Earlier this year, the California Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage and said it was unconstitutional to deny anyone the right to marry.
This pissed many people off, and hence was drafted: Proposition 8. If passed, the proposition would change the California Constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry in California, and new section would be added stating “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”
Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, issued the following statement concerning California’s anti-gay marriage Proposition 8:
As an Internet company, Google is an active participant in policy debates surrounding information access, technology and energy. Because our company has a great diversity of people and opinions — Democrats and Republicans, conservatives and liberals, all religions and no religion, straight and gay — we do not generally take a position on issues outside of our field, especially not social issues. So when Proposition 8 appeared on the California ballot, it was an unlikely question for Google to take an official company position on.
However, while there are many objections to this proposition — further government encroachment on personal lives, ambiguously written text — it is the chilling and discriminatory effect of the proposition on many of our employees that brings Google to publicly oppose Proposition 8. While we respect the strongly-held beliefs that people have on both sides of this argument, we see this fundamentally as an issue of equality. We hope that California voters will vote no on Proposition 8 — we should not eliminate anyone’s fundamental rights, whatever their sexuality, to marry the person they love.
Go Google. Tell ‘em.
If you are in California (or just curious), you should check out more info about Proposition 8 on wikipedia.
I was 14, he was 16. We grew up together, and since puberty he had been trying to get me in bed. I was at his house one day after school when he got a “brilliant idea” look on his face and bolted into the kitchen. I followed behind, and saw him grab a carton of eggs out of the fridge.
He held up an egg and asked, “Wanna put this up your ass?”.
I laughed and said no.
He tried to convince me a few more times before telling me that he would just have to do it himself then.
My buddy pulled down his shorts, squatted, and sucked an egg right up into his asshole.
He then did an awkward crab-walk over to the bathroom and hovered over the toilet.
“Look! I’m a chicken!” he said and he grunted down a bit and released the egg into the toilet with a plop.
He explained that “he just wanted to do it”, and we never really talked about the “I’m a chicken!” incident again. But, this is one of my favorite stories and thought my readers may enjoy it (the story, not an egg in the ass).

Sex In the news recently:
Swinger Club Shut Down from Neighbor Complaints – “Once in a while it sounds like a raccoon dying,”
Verizon Tech Accused Of Making $220K In Sex Calls – Former employee said to have tapped into landlines Of 950 Customers.
I stumbled upon an interesting research paper titled “Pornography, Rape and Sex Crimes in Japan” — If you aren’t familiar with the scope of strange porn that comes out of Japan, check out this wikipedia link.
Then ponder that in Japan, Playboy Magazine was banned (for showing pubic hair) until 1975 and pornography only became commonplace in the 90s. Now rape fantasy figurines are sold publicly next to similar machines selling Pokemon figurines. The rapid changes make for an interesting study on how pornography and rape are related.
Don’t be tricked into paying a membership fee for a dating site only to find out it’s mostly empty. Here we review the top dating /personals sites catering to gay men:
Exclusively Gay Personals / Dating Sites:
Gay.com Personals – The world’s largest gay and lesbian online dating site with over 3.5 million active members (omg!). Member benefits include chat rooms, free adult videos & pics (free pr0n!!!), plus free subscriptions to Out and Advocate magazines.
Gay.Date.com – is another huge online gay personals community. With nifty member features including live chat.
Check out Gay.Date.com
GayFriendFinder boasts a large community offering dating, chat and friendship for gay men.
You can get a basic membership for free, which is worth it… but to get all the features you’ll want to upgrade to a paid membership (which is fairly cheap).
Other Dating Sites with Gay Memberships:
If you’re a switch hitter, or like to mingle with breeders you might also be interested in the following dating sites that aren’t exclusively gay, but do have a large gay membership base:
Lavalife.com connects singles locally through the phone (and also their website, IM, etc…).
They have memberships that cater to gay men, and (I’m guessing) have probably brought more booty calls together than any other online service.
Join Lavalife.com: Get 7 Days FREE
Alt.com If you are looking for a kinky boyfriend, Alt.com might be your answer.
The site is a mixed lot of gay, straight, and everything-in-between… probably the largest selection of bi-curious men I’ve ever seen. Woot!
Plenty of Fish.com – is a completely free dating site. No credit card required. Unfortunatly the site doesn’t also require shirts, shoes or class either, but it’s free.
I can fix computers…shhhh, don’t tell anyone. My friends, their moms, and second-cousins are already lined up out my door. It’s not my job, but have doctored enough PCs to see a pattern.
Internet sex is to computer viruses as real sex is to venereal infections. Rinse and Repeat…or don’t. But, remember this: viewing & downloading random porn on the interweb is like sleeping with random dirty hookers — you never know what you are going to get.
Finding porn on the internet is easy, but finding free sites that aren’t infested with popups, spyware, and viruses is a bit tougher.
Best Free Porn Sites
Here is my list of top places online to safely get your porn fix:
YouPorn.com – It’s the YouTube of porn. ’nuff said. Very easy to navigate, tons of straight, lesbian & gay content. This is my top pic, and personal choice.
PornoTube.com – Much like YouPorn, this site works very similar to youtube.com.
PornHub.com – Another youtubish-clone except it makes dicks bigger.
Fleshbot – x-rated blog with all kinds of sex news, videos, pics and more.
