Guys on Grindr often take their profile pictures with their smartphone while looking into the mirror. With over 6 million people using Grindr on overage for 90 minutes a day, this popular application has become a cultural phenomenon giving us intriguing snapshots of our queer world.
So Grindr got hacked the other week. So much of our life today happens online, on our phones and computers. Some of us have a lot of naked pics of ourselves out there. How safe is it?
We mean dating for real, getting to know the other guy, not just hooking up for a root. Have you tried it lately? You might be surprised at what you find.
We spend so much of our lives online these days, and for gay men, that often means time spent on dating websites. There's something about chatting online that is powerful and lets us open up to people fast. There's nothing wrong with that, and some guys have even met the love of their lives this way, but it still pays to be careful when you hookup on the net.
It's a fair question, and the answer is yes, of course you can. Guys who don't have HIV meet and fall in love with guys who have it. Like any relationship, looking after each other, playing safe, and being upfront and honest is the key.
Some guys seem to just find Mr Right straight away, and some of us seem to look and look and it feels like we'll never meet him. But don't give up.
Are you thinking about opening up your relationship ? Heaps of couples do, but lots of guys choose not to as well. There are pros and cons either way.
When we talk about staying safe online on this site, it's usually about who and how you hook-up with other guys. But there's another side to online safety, and that's watching out for people using dating sites to get money out of you. We don't want to spoil your fun, but look after yourselves out there, and here are some of the signs to watch for.
It's so easy in the gay world for guys to hook up. An awful lot of our social world seems to be built around guys meeting and getting their clothes off. We've got bars and clubs, and saunas and fuck-clubs, not to mention the whole world of sex online. Even the word "homosexual" stresses the sexual side. But does all this easy access to sex stop us finding love or making real friends?
Summer - when you’re already hot and sticky, why not get hotter and stickier? We don't need much of an excuse to get undressed in this weather, so enjoy it.
