Hey, guys! Do you have a beauty regimen for your butt?

Apparently, Madonna has one; albeit simple, as it only involves applying a mask on her butt, the very same mask she puts on her face. Yes, you heard it right, guys! With the penis facial and anal rejuvenation among others, you’d think we already heard it all but at least this one won’t weird people out. Or would it?

Madonna said in an interview she applies clay mask on her butt to keep it “smooth, glowing, and hydrated” because, hey, our butts have got an audience, too. In her own words, she said, “There are certain special people that get to see our butt and you want it to look its finest.” Putting it that way, I’m inclined to agree though I must admit I would never have thought of this.

Madonna said she uses her own product called The Reinvention Cream because it contains extracts of the resurrection plant called Myrothamnus flabellifolia, which is endemic to South Africa and Haberlea rhodopensis, which is native to Bulgaria and Northern Greece. Resurrection plants are famous for its ability to survive extreme dehydration for months or even years on end. According to the US National Library of Medicine (NLM) | National Institutes of Health (NIH), Myrothamnus flabellifolia is an “important plant in South Africa because of its widespread occurrence and usage in African medicine and traditional culture.”

Anyway, if you feel like trying The Reinvention Cream you may get it here. Madonna is donating a portion of its earnings to her charity Raising Malawi that sends Malawian children. They are kids who were “mostly left alone, abandoned and orphaned by AIDS.” For other types of creams for your other needs, you may get here and here.

So, butt masking, guys. Are you for it or not? And yes, it’s a thing now thanks to her. Or perhaps you already practice butt masking in which case please tell us how it worked for you. Thoughts? Share it with us in the comments section below.

After months of speculation spurred by his own Instagram posts, “Glee” star Kevin McHale came out with a tweet that even referenced Ariana Grande’s latest single.

The tweet reads: “#NoTearsLeftToCry is gayer than me and I ACCEPT. Ty @ArianaGrande.”

For the past few months, the 29-year old actor had been posting multiple photos of himself with a man that social media users have identified as 24-year old actor Austin McKenzie. Last week, McHale appeared to confirm the relationship with an Instagram post of him cuddling with McKenzie. Even earlier than that, McHale had posted a photo of him holding hands with a guy, with the caption the American Sign Language (ASL) sign for “I love you.” Aside from being an actor, McKenzie is also an ASL interpreter.

The two worked together on ABC’s eight-part miniseries “When We Rise,” which tells the story of the gay rights movement over the past 45 years. McHale played AIDS activist Bobby Campbell while McKenzie portrayed a young Cleve Jones. “When We Rise” was helmed by openly gay Academy Award winner Dustin Lance Black and openly gay Academy Award nominee Gus Van Sant.

McHale is best known for the role of Artie Abrams, which he played on the hit show “Glee” for six seasons. McKenzie, meanwhile, first came into prominence playing the character of Melchior Gabor in the Deaf West Theatre staging of “Spring Awakening”.

Congratulations on the boyfriend and on coming out, Kevin!

Two-time Grammy nominee Tim Bergling, popularly known as DJ Avicii, passed away on Friday, April 20. He was 28. As of this writing, the cause of his death is unknown.

The sad news was confirmed by his publicist Diana Baron through a statement that read, “It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii.” She added, “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

The Swedish DJ worked with the likes of David Guetta (Sunshine, which earned him a Grammy nomination), Madonna (her Rebel Heart album), and Adam Lambert (Lay Me Down) to name a few. He was also behind the Electronic Dance Movement (EDM) hits “The Days,” “Le7els,” “Wake Me Up!,” and “You Make Me.”

Fans remembered him as one of the most popular and successful electronic dance music artists of all time, one who had been in the Forbes’ “Highest-Paid DJs” lists on several occasions. DJ Avicii however, retired from touring in 2016 citing health reasons. He reportedly suffered from “acute pancreatitis, in part due to excessive drinking” and in 2014, both his gallbladder and appendix were removed.

Apart from the Grammy nominations, DJ Avicii also won two MTV Music Awards and one Billboard Music Award. A few days ago, his final EP called Avicii (01) was also nominated for a Billboard Music Award for top dance/electronic album.

Rest in peace, Avicii, you will be missed.

Recently, we’ve been hearing about the words bipolar disorder because of Mariah Carey’s interview with People where she said she was first diagnosed with it in 2001.

Indeed in 2001, Carey got hospitalized for physical and emotional breakdown. She said she opted to suffer in silence for fear of the stigma attached to the illness that may very well cause the end of her career.

Carey added how she “lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear” lest someone exposed her. But the past two years had been tough for her to the point that her disorder became “too heavy a burden to carry.” She admitted, “I simply couldn’t do that anymore. I sought and received treatment, I put positive people around me and I got back to doing what I love — writing songs and making music.”

Contrary to her fears, her revelation was received by the public well and Carey took to Instagram to tell her fans, “I’ve been hard at work, feeling inspired by each of your stories and uplifted by your overwhelming support. Let’s continue to encourage each other on our journeys.”

Further, Carey says her disorder can be “incredibly isolating” but says firmly that, “It does not have to define you and I refuse to allow it to define me or control me.”

But what does it mean to have a bipolar disorder, really?

According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), bipolar disorder is a brain disorder that causes “unusual mood changes along with unusual sleep habits, activity levels, thoughts, or behavior.” Patients sometimes “feel very happy and ‘up’ and are much more energetic and active than usual (manic episode).” Sometimes they “feel very sad and ‘down’ have low energy, and are much less active (depression or a depressive episode).” Moreover, these mood changes can last for a week or two or even longer. In addition, patients are also likely to hurt themselves or have thoughts of or attempt suicide.

