On Barebacking by Lars Eighner
Back in August of 2010, writer Lars Eighner posted a couple of essays about (gay) bareback sex and (gay) bareback porn that I’d like to share. Thankfully, Eighner released the essays to the public domain, so I’m going to post them whole cloth over the next couple of weeks. The reason Eighner’s essays appeal to […]
Meet Morpheous March 11-13 at The Facility!
Morpheous is a man of mystery. I’ve been curious about him for years, despite him slipping in and out of St. Louis several times, right under my ignorant nose. I FINALLY sniffed him out and nailed him down. I’m proud to say that I’ll be meeting him in the flesh very soon. You can, too, […]
Brent’s Oral Exam: A Cute, Effective Safer Sex PSA
by Johnny Murdoc I’ve been thinking a lot about safer sex, lately, especially when it comes to the gay community.

SEX POSITIVE: A Documentary About the Birth of Safer Sex
I just finished watching Sex Positive, a documentary about Richard Berkowitz, who (along with singer and activist Michael Callen and physician Joseph Sonnabend) is largely responsible for the safer sex movement as we know it. The film is probably most interesting because it’s complex. Berkowitz isn’t portrayed as a flawless hero and his fight […]

Is PIV the New Oral?
by Anna In days of yore, when reproduction and male orgasm were the primary goals of heterosexual sex, ‘the main event’ was the penis moving in and out of the vagina. Indeed, even today what most people mean when they say ‘sex’ is penetration (of a penis, into a vagina). That’s problematic in so many […]
As promised in my review of sexaudia.com, I’m returning to their selection of sexy audio story providers. At Nobilis Erotica, you find a collection of podcasts with stories that lean heavily in the direction of sci-fi and fantasy. But that is where the commonalities stop. The stories present all kinds of scenarios and run the […]
