Whenever I hear South Korea the first things that come to mind are: the breathtaking Jeju Island, their scrumptious food, Korean dramas (and, ahem, their gorgeous actors), and their historic temples, palaces, and museums. These days though, thanks to the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games in South Korea, a certain tourist attraction is gaining considerable prominence both online and offline.

Reports say that tourists and Winter Olympians alike are flocking in droves to visit Haesindang Park, more commonly known as the Penis Park. And, yes, you’ve read the name of the park right.

Haesindang Park was named as such because it is a penis-themed park. It has giant penises, some carved out of wood and it is nestled on a hill with a beautiful beach backdrop. Take a look at the video of the place below.

Haesindang Park stole the attention of the visitors thanks to its almost 300 penises that is of various shapes and sizes. There are penis-shaped cannons, penis totem poles, and penis wind chimes. Tired from roaming around the park? They’ve got penis benches, too!

Supposedly there’s a bizarre legend that inspired the creation of the Haesindang Park and that’s the tragic love story of a young virgin bride who died during a stormy night before her wedding could take place. She allegedly drowned while her fisherman fiancé was working in a nearby cove. After her untimely demise, the villagers have been unable to catch a fish, up until a fisherman urinated into the sea that is. This particular occurrence led the villagers to believe they could only appease the dejected spirit through the “sight of a male genitalia” hence the construction of the Penis Park.

Well, that’s according to the legend. The official story says Penis Park was constructed along seven others to “inspire fertility in the country” as South Korea has low fertility rate with only 1.17 births per woman as of 2016.

Want to check the place yourself? Haesindang Park is located in a small town called Sinnam and is merely an hour away from Pyeongchang where the 2018 Olympic Winter Games are well underway.

Sexuality: Tips For Tops Who Want To Bottom https://www.adam4adam.com/blog/2018/02/sexuality-tips-tops-want-bottom/ https://www.adam4adam.com/blog/2018/02/sexuality-tips-tops-want-bottom/#comments Thu, 22 Feb 2018 14:40:19 +0000 https://www.adam4adam.com/blog/?p=16371 When it comes to the subject of tops and bottoms, most gay guys seem set in their ways. Unless they’re..]]>

When it comes to the subject of tops and bottoms, most gay guys seem set in their ways. Unless they’re vers, there’s very little movement from top to bottom or vice versa, pun intended.

However, there are those tops who meet that special guy that makes them decide maybe it’s worth it to be the bottom for once. If you’re one of those guys, you’re in luck. Here’s our list of tips for top looking to bottom for the first time.

1. Lube up

It can’t be said often enough: lube is really, really important, especially if it’s your first time taking a dick. Don’t be afraid to be liberal with applying it on your hole and on your partner’s cock — it’s hard to get pleasure out of bottoming when you have to wince all throughout. Get free lube here!

Another great way to prepare yourself for bottoming is with dilating your asshole. Doing so helps your muscles relax and makes it easier for you to lubricate your anal canal. If this is something you want to try out there’s plenty of anal training kits in the Adam4Adam Store to try out.

2. Assume the position

Of course, there is no one perfect position as it depends on how your bodies respond to one another. However, it is a good idea to have yourself on top of your top so you get to control how deep, how hard, and how fast the top can go. Switch your positions up once you’re no longer feeling any discomfort. You can even have him stick it in you deeper, faster, and harder.

3. Talk to him

Bottoming for the first time can be a really intense experience, so make sure that you’re telling your partner everything that’s going on while it’s happening — whether it’s painful, pleasurable, or whatnot. Unless your partner’s an asshole, they’re going to appreciate you telling them that what they’re doing is making you feel good.

It’s just three tips, but these are ones that are sure to make your first time bottoming an enjoyable experience. If any of our Adam4Adam blog readers have any other helpful suggestions, feel free to tell us all about it!

News: Trump’s 2019 Budget Proposal, Anti-LGBT? https://www.adam4adam.com/blog/2018/02/news-trumps-2019-budget-proposal-anti-lgbt/ https://www.adam4adam.com/blog/2018/02/news-trumps-2019-budget-proposal-anti-lgbt/#comments Wed, 21 Feb 2018 15:05:53 +0000 https://www.adam4adam.com/blog/?p=16365 Photo Credits: Gage Skidmore [CC BY-SA 3.0], via Wikimedia Commons Trump’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2019 was released last..]]>

Trump’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2019 was released last February 12, and netizens and organizations alike are calling it awful, anti-rural, and anti-farmer among others in social media. Meanwhile, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) released a statement calling the FY 2019 budget proposal “irresponsible, dangerous, and anti-LGBT.”

