Just like Kissinger did, Cheney will probably stay out of Spain and some other European countries who know a thing or two about torture since there are citizens all over the world who were illegally detained and tortured by US of A.

I don't think there's much chance that the "can we just move on" administration will do anything.

Our culture separates out sexuality from everything else, simultaneously calling it "special" and "dirty," both base and regulated by god. We see these impossible contradictions played out all the time: The Church's abuse scandals, Tiger Woods, Larry Craig and on and on. Even gay guys like David Badash quitting Bilerico in a self-righteous huff over Mormon cock.

We need more integration of sexuality in our lives, not less. But anyone who believes that will get called all sorts of names. Sex Addict is probably the least offensive.

Hey FlipFlopsBoy and thanks for the two comments.

I've known for many years that I can't be monogamous. While I was in a committed, stable relationship, years ago, my partner and I both agreed to play outside of the relationship but with certain rules and parameters. Of course, there are risks involved, emotional and physiological, but adults have to negotiate risk all the time. Clear and open.

Later when my sexuality took a more perverse turn and I wrote about it on this blog, I was accused of being a sex addict. Hard to reconcile with my own wild happiness with my sex life at the time, but there ya go.

I will say: I have had great affection for every cock that's ever come at me through a glory hole. Objectified? Yes. Yet, the whole exchange remained human and non-alienating for me.

Hope you continue to check back and comment!

Yeah, but I forgot to include the photos of Grothesque's painting it.

Fixed now. ;-)

I'm still amazed that not one single person commented, not even a bleep or a gloat.

David, I'm with Bil on this one.

I've been writing a sex-focused blog since 2005 but I also post about queer politics, Obama, Prague, R.E.M., lots of film reviews, the Macintosh, piracy and whatever the hell else I wanted to write about. Mostly, I got complaints from porn junkies or fans of Prague's rent boy scene when I went "off topic."

My response, then and now, is, word for word, "Fuck you; it's my blog. I'll write what I want. When you start paying me maybe I'll take your desires into consideration. Until then, go start your own blog if you don't like what you read."

I resist, instinctively, anyone trying to tell me I can't masturbate with one hand and read while holding The History of Sexuality in the other.

Such compartmentalization damages culture, discourse, communities, individual and collective sexualities and identities. We would all be better off with a little more integration of some humane eroticism with other areas of our lives. That has been the queer contribution to the wider culture for centuries and conceding that in the name of "rights" sounds like too big a compromise for me. I won't do it and I can't do it. I don't much like Bil's reasoning or his tone or the binary opposition in his response to you but I think that was part of what he was trying to say.

But, more to your point: Um, Bilerico as a think-tank?! What were you thinking? I...uh...really? That's what you thought? Speechless. And I considered you well-read. ;-)

You have a great blog here, though, with an original voice and I read it all the time. Write what you want, how you want but if you ever decide to post photos of bulging wrestlers in singlets, I promise I won't make a fuss. ;-)

Every generation thinks it's more highly evolved than the previous but in reality it's simply the targets of oppression that change and sometimes the methods of control.

Libertines like you have to fight the same battles over and over

That's seems a reasonable distinction. I'll give it some thought.

Thanks for the thought.

My overall point stands, however.
