    So I notice that most of the profiles on here list several sports under "Sports I Like." Which I guess makes sense on a gay fitness site.

    My question to everyone is of the sports you list:

    1) How many are you a current, active participant in?
    2) How many are something you used to do but not so much anymore?
    3) How many are sports you've never done but you get turned on by guys who do?

    For example, I see lots of guys list Martial Arts and/or kickboxing. You can spot the enthusiasts because they talk about those sports in their profile and maybe even have a pic or two of them participating. But some guys list those sports and then nothing they talk about even suggests a strong interest. (Not that they're required to.)

    Just curious. Are your "sports I like" more about what you like to do or more about what you like to watch? (Or what you hope a partner might do?)

    This site was originally intended for those Gay athletes that PLAY sports,
    but seems to have morphed into one of muscle worship which has little to do with sports.


    Personally, I play competitive Volleyball and have done so for 15 years, before that Tennis and Karate most of my life.

    I have not done diving and swimming competitively but I enjoy watching it and admire those who do.

    "Sports I like" encompasses those I play or have played in and those I like to watch.

    I don't require a partner to play the sports I like, but hope he would at least understand and be ok with my passion for them.

    I'm an active participant in basketball, tennis, and softball, and flag football. I use to play baseball, and run track but not any more. I've never played soccer, lacrosse, and weirdly ultimate frisbee but am extremely turned on by guys who play.

    And when I have "sports I like," besides golf which I want to learn how to play, it generally means sports I like to play and/or watch.

    There are many sports I like, Gymnastics, Swimming, Wrestling, Running, etc...

    However the ones I have done are 3 years of gymnastics, after an injury I went into 6 years of All Star Cheer, worked out for a few years, and then when I started college we had a wrestling team... I was on the cheerleading team, the coach approached me cause he needed someone in my weight class, I did it for 2 seasons and loved it, but I had to leave this past semester b/c of nursing

    I don't play on any teams right now because I can't do intramurals anymore since I graduated, but I like to play a lot of sports for fun still. I still play racquetball, sand volleyball, golf, and ultimate frisbee. I like to throw around a football or baseball and occasionally play a game but don't too often. I run a few times a week and sometimes swim and every once in a while kayak when I can get my hands on one. Oh and I also love water skiing and wakeboarding but need to get a lot better (especially at wakeboarding because the most I can do is get up on my first try, then fall a minutes or two after)

    I like watching football and baseball mainly, but basketball sometimes too. Skiing and snowboarding are on there because I really want to, but the ski trips with my friends never work out :'( so someone on here needs to take me and teach me!!

    Muscle worship IS a sport.

    Good question sollasollewmn. I feel like a fish out of water when I'm on land, so I'd say I definately participate in the "Sports I Like" of swimming (& triathlon). This year, more marathon swimming. I'll be jumping in the Husdon in two weeks, May 28th! Can't wait! And will end the season with a 28km (17.5miler) from NJ to Manhattan Oct. 1st. THRILLED to be in that one.... and am enjoying the "wee bit of pratice" that is going on now for that biggy.
    I think its "attractive" when any guy is active in whatever his favorite sport is.
