How Important Is Gay Money?

by Joseph Holmes


Rarely do we think of how consumer dollars—specifically, gay dollars—have a positive affect on the gay community and the economy at large.


If that weren’t true, there would not be such an attempt at anti-gay proponents to single out gays and gay supporters where money is concerned.


In an article by Carlos Santoscoy, September 8, 2008, on the web site OnTop Magazine

(, Fred Karger, Campaign Manager of Californians Against Hate, makes the observation that certain people “are pouring in money into California to eliminate our freedom to marry [and] are willing to spend tens of millions of dollars to do just that.” more

A Beginners Guide To Sensual Male Massage


by James Newman



The words "sensual massage" can conjure all sorts of images -- some more steamy than others.


It's a loaded phrase, certainly, but not necessarily in a negative sense, according to a masseur.


“I like how the site is open to self expression of sensual massage by the massage therapist. Everyone has his own definition, so it is left open to the masseur," said a F.A.M. masseur. “It's important to do so”, he said, “Because communication between the client and the masseur is vital”.

We give hugs, and we receive hugs. It feels good during, and it feels better after, and likely we’ve never pondered why. We may not think of human touch being vital to our health and survival. But it is, and study after study has proven it. When our embraces are brief but sincere; when we out and out give big ole hugs; when we comfort with simple touch—these are times when small miracles of healing have taken place right under our, well, more
