Actually, one doesn't do that and expect different results. One does it because he knows the result, and is anticipating it. Much the way a straight man does it with a woman, and does it because he knows the result.......pleasure.  (Friday Aug 19 | post #21)

What's that old saying? Oh, yeah........Albert Einstein is broadly credited with exclaiming “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”.  (Thursday Aug 18 | post #10)

39% of gay men say majority of the sex they have is unpro...

I don't know about other gay men, since I don't do surveys, but my husband and I have not had "protected " sex in over 41 years. We had a very frank and open conversation about it when we first got together. We decided that it was important to not infect each other with STDs, so we agreed that should either of us have sex outside of our marriage, that we would reveal that to each other, without recriminations, so that we could take whatever steps would be necessary. Neither of us has had reason to worry about it, tho, cause we have remained monogamous. And that agreement was before HIV and AIDS became known. We completely trust each other, and have had discussions about it in the interim. If anyone doesn't have this type of agreement, then woe be unto them if they continue to practice unsafe sex. Just another reason we need sex ed in all schools, beginning in elementary school and continuing through high school. By the time one moves on to higher ed, it should be thoroughly known.  (Thursday Aug 11 | post #22)

I suppose sitting in a prison in Leavenworth gives one too much time to sit and browse the GLBTQ websites.  (Jul 21, 2016 | post #3)

LGBT history lessons approved for California classrooms

So, to give equal time, all hetero mass-murderers should be taught in school, also? Is your aim to educate children into becoming mass-murderers? Wow, you're twisted.  (Jul 16, 2016 | post #5)

J.J. Abrams 'really proud' of gay Sulu in 'Star Trek Beyond'

Of course, you always have the option, like I do, to not bother with these discussions about the sexuality of a fictional character. We may not care one way or the other, but I am sure die-hard fans of the series care a great deal. I hesitate to think of the odd things you may be interested in.  (Jul 15, 2016 | post #2)

And your point is? Someone was a mass murderer in the 15th century, and what?; you are projecting that into the 21st century to say it is very rare, considering how many hetero murderers there are? I agree.  (Jul 15, 2016 | post #2)

It depends upon if your sex partner is a loving and caring person, or just a rutting sexual opportunist. Even the very first time can be enjoyable and pain free if the top truly cares about the one being penetrated.  (Jul 12, 2016 | post #49)

Some years ago a "gay Republican" would not have even blinked on my radar. These days it seems like a contradiction of terms.  (Jul 12, 2016 | post #1)

Really? Then if the following stats are even close to true, you would have us believe that the vast majority of men who are 80 years or older have engaged in anal intercourse. Since gay men are such a small proportion of the population, that would mean that an awful lot of straight men are engaging in that activity. You should be checking out your male friends, and make sure you don't bend over in their presence. Enlarged prostate, occurs in 50 percent of men age 51 to 60, 69 percent of men age 61 to 70, and in 90 percent of men age 80 or older. An enlarged prostate, also called benign prostatic hyperplasia, is the non-cancerous growth of the prostate that often occurs as men age.

Well, I guess we could go jousting with windmills, but since it is not high on my list of priorities, I think I'll let it go. I have more important issues to deal with, such as my enlarged prostate :-)  (Jul 11, 2016 | post #37)

In what way are you concerned? Are you affected by it, by any chance, or is it just a mental exercise for you? I'm not affected by it, but I'm also in favor of anyone jailed losing their right to vote. After they come out of jail, I would be amenable to them re-gaining that right once they finish any parole they may have to serve.  (Jul 11, 2016 | post #35)

Topix Forum Discontinued

Anything specific I said that you consider an insult? I don't remember it. As to you staying or going, I could not possibly be less concerned. Oh, and nowhere did I order you in any way to leave, so my owning Topix is not even a consideration.  (Jul 8, 2016 | post #74)

To what are you specifically referring? Recently, it has been the conservatives attempting to disenfranchise the elderly, poor, and blacks. Then there is the issue of felons losing their right to vote. Anything else you have on your mind?  (Jul 8, 2016 | post #28)
