New Book to Explore A-Rod’s Sexuality?


Outsports reports that Selena Roberts, the Sports Illustrated co-writer who broke the recent story of Alex Rodriguez testing positive for steroids in 2004, has a book on the slugger coming out in May.

Arod2Among the nuggets that it supposedly tackles is A-Rod’s sexuality.

Bob’s Blitz, a sports gossip blog, reports: “The Blitz has learned Hit and Run: The Many Lives of Alex Rodriguez by Selena Roberts will be out May 19, 2009 – exactly one week before the Yanks head to…Texas to play the Rangers. It is rumored that the book may take a look at A-rod’s struggle with his sexuality as well as his steroid use. The NY Daily News once had a curious quote, “A petite stripper at the Hustler Club said A-Rod ‘likes the she-male, muscular type. They brought me up to the champagne room one time. I spun around once and that was it. I’m not his type.'”

    There are lots of rumors flying around NYC and MIA that A-Rod likes his women muscular and masculine, with a lean towards trans (you hear that, Madge?)…

    Still that doesn’t mean he questions or “struggles” with his sexuality. Plenty of hetero men like trans women.

    I think that would mean he likes girls with some muscle, physically fit women as opposed to the barbie type tiny little girls .It doesn’t mean he likes chicks with dicks. That girl is just bitter.

    As soon as I saw this post I knew Madonna would be mentioned. The venom towards her from insecure gay men never ceases to amaze me.

    As far as A-Rod goes, he can struggle with me anytime. The story itself is rife with gay panic, and homophobia. Of course that flew right over most of the empty heads here.

    “As soon as I saw this post I knew Madonna would be mentioned. The venom towards her from insecure gay men never ceases to amaze me.”

    Insecure? Really? I love Madonna but your crazy if you don’t realize girl is a mess and can’t get a laugh out stuff like her kabbalah water and her freakish build.

    Why is it that everytime someone makes a crack about Madonna some self important airhead has to leap to her defense? It was tolerable at first, everyone’s allowed to be a fanboy once in a while… but it’s time to tread in deeper waters and enjoy a sense of humor. Madonna can take care of herself without the army of devout lemmings.

    I don’t think you have to be insecure to not like Madonna. Like any pop artist, she’s not gonna appeal to everyone.

    not so sure the story is rife with gay panic or homophobia as much as just sensationalism. How readers of the upcoming book tho may unfortunately be rife with gay panic or homophobia.

    I think it’s just a comment out of context, and I would not read any more into it.

    Though I have absolutely no use for Major League baseball. They set wretched examples for our youth. The minor league’s are where men play for the sake of the sport.

    I am a fairly well adjusted gay male, and I am just not into Madonna. She just never did anything for me, artistically.

    I think it’s a generational thing. I grew up liking Bab’s or Liza more (and still do).

    That does not mean I hate Madonna; she’s just no on my radar as anything of interest.

    Jesus, on the other hand… I’ve already edited that blonde thing out of the pictures so my visual fantasies are not distracted.

    1/ The reason people defend Madonna is that she has done a hell of a lot to loosen up this countrys’ attitude towards people who are different. Simple. Do I think she’s as crazy as a loon? Hells yeah. However, while it’s fun to make fun of her, a lot of comments made are just over the line. If you can name anything that you’ve done to take yourself from the bottom and rise and stay on top for over 20yrs (which in showbiz esp for a woman is almost unheard of) all the while entertaning and helping people, please all of you truly hateful detractors, list them.

    I’m waiting.

    Uh huh.


    That pic is of A-Rod and his trainer, but it does look rather “Gay”. I wish. Though I’m sure he wouldn’t be looking my way if he was a ‘mo.

    I know plenty of straight guys who like that muscle woman look. I don’t get it, but, whatever. I think most of us guys would think we’d want the full on Jessica Rabbit type, but who knows?

    Agreed. I mean come on people!

    That picture came out a few years ago after A-Rod joined the Yanks. It was taken in Florida and the older man is a curandero friend of Alex. BTW, it has been rumoured for a long time that Alex’ sexuality is, um, fluid. He has long been known to be on the dl. It might explain a lot of the anguished complexity of A’s personality. He’s a very, very needy guy and for all his athletic gifts, good looks and wealth, he is about as neurotic and insecure as they come. He wore his wife out because of that. She just couldn’t take it anymore.

    This is so funny, i just so happen to come across this blog topic,after hearing a very juicy phone convo from one of my best friends that is an escort with ManDate here in New York.Its seems that his client last night was the famous A-ROD, and he described the man as a fabulous lover,very XXTREMLY-endowed,kind of snobbish,until he got comfortable,and he also liked to mess around WITHOUT condoms( asking my friend for anal sex bareback, saying he would pay extra. He explained that the evening started out when another man made a reservation for his “services” in a location in SoHo. My friend went to the location,and was ushered into what he said was a beautiful loft. The man that he thought was his client stayed in his clothes, and talked for a while. My friend thought that this was very unusual,because most men KNOW that his ” services” are by the hour, so usually as soon as he walks in the door of a client, its sex as usual, then he leaves. My friend said that the man was just talkin about all kinds of stuff, but was very well dressed, and well spoken, and was reminded that he was paying by the hour.This is when the gentleman told him that he was NOT the client,but someone else was. My friend has had dates with celebs before, and is used to “sexual handlers” that book services like his discreetly, as NOT to get back to the REAL client. My friend then said he heard someone come in down stairs,and heard them walking up the stairs. This was when A-ROD walked in. my friend said he looks even bigger in person, with huge arms. He was kind of rude, but had two glasses of wine,and seemed to mellow out. By that time that original man had left, and My friend was left their with a-rod. So after a few glasses of wine, a-rod simply unzips his pants,walks over and says nothing. During oral sex A-rod says nothing,but grunts, and groans, He then sits on the couch, and my friend gives him “the best blowjob of my life to make him ejaculate, as A-rod is HUGEEEEE. Needless to say, A-rod asked for bareback sex, and my friend ACTUALLY let him do it for an additional undisclosed sum. He said that A-Rod ejaculated inside of his anus,pulled out, went to the bathroom for a few minutes,then came back out and said only one word,….”Thanks papi”. My friend took this as his signal to get his things and leave. I would have NEVER BELIEVED THIS, but this dude is pretty reliable, and just a very “in your face,down to earth type of person”. PS He also said that A-Rod likes his nipples pinched rubbed or messaged during sex
