What’s on the horizon for us sexual beings who walk on the wild side? The age of bookstores and bath houses dwindle in the age of apps that help us hook up and get off.  We sort through grocery lists of stats, and hope the one we pick to meet is sane, courteous, and lives up to all his profile specifications. We meet in public settings and throw them off by wearing the blue shirt instead of the red we mentioned; we send them to the vacant apartment across the hall; or we pull up in the Toyota when we said we drove Honda, all for the sake of safety as we screen our candidate for hot butt naked sex.

Safety becomes a real thought once we remove the barrier of distance and/ or anonymity. What happens when all the clothes are off and it’s about to go down?

There’s a blue pill that is becoming a game changer in our worlds of sexual adventure… Not that blue pill naughty boy. (smile) It’s the other blue pill. The one called PrEP or pre-exposure prophylaxis, and what I really mean is there’s an FDA approved pill called Truvada® that is currently being used as PrEP.  The pill is prescribed to HIV negative persons as a form of protection against getting HIV. It is 90% effective in preventing the development of HIV in the body, but does not protect against other sexually transmitted infections.  It can be prescribed by most providers, it’s covered by insurance, and there is co-pay and other financial assistance for those with limited or no insurance.

If you’re a sexual adventurer who happens to be living with HIV and haven’t checked in with a provider in 12 months or more, it’s time to get re-linked. HIV care is important for keeping a suppressed viral load; it keeps you healthy and happy, and protects against transmission to your partner. Oh, and guess what hunty!? There are HIV care re-linkage programs with staff specifically there to help you navigate and connect with healthcare providers whether you have insurance or not. You can even get access to programs for financial assistance, housing, and other needs. We can enjoy our nights of unbridled passion with peace of mind knowing our viral load is undetectable. Who knew dropping a load was so important. (giggles)

No matter how we do it, when we do it, how often we do it, or who we do it with, let’s do what’s necessary to enjoy sex with less worry.

Protect, Respect, and Get Checked.

After the horrible events that happened at Pulse, reports came out that its owner, Barbara Poma, had decided to sell the building for $2.25 million to the city of Orlando so it could be turned into a memorial for the 49 lives that were taken back in June 12.

However, the Orlando Sentinel now reports that Poma has backed out of the sale, opting instead to decide on the fate of the building herself.

In a news conference held outside the club, Poma explained her decision to back out of the deal.

“This decision truly came just from my heart and my passion for Pulse, and everything it’s meant to me and my family for the last 12 years since its inception,” she said. “So I think the struggle was you know, letting it go, and it’s just something I could not come to grips with.”

The decision comes after some controversy over the $2.25 million asking price for the property. Two of the city commissioners, Tony Ortiz and Jim Gray, had objected to it, much to the consternation of District 4 Commissioner Patty Sheehan.

For her part, Poma says that the disagreements and the City Council’s public debate over her asking price was not the factor that pushed her towards backing out from the proposed sale of the site.

She tells the Orlando Sentinel: “Everyone’s entitled to their opinion and their feelings but, for me, it wasn’t about the real estate and the appraisal, it was about the emotion, what happened here.”

While Poma still has no concrete plans for the site, part of the money being raised by the non-profit called the onePULSE Foundation will be set aside for a “permanent memorial at the existing site of Pulse Nightclub.”

Poma first opened the bar in 2004 in memory of her brother John, who had AIDS and died in 1991.

If the comments on our earlier blog post “Dating : 7 Reasons Why Dating Older Men Is Hot”  are any indication, the topic of age is still a touchy subject in the gay community. Both sides have a lot to say about each other, and they aren’t always complementary.

One of the comments on the article, for instance, declares that they wouldn’t “touch a Millennial with a ten foot pole. Self-centered, ADHD to the max, drug-addicted, who knows WHAT panoply of bugs they carry.” Down the comment thread, other people called them “immature”, “brainwashed”, “boring”, and “leeches”.

The millennials are giving as good as they’re getting, though. One commenter disputed most of the seven reasons mentioned in the article, saying that he’s met “plenty of older men that have very little to talk about and can’t hold a conversation to save their life, at least not in person.” Another said that “these older guys don’t know where the hell they are going, they get with younger so they feel younger but usually have to pay for it”.

