Gay Sex In the Time of COVID

It’s no secret that everything about life as we’ve always known it has changed since the coronavirus took over the planet. Here’s what it’s doing to gay sex lives.

Many men have changed their habits completely, and they aren’t having sex as often.

“They say, ‘I haven’t had any contact since I saw you last, so there’s no need to do any STD tests,’” said Klausner.

Here’s more. If I were single I would be thinking the same way. And I think it’s because we simply do not know enough about this virus. In any event, it’s an interesting article that covers a few things. 

20 More LGBTQ Sex Myths

There’s always been a lot of false information out there about LGBTQ sex, especially gay sex. This article tackles a few of those myths in a smart, clinical way. 

They’re all pretty good, but here’s one I like. Not all gay men love poppers. 

Or that we all like poppers

Some queer people don’t like to use poppers, or find drugs and sex an unpleasant experience. No problem there if it’s not your thing! It’s important to remember tastes come in all varieties.

You can read it all, here. 

And here’s one more myth from me. Not all gay men want to be called “queer.” If that’s what you want, fine. But pay attention closely: many of us find that word as offensive and insulting as the N word. I think we should all have the right to identify however we choose. I don’t find it offensive if other people want that, but I choose not to be “queer.” 

The Straight Pride Parade: This is one night he’ll never forget! by [Ryan  Field]


“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”

“Best Gay Novel In Years. This story will stay with you and you will feel you know every character and the beauty of their home in the mountains of North Carolina.”

Altered Parts

Altered Parts by [Field, Ryan]

While the book is easily readable, it also addresses emotions stereotypes and relationships. I would have preferred it be 3 times as long and tragically most guys don’t find happy endings as depicted.. but in a short book, it provides food for thought, clarity and insight.. far more and better expressed than 99% of gay fiction . I don’t think it could have been done better.