While it is still a proposal for now and nothing is set in stone yet, it does give the people a glimpse as to where the Trump administration’s priorities lie and it definitely isn’t education, agriculture, or housing. For a more comprehensive discussion on the proposed budget, read The Washington Post’s detailed analysis or take a look at the infographic below for a quick guide.

Reports say the proposed budget will “harm people with disabilities, older individuals, communities of color, veterans, young children, women, LGBTQ individuals, and rural communities” to name a few. It will also affect the “nation’s health care system,” as well as access to “affordable housing and nutrition,” and programs such as Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Read more here and here. All of these, so the government could afford to “pay for additional defense spending, the border wall, and an infrastructure plan.”

Further, the budget plan includes cutting of “over a billion in funding for global HIV and domestic HIV/AIDS programs.” The aforementioned programs include the Ryan White  HIV/AIDS  Program  ($58  million cut),  CDC’s  HIV  prevention  programs  ($40 million cut) , and the AIDS Housing programs which will be cut by $26 million. One Campaign says there is also a $225 million cut on the Global Fund that would force PEPFAR (the President’s Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief) to “implement a strategy that could lead to 300,000 deaths and 1.75 million new infections each year.” Read about this particular issue in detail here and here.

Today, there are over 1.1 million Americans living with HIV and according to HIV.gov, “gay and bisexual men—particularly young African American gay and bisexual men—are the ones who are most affected.”

Below are some of the netizens’ reactions on Twitter which we gathered for you.

What do you think about Trump’s proposed budget for 2019, guys? Do you agree with his allocations? Why or why not? Share with us your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.

Sports: Adam Rippon on Body Issues and Eating Disorders https://www.adam4adam.com/blog/2018/02/sports-adam-rippon-body-issues-eating-disorders/ https://www.adam4adam.com/blog/2018/02/sports-adam-rippon-body-issues-eating-disorders/#comments Tue, 20 Feb 2018 16:30:41 +0000 https://www.adam4adam.com/blog/?p=16361 (Photo Credits: Adam Rippon Twitter) American figure skater Adam Rippon, who has always been outspoken on certain issues concerning the..]]>

American figure skater Adam Rippon, who has always been outspoken on certain issues concerning the LGBT community, talked about body issues and eating disorders this time around.

It was 2016, he said, when all he ate daily was “three slices of whole grain bread topped with miserly pats of the spread I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.” Rippon, 28, added he drank three cups of black coffee (each cup sweetened with six packs of Splenda) to go with the bread. He went on to explain how he wanted to have a body like his teenage teammates who were “all doing these quads, and at the same time they’re a head shorter than me, they’re 10 years younger than me and they’re the size of one of my legs.”

Speaking in an interview with NY Times, he said, “It makes me dizzy now to think about it.”

It was when he got injured that he realized his unhealthy eating must have been a contributing factor to said injury. These days he works with United States Olympic Committee sports dietitian Susie Parker-Simmons on his dietary and nutritional issues. Rippon explained how a “fog of fatigue over him lifted” when he started doing so. Adding, “I didn’t realize I was so tired all the time.”

And as to why Rippon had chosen to speak about his body issues, he said he “hopes that by speaking honestly he can help others.”

Eating disorders can affect everyone regardless of their age, sex, gender, race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic group but some tend to be vulnerable to it more than the others. Athletes like Adam Rippon, for one, because of the belief that “lower body weight will improve performance” among many other reasons and then there is the LGBT community. Risk factors identified which may cause eating disorder in an LGBT person include the various stresses caused by (fear of) coming out, discrimination, bullying, and “body image ideals within some LGBT cultural contexts” to name a few.

In America, an estimate of 20 million women and 10 million men “will have an eating disorder at some point in their lives,” National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) reports. NEDA further revealed that “gay men are disproportionately found to have body image disturbances and eating disorder behavior (STATS).” In fact, studies show that 42% of the men who have eating disorders identify as gay—this, even if “gay men are thought to only represent 5% of the total male population.”

Not only did American freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy fail to repeat his win in Sochi Winter Olympics in 2014, he also finished last. That, on top of a broken thumb, which he fractured three days before the competition. And as if the fracture wasn’t enough, Gus had a bad fall during training the next day where he sustained a bruise on his hip so bad it caused a hematoma and several vials of blood had to be drained from it.

But while he may not have won an Olympic medal in PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games’  Men’s Ski Slopestyle, Gus and his boyfriend Matthew Wilkas are currently winning hearts and mind.

Right before the qualifying round for the ski slopestyle event on Sunday, the couple shared a kiss at the bottom of the hill. The kiss, followed by a hug, was so fast it didn’t even last for a second but naturally, it didn’t escape the attention of NBC and captured the moment.

The couple trended online as netizens react over at Twitter and various other social media. Check out some of the tweets below.

