Dear Friends and Fellow Pilgrims: ;-)
Recently someone posted a comment about "Gay for Pay" - the sitz where "straight" men engage in gay sex for salaries. . in and out of the porn business.
This post had an url to a clip on this topic from the TYRA BANKS morning TV talk show, the audience being primarily women. Ms Banks had two straight men who work regularly-part-time performing sex acts together. . .man-man sex. Tyra's "style" is purient, juvenile and I think geared toward voyerism and salacious talk/imaginings, while posing as mature, intelligent conversation. I think Ms Tyra's segment is cheap and degrading of gay people in general, gay men in particular.
It would appear, from their point of view, being gay is solely about having sex, anyway and anyhow you can. It is pornography, pure and simple, as it were. ;-)
I decided not to post this contribution not in criticism of the commentor in any way. I believe his motives and in him as a good and valued member of our blog "community". I just prefer not to publish, on my blog, that kind of material. I do not want the reputation or responsibility of even hinting I favor such material. I do not. I do not want this kind of article/video on my bog site because it does nothing to honor gay men or build up our own image and our collective image as gay men. I feel this kind of stuff cheapens us.
I hope my friend, if he wishes to, will contact me privately using this email addy: firstname.lastname@example.org. If I had another way of explaining my omission of his comment I would have used it, because I respect and enjoy him very much.
For any future personal contact any may wish to make, my email addy is given at the end of the "About me" in the sidebar.
Thanks. Ciao ciao, bambini. . . .
