"Free the Penis;" Cut Or Uncut Penises and Sensitivity; More On the Importance of Penis Size

“Free The Penis”

I wonder if Emilia Clarke from Game of Thrones has noticed how I’ve been posting about this topic for years, because she’s now stating that instead of more female nudity on TV, we need more male nudity. Actually, I think a lot of people notice it…except Hollywood producers.

“Yes,” Clarke said, adding that she would like to see “equal male nudity and female nudity,” meaning full frontal male nudity as well as the more conventional shots from the rear.

“Free the penis,” she said, sending Conan into peals of laughter.

You can read the rest here.

It’s a rather long one, but she’s not holding back.

Cut Or Uncut Penises and Sensitivity

There’s always been a great deal of controversy over whether a circumcised penis has less sensitivity. And now a new study claims it doesn’t have any less than a penis that is uncircumcised.

 New research has re-ignited the debate after scientists have suggested that circumcision in babies does not reduce penis sensitivity, despite previous claims to the contrary. The new research, reported in The Journal of Urology, studied 62 men between the ages of 18 and 37, of whom 30 were circumcised and 32 were non-circumcised.

Now that sounds like an interesting study.  I really don’t care either way. I think what you do with the penis is more important than than whether it’s cut or uncut.  You can read more about this here.

More On the Importance of Penis Size

This is another one of those articles about how the penis is so important to women, leaving out the concerns of men completely. It really makes me feel sorry for straight men (and women) when I read things like this. I know not all women think this way, but these articles make it appear that way.

But I won’t rant. I think we’ve all reached the point of PC overload lately. At least this one sounds honest…

In the study, women were shown a selection of 53 different CGI models of nude male bodies, and were asked to rate them in attractiveness on a 7-point scale. As expected, the figures with the larger-sized members were rated higher compared to those with, uh less robust genitals, and figures that possessed the holy trinity of substantial height, broad shoulders, and a big penis (a.k.a. Greek God status) were rated the highest. No surprise there.

The rest of the article is here. There are some interesting points about evolution, though.

The Arrangement



Unhung Hero Patrick Moote; Million Moms Freak; Grindr Dating; Hillary Snaps on Gay Issue

Unhung Hero Patrick Moote

Here’s an interview I found with Patrick Moote, the star and creator of the film, Unhung Hero. I reviewed UH here, and thought it was a nice film. The only thing that bothered me was that we saw no male full frontal nudity in a film that was all about a man’s penis.

Seriously. If the film had been about the guy’s small feet wouldn’t they have shown a few shots of his feet? Again, I like the film and I would recommend it to anyone, but it was hard not to get frustrated because Patrick Moote is so adorable.

Even Michael Moore liked the film.

This is from the interview to which I’m linking:

Uncertain what the future holds for Patrick and his smaller size pal, he is hoping this film will spark discussion, not just about dick size but about anything else that we’re uncomfortable with ourselves.

“By me talking about the things that I’m insecure about, I kind of have diffused them as things that could potentially hurt me. Yes, that’s me and if you don’t like it, jog on. I want people to talk about all the things they’re insecure about it. Go down the list and if there are things you can fix then fix them. If there are things you can’t fix, you don’t have the time or energy to put into them. You’ll still be insecure about it but don’t let it dictate your behavior and your personality and the way you interact with the world.”

You can read more here about Unhung Hero, and my review with the link above goes into more detail about this as a “cockumentary.” I also suggest doing a simple google search for photos of Patrick Moote. There are no full frontal shots of his penis, but there are a few photos that are worth viewing.


Million Moms Freak

Sometimes it feels like we’re living back in the I Love Lucy 1950’s where Lucy and Ricky weren’t allowed to be shown sleeping in the same bed thanks to overzealous censors. And they weren’t doing anything but sleeping. Yet they still had to show twin beds so the million mom types wouldn’t freak out the way these new generation million mom gay haters are freaking out now. There’s an ad for Hot Wire featuring gay dads and these moms are going BERserk.

Consumers should be aware of the offensive ad because there are many other travel sites to choose from if parents are warned about this indecent ad,” officials for the right-wing group, which is a division of the American Family Association, write on their website. “The commercial is about a couple going away for their anniversary while the grandparents take care of their kid for the night. But while one partner is dreaming of sleep and says, ‘It’s all about sleep,’ the other partner says disappointedly, ‘Not all about sleep!'”

They don’t think Hot Wire should be discussing what anyone does in bed, especially two men. They are worried about their children seeing this. You know, those little darlings who know more now at 10 years old than I knew at 20. Mostly, these million moms go after gay content.

You can read more here, where there’s a link to the full million mom gay hate rant.