And then there are the magical ones who have found a connection with guys several years their junior or senior. One commenter shares “I love my old man. He cares about me more genuinely than any young [one] I have been with. He’s invested in my happiness. And may I debunk the theory that older men don’t want or avoid healthy sexual relationships. His libido is stronger than mine!”

With the subject of age being such a touchy one and prone to either turn off someone or start an argument, have you ever considered lying about your age online? Did it work out for you? What happens if the other person wants to see up? Share your stories with us in the comments section below!

Through the course of her career, Lady Gaga hasn’t made her support of the LGBTQ community a secret. Beyond the outrageous outfits that always draws a titter, Gaga has been active in so many other ways.

For instance, Gaga was recently shown on the Today Show paying a surprise visit to New York City’s Ali Forney Centre in Harlem, which is the largest shelter for homeless LGBTQ youth in the city. Gaga brought along gifts with her, which understandably brought on the waterworks from some of the teens.

“These children are not just homeless or in need, many of them are trauma survivors,” Gaga explains in a video broadcast on TODAY. “They’ve been rejected in some type of way. My own trauma in my life has helped me to understand the trauma of others.”

Of course, this hasn’t been the first time that Gaga has advocated for the LGBT community.

Gaga has worked together with Cyndi Lauper and MAC Cosmetics to launch a line of lipstick under their supplementary cosmetic line, Viva Glam. More than $202 million were raised from the sales of those Gaga-endorsed Viva Glam lipstick and lip gloss, and the money was used towards fighting HIV and AIDS.

When Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was still in effect, Gaga went to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards with four gay and lesbian former members of the United States Armed Forces who had been unable to serve openly because of the policy. At the time, Gaga also urged fans to contact their senators to overturn the policy.

Gaga was also at a vigil held in Los Angeles for victims of the attack at the gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando. She read aloud the names of the 49 people killed in the attack, and delivered a speech as well.

How do you feel about this latest charitable effort from Lady Gaga?

As the inauguration for president-elect Donald Trump and vice-president-elect Mike Pence draw closer and closer, more and more people are finding creative ways to show their contempt for arguably one of most divisive people to ever assume power in the White House.

For instance, people living in the Chevy Chase neighborhood of Washington D.C. have taken to displaying rainbow Pride flags on their porches and lawns. Why? Because vice-president elect Mike Pence is currently renting a $6,000-a-month home in the neighborhood.

The flags started coming up on lawns and porches last Tuesday and was first noticed by ABC 7 reporter Suzanne Kennedy, who mentioned in a tweet that the flags were “a symbolic message”.These “protest” flags come only two weeks after Pence was booed by the audience in a staging of the Broadway hit “Hamilton”. The vice-president was also respectfully addressed by the cast of “Hamilton”, who asked him to “work on behalf of all of us”.

That the residents of Pence’s temporary home are against him should come as no surprise, as DC was one of the places were Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton bested Trump. That they are choosing to do their protesting with rainbow Pride flags comes from the many anti-LGBT stances that Pence has taken over the course of his political life.

Pence, for instance, is a believer of controversial conversion therapy. His policy against needle exchange programs and his slashing pf public health funding during his time as governor of Indiana also led to a massive HIV outbreak in his state.

Both Pence and Trump have also ran on a Republican platform that defines marriage as between one man and one woman”, and Trump’s transition team is headed by “traditional marriage” defender Ken Blackwell. Just like Pence, Blackwell believes in conversion therapy, and is also a member of anti-LGBTQ group Family Research Council.

How do you guys feel about this move by Mike Pence’s neighbors? Is this something you’d do? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!

Testosterone is what makes a man, a man. Increasing it builds muscle, burns belly fat and takes a lagging libido from afternoon delight, to breakfast in bed. However, The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism recently discovered that men who were born more recently have consistently lower testosterone levels – lower than our beard-bearing fathers, even lower than our wood-chopping Granddads.

In fact, today’s man’s testosterone levels are at their lowest level in recorded history.

