You said you want Too Much Information?

Blah blah, mature content, blah blah. Click elsewhere if you are not mature.

Got this off of Scotty’s The Other Side of Straight. He got it from Bent Collective who got it off of Sam's Live Journal site. This is the all powerful and hard hitting BIG GAY MEME! Well, what's life without a bit of hyperbole...

  1. How old were you when you knew you were gay?
    I remember being interested in boys as early as 6 years old but wasn't aware that it was being gay. In seventh grade, I was aware of being attracted to other boys, but it didn’t really seem sexual yet. By ninth grade I was definitely aware of the physical attributes of guys, and was very emotionally attracted to "one particular guy". At 16, I had gay sex, lots of it. By 18, I was pretty sure I was gay. And that that "one particular guy" wasn’t.

  2. Have you ever had sex with the opposite sex?
    No. Some heavy drunken grappling on the lawn by the observatory after a kegger my freshman year in college was as close as I got. And we kept our clothes on for the most part.

  3. Who was the first person you came out to?

  4. Are you out to your family?

  5. Do you want children?
    We thought about it for a few years. I’ve pretty much decided to devote my creative and nurturing energies in other directions, however.

  6. Do you have more gay friends or straight friends?
    Far more gay friends, at least in real life. Online, it’s probably the opposite. It took me years before I met straight people I felt I could trust. Even now I can count the number of straight male friends I know "in the flesh" on one hand.

  7. Were you out in school?
    High school, hell no. College, yes. I was active in the gay-lesbian community group, and served in a couple of leadership positions.

  8. Is your best friend the same sex as you?
    Yes. He’s my partner, my spouse, my best friend. My Boo.

  9. If your best friend is the same sex, have you ever had sex with them?
    Well, yeah.

  10. Have you ever done crystal meth?
    Fuck no. I’m not a prude about mood altering substances, but I’m not an idiot, either.

  11. Have you ever been in a sling?
    No. I’ve done some other “special menu” items, but I find sex games aren’t for me so much. They detract from the emotions of the experience for me, and those are far more interesting to me. One of the hottest things I ever did was with this guy I’d just met who wanted to “pretend we’re in love.”

  12. Have you ever done a 3-way?
    Yup. And 4. And 5, and 7. And 22. And some where I didn’t keep count. I'm not proud of it, but...oh, hell yes I am.

  13. Have you ever dressed in drag?
    In the privacy of my own home. I have a very masculine body and face and it doesn’t work well, though I look good in eye makeup.

  14. Would you date a drag queen?
    I have. It was a fling, and I don’t know if I could have a long term relationship with someone who was truly transgendered female. I’m very attracted to masculine energy. Therefore it stand to reason that I find some FtM dudes are pretty hot. Of course, this is all theoretical, since I’m not looking for anyone to date.

  15. Are you a top/bottom or truly versatile?
    Versatile. Although I tend to find this kind of conversation kind of limited. There are lots of kinds of sex that make those kinds of terms pointless and boring. It’s almost the worst question to raise with me if you really want to have sex with me. My stock answer is “you’ll know when you need to know.” Which will probably be never.

  16. Have you seen an uncircumcised penis?

  17. Have you had sex with someone of a different ethnicity?

  18. Have you ever barebacked?
    Yes. But to be fair, I was out and active before AIDS was a known threat. I’ve been much more circumspect since then, and slips have been seldom and I’ve been very lucky (and horrified) when I slipped.

  19. How many Cher CDs do you own?
    None. I think my sister has our childhood LP of Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves from about 1971. Thank you Columbia House, and "12 LP's for a penny!".

  20. Name of your first love?
    Redacted. See question 1. Though he shares the same name as a famous billionaire.

  21. Do you still talk to him/her?

  22. Does size matter?
    Not particularly. It’s not owning the equipment; it’s knowing how to use it.

  23. Biggest turn on?
    I’m a mild voyeur and an exhibitionist. See question 12.

  24. Biggest turn off?

  25. Ever been harassed due to you orientation?
    Sure. Been called “faggot” at Southdale by suburban wannabe-thugs. I don’t find that threatening – it’s just insecurity, and it makes me chuckle. Plus I was walking arm in arm with a guy. I mean, did they think I didn’t realize?

    One Halloween downtown, some suburban dude in his lacrosse outfit (so imaginative) stuck his stick in my groin as we passed each other, barely missing the jewels. Our respective friends dragged us off in opposite directions before I started swinging at him. Don’t remember what I was wearing. It may have been my “sassy devil” outfit.

  26. Worst gay stereotype that applies to you?
    That I’m over emotional and slightly effeminate. Tends to make me overcompensate in the macho asshole department on occasion (see question 25).

