Gary's Diet Diary: The eBook

I had already created (via Mobipocket Creator) an eBook of the first thirteen weeks of my current reducing diet. Volume ][ was well underway in NoteTab Pro and Microsoft Excel, when I decided to consolidate the files. After all, it's all Gary's Diet Diary, innit? I'll never be able to sell it, what with all the pictures from the net that I haven't sought permission to use, like all the ecards and cartoons and whatever.

I've deleted the appendices. The pics of medical devices are scattered throughout, wherever mentioned, the prescriptions are turned into a simple pic of a table and included where they were prescribed, the graphs of blood glucose level were just flat dropped. The first two weeks, where they dropped in line with norms, might have been interesting, but let's face it—watching levels rising and falling within the norms is more boring than watching bread toast. The graphs of weight loss over time might have been good, but a single graph is better, and really makes the point.

Oh, and I changed the cover.

True Facts About The Duck (Penis)

http://www.erosblog.com/2014/07/22/true-facts-about-the-duck-penis/

http://www.erosblog.com/?p=12152

As a general rule not without its exceptions, I have long avoided the “bizarre facts about animal sexuality” front when trying to find sex blogging topics. No reason, really, just how I’ve done it. But back in 2009 when he was guest-blogging here regularly, Dr. Faustus could not resist the temptation on several occasions. Perhaps the most memorable was this little post about complicated duck penises.

Well, now there’s a funny and cute little YouTube video that covers much of the same ground:

Savage Love: The boys in the bandwidth

http://www.avclub.com/article/boys-bandwidth-207162?utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=feeds

I am a gay man and have been in a relationship with my GGG boyfriend for more than three years. We are in our early 20s and have a good sex life. I just discovered that he has been engaging in what can only be described as cyber infidelity. He had a secret email account, posted on Craigslist M4M, and also had an Adam4Adam account. About once a week, while I was at work in the evenings, he would exchange photos and engage in conversations with other men. He claims he never met with any of them and it was just to exchange photos. He let me look at his secret email account, and there was nothing that pointed to any physical meet-ups. I asked him to delete his accounts, and he did. I am completely shocked, as we have an intimate and loving relationship. He is ashamed and understands ...

SL Letter of the Day: Watch Safely

http://slog.thestranger.com/slog/archives/2014/07/22/sl-letter-of-the-day-watch-safely

I am on vacation for all of July. But I've invited Mistress Matisse to handle the Savage Love letters of the day. Mistress Matisse is a writer, a dominatrix and a sex worker’s rights activist. She has a blog here and twitter here. The archive of her Stranger column, Control Tower, is here. Mistress Matisse will be answering your questions all week.

I'm a 27-year-old gay guy living in a medium-sized city, happily single. Over the last few years, I've had this recurring fantasy more and more: to watch a straight couple having sex. I started watching straight porn, and then I've ended up going to a few swingers clubs, where sometimes I end up being able to watch something hot and sometimes I don't, but I can never be really close up for reasons of etiquette. I've posted a couple of ads on CL, but those have never panned out to anything real, mostly because I'm not looking for a relationship, or to have sex with the woman... and also, perhaps, because there are lots of CL flakes.
I'm going on a business trip to a larger city next month, and it occurs to me that I could fulfill my fantasy in an ethical way by hiring sex workers. I've never paid for any sexual services before, but I have no moral qualm with it. However, no matter how much I Google, I can't figure out how I would find two escorts that would be willing to come together (pun intended). I can't find an individual escort who discusses the issue on his/her site and I can't find a discussion board or forum that mentions it.  What should I do?

Wanna Watch Straight Sex

Mistress Matisse's response after the jump...

You sound like someone I would have enjoyed having as a client when I did straight sex work, and I know lots of female sex workers who would find your request enjoyable to fulfill. “Someone wants to pay me to have sex with a man of my choice? Swee-et!” If you can find the right pair of people, this could be a good experience for everyone involved.
So I applaud your instincts about how to get your fantasy satisfied, and I have suggestions for how to proceed, but I also have a word of caution. Part of our country’s current ridiculous and harmful attitude towards sex is that you can legally buy porn, and you can pay to enter a swing club to observe other patrons getting busy, but - if you offer money directly to people to watch them have sex, you could end up being arrested. The US is in the midst of an intense moral panic and a concurrent legal crackdown on people exchanging sex for money, even if it’s done in private by consenting adults. Mainly it is sex workers themselves who are arrested, but there’s been a sharp increase in stings of would-be clients as well. You need to be careful here.
(It is true that if you were arrested, and you took the case to court and fought it, you might be found Not Guilty on the basis that you did not ask these people to have sex with YOU. But this would be after the press had published your name and your picture as part of their client-shaming “End Demand” campaign. At that point, whether you were ever actually convicted of a crime becomes fairly trivial.)
Generally, I advise people seeking a sex work services provider for the first time to choose an independent sex worker, who has a solid web presence and a good professional reputation that goes back at least a year or two. Such a person is more likely to correctly intuit your wishes and be invested in creating a good outcome. In your case, I’d also suggest someone who has done porn or cam shows in addition to escorting.
Anywhere sex work is criminalized, there are two rules of initial contact with sex workers: you do not talk about sex, and you do not talk about money. This naturally makes it difficult for people who are doing sex work to safely establish their boundaries, or for those hiring sex workers to ask for what they actually want. But that’s how it works – both sides must rely on euphemisms. So when you contact an escort by phone or email, definitely don’t say “I don’t want to have sex with you, I just want to watch you two have sex.” Say something like, “I was looking for a lady who has a boyfriend or husband that she could bring with her, because I’d like to spend time with a couple.” The phrases to employ are “spend time” or “enjoy the company of”. Believe me, an escort knows what this means. By saying “a couple,” you’re indicating that you want them to interact with each other. I can’t think of a good coded way to say, “But I just want to watch”, and I’m not sure it’s crucial to communicate that part before you meet anyway. If you feel really secure in the sex work service provider you’re dealing with, you might say something like, “I’d enjoy watching you give each other sensual massages” or “I’d enjoy watching an erotic performance.” I would not get any more specific than that.
You could also approach a male sex worker - which might lower your odds of getting busted, since adult male sex workers are largely ignored by anti-sex work crusaders, unless they are on the street. But outside of major cities, there are fewer of them. Use the same language, however.
If she/he mentions the per-hour fee, just say something like, “Yes, I understand.” If it’s not mentioned, assume it is double whatever the individual sex worker’s rate is. When they arrive, either give the money to them without comment or just put it down where they can see it, whichever seems indicated. After this point, there will be a little so-let’s-get-acquainted chitchat, and it’s probably okay to say something like “I’d like to just watch you two.”
I hope you get the experience you want, and I also hope that as you go through life, you remain aware of your status as “someone who has hired a sex worker”. Please view anti-sex work news stories with a sharply critical eye, don’t make dead-hooker jokes, and whenever possible, vote for politicians and policies that don’t stigmatize sex workers.

