Hi, guys! Did you get to watch the Oscars? The ending was reminiscent of Miss Universe 2015 as the show initially announced La La Land as the Best Picture winner instead of Moonlight. Needless to say the unexpected reversal created confusion, shock, and chaos onstage.

Anyway, who did you think were the best dressed men in the red carpet? We thought Josh Dallas, Pharrell Williams, Ryan Gosling, Aldis Hodge, Jackie Chan, Mahershala Ali, Viggo Mortensen, and Andrew Garfield who wore Tom Ford looked gorgeous in their respective tuxedos. Speaking of outfits, some of the stars pinned a blue ribbon on theirs as a way of showing their support for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), a “nonprofit, nonpartisan, legal and advocacy organization devoted to protecting the rights of everyone in America.”

For the 89th Academy Awards, the romantic musical La La Land had 14 Oscar nominations including the best actress, best director, and best original music score. Arrival and gay drama Moonlight on the other hand, garnered eight nominations each.

As aforementioned, Moonlight took home the Best Picture award. It stars Trevante Rhodes, Ashton Sanders, Mahershala Ali, and Alex Hibbert tells the story of a young black gay man named Chiron and his challenging life in Miami. The win is historic because it is the first LGBTQ film ever to earn Best Picture in the history of the Academy Awards. Watch its trailer below.

Gay songwriter Benj Pasek on the other hand, won Best original song “City of Stars” for La La Land which he co-wrote with Justin Paul.

I Am Not Your Negro (Raoul Peck, 2017), which is based on gay author James Baldwin’s unfinished book Remember This House lost to O.J.: Made in America for the best documentary feature.

It’s been close to a week since the Trump administration withdrew Obama-era guidelines on how schools should accommodate transgender students, and celebrities who are transgender or related to someone who is transgender have made their thoughts known.

Just recently, actress and activist Laverne Cox spoke by phone to The View about her thoughts on this new Trump order, as well as the upcoming Supreme Court case of transgender teen activitist Gavin Grimm. Grimm was a guest on The View when Cox called in.

“Bathroom access really is not about bathrooms…They’re trying to make sure that these bathroom laws are about whether trans people can exist in a public space,” Cox pointed out. “That is what this is about. This is not a states’ rights issue, it’s a civil rights issue.”

Grimm also pointed out that “when you leave decisions on civil rights up to states, it happens for a very long time that people don’t have civil rights.”

There has also been pushback from celebrities who are ostensibly Trump supporters. Trump’s most prominent transgender supporter, Caitlyn Jenner, tweeted “Well @realDonaldTrump, from one Republican to another, this is a disaster. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me.”

The tweet also included a video, which you can watch below.

While Cox and Grimm’s thoughts on the matter have been lauded, Jenner has had a harder time of it, if Twitter responses are any indication. Numerous people have pointed out that Jenner should have expected this from Trump since the campaign and not have aligned herself with him.

Jackie Evancho, second place winner of the fifth season of America’s Got Talent and arguably the biggest name to perform during Trump’s inauguration, also asked to have a meeting with Trump to talk about transgender rights. Evancho has a transgender sister named Juliet.

Talking to CNN, Juliet echoed Grimm’s words, saying “It needs to be on a federal level because if it’s not and it’s left in states’ hands, then we are going to have this many states saying one thing, and this many states saying another.”

“It’s just going to divide America more than it already is,” Jackie added. “We’re trying to work to piece America together again.”

On a positive note, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said that Trump would “welcome” a meeting with Evancho.

How do you feel about the decision to let transgender rights be resolved by the states rather than the federal government? Share your thoughts with is in the comments below.

While things have definitely changed since the 80s when it comes to HIV, there are still some areas where the fights against the disease could still see some improvement.

For instance, a recent report by the Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC) revealed that rates of infection among young gay and bisexual men have been increasing, despite the overall decrease in HIV infection among the general population.

The report, which was conducted over a six-year period, showed that the rates of infection among gay and bisexual men ages 25 to 34 rose by 35 percent in 2014, from 7,200 to 9,200. Infection among Latino gay and bisexual males of all ages increased by 20 percent, from 6,100 to 7,300.

The report also revealed that “gay and bisexual men aged 13 to 24 accounted for an estimated 92% of new HIV diagnoses among all men in their age group and 27% of new diagnoses among all gay and bisexual men.” Of the people diagnosed with AIDS, 54 percent of people them were gay and bisexual men.

This rise of infection among gay and bisexual men is attributed by the report to a number of factors, one of which is through unsafe sex. The CDC points out that “most gay and bisexual men acquire HIV through having anal sex with an HIV-positive person without using a condom or without taking daily medicine to prevent HIV called pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) or without their partner taking medicine to treat HIV called antiretroviral therapy (ART).”

In a press release, Dr. Eugene McCray, director of the CDC’s Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention said, “High-impact prevention strategies must continue to be developed and implemented at the state and local levels to accelerate progress. That means more testing to diagnose infections, increasing the proportion of people with HIV who are taking HIV treatment effectively and maximizing the impact of all available prevention tools.”

What are your thoughts on these new statistics? Why do you guys think unsafe sex practices continue to proliferate in the community, despite the dangers it poses? Share your comments with us below.

Much has been written about Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the past. He’s perhaps easily the most charismatic if not the most popular politician in this time. He is best known for his compassion; promotion on diversity and inclusiveness in terms of gender and race; and he is also outspoken regarding his stance on global issues such as climate change and refugee crisis.

It is therefore, not surprising that he is winning hearts but this also made him open to the public eye. Everything about Trudeau is easily noticed—his empathy, his gorgeous smile, his haircut style, his affable nature, his blue eyes, his handsome face which, by the way, earned him the moniker “real-life Prince Eric.” We even know when his birthday is (December 25) as well as his astrological sign (Capricorn). We see pictures and videos of Trudeau boxing, jogging, dancing, playing sports with children, attending pride festivals with his family to name a few.

