Gay men are cleaning up their act, with Dyson

Dyson DC61 Animal

Whether you are dropping in unannounced, last minute, or for a planned visit, as soon as you walk into the home of a gay man it’s impossible not to notice how immaculate it is. Every item has its own place, everything is organized, and it is completely spotless.

So how to most gay men keep their homes so clean, fresh and comfortable? That’s top-secret information, but being a neat freak is the right of passage for every gay man.

If you’re still struggling on what to get your best gay man for Christmas this year, it’s without question that you need a gift that is practical, sophisticated, fun, and designer. More importantly, you want a gift that doesn’t suck. Or do you?

Dyson DC61 Animal

Introducing a gift that will make you a shining star this holiday season. The Dyson DC61 Animal handheld is most definitely a gift that will get your gay man excited. And it really sucks!

The advanced digital motor gives the Dyson Animal triple the suction of any other handheld vacuum on the market. That’s a lot of sucking!

Dyson DC61 Animal

It’s not just the suction that makes this cute little vacuum fun. Its sleek and modern design screams to be picked up and used. It comes with three attachments including a beater roller bar, a brush, and a wand. No spec of dust can hide from this beast. If it does try to hide, simply press the “max” button for an extra boost of power.

Unlike most battery-powered gadgets, the Dyson Animal doesn’t slow down as the battery wears down. It continues to power through with maximum suction. When the battery is dead, it automatically shuts off. The Dyson Animal charges in about four hours and has about a 20-minute use time.

It’s also super easy to take care of. Simply push down on the big red button and the bottom door opens to release all the dust and particles picked up during the cleaning frenzy. Once in a while you can pull out the filter and run it under cold water and let it air dry to keep it in tip-top-shape for picking up all the micro-dust. Simple!

The Dyson Animal is a bit heavier then the average handheld, but when you’re getting this much power, it’s a good trade-off. Plus, what gay man isn’t at the gym lifting weights to stay in shape anyway. Lifting this bad-boy is no big deal. Besides, it’s pretty.

Dyson DC61 Animal

This Christmas, you could give a scarf, a bottle of wine, cologne, or some other gift that will likely be put away at the back of the closet and long forgotten. Or you could give a gift that comes out of the closet all year long, that will be used, cherished, appreciated, and make his life easier to keep his home meticulously spotless. You choose!

Hornet App releases new functionality providing more tools for your safer-sex toolkit

Hornet AppWhether it’s to find new friends, a long-term relationship, someone to talk to, or a random hook-up, geo location apps are one of the easiest ways for gay men to meet other gay men. All they need is an iPhone, Samsung, or some other smartphone device with mobile or WiFi data connection and they are ready to download apps to get them started to meet other gay men in their area.

Many users of these types of apps want to be able to search and filter through people in the area to find the best matches as quickly and easily as possible. Being able to read simple biographical information up front helps the user determine if the other guy is what they are looking for.

Hornet App is one of the better gay geo-location apps for users to be able to search, filter, and look at multiple photos of people in their area, or search people in specific areas. Hornet has over 4 million users worldwide, making it one of the most popular gay geo-location apps.

In the United States, 20% of gay and bisexual men are estimated to be living with HIV. A recent study by the Kaiser Family Foundation found 44% of the men under the age of 35 said they had never been tested for HIV. There are many jurisdictions around the world that ignore HIV education completely and openly discriminate against gays.

Hornet App ProfileGetting tested regularly and knowing your own HIV status is one of the top tools to have in your safer-sex tool kit. It’s also extremely important to know your partners’ status and when they were last tested. Unfortunately, not enough men are asking the questions or getting tested regularly. By knowing each partners HIV status, you can make an educated decisions on the types of sexual participation each partner is comfortable with. Serodiscrimination is a good example of using safer-sex practices.

Hornet has recently introduced enhancements to the “Know your status” feature of their app, which now allow users to get more specific about their HIV status. These include giving users the options to disclose if they are taking pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), or if they are positive and have an undetectable viral load.

Hornet CEO, Sean Howell said, “We are committed to looking for ways to eliminate stigma about this disease and to share the latest health facts on preventing HIV and empowering those living with HIV better options for self-expression.”

