    "There is only one thing that keeps gay men in shape: fear. Yes, every gay—at least those of the stereotypical abdominal-obsessed physique that populates Fire Island and Palm Springs—is brought about because gay men are afraid that they will be alone for the rest of their lives. If a gay man is not "serving body" while competing to find a trick or boyfriend in one of the more muscle-bound climates of gay culture, he will be sorely shut out. That is why gay men don't get fat, because if they don't have pecs, guns, and glutes, they're going home alone.

    Gay men, unlike their straight counterparts, don't have the luxury to stay in "fighting shape" just long enough to find a partner before letting their bodies fall to shit afterwords. No, gay men have to get buff, get married, and stay buff. Why? Because of three-ways, obviously. I'm going to let you in on a little secret: There are countless committed gay couples out there who like to either play on the side or invite guest stars into their beds. And you're not going to get any A-list guest stars if you're giving D-list torso with a four-star gut. Yes, gay men go to the gym to stay competitive, but since the man-eating marathon doesn't end after marriage, they just keep on competing and competing until death do they part."

    Terribly cynical and jaded, but I love it.

    I got to the part where it said "Yes, every gay...." and then my eyes rolled into the back of my head

    Is it even slightly possible that at least SOME gay guys stay in shape because they simply prefer looking, feeling and being healthy?

    I see no virtue in following the very worn path trod by 90 percent of the straight guys, i.e., letting yourself go by age 22.

    Why do they call them chasers. I mean, come on, how fast could they run?

    There's nothing wrong with sex as motivator. If it wasn't for sex, most people, str8s included, probably wouldn't even bother leaving the house.

    You guys are taking this too seriously.

    It's coming from Simon Doonan, the pin-thin CAL of Barney's New York...obviously his take on the ideal male bodytype is going to be a bit extreme.

    icon_neutral.gif Then why are all the clubs sponsoring "bear and cub" nights every week? It's not as if they're overrun with perfect bodies in the first place. I think the forces of marketing see which way the ball is rolling.

    Earlier this year, I had to flake out on an invitation to the "bear underwear party." The view from the door was enough to turn you straight.

    My body won't let me get fat, I just burn up everything I eat lol. But I also can't seem to put on weight either, does my being in Limbo mean I'll die alone cuz I'm too small? icon_sad.gif

    There needs to be a constant supply of third wheels if this three way scenario is going to work!