  27. Ever been to a pride rally?
    Yes, several. And I used to have a good time before they became all about target marketing.

  28. Would you marry if you could?
    Yes. We already had a community ceremony with our friends and family. It would be nice if the government would stop discriminating against us and giving straights special rights.

  29. Would you rather be rich and smart or young and beautiful?
    Hell, I don’t know. I liked being younger, but I wasn’t as smart as I am now. I’ve never been classically beautiful, but I’ve been sexy, and I’ve been with lots of beautiful guys. I’ve never been rich. It might make a nice change.

  30. Do you sculpt your eyebrows?
    No, just trim the long ones.

  31. Do you trim your body hair?
    I periodically run the trimmer over my front, cutting everything down to about ¼ inch. Just looks and feels more groomed. If you’re not classically beautiful, grooming counts.

  32. Ever had sex with more than one person in a day?
    Ha, ha, ha. See item 12 above. My personal daily orgasm record is 12, but that involved only one other strangely beautiful and wonderful person. We talked and had sex, and talked, and had more sex for about 7 hours straight.

  33. Ever been to an orgy?

  34. Have you dated your best friend's ex?
    Again, and again. Funny how that works out sometimes.

  35. Would you vote for Hillary Clinton if she ran for president?
    Dunno. At this point I’d vote for anyone who wants to end the war and restore civil liberties in this country, and isn’t in the pocket of the religiously bigoted. I don’t think Ms. Clinton would be the best the Democrats could do, however. But they’re a scattered mess right now.

  36. Do you want monogamy in your relationships?
    For the most part yes. My earlier relationships were more open, but I’m a bit too insecure for regular polyamory, and it takes too much mental effort. But I don’t think the occasional sexual fling means things are over. Both Boo and I have had our slips, but it’s not the end of the world. I think I’d prefer not knowing as long as it’s meaningless.

  37. Do you believe in true love?
    I believe in love. Do y’all play The Sims 2? The Romance sims are fascinating to me – they strike other players as being giant horndogs, thinking about nothing but sex. But the reality is that they can’t sleep with anyone unless they’ve fallen in love first, and there’s reciprocation by the other party. And jealousy rears its head whenever two or more of their beloveds are in the same room. To me they’re the most complex, and most human of the sim types to play. And the hardest.

    I fall in love easily. I love people generally. I’ve loved many men, in many ways. But I don’t believe that being in love is the same as wanting to live with someone, or share my life’s experiences with a partner. That’s a different, related, and much more complicated emotion. I’m starting to wonder if you can even have that life-sharing feeling without necessarily being in love.

  38. Do you have any tattoos?
    Nope. Interferes with reinventing yourself every few years, I would think.

  39. Do you have any piercings?
    Nope. I pierced my own left nipple several years ago, but got tired of it within a few months.

  40. Would you date a smoker?
    Not seriously.

  41. Do you get HIV tests every 6 months?
    Not that often. You have to be having sex to make it worthwhile, and after all, I’m married and over 40...

  42. Do you know anyone who has died from H.I.V.?
    HIV? No. AIDS? Yes. Jesus. So many.

  43. Do you know what Stonewall was?
    You're kidding, junior.

  44. Strangest place you have had sex?
    Cemetery? Church basement? Public beach?

  45. Strangest place you've woken up?
    Probably the apartment of the North Central Bible College student with whom I had a post-disco hot fling. The giant Jesus posters and Christian pop music were a bit disconcerting.

  46. Are your best years behind or in front of you?
    Don’t know. I’m always uncertain about the future, and unnerved by the past.

  47. Favorite porn movie?
    Hmm. While there are lots that are hotter, it’s hard to beat Stryker Force for being a campy laugh as well.

  48. Are you in love now?

  49. Ever been in love with a straight guy/girl?

  50. Did you ever have sex with him/her?

  51. Have you ever been to a nude beach?

  52. Have you ever been to a bath house?

  53. Ever had sex in public?

  54. Have you ever gotten into a relationship for Money or Security, instead of Love and Friendship?
    No. It’s all about love for me in this lifetime.

  55. Have you ever stayed in a relationship for Money or Security, instead of Love and Friendship?

  56. Have you ever keyed someone’s car?
    No. But I’m tempted when I see Hummers.

  57. Have you ever fantasized killing someone not famous?
    Dunno. Are local politicians famous?

  58. Have you ever witnessed someone dying?
    Aren’t we all in the process of dying? Alright, I know what you mean. I’ve been around the sick, the elderly, and the terminal. But I’ve never been there for the final ending.

  59. Have you ever contemplated suicide?

  60. Are you glad you're still here?
