Phoenix86 saidWhy do straight men do it? Why do women do it? Lesbians? Gays? Anyone?
The question is not why "gay" men play. It's why do "people" play contact sports. I'm sure someone's here to answer that question for you. I also think the answer they give you, being a gay man, would be very similar to anyone else.
Remember, many of us don't think about life in the context of being gay. Gay isn't who we are. Its just some food for thought.
I agree. When I saw the question, I rolled my eyes. Like the only reason a gay guy would play was the hope it would some how break out into a Falcon video.
coolarmydude saidAbsolutely not. There may be some gay moments, per se, but the thrill of the sport is the physical contact and out-maneuvering the opponent.
I think the motivation as a adult for some gay men, is that as a kid they didn't enjoy or play sports because they didn't usually fit it. As a kid, I didn't "understand" why people play sports, I was skinny and uncoordinated and always put in left-field or warmed the bench. Not fun. Now, as an adult, I get it.
Oh, and a blatant plug;
