Male Full Frontals on Reddit; Channing Tatum and Penis Enlargement Pills; The Pope, Again: Quotations Within Quotations

Male Full Frontals on Reddit

According to this article, men are now posting their full frontal nude photos on Reddit in sort of a retaliation to the government for snooping around on social media. This information comes from Edward Snowden in an interview with John Oliver.

“The good news is that there’s no program named the ‘dick pic’ program,” Snowden said. “The bad news… they are still collecting everybody’s information, including your dick pics.”

(Nosy bitches!)

“If you have your email somewhere like Gmail hosted on a server overseas or transferred overseas or anytime it crosses outside the borders of the United States, your junk ends up in the database,” he continued.

It’s kind of scary when you think about it, and makes you long for the good old days of ten years ago when all we had to worry about was using up our weekend minutes.

You can read the rest here. There’s a link to Reddit where over 100 guys have posted their erect penises. But there’s no mention of Snowden showing his erection.

Channing Tatum and Penis Enlargement Pills

I’m sure this is sarcasm.

Channing Tatum spoke about the sequel to Magic Mike and he mentioned the cast was taking penis enlargement pills, in an offhanded way…no pun intended.

No plot. Just a bunch of naked dudes sitting around doing dude stuff. We read all the message boards, and people were like, ‘Less story. Less plot. Just dudes’ things.’ And we listened to that. Basically, we all were taking penis-enlargement pills since the last one, so we weren’t worried about what temperature the room was when we came out to do our dances. That’s what XXL means.

Unfortunately, I think some people in the comments missed the sarcasm. 

You can read it all here.  

The Pope, Again

It’s getting harder and harder to take this Pope seriously when it comes to anything LGBT related. Now they’re saying he’s gone silent on the matter of an openly gay man, Laurent Stefanini, becoming the French Ambassador to the Vatican. 

Stefanini was nominated in early January, and credentials are typically accepted within six weeks. Now some thirteen weeks later, Francis has yet to accept him. The Vatican does not expressly deny credentials, so the silence is being interpreted as a rejection.

The rest is here.

More mixed messages from the Pope.  I might not agree with Mike Huckabee, but at least I know where he stands.

Quotations Within Quotations

I’m usually the first to agree that common usage in fiction is fine as long as you don’t push things too far. The grammar police gets on my nerves all the time. However, there are a few set rules that aren’t there for the grammar police alone. These basic rules of writing a novel (and reading a novel) are there so people don’t get confused.

The other night while scrolling through Facebook I saw a self-published author promoting her new romance novel. It was basically what you would expect, however, as I read a sample from the book I didn’t “get” it at first. And that’s because this author screwed up the quotations within the quotations. In other words, in dialogue when a character is speaking it’s in quotes. That’s a given. But when the character who is speaking quotes something, or someone, you have to show this to the reader. 

Here’s a link that makes it about as simple as it gets. 

Almost all of us have found ourselves confused with double and single quotation marks. When do we use single quotation marks? Where does the punctuation go with single quotation marks? With just a few rules and examples, you will feel surer about your decisions.

Rule: Use single quotation marks inside double quotation marks when you have a quotation within a quotation.

Example: Bobbi told me, “Delia said, ‘This will never work.’ ”

It’s a mistake that can be avoided.

Real Life HEA; Raunchy Naked Men In Seattle; Aging Models Parody Film Scenes

Real Life HEA

For those who don’t know, and I know most don’t, HEA means happily-ever-after in romance publishing circles, gay or straight, historical or modern. Without HEA there’s no point to a book being called a romance. It defines the genre. I’m not talking about romantic drama or romantic comedy. I’m talking about Romance. For me, that’s not up for debate. And that’s partly because in real life we rarely see HEA. In real life we all deal with divorce, cancer, rape, nasty friends and all kinds of other things that gut us daily. I want that HEA in romance. But sometimes, in real life, we do see a happy ending, and in this case it’s for two gay men.

John Smid, who once claimed to have been “cured” of homosexuality and who worked with various “ex-gay” groups, is once again a married man. Only this time, he didn’t marry a woman. He and his partner, Larry McQueen, announced they tied the knot last weekend.

In 1980, Smid left his wife to be with guys, but he had misgivings and tried to go straight again by marrying a second woman and becoming a leading spokesman for conversion therapy. He ran Love In Action, an ex-gay ministry based in Memphis, and sat on the board of Exodus International for 11 years.

Here’s the rest. There’s a fantastic statement made about how other “ex-gays” should look for their own truth, too.

Raunchy Naked Men In Seattle

When people like me here in the east with a strong New York influence think about places like Seattle we often conjure images of  hippie types walking around in a daze wishing everyone peace, love, hope, and change. We think about coffee shops with brick walls where mostly white people read poetry and the best sexual thrill comes in the form of a haiku. We dream about moving there to live more peaceful lives because everyone drives a little silver electric car and no one flips the bird in heavy traffic. But that’s so wrong of us, and here’s just one of many reasons why. They’re evidently having a lot of fun out there and we’re missing it all.

A party called Area 2181 hit the Eagle in Seattle over the weekend, featuring a meat market of ill repute and plenty of cruising. Dark corners, crotch-grinding, and dom/sub gear fogged up the windows, or at least it would have if they weren’t already blacked-out.

Go-gos Matt, Ethan and Ben sampled each other in the cage, while promoter Kirk James roamed the premises wearing as little as possible. Resident DJ Pavone welcomed guest DJ Jens Irish, with a house/acid/techno sound that kept the asses shaking late into the night.

Here’s the link to photos you won’t want to miss on a boring Thursday.

Aging Models Parody Film Scenes

I’m in my early forties and I often find it amusing when younger people have such a strong attitude about youth, especially because they think they’re always going to be young. They actually think 30 is old. Wicked as it may be, I love to think about them when reality finally hits and they realize they’re going to get old and they are eventually going to die. That’s life. That’s not something anyone can escape. You will get old…if you’re lucky. And it’s going to happen sooner than you think. 

This doesn’t always mean you have to embrace getting older…at least not mentally. And no matter how hard you try to fight aging physically, the mental part is always going to be the most important factor. The last thing I ever want to be is one of those old ass-hats who sit around complaining about texting and all that evil technology, and wondering why no one sends Christmas cards through snail mail anymore.

But you do have to accept getting older no matter what. And I think these models in this calendar are doing a wonderful job. In a way, this could be a great HEA, too.This is one of those times it kills me because I can’t share a photo legally here on the blog for copyright reasons.

We’ve been covering a lot of calendars here lately. There’s the hipster anti-hunks, the oddly sexy orthodox priests, sizzling gingers and of course the naked Warwick rowers. But we may have just found our new favorite.

A retirement community in Germany has released a calendar where seniors recreate famous movie scenes. And it is just as adorable as it sounds.

Here are the months that stood out to us, reminding us simultaneously that we love cinema and our grandmothers:
