A Public Golden Shower in a Very Crowded Place!

Meet me at the beach, down near Lifeguard tower 33, I said.  “Right there on the main strip?” he queried, fear in his voice.  “Yep right there on the beach,” I insisted. It was the perfect place to meet him.  I was going to be there anyway.  I have been practicing at 6:00 am in … Continue reading A Public Golden Shower in a Very Crowded Place!

I’m Gonna Post it to Craigslist

I’m in San Diego for a few more months.  I’m in and out of town as often as I can get out.  I’m not happy here.  I’m a hardcore pervert living in a conservative environment.

Thanksgiving is when you find out what your family is made of

The night before thanksgiving I was settling down for a bottle of wine and 30 library books when the phone rang.  It was a young relative in tears.  Seems this person was chased out by zirs father in a tirade of bigoted, homophobic slander. I drove to the suburbs to rescue this teen, certain that … Continue reading Thanksgiving is when you find out what your family is made of

Thanks to the massive budget cuts that the California state school system is in the midst of, I had a ten-day furlough season.  I thought I could stick around and take care of the things I need to take care of or I could head to New England.  You might know how much I loathe … Continue reading Three Pissing Scenes

Man Fits

Lately it seems that a lot of full-grown men feel inspired to yell at me.  This is both sad and pathetic.  As an activist working to remove the gender binary I can see these more prevalent man fits as being a sign of the changing times.  But in a world that says it is not … Continue reading Man Fits

“Men’s” Sexuality

I am sitting in a coffee house in San Francisco.  I’m reading Foucault and sipping matte but switching to Guinness.  Usually, in socal, when people see what I am reading they back away intimidated.  Here I get “wow – that is heavy stuff” and a conversation about sociology, drugs, yoga, and politics.  The people behind … Continue reading “Men’s” Sexuality
