Watch: Journey of a Gay Athlete Documentary

About a year ago, World Sport and CNN International debuted this terrific hour long documentary about the experience gay athletes have both before and after coming out to the world. Thankfully, they have finally made the documentary available for public consumption exclusively on Vimeo. The film follows the lives of LA Galaxy footballer Robbie Rogers, Phoenix Mercury basketball player Brittney Griner, and Olympic speed skater Blake Skjellerup.  

From the official synopsis:
Character, camaraderie, integrity; attributes often touted in the world of sport. But in recent years, there’s one action that’s gradually being tested on the field and in the ring… tolerance. The topic of homosexuality and homophobia in sport seems to have run rampant among the world’s leading sporting federations. 
In ‘World Sport Presents: Journey of the Gay Athlete’, a one-hour original documentary, CNN gets exclusive access to people on the frontlines fighting against homophobia in sport, to profile some of sport’s most courageous athletes and hear their stories of tackling sport's last taboo:
Professional footballer for the LA Galaxy, Robbie Rogers shares what it was like growing up gay on the pitch and delves into his greatest fears about coming out in the international world of football.
Brittney Griner, basketball player for the Phoenix Mercury, always knew she would be a professional athlete. But she didn’t always know how she to cope with being taunted and bullied as a teenager or how to navigate high school as a lesbian.
For years, speed skater Blake Skjellerup dreamed of representing New Zealand in the Olympics. To Blake, being gay meant his dream of competing on the international stage seemed almost impossible. He shares his thoughts on the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics and why he stands beside those opposing Russia’s gay propaganda laws.

A Gay Geek's Guide to Surviving Valentine's Day!

Well, Valentine's Day is just a few weeks away! After talking to some of our gay geeky coupled friends about hilarious mistakes they have made, we enlisted the help of cartoonist Jake Rohdy to create an illustrated guide to navigating potential missteps that might cause some strife on what is supposed to be the most romantic day of the year! Follow these steps and hopefully your Valentine's Day will be stress free!

#1) If you plan to go out to eat, MAKE RESERVATIONS! 
Like right now. Seriously. Nothing is a mood killer like driving around in a car for two hours trying to find a place to eat on Valentine's Day. So, unless you plan on waiting in line for ninety minutes at Olive Garden or settling for Taco Bell, start calling around now before everything decent fills up.

#2) Put Your Phones Away For One Night!
You can do it. Force yourself. Enjoy each other's company. No phones. No tablets. No video games (unless you are playing them together).

#3) Don't Go Overboard on Gifts!
This is a mistake we have all made at one time or another! If you are going to exchange gifts, keep it reasonable. There is no need to go into debt to show someone how you feel.

#4) No Gag Gifts!
Unless you have the boyfriend with the world's best sense of humor, we would suggest skipping the gag gifts. Save it for the birthday celebrations!

#5) If you are single this year... 
We suggest a night filled with video games, adult beverages, and junk food! Remember, every pizza is a personal pizza if you believe in yourself.

Preview Class Comics Wonderful Sci-Fi Adventure "Crash Course #2"

Class Comics has really nailed it (pun intended) with their terrific new erotic sci-fi release Crash Course #2. This time around, the book is a perfect blend of plot driven story line intertwined with the sexually charged erotic elements that Class Comics does so well. The result is a fairly satisfying read that makes you want to come back for Crash Course #3.

For those unfamiliar, the Crash Course series tells the story of rascally, lovable space adventurer Crash and his sentient robot companion Rockstar who, for whatever awesome reason, is able to relocate his conciseness into other machine based lifeforms. So, you never know what Rockstar will look like from panel to panel. Rockstar tends to keep Crash from getting into too much trouble from his ill advised intergalactic sexual exploits and smuggling runs. Without divulging too much of the plot, Crash Course #2 is filled with cyborgs, androids, sex twins, galaxy domination plots, zero gravity intercourse, and some unexpected romance. It's well worth checking out.

Crash Course #2 is brilliantly written by Johnny Murdoc and beautifully illustrated by TJ Wood. The colors in this issue are by Richie San Lucas. You can take a sneak peek at some explicit panels HERE. While you are there, check out Crash Course #1. Also, check out Class Comic's Facebook page!

Read: "Slave Boys" Another Fun Gay Erotic Story Compilation Edited by Winston Gieseke

Publishing house Bruno Gmünder is at it again with a new gay erotic short story compilation Slave Boys. And, once again, it is edited and compiled by The Advocates former managing editor Winston Gieseke. You might remember last October when we posted about their previous story collaboration Out Of Uniform.

Gieseke has had a long and hilariously wonderful jack of all trades career mixing his ability to write with his ability to perform. Beginning his career as a television writer, Winston Gieseke penned episodes for shows like Wildfire and Hollywood Off-Ramp. He has composed tantalizing copy for various adult entertainment companies and served as editor in chief of both Men and Freshmen magazines before honing his journalistic skills as managing editor of The Advocate. He has also edited numerous other Erotic Story compilations including Team Players, Hired Hands, and Until the Sun Rises Gay Vampire Erotica. I encourage you to learn more about Winston at his charmingly amusing website.

