Beneath this carefully crafted public relations campaign funded by the liberal elite and a powerful cadre of millionaire homosexual activists, the fact remains that the gay lifestyle is abhorrent to the public when truthfully unmasked. As many anthropologists, scientists and religious leaders have testified, this dangerous addiction to perversion goes against all the procreative underpinnings of mankind. It is evident that the analingus fad spreads rebellion, undermines our creative and military strengths and ultimately results in economic troubles the likes of which we are experiencing now under Barack Obama’s tumultuous reign. Tragically, there seems to be little hope this will change as long as “rimming” remains ones of the hottest trends in the homosexual circuit right now
