For me, I have been living 2020 fearless and more carefree. Gaining the courage to no longer hide my sexuality, worked out internal trauma from bullies of my past, and worked hard to appreciate the way my body looks. Im sure we can all relate that we criticize ourselves every morning in the mirror, every photo we see and every sexual encounter we have. The constant overwhelming feeling of not being good enough, not being pretty enough or not having the perfect body. Insecurity is a bitch. So here I am, trying to embrace just that. This is the skin I am in. Love yourself for who you are. Whether you are celebrating Mardi Gras or hanging out with friends...

My partner and I have been together for 24 years. We met in NYC on a personal ad section of American On Line - aol. We lived the Chelsea boy life for many years, then transitioned to San Francisco Bay Area.As we’ve aged, we have both been pleasantly surprised by the attention we still get from younger gay men . In our minds, We don’t identify as “daddy” types, but at 53 & 49 I guess we definitely fit the profile. When we were younger, we didn’t find ourselves attracted to older men, and we’re sure there are plenty of young gays who are more agist. But, thus far, we’ve been delighted to still be found attractive by a lot...

Do you ever feel that guys are only interested in using you for sex? You usually meet men out and everyone’s end game is sex.

I hope eventually we can see past everyone’s curiosity on “size” and meet someone who can think a little bit deeper. Often times as an African American I see people who just want to hookup with you to see the size of your penis but in reality we are much more than a fetish. Have you ever felt...

A regular 27 year old guy from Belgium saying hi to all of you! Writing this message is giving me a little bit of stress because I’m literally putting myself out there. I have always been the guy to avoid being in the centre of attention due to various insecurities. I always wanted to be liked by everyone, look like them, act like them. And come on guys, let’s be honest, social media can be a pain in the ass for people with insecurities. And for those: don’t care too much. Life is short! Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride baby.Luckily growing up makes me realize it basically doesn’t matter what you look like, as long as you actively...

A month ago, I had one of the worst situations I've had in my life, someone broke my heart like never before. I saw in front of my eyes how I went from being the happiest person, full of life, engaged, to being someone miserable, vulnerable and with a lot of pain. I felt that everything was falling apart, that it was really the end. With the help and support of family and friends, I realized that it is not worth feeling this way for someone who played with you and never really valued you. After of 4 weeks from this chaos, I started taking therapy, meditation, and decided to come to Zipolite, a nudist beach in Oaxaca, Mexico, where...
