The music video for Willie Nelson’s song “Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly (Fond of Each Other)” is out, so I thought I’d share it. Living in Nashville, I enjoy the fact that this video probably pisses off a few old-school country music fans.

Thems gays are everyware, Bubba.

gay wedding1) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven’t adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

4) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn’t changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can’t marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

5) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britney Spears’ 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

6) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn’t be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren’t full yet, and the world needs more children.

7) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

8) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That’s why we have only one religion in America.

9) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That’s why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

Isn’t this funny? Thanks Mike.

big ol’ gay uncles

Apr 3, 2006 / Filed in Family, Gay / 12 Comments

Last year, we had some drama with my brother, his wife, and their 2 children. Now that my niece is getting old enough to ask questions, I was informed that Rodney and I act “too gay” around their kids and they want us to pretend like we’re just friends. Apparently we were going to corrupt their children’s fragile little minds by demonstrating a strong, loving relationship.

To make matters worse, they claimed Rodney was not part of the family at all, and a whole bunch of other shit. At the beginning of the new year, I was faced with the challenge of how to move forward with the children’s birthdays. I finally decided that we would prevail, that we would shine through as actively involved uncles and refused to let homophobia keep us from being a part of these children’s lives.

So this weekend was our baby nephew’s 1st birthday party. We were not invited to the party at my brother’s house, but we came anyway. My sister-in-law realized we were in the house, and gave a great big fake smile. “HELLO!” I exclaimed. “How are you?”.

Rodney disappeared over to a quiet corner with my parents and Grandma. Meanwhile, I walked around, wreaking havoc with my larger-than-life personality. I socialized with everyone, hugging people, playing with children, having a fantastic time.

This clearly annoyed the piss out of my brother and his wife. I even jumped into their conversations with people, adding my opinions and advice.

We ate lunch, ate cake, took lots of pictures, and then made a big gay exit. It was great.

Why did I do this? Was I being vindictive? Was I being sarcastic?

No…my intentions were purely positive. I refuse to modify my personality to make straight people feel better about their decisions. I am not a flamer, I am not ridiculously flamboyant. But I am capable of being very social and having a lot of fun at parties. I owed it to myself to give 110% of myself… to have a great time with my family and to not let anyone ruin the day.

By bringing Rodney along, I am sending a clear statement that we are a “real” couple and we are not going to disappear. We are great uncles, their children love us…so why should we stop loving them?

open relationships.

Mar 30, 2006 / Filed in Gay / 14 Comments

two gay men kissingOkay, my friend Kirk brought this topic up and I’ve decided I want to talk about it. I know it’s controversial, and I’m not trying to make any enemies. I discussed a few controversial things last year, and it didn’t go over too well with my readers.

Less restrictions, less problems, right?

The concept of “open relationships” is pretty well-known in the gay community, and it’s actually becoming increasingly popular with straight people too. It allows you the ability to choose a partner, but still have the freedom to sleep with whomever you want.

Millions of couples break up each year because somebody has been unfaithful. By eliminating the concept of cheating, it appears that the relationship is more secure. If you never have to worry about your partner cheating, then you never have to worry about the relationship failing, right?

Nothing worth having comes easily

Well, maybe not. Nothing is that simple. I believe the best things in life are the ones that you have to fight for. Is it easy making that first car payment? No, but you worked for it. Is it easy buying that first house? No, but you worked for it. Is it easy to commit to one person? No, but you worked for it.

I’m not saying relationships are the same as a car or a house. But all good things come with hard work. Let’s say you’ve been single. You’ve dated all kinds of schmucks, looking for “the one”. So now you’ve found that special person. Why would you want to share them with someone else? Why would you want to jeopardize a special bond that only 2 people can understand?

Yes, fidelity is difficult

I’m not a saint. I’ve been with my partner Rodney for 5 years. Yes, my fidelity has been tested many times. But Rodney is my best friend. We have a very special relationship that nobody else sees. When we are alone, we are vulnerable, we are honest, we are tender and loving. I can truly say that none of our friends or family have ever witnessed the connection we have when it’s just the 2 of us. If a 3rd person was involved, all that would be broken.

I do understand the benefits of open relationships. It’s like having your cake and eating it too. It’s like having a whole new dimension of sex available to me at anytime. I can go to a bar and have some guy suck my cock in the corner without any guilt. Kinky, adventurous, exciting. Yes, I know.

But how do I know where my life is going if I don’t even know I’ve got something solid in my home? What if one of us makes a mistake, and contracts an STD? We’d always have to worry about safety. And what happens if one of us develops a relationship with a 3rd person? Do we have to divide our time equally?

Don’t pretend it doesn’t happen. I know all about the rules. “Don’t kiss, don’t talk about personal things, don’t sleep with the same person twice.” But we are humans, not robots. We feel things emotionally. There are no guarantees we won’t get attached to someone else, and then what happens to our relationship?

What works for me might not work for you

I’ve said all this because it’s how I feel about open relationships. Not everybody has a relationship like mine. What works for me might not work for others.

So after saying all that, I want to point out that I do accept the fact that some people do have open relationships. Part of it is just human nature. I have never picked up a guy at a bar, I have never had a one night stand. Actually, I’ve never been sexually involved with someone I wasn’t in a relationship with first.

Sex is not casual for me. And I guess the core issue of open relationships is sex. So if your life relies heavily on sex with multiple people, then open relationships are probably right for you.

But my life, better yet my life with Rodney, is built around every aspect of a relationship. We are selfish and we are not willing to share any part of this relationship with 3rd people. We like feel stable and secure with what we have, and we don’t want anyone to interfere.

This is how open relationships fit into our life. What works for you might be completely different.

supernaturalYou learn something new everyday. And I’ve learned a lot today!

Last November, I caught on to the WB series “Supernatural”. It’s about 2 brothers who travel around fighting spirits, ghosts, and other paranormal. After seeing a few episodes, I thought these guys were really gay (and really hot!). So I wrote a post called “Supernatural is Supergay”. It was all a big joke, of course. But it has steadily picked up traffic from “Supernatural” fan sites and it’s pissed off plenty of people along the way.

I’ve now discovered a whole new level of “Supernatural” fans. Apparently there is a term called “wincest”. The brothers’ fictional last name is Winchester. So they’ve combined the words “Winchester” and “Incest”.

So these fans get together and write fictional stories about the brothers having a romantic affair. They call it “wincest” and they write all these sexual fantasies about the 2 guys getting it on.

WTF? Really? Further, these are girls writing them. Yeah. Girls are getting off on hot stories about the 2 brothers having mansex.

Here’s an excerpt from kitipurr:

“Sam slung one leg over his, one knee moving between Dean’s so Sam could rub their groins together. The friction was delicious, and Dean groaned as Sam’s lips moved up to find his, tongue pressing for entrance gratefully given. They moved against each other, hands exploring lazily.”

Gosh, I am really out of touch with the dating scene. Is that the new thing? Are women twirling their holes to gay guys?

Well, I dunno what to say. I’m not a big fan of incest, but I’m just fascinated that women get off to this. Who knew?

I love the new super improved closet-case Ricky Martin. He’s hotter, blacker, and more sexually confused than ever.

And don’t worry about the scene where he pours creamy milk all over his face and chest. There’s nothing gay about that.

On a sidenote, I thought the scene where the 2 women were humping was very hetero, indeed. That’ll throw them off!

AdamMale Provides “Heart-On” for One Popular Blogger
Published: March 15, 2006 {Press Release for}

Hillsborough, N.C. – AdamMale, a gay, adult mail order catalog and Web company, is providing thrills to one very observant blogger.

In a series of ongoing articles about AdamMale, Blogger Nathan used his online space to record his likes and dislikes about the popular AdamMale catalog – everything from catalog copy to product photos was critiqued.

Much to his surprise, AdamMale was listening – and Nathan noticed!

Several updates to his blog include references to how photos were changed and copy was edited, in accordance to his marketing tips and suggestions.

“When someone gives you such sage advice, it has to be rewarded,” said company spokesman Craig Ledford. “We sent Nathan a large basket of’s best offerings for helping us out.”

AdamMale is a sister company of Adam & Eve, a company with more than 30 years of experience in providing premium customer satisfaction through its catalog, Web and home parties endeavors.