Hornet App Know Your Status (KYS)There are two new options that now appear in the Know Your Status (KYS) section of members’ profiles:

“Positive, Undetectable”. This option is for those who are HIV positive, on antiretroviral therapy, and when tested for viral load register undetectable. Studies have shown that this type of treatment can reduce the likelihood of transmitting the virus to their HIV Negative partners by as much as 96%.

The second new option is “Negative, on PrEP”. PrEP, also known by the brand name medication, Truvada, can reduce the risk of HIV infection by up to 99% when taken daily. Truvada is endorsed at PrEP in the United States by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and is available through most doctors. In Canada, Truvada is not approved for use as PrEP by Health Canada, however, it is available through a handful of physicians who are prescribing the drug off-label, and through pilot programs in both Toronto and Montreal.

“In planning all of these changes we were shocked when we surveyed a sample of our members about their lack of understanding of either of these options,” said Sean Howell. “In fact, nearly all guys told us they had to search online to find out what these meant before they could answer our questions. Having done so, a clear majority felt these new options were important and should be added to the app”.

Hornet App Know Your Status (KYS)

The interviews conducted with Hornet members underlined the need to explain and educate. The third significant change is that the app now includes comprehensive background on HIV/AIDS, and detailed explanations of all the different KYS profile choices. Recognizing the global reach of the Hornet app, this information is being translated into 26 different languages. Whether Hornet members are in San Francisco, London, Paris, Moscow, São Paulo, Istanbul or Bangkok, the same information is available in a language they know and understand.

Boomer Banks is doing a booming business in fashion and gay porn

Boomer Banks

Everyone has his or her own reason for getting into the scandalous world of the adult entertainment industry. People turn to porn to help fund their way through university, explore their sexuality, or use it as a creative outlet. Whatever the reason, it’s personal and with purpose. For most, it’s not an easy decision because of the consequences it could have on their future, but for some, it opens up new doors of opportunity.

Take Boomer Banks for instance. Since he was a little kid, Boomer Banks recalls eagerly watching his mom working away as a seamstress, reconstructing garments to make them uniquely their own. That’s where his interest in fashion design started, when he was a young boy.

Fast-forward in time, Boomer Banks has grown up and has exploring the world of fashion, carving out a name for himself in New York City. He knew he had to do something different to really help make him stand out from all the other designers.

“It wasn’t until I was working with a designer friend of mine, Johnny Sakalis, that I got excited about it,” Boomer Banks said, describing how he got the idea to consider working in the gay porn industry. “It felt natural. All my career in fashion has been working for other designers. I got into porn to brand myself like Anna Nicole, Jenna Jameson, and Kim Kardashian. Sex sell. It can totally work to my advantage doing just that.”

Most people who work in the adult entertainment industry are pretty clear, you have to have a full time career, and porn is something that you do on the side. This is exactly what Boomer Banks is doing, and it’s working to his advantage.

“I’m a fashion designer who happens to do porn,” said Boomer Banks. “That pretty much sums it up for me. I’ve always been told that I’m sexy. I didn’t embrace it for a log time.”

On Boomer Banks 33rd birthday he did his very first scene with Raging Stallion. Just 24 hours later, the Falcon Group called to offer him an exclusive model contract. It was that easy.

“It wasn’t a desperation act for me,” said Boomer Banks. “I’m not trying to prove anything to anybody.” Of all the Falcon Group brands, Boomer Banks primarily shoots with Raging Stallion because it more fits with his look.

Like many Falcon models, Boomer Banks takes safer sex very seriously. He is a firm believer in the use of condoms in gay porn.

“I chose to do condom porn because that’s the message I want to put out there,” said Boomer Banks. “As an adult, that’s a conversation that needs to happen between two adults. As adults who chose to do bareback porn, that’s what they choose to put out. The ones that do chose to do bareback porn are very responsible and respectful of what message they put out there. For the most part, they own it. For me, my thing is condom porn as my brand. Safe sex is sexy.”

Just a few weeks ago, on American Thanksgiving, Boomer Banks very first bottoming scene was released.

“The turkey got stuffed, and so did Boomer,” laughed Boomer Banks. “The only way to grow is to evolve. It just seemed like the right time to do it. There’s nothing unmasculine about bottoming, and there is no shame from it at my end. I just go with the regular flow in my life.”

