In much the same way that HIV at its height changed the way gay men date and have sex, the advent of PrEP has also started a change in the sex life and dating habits of today’s gay men. While bareback sex used to be frightening because of the specter of HIV, PrEP has allowed it to be on the menu again, so to speak. For HIV-positive men, PrEP has meant a new lease on their sex lives.

But PrEP has also been very divisive, especially between gay men who grew up in very different generations. While it’s been a boon to a lot of gay guys today, its effect can be frustrating to those who grew up with the horrors of the AIDS epidemic. Since the introduction of PrEP more than a decade ago, more and more gay men have been forgoing the condom, something that the generation that grew up with AIDS fought so hard for during their time.

It’s not surprising that these different attitudes towards PrEP has resulted in some friction. The phrase “Truvada whore” has been thrown around, meant to imply that those who use PrEP are irresponsible and slutty. It’s gotten to the point that a study in the 2017 issue of AIDS and Behavior revealed that “a belief that PrEP was for the promiscuous was strongly associated with lack of interest in using PrEP.”

While being discouraged off of medication that could prevent the spread of HIV is alarming enough, what’s even more distressing is that the study also revealed that the people most likely to declare that PrEP is for the promiscuous and therefore don’t take it are the ones taking sexual risks. This means the people who most need PrEP are the ones who aren’t taking it. It’s slut-shaming that can have very dire consequences.

It’s distressing to say the least, and we want to hear from you Adam4Adam readers. Have you ever been stigmatized for being on PrEP? How did you respond to it? What do you think can be done to remove this stigma? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

In your own opinion, what is the maximum age limit to go clubbing, anyone? And by that, we do mean the age that is deemed inappropriate or too old for the clubbing life. Is there such a thing? After all, we always hear there is a minimum age required to enter clubs, but a maximum?

We are not talking about barring people who reached a certain age from entering the club; rather we are talking about the “socially acceptable age.” Because apparently according to the findings of a British study titled The Great Outdoors conducted by Curry’s PC World, people stop going to the club at 31 on average.

However, when people hit 37 and they’re seen in the club and bars (specifically people in their 40s and 50s) having a good time amidst the young ones in their 20s, that is considered tragic. Or at least 37% of their 5,000 respondents thought so.

I personally think there is no age limit when it comes to having fun. If I were fifty and I wanted to go clubbing then I will, age be damned.

But apart from the age factor, the survey states that clubbing becomes less desirable as we age because of the following: being unable to “face the hangover” the next day, plus the various inconveniences involved in “getting dressed up” and “booking for taxis.” Then of course there are others who prefer to stay at home and keep themselves busy with their electronic devices and the social media. Lastly, almost 70% claimed they were happy to have found their long-term partner as that has put an end to their nightclubbing, the reason being they no longer have to search for a significant other.

Which brings us to the question: Why do you go clubbing, guys? Are you a club person? Why or why not? And how old are you? How old, in your opinion, is too old to go clubbing? Share with us your thoughts, opinions, and stories in the comments section below.

Celine Dion is taking Paris by storm.

Fresh from her recently concluded four-night concert at AccorHotels Arena in Paris, Celine was seen shooting a fashion film with Vogue for the magazine’s couture week video. She modelled the most fabulous couture looks from Valentino, Chanel, and Christian Dior this season has seen on the runways of Paris complete with unique headpieces.

Celine’s got a flair for fashion and she carries a distinctive style, but what I loved the most about the video is the mood and how it captured Celine’s naturally bubbly personality. It was apparent whether she was wearing a white dress, a jumpsuit with an exquisite floral headpiece, or that pale pink tulle attire. My favorite part was when Celine was fooling around while cruising the River Seine on a boat, wearing a floral ensemble. And of course, there’s this two-piece gray tweed skirt outfit she wore (that I particularly loved) as she danced in the streets of Paris, a stylish wide brim hat on her head. However, she looked absolutely divine wearing that ciré tulle and red velvet Valentino dress with a long train, do you agree?

Take a look at the must-see fashion film below. You may also head over to Vogue for the complete story.

Celine is currently on a European tour titled Céline Dion Live 2017. It started in Copenhagen last June and other stops she made/will make are on the following countries: Sweden, England, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, and Germany. You may click here for more information.

I have been talking to this guy for a few days. He seems nice, the conversation is great. He appears to be old school, doesn’t have sex on the first three dates (per his profile), doesn’t jump from one guy to the next, wouldn’t even send me a shirtless picture, saying that it is reserved for his partner and says that he doesn’t like body hair.

So out of curiosity tonight, I asked him how set in stone his rule was about body hair and he said that it was pretty solid as he finds body hair a turn off. Not really the answer I was expecting.

I have a hairy chest that I usually keep trimmed. I’m not a fan of being hairy. It looks great on other, fit men, but not on me.

So he asked me if I minded removing it if it bothered him. I responded that as long as I could use trimmers without a guard and not a razor I would be ok with it but he never answered the question, partly my fault as I asked a different question, incidentally changing the conversation.

All evening this has been at the back of my mind and I’m not sure how to feel about this. I know that it is a superficial issue but why should I have to change something for someone else? Why can’t he accept me for all that I am, hair and all?

I have enough body issues from within myself and the emotional scars that my ex left and his doesn’t help.

What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear them. Just please keep them friendly.

Straight guys are a staple in gay men’s fantasies, but a new book reveals that gay sex might just be as popular in straight men’s minds as they are in gay men’s.

