Cheaters Go For Ugly; More Full Frontal Nudity; October Gay History

 

Cheaters Go For Ugly

This article is all about cheating spouses…or lovers. It’s interesting because the information comes from a survey done by a web site that is geared toward married people looking to cheat on their spouses. And it gets even more interesting when most of the cheaters admit that the people they cheat with are NOT as attractive as their husbands, wives, or partners.

Interestingly, male respondents said they consider their significant others superior to their affair partners in other ways as well. Only 30 percent of men cheated with women younger than their current partners, and only a quarter of the men found their mistresses more interesting or more in shape than their partners.

So why cheat at all? Men admitted that they found their mistresses to be more passionate, better listeners and more caring than their significant others.

The article mentions women in the survey. Oh yes, women cheat, too. This only stands reason. The straight men on that web site are NOT cheating with other straight men.

More Full Frontal Nudity

According to this article, female TV viewers want more full frontal nudity. And there’s a video to prove it.

I hope HBO executives take these ladies’ threats to heart. They’re tired of getting the shaft and instead want to see the shaft. HBO’s female viewers argue for a little more genital equality in a hilarious new clip from College Humor. They have a huge boner to pick with the network. They definitely have my support 😉


Like most articles of this nature I’ve posted about before, this one also mentions that the balance between male full frontal nudity and female full frontal nudity on TV or in films is tipped to one side. And women are not only tired of that, they are now speaking up about it. They even mention the TV show, Hung, on HBO, which is virtually all about a guy with a big dong and no one ever got to see it once. Frankly, I hear these women loudly and clearly. If you’re going to produce a TV show about penis, show penis. And if the guy who is starring in the TV show or film isn’t hung, get one who is.

I don’t like to post photos anymore, but I can link to them.

For a great male full frontal photo, you can go here at Wiki Commons…This guy could star in Hung.

October Gay History

October is Gay History month, and I always find it interesting to read about gay history because there’s so little of it. At least compared to other minorities. When I did research for a gay historical romance with two gay characters on the Titanic, I found virtually nothing dealing with the Edwardian era. And that’s because being gay was kept so hidden. In fact, up until the 1970’s the word gay wasn’t even used in reference to homosexuality.

From my post with the link above:

It’s not going to be too long because there’s not much to add about the sinking of the Titanic we don’t already know, and there’s also not much info out there about being gay at the end of the Edwardian Era because no one with any amount of sense would have admitted to it.

So most gay history is post 1969, and this article mentions three significant events I never knew before.

1973: Dr. Howard Brown, former New York City Health Administrator, made history when he came out of the closet in a speech in front of 600 colleagues. He later became the director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.
