Top 4 Websites for Meeting the Guy of Your Dreams: Gay Guide to Online Dating

Where to meet the man of your dreams: Gay Guide to dating in the digital world

Finding a serious relationship with another gay man can be tough. Sure, we can go to gay clubs, but as you’ve probably noticed, most of the men there are not “relationship material.”

guysmall.jpg

Online dating for gay men has blown up in recent years. I’ve tried meeting other gay men through personal connections (friends of friends often know attractive gay guys), social clubs, and bars. In my experience, online dating is far superior to all of these options.

Having said that, all websites aren’t created equal. Here are the top four websites for finding a great partner:

1. OkCupid

OkCupid is the best free dating website. Unlike some other big dating websites (such as the infamous eHarmony) OkCupid supports gay men.

The large userbase of OkCupid is both a strength and a weakness. It’s easy to find someone near you but it’s sometimes hard to get a response from attractive males since they get so many messages.

OkCupid is completely free. Signing up for an account is worthwhile.

2. Chemistry

Chemistry has a fairly large database and great modern layout.

Chemistry is different than other dating websites because it matches users based on location and a personality test – users don’t search for each other.

It’s a unique concept that is worth trying out. It may help you meet a special someone that would “fall through the cracks” on traditional dating websites.

3. Match

Match costs a monthly fee but I believe it’s worth it. The people on here tend to be more serious about creating a meaningful relationship than other websites.

I’ve found that the men on Match are the hottest out of all four dating websites.

4. Gay Dating

Gay Dating is more geared toward casual encounters. However, the men I’ve met on here have been classier and seem more open to pursuing a long-term relationship than other casual gay dating websites.

What’s Up with the Butt: Anal Sex 101

When it comes to anal sex, we’ve all heard two stories: one from our adventurous friend that says “Oh my god you HAVE to try it! I’ve never came so hard in my life!”

OOORRR… the horror story. “Oh my god it was so painful, I bled and it hurt to sit down for a week.”

butt

Ladies and gentlemen, we’re here to have a frank discussion about anal sex. For so long it has been considered taboo, somewhat dangerous, or something only slutty girls do. We’re going to give you the low-down on why anal play is so popular (it’s one of our fastest growing categories!) and how to go about it safely, comfortably, and (most importantly) pleasurably.

It can be a little daunting; letting someone in your back door that, up until now, was only considered an ‘exit’ hole. Or maybe it’s the stigma that worries you more: Am I going to be a ‘slut’ if I have anal sex? (No, of course not!) Is it going to hurt? Will it be messy? (And by messy, well, you can probably get what we’re hinting at)

Anal sex, done incorrectly, can certainly be painful and potentially messy. But done correctly, it can be extremely liberating, orgasmic, and bonding. Here’s why:

1. It builds a deep, trusting bond between you and your partner. 

If you’re ready to experiment with anal sex, make sure you are comfortable with the other person; it takes a little time, patience, and understanding to get it right. If your relationship has the ability to execute these qualities, you’re in the right market for a little back door fun. Having trust in your partner that he will go at your pace is monumental, and being on the receiving end of that trust is as well. When two people who trust each other try something new, the result is usually a closer, more open and honest relationship. What’s not to love about that?

2. It can be incredibly pleasurable for the woman, not just the man.

Anal sex is not only incredibly arousing because it’s something new and naughty, but it also allows your guy to hit your g-spot from a different angle, resulting in other-worldly, spine-tingling orgasms. If that wasn’t enough to convince you already, you can get a double-whammy of stimulation by also touching your lady bits at the same time. As the Bad Girl’s Bible states, “it leaves you completely free to stimulate inside and outside of your vagina, which can help you to have much more powerful orgasms.” So, just to recap, an orgasm that is a result of clitoral, vagina, and anal stimulation. You can probably guess that it feels nothing short of mind-blowing.

3. It doesn’t have to hurt

One word: LUBE. Lots and lots of lube. This isn’t something you can just throw yourself into. (Or, er, have your guy throw himself into). You need to go slooow, and use a lot of lubricant to make for a smooth ride. Use a water based lubricant, liberally.

