Vintage queer porn story - The Stranger in the Mirror

This story is an abbreviated version of the first chapter of “The Hitchhiker,” a porn novel which was released in 1969 in the series ‘Black Knight Classics of the Homosexual Underground’ published by the Guild Press in Washington D.C.

Mickie Burcel might have spelled his name like a sissy, but he was perhaps one of the butchiest bastards any street-walking or bar-patronaging fairy could care to come in contact with. As he was in his apartment tossing things into his suitcase, Mickie caught a glimpse of himself in the mirror. He always did have a streak of egotism that flashed through his butch facade where ever he went, and he would constantly flex his muscles for all the queens to stare at and appreciate.

Comics - The Secret Lives Of Vikings According To Julius

Julius recently published a new graphic novel: “Vikings: Irish Annals.” As the title reveals the story takes place in the dark ages when Vikings rampaged Europe. But with Julius it doesn’t really matter when something takes place. Whether it’s the present, or the Victorian Age, or in this case much longer ago, it’s always about the same thing: a young guy discovers men’s sex with a more mature guy and more or less willingly turns into the sex toy of a range of other men.

Portfolio - Falcon’s Bootstrap

They say good wine doesn’t need crystal, but: Will good wine be good forever? And what is good wine? Falcon is one of the few studios that’s been putting out gay porn for over thirty years. Way before video reached our living rooms and bedrooms we knew of Falcon from the projections in bars. Argos has shown them for a long time. Falcon’s production is enormous with a catalogue featuring over four hundred titles. Unfortunately not all of them are of the highest standards, but there were good ones and those were really good.

Health - Live Life to the Max?

Reiki can help you get rid of various complaints and restore your balance. But you can also have a reiki treatment just to relax.

Wolter ter Haar (34) started giving reiki treatments a year ago: “You can have a reiki treatment to get rid of a sports injury, but also for relaxation. You can compare a reiki treatment with physiotherapy, but it can go further than just that. I have treated people for RSI, migraines, insomnia and back or shoulder related aches and pains. During an hour’s treatment you lie down on a massage table and need to wear comfortable clothes.

Gay & the City - Slap me, I love you

The Annual Internet Awards at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. My friend Sammy had given me an invitation and I attended to see just how cool it was going to be. And cool it was! Handsome young men in suits and chicks in cocktail dresses drinking cosmopolitans. Futuristic screenings on the walls and subdued funky beats. Refined laughter and smooth confident moves. The whole thing looked like a scene from a James Bond movie.

Swimwear - Speedo's Olympic Aura

Speedo and swimming are almost synonymous. This swimwear manufacturer exists for over seventy-five years and is a favorite with swimming aces. 83% of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games medalists wore Speedo, just as the twenty-one gold medalists of the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. This spring the Australian Speedo offers again top-class swimwear for men. Speedo’s shorts are characterized by a combination of convenience and a clean, fresh and stylized look.

Letter from Brussels - Gay Parade 2006

Dear Northern Neighbors, Are you also really looking forward to your annual gay parade? Yesterday we had ours here in Brussels. It was time for all gays and lesbians from the remotest (well remote...) corners of our tiny country to get together. Along the route I discovered a view foreign gay tourists as well, who probably were very badly informed on the scale of the event. Before they knew it had started, it was over and done with already.

Travel - Gay in Turkey

Turkey lies in between Europe and Asia. The Aya Sophia and the Blue Mosque in Istanbul face each other as symbols of Christianity and the Islam. The Americans think the European Union should accept Turkey as a member state because it’s a bridge between Europe and Asia, East and West, the Islam and Christianity. In Europe we haven’t made up our minds yet. The Turkish gays and lesbians welcome a possible membership of the EU because they see it as a chance to further their struggle, the European gays and lesbians are wary of new member states like Poland, Rumania and Turkey because they could shift the balance within Europe towards conservative moral convictions.

Violent Extremists Disturb Moscow Pride Manifestation

The political fall of communism and the knocking down of the Iron Curtain, made many European governments eager to give the former Eastern bloc countries a hearty welcome into the bosom of democracy and capitalism. It’s true that most of these countries adapted rather quickly to the joys of Western materialism. The acceptation of the non-materialist values, which are also part of Western culture, such as personal freedom regarding sexual matters, is less successful however.