In his personal life, the vast majority of the time Boomer Banks is a top, but if he meets someone and he’s into it, he’ll bottom.

Watch in early 2015 as Falcon releases the official Boomer Banks dildo.

“It’s been exaggerated on the size,” Boomer Banks said modestly. “It’s what they do and it makes sense to me. If you do a mold of someone’s penis and then you take the person away, it’s really not that big. I don’t have that problem, so it’s very interesting.”

The new Boomer Banks dildo will be available at most quality adult stores and will be available through Boomer Banks website.

7 reasons every straight guy needs a gay best friend

12 Cocktails of Christmas – Scroogedriver

Scroogedriver cocktail featuring Stoli Blueberri vodkaFrom Sir Patrick Steward to Bill Murray, the role of Ebenezer Scrooge from Charles Dickens’ Christmas Carol has been played by a variety of fine actors. The iconic tale of the cold hearted miser who sees his lonely and cold past, present, and future as a slave to the almighty dollar, and finds room in his heart to give to the poor and make the present a little bit less of a trial, is some of what inspires the spirit of giving that runs through the holiday.

Do Straight Men Really Hook Up With Gay Guys?

Do Straight Guys Really Hook Up With Gay Guys?

Short answer…yes. And while that may seem odd, there isn’t a clear-cut answer as to why they do. If a man categorizes himself as straight, meaning he is attracted to women and has sex with them—then why would he hook up with a gay man? Curiosity is a major factor. Experimentation with the unknown. Let’s be clear, we’re not talking every man, but we are talking about men come to a point in their lives where they start to question certain aspects about themselves. Sexual identity might be one of the things to come under scrutiny. Repressed urges that once again arise unexpectedly. And depending on the guy, he might not have a problem with having sex with another man to calm their internal conflict. Does this make him gay? Not necessarily. It means nothing more than a curious man tried something that piqued his interest. That is better than just burying those urges and praying they never return. The encounter can be as simple as jerking off with another guy, or it could be full-on anal sex. It depends on the guy, what his comfort level is, and what he wants to experiment with.

If a straight man has sex with another man, then he must be gay, right? Well, the real answer is, no. Many gay men have had sex with women in an effort to test their sexuality, only to come out of the experience having tried what’s on the other side of the fence—still gay. Now exploration isn’t the only reason why straight men have sex with men. Another possible reason is that men give better oral than women. Men have dicks and that gives them an edge on knowing what other guys like. Curiosity still plays a part in this scenario, but it’s more about not being satisfied with what they have, and venturing into foreign territory to see if they can get their rocks off from a mouth with more skills. Now this isn’t to say anything disparaging against women and their oral skills; it’s just to explain the internal motivators that drive straight men into the beds of other men.

If a guy finds that he enjoys sexual pleasures with men, but doesn’t actually find himself attracted to them, he might seek it out on a regular basis. This still doesn’t mean he’s gay. It means he likes sex and it doesn’t matter if it’s with a woman or a man. Often this can occur with men who are addicted to sex. If the desire to have sex is that intense, then the possibility of a straight man having sex with another man isn’t entirely impossible. It really just depends on the situation and the motivational factors. As with anything else, there is no black and white answer that will explain all occurrences of straight men sleeping with gay men.


Sending handwritten Christmas Cards is the biggest trend this Christmas

The biggest Christmas trend to come back is the tradition of sending Christmas cardsThe hottest trend this Christmas is to send out Christmas cardsThe holiday’s are all about traditions. From putting up the Christmas lights to decorating the tree, everyone has their favourite annual tradition. Sending Christmas cards are a tradition that dates back to the 1840’s, but has the tradition lost is luster? Hardly! It’s quickly becoming one of the hottest holiday trends.

Throughout the 20th century, the tradition of Christmas cards was on the rise, especially as Christmas became more commercialized. Christmas cards became a great way to stay in touch with family, distant relatives, friends, acquaintances, and business associates.

The majority of Christmas cards that are send feature Christmas, winter, religious, or other holiday theme images. Inside, the sender personalizes the card with well-wishing messages for both Christmas and the upcoming year. In some cases, people will include an annual letter providing an update on the past year.

