Has Masculinity become a fetish?

  I am about to head of to Mardi Gras where there will no doubt be thousands of hot men all sporting 5 o’clock shadows, tattoos, hairy chests and buff Muscular bods. All of which I do not have. Physical masculinity it seems has become a style all in it’s own. It’s hard not to notice the trend lately around the gyms and clubs. It is not exclusive to Gay…

Anatomy of a Mardi Gras suitcase.

I packed my bags today for Mardi Gras. It’s always fun to take a step back and look over the items ready to be tucked away. You can get a picture of what the weekend is going to be like. Imagine discovering my bag in a thousand years time. I wonder what they would think. Those of you who like the CSI series will enjoy deciphering what all of this…

Count down to awesomeness.

Last year I missed Mardi Gras. With the move back to Melbourne and a few other things going on I simply wasn’t able to get there. This year is different. About a month ago my friends and I started planning our trip up to Sydney and once again I am going to be marching with the lifesavers in the parade. Because we are unable to get to the rehearsals the…

To camp it or not to camp it?

For a little while now I have had my thinking cap on about what I can do to add some new perspectives and some fresh ideas to the blog. I thought it might be nice to add a few guest Writers. I think it’s a great way to give others a chance to write and to bring some new and different views to the blog. I am really pleased with…

Hi man, I think ur an awsome guy and I love ur blog. U have a great body and look amazing in a speedo. I workout hard and would like to wear a speedo when i do laps at the public pool. How do u not only get the body but the confidence to wear a speedo?

My Mum put me in swimming lessons when I was very young and so I started wearing a speedo from about the age of 5 or 6. I guess for me it seemed natural as well as being perfectly practical. How anybody would swim laps in board shorts is beyond me. However I got to high school and obviously wearing a speedo caused much joking and embarrassment. Guys around school…

Mr Positive

I have been feeling very introspective lately and looking over the blog has made me notice one thing in particular. I’ve been a bit down lately. Actually a lot down, I’d even go so far to say depressed. It happens to all of us. So now it’s time to vent. You might have noticed the lack of a regular talky blog update or an inspiring “you can do it post”…

Goodbye Grindr.

I deleted Grindr from my phone. I wonder how much time each day I will save now? It might seem like a bit of a contradiction to loath being single and then going and deleting Grindr. But over the last few weeks I have been growing more and more frustrated with it. I have handed out my number on quite a few occasions in the hope that I might score…

Do you find your personality changes significantly in the bedroom? I’ve known guys that are meek and mild and remain so sexually or others who become beasts. Additionally, seeing that sexual side to someone is especially erotic, do you agree?

I don’t think that my personality changes that much in the bedroom during sex. I think it changes depending on the individual or individuals I am with. It also depends on the context of the encounter, whether it’s a tender moment with a lover a heaving sex pile. There are those of us that are more confident in the bedroom than others but I think that some of that comes…

Photo Fest.

On Sunday I headed down to the Saint Kilda Festival here in Melbourne. I have been contributing to a prominent local online magazine here in Melbourne and I wanted to put together a gallery for them on the event. The Festival itself is one of the major tickets on the cultural calendar down here in Melbs. The festival is a combination of art, music and party and culminates in Festival…