It’s also a good idea to try stimulating yourself anally before the fact. Start with a finger and then slowly work up to something a bit bigger, like a vibrator or anal toy. This way, you won’t be surprised by the new sensation when you and your partner get down.

4. It’s liberating!

There’s no better feeling than trying and succeeding in a new experience, especially a sexual one. Sex is something that’s so deeply personal, and when you’re on your A-game you are unstoppable, not just in the bedroom but also in life. It gives you a carefree confidence that is so alluring and captivating, you seem to magnetically attract positive vibes. To boot, conquering a fear is one of the best things you can do for yourself. When you push through the wall of fear, put your trust in someone, and succeed, you set a new standard for yourself and change your life.

See? It doesn’t have to be scary. If you’ve been curious about anal sex and think you and your partner are ready, you should give it a try and find out for yourself what all the buzz is about. There’s just as much fun to be had with booty play as there is with vaginal sex, and just as many playful toys. (Love Beads, anyone?) Educate yourself on the subject so you know what to expect, and then have at it! The world is your bootylicious oyster.

_______________________________________

How closely do you match up with the definition of “pansexual”?

5-7 points

You’re not pansexual

Maybe you are bisexual, gay or straight. Either way, you clearly are interested in people for their gender. Their intellect and aspects of their personality may interest you, but you have more of a traditional view in terms of sex and relationships.

8-11 points

Pan-curious? 

You have a fleeting interest in different types of sexuality. Maybe you have identified as pan before. However, you are kind of just figuring yourself out still.

12-15 points

Truly pan

You’re as pansexual as they come! You are not limited by gender binary in terms of attraction, because you fall for someone for their personality above all else. Love is about being open-minded, so you do not mind doing what is unconventional. Enjoy, and don’t be afraid to be you!

Fleshlight: The Ultimate In Men’s Sex Toys

The Fleshlight is perhaps the most popular brand of male masturbators on the market, and it’s definitely the best known. Although few people would actually confuse the large case with a flashlight, the cases are relatively discreet in person. But it’s what’s inside a Fleshlight that makes it so well-loved!

The Fleshlights are available in three cases:

When you unscrew the cap of the Fleshlight, you’ll see an orifice – vagina, mouth or anus – to penetrate. These are made of Superskin and available in various flesh tones, clear and even blue for alien Fleshlights! This is far from the only way you can customize your Fleshlight, however.

Texture is a main component of your Fleshlight. Do you want it soft, rough, tight or

loose? These are ridges, nubs, tubes and twists. It’s best to view photos of the textures to get an idea of how they differ from one another; however, what you like might surprise you.

Users swear by their favorite Fleshlight texture, and there are even websites and forum threads dedicated to the topic. You’ll find there’s no single “best” texture of Fleshlight.

Some of the most popular textures include:

  • Destroya and Mini-Destroya
  • STU
  • Wonder Wave
  • Lotus and Mini-Lotus
  • Vortex
  • Bi-Hive
  • Super Ribbed
  • Alien

Plus, you can get a masturbator modeled after the anatomy of your favorite porn star. Both Alex Texas (Texas Tornado) and Teagan Presley (Love Humps) have their own internal textures.

There’s even an attachment to connect your Fleshlight to your iPad! If you want an even more intense experience, you can get a sleeve warmer or vibrating attachment for your Fleshlight or mount it in the shower.

The final selling point of the Fleshlight is the suction, which you can control by opening the end opposite of the cap. Combined with just enough personal lubricant – use water-based lube to avoid damaging your toy – your designer Fleshlight can feel like a premium experience. Remember that added suction means added noise, however.

After you’re done with your Fleshlight, remove the inner sleeve and run warm water through it to clean. Make sure to allow it to thoroughly dry before returning it to your case. Fleshlight sells renewing powder, which will help your toy feel like new.

The Amazing Warming Wand

The warming wand heats up your pleasure sleeve and gives you a more realistic experience when masturbating with sleeve type toys.

Once your toy is heated up you can slide in with a standard lube, or a warming one to increase the sensation you crave.

Remember when you play with new toys or lubes to test them out first and make sure that they are compatible with your toys as well as your body. Try a little bit of lube out on a small sensitive part first and pay attention to your body. When using heated toys, try it first on the inside of your wrist to gauge the heat and how hot you want it.