The book, Everybody Lies, is written by Seth Stephens-Davidowitz and examines America’s online searching habits. One of Stephens-Davidowitz’ findings would not be surprising to any Adam4Adam user who’s had sex with a married man on the down low: there are a higher number of closeted men in America than you think.

In an interview with Vox, Stephens-Davidowitz revealed that his data suggests that about five percent of men are predominantly attracted to men, which is two percent higher than what is believed.

Other findings aren’t as surprising. For one, there may be more closeted men in the South than there would be in New York. Stephens-Davidowitz points out that while fewer men in places like Mississippi admit to being gay, “gay porn searches are about the same everywhere.” It also doesn’t  come as a surprise that women in the South are searching whether their husbands are gay or not.

“The number one question that women have about their husbands is whether he is gay. And these questions are much higher in the Deep South, where my research suggests there are indeed more gay men married to women,” explains Stephens-Davidowitz.

Some of Stephens-Davidowitz’ other findings include young men being more attracted to elderly women and overweight women, and “about 20 percent of the porn women watch is lesbian porn. A lot of straight women watch lesbian porn.”

Do these findings surprise you? More importantly, if you’ve had an encounter with those closeted Southern men, tells us the details! Share your stories with us in the comments section below!

Hot or Not: Harness https://www.adam4adam.com/blog/2017/07/hot-not-harness/ https://www.adam4adam.com/blog/2017/07/hot-not-harness/#comments Thu, 20 Jul 2017 17:19:57 +0000 https://www.adam4adam.com/blog/?p=15142 harnessPhoto Credits: Adam4Adam What do you think about harness, guys?

What do you think about harness, guys? Do you love looking at men who’s got their leather harness strapped on? Do you find it hot or not?

There are guys who are into this and it’s not hard to see why. Harness screamed rough and masculine and therein lies a huge part of the appeal. Perhaps it’s the way the harness frames a man’s chest, I don’t know, but personally I do find it hot. I prefer the plain black leather harness though, not the colorful ones but eh, that’s just me. The colorful ones exist because there are others who love it that’s for sure.

But me, I love the simple ones, like Nasty Pig’s Paratrooper Bulldog Harness. The style is classic and versatile—made to highlight a guy’s shoulders and pecs. I also love Nasty Pig’s Asymmetric Holster Harness. It has a pouch that allows you to put your cellphone, cards, and cash—talk about fetish, fashion, and functionality rolled into one and if you are finding these awesome, you might want to head over here to check out our new arrivals and latest styles from Nasty Pig.

Anyway, I guess you can say it boils down to how the leather harness or the harness in general can make a man look hot and irresistible in someone else’s eyes. And of course, how it can turn a man on, let’s not forget that one.

Also, I think this is one piece of clothing that sends the: hey, let’s fuck signal. Moreover, a person doesn’t necessarily need to be into BDSM or pup play in order to appreciate it. Harness can be worn and enjoyed for its aesthetic value or appeal not because you’ve got a fetish for it. Do you agree? Why or why not?

Simon Dunn, rugby player and member of the Australian Olympic bobsledding team, recently talked to the Evening Standard about homophobia in sport, where he came out against athletes being pressured to come out of the closet when they’re not yet ready.

Dunn told the newspaper that professional players shouldn’t feel pressured to come out and that they should do it on their own time.

“It is selfish for our community to expect someone to do it because of their public profile. Given the sporting culture, coming out could seriously affect their career,” he explained. “I myself was already out when I joined the Australian team, but from my own experiences I can understand why someone wouldn’t come out, let alone someone earning and risking millions of pounds.“

As a young man in Australia, Dunn grew up playing Rugby League but found himself leaving the sport because of the stigma attached to being a gay man playing sport.

““I wasn’t exactly welcome within my team growing up. Its not the easiest road to take. And also growing up I’d learnt to believe gay men have no place in the sporting world and it took me a very long time to dispel those beliefs,” he recalls.

Dunn was the first openly gay male to represent Australia in the sport of bobsledding. He’s been featured on Buzzfeed and Attitude Magazine’s Naked Issue. He was also voted #1 in Attitude’s Hot 100 List.

He also maintains a social media presence via his Instagram, thesimondunn and was a former columnist on the blog Guys Like U. Dunn  also had his dick pics leaked, which should not have been a surprise as he had previously talked about having dick pics out in the wild.

“I think it’s a case that one will eventually resurface. I guess my only fear is that it’s a bad one and not one of the better ones I’ve sent!” he said of his dick pics.

Sportswear or sports gear fetish, do you have one?  Do you attend regularly or maybe have been into a sportswear party once, care to share the experience with us?

No, you don’t have a sportswear fetish?

But you do get turned on when you see an attractive guy in a pair of swim trunks or in a football gear, yes? I mean it could be a guy in a motocross gear or a wrestling singlet but the point is that everybody is guilty of admiring a guy in a sports uniform at least once in their lifetime. Do you agree?

If you fantasize about these guys while masturbating, it is quite understandable. It’s probably the thought of them getting all hot and sweaty while in their sports ensemble or maybe it’s the outfit itself: tight, sexy, emphasizing the man’s bulges in all the right places especially the one down below. Yep, I do mean his dick. *Grins*

Whether you are the one who does the looking or the one being looked at—either at the party scene or, you know, you really love sports and you’re often wearing a sports uniform (triathlon, basketball, etc.)—share with us your thoughts and stories in the comments section below.
