REMEMBER, Safety first!!! It may take a few
dates to work up to “The Deed,” but when
you get there make sure you have
communicated your needs clearly and
honestly. Negotiate, talk about health and
safety, which means talking
about such things as HIV &
STD status. Also be willing to communicate what you like, and don’t like,
AND, make sure that you have everything you need for a fun time, (you
know-things like condoms & lube, and a great sense of imagination).
If you have burning questions that you’re too shy to ask…

recently opened my own business and a buddy of mine has
been bugging me to come visit
the new office because he
wants to open his own place too. He
is a sexy guy who my partner and I
have known for years. 5’8”, goatee,
shaved head, thick and stocky. Sharp
blue eyes and that look that says he’s ready.
A hot sexy fireplug of a bear. I have always
found him attractive, very attractive, and I get
a pretty good vibe that he finds me attractive
too. (I’m in my 40’s big, broad—some call me
“burly” with salt & pepper hair and a full beard.)
But this guy is a friend of ours and we don’t
have an open relationship. So it’s always been
a look–don’t touch kind of thing.

OK, so he gets there at 4:00, I know he has

shorts and a t-shirt. Faintly glowing with sweat,
looking too cool behind his shades. As soon as
he hits the AC in my office his nipples pop to
attention under his snug T. We hug and I start
to give him the tour. He is half-heartedly asking
me about the office furniture, and I am stumbling to answer—something about how hard it
was to decide between oak and walnut.
Next thing you know, I have him against the
wall sucking face. He is unbuttoning my shirt; I
am pulling up his t-shirt, hands wandering
everywhere. Tongues are tangling and
wrestling. We have fallen into each other and
[
there is no turning back. Then the next thing
you know, we’ve given in to full-on passion. He
drops to his knees and starts to open my belt.
My cock is straining the fly of my khakis. I have
to stop him—not here in the front office—not
with the window right on Broadway; I lead him
back to the office bathroom.
As soon as we hit the bathroom clothes fly off
and we fall to the cool tile floor. He has the
perfect cock for his body. THICK. A beautiful 6”
power plug that I can barely get the condom
on, let alone my hand around it. But I manage
to get it on and then into my mouth. He is

moaning and growling as I work his rock hard
tool with my lips, tongue and throat. My hands
cup his balls and gently start to tug. This drives
him crazy—and makes my cock jump every
time he gasps and groans. He grabs my head
and firmly pulls me up so we are face-toface, “Kiss me now—I want to taste my
cock on your tongue.” And so we
kiss deeply, passionately, like the
bears in heat that we are.
Turns out he leaks as much precum as I do, and I drip like a
faucet! As we are making out,
our cocks are rubbing together
and sliming our bellies. We are
humping and grinding and
kissing. He starts to twist my

nipples and I throw my head back in a complete animal reaction. My nipples are a hot spot for me and he
reads my reaction perfectly. He sucks my left nipple
into his mouth and starts to test my limits with his
teeth. My right nipple is pierced and he starts tugging
on the ring while he chews on the left one. I am
seeing stars!
After a good nipple work out, we start making out
again. Start jacking each other while we keep
kissing. He sucks my tongue deep into his mouth
and I suck back until I get his deep into mine. I am
working his slick cockhead in one hand and pulling
his balls with the other. He is stroking my cock with
one hand, and has the other on the back of my head,
making sure our liplock stays in place. We are both
getting close. Real close. You know how it is when
the connection is so strong, when your breathing is
in sync, when you just know. So in one perfect
stroke, and one perfect twist, we both gasp and
shoot our loads. Big, hot, sticky loads. All over cocks
and balls and bellies. Breathless. Fallen into each
other. In the glow leaning together against the wall.
Hot. Damn.
We finally come to and realize it is almost 6! I sure am
glad I had a shower installed in the office. No time for
any shower play, we are both now very late…it is an
all-business clean-up, and we are quickly on our
respective ways.

Dear Dr. Dick,
I recently came out and have been enjoying a lot
of gay sex! I’ve been told to get tested, and now I
have this weird discharge on my penis & pain
when peeing. My friends say it’s chlamydia and
that I need to run to the STD Clinic. But I
thought chlamydia’s only for girls?
—Young and Naive
Dear Y & N,
It’s good you are enjoying gay sex. But it’s best that you enjoy SAFE gay sex!
Your friends are definitely right that you need to get tested and you could have chlamydia; but
you could also have something else, like gonorrhea. Let’s start by clarifying that: CHLAMYDIA is
NOT just a girl’s problem, and I’ll write a bit more about that. Call your nearest STD Clinic and
set up an appointment ASAP.

