Personally, I find it incredibly unappealing when I see a picture of a guy in lace panties, usually with a caption like "use me daddy" or "sissy craving cock" or something similarly revolting.

There’s this couple who does amateur porn vids on PornHub, Zilv and Rourke (one’s a hunky jock, the other a twink who looks just like Hunter), and they totally play on this fetish. So hot.


Awe there adorable together. :heart:

I got the same but I've always thought the Kinsey scale is very outdated and is not a good way to measure someone's sexuality.

I dont think there's any simple test that can figure the complexity of. Someone's sexual orientation. There are far more then 6 categories (if you can break it into categories) and we know a person's preferences can change in there lifetime.

Fun little quiz if you like those things though. :lol:

I think the Kinsey Scale is ok as a basic model and that people make sexuality more complicated than it needs to be.

I agree with the Kinsey Scale in presenting sexuality as a spectrum, with exclusively straight at one end and exclusively gay at the other. You don't need to be 50/50 right down the middle to be considered "bisexual", you can favour one gender more than the other. However you also don't have to split hairs. If you feel you are mostly at one end, then you can still overall classify yourself as "straight" or "gay" even if you do occasionally feel different.

I also find any other labels outside of straight, gay or bisexual to be superfluous and unnecessary. Asexual is someone with a consistently low sex drive. If you're attracted to a certain kind of trans or intersex person, you are still attracted to whatever sexual characteristics they're expressing, so it still goes gay/straight (or bi if it's a combination on one person) to me. I find "pansexual" a completely pointless term. I am attracted to transmen, but I'm not attracted to them because I see them as some weird third gender. I'm attracted to them because they've developed the characteristics I like on men, and that is still gay.

Sooo you'd be totally fine if you picked up a guy at a bar or whatever and went home to hook up and discovered he had a pussy?

I never said I was exclusively a bottom :p

Then again that never happens in real life, they generally tell you beforehand.

So a cute guy told you beforehand he is trans and has a pussy.

You'd be down with exploring that?

The polite politically correct part of me wants to say yeah. But i know i dont like nor want any vagina ever again.

I totally agree with label's. But mostly because no one should have to explain what their into. It effects nobodies life but there's. There is no need to join a group cause you like something specific. Its your personal business and should stay that way.

If I saw a trans guy who was really passing well and I was attracted to him, liked his features, body looking good and we had good chemistry then personally yes, I wouldn't be turned off if he had a vagina.

That's just me though, I don't judge other gay men for feeling differently as long as they're not rude about it. Everyone has their own deal breakers and if a guy having a pussy is an absolute NO for you, you have a right to feel that way.

So, today is my birthday, I’m just getting home from a family meal, I’m 31. It has taken 31 years for my dad to reveal that in his younger days, he was a minder for one of the members of Queen. And was stage side, in the wings, throughout the entire legendary Live Aid set. I didn’t believe him, I found a clip on YouTube and had to validate his claims that you can see him poke his head out from behind a speaker. There he was.

It’s not an interesting thing for any of you, but me and my dad have spoken about that set before, we’ve watched it together, and he never mentioned that he was there. 20ft from Freddie Mercury at the most legendary moment of his career and the arguably the greatest rock and roll moment of all time.

It’s funny how you learn things about people that you always assumed you knew well.

Today, I learned that you're supposed to measure from your pubic bone to the tip, not from the scrotum to the tip. If you do the latter, your missing out on half an inch or more! :0

Also, I would like to clarify your statement. If you're a big fat fuck, or indeed any gradation of fat fuck, measuring from your pubic bone will actually add to your advertisement by including inches that aren't practically employable.

I've recently learned that there's a significant section of people who hate monkeys. Sometimes monkeys in general, but often specifically baby macaque monkeys. Really hate them, to the point of wanting to hurt them. I've no idea why.

Some context. A while ago, I had been talking to a friend, and it came up that they didn't like monkeys. Thought they were creepy. Sure, nothing weird in that. More recently, I was watching the BBC rendition of His Dark Materials, which has a monkey character, and one of the people who I was watching it with mentioned that the monkey was creepy. Again, nothing weird in that, the character is meant to be creepy. But they kept mentioning how gross and creepy they found the monkey, every time it was on screen. I asked them if they disliked monkeys in general, and they said yes, they didn't like them.

Huh, I thought, is this a common feeling? Most people seemed to be neutral, or liked seeing monkeys, and there didn't seem to be any other mammalian animal which evoked such specific negative feelings. So, I looked it up. Yup, it's pretty common. More disturbingly, I learned that there seems to be a phenomenon whereby people not only express dislike for monkeys, but actually enjoy thinking about and watching them be harmed. Here's an example of a Reddit thread with someone confessing their, self admittedly irrational, hatred of monkeys.

I went down the rabbit hole. There's loads of "monkey hating" videos on YouTube. People commenting how much they hate monkeys and how they'd like to hurt them. Bizarrely irrational stuff. I see that other people have noticed it, and they too are wondering what causes the irrational hatred of monkeys. Major theory seems to be that people who live in areas where monkeys live view them as pest due to their behaviour, but this doesn't seem to explain the really strong reaction. One idea is that people experience an "uncanny valley" effect, in that monkeys are somewhat similar to humans, and this creeps them out. But great apes don't seem to elicit the same reaction, and they're even more similar, obviously. Another theory is that people see some monkey behaviour as particularly cruel, and perhaps combined with the human similarity, evokes a visceral negative reaction. What is going on? Elaborate trolling? Genuine psychological quirk? Species specific sadism?

I am monkey-neutral and very confused. There are monkey haters amongst us, and I demand an explanation. :blargh:

I loved monkeys! Then I saw that film, Planet of the Apes, the remakes, not the old ones and suddenly, I saw monkeys in a whole other light. :nod:

Where once they were cute and funny! Now they are potential competition :wide-eyed: :shifty:

We must not allow this prediction to come to pass, should we inadvertently uplift our near cousins, we will surely regret it and no doubt they are complicit in the agenda of monkey and great ape domination! Just look at those monkeys who can sign! Leaders of the radical pro-ape movement.

Stand firm against the insidious Apegender to supplant us as the Earths dominant mammalian species! Bring me their pelts! :hitler:
