5 Medical Procedures to Make Your Butt More Aesthetically Pleasing
We’ve all heard about anal bleaching, but that’s just one of many medical procedures that can give your butt a cosmetic makeover. Longtime gay cultural writer Bryan Moylan spoke with “anal rejuvenation” doctors who offer these procedures, giving us insights into the array of available ass-thetics.
We should mention that while many skilled proctologists and colo-rectal surgeons can treat anus-based medical issues — like abscesses, anal warts, hemorrhoids, fissures and fistulas — many of the procedures listed below are not medically necessary per se and can result in permanent injury, even if ...
Bald Guys Are Seen as More Honest, Friendly and Socially Capable
People perceive bald men as “more intelligent, dominant, and overall sexier” than men who aren’t bald, according to a survey by Dr. Frank Muscarella, a clinical psychologist from Florida’s Barry University. (He is not bald, by the way.)
For his study, Muscarella and his research team asked participants to rate pictures of bald and hairy men on their perceived aggressiveness, physical attractiveness, social maturity (their honesty, emotional intelligence and social status) and diplomacy.
The results showed that most people perceived bald guys as being more diplomatic and socially mature but less aggressive ...

Film Yourself Having Sex in a Panda Costume and PornHub Will Donate $100 to Wildlife Conservation
PornHub has promised to donate $100 to panda conservation efforts for every video you upload of yourself having sex in a panda costume.
Animal conservationists have a lot of trouble saving the giant panda from extinction because the cute, cuddly creatures just won’t mate. Their low sex drive could well threaten their future on the planet.
The female panda’s mating season is a scant two to four days out of the year, and during that time males are often too busy eating and napping to seize the ...
Anti-LGBTQ Discrimination Costs Indonesia up to $12 Billion a Year
A new study found that anti-LGBTQ discrimination costs Indonesia’s economy between $900 million and $12 billion every year.
Researchers from the Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law released a study on the economic effects of anti-LGBTQ discrimination in Indonesia.

Some of the study’s findings include:
National laws don’t protect LGBTQ people, but there are local laws that effectively criminalize queerness.

It’s Never Too Late: 90-Year-Old WWII Vet Comes Out as Trans
Patricia Davies knows something about courage. During her time in the British Army, she served in India, East Africa and Palestine. She lost friends and almost died herself. But she’s just done one of the bravest things yet: Coming out as a transgender woman at the age of 90.
Though Davies had known she was a woman since she was three, she was afraid to come out. At the time, transgender issues weren’t understood. As she told the Sun, “Transgender wasn’t really known in those days. I would have been classed ...

New York Officers Accused of Arresting Queer Men on Bogus Masturbation Charges
If you’ve never been to the New York Port Authority bus terminal, it’s like an intergalactic space hub, but instead of aliens and astronauts hurrying off to their nearest teleporters and shuttles, it’s a bunch of harried travelers in jerseys and sweatpants hauling their luggage to the nearest discount bus or pretzel stand. The entire place looks like a mall and smells like a damp sock — it’s quite magical, except, you know, the opposite.
In the bathrooms of this depressing place plainclothes police officers allegedly targeted men who seemed ...
The Trump Administration Has Dropped Questions About LGBTQs From the 2020 Census
President Donald Trump is back to breaking his promises to the queer community. Today his administration submitted the list of data categories the 2020 Census and the American Community Survey would collect — and has dropped questions about sexual orientation and gender identity.
The report’s appendix proposed both “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” be included, which implies the questions were deliberately cut rather than an oversight. As of now the census only collects info about same-sex households. Congress Democrats have pushed for more in-depth questions to improve census results.
The Census collects information on the demographics ...