I actually don’t think this sort of thing is going to end until their sons eventually tell them they are gay, or someone else shocks the hell out of them more than the Hot Wire commercial. Which is one more reason why all gay men coming out is so important. I know it can’t be rushed. But it is important. It’s the only way we’re ever going to shut these gay hating women up. And in my lifetime I’ve seen a lot, but never anything as vindictive as a woman who hates gay men.

Grindr Dating

This is important to read for gay men who are out there hooking up on web sites like Grindr. There was a study done that says certain STIs are more common among gay men who use these web sites. They found no connection to HIV in this case. But even still, who wants all those other ugly messy things?

Compared with men who met partners online or in person, men who used social apps had 25 percent greater odds of being infected with gonorrhea and 37 percent greater odds of being infected with chlamydia, the study found. However, there seemed to be no difference between the groups when it came to syphilis or HIV infection.
 
“As technology has benefits, it also has certain risks,” said Matt Beymer, the lead researcher and an epidemiologist at the Los Angeles LGBT Center. “We want to educate gay and bisexual men about the potential risks that they may face with these apps.”

Not to mention murder, robbery, beatings, and rape. I’ve posted about that before here.

You can read more here. Never assume anything. Dating with apps these days is like driving a car. Be defensive.

I would, however, like to know the statistics about straight people using the straight hook up apps, too. From what I hear STIs like herpes run rampant in the straight community and it’s a well kept secret. In other words, I don’t think this STI deal is isolated to gay men and apps only.

Hillary Snaps on Gay Issue

Secretary Clinton had a classic “Hillary” exchange with NPR host, Terry Gross. When Gross tried to goad her into stating her opinions on gay marriage had changed over the years because of political reasons instead of personal reasons Clinton responded with the kind of reply I think we need to hear more often from our political leaders.

“You know, I really — I have to say, I think you being very persistent, but you are playing with my words,” Clinton said several minutes into the conversation. “And playing with what is such an important issue.”

“I’m just trying to clarify so I can understand,” Gross said, but was then interrupted by Clinton.

“No, I don’t think you are trying to clarify. I think you are trying to say that I used to be opposed [to gay marriage], and now I am in favor, and I did it for political reasons. And that’s just flat wrong. So let me just state what I feel like you are implying and repudiate it. I have a strong record. I have a great commitment to this issue and I am proud of what I’ve done and the progress we’re making,” Clinton said.

There’s more here. You can also listen to the interview. They get into more detail about DOMA and how things were in 1993.

Straight/Gay Penis Size; Gay "Cure" Song; Oscar Wilde 46 Quotes

Straight/Gay Penis Size

There’s another study out and this one claims that straight men are more concerned with penis size than gay men. A senior lecturer in the UK made this a focus while working on his PHD.

Half of these men self-identified as gay and the other half as straight. After spending a year on his analysis, he found all men – irrelevant of sexuality and type of sport – were inclined to look at other penises in the changing room.

Gay men tended to feel more self-conscious than straight men, with one participant reporting he felt it was ‘unfair to change in front of heterosexual athletes, in case they felt uncomfortable’.

Some straight athletes admitted to ‘slapping their cock around a bit’ to encourage a semi-erection in order to make their penises look bigger.

Gay men don’t do this because they feel as if they should be acting more heteronormative and don’t want to be singled out for anything. (I hope all those worried about gay men in locker rooms understand this fully.)

You can read more here. It gets better, and I don’t think the results will actually surprise anyone.

Gay “Cure” Song

A pop singer in Italy is claiming that a song he performed about the “gay cure” (which I guess is like reparation therapy) has ruined his career.

Back in 2006, Giuseppe Povia was selling hundreds of thousands of records and receiving special awards from the music industry.

But then three years later, he released ‘Luca era gay’ (Luca was gay)’ about a man who was ‘cured’ of his sexuality.

In his most recent blog entry, Povia said he is now finding it difficult to get work because of the ‘homosexual campaign’.

For those who don’t know what reparative therapy is you can check that out here. It’s when they try to “cure” gay men and make them straight…as if being gay is a mental disorder and not something natural. This kind of thing (and thinking) has ruined the lives of more gay men than we’ll ever know.

I wonder how Povia would feel if someone sang a song about him being “cured” of stupid.

