Women Tend to Stay Away From Sexually Active Gay Men; The Worst Gay Date Ever; Ryan Field Books

Women Tend to Stay Away From Sexually Active Gay Men

I really don’t like the way this article is titled, so I changed it a little. It’s a study done about men who are sexually active, but these people use the word promiscuity. That’s bothers me. Who decides what’s promiscuous, especially with regard to gay men? 

The study, published in the journal Psychology of Men & Masculinities, found that women are more likely to seek to avoid gay men described as promiscuous compared to gay men who are not described as promiscuous.

There are so many things about this that bother me.

You can read it all, here. The article, however, is not without merit. I think it breaks a lot of the stereotypes we see on TV and in films about gay men, especially with regard to the stereotypes of Will and his Grace.

The Worst Gay Date Ever

The focus of this article is on guys who’ve experienced the fresh hells of bad dating. And they are talking about it online.

 This one is called the “Debbie Downer”

“Went out with a guy, and all he did was talk about himself. I wish it was positive. He just kept bitching about life. It was very depressing.”

Here’s a link to more. 



“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.”

What readers said about “Altered Parts”
“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.
