Cootie Catcher.

You may remember Lucas who helped me out with a cheeky Youtube video review of the Fleshlight and a Speedo. Lucas has always been a great supporter of me and of the blog and now he needs our help to support his latest show. “It’s about spreading sex-positivity, and encouraging audiences to protect, respect, and embrace their bodies, and step-by-step, destigmatize those who may have experienced sexually transmissible infections at…

Telling each other to ignore the bullies isn’t helpful.

I have grown to dislike it, hate it even when people say to others regarding bullies, “oh just ignore them”. I remember being told “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me”, but words do hurt and they can leave scars that run deep and last a lifetime. It was a lazy response from people who were either unwilling or ill-equipped to genuinely help. Telling…

Gay 101. The value of experiences over things.

Living a life with very few material possessions has taught me to value experiences more than things. The money I have is limited so I have always preferred to spend my time and my money doing things that I thought would enrich my life. I don’t have a house full of stuff, I have only enough clothes to get by in summer and winter, I don’t buy labels I own…

  I am often asked questions and receive emails from young people asking about how to deal with bullies or people who are making life hard for them. Some have been picked on, others feel that they cannot be themselves because of what other people say about them. Gay, lesbian, straight, bi, transgender, inter-sex or whatever, we are all subject to bullying by others at some point in our lives….

What’s the deal with spanking? Not the good kind of spanking… you know spanking the monkey, but the kind of spanking that hurts? Why do I keep getting requests from guys who want to spank me? I once knew a guy who genuinely got off on spanking guys and a guy who used to ask me to spank him so hard I had to literally take a run up before…

Everyones coming out experience is unique and it’s a very personal choice, but there are a few things I would suggest to help make it easier and safer. Firstly you need a support network. You need someone on your side. I would suggest that you start with a close friend, relative or even…

The problem with the way we think about being “fit”.

The way our culture thinks about being fit and going to the gym is more to do with vanity and looking good than it is to do with our health. When people send me messages they say, “you look so hot, what’s your gym routine?,” not “oh you look so healthy.” The whole aesthetics culture is part of the reason why people look at going to the gym and say…

  Today was the annual Melbourne Pride march but this year was a little bit special. This year we celebrated 20 years of Pride with what felt like one of the biggest parades yet. The weather was a little bit ominous but luckily it stayed warm and the rain held off as we marched through St Kilda resplendent in out speedos, kilts and all manner of outfits. I really do…

EEEkkk. I wrote this and forgot to publish it. That’s what happens when I get distracted by new underwear. The Midsummer festival here in Melbourne has begun. It’s one of the largest GLBT festivals down under and rivals Sydney’s Mardi Gras for cultural and Arts activities. This year as always the festival kicked off with the Carnival day in the park and Melbourne turned on another beautiful summers day for it….
