Photos of sad boys; message from an unhappy gay skateboarder ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I normally post upbeat photos of smiling, sexy guys enjoying life. Hey, that’s what this site’s supposed to be about. But yesterday, I received a message from a boy named Bryce, age 16, who lives in a small town in Utah, he didn’t say exactly where. Here’s some of what Bryce wrote:

“Hi, Martin. I found your website by Googling the words “gay skateboarder”, and I came across a bunch of old posts about gay guys who skate. I didn’t find any recent ones, but reading the ones I found helped me feel better about myself.

“I realized I was gay about two years ago, but I kept my feelings to myself. The town I live in is heavily Mormon and real conservative. Gay sexuality is frowned upon.

“Anyway, I developed a deep crush on a guy in my neighborhood, and a few days ago, I made the mistake of telling him how I felt. Let’s just say things didn’t go well. He told me he’d keep my secret to himself, but also said I shouldn’t speak to him anymore, that he found my feelings for him creepy.

“I feel awful, now. And lonely, too. I wish I could run away to someplace where gay men are accepted, but I have to finish high school. I know it’s important. Thanks for reading this message.”

I responded to Bryce privately, and I sure hope he’ll be okay, but I find it so depressing that in this day and age, gay boys and men still feel the sting of discrimination, especially boys who are stuck in situations like Bryce’s. If you are one of these boys, please know that a time will come when you’ll be free to live an openly gay life, and accepted by your friends for who you really are.

I was up early this morning. I devoted 2-1/2 hours to edits on my novel-in-progress, and now it’s 11:30 AM. I’ll read the newspaper, and then after lunch, I’ll visit the YMCA in the city for a workout and lap-swimming session, my first in a week, due to the medical procedure I had performed on me last Wednesday. I’m feeling great, and looking forward to the rest of my day. I’m not sure what I’ll do with my evening, but that’s okay. Have a nice Monday, everyone, and try to keep smiling, even if not everything in your life is rosy. ๐Ÿ™‚

Another sexy rent boy; nice night on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

What’s better than a sexy rent boy beckoning you to join him for a swim in the pool? Answer: nothing. Imagine spending an afternoon with him on pool deck chaises?

“Andre, I can’t wait to get you into our hotel room. You know what’s in store right?”ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

“Yes, Martin, I do.”

I had a good run today, around four PM. Okay, it was hot and humid, but a nice breeze blew, and I did the entire two miles with no problem.

After my run, I drank two beers before climbing into the shower. Then I hit our island seafood market for fresh shrimp.ย I cooked my favorite shrimp and pasta dish, flavored with fresh herbs from my garden, and combined with a fresh spinach salad. The meal was delicious, and then a friend and I visited my timeshare for a swim in the pool and a soak in the hot tub. The night was breezy and cool. What a great way to cap off my Sunday.

Sleep well, friends. ๐Ÿ˜‰

In praise of rent boys. Why aren’t they legal here?


Hi, friends and readers:

Four summers in a row, back in the mid-to-late 2000’s, I rented flats in Berlin, Germany for three months, to escape the Florida heat. Berlin’s a great city, with superb public transportation and many parks. Prostitution is also legal there, and lovely rent boys can be found on the Internet at reasonable prices. The boys are quite versatile in the bedroom, and always squeaky clean. You simply send them an e-mail or text message, and they show up whenever you wish.

Now that’s what I call civilized.

Sadly, in prudish Florida and most other states, prostitution is illegal, and why? This is 2019, for god’s sake, and isn’t it about time we caught up with the rest of the western world? I mean, how’d you like to have the young man in the upper photo climb intoย yourย car? Yummy ….

Now, I know the boy to the left here looks a little…rough around the edges, but I love his lanky limbs, his big feet and smooth skin. I’ll bet he’d be a handful in the sack. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well, I watchedย The Deer Hunterย last night, and what an amazing film it was. The screenplay, acting and cinematography were superb. But by the time it was over, I felt emotionally exhausted. I poured myself a glass of wine and climbed into bed with a book. I went to sleep around 11:30 PM, and didn’t wake up until 8:30 this morning.

