Waste Friends



I had to delete some numbers from my phone this week. Who needs friends whose only conversation is about who they are linking, messing with people in relationships, and if I have any links I can pass on? Zero goals, just out for themselves shallowness. I ain't got time for waste folk who add zero value to my life.

Delete - Am I sure? - Yes

Review: Rivers Wash Over Me



So I just got done watching Rivers Wash Over Me. It was a sad watch which ended leaving a lot of questions unanswered. The film touches on race relations, incest abuse, drugs, and growing up gay in the American South, but the problem is just that; it touches. Themes within the movie are not explored enough so after watching the movie you come away feeling a little frustrated.

It did make me think of school days where there were gay people who were born clockable and were loners and used to get troubled by bullies on the regular which helps bring those storylines in the film alive to me. I guess overall what the movie does really well is illustrate the effects of suffering in silence, so if that is your reality, speak to someone.

3/5

Lust in the Rain Pt. 2



Carrying on from part 1 . As I had given him the green light, he leaned in for the kiss and when his lips connected with mine in my head it was like fireworks; my soul properly felt alive. It started raining proper heavily so we took cover on the benches underneath the slide in the adventure playround. We were in our zone alternating between 1st and 2nd base. My ting was printed against my tracksuit bottoms and he let the head poke out, wet his thumb with his tongue and circled it around the vein near the tip of my dick, I can't even tell you how heavy it felt. After about 45 minutes, I let him know that it was getting late and I had to cut. He walked me to the train station and when I got home to my room, I feel onto my bed grinning teeth and happy that someone decent was checking for me.

We linked up a couple of times after where I would go visit him as a 'friend from college' and met his mum, dad and sister, but turns out he wanted to be on a whole 'playing the field tip' so I ended the sexual part of our relationship and concentrated on the friendship, so although I was a little pissed off to begin with, I'm glad things have turned out the way they did.

I Don't Know you personally yet I've heard all about you



What is it with gay people that have always got their mouths dragging their conquests or enemys through the mud to others?

I am always weary of people who ask me if I know random guys names that they reel off. I guess I feel as though everyone should get to know people for themselves and not basing opinions on hearsay and gossip fodder.

If you are my friend then the friendship is based on you and I bettering each other as people by inspiring growth and being on hand to give advice and come to through where possible. The last thing I want is for you to waste my time projecting negative energy from your situations with others that didn't end amicably.

Being a person of colour and getting to know the same in London is hard enough with the hearsay making the pool even smaller. 

As a man, never feel that you are doing someone wrong by cutting someone short and telling them that you don't want to hear their fodder.

Have you ever dealt with such people? How did you react?

My 2 pence: How's your sex game?



If someone was to ask you if you sex game was on point what would you say? The real question is how well do you know yourself sexually. In this day and age people are so caught up on how they want to appear, they loose sight of the basic element. Passion.

If you then drill down a level you've got validation and physical attraction; you want to guarantee that said person is into you and you want to be attracted on all levels to the person that you are laying with. If you are into masculine guys and a guy with feminine traits comes into the picture be real with yourself. If you are not into him sexually put a platonic friendship on the table as an alternative and keep it moving.

Similarly if you and your ideal cross paths, don't lose yourself in the situation; it only means that it won't last long on the grounds said guy is attracted to you and not the sprung shadow of your former self.

Then let's talk what turns you on.Why lay with someone if you are going to hold back on verbalising how you really wanna be pleased, when sex and foreplay should be a two way thing? What's a handsome face if he can't kiss, or worst still, is whack where all things down south are concerned?

Similarly, if he ain't doing it right, a lil "That's cool but you know what would really be on point...?" type sentence goes a long way.

Although dating isn't always about the physical, the physical forms a major part of the jigsaw and its for that reason that you should take some time to address it.