Oscar Wilde 46 Quotes

I love these things, especially when it’s someone interesting like Oscar Wilde. Here’s list of 46 witty, sometimes vicious, thing Wilde said:

26. Bigamy is having one wife too many. Monogamy is the same. 

27. An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.

28. I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never of any use to oneself.

29. I am not young enough to know everything.

30. I sometimes think that God in creating man somewhat overestimated his ability.

31. There is no sin except stupidity.

Unhung Hero: Film Review

Unhung Hero: Film Review

I don’t usually write film reviews here, but this one is different because of the topic. As the title suggests, Unhung Hero is a documentary…self-proclaimed as a cockumentary…directed by Brian Spitz, starring Patrick Moot, that discusses men who are not well-endowed. The title is parody. But the film itself documents a young man’s quest for answers after he proposes marriage in a public arena in front of thousands of people and the young woman turns him down because his penis is too small.

What I didn’t know when I watched this film is that Patrick Moote is a comedian. I’d never heard of him before the movie, and I think that’s important to take into consideration ahead of time. Had I known this I would have viewed the film with a different perspective. But to be perfectly honest being that I didn’t know this I found myself wondering if this was supposed to be serious or not at the time that I viewed it. I now think it’s a combination of both, and Moote used humor in some scenes on purpose.

In fact, had I known Moote was a comedian I would have understood the whole cheesy proposal of marriage in a public arena in front of thousands of people very differently. I’ve always wondered about people who do things like that, and the chance they are taking by assuming the person they are proposing to is going to say yes. It’s very presumptuous at best, egotistical at the worst. But then anyone who does propose marriage this way is clearly looking to get attention and they enjoy grandstanding in public. In other words, they aren’t shy people and they are going for the applause. Most people view marriage proposals as something private and intimate and romantic, and something that shouldn’t be shared with the entire world at large, at least not until after the proposal. But now that I know Moote is a comedian I see the sarcastic humor in the public proposal much better than I did when I first viewed the film, and Moote doesn’t come off looking like such a colossal pompous ass.

After she turns him down and he finds out it’s because she thinks his penis is too small, Moote begins his quest to find out how women feel about penis size, and how he can improve the size of his penis. Moote happens to be a good-looking man by most standards. At least I think so. And I found myself feeling bad for him throughout the film because he has all these wonderful assets and all he’s focused on is the size of his penis. I write naughty romance novels where men often have exaggerated penises, but that’s only fantasy and I don’t think most people take penis size all that seriously in real life. I know I never did. Before I met Tony I dated a male model who was not very well-endowed. I loved every moment we spent together and if he hadn’t been moving across country in a few months when we first met who knows what might have happened. I also dated a guy who was so well-hung it was difficult not to gape at him sometimes. I didn’t have nearly as much fun with him, and I found out that the reason he never took off his socks was because he painted his toenails tipsy pink and was a closeted transgender at the time. Last I heard, the guy with the big one is now a teacher and a woman. And the guy I dated with the small one is a highly successful real estate agent on the West Coast and he’s still all man.

And once again, had I known Moote was a comedian I would have interpreted the film a little differently…more tongue in cheek, pardon that awful pun, at times. But without knowing this I just kept feeling sorry for this poor, sweet nice looking guy who gets constantly slammed for having a little penis. He even goes home to discuss this with his mom and dad, and you wind up feeling so sorry for him you just want to take him aside, show him some good sex for a change, and let him know there’s nothing wrong with him.

He tries penis pumps, penis enlargement vitamins, and he even does this highly erotic penis stretching technique at one point in the film where he stretches himself over and over. That’s where you really feel bad for him and wish you could just jump into the TV, tell him to close his eyes, and relax. He’s ultimately so freaked about his little one he travels to foreign countries where they practice some kind of spiritual ritual that’s supposed to make men like him bigger.

I will admit there is one shortcoming in the film, and it’s not Moote’s penis. And I post about this all the time here on the blog, and how it’s become such a double standard. I’m talking about male full frontal nudity in all films, or lack of it. Because each time you think Moote is going to show you his penis he backs off. And with a nice-looking guy like Moote, and a film title like Unhung Hero, I think viewers should at least get a decent detailed view of what everyone in the film is talking about. I’m not saying we need close-ups. But it would have been interesting to see at least one in-depth shot of Moote walking around without his pants. I don’t think that would have been in poor taste. But like almost all films (even those with full frontal nudity scenes that just flash), this one leaves the viewer to his or her own imagination.

Aside from that, it’s the kind of film that makes you think and wonder after you’ve seen it. The penis enlargement industry isn’t going broke and you have to wonder why men like Moote are so obsessed with their size. And when you think about how many other men there are like Moote you come to the conclusion that it’s high time someone finally started talking about this issue openly. And it’s done with humor in a tasteful way, and it’s compassionate. There’s nothing obscene or dirty about it. But in the same respect, it’s not too clinical either. We get to know Moote as a man, we don’t care about his size, and he comes off looking even more adorable in the end.

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.
