A couple of days ago, the news reached us: Cor the owner of the worldwide known bar ‘Gaiety’ had sold the place. Together we looked back at more then 17 years of Gaiety.
The address Amstel 14 was already well known years before Gaiety opened its doors. Between 1963 until 1983 it was known as ‘Moors Eldorado’ in those days the bar had no windows, outside you would only see the name in neon lights. Inside the bar was decorated with pink imitation leather, loads of electric chandeliers with fake crystal, in Dutch we used to call these bars “bonbon-boxes”

After they had taken him to his cell, Martin fell into a deep sleep. His body was still covered with wax and cum. Lowe woke him up and took him to the shower room. Martin was feeling sore all over.

He stood guard unmoved during Martin's shower. Even when Martin washed himself between his legs and his cock was obviously swelling, the cop did not show any emotion.

Although many men complain about the demise of gay porn mags, are some of these magazines still going strong. Especially the ones that aim at a specific sexual appetite. I have the impression that, for example, Bound & Gagged, gets bigger and more colorful with every issue. And also Handjobs Magazine, which is dedicated to Daddy-Boy relations, seems to flourish.