Matthew Wilkas would later describe the kiss to Associated Press as “such a little kiss.” And it was, but that they could do it freely and without hesitation was why netizens were making such a big deal out of it. “If I’d have known it was a big deal, I’d have made out with him,” Wilkas joked.

For his part, Gus said the kiss was something he wanted to do in Sochi but that he decided against it, mostly because he wasn’t ready and he wasn’t out to his family and friends yet. Later, in an interview, he said, “And so to be able to do that, to give him a kiss, to have that affection broadcasted for the world is incredible.”

Five Olympic Hotties in PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games https://www.adam4adam.com/blog/2018/02/five-olympic-hotties-pyeongchang-2018-olympic-winter-games/ https://www.adam4adam.com/blog/2018/02/five-olympic-hotties-pyeongchang-2018-olympic-winter-games/#comments Sat, 17 Feb 2018 18:10:58 +0000 https://www.adam4adam.com/blog/?p=16342 (Screengrab from Eric Radford Twitter) The 2018 Olympic Winter Games are underway in PyeongChang, South Korea, who’s your favorite male..]]>

(Screengrab from Eric Radford Twitter)

The 2018 Olympic Winter Games are underway in PyeongChang, South Korea, who’s your favorite male athlete? We certainly have been watching; in fact we spotted several male Olympic hotties who sizzled in and out of their uniforms so much they raised our body temperature despite the cold. Take a look at some of them below.

  1. Eric Radford, 33, figure skater

Eric Radford announced his retirement in figure skating following his gold (team figure skating) and bronze (free skating) finish at the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games. He will, however, always be an inspiration for being the first openly gay athlete to win a gold medal at the Winter Olympics.

 

But Eric’s journey is not without hardships for he was “bullied and pushed around as a kid.” That, in addition to the financial difficulties the family went through, how they had to sell their cottage and their house and still be $80,000 deep in debt. He said in an interview, “There’s so many moments in life, or especially in an athlete’s life, where you’re wondering if it’s all worth it. And then you step up onto the podium and you’re like, yes. Yes, it was. All the time away from home, crying on the phone to my parents, dealing with the bullying, it all becomes worth it.” Follow Eric Radford here.

 

  1. Yuzuru Hanyu, 23, figure skater

Dubbed as the “Ice Prince,” probably everything about Hanyu is beautiful: his skating, his face, his smile, and his skin. Fans call him cute, sexy, phenomenal, and adorable but he’s seriously badass in the skating rink.

 

Skating with a right ankle freshly healed from a severe injury, Hanyu successfully defended his Sochi gold medal, a remarkable feat achieved 66 years ago by Dick Button who himself called Hanyu and his skating “gorgeous.” In addition to his numerous accomplishments, Hanyu also went down in history as the Olympian who won the thousandth Olympic Winter Games gold medal event. Natural talent and hard work aside (he is said to “train 14 hours a week in low and high seasons in Toronto, ON, Canada”), Hanyu’s unparalleled determination was born out of a calamity that left him literally running for his life while still on his skates. The Great Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami left such a huge impact on the then 16-year-old Hanyu who years later said, “I often feel that things you take for granted are not always guaranteed. Everything exists by luck. Because I almost lost everything, I came to feel this way. The disaster totally changed my values. I want to make every single day, every practice and every competition count.” Want to know more about Yuzuru Hanyu? Click here.

 

  1. Michael Martinez, 21, figure skater

Michael made history in the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics as the first Southeast Asian figure skater ever when he was 17. What began as a hobby of going to the mall rink once a week as a nine-year-old kid had turned into something serious when he started winning in international competitions.

 

PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games is Michael’s second Olympics. Clearly, he’s come far from this kid who had asthmatic bronchitis into this guy who inspires other dreamers for defying the odds by skating his way to the Olympics despite growing up in the tropical Philippines, a country that has no winter season. Check Michael out in his Instagram account here.

 

  1. Hakeem Abdul-Saboor, 30, bobsled

This guy has it all: a handsome face, towering height (he stands 1.83m) not to mention he’s got a beautiful smile, and a gorgeous body to boot. According to NBC, Hakeem is the “first U.S. Olympic bobsledder since at least 1998 (perhaps ever) to convert from another physically demanding exercise – bodybuilding.” Physique competition, to be precise, and he “did five shows and won three titles.” He started bobsled in 2015 and the rest, as they say, is history.

 

While at school, this Powhatan native played basketball, football, and track and field. His former UVA-Wise football coach said of Hakeem in an interview, “He has all you need for bobsledding. He has great speed, great strength and great agility. You have to jump and get into that sled. He’s so athletic, and all of this just fits with him. He’s a natural.” Want more of Hakeem? Check him out here.