Xtube – Large member-base, tons of gay & straight free vids to watch. Lots of amateur stuff.
MyFreePaySite.com – Tons of free content when you sign up for a free membership. Remember to use a disposable email address when signing up to avoid spam. Personally, I like the other sites on this list because they don’t require you to sign up just to view videos. However, I have a few friends that totally vouch that MyFreePaySite is worth the trouble.
These sites should keep you busy. Dawn, I am speaking to you specifically.
One of my first lovers was a 6’3 Chinese native who visiting the US looking for a graduate college. I remember how nervous he was before getting undressed in front of me the first time, and admitted his anxiety concerned his penis size.
He said that Asians were known to have smaller penises on average compared to the Caucasian and black cock I must have been accustomed to being an American. (this is mostly considered a myth, btw) Anyhow, after convincing my new friend to get naked he revealed an 8 inch wang (we measured it). I told him it was the biggest one I’d ever seen up close (which was true).
This guy had a grand specimen in both length and girth, but still thought he was smaller than average. It turns out average erect penis length (across numerous studies and ethnicities) is between 5 to 6 inches, and average flaccid penis length from 1 to 4 inches.
Penis Length & Girth Data:
A study by the LifeStyles Condom Co. shows that the average length of an erect penis is 5.877 inches with the average girth (circumference) being 4.972 inches. The study involved 300 college-age men vacationing in Mexico over spring break. (I hope they gave away free condoms)
The following graphs illustrate average penis length based on the LifeStyles Survey:
And the data for penis thickness (circumference) from the LifeStyles Survey — showing the average penis girth to be 4.972 inches:
I wonder now if he realizes he is actually in the 90th+ percentile…
How do you measure up? Base to tip, your taint doesn’t count.
What is the average penis size, and do women care? Who has the most sex? How often? What’s the horniest and least horniest countries? Can men give themselves blowjobs? …
We find answers to all these questions and more interesting sexual statistics and facts:
Penis Size – Recent data indicates an average erect penis length is between 5 – 6 inches, with average flaccid penis length ranging from 1 and 4 inches and according to the Kinsey Institute, the biggest erect penis on record measures 13 inches.
Frequency of Sex – 18-29 year olds have sex an average of 112 times per year, 30-39 year olds an average of 86 times per year, and 40-49 year olds an average of 69 times per year.
The French, Greeks, Hungarians were having the most sex, while those in Japan, Hong Kong, and Singapore were the least sexually active according to a Durex Survey in 2004.
In the 2008 Durex survey Greece, Brazil, and Russia topped the list in percentage of respondents claiming to have sex at least weekly, whereas Japan, the US, and Nigera were the at the bottom of the list.
So, although there are some movers and shakers among countries, it appears that Greece is consistently a horny & productive country and the average Japanese citizen not getting much action.
Orgasm Frequency – More experienced lovers are most likely to have an orgasm every time they have sex, with 48% of those in the 35-plus age group claiming to do so, compared to 32% of 16-20 year olds. (Durex Survey 2004)
Sexual Fantasies – How often do men fantasize about sex? Not every 7 seconds like the old wives’s tale suggests. The Kinsey Institute reports that 54% of men think about sex at least every day, 43% think about it a few times a week or month, and 4% once a month or less.
Gay Population – The gay and lesbian communities have long adopted 10% as the portion of the population that is homosexual. However, a series of recent national studies indicate that only about 2-3% of sexually-active men and 1-2% of sexually-active women are currently engaging in same-gender sex. With the largest concentrations of homosexuals located in the large cities (close to 10%).
Masturbation – In a study of undergraduate college students, 98% of men and 44% of women reported having ever masturbated. Are there really that many adult women who have never masturbated? According to the Kinsey Institute, masturbation is more common among white-collar workers than blue-collar workers.
Bonus Stat: Three out of a thousand men (0.3%) are well-hung enough for self-fellatio.

I was reading this issue of sex advice column Savage Love in which a gay reader asks how to go about finding a women willing to stay dressed and watch him masturbate and/or watch him have sex with his partner.
The author, Dan Savage, replies:
Make some lesbian friends…
Lots of dykes watch gay male porn, a phenomenon I would unpack in this space if, um, I had the faintest idea what was up with that. (Ladies? What is up with that?)
Why would dykes like gay porn?
My girlfriend remarked recently that gay porn was hot because they often show a struggle for dominance.
Personally, I watch masturbation & gay porn for the dick. Plus gay men seem to better at screwing, better looking, and shave their bums more than their hetero porn star brothers. Also I don’t have to see boobs or long fingernails (fingernails creep me out). I know, I am such a bad lesbian. Thank goodness for the Kinsey Scale.
I’m not saying all dykes like watching gay porn, but I know a lot of us that do. Some straight women, too. If you have your own reason why you like gay pornography please leave a comment below.
A few links of interest I stumbled upon recently:
A foot that grew a nipple – Wow. Check out this medical paper (with photos) about pseudomamma on the foot. I love saying pseudomamma!
I found the link to this on The Beautiful Kind.com – which is a terrific blog about:
sexuality, kinks, fetishes, BDSM, swinging, polyamory and perversion.
…a 30-something bisexual atheist vegetarian mom located in St. Louis, MO.
