Unlike most felines, tigers love to swim. Being photographed swimming, however, is a different story, apparently. My, Mr. Tiger, what big fangs you have!

BTW, what is up with the crotchal area of that Superman doll? Are they anatomically correct now or something?

straight-guys golddiggers with the collective IQ of a beanpole, but his rabbits are dying off. There's a sperm count and/or Viagra joke in there somewhere, but I'll leave it to you to unpack it yourselves.

So Vince wanted to interview some of his blogging pals, and I volunteered. Below are my answers to his questions.
1. There is a storage problem in the world and something has to go. Either all books will be destroyed and lost forever or all porn will face the same fate. It's your call. Which wins out, intellect or lust?
I thought this would be a really tough question, but, after thinking about it for a second, it turned out it wasn't: intellect/bibliophilia wins. I could live without porn, or at least live without it until a month or two later when there would be a billion movies and magazines out (porn abhors a vacuum, you know). But I already worry about a new Dark Age in which most books and knowledge are lost (that's why I'm so insane that I have two, three, sixteen, or over twenty copies of the same book), so of course I'd go with the books.
2. Do you have a secret crush on any of your blogging buddies? You don't have to reveal names, but I'd encourage it. I like the drama.
Good Lord, who don't I have a crush on! Let's see...Well, of course I'm madly in semi-quasi-sort of incestuous love with Scott, but that's hardly a secret. There's you, Vince, of course (if I ever get to Chicago, I am totally crashing on your couch). GayProf, though I think we're too much alike to ever have a relationship (our combined gravitas would collapse into a black hole). However, a wild, torrid affair followed by years of friendship could work. Eric and I would also not work as a relationship, since our combined neuroticism would probably rip a tear in the spacetime continuum, but also because I don't know enough languages to keep him satisfied. Another torrid affair it is, then! Bigmouth and Gunn and Note and GothamWhore and Hubbard intrigue me because I know so little about them, even what they look like. Rich is brilliantly funny, which is, of course, sexy. And his kitties are the most adorable things ever! Bigg because I fantasize about what the name refers to. Homer is just plain humpy. Momo is fascinating; I love a man with lots of stories to tell. Pete's dirty, almost scary sometimes, and that's exciting. I've long been in total lust with the vlogtastic Tony Hayden, and in love with his dog. And, though I know Scott will go totally ballistic, I think Joe is beary, beary fine.
In reality, though, every proprietor of a blog listed in the sidebar links, I have an intellectual crush on, have a [whatever the equivalent of a mancrush or girlcrush is for a gay man who adores a straight woman], or just think is plain nifty and would love to get to know better. Really, I love you all! (And don't be mad at me if you don't see your name listed! This question's taking long enough already and I'm sure I'm forgetting people.)
3. Are all the horrible things I've heard about New Jersey true? If they are, I really need to book a flight out there!
When people think about New Jersey, they think about North Jersey, even really just Northeastern Jersey, and maybe Princeton. Much of Northeastern Jersey is not-so-nice, with its chemical plants, waste incinerators, and such, and such lovely towns as Newark and Jersey City. But most of the state, including much of "Sopranos New Jersey" is really rather typical suburbs and not that scary at all.
4. Your readers know a lot about you (assuming they pay attention). One thing I have no clue about is your taste in music. What does everyone's favorite nerd like to listen to?
I'm honestly not a big music buff. I also don't listen to music the way most people do. I own I think three CDs, have no mp3 players, and have never downloaded music in my life. I occasionally watch a music video if I'm flipping through the channels and MTV or VH1 or Logo (which has a music hour) are actually playing a video at that moment. I do flip through the non-video music channels that I get through Comcast Digital Cable frequently, but mostly I get in the car and flip around until I find something I like the sounds of. I don't have favorite genres or anything; I'm just eclectic and listen to whatever tickles my cochlear.
5. Speaking of nerds, what is the difference between a nerd and dork? In your own words, please. As a nerd, I know you are itching to pull out your dictionary.
The semantic, cultural, and social distinctions between "nerd," "geek," and "dork" are complex and controversial. (Not especially surprising when one thinks about the people to whom these terms are applied, eh?) I've talked about the issue before. But, succinctly, I believe "nerd" and "geek" are grossly synonymous, with just a few connotative shades separating them. Both apply, I believe, to people of above average intelligence who have a high level of interest in at least one, or usually several, subjects that society or specific peer groups deem non-mainstream, at least above a certain level, such as science fiction/fantasy, computers, books, chemistry, anime, band, etc.
"Nerds," in my opinion, are generally humanistic, in that their interests are mostly literary and pop cultural; "geeks" are more technically and scientifically minded. Both tend to be awkward socially, at least at some point in their lives, and often aggregate into myriads of subcultures, such as Trekkers, anime fans, robotic competitioners, etc. Again, though, many participate in more than one of these subcultures, and the levels of their participation vary greatly. Because there is much crossover and bleed-through of the "nerd" and "geek" groups, any rigid classification scheme is virtually impossible, but I believe the scheme I've outlined is broadly correct.
"Dork" is, to me, more just a general put-down than an identifiable group label. Though it is often leveled at nerds and geeks, it is really just a term of scorn or derision used against any less-than-popular or fringe individual, usually in childhood and adolescence when those distinctions matter most. Basically, anyone you don't like or is in some way Other is a dork.
So, there are my answers, Vince! Hope I answered them to your satisfaction and provided a more in-depth peek into my inexplicable psyche. Thank you for the great questions!