This time around, Gieseke tackles the fantasy theme of light bondage and submission. In the book's introduction he quips, "Being a slave boy means always having to say you’re sorry. Because even if something’s not your fault, you’re certain to be punished for it. And that’s a good thing."

Here's more from the intro:
Not all the stories contained herein are bondage-based; a slave can take on many forms. While some of the subs written about are into physical restraint, others enjoy a purely mental thralldom.

A fed-up man exacts payment from a handsome but delinquent tenant by “forcing” him into sexual servitude in Rob Rosen’s “Roommate Troubles.” A cop with a predilection for submissiveness gets roughed up after a routine traffic stop in Brett Lockhard’s “Police Brutality.” 
Some stories feature strangers who go from slaves to faves—such as J.R. Haney’s “My Newest Pledge,” Roger Willoughby’s “Cleaner Slave,” and Ryan Field’s “Jersey Jacks”—while others depict slave action being introduced as a way of spicing up an existing relationship, usually to unexpected results (see Joe Thompson’s “Three Unsafe Words” and Chip Masterson’s “A Great Selling Point”). Crushing on a seemingly unattainable straight guy? Sometimes the only way they’ll let you have them is in a dom-sub sitch—with you as the dom, of course. But the crushing gay guys depicted here, like Bradford in Jeffrey Hartinger’s “Last Day of Class” and Jimmy in Natty Soltesz’s “Cooked,” seem to relish their roles as impromptu slaves at the inviting hands of their long-obsessed-over hunk masters. (Want the roles reversed? Check out P.A. Friday’s “Pretty Little Straight Boy,” in which a young womanizer suddenly finds himself so desirous of his gay best mate that he allows the guy to boss him around and rough him up good. Hot.)
Regardless if you are into slave play in your real sex life or not, there is plenty of titillating sexual content in these stories to get you going. It's certainly fun reading, even if these fantasies are something you never intend to act out on your own. 

You can check it out at the Bruno Gmünder site or here in the US at Amazon. Read below of an excerpt!

Weekend at the Lake
by T. Hitman

There were four of us in all, four of us guilty of the crime. I’ll call the ringleader “Flash,” because he was the dude with the camera. Flash was tall and handsome to the point it almost hurt to look at him directly, like staring at the sun. Short dark hair, eyes halfway between blue and gray that lacked mercy, he wore jeans, old boots on big feet, hadn’t shaved. A real man’s man, probably ex-military if I had to guess. They all were, according to the inked muscles I saw that first night, Friday.

Next was “Evan.” He was Evan because he reminded me of a college buddy I knew who played on the baseball team. A real jock, Evan-then wore his hair one length longer than most athletes. Not shaggy, really. Just wild enough to make you lust for the chance at hot, meaningless sex with him. I had that with Evan-then a few times after he got shitfaced at a party and staggered into our dorm room, moody and horny for something different. Something he wanted but seldom had the balls to demand from life when sober. Evan-now did. He was a fucking animal about it, in fact.

The third dude, I’ll call him “Dad.” That’s how Evan referred to him, just after we cornered Ryan in the men’s head. Dad stood above the six-foot mark like the rest of them. The rest of us. He had a neat
buzz-cut of dark hair going silver at the edges and two of the biggest, low-swinging nuts a man could be blessed to claim as his own. You looked at the fucker and figured he’d place on anyone’s Hottest Top
Ten Studs list, no matter who conducted the poll. I don’t know if there was more to the relationship between Dad, Evan, and Flash beyond what I’ve so far told you. There’s so much about that weekend that’s still a mystery, even to me.

                                                                         ( the book to read the rest!)

From the Void: The Illustrations of Arkahno13

It's almost impossible to classify the demonic tinged creations of gay Mexican artist/illustrator Arkahno13. It's part romantic horror, part witchcraft/demonology, part Dungeons & Dragons, part Tom of Finland (minus the oversized manhood). It's fairly unique. Even Arkahno himself has a hard time giving it a genre. When I asked him what he would classify it as, he responded, "I never though about that, I don't know if there is such a thing, I guess some place between bara and dark illustration." Whatever you wanna call it, it's pretty great.

Aside from Arkahno's illustrations, there is not much information about him on the internet. So, I asked him for a little bit of background:
I'm 31 years old at this moment, I live in Guadalajara Jalisco, is a city in Mexico, you may say I'm not the typical gay guy, I love rock-industrial music, symbolisms, I'm also a bone collector, sometimes tattoo artist and sometimes musician. I started drawing when I was a child, during my adolescence I was into comics and manga so I drawed stuff like that just for fun, I started to put my love for men anatomy, dark ambients and some ideas in my drawings latter, and that become slowly in what I do now.
Since his imagery puts us in the mood for horror, my film loving coworker wanted to know what Arkahno's favorite scary movies were. "I love "The Eye" (Japanese version) and The Woman in Black. Ghosts are creepy in those ones." When asked what artists he follows, he replied with a surprisingly diverse list, "Zoe Lacchei, Nickie Charles, Chiara Bautista, Nick Kushner, Stuntkid, Gottfried Helnwein are my favourites in this moment."

If you would like to explore the world of Arkahno13 on your own, we suggest his Tumblr, DeviantArt, and Facebook pages!
