The Striking Sexual Similarities of Gay and Straight Men

by Ogi Ogas, Ph.D.
in A Billion Wicked Thoughts

I'm a survivor first, a capitalist second, and a whole bunch of other shit after that.

—Lafayette, gay character on True Blood

There's a lot of fear, discomfort, and ignorance about gay sexuality. This leads to all manner of misconceptions about what actually turns gay men on, leading to misdirected notions about the gay brain and misguided phobias about gay influences.

That Look You Give



I got to be the most imperfect person you have

ever found yourself partnered with. I have so many

faults that I guess it would be right

for you to feel like your boyfriend is kinda

special...

The Bible is Not the Word of God

So far in this series covering the misconceptions of the religion of Christianity I have spoken about the meaning of being a Christian and about what God is. I sat for a long time thinking about what is the next logical conversation to start in this series. 

This is probably the most difficult blog for me to write. While it’s not my intent to offend, I know that some may take offense. I write this with sincere love and appreciation for all who will read this. My intent is that those willing will be freed from the chains that bind them, that you will come to know the truth and be made free.

M3 & Brutal Lynx Presents: DOMA.. Prop 8... WE WON!

IF you don't know, now you do and I am sooooo excited.

Clarification: Prop 8's ruling meaning does not affect the other 35 states.. but the ruling does mean that any state that tries to ban will shut down. So they may as well just make it legal.

Nerd Bear Preview: Google Glass

I almost had an nerdgasm when my partner told me about the newest Google invention. Google Glass, a computerized pair of glasses that can navigate your surroundings, use the internet, make phone calls, tell you the best places to eat, and much much more, is only about year away from hitting stores. Google has been making majors strides to be on top of their game while competing with major tech companies. but Google Glass will likely surpass our imagination of what real technology is and how we see the world as we know it. This divice seems more at home in a Star Trek movie than your local Best Buy. So all you tech nerds, video/film geeks, and Internet fiends set your obsolete technology down, put on some soft music, and tell your old tech they are a piece of shit and you're leaving them for Google Glass. They won't even be mad at you when they see the level of upgrade you just made.

Down To The Horse (Excerpt)

This is an excerpt of a novel I have been working on tentatively titled, “Down To The Horse.” These are the very first paragraphs of a story that follows the descent of a young man named Dustin who winds up losing everything and in the process realizes the one thing he really needs to survive. Here is a brief look into his doomed first day on the job at the “Blues House,” a world famous music venue on the Sunset Strip. (And yeah… I’m going to change the name… at the time when I wrote this I didn’t think it was that obvious but yeah… SUPER  obvious…)

Super Moon



So summer is here and it's officially time to party. It seems like this general euphoria doesn't just pertain to the jolly blue planet we call home. Earth's one natural satellite seems to be getting into the act. The moon has once again gone super and is wowing crowds everywhere, drunken and sober.

Shemales, Bestiality, and Granny Porn

An analysis of unorthodox sexual searches.
by Ogi Ogas, Ph.D. in A Billion Wicked Thoughts

This post is a response to The strange new science behind "A Billion Wicked Thoughts" by Stephen Snyder, M.D.

When people hear about some of the popular yet unconventional sexual interests described in our research—such as shemales, grannies, and bestiality—they usually respond with one of these reactions:
Unlike me, fans of those interests are deviants!
Unlike me, fans of those interests are sex addicts!
Like me, those people aren't really interested in that stuff—they're merely curious, like visiting a circus freakshow.

A Grown Up Kind of Love


Everybody loves recognition, but when it comes to my writing, I only seem to get attention when I piss people off. I like a good argument. I don't want to hurt people's feelings. I hate it when people take intellectual arguments personally, but to engage in a discussion about what is true and real has to be one of my favorite endeavors. So the blog has truly widened my opportunities to have intelligent arguments about issues. Unfortunately, it's also gotten me into a lot of trouble that I'd love to avoid, but I find myself incapable of doing so. I think it's because I'm stubborn. I don't like to lose, especially when I know I'm right. M3 has been one big learning experience, the greatest of which to date has been how to give up trying to convince someone of the truth.

Learning How to Live Intentionally


It was recently asked in a hangout by our editor, what is the biggest lesson that life has taught us. The answer I gave at the time will appear in the hangout series, but it got me to thinking about what we can share with those who are coming behind us. Well, the biggest thing I've learned is that I'm co-creator with God himself and that I have the ability to change my experience in life in a more intentional and deliberate way. Many years ago I came across the law of attraction through an Oprah show segment (Yeah Oprah).

Hangout Series: Coming Out and Maturity

We all have our stories about coming out, but not everyone is ready to come out or tell their's yet. So in our series we wanted to bring up the topic to encourage those who have not found it within themselves to tell their story. Breeze and Lynx talk about their very different experiences. This isn't about trying to get people to come out if they don't want to. It's about getting people to be who they want to be. It's about being true to yourself and knowing that you are not alone. Subscribe to our YouTube channel and comment on the video to get in on the conversation.

Race Is a Social Construct

Walter White. Chairman of the NAACP. Black dude.
(The Walter White Project)
By Ta-Nehisi Coates
from The Atlantic

Andrew Sullivan and Freddie Deboer have two pieces up worth checking out. I disagree with Andrew's (though I detect some movement in his position). Freddie's piece is entitled "Precisely How Not to Argue About Race and IQ." He writes:

The problem with people who argue for inherent racial inferiority is not that they lie about the results of IQ tests, but that they are credulous about those tests and others like them when they shouldn't be; that they misunderstand the implications of what those tests would indicate even if they were credible; and that they fail to find the moral, analytic, and political response to questions of race and intelligence.