Actually, I think it was rather educational. I now feel I have a better understanding of the labia (both minor and major) and have discovered that most straight gals, even the "professionals," really don't have very good blowjob technique. (Seriously, most of those girls need to get their fuck-me pumps to stepping and run to their gay porn brethren right quick and learn how to suck a damn cock!) Also, I don't know why, but pubic hair on women totally skeeves me out in a way men's it totally doesn't. I think it's the thought of all those "secretions" in all that brambley hair. But, at the same time, a fully shaved vulva can be kinda skeevy, too, with all the stubble and stuff. You definitely have to find a good waxer or razor, women, or else it looks like you have dermatological or venereal issues. Another thing that skeeves me out when women are involved, but doesn't when it's men, is money shots. There's just something about a man coming on a woman that makes my skin crawl; it's just gross.
Anyway, like I said, I survived the experience. I don't think I'm going to be making a very frequent habit of buy and watching straight porn, but I'm no longer frozen in terror by the prospect.

You are The Hermit
Prudence, Caution, Deliberation.
The Hermit points to all things hidden, such as knowledge and inspiration,hidden enemies. The illumination is from within, and retirement from participation in current events.
The Hermit is a card of introspection, analysis and, well, virginity. You do not desire to socialize; the card indicates, instead, a desire for peace and solitude. You prefer to take the time to think, organize, ruminate, take stock. There may be feelings of frustration and discontent but these feelings eventually lead to enlightenment, illumination, clarity.
The Hermit represents a wise, inspirational person, friend, teacher, therapist. This a person who can shine a light on things that were previously mysterious and confusing.

Anyway, is it just me, or does this ad that's on Gawker all the time make it look like Buck Angel is the Crunch spokesmodel?

I also feel like a "liberal elitist" schmuck by linking to and semi-agreeing with the thoughts behind it, but then I feel like I'm just responding that way due to very effective right-wing propaganda programming over the past decade. And then I remember I'm a neurotic basket-case and shut up.

I'm ambivalent about the purchase anyway, though. It's my first and only straight porn purchase, a cheap compilation video (link NSFW) featuring that grody straight porn star that I have an irrational attraction to. I was serious when I said I'd endure yeasty vaginas for him; he's fug, but he cranks my chain.
Anyway, I was just curious as to what purveyors of pornography you guys prefer. And even if you shun the online smut emporia in favor of Ye Olde Friendly Neighborhood Porn Shoppe, still feel free to respond. I'm curious, and one never knows where one will find oneself in need of a local XXX establishment.
