Just got back from a really hot hookup this morning, and I was thinking about how fortunate we all are here. I remember life after AIDS came but before PrEP, and I also spent most of my adult life in a monogamous relationship with a woman, who (as much as I love her) just doesn’t want sex as often as i do. I’ve also lived in places where it’s dangerous to be gay.
And now, I have apps, medical protection, a *relatively* gay-friendly culture, and so many hot boys eager to fuck I’ll never run out. We are among a tiny percentage of men who have ever existed to get this much ass so safely and confidently. We’re lucky/fortunate/whatever you want to call it. It’s so great!
I should think about that privilege more often, and try to help our friends from other sexual minority groups who face bigger problems. No promises, but maybe I’ll go volunteer at some nonprofit that helps trans people, or gay teenagers in backwards states or countries… it’s the least I can do in between all the sex.