Isn’t the guy to the left here beautiful. I’d hire him once a week if I could. Yummy …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s a sunny day, here on the island, but quite warm and the humidity’s higher than yesterday, but that’s okay. I have much to do in the editing department, as I continue to polish my novel-in-progress. I’ll read today’s newspaper and take care of correspondence, and around four PM I’ll take a two-mile run for some exercise.

I put on about six pounds on the 15-day cruise I took, back in late March and early April, but now I’ve taken it all off and I’m feeling fit.

Have a nice Sunday, everyone.

Sexy Seth Segura; sunny morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’ve posted the photo to the left here before, but I didn’t know the boy’s name. Now I do. He’s Seth Segura, a guy who’s known to those devoted to Instagram and other such social media sites. I don’t know anything more about Seth than that, but he sure is sexy–great hair and skin, and a nice athletic build. Definitely boyfriend material. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well, I dragged my butt out of bed at a reasonable hour this morning, after spending a quiet evening at home last night. I have a loosely planned day ahead. I’ll work on edits for my novel-in-progress for a while. Then, after lunch, I’ll take a three-mile walk on the beach. It’s a nice, sunny day outdoors, so why not?

I have one more day of recovery from the medical procedure I went through on Wednesday, so I can’t do anything too strenuous, but I’ll get a bit of yard work done, and some easy housework.

Here’s another, more recent photo of Seth as he looks today. He’s a handsome guy, isn’t he? I wonder if he has a boyfriend? Seth, why don’t you pay me a visit in Florida? I’ll split the airfare with you. Yummy …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Someone wrote to ask me if I have a boyfriend right now, and I told him, “Not really. I see four different guys on occasion, but no one I’d consider as a partner I’d actually live with. After putting up with the duplicitous creep I shared my life with for seven years, I’m a little more selective about who I let into my world. I’d rather live single than deal with selfishness on a daily basis.”

I’m not sure what I’ll do with my Saturday evening. Normally, I plan something with a friend, or I arrange a date, but I didn’t feel like making a commitment, so I’ll probably watch a Netflix DVD I just received, one of my favorite movies of all time,ย The Deer Hunter,ย with Robert DeNiro, Meryl Streep and Christopher Walken. It’sย a mind-blowing film about the Vietnam War and its effect on the people of my generation.

Have a nice Saturday, everyone.

Young Aaron Carter, the ultimate blond youth ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you like blond guys, there was never a more beautiful one than Aaron Carter, in his early years. Sadly, he abused drugs and developed mental health issues, plus he tatted up his body to the point he isn’t even attractive anymore. How sad ….

I’ve had a relaxing day. I worked on edits for my novel-in-progress. I walked three miles on the beach, and the walking surface was perfect–firm and soft with no seashells. I took my first swim in the Gulf since last November, and it was great.

I’m at home alone tonight, and that’s okay. I plan to watch the Tampa Bay Rays game with the Yankees, while I dine on tasty leftovers. I’ll enjoy a nice bottle of Sauvignon blanc, and who could ask for more?

Have a nice Friday night, friends.

Sexy blond boys; easy Friday for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you read last night’s post, then you know exactly what kind of young man get’s my motor running–tall, slender, fair-skinned, with dark hair. But that’s just me, and I know some of you guys out there like your blond boys, so I’m giving you a pair of them this morning. Do you find them as appealing as I do?

By the time I got home last night, I was exhausted from dealing with my boat yesterday. I went to bed around eleven PM and didn’t get up this morning until around nine. But I’m feeling rested now, and ready to enjoy my Friday.

Check out Mr. Beanie to the left here. A Dickies product never looked so good, eh? He has such a wholesome, Midwestern look to him, doesn’t he?

I had a medical procedure performed on me Wednesday afternoon, and my doctor told me not to do any heavy lifting or strenuous exercise for three days afterward, so I am kind of limited as to what I can do today. I can’t go to the YMCA as I normally would on a Friday, so I’ll stay here on the island and take a three-mile walk on the beach after lunch. Maybe I’ll swim in the Gulf too.

I have no plans for my evening, but I have tasty leftovers from Wednesday for my dinner, and I may go for a swim at my timeshare down the street. It’s all good, and I have zero complaints. Have a nice Friday, everyone.