During the 50’s and 60’s, sending Christmas cards was a big ordeal. Cards were beautifully decorated and it was special to receive a greeting card in the mail. In the 70’s and early 80’s sending Christmas cards slowed with concerns over the environmental impact, but it was short lived as recycling programs caught on. Throughout the 80’s and early 90’s, sending Christmas cards reach an all-time high, as the tradition of keeping in touch became more and more important. Being on someone’s Christmas Card List was a great honour, and to be removed became a clear signal that there was a falling out. During the boom, it was common to send out over a hundred Christmas cards each year.

As the digital communication age advanced, a move to e-cards, email, and text messages quickly began to erode away at the tradition of sending Christmas cards. Many people saw it as a way to cut costs, reach more people, and send messages faster. The reality was that it was impersonal, and almost insulting to receive a digital card.

Today, there’s nothing more enjoyable than opening the mailbox during the month of December to find colourful envelopes, waiting to be ripped open. People are again excited an eager to check the mail daily, just to see who has send them cards. Sending Christmas cards is making a resurgence, as all generations remember the nostalgia of the tradition, almost forgotten from over a decade of decline. It’s become trendy to send dozens or hundreds of friends,  family and acquaintances handwritten cards, to let them know you are thinking about them.

For those who used to send Christmas cards but for whatever reason stopped, it’s time to jump back on the bandwagon because the trend is back! If you’ve never send Christmas cards before, now it’s a great time to start. It’s easy to pick up a box of cards and ask a few family members or friends for their addresses. It’s also good to have a few extra cards on hand throughout the month in the chance that someone sends you a Christmas card that you hadn’t previously send one to. Returning the gesture by sending back a Christmas card is proper etiquette.

Christmas card mailing lists should be kept up-to-date throughout the year and carefully checked prior to posting them in the mail. Yes, it’s perfectly acceptable to ask someone for their address or to confirm their address.

Now, pick up some Christmas cards, make yourself a holiday cocktail, and put on a Christmas movie, and start working on your Christmas cards. It’ll make your holiday spirits bright!

3 ways to prevent a Christmas disaster

How to prevent a Christmas disaster

Gay men love Christmas because it involves shopping, planning, creativity, décor, entertaining, parties, cocktails, wrapping gifts, and kisses under the mistletoe.

The Christmas season can get extremely busy. From shopping for holiday gifts to figuring out what dish to bring to a holiday potluck party, there’s always something that needs to be worked out to ensure the celebrations go off without a hitch.

If you’re planning to be home for the holidays, don’t forget these important details:

  • Gift-wrapping. If you don’t already have a gift-wrapping room or gift-wrapping centre, your gay card should be taken away immediately! Always have extra boxes, bags, tissue, ribbons, bows and tape to help get you, or anyone else get their gift wrapping done, even late on Christmas Eve night. A well-wrapped gift is always appreciated just a little bit more.
  • Have extra beverages on hand. Cardinal rule for all gay men. Always have a well-stocked liquor cabinet throughout the year. This includes a few bottled of each red and white wine, a bottle of bubbles in the refrigerator, a case of beer, and the standard spirits of Stolichnaya vodka, gin, dark and light rum, and perhaps a bottle of scotch. Never make ice in your freezer; always buy fresh-bagged ice.
  • Know who’s coming for dinner. When you send out the dinner invitations remember to follow up to find out how many guests each are bringing. You’ll need enough place settings, cocktails, wine, and dessert for everyone. It’s also important to check to make sure your guests don’t have any food allergies.

There you have it. Three things you can do to help prevent a Christmas disaster!

