Bromosexual?

1
A Faithful Reader sent me an article about the new Andrew Christian underwear ad which, while trying to sell undies, makes a derogatory statement about straight guys who enjoy jerking off with their buds; basically intimating they will turn mean and nasty if you try to get them to do anything "too gay," or accuse them of being gay.

The Urban Dictionary labels straight guys who enjoy being naked, and mutual masturbation, with their buds "Bromosexuals." Isn't it weird how we always seem to have to place labels on people. It's bullshit. You straight dudes out there, perhaps you can enlighten us - does the label bother you?

  Personally, I think they're just men. They get horny, want to get their rocks off, and it shouldn't matter that they've kicked back with a buddy or two for some cock stroking. Jacking off is a common practice among men. There's no reason to hide that you do it or enjoy it. So why not jack off together? Why not play with one another's cocks? It's a way to spend an enjoyable, shared activity.

We 'older' guys in excellent health, who find that our ladies are no longer interested, and who aren't ramrod-straight, don't want labels. We just wanna get off with some company! Actually, I would conclude a 'Bromosexual' is a person who takes antacids before sex.

At the bottom of your today's update I read "Labels: buddy jackoff, masturbation, masturbation month, mutual jack-off, mutual masturbation, str8".
Tags or labels are nothing else or more than short cuts.
I am teasing you once more, my poor dear friend, but sorry, you know that I cannot refrain from it and how much I like to tease you.
Don't worry, I understand and I approve what you want to say.
We must not be imprisoned into categories, and the short cuts can cut all that they want except our liberties and our personalities.
They have to gather without separating.
We are not clones and, grouped together or not, each of us is different, and it is very well like that.
What is such a pain, it is to have to learn new words at every opportunity.
Bisous, my dear friend.

Postscript: Do you think that "Bromosexual" means "who has a brominated sexuality"?
A bromide (potassium bromide) was used to calm or inhibit the sexual desire of soldiers living in the crowding or in operation. It is its properties of endocrine disruptor (anti-androgens) that were involved.
One more burst of bisous for you.

I'm straight but this "bromoseltzersex" label (or whatever it is) is stupid and accomplishes nothing positive. I haven't whacked off with another guy since I was a teenager, but I won't say I'd never do it again. Artificial categories are B.S.

WHY! WHY! WHY! do we keep putting labels on people? Let us just be what we are!

My head's on straight. My ego's intact. Gay is when you want a man in your bed when you go to sleep and there in the morning. I don't want that. Tell you what I'd like. A man in a similar situation as I am. We haven't had sex in years because of wife's health. My libido's still over the moon. I do have a close friend to whom I've said enough for him to know. He obviously doesn't feel the same way. I even mentioned it to my wife. She agreed I could have a jo buddy. Very nest morning she said she'd changed her mind. It would be tantamount to cheating, she said. So here I am, at an age when many men have stopped or slowed, and I'm still hard and ready 24/7.

RockHard-
Have you tried telling the wife that being asexual is "cheating" on you?(I know, I know, reason doesn't work! sigh)

Everybody wants to rule the world... and shoot a load with someone else watching. No worries. Tell 'em it's all good. - Uptonking from Wonderland Burlesque

Eddie, you're right, reason doesn't work. Reminding her what St. Paul wrote in I Corinthians 7:2-5 doesn't help either.

even if the human being needs to label everything, human nature has many shades, a fortiori sexuality, which draws from the deepest part of the human soul. I could say that there are as many shades as there are human beings.

@ Rock Hard - Buddy, I feel for you. Seriously, something has to give. A spouse cannot become completely apathetic toward sex and expect his/her partner to give it up as well. It's not only unfair, it's cruel.
I don't know where you live, but look around to see if there is a j/o group in your area. If it's feasible for you to join in - if you can escape by yourself for an hours or two, join the group and go. The group I attended (until it disbanded for lack of venue) was 90% married, str8 dudes.
In the interim, I sure as hell hope that she doesn't stop you from whacking off when you need to. You need to keep the package healthy!

whkattk said...

@ Eddie - You got that right. We don't want or need labels. We just want to enjoy what we enjoy.

whkattk said...

@ Anon - You're right, the label is artificial. And total BS.

whkattk said...

@ bob - Yep, the world is filled with WIFM people. But, that being said, we should be able to enjoy our sexual selves as we wish. First off, it's OUR cock and what we do with it - so long as we don't harm anyone else - should be our business, right?

Westernstock said...

Getting your rocks off with a buddy (or two) is really all that homosexuality is about, in my opinion. Nothing more. You do not really need to categorize or label.

@whkattk - "where is the harm?" is one of the key concepts Bering uses in his book "Perv: The Sexual Deviant in All of Us". A fun read, do recommend it!

IMHO, the ad was totally on point, which was to illustrate the sham of straight guys being attracted to other guys (str8 or gay), either pursuing that attraction or denying it, and then actively condemning the rest of us for not exhibiting the same kind of self-loathing behavior.

A bit 'heady' for an underwear ad, but a powerful merchandising tool aimed at getting quasi-straight guys in denial to be "okay" enough with themselves to buy "Gay" underwear. Does AC ship in a plain brown wrapper? ☺☺☺
