it’s iMazing

Every now and then I do something really dumb. I know I’m blonde and it really shows from time to time. Yesterday I learnt a valuable lesson, which could have been a very expensive one. I left the headphones to my iPod in the pocket of my shorts and realised that said shorts had just finished being washed and dried… So now I have some very curly headphones but the amazing thing is that they still work perfectly! iMazing!

I want what I can’t have.

Not having an unlimited supply of wealth at times puts a few limits on one’s life, which isn’t always a bad thing. I’m sure with vast sums of money at my disposal I would have a massive collection of trivial stuff, especially of the shiny and fun variety. I saw these shorts on a certain male model (click the pic to see who) and decided they would make the perfect outfit for the Mardi Gras after party, yet beind dSquared I couldn’t afford them even if I could find them here in Sydney. So my mission to find small short short short red shorts began. When I get something particular in my head I can’t accept a poor substitute but unless one of my loyal readers happens to be one of the Caten twins who make up dSquared, I’m going to have to. I’ve found a pair of shorts in a vague approximation of the right style and I’m going to have to try and dye them red and have them shortened. Fingers crossed.

Chad’s Attitude

New photos of Chad White are always a blessing, and when I discover them on a Sunday morning, it’s almost like a little slice of my own religious affirmation.

This time Chad is working to make a black and gold sequinned hood look hot, and somehow still does it. I’d make him work a lot less hard and just have him nude of course, but that’s just me.

First rehearsal!

Here is the first pic from our rehearsal on thursday night. The pace has definitely been wound up from last year’s march with a more energetic routine, albeit with a similar flavour, we are lifesavers not dancers after all. I for one, am really pumped to be in the parade again and this year I’m not making the mistake of going home afterwards, I’m going to the party and skaking my groove thing all night.  Last year I went home and lay in bed so wound up I couldn’t sleep all night, instead I lay there still doing the routine over and over with Bonnie Tyler telling me she was still holding out for a hero.

Check the bruises on my left arm from silks on Tuesday night. I got a little tangled doing a trick. Oops. Some have said it makes me look tough. I disagree, I look like a $5 crack whore who’s pimp wasn’t satisfied.

For those still yet to join our float who are eligible, head over to Life Savers With Pride and register.

The beer fairy hurt me!

Last night we had our nude drinks at my friends house and by and large it was a raging success. There was four hours or so of really relaxed chat and good company and laughs which was great fun. Unfortunately FAR too much alcohol was consumed by a lot of us, me included which has made my day today very unproductive, and my pole dancing class this afternoon a particular challenge.

The guys at the party were all guys who have hung out on nude beaches with friends or alone definitely enjoy nudity. Unfortunately there was one or two guys that had strong urges that they were determined to act on and late in the night things did get out of hand, at which point I left. I think with less alcohol, and eliminating the guys that came with the intent of making it a sexual event, it would have calmly ended without incident. We are definitely having more!

Thursday bits ‘n’ pieces

It’s nearly ten o’clock on Thursday night and I’m about to go to bed so I can get some sleep before getting up for the gym at 5.30 in the morning. I’ve just got home from the first of our rehearsals for the Mardi Gras parade in a few weeks time. It’s looking like we’ll have about double the number of participants in our float of last year for this year’s float. There are even a few guys that read this blog in the float! Check out our float’s blog here.

Tomorrow night a friend is hosting a group of around 7 or 8 guys for drinks, nude. I posted that we wanted to do this a few weeks back asking whether we can do it without it becoming sexual and I think with the guys we’ve got coming, definitely. They are all guys that enjoy being nude for the enjoyment of the freedom, not for sex. I’ll let you know how it goes, but I won’t be posting photos!

Chi Chi says “Safe sex is hot sex”

It’s so good to see people in the porn industry speaking up about safe sex. I’m all for people making their own informed decisions about their own sexual practices but it has to be informed and I just don’t think all the 18-20 year olds just hitting the scene have got the message. They seem to think they’ll be ok to go to a gang bang and bottom for ten guys without condoms.

Chi Chi has made a public service announcement video for Safe Sex is Hot Sex.

Get out of town!

After watching the Scenic boys videos for a while now I’ve been thinking more and more of camping out in the wilds and getting back to nature. A friend asked me to go camping and canoing this weekend but I couldn’t make it sadly.

It’s literally been over 20 years since I’ve been camping and it’s time. I want to rough it properly, none of this “camping” in a cabin with hot and cold running water. I’d love to find somewhere off the beaten track, by a river or a lake somewhere. Any suggestions?

Train together, shower together

I’m not sure who these guys are training nude on the beach, and I don’t know who is making them do it, but I think it’s a sterling idea. As someone who has spent many many hours on the beach, being nude, no matter what you are doing, is the best option. You won’t get blisters on your feet from sand in your shoes, nor anywhere else! Of course the next logical step is to shower together.

Grand Central Freeze

I found this video and tried to post it earlier today but it glitched out the blog. How bizarre and cool would it be to come across over 200 people just standing frozen still, as if time had wrinkled, in the middle of Grand Central Station. Very cool!

We love team sports

The standard perception of old that gay men don’t like team sports is changing and why the hell wouldn’t it with team bonding hijinx like this? Team sports are what got me over my prudish shy ways.

I’d always been incredibly self-conscious growing up until I joined the surf club at the age of 23 and started rowing surf boats. There was no way to shower in your speedos after training without it attracting more attention than just getting brave and stripping off. I haven’t looked back since!

Random bits and pieces

What broke my heart today?
Hearing my 5 year old nephew has been in tears the last two days when my sister has dropped him off at school. He’s not enjoying it.

What made me laugh today?
Reading a quote from Calvin & Hobbes “It’s hard to believe in religion when some people aren’t incinerated by lightening.”

What I’m loving?
Trapeze class last night, silks class tonight and  really looking forward to  Mardi Gras rehearsals starting on Thursday night. Especially looking forward to seeing if there are any hotties in the parade.

Red, yellow and pink

The madness is about to begin again and it’s having a good effect. Last year lifesavers took part in the Mardi Gras parade for the first time and it’s set the example we hoped to set. Gay and Lesbian members are signing up in record numbers and here’s hoping they all join us in the parade.

Name your price

I’ve been doing the odd photo shoot for people’s online profile photos and a few days ago I was approached by someone wanting some shots done. I told him how much I charge, which just covers time really. Yesterday morning I had a response from him saying “I know your profile says that photos doesn’t mean sex but if I pay you extra would that be ok?”

I don’t think I’m a fantastic shag in the first place but for god’s sake I’m hardly going to be any good if the only reason I’m doing it is because someone is paying me and I don’t even find them attractive. Despite the fact that the guy clearly can’t comprehend what I’ve written I sent a message back saying I wouldn’t do his shots and I was quite offended. To which he responded that he didn’t mean it like that. How else was I supposed to take it?

Escorts, hookers, prostitutes, hustlers, what ever you call them, they provide a very necessary service, but I’m not one and couldn’t do it. I’ll stick to having sex with people I find attractive for free.