SL Letter of the Day: With Mistress Matisse!

http://slog.thestranger.com/slog/archives/2014/07/21/sl-letter-of-the-day-with-mistress-matisse

I am on vacation for all of July. But I've invited Mistress Matisse to handle the Savage Love letters of the day. Mistress Matisse is a writer, a dominatrix and a sex worker’s rights activist. She has a blog here and twitter here. The archive of her Stranger column, Control Tower, is here. Mistress Matisse will be answering your questions all week.

I haven't found much information on how to ask a couple to sleep with you, so figured I'd ask the guru! I'm back in America for the summer and recently met the neighbors I share a wall with. I'm a 22 year old female and they're in their thirties. I was up late talking and drinking with them recently and have been fantasizing about having a threesome with them. I've always been bi-curious and am very attracted to both of them. Should I go for it and ask, risking future-but-temporary awkwardness or just enjoy their friendship?



Little Unicorn Seeking Two

Mistress Matisse's response after the jump...

You’re lucky I got your letter, because I have seduced a lot of couples.  Based on my vast experience of getting into two people’s pants simultaneously, here’s the advice I probably should give you: don’t hit on your neighbors. If you are dealt a shocked rejection by them, that will be awkward and possibly painful, and if you are met with an enthusiastic initial reception that then turns into a sexual disaster (as these things sometimes do,) that will also be awkward and possibly painful.
However, I myself have had any number of sexual encounters that were ill-advised, but they were also a hell of a lot of fun. And if you’re only living there temporarily? What the hell, LUST, let’s seduce your neighbors!
Here’s my suggested strategy: don’t just drop the idea on the table like a kitten bringing home a dead bird. Although you’ll only be around for the summer – and if you haven’t mentioned that to them, you definitely should – take a week or two to engage in some flirtation and courtship first. Start with her. It’s not true to say that the female half of the couple is always the gatekeeper in these situations, but it’s true often enough to make it a good bet. So if you win her to the idea, odds are you’re more than halfway there.
Seducing a straight (or straight-ish) woman is far less complex than some rom-com movies would make it seem. Who and what you are is not crucially important – the crucial thing is when you’re with her, she feels beautiful and fascinating and special. The first part is verbal: listen attentively to what she says, follow where she leads conversationally, remember what she says for future reference, and whenever possible, say pleasing, complimentary things to her. The second is physical: smile at her while holding eye contact a bit longer than usual, and stand/sit just a trifle closer than necessary. Whatever level of social touching you’ve already established, move that up just a little bit.
There’s a dance to be danced here, so when you do these things, watch closely to see how she responds, and adjust your level of intensity to suit her mood.  If she backs up – physically or in her manner – then reel your energy back in without a fuss. Don’t act like a whipped puppy though, and don’t slink off and give up. However, if you initiate a more intimate mood and connection on several different occasions and she consistently quells it - give it up, she’s not into you.
At the same time, court him too – but court him like a buddy. One of the common points of mission failure in a F->FM seduction is triggering a jealousy response in the Mrs, so don’t play the sex-bomb to him yet. At this stage, the idea is that you and he should be friends because you have something in common. (Which is: you both think his wife/girlfriend is HOT.) So, friendly attention and respect, with just a hint of feminine admiration.
At no point say or do anything to one of them that you wouldn’t say if the other was present. Assume they will tell each other everything, and if either of them feels like you’re being a wedge between them rather than an ally, your seduction is doomed. If at any point they openly acknowledge and decline your attentions, then don’t try to deny it, or attempt to change their minds. Just remove yourself from their presence with a minimum of fuss and a maximum of dignity.
If that all goes well, the way I’d bring this to a climax, so to speak, is to invite them over to your place to watch a movie, and drink some wine or smoke pot or whatever. (A movie is a nice lead-in because you can pick out a movie with a hot threesome scene in it.) And there you are, the three of you on the couch, and it’s perfectly natural that you’d turn to them and remark, “You know, I’ve never had a threesome, but I’d really like to.” (Pause) “With a really cool, attractive couple, who have a good relationship, who I really liked and respected. Have you ever done that?” In my experience, if you’ve gotten that far successfully, it is seldom necessary to say much more before somebody starts kissing.
With a couple, the obstacles are more than twice as many. Prepare yourself for the idea that your seduction will fail, for reasons that have nothing to do with you. But do not despair, LUST! Consider this a learning experience. If you’re bi-curious and couples-curious, I assure you that your life will be full of opportunities to be someone’s unicorn.