AdamMale Gives Loving To Its Customers
Published: March 16, 2006 {Blog Entry on}

We consider the gay adult products catalog to be something pretty utilitarian: an old friend that is there when we need him, even if he’s kind of plain. He gets the job done, even if the “taste level isn’t quite there,” in the words of Project Runway Judge/Editor-in-Chief of Elle magazine Nina Garcia. And we thought he was pretty content the way he is.

Nathan over at Nathan Exposed thought differently, and decided to poke fun at his favorite adult catalog, AdamMale, in a hilarious post that picks apart some of their more awful photos and suggests changes. When he received his next catalog, the photo at left had been changed! He suspected they had read his blog, and it turns out he was correct.

They just sent him a huge gift basket containing a little bit of everything, from porn to cockrings to dirty playing cards. But the best prize of all was the giant bottle of “Wet: Platinum” lube. That stuff costs as much as a romantic dinner for two, and lasts so much longer.


Thanks for all the attention guys! I agree with about the Wet Platinum. It’s gooood 😉

manbagI’ve said it before, I’m a late adopter. I guess manbags have been in style for awhile now.

I’m happy to say I have my very own fagbag manbag. It’s not fancy or expensive. Just a simple black bag from Target. But the inside is a bright shade of green. Very cool.

I LOVE IT! How did I go this long without one? I cram everything in it. Books, papers, keys, magazines, iPod, cat (oops! sorry Purr Purr). There’s even space for a laptop if I ever get one.

I know I’m not the only dude sporting one of these things. Tell me about your manbag!

I Heart AdamMale

Mar 14, 2006 / Filed in Gay, Sex / 13 Comments

adammaleThe Backstory: Last winter, I posted an entry poking fun at some of the photos in AdamMale’s catalog. A few months later, I received a new AdamMale catalog and it appeared that they had re-shot one of the photos as a result of my blog entry. So I posted a follow-up saying that I had influenced the marketing of AdamMale, and asked them to send me some porn as incentive for helping their catalog.

The Update: To my surprise, I received an e-mail from James at AdamMale, confirming that their catalog really was influenced by my blog. So today, I received a huge box of goodies from James. He covered all the bases. Cockrings, ball weights, butt plugs, dildos, dirty playing cards, porn DVD’s, and a gigantic bottle of lube!

A Word of Thanks: I want to thank AdamMale for being so cool about everything. They have a great sense of humor, and James has been extremely generous to me. This also speaks volumes about their customer service. They clearly care what consumers think of their catalog, and are willing to make improvements based on feedback. I think that’s awesome.

What Really Tickles Me: I can’t help laughing when I imagine James picking out the products he sent me. What was the thought process? Did he read my blog and try to figure out what I’d like? Did he wonder “Who is this ‘Nathan Exposed’ guy anyway”? Just thinking about someone picking out porn for me makes me laugh 🙂

What This Means for My Readers: James has set-up a special coupon code for my readers!

Visit and enter coupon code “NATHAN” to receive 25% off your purchase! How sweet is that?

Final Point: I think AdamMale is an all-around great company. They have been incredibly receptive to my feedback, and very professional about everything. Let’s face it, most of us have bought porn or some kind of adult product at some point. I’m not ashamed to say it. If you want a great selection of videos, toys, and accessories, I highly recommend them. I have bought products from them in the past, and they are very reliable and discreet.

Check them out at and don’t forget to enter coupon code “NATHAN” at checkout to get 25% off!

fall out boy… fall out

fall out boy

Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m not a huge fan of dicks. I’ve always been more of a butt man. But whatever.

When a celebrity decides to show us his cock, I’ll take a looksy.

So the gossip sites are buzzing with cock shots of Pete Wentz, of the group Fall Out Boy. The first rumor was that they were stolen, but now apparently he intentionally sent them to a friend, who has now leaked them online.

I’ve always thought Pete was gorgeous and I *love* these photos. Why? Because Pete manscapes his cock. How hot is that? Gee, I haven’t been this excited since I saw Robbie Williams masturbating last October.

However…I think the REAL question on everyone’s mind is this —

What the fuck is going on with that bathroom wallpaper? It’s hideous! Wallpaper is evil, there are no exceptions. And that moon pattern is soooo ’80’s. Not in a cool way, but a seriously outdated way. And why is there a Morrissey poster pinned to the wall? Somebody call Martha!