The Hangout Series: Breeze and Lynx on Interracial Couples

We've had a lot of interesting feedback from our Hangout series. We have a lot of issues that we talk about from tech and movies to religion and psychology.  One of the most contentious issues has been race. When I post the first video in this series I got quite a bit of feedback about people's experiences in the bear community from all perspectives. From those who felt like white men treat blacks like slaves, to those who found acceptance in the bear community after feeling awkward for no reason. Make sure to check the YouTube Channel to subscribe. Leave a comment and get in on the discussion.

Gorgeous Dirty Glances: My Experience in Gay Clubs

I should have talked about this topic a long time ago. It's an experience that I often go through when I'm out at clubs. It's something that I don't understand fully, but I'd like to share it with you.

The Scenario: You're at the club and you're enjoying yourself with your friends. In the middle of sipping on a drink you notice a handsome guy glance at you. The eye contact between you is half a second at most.  Then he frowns. As he turns his head he rolls his eyes at you in disgust. What do you feel?  Rejection? A little sadness?

Mr Marcus Sentenced To Jail

This story about Mr. Marcus spreading syphilis shocked a lot of people, across the country, and I was thinking, really? This story did not shock me in the slightest. People are in an uproar about it. I mean don't get me wrong, I feel sorry for the people who may have contracted the disease, but this is nothing new in the porn industry. Over the years, there have been many diseases that have frightened our favorite porn stars. The industry has made it clear that stars must be tested on a regular basis before "acting" in a scene, but apparently some directors and producers have let that rule slide to make money, in my opinion at least.

Tallulah, The Original Gangsta

Originally posted in The Monthly Breeze

While doing some research on a project that I am involved with, I came across several articles dealing with the bisexual practices of an immense number of celebrities both past and present. And while there was a certain amount of adolescent blushing, giggling and awe at my initial knowledge that Marilyn Monroe and Joan Crawford actually did it once upon a time, there was also this feeling, reading story after story of lesbian and homosexual trysts in Hollywood, that maybe I and the rest of the modern world might have an unhealthy preoccupation with this whole idea of homosexuality and homosexual rights.

Musings of a Philosophical Bear:

On Science, Homosexuality, and the New Religion


Scientific discovery has necessarily moved us away from old religious views. Even those of us who profess to be Christians do so while making huge modifications to the traditional Christian worldview. While some fundamentalists will still argue for creationism, the widespread acceptance of evolution demonstrates the impotence of religious texts to explain natural phenomena. Scientific advances in astrophysics, neurology, and genetics with further challenge us to reconsider sacred texts amid a flood of new facts about the world around us. Faith still remains. This is because the greatest questions about life have nothing to do with the external world and everything to do with our subjective experience. What does science have to say about how best to live? Not much. While science has played a major role in the development of our spiritual beliefs, nothing has moved our understanding of Christian theology more than homosexuality.

HIV Positive and Undetectable: What Does It Really Mean?


Breeze started a conversation about HIV/AIDS that M3 is committed to continuing. Check his post The Second Coming Out about the stigma and ignorance that persist decades after we learned about the virus and how to treat it. 

by Tyler Curry

It is impossible to have a modern conversation about HIV and HIV stigma without having the term "undetectable" used, misused and abused. Those involved in HIV advocacy certainly have strong opinions on how the term that refers to an HIV-positive person's undetectable viral load should be used (and who is using it incorrectly).

Kenoki's Travel Guide to Gay Dating Cyberspace

Misrepresentation is running rampant nowadays in gay cyberspace, but I'd like to share my opinion about the gay dating sites and apps that we are using. I have browsed many a profile. Not necessarily looking for anything, but out of sheer curiosity. I wanted to see what these men are saying in their profiles. What I've come to theorize is that men are mostly looking for the next best sexual encounter. Not love, not a gym partner, not even a lover, but down-right sex. Here's how I chop them up. I could be wrong about these men, but this is how I see it.

Nerd Bear On Technology: The Rolltop

Technology is constantly changing and developing. Discovering new ideas on how to make things better, stronger, and faster is all about breaking the expectations we've imposed on ourselves. We've become more advanced as a society because nerds like me are never satisfied with what has already been done. I'm addicted to technology. I just see what cool things are possible and continue to explore what new and amazing things we, as humans, can come up with. So since I had tech on the brain, I decided to do some research on what new gadgets will bless us in the future. I came across the Rolltop...yes, I said the Rolltop! It's a brand new style of laptop and tablet rolled into a tube. I was floored to see this beauty.

The Second Coming Out

Originally posted in the Monthly Breeze 


I was a preteen when I first heard of AIDS. By this time I had already accumulated enough “evidence” to support the theory that “faggots” were the absolute scum of the earth whom were far removed from my plebeian housing project surroundings and I could never be one. I remember when AIDS first hit my world view; it was a moral dilemma more so than a medical one. The news wasn’t that people were mysteriously dying but that gay men were mysteriously dying and the mystery that surrounded their death in my neighborhood was automatically tethered to those guys’ sexual proclivities.

Images, The Church, and My Deliverance

It's Just an Image

Kayne West
Recently, there was a picture of Kanye West portraying himself as Jesus, resurfacing on Facebook. My first reaction to the picture was, "Wow. How creative to send out a message of controversy, but not of deity. A symbolism of the ridicule that Jesus faced, likening it to his own experience." I didn’t see anything wrong with it. However, I suffered a backlash from certain people because a few saints decided it was rude and disrespectful. Why? I still didn’t have a clear understanding.
