1. Athens is fucking freezing! (-10 C) but it will warm up later in the week. It's feels even colder than back home because of the dampness. Luckily I brought warm winter clothes.
2. European men are absolutely gorgeous! Generally, they're very much hotter than the ones I see back home even in Toronto or DC. (This observation is based only the men in the Frankfurt airport and in Athens, men in the 18 - 55 age range. )
The reasons: A. Here; there is not the obesity problem of North America. All the men look fit and are far slimmer than back home. I've not seen a single chubby guy in his 20s.
B. They all wear really TIGHT jeans, super stylish and all embellished with design elements; be it the distressed or bleached look, metal accents, embroidered designs and the like. C: Every man wears fabulous European shoes. 'Nuff said. It makes an eenormous difference so matter what else a man is wearing.
3. Why didn't anyone tell me how stunning the German men are? Steely blue eyes, chiseled features, with an air of authority, they all looked like dom tops to me. The German men in uniform at Frankfurt airport security were so hot; all our female students (and me) were all a-tingle.
The German hottie security men did random, EXTREMELY thorough body searches which some of our group found upsetting but sadly, I wasn't picked. Damn!
4. In Athens, I switched on Grindr and instantly received many messages from Greek men; all handsome, dark, slim and in their 20s, some very young and all very, very persistent. In part, this flurry of interest of interest was because of "The Fresh Meat Syndrome."
There are some interesting differences when compared to similar exchanges back home. Firstly, they all sent face pics at a very early stage, unasked. Such openness!
There was no sexual explicitness at all, no quizzing on cock size or the inevitable "R U a top?" question. Refreshing! And they all wanted to meet for coffee, even the 20 year old dude. So European! Back home, 20-ish men NEVER meet me for coffee.
And they were all extremely persistent. I told them "not available" several times and they kept pushing for a meeting. Back home, if I tell a 20- something dude "no", he won't ask again.
In Athens, very bad economic times mean that 20ish men live at home and can never host. I suspect that their major sexual outlet involves trolling for sex with the countless men in hotels who come here as tourists.
Well, it's time to start banging on doors to make sure our 54 students are awake!
