Bromance for Biffs

December 28, 2017

The background, in two previous postings: about the tv show Teen Wolf, two of its central characters (Stiles and Derek, who start out antagonistic towards one another but become friends), the actors who play these characters (Dylan O’Brien and Tyler Hoechlin (pronounced like Hecklin), respectively), Stiles and Derek in Sterek slash fiction and art (where they are lovers / boyfriends), and the real-life (intense but non-sexual) bromance between O’Brien and Hoechlin as Biffs (bffs < best friends forever).

Sterek

December 26, 2017

(There will be implied or allusive steamy mansex, in addition to heavy man-on-man romance, affection, kissing, cuddling, and all that good stuff. A little bit of linguistics at the end. But perhaps not to everyone’s taste.)

Some Sterek slash art, involving the characters Stiles and Derek from the tv show Teen Wolf — introduced here in a posting on to kitchen-kiss and leading (in a posting to come) to more discussion of bromances, the bromance between the actors Dylan O’Brien (who plays Stiles) and Tyler Hoechlin (who plays Derek) being a case in point.

gruggerwear

December 6, 2017

(Hunky antipodal gay jocks modeling underwear, a bit of cheap language play, but otherwise not much to shock kids or the sexually modest.)

From the Daily Jocks people today, Aussie gruggerwear (gay rugby underwear) packaged into a calendar so you can take one for the team:

March of the rainbow mixers

October 29, 2017

At yesterday’s national dinner of the lgbt advocacy organization HRC (Human Rights Campaign) at the Washington Convention Center: Hillary Rodham Clinton, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, tennis star Billie Jean King, the band DNCE, Gold Star father Khizr Khan, actress Uzo Aduba, U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris — and, among the items at the silent auction, this array of KitchenAid stand mixers (donated by Whirlpool, the parent corporation of KitchenAid):

Gift postcards

October 21, 2017

Gifts: not just the tea towel, the purple plant mister, and the flared glassware reported on earlier today, but also three postcards from a Human Sexuality display at the Wellcome Trust exhibition centre (in London), sent to me by regular reader RJP. Two remarkable penis-bird cards, and one with a man in stockings — just one item from what turns out to be a rich vein of photographs of men in stockings, high heels, garter belts, bustiers, whatever from the world of gender-bending.

Revisiting 8: Rod Canyon

October 16, 2017

(At least at the beginning, about gay porn, focused on men’s bodies and mansex, so not for kids or the sexually modest. Eventually, there will be comics, movies, music, and plants.)

From the 12th, in my “Pizza Boy outtakes” posting, the idiom canyon yodeling, at first only ‘cunnilingus’, then ‘man on man anilingus’, with the sexual slang canyon extended from ‘vagina viewed as sexual organ’ to ‘male anus viewed as sexual organ’. And then today in viewing the gay porn movie Rear Deliveries (William Higgins, 1980), I came upon the wonderfully named pornstar Rod Canyon, whose porn name unites the two central but opposed objects of gay male desire, the penis (insertive) in Rod and the anus (receptive) in Canyon. As far as I can tell, Lance Box hasn’t been used yet as a (dual-purpose) porn name, but Rod Canyon labored in the P&A fields of pleasure around 1980.

He opened his mouth

October 5, 2017

… and a/his purse dropped / fell out.

Meaning: and he revealed himself to be a flaming faggot. Said by someone (usually a gay man) who is distancing himself from flaming faggots and (usually) expressing disdain for them. A variant of the formula in an ecard:

(Eventually there will be a bit of sex talk, from Dan Savage, but otherwise this material shouldn’t be problematic.)

Doorman of the underworld

October 3, 2017

(The Daily Jocks ad (for PUMP!) from 9/19, with a caption from me, plus some fantasy. About the gay world and mansex, so not for kids or the sexually modest.)

(#1) Doorman of the underworld

Gymangelic Portalo guards a
Subterranean landscape of
Man with man, a secret, dark,
Sweaty country overseen by
Angel Eagle

Pay Portalo with a kiss to
Enter, explore,
Embrace, explode, to be
Embraced, entered,
Occupied.

Obsolete technologies and middle verbs

September 5, 2017

A pair of Zits strips, from yesterday and today:

(#1)
(#2)

The theme is the looming obsolescence of technologies and their supporting infrastructures and social practices, in this case the system of mail delivery (cue Thomas Pynchon’s novella The Crying of Lot 49), with all its parts and accompaniments: postage stamps, envelopes and postcards, mail boxes, mail transport and delivery systems, posthorns and their tunes, delivery personnel in uniforms, mail slots, post offices, conventions for the form of letters, and more. If you’re young and well wired these days, this all could be as mysterious and exotic as analog clocks.

Jeremy is wary of the whole business.

And yes, Pynchon is relevant.