Beautiful Greyson Chance; late post from Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

You can call me an idiot if you wish, but I find pianist and singer Greyson Chance sexy as hell. That’s him in tonight’s photo posts. He has amazing talent, and he came out as gay last year. Good for you, Greyson. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Okay, I am posting late tonight. I spent the entire day taking care of my fishing camp boat. This morning, I drove 70 miles north of here to pick up my boat and trailer it from the Suzuki dealer. I hauled the boat up to the marina where I keep it, where a young man assisted me in getting the boat into the river. (He’s so cute.)

We took my trailer back to where I store it, and then I dropped him off at the marina. I pay him for his help, of course, but he’s worth every penny. Everything went as smoothly as can be. ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay, here’s another Greyson photo, this one also stimulating. Sorry, but I like skinny 20-year-olds with fair skin and dark hair. Greyson fits the bill. Greyson, will you pay me a visit in Florida? Please?

I’m home after spending this evening with my best friend, drinking a few beers and dining on Tex-Mex takeout. We had a nice time; it’s one of the last nights the weather is spring-like, before heat sets in for five months. We had many laughs and shared a lot of memories. What a great evening.

All right, my boat’s where it should be, and it’s running great. I did a lot of driving today, but now things are in place, and I enjoyed a pleasant evening. What more can a guy ask for? Have a nice Thursday night, friends.

And, good night, Greyson.

Another boy with an amazing butt; early bedtime for Martin tonight ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you enjoyed this morning’s photos, then I know you’ll like the one I’ve posted to the left here. He seems to be enjoying himself, doesn’t he? I could spend a week in the woods with him …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I spent a pleasant evening with one of my oldest friends. He’s a retired litigator like me, and we love trading stories about our courtroom triumphs. (We never discuss our defeats, of course.)

We dined on excellent Italian cuisine, and I save half mine for another dinner, probably for my Friday night, as I am dining out again tomorrow night.

It’s a beautiful night, here on the island, one of the last cool ones we’ll have until October. I’m deep in edits on my new novel, and also planning my three-week hiking trip in Montana and Wyoming. It begins in mid-June.

Have a nice Wednesday night, friends.

Boys with amazing butts; very quiet morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site, then you know I am a huge fan of the male rear end. What’s more sexy than a smooth, round and firm pair of butt cheeks? Answer: nothing. I mean, look at Mr. Arms Behind My Head to the left here. Who could resist squeezing his buns? Not me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Early this morning, around 2:30, I woke up and knew I would not go back to sleep anytime soon. So, I poured myself a glass of wine and read a book in bed until I got sleepy again, maybe an hour later. This happens to me at least once a week, and I have learned to live with it. ๐Ÿ™

Anyway, I got out of bed around nine AM today, and busied myself with edits on my novel-in-progress. I’m getting very close to submission quality, but not quite yet. More polishing needs done.

Most Wednesdays, I visit the YMCA for my usual workout and lap-swimming session, but this afternoon I have an appointment about a 45-minute drive from here, so no YMCA for me today. It’s okay, I’ll get some exercise when I return home, probably walking three miles on the beach if the weather permits.

By the way, would you like to take a swim with the young man to the left here? Maybe the two of you could build a sand castle on the shore afterward. Or, you could do something else. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, I don’t have a lot more planned for my Wednesday. It’s very quiet here, now that our road an infrastructure activity is nearing an end. And I like that. Toight, I’m preparing a sauteed chicken dish for my dinner tonight, and I’ll enjoy a bottle of California white wine with it, so I’m good. Have a nice Wednesday, everyone.

Another guy, fast asleep; productive day for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

How’d you like to come upon Mr. Sexy to the left here, when he was snoozing. I’ll bet you’d stand there and watch him for a while. I know I would. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s been a good and productive day for me. I got a lot done in the writing department, and my visit with my doctor went well, although he’s not quite sure why I’ve been sleeping so much. My thyroid level came back high from my recent lab work, and he thinks I may have picked up a virus during my South and Central American cruise that is temporarily affecting my thyroid. I’ll have it tested again in three months. Otherwise, I am fine.

Not much in store for my Tuesday evening. I’ll dine on tasty leftovers, and watch the last part of my Netflix rental. Then I’ll climb into bed and read for a while. That’s all fine with me, as I don’t feel like any sort of excitement tonight.

Have a good Tuesday evening, friends.