  5. A Watch. Time will stand still when you surprise him a fabulous watch.
  6. Headphones. Whether they are Monster Beats from Dr Dre or some crazy modern-age head-gear that doubles as a set of speakers, you can never go wrong with giving headphones.
  7. Barware. Picks, shakers, ice balls, and jiggers… no, they aren’t sex toys, they are essentials for every home bar.
  8. Tickets to Miami Winter Party. You can’t go wrong with giving the gift of 10,000 gay men bumping and grinding on the beaches of Miami in March!
  9. KitchenAid Stand Mixer. If it’s mixed, whisked, blended or folded, it has to be done over-the-top and with the utmost style. No, not the Artisan series dear, the Professional 600!
  10. Leather gloves. Soft black leather, rich chocolate brown, or delicate taupe, a man can never have too many pairs of leather gloves to get through the winter season.
  11. Beauty and the Beat the Musical tickets. It’s one of the most romantic musicals from Broadway, and it’s on tour in 2015!
  12. iPhone 6. The biggest and best tech gift this Christmas. It’s sleek, stylish, and an essential tech toy for every gay man.
  13. 300 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. There are never enough sheets in the linen closet. They change with the season. A fresh set is always in order.
  14. Manscape trimmer. Part of getting his gay card was to pass Manscaping 301, a university level course on body hair trimming.
  15. Lincoln MKZ. You thought diamonds were a gurls best friend? Wait till you see his reaction when you put a big red bow on this fabulous piece of machinery!

There you have it. A whole ton of Christmas gift-giving ideas for the gay man in your life.

5 personal sex questions for male escort, Miles Previtire

Miles Previtire

While you my know that Miles Previtire is a dominant top male escort who recently relocated to Las Vegas, NV, and that he is one of the most sought after male escorts in his escort category with fans and followers all over the world, how well do you really know him?

Even if you don’t know Miles Previtire all that well, you will know that he is extremely verbal and has a no-nonsense demeanour all the time. He is not gay. He strictly identifies himself as a heterosexual male who only has sex with men on business terms.

So those are the basics. Things everyone knows about Miles Previtire. Now it’s time to reveal the answers to five personal sex questions. Some of these facts are information that even his most loyal followers and clients don’t know about him!

Enjoy!

1. What is your biggest pet peeve?

“I think I would have to say that teeth irritate me more than anything else.” explains male escort, Miles Previtire. “Next to teeth, I hate having to stop for gasoline. Takes too long. Especially those final ten seconds where the flow slows way down. I usually just hang the pump up and leave. I’m like fuck that fifty cents, I don’t even give a shit about fifty cents. Full is full.”

2. Safe sex or bareback sex?

“I preform bareback sex under very particular circumstances, where health statuses can be verified,” said Miles Previtire. “I have a handful of clients who are exclusive to me and their spouses. That’s all… I know… I know. It’s awesome. I also make a lot more money off those scenes. As for my preference? My dick prefers bareback sex. My conscience prefers safe sex.”

3. Who gives better head, men or women?

“I’m an Mouth Man,” ginned Miles Previtire. “That’s actually not a secret. I guess it’s a fair assumption that I get a fair amount of head. It’s important, actually. In order to get my dick ready to bang you, I require a proper blowjob, ball service included. I’m not even fucking around. The fact is, sans a little time in the mouth, my dick is lost. It’s like he doesn’t know what to do. I can send messages down there, I get mad… it doesn’t matter. Head comes first. Fucking comes second if the head is good. That being said, women make up about 10-15% of my clientele but here’s my summation. When a woman gives a man a blowjob, she does it because she has to. It’s part of her duty. When a guy gives a man a blowjob, he does it because he wants to. It’s part of his life.”

4. Would you do a scat scene?

“No plans in the near future.”

5. What do you think about PrEP [Truvada]?

“I think it’s great protection if you are a bareback bottom having sex with more than one guy, or an ambitious female, or if you’re someone who enjoys gangbangs, things like that,” explains Miles Previtire. “If you can afford it, absolutely. Down the Truvada before the load.  As a top, without a versatile bone in my entire body, call me ignorant but I tend to subscribe to the belief that my odds of contracting HIV are extremely low. My worries are more with syphilis or herpes, or STI’s contracted through skin contact. I have plenty of contact with skin. I have no contact with cum. Although, I once made a quick appearance at this kind of dark, drug-driven backroom type bar in the Midwest. I took a friend with me. It was a favor to the owner. I was stupid enough to sit down in the darkroom. Wouldn’t you know I sat right in some fucking jizz. You should have been there. I had to have my buddy drive home. One of the few times I’ve cried on the way home from anywhere. He just laughed and laughed. I can laugh about it now, too. Finally.”
