Short Story - My First Night As Sheik Omar’s Sex Slave

The first few years after I had moved to the big city, I usually spend some weeks of the summer in my native village. My parents were away on holiday, and they expected from me to look after their house. However, I didn’t consider this to be a punishment, because I could recover from my studies and from the many sexual adventures I indulged in in those days. An additional plus-point of this yearly stay in the countryside was that I could give Robert a helping hand. Robert was a friend of my parents and a few years older than me. He owned a farm at the other side of the village, which he had inherited from his grandparents.

Baantjer Not On The Big Screen The planned big screen version of the popular television series “Baantjer” has been canceled. One year ago Endemol and RTL announced that in the spring of 2007 they would finish the entire series with a one off motion picture. Producer Peter Römer declared that the movie had not been canceled because of financial reasons but that Endemol doubted whether a motion picture had anything new to add. It was also the success of series like “Gooische Vrouwen” and “Evelien” that made Endemol decide to stick to television.

Portfolio - Giovanni’s close-ups

At least once in his life every healthy queen has descended a staircase and, while moving his hands languidly around his face, proclaimed: “I'm ready for my close-up, Mister DeMille.” A lot less gentlemen will have dared to tell the Italian photographer Giovanni just as light-hearted that they’re ready for their close-up. This is because Giovanni is specialized, not in portraits of faces, but in pictures of a, just as important, but much more intimate part of the male physique.

Sex!... in the nineteenth century

The nineteenth century is also known as the Victorian age. After the British queen Victoria who didn’t like sex. Great Britain was a world dominating empire at that time. Though large empires are not necessarily sexually repressive (the Roman empire proves the opposite), Great Britain at the time most definitely was. It seemed the queen was not opposed to have sex with her husband though, as she gave birth to a whole series of children. There were also many whores roaming the streets of London as Judith Walkowitz notes in her historical studies of the British capital.

Gay & City - What's in a Blow Job?

The truth is, I was horny that weekend. I undressed every good-looking passerby on the street with my well-equipped mind’s eye. As the song goes, I was looking for fast love and I needed it fast. On Saturday morning I stopped by at Nick’s for a cup of coffee. While sipping my frothy cappuccino, I was gazing through the window, still keeping an eye on the eligible traffic. “There are many American tourists in town,” said Nick. “Well...” I scanned the street once more, “let’s go and GET some.”

Living Together - Five Years Of Gay Marriages

Two men or two women can get married in the Netherlands since April 2001. The law came into effect on the 1st of April 2001.

So the actual law from the 21st of December 2000 consisted of a revision of an existing one.

Letter from Brussels - Prostate Clinic

Dear Northern Neighbors,

We have to admit: Dutch gays can find bars, saunas, discos, clubs and porn cinemas in the most remote areas of Holland. We can’t claim that here in Belgium. A gay café in a godforsaken Flemish farmer’s community will not be found for a long time. In contrary, a part of the Belgian gays has to drive many kilometers in order to find a gay bar in hopes of finding a mate to relieve the calloused hands from masturbation duties.

Gerard Reve, Dutch Author And Gay Emancipation Pioneer, Dies At 82

On Saturday March 8, just after sunset, Dutch author Gerard Reve died at the age of 82. The last few years, he was hospitalized because dementia had obfuscated his once so sparkling mind. The man who could once conjure with words and language like no other, couldn’t utter more than: “Schrum..., brum...” This is tragic, because Reve was undoubtedly the most virtuoso stylist of contemporary Dutch literature. Love played a major part in his oeuvre, just as did death.