NIMH said people having a manic episode may:

  • Feel very “up” or “high”
  • Feel “jumpy” or “wired”
  • Have trouble sleeping
  • Become more active than usual
  • Talk really fast about a lot of different things
  • Be agitated, irritable, or “touchy”
  • Feel like their thoughts are going very fast
  • Think they can do a lot of things at once
  • Do risky things, like spend a lot of money or have reckless sex

While people having a depressive episode may:

  • Feel very “down” or sad
  • Sleep too much or too little
  • Feel like they can’t enjoy anything
  • Feel worried and empty
  • Have trouble concentrating
  • Forget things a lot
  • Eat too much or too little
  • Feel tired or “slowed down”
  • Have trouble sleeping
  • Think about death or suicide

No, bipolar disorder has no cure as of the moment but with consistent treatment through therapy and medication, these mood changes can be managed. Bipolar disorder treatment also means maintaining a regular sleep schedule, eating healthy food, exercising regularly, avoiding alcohol and drugs, and then there’s stress management.

If you have friends and family who suffer from bipolar disorder—or yourself—help them get treatment because receiving treatment is the best way to start feeling better. Read more about the disorder through the NIHM website or email them at nimhinfo@nih.gov.

More importantly, if you or anyone you know is thinking of hurting themselves, it is imperative that you follow these reminders:

  • Do not leave the person alone.
  • Call your doctor.
  • Call 911 or go to the emergency room.
  • Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, toll-free:
  • 1-800-273-TALK (8255). The TTY number is 1-800-799-4TTY (4889).

How are you enjoying your spring season, guys? We hope that all of you are having fun. Personally, it is one of my favorite seasons because everything just comes alive and each day, everything feels fresh and warm and beautiful!

Speaking of fresh and warm and beautiful (and sexy, let’s not forget that), we have here for you a video of Garçon Model’s Andres Alfaro posing for an underwear shoot. He modelled a couple of stylish spring Garçon Model underwear, the Comet Brief and Galaxy Brief.

These two are part of Garçon Model‘s Galaxy Men’s Underwear Collection and Comet Men’s Underwear Collection. Both collections are low-rise underwear and come in trunks, briefs, and jockstraps styles. Moreover, both feature a myriad of vibrant colors and unique patterns nestled on a black background. Modern and bold, that’s what these collections are all about.

But more than keeping with fashion and trends, these underwear collections are after its wearer’s comfort because of its soft and lightweight material (it is 82% Nylon and 18% Elastane). And hey, it is wrinkle-free thanks to Garcon Model’s wrinkle free technology.

What about you, guys? What are your spring underwear favorites? Do you prefer a particular underwear color for spring?

That being said, we leave you with Andres Alfaro’s video. We strongly recommend that you watch this sexy video in private though.

How did you find the shoot, guys? And did you love the featured underwear? Get Garçon Model’s Galaxy Brief here and Garçon Model’s Comet Brief here. Can’t get enough? Explore the entire Garçon Model’s Spring Collection here.

While there’s now more information about HIV than there was during the height of the AIDS crisis of the 80s and early 90s, that doesn’t mean that the stigma that surrounds HIV+ people has completely disappeared. So many misconceptions still hound HIV+ people, making many aspects of their life difficult. Some, like Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst, even get blackmailed.

Dating is one such aspect of their life impacted by misconceptions, misinformation, and just plain insensitivity when it really shouldn’t be. Adam4Adam is a dating platform for gay and bisexual males, with or without HIV, and we want everybody here to have a good time. If you’re interested in dating someone HIV+ or want to turn them down without being unintentionally offensive, take a look at these five things you definitely shouldn’t say to HIV+ people.

  1. “I can’t date you because I want to stay clean.”

Think about it. When you say this to someone HIV+, you’re basically telling them that they’re unclean, which simply isn’t the case. It also implies that HIV+ people can’t be touched, and that doing so “taints” other people. We all know by now that HIV isn’t transmitted by touch, and it can’t be passed on by those who have an undetectable viral load either. It would just be better all around to stop saying this altogether.

2. “Why didn’t you tell me earlier?”

While Adam4Adam profiles have a section for HIV status, this isn’t something that we require users to fill up. The reason for this is because just like someone sexual orientation, one’s HIV status isn’t something to be forced out of them.

There’s also the fact that one’s medical information should be treated as private and confidential unless it’s the person himself divulging the information. It’s not something that you share with third parties either, like another dating platform has done.

Lastly, if we’re being completely honest, some people wouldn’t even give HIV+ people a chance if they started a conversation with their status. How can you blame them for only choosing to disclose it further down the line?

3. “Disease Free Only”

Just like the previous item on this list, if you put this on your profile, you’re automatically rejecting people with HIV, without even bothering to find out what they are like as a person. Also, it’s not like having this on your profile is a magical talisman that will shield you from infection. Not everyone with HIV knows that they have it. Rather than making people opt out of your dating pool, get to know them first. Additionally, have an actual safe sex strategy rather than just leaving the responsibility to other people.

4. “Have you infected someone before?”

Not only is the question incredibly intrusive, it’s incredibly hard to answer. HIV can remain dormant for very long periods, so it would be difficult to know exactly who exposed whom to the virus. Health departments would probably be able to pinpoint it, but they rightly wouldn’t share anybody’s personal medical information. Additionally, asking this question puts the onus of sexual safety on the HIV+ person, when it should be on both persons having sex.

5. “So, you have AIDS?”

It’s hard to believe, but there are still some people that don’t know the difference between AIDS and HIV. AIDS only happens to HIV+ people once their immune system completely fails. But with the tremendous advances made in antiretroviral therapy over the decades, AIDS cases have gone lower and lower. So don’t just blindly assume that just because someone is HIV+, that they have AIDS too.

To our HIV+ users, what other things are you sick and tired of hearing on dating platforms? Tell us about it in the comments section below.
