Elliott Gould and Martin Short have joined John Mulaney’s comedy pilot loosely based on the comedian’s life. Gould will play the gay neighbor. While I’m excited to have a gay elder on television, this production is from Lorne Michaels of Saturday Night Live, so I don’t have high hopes for how they’ll handle it.

Masturbation is good for you. It reduces the risk of cancer, helps with erections generally, ups your immunity, and generally helps your mood. Now if you need me, I’ll just be over here in the corner, being healthy.

How to break the ice with Mean Gays. Personally, it sounds like a lot of work to talk to people I probably won’t like.
Kevin Connolly has joined Friends With Better Lives, starring opposite James Van Der Beek as a fellow gynecologist. I’ve always had the weirdest crush on Connolly, even though he’s not one of my normal types.

Disney has unveiled the first image of their Shanghai resort, promising it to be uniquely Disney, but also uniquely Chinese. I’ve been to China but never made it to Shanghai. I always wanted to visit the modern, towering city.
The National Organization for Marriage’s Jennifer Morse will not be apologizing for exploiting the death of Tyler Clementi to advocate against gay rights. “”The media and activists groups are mischaracterizing my remarks, in which I urged students to befriend gay students, and also urged them all to adhere to the traditional standards of sexual morality. I believe that engaging in uncommitted sex hurts people of both genders and all sexual orientations. I would be happy to meet with Tyler Clementi’s mom and dad to try to move forward and go beyond the highly charged rhetoric that doesn’t help anyone. I don’t think the Clementis know me or what I believe or think or said.”

Joe Dallesandro was a model and actor popularized by Andy Warhol. The images of him in this post by Buzzfeed are NSFW, but are hauntingly beautiful.
Let’s be honest for a minute. Studies show that 50% of gay men are barebacking these days. It’s a fact. So what’s going on? Buzzfeed’s Kyle Bella talks about why he does it despite knowing better, the anxiety it causes him when he goes to get tested, and the fact that he knows he’ll do it again. So why can’t gay men talk about it without finger pointing and name calling? Says Bella: “Why is not an easy question, but it’s the only way we’re going to really feel comfortable talking about our desires. And if, as studies are starting to show, roughly half of all gay men bareback at some point, is it really that reckless? Are men who engage in barebacking sex really self-destructive, uneducated, or unfamiliar with the risk? I don’t think so, but the shame that stands between us and a candid conversation about bareback sex is perhaps as dangerous as the virus itself. I’ll probably bareback again, though I don’t know when or with whom. It is against my better judgment to take this risk, when the virus, even if I don’t have it personally, has invaded my vision of the world. But my desire doesn’t necessarily operate logically.”
I just want to say thank you Kyle, for asking the question honestly. Trying to start a dialog doesn’t’ mean you deserve the comments you got.