It is therefore, not surprising anymore when a picture of his backside had gone viral, inspiring a long discussion on twitter.

 

Check out some of the response the photo had elicited below:

Katy Perry takes us to an amusement park called Oblivia in her music video for her newest single titled Chained to the Rhythm. 

The colorful video however, is in stark contrast to the song’s danceable tune and lyrics that is riddled with irony. It contains lines such as, “Are we crazy?/Living our lives through a lens/Trapped in our white picket fence/Like ornaments/So comfortable, we’re living in a bubble, bubble/So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble”

Watch the video below which has already garnered over 8.3M views as of this writing.

Chained to the Rhythm urges listeners to be critical thinkers by seeing beyond their own happy place and see the world—the situation—for what it truly is. While the theme is applicable to any real life situations and various other life issues, critics are calling Chained to the Rhythm a “cultural and politically-charged song.”

Perry said in an interview with Access Hollywood that Chained to the Rhythm is meant to “start conversations and pose a question in our mind.” She proceeded to encourage everyone to listen to each other (to family and otherwise), to consider both sides of an argument, because that is the only way for us to achieve unity.

Chained to the Rhythm is reportedly co-written by Sia. It features Skip Marley, Bob Marley’s grandson, and is currently No. 4 on Billboard’s Hot 100. With 108,000 downloads on its first week, it debuted at No. 3 on Digital Song Sales and No. 15 on Streaming Songs at 14.7 million.

What do you think about Katy Perry’s new song, guys? Do you like it? Let us hear your thoughts on the comment section below.

Hi, guys! Happy Wednesday! For me, nothing beats the sand, sun, and Saint Martin’s magnificent view to start my week. What about you? We hope that your week had a good start.

In any case we are sharing this video over at Facebook of two men doing yoga in the wilds, in kilts mind you, and it is creating waves online. Said video has garnered over 17 million views as of this writing and let me tell you it’s more than the stunning backdrop of nature or the guys’ amazing display of power, strength, and grace. And muscles, let’s not forget that. Lol. Watch them below to find out why.


The guys are reportedly Mr. Scotland 2016 Tristan Cameron-Harper and Finlay Thomas Wilson—a yoga teacher from Dundee, Scotland.

A separate video of Mr. Wilson is going viral. His yoga buddy in this video is his dog Amaloh, now dubbed as The Yoga Dog. The video talks about the heartwarming story of their meeting in Sri Lanka but I have a feeling the netizens are checking out the video for an entirely different reason altogether.


Can’t get enough of Finlay and Tristan? Check them out here and here. Don’t forget to follow our Facebook account, Twitter, my Instagram and A4A Instagram account as well for more hotties like Finlay and Tristan.

Have a wonderful week, guys! Cheers!

As much as pornography would have us think otherwise, the truth is not all gay couple engage or even like anal sex. The authors of the 2008 book “Psychology Applied to Modern Life: Adjustment in the 21st Century” revealed that in an internet survey of MSM (men who have sex with men) across Europe, it was shown that “oral sex was most commonly practised, followed by mutual masturbation, with anal intercourse in third place”.

It’s easy to understand why this is the case. Anal sex requires a lot of preparation — from douching to lubing to making sure that you don’t hurt yourself in the process. It’s a lot to worry about, so it’s also not a surprise that not a lot of bottoms can maintain an erection or have an orgasm while having anal sex.

To quote Michael M. Ross’ Psychopathology and Psychotherapy in Homosexuality, “Most men seem to accept that stimulation from receptive anal intercourse alone is unlike to result in an orgasm.”

But that’s not to say it can’t be achieved. After all, the best way to reach and stimulate the prostate is through anal activity. And there’s no shortage of people who will tell you that an orgasm achieved through prostate stimulation is much more intense, long-lasting, and probably make you bask in feelings of ecstasy afterwards.

So, here’s some questions for all of you Adam4Adam members. Have you ever had an orgasm from anal sex? If you have, help out those who’ve never experienced it and tell us how you achieved it! What tips can you give your fellow Adam4Adam members? Share it with us in the comment section below!

This season’s biggest trend for men is inspired by the ocean. Everything related to to it, whether it is boats, fish, turtles, shells, red/navy stripes, white color, starfish, nets, navy camo, blue denim, white shoes, navy/white stripes etc. Navy double-breasted blazers are worn over everything, pants are cropped, accessories are also fun and fresh, sandals are bold and bright, shirts are wide and printed and the collar-camp is everywhere (notice the collar on the shirt below, that’s what we call a collar-camp).

Below are some of my favorites for the hot season, they are designer items so they are very pricy and just as a reference. You will be able to buy similar styles everywhere like Zara, H&M, Club Monaco, J.Crew and other affordable stores around the country. I don’t suggest spending hundreds on one piece unless it is a bag, a jacket, a blazer or shoes. You can carry these to the next couple of seasons so they are worth the investment, but T-shirts, sweaters and cotton pants are usually discolored or you simply get tired of them…So I suggest you buy affordable ones.

Tell me if you like that trend and if you think you’ll buy items from that trend? It is my personal favorite trend. Even when it’s not trendy, I dress in navy and white all the time. I’ll try to incorporate a bit of red to make it fresh this season. For me this trend is like a classic one it comes back almost every spring. Perfect timing for me to use that trend because I’m in St. Martin in the Caribbean right now so I’ll try to post photos of me on my Instagram, so follow me. FYI, I will keep on posting on the blog next week even if I’m off, I need to keep you guys busy reading… Have a good week!

Dave
