piece is incorrect."

Prostitute  roadFirst legal male prostitute in Nevada speaks: "I think gay people are very put-together. I think they're very classy,
very well-organized people. They have great personalities. I have
nothing against them, but that's not me. And as the first male that's
entering this field legally in the entire United States, I'd like to
assert my rights and say that I can sit here and have a decent
conversation, but I draw the line at that. In the adult industry they
said, "Well you're not going to make enough money. The equation's
already set—you have to go gay for pay if you want to make the big
bucks." So, that's prostitution, in my opinion. That's disrespect to
the artist. My sphincter isn't for sale."

is reason enough to oppose her — though the group worries Brown is
moving to the left to try to win independents."

    THAT’S Nevada’s first male prostitute?!

    Hold on to your day job, pal. I can’t imagine women paying to have sex with you.

  2. SFshawn says

    Re: First legal male prostitute in Nevada.
    Yes your ass is for sale dude? Are straight men really this stupid?

  3. says

    “My sphincter isn’t for sale.”

    Why is it when straight men contemplate gays, their minds go straight for the butt? Also, shouldn’t the first legal male prostitute be cute?

  4. Wes says

    Oh you guys didn’t even see the best part in the male prostitute story. If you follow the link, this guy compares himself to Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks!!

  5. alguien says

    miep gies was, whether she cared for the moniker or not, a hero. this great lady deserved all of the accolades she received in her long life.

  6. MikeMick says

    As bad as the first legal hustler looks, what he says is even worse. He thinks he’s Plato, but he’s actually Play Doh.

  7. johnny says

    If that’s what “pay for gay” looks like, I think I’ll continue to get mine for free, thanks.

  8. Glenn says

    Wes beat me to it, but this was just jaw-dropping: “It’s just the same as when Rosa Parks decided to sit at the front instead of the back. She was proclaiming her rights as a disadvantaged, African-American older woman. And I’m doing the same.”

    And — as Choire at The Awl would say — that’s when I clicked “close tab”.

  9. TANK says

    That’s one unforunate looking he-whore. Apparently he’s as dumb as a brick, too. The latter’s common, the former is gonna lead to no sale for mr. ugly face…and oh yeah, women appreciate a pretty face more than men do. And besides, for the most part, women don’t need whores…hetro he whoring’s a lose/lose situation. Which leads me to conclude that this is an elaborate publicity stunt.

  10. Rich says

    Why on earth should we care about Elton John at this late date? He really defines “coaster”. hasn’t had a decent “album” in 30+ years and wouldn’t have afan base left unless he’d finally come out.

  11. Rodney says

    I don’t get it. Why is that guy blocking all those people on grindr? Take for example, unnamed guy next to our right of ‘BHG’. Not a bad looking guy at all.

    Guy with the gun- I can see why he blocked him.

  12. says

    This is the best male hooker we can come up with? What a homophobic tool and to compare himself to Rosa Parks? Total idiot!

  13. nicholas says

    My thoughts are in the “biz” you love sex regardless, and getting off, so this chump sure has a bit of an ego to be cut down to size. Sounds like he’s being a bit precious.

  14. Bayley says

    R.I.P Miep Gies! Truly one of the most AMAZING, beautiful, compassionate and giving souls to ever live. Her story is worth a thousand memories, words and tears. Hope all gays read the sacrifice she made by LITERALLY putting her life on the line to be able to secure Anne Frank and her families. Brings tears to my eyes every time I think about it.
    The most beautiful documentary of it can be found on you tube with Miep going to the Frank house for the first time since them going in to hiding and her walking us through every day life.
    Beyond touching.
    May she rest in piece in heaven.
