Not one of us

Tom Latte on not fitting in. “The bottom line is I don’t feel like I belong in the HIV community as it is represented out there today; I cannot fully embrace the HIV tribe as mine” because it’s such a small part of my life.

 “Obviously, I wasn’t expecting it… I’ll have to think about it.”  These words were uttered at the time of my latest disclosure. They stuck with me for a few days afterwards. Not the ‘I’ll have to think about it’: I know that some people need time to process the information. Not the ‘I wasn’t expecting it…’, although it is a bit dodgier; as if one could tell from just looking into my big blue eyes for two dates. It is the ‘obviously’ coming before that was the

Matt Levine says “I love good weed. It makes the hard times easier, the good times better but it also makes my sofa seem like a good substitute for love.”

Marijuana, masturbation and what’s a lonely man in love with weed, but wanting more, to do?

Part one of two Two and a half weeks into a nasty bout with sinusitis and I haven’t smoked pot since I first noticed the snot coming out of my nose and the sputum from my lungs was green like a watered down pea soup. Ugh!  While blessed with great health despite nearly 30 years of HIV, allergies and sinus problems are my Achilles heel.   Even before my enjoyment of smoking weed added to the problem, I always had trouble with allergies and asthma. Yet this challenge of annual summertime

New PositiveLite.com writer Samantha tackles the topic of how disclosure disproportionally affects the lives of women living with HIV

Women and disclosure - building a safe place

"Each time I have to disclose I get anxious, I experience fear of the unknown, and most times when disclosing to a potential sex partner I am left feeling like damaged goods, hopeless because the rejection that is often an automatic response is based on fear that has no basis due to lack of education about the virus.”   The research In January 2015 the Salamander Trust in partnership with the Department of Reproductive Health and Research at World Health Organization and in consultation

Nobody likes a showoff!

Positively Dating says “I know I blame my HIV status on my subpar dating life. But in reality there are much bigger factors at play that have nothing to do with being positive and everything to do with me being socially awkward”

Nobody likes a showoff!

I know I blame my HIV status on my subpar dating life. But in reality there are much bigger factors at play that have nothing to do with being positive and everything to do with me being socially awkward. It all comes down to one simple fact. I don’t know how to talk to guys I am attracted to. Stupid, I know. There are two things I expected to get better with age -  my complexion (which has it’s good days and bad) and social competency or  the act of talking to men. I am two years shy o

Lots of couples decide to have threesomes to spice up their sex life together. It can be the beginning of a new stage in their sexual relationship or the end of the whole relationship. FS Magzine finds out how to know if three’s company or a crowd.

How to have a threesome

This article previously appeared in FS magazine, a publication of GMSH, here.    Bring up the subject   Bringing up the subject that you want to ask another guy into your bed isn’t an easy thing to do. Talking about fantasies together is a good way to bring the subject up. If he also has fantasies about sex with more than one person, then he’ll be more likely to be up for a threesome. Plus, by telling him it’s one of your fantasies, you are letting him know that you are interested

Another installment in the sex memoires of T.C. Pomeroy

Another installment in the sex memoires of T.C. Pomeroy

Saturday 1130 am – Taking Things Into My Own Hands in a Different Sort of Way  Two emails received about a month ago asked the same thing: " isn’t it time for a T.C. Pomeroy story with actual sex in it?"  While gentle in expressing their frustration over my lack of ‘action’, these emails – one from PositiveLite,com editor Bob Leahy and the other from a straight friend – had been on my mind ever since.  It was time to shake things up.  For most horny gay men in San Francisco

Just too lazy

published: November, 03, 2014 Written by // Brian Finch - Founder Categories // Gay Men, Living with HIV, Population Specific , Sex and Sexuality , Brian Finch

Brian Finch says "Getting laid is so easy, yet I’m too lazy to do it. Even jerking off seems like a bother."

Just too lazy

I used to joke on stage while doing standup to very straight audiences about how easy it is to get laid. “I met this guy and I asked him if he wanted to be a fuck buddy and he said sure. That’s how easy it is and exactly how lazy I am.”  Sport fucking doesn’t seem to be my thing anymore. Looking baqck, I’ve been in more places where I’ve walked in stripped, did it, and then left than I can remember. It’s somewhere in between the fast-food experience of the baths and having a li

Online dating & relationships – the story continues, apparently

If you’ve been following my blogs you’ll know I have written a few times about online dating. This time it’s a different angle on the topic but some things never change. Now there is online dating on Facebook. Seriously, anyone can start up a private page to converse with other people who are into cooking, photography - or hairy bears. Some pages are all-out hook-up and date pages. You have to ask to be added, then you wait; in most cases you get accepted right away. I found one for pe
