    Hi there all,

    I was just wondering if, aside from loving a particular contact sport, whether there are sexual motives or any other motivations for gay men to play rugby.

    Thanks!

    As a gay man, everything I do is gearing towards any kind of physical contact with another man so I can get a sexual charge. A hand shake makes me leak precum.

    Absolutely not. There may be some gay moments, per se, but the thrill of the sport is the physical contact and out-maneuvering the opponent.

    As you tell from my profile page,
    I love contact sports---I'v always been a tough guy and being the youngest male of 5boys you almost have to be tough to survive..lol
    Dad was the high school/college hometown football star, so you can only imagine the amount of testosterone living in that house..

    The moment sexual thoughts enter your mind during a rugby match is the moment you get flattened for not being focused on the game. There's really no room for distraction.

    The sexual trolls are always culled out after their first match. Many during their first intense practice.

    I played for a gay rugby team in Phoenix and loved it. It was my first time playing and I did it for the comraderie and the rush of pushing myself hard. The brotherhood is unlike anything I've ever experienced. Of course having hot rugby guys as mates is icing on the cake. :-D

    So one time at rugby practice...


    We had a new guy practice with us. He picked up the game and the rules very quickly. He was very attractive and built like a tank. And he was only 5'7"

    We were practicing in the heat of August, so we decided it was time for a water break. I was near the goal post heading towards the sideline at the center and the new guy was walking straight down the middle of the pitch towards the sideline. I could see his package was very large and thought he might have been wearing a cup. I thought about telling him that it's not necessary to wear a cup in rugby, but I decided not to tell him to spare both of us the embarassment.

    That Saturday, he played in his first game and he also scored. Rugby tradition holds that when a player scores for the first time with a team, he or she has to (zulu dance) strip naked and run around getting splashed with beer. He and about 3 other guys were zulu dancing after the match and I was standing directly behind him. He was hung like a mother fucking horse. I could see his schlong dangling down between his legs from behind him!!! We all felt sorry for the other guys that had to zulu dance alongside him.

    /No offense... first thing I thought of.

    Seriously:
    The interesting turn around to the OP is: If that was the case then why doesn't the straight community support more coed sports?

    i started Mixed Martial arts because I didn't want to get the shit beat out of me in a fight, or if i got gay bashed. Then I was fighting to prove that I wasn't some fairy, and then I was fighting for the adrenaline. I think the later is the biggest reason for everyone

    Why 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.

    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; icon_twisted.gif

    WOW! I can not believe how narrow-minded and how "one track" minded alot of people are when it comes to gay men and sports. Can't a guy simple play a sport because they enjoy it like everyone else without there being some alterior motive like sex or rather the hopes of sex happening?

    I started playing rugby in 2007 because it was a sport I had never played before and it was basically different for me. Also because a few friends figured I would be good at it considering my size and frame. It required me to dig deep and ask myself some questions. When I first started I got the wind knocked right out of me, was knocked out for a few minutes, got cleeted on various parts of my body and even got into somewhat of an open field fight because the other team pulled a "low blow" move on my knee. I'm still playing though.

    Nothing sexual there as you can see. It's simply pure, straight up enjoyment, an adreneline rush and overall just fun. The excitement of winning and putting forth all you have to win and even if you don't win as a team you can still win individually simple because you tried and made the effort. That's what playing sports is all about. Being a contact sport it makes you rely on others and you build a bond with your team. You learn more about yourself and you push yourself forward to achieve a goal. Go big or go home. It's no different then any other sport out there really. You've your "gay moments" or as I like to call them "brow risers" like when someone gives you a "good game" or a manly hug but that doesn't really mean anything.

    I wish some of you here would get your minds out of the gutter and stop taking simple things and ruining it by trying to turn it into something sexual and deviant. If you play sports for the sole purpose of "getting lucky" then you shouldn't be playing sports just like if you go to the gym to soley workout just so you can get can laid. That's wasteful and by far one of the most childish, selfish and above all stupidiest reasons ever. That comment goes out especially to those of you who look like you've never even played a sport in your lives.

    Get mad.

    If I wanted to do something for sexual motives, I do something that would be considered sexual....like have sex. I wouldn't go play a painful sport where you have lots of cuts, bruises and burn marks when you walk off the pitch. Much better ways to get a sexual thrill if you ask me.

    Rugby is like any other sport. You play for fun, team camaraderie, competition, personal challenge. Every one has their own reason. But if I wanted to see a zulu or another rugby tradition, I think I'd simply go watch a game and not actually play it. A lot less painful.

    Scally said why do people have not pics and write crap to get noticed


    Your guess is as good as mine...



    Maybe they have real accounts but these are the accounts they use to ask stupid/controversial questions without fear of defaming the character of their actual account.

    Good answer! I think anyone who's actually played a sport will know this, gay or not.

    This whole imagining sports as highly sexual environments, is basically wishful thinking from people who's not really a part of that world.
