    here's a random question,
    what do you think about websites such as outpersonals or other gay websites where the majority of the pictures, if the ONLY picture at all is of the person's dick. I mean, no offense but i really have to laugh when someone sends me this in an email with the headline " let's do coffee" Why would one expect something to come out of this? Like, "OH , now that i've seen you dick, I'm coming over!" it just seems so ridiculous to be. I'm not into hookups because i don't see how you can be sexually compatible and comfortable/safe with someone you've never met. I think the large reason the male gay community has attachment issues is because of the rampant hookup rates suggested on some other sites. Then again, if people are posting these pictues, and other guys are responding, there has to be a reason why. My question is................
    WHY? and also, why do you put up a dick picture without a face?

    food for thought.......some people might have a darth vader helmet on or something

    I wonder the same thing. Just like on here when people you don't even know unlock their private pictures.. like you even asked to see them? I normally just black then delete them.

    Im not a big fan of them just because of that reason. I mean you may be able to find someone worthwhile to talk to or date or whatever, but its those guys that tend to not read your profile about having a face pic first before emailing you or otherwise youre gonna delete them.

    I actually laugh at them for the most part because its like what you just said...you've got all this dick in your face with their picture and a topic saying "hows the weather?". I'm like...do you really greet people like this in the street??? Must be some sort of greeting ritual that I dont know about or something...

    Haha. But I dont know why some guys do it...I guess theyve had luck in the past with showing their goods and therefore feel its the best way to get someone to look at them. In other cases, some guys dont have their face pics up because of self esteem issues...so...

    ...meh...

    I agree, I think its sort of disturbing actaully. I dont have any problems with sexuality, but blatant sexuality like that is by no means a turn on for me.

    years ago when i first started lookin for gay sites to talk to people all i found was site after site of hook-up minded guys. pics we're all basically standardized except a few that went above and beyond and got ... well i guess creative is word... i followed suit and took some skanky pics. through those sites, i've met, 1 or 2 cool people i actually talk to. and not hook up with. i delete 99% of emails received on a site like that and i've gotten rid of anything that would be inappropriate on here.

    RJ has filled a void where all those other sites lack. somehow the majority of the hook-up focused are weeded out here. i know that had i found this site before any of the others i wouldn't have gone to anywhere else really. i only know of one site that's a bit of a crossover between the 2 styles, and it's just poorly made.

    does anyone know of an actual just straight-up online gay community like this one? but without the emphasis on fitness? i'm sure it could be wildly popular as long as it weeds out the sex fiends... and doesn't go the emo, self-appreciative, sexually driven, myspace wannabe way of Dlist.

    I've noticed several of the sites and the pics you talk about. I think it depends how they approach their advertising in many cases. Sure on RJ, we get ads, but you can tell they are all very tasteful and not intrusive.

    On some of the sites, I was at first surprised, then just felt dirty going there. I guess it depends how you want to spend your time.

    Oh common, it is perfectly NATURAL to walk up to someone on the street with your junk hanging out and ask if they like opera icon_razz.gif .

    Yea, this was actually the first gay community site that I have been a member of. I looked at other ones after signing up here, but rampent pics of guys dongs all over each page kinda tell me that it is more a hookup site then anything.

    I like how people on here actually TALK to one another instead of going straight for the sex...most of the time at least lol. icon_twisted.gif

    When ever I met someone in real life who's online picture was a penis, I discovered why they didn't have a face pic.

    That penis is the best god damn looking part on their body. Oh, it may be just a generic penis, but it is attached to the love child of Jabba the Hut and the Elephant man. You have to show your best side. For some people their best side is a penis that looks kinda funny.

    ZDrew is the exception. It really does smile and can do all sorts of tricks.

    Which begs the question, why would you even agree to meet someone without having seen a face pic?

    I was 18, in a small town, naive, and horny. But now that I am 27, in a small city, naive, and horny I would never do such a thing.

    Yes, and here's the dirty little secret no one likes to admit:

    Most penises look remarkably similar.

    Why does anyone think that HIS particular member is so--er--memorable?

    Because it's probably not their dick. They should get their dicks verified! icon_cool.gif