 

  1. Chris Mazdzer, 29, Luge

This three-time Olympian made history when he won silver in men’s singles luge event, the “first luge medal of any kind in U.S. history since the sport was introduced in 1964.” But this American luger’s journey had been anything but smooth. In an interview with NBC, Mazdzer said, “It’s 16 years in the making. I’ve had a rough last two years, and it just shows: Don’t ever give up. Whenever you lose, keep fighting.” Chris Mazdzer talked more about his Olympic struggles below.

I took this picture right after walking home from the track after a less than ideal race. Even after an hour I could still feel the anger, frustration and disappointment deep inside and it was still coming through my eyes.  What kills me on the inside is not the fact I made a few small mistakes, what kills me and has been driving me wild for over a year now is the fact that no matter what I do my top speed and ability to be with the top guys in the world has disappeared, and I don’t know why. (Also probably the fact that I really care)  There comes a point where giving it everything you have and believing in yourself starts to fade away and I am almost to that point. For some reasons unknown to myself, things are not working out as planned. Why keep pushing on then?  Well, for starters I still believe in myself and am confident with my sliding and starts. I am not someone to walk a way during a struggle although this struggle seems to be getting the best of me… Finally, there is no way I can give up with the biggest race of my life being just weeks away and even though the last thing I want to do right now is think about Luge, that’s what I am going to do this afternoon.  There is a light somewhere in this dark cave that I feel like I am stumbling aimlessly through at times and you better damn believe I’m going to find it.  Thank you to everyone who has always believed in me, I want you to know that you always help me get through the tough times and I am looking forward to sleighing the future 😉🤘🏼 I thought about waiting to post this until after laying down and contemplating things over but writing that actually felt very cathartic. Screw it, post!

Mazdzer has a great smile and is currently dubbed as the Internet’s new boyfriend. For more of Chris Mazdzer’s hotness, you may follow his Instagram account by clicking here.

Burberry chief creative office and president Christopher Bailey will be saying goodbye to the iconic British brand in a fabulous way at the London Fashion Week. After working for the brand for 17 years, Bailey is using the fashion house’s Fall 2018 collection to bid farewell while at the same time show his support for the LGBTQ community.

Rather than using Burberry’s iconic brown and black checked pattern, Bailey swapped it for rainbow hues. Additionally, Bailey also dedicated the line to LGBTQ people all over the world.

Bailey first announced the plan on Instagram, posting a photo of the rainbow-line fabric and captioning it with: “There has been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength, and our creativity.”

 

Bailey’s final line for Burberry is being released in partnership with three LGBTQ charities: the Albert Kennedy Project, the Trevor Project, and ILGA (The International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association).

Bailey is himself an openly gay man who has been in a relationship with British actor Simon Woods since 2009. The pair married in 2012 and have two daughters.

Make sure to check out the show tomorrow February 17th, live on Burberry’s website. Are you guys excited to see what Bailey’s final line for Burberry will look like? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below!

In one of our previous article titled Gay Pool Party in 1945, we mentioned in passing how homosexuality continues to be illegal today in over 70 countries. In said countries, same-sex relations are criminalized but in some others, “consensual same-sex relations and other homosexual acts” carry the death penalty.

To Adam4Adam members who are reading this right now, what is it like for you to be gay in your country in this day and age? We are asking because while there has been significant improvement made on LGBT rights in countries like Australia and Germany, in other parts of the world, last year seemed to have been the worst for the LGBT community.

For example, 2017 had seen a dramatic surge of violence against the LGBT community in the form of massive LGBT crackdown in countries such as Egypt, Tanzania, Indonesia, Chechnya, Tajikistan, Azerbaijan, and Turkey. In addition, 2017 is said to have been the “deadliest year” for the community in Brazil what with “387 murders and 58 suicides” of LGBT people. On top of all these, PinkNews reported that “activists in Bangladesh, Uganda, Georgia and Nigeria have also warned about clampdowns.”

Then there’s also the violence on transgender people in the United States that left 26 dead in 2017. And just recently, Bermuda made a move to repeal gay marriage less than a year after it was legalized, replacing it with domestic partnerships.

Because of all these, UN’s first independent LGBT human rights expert Vitit Muntarbhorn has warned of a “brewing global crisis” last October adding that “immediate action is needed to stop” it. He said, “LGBT people are suffering a crucible of egregious violations, including killings, rape, mutilation, torture, arbitrary detention, abduction, harassment, physical and mental assaults. They are subjected to lashings and forced surgical interventions, bullying from a young age, incitement to hatred and pressures leading to suicide.”

Muntarbhorn explained how the “universal umbrella of human rights offered a blueprint for the respect of diversity and appreciation of our common humanity.”

That being said, what is it like for you to be gay in your country in this day and age? Is your country gay-friendly or is it one of those 70 countries or so where LGBT relationships are illegal? Share with us your thoughts and stories in the comments section below.
