The internet has so much to offer to gays, at times you can`t see the wood for the trees. You can wander around endlessly and come upon the most useless or bizarre affairs. For those not willing to surf around aimlessly, I gathered this small selection of inetresting websites and checked out what the webcam is all about.
In the alphabet of perversions the `s` is the letter which will please many people, since it covers so many concepts. So much so, that it will take several months before we get to the `t`. It starts off with a nice variation many men will remember from their childhood. Sacofiosis (pocketfumbling) stands for self- stimulation through a hole in the pocket of boys` trousers. In 1792 a book against onanism was published: B.C. Faust`s "Treatise concerning the necessary improvement of clothing, wherein it is demonstrated, that the moral and physical deterioration of mankind is caused by the dressing in trousers". It dealt with the dangers of trousers. Not only were most trousers too tight, in order to piss, the fly necessitated boys to use their hands to take out their dick. And also pockets, with or without holes, enabled boys to secretly fondle their genitals continuously.
The days only Tinsel Town actors and actrices were entitled to universal star status are over, since also sports men started climbing the commercial popularity ladder. These days sports amateurs kick the ball around on some out-of-the-way field, while the professionals collect containers full of cash, showing off their tricks on the sports fields. They`ve become millionairs and, what`s more, many amongst them also became the most adored inhabitants of the planet.
The list is long and impressive: 54 Giorgio Armani shops, 6 Armani Collezione stores, 129 Emoprio Armani shops, 54 A/X Armani Exchange shops and 4 Armani Jeans stores in 33 countries. In 1981 he introduced his side collection Emporio Armani, younger and more affordable than his main one. My first collection came out in 1975 and before that I worked as a stylist for other fashion houses." No loud, harsh colours or striking prints for Armani, but rather a refined, poetic style breathing a restful softness. Often in non-colours, like beige, grey and earth tones. His nickame so happens to be The King of Beige". I check everything myself, so I`m often at loggerheads with myself. I`m blamed for not trusting anyone."
My heart is Amsterdam - an audience with Gary Christmas
Gary Christmas is one half of the legendary Christmas Twins, nightclub entertainers turned owners of the Backstage Coffee shop. He has lived in Amsterdam for the last 27 years, achieving notoriety not only for his outrageous behaviour but also for his colourfully kooky signature crochet creations. A simple glance at the menu tells you this is not your ordinary café. You will not find cappuccino, café au lait or even a simple orange juice anywhere on the list, but you will see Foam From Rome, Steamy Creamy and Juicy Lucy. "Mama Wanted Girls" it states boldly on the bottom. Anything goes within these four walls where mayhem and a touch of madness are more often the rule than the exception. It`s an experience not to be missed and no trip to Amsterdam is quite complete without a visit to this cafe. Larger than life when he`s ruling the room, there is also a more spiritual and sedate side to Gary. We met for an interview over a cup of tea in his home above the shop to reminisce about his colourful career and his experiences as an American in Amsterdam.
