"Brash, bawdy and very filthy, this cabaret-infused offering at Leicester Square Theatre is the most promising of this year's crop of 'adult pantos'. It features characters with names such as Sofonda Cox and Queen RUnt, places such as the Streaky Crack, and legends such as that of the 'bell-end'. You get the gist." - CRITICS CHOICE, Scoutlondon

He is an aboriginal guy, 47, reasonably good-looking with dark hair, brown eyes and honey coloured skin. I am the most attracted to such darker-skinned men, whether aboriginal, Indian or Middle Eastern. He has a flawless, slim body; 5'-11".
Doug was good to his jeans. In fact, I was hard throughout much of our date.
He's intelligent and is capable of a lively, funny conversation as we exchanged stories about some of our more unfortunate encounters. Interested in a super-masculine, early 30s firefighter who wanted to wear a diaper during a hot encounter? (Doug's story) How about a mid-30s guy who wanted to have sex in the inner-city bus station washroom and nowhere else? (My story: I said "no", as tempting an offer as it was...)
Three years ago, Doug returned to his blue-collar hometown after 25 years to look after his elderly parents. This year, I'd been told several times that this is a hard town to be gay in and Doug agreed, calling it a "backwater." He said that once he discloses he's HIV+, he usually never hears from the guy again. Doug said this never happened when he lived in Toronto or New York.
I repeated Sean's and Cubby's comments: I was at far greater risk having sex with any random guy who could have been lying about his HIV+ status or had never been tested. Sex with him would be "low risk" since he made the disclosure, had a non-detectable viral load and took every precaution needed.
I told Doug that he seemed even more depressed than the last time we met. His new job as chief finanncial person at the only HIV/AIDS organization in town is an excellent one and his colleagues are great.
But he finds his job draining as he's in constant contact with people infected with HIV / AIDS. Sadly, the largest group of recently-infected people are homeless, uneducated, unemployable Aboriginal woman many of whom work in the sex trade to support their children. The hopelessness of their situation was grinding him own and he was presently in counselling to learn coping strategies.
Doug said: "All I want is a friend .... someone to go to the movies with, skiing or go to the gym a couple of times a month."
I can relate! Since leaving my old neighbourhood, I have no one nearby to do such things with either. I used to do many of those things with my children but they are rapidly leaving the nest and have jobs and friends of their own. In fact, I have very few friends, period. Please read Dr. Spo's recent post on this.
I told Doug that I wanted to be friends too and said that we would plan something in a week or two. My major concern is that he will not be able to keep it "just friends" and will start to fall for me and want a LTR. And it's not his HIV+ which a concern to me.
But I'm thinking that Doug and I might go to the gym together maybe two weeks from now and see how it goes. I'm really not sure.
ps: while writing this post, I received this POF message from him: "Looking forward to seeing you and maybe sucking your cock and rimming that sweet ass of yours...." Hmmm....