Even more startling, iron-clad research now proves that for every extra ounce of body fat men have, more testosterone becomes locked up and completely unusable. It’s a never ending downward spiral that becomes nearly impossible to break. Your belly just keeps getting bigger and bigger, while more and more testosterone becomes unavailable.

That’s why scientists now know that waist circumference is the #1 predictor of low testosterone in men.

It should be no coincidence that body fat levels in men have been on a steep, dangerous rise, along with millions of prescriptions written to eradicate sexual performance problems.

So to quickly recap, modern men are not only producing less testosterone, our bodies are also locking down almost 95% of the testosterone we have. It’s a lose-lose situation.

On the bright side, making a few changes to your nutrition can assist you with your testosterone troubles.

The Journal of Applied Physiology recently reported that guys consuming a diet containing 40% fat can help your body start producing 15-20% More Testosterone!

5 Foods you MUST eat to skyrocket testosterone production quickly, safely, and naturally. 

1. Red Meat

Beef is definitely your number one protein choice when it comes to building lean muscle and boosting testosterone! This is no wimpy chicken breast; beef has a high content of muscle building creatine and BCAAs, more than any other food. Beef is also packed with carnitine – which assists in fat metabolism, and is a source of the anti-catabolic agent CLA. Beef contains iron, which drives oxygen delivery to muscles; zinc and magnesium, which are needed to ignite protein synthesis, jack-up testosterone production and stimulate muscle growth.

2. Whole Eggs

Whole eggs are full of the good fats, protein, vitamins and minerals. But the important part here – they also have cholesterol, which in this case is a good thing for increasing testosterone. Here’s why: saturated fats contain cholesterol, and cholesterol is what your body uses to make testosterone. The key to this secret is eating the right amount on a daily basis. Too little and your testosterone levels drop to down to girly amounts. But too much and you begin risking your health.

3. Tuna

Although it may not be the best tasting protein source, the Vitamin D content goes without question. A 3 oz can contains 50% of your RDA of Vitamin D and not only that, a can of tuna can boost testosterone. A study at Graz Medical University, Austria – found it slashed levels of libido-killing chemical Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG).

4. Avocado

This powerhouse fruit contains the building blocks for testosterone – Vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K, omega-3′s, potassium, folic acid, and cholesterol. Although dense in calories, the avocado contains mostly good fats – monounsaturated and is a good source of glutathione – a powerful antioxidant that helps to speed the recovery process. This fruit makes the perfect addition to any meal and can also be mixed with your favorite protein supplement for a mouth watering pudding!

5. Cruciferous Vegetables

Green vegetables may not be at the top of your food list, but they should be! Dark green, cruciferous vegetables can help you hold onto more testosterone because they contain a compound called indole-3-carbinol (DIM or 3,3-Diindolymethane) that metabolizes and removes excess estrogen from your body – so you build Chiselled Pecs, NOT Chubby Lumps. Choose from broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, collard greens, kale, and brussels sprouts.

Now Here’s How to More Than DOUBLE Your #1 Master Male Hormone

Now, while 15-20% more testosterone would make noticeable changes to your appearance and libido… what if there was a research proven trick to increase your free testosterone levels by 434%, so you can build muscle and burn fat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without having to eat expensive, specific, hard to find foods, in exact measured amounts?

And what if it only takes a measly 30 short seconds a day to implement?

Is that something you might be interested in?

Hi, guys!

We are thrilled to announce that our fundraising efforts yesterday for The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF) have gathered a total of $3,355. A4A is rounding it to $5,000 and as aforementioned, we’ll donate this amount today to The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation for the benefit of the people afflicted with HIV and AIDS.

Apart from supporting various organizations dedicated to providing care and services to people with HIV/AIDS, ETAF also provides funding for “HIV prevention education and advocacy programs throughout the world, including existing organizations creating new and innovative techniques that help spread awareness of HIV prevention and treatment to targeted communities.” A4A chose ETAF because the foundation’s operating costs are being paid for by Ms. Taylor’s Trust and the full amount donated to them goes directly to its beneficiaries.

We are overwhelmed by your continued support and we cannot thank everyone enough for your generous spirits. Because of you, our important project has been made possible again this year.

Thank you, again, and we hope to see you next year! We will step it up for next year, stay tuned for what we have in mind!

A4A Team
