We hate to harsh your day, but we’ve got some serious boner-killing news on our hands here. All that oral sex you young folks are so fond of? It’s killing you. HPV, the nasty little Human Papillomavirus that we already know is linked in a major way to cervical and […]
Hate Group, The National Organization For Marriage’s Anal Coresspondent Maggie Gallagher reveals in a new column that real feminists don’t have anal sex.

We may have to start tuning in to Comedy Central’s Tosh.0. Somehow we missed this week’s Gay Porn Viagra Boner Challenge. You know, that thing where you give five of your best straight guy pals a Viagra, dress them in sweatpants (The Kryptonite of lap privacy), and turn on some […]
A new study out of Oregon State University shows that 40% of straight couples in so called monogamous relationships have differing views on exactly what that entails – only one partner agreed to be sexually exclusive.

While flying back to Seattle from an assignment in Washington, D.C. for GayTravel.com, an ad in this month’s Men’s Health lifted my spirits caught my attention. I’ve been interested in Vibram Five Fingers for a while now. You know, the gorilla-looking shoes with the toes in them. I’ve held out on […]
We are thanking our lucky stars today that we aren’t allergic to our own semen. Apparently, some men experience flu-like symptoms after ejaculating that can last up to a week! We’re talking sniffles, fever, burning eyes, and intense fatigue. Well, the fatigue part might apply… Doctors rarely even realize the […]
January 8, 2010 The Portugese Parliament legalizes civil unions for same-sex couples (+10 Awesome gay blog points) but rejects a proposal to allow the newly wed gay couples in question to adopt (-7 Fairness).

The world’s first luxury condoms are now available from The Original Condom, straight out of gay blog Mecca, Condom, France (Who knew it even existed?). The regal rubbers claim to be “chic and elegant” and are equipped with “French Touch”. We admit, they’ve gotten a rise out of us – […]
It’s like Facebook, but with nobody on it. OutMilitary.com, a new social networking site (Yesss! Another!) wants YOU gay blog readers to create a profile. Queerty ran a story on the site earlier claiming the site’s membership was only in the double digits, but it looks to me like there […]

Dating and Gay Sex
Popular culture has been serving up an over-sexualized portrait of the gay community for decades, especially with regard to gay men. Yes, gay people like to have sex. But is a person’s gay sex life really that different than a straight person’s? The answer is yes and no.
Of course, it all depends on the individual in question, but just because we tend to think that gay people have a lot of sex doesn’t mean it’s true. Gay or straight, casual sex has become ubiquitous in today’s culture. People are holding off getting married or not getting hitched at all. Despite these common trends, there are plenty of differences between gay sex and straight sex.
In addition to having to take photos of every part of our bodies, we also have to list our favorite sexual positions, kinks, top or bottom. The list goes on and on.
With all of this innovation in the dating world, gay people now have instant access to a world of options. No more scrounging for dates during last call at the local gay bar or making weird eyes at the guy in the H&M dressing room. Gay people are now free to lay it all on the table and find the perfect mate.
Cruising, Apps and Gay Sex
While any gay person can download an app to their phone and start cruising possible same-sex partners, the entire act of trying to go to bed with someone can feel a bit underwhelming. Online pornography is playing a key role in these monumental cultural shifts. We can watch just about any sexual act with the touch of a finger. When a person can get off just by opening their computer, dating and courtship start to go extinct.
The world of sex is completely different from what it was ten years ago. But putting these differences aside, everyone just wants to feel loved. Find out how the subject of gay sex is changing in the queer community with Hornet’s full sex coverage below.