What is chlamydia?
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by
a bacteria called Chlamydia trachomatis. It can spread from
person to person during sexual intercourse when a person’s
mucous membranes come into contact with an infected
person. It can be transmitted without complete insertion of a
penis into the anus. It is less likely, although possible, to be
transmitted to the throat during oral sex.
Penis infected with chlamydia
Should you worry about chlamydia?
If left untreated, infections can lead to prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate gland), urethral
scarring, infertility, or epididymitis (inflammation of the epididymis, a structure on each testis).
Chlamydia makes it easier for an HIV negative person to acquire HIV if your partner is carrying
the virus, and rectal chlamydia may increase chances of getting HIV ten to twenty-fold. If you
already have HIV and have chlamydia, you could be 8-10 times more likely to shed HIV in your
semen and increase your risk of infecting others with HIV.
What does chlamydia look like?
Symptoms of chlamydia usually appear from
1-3 weeks after infection, but then usually go
away, even if left untreated. Many people infected
with chlamydia never have any symptoms at all.
Men may experience discharge from the head of
the penis or the anus; pain or itching at the head
of the penis; and/or pain with urination. 50% of
infected men have no symptoms. Sometimes
chlamydia is like gonorrhea (GC), another
bacterial infection, which also causes discharge
Chlamydia microorganisms
from the penis and pain or burning on urination.
These infections can be distinguished by culturing
the discharge. GC also makes it easier to acquire and transmit HIV.
Now what?
Get tested right away. If you are infected, chlamydia is cured with antibiotics. Your partner(s)
should be tested as well. Continue to get tested every 3 months for HIV & STD. Start this
regimen and use condoms with all partners. There are plenty of options to choose from.
For more information, call the HIV/STD Hotline at 206-205-7837 or Toll-free: 800-678-1595

I decided to go to Capitol Park, downtown
because I was so fucking horny. Plus, I
had a load of sweet juice that needed to
come out.
So, I went to use the bathroom at this taco
joint right by the park because I had just
stuck my hand in some wet shit that was in
this dumpster. I guess I better wear gloves
next time!
Anyway, after I was done washing my
hands, this hot sexy man child, you know 18
or so, came in to pee and pulled out this 10
inches! Good God, I thought, I had to put
my hands over my eyes because they almost
popped out. And hit the fucking wall!

“Please bathe often. You never know
when dick may come!”
“Hi,” said the guy, “My name is Flame and you
want to suck my man pole?”
And then I told the guy that he should wash more
often—if he’s doing speed and wanting to have sex.
“Yes,” I said.
I could tell he was on speed because as he was
taking a piss, he was drinking white port (a bottle), pulling on his foreskin and popping the
bumps on his face and neck.
“Well, start sucking cock!”
I bent down on my knees and thought, “Fuck,
what the hell is that smell?”
I stood up and took a long hard look at his man
tool, and I saw this thick wet juice
dropping slowly off his tool!
“You stupid bitch! If I wanted some cheese, I
would have gone to Safeway.”
Oh, readers—you’re wondering why I wanted to
suck his dick?
Because it was BIG—I could care less about his
bumps.
Note: Please all you users—Please bathe often.
You never know when dick may come!

Tracey’s Tips & Tricks
Getting through
the Holidaze
✘
Put first things first.
✘
Eat, drink and get enough rest…
✘
EAT—This means eat something every 4 hours, especially when
you are partying. If that means a piece of toast, spoonful of
peanut butter, or a cup of yogurt, SOMETHING other than dick
and jizz needs to be in you. Your body needs fuel to work right.
✘
DRINK—When you party with Tina. I’m
not gonna preach about what you’re
putting in your body…BUT, you
do need an extra amount
of liquid because of the
chemicals in Tina.
✘
WATER WATER
WATER. More
than the 8 servings
of 12 oz. If you can’t
handle water put a twist
of lemon in your glass.
Think of your body as a living
container of water.
AZ fall 06
10/1/06
1:41 PM
Page 16
Healthy water has water going in and
out. Don’t stagnate your body’s water.
Keep things moving.
✘
REST—Yes, dear Prudence, party grls
need rest too. You can rest when you
party. Kick’n back, laying down, read or
stare at some hot babes picture if you
can’t sleep. Close the eyes. Get at least
1 hour of rest every 24 hours. I know
you can do it.
✘
Plan your high.
Whenever possible plan your high. Have
your hit, kit, lube and condoms ready.
When you’ve done your hit. PUT YOUR
KIT AWAY. It helps you enjoy your high
w/out tripp’n on the next hit. If you’re
gonna get high...do it right. Don’t
waste the dope be’n stupid
✘
Breathe it out.
Things get too heavy. Festivities and
family just push that GRRRR button.
Take a looong sloooow breath. Do like a
YOGA breath. You’ll be surprised what
conscious breath can do to bring peace to mind.
“Yes, dear
Prudence,
party grls
need rest too.”.
✘
Talk it out.
If something is bothering you, talk about it.
Then drop it. Its over. Move on.
✘
Break it up.
Take things one step at a time. Let a big task or
activity be segmented. Take a breather break. Take a quick walk. Call a friend. Point is giving
yourself some space from something helps the tension build up stop.
