The Gay Fascination With Arm Pits, Straight People and Poppers, Ryan Field Books

The Gay Fascination With Arm Pits

Earlier this week someone on social media posted a joke about a good-looking guy with sexy armpits and all the straight women just cringed. Or they didn’t “get” it. And these straight women were genuinely confused. Even more confused about this than they are about circuit parties. It was very entertaining. I’ve seen this reaction before with gay romance novels whenever a real gay man writes about gay sex and mentions armpits. 

Whether you like it or not, and whether you approve of it or not, a lot of gay men find armpits sexy. I’m sure there are some who don’t, but everyone I know does. In fact, there’s even a scientific term for it. 

Maschalagnia is the term used to define a sexual attraction to armpits. Believe it or not, there are many, many people in the world who like the sniff and even have sex with other people’s armpits.

Here’s more. I’d bet money there are also a lot of women out there who find armpits sexy. 

Straight People and Poppers

I remember the first time I ever entered a gay bar I saw gay men on the dance floor, in the dark, sniffing something in small bottles. They would inhale it deeply, hold their breath, and then exhale. After that, they would throw their arms in the air and continue dancing. It wasn’t long before I discovered they were inhaling poppers. 

This is an old article but it explains poppers and talks about how straight people know nothing about them. I think a lot of that has changed since the article was written, but not totally. 

Poppers consist of assorted alkyl nitrites, mostly isopropyl nitrite and isobutyl nitrite, but in the past, when poppers were first being explored by my homo forefathers, they were mostly amyl nitrite. But no one cares what’s in them, what they do is the important part.

Here’s the link. In short, poppers enhance sex and I think a lot of straight people do them now, too.

“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.”
