It’s great news and exciting news!

You probably noticed that it has been a little quiet on the urbangay website recently. This is because I was really busy with two great projects – and I’m excited to let you know more about them today – and more will be revealed over the next few weeks! Although there was more interaction as the curators for the @urbangay twitter account took over last month, now it is all back to me… so I’m looking forward to hearing from you! And here are the details of the exciting things that are happening in the world of urbangay: 1. The […]

Three reasons to get active for every gay man

A guest post by Paul, who is the curator for the @urbangay twitter this week, follow him, interact and talk to him on twitter until Sunday! This week I’m taking over the @urbangay twitter account for a week. My interest is mainly in being healthy and active, and I think it is something really important. Not just because of the obvious and well-known health reasons (and making for better sex!). But there are three more reasons why it is especially important for gay men. Here they are: 1) It’s great to make you feel good Engaging in sports and eating […]

Meet the @urbangay Twitter Curators for October!

In October, the @urbangay twitter account will be curated by these four different guys. These guys will take over the twitter account, and tweet and interact with all the followers. Why? Because the urbangay community is a diverse community of different guys, different backgrounds – and where we can all tell our story and learn from each other. If you’d like to become a curator in future, please get in touch here! week 1: 1-7.10: Paul: HealthyGay I’m a health fanatic and love all things related to nutrition, sport and keeping fit. I hate the gym but love the outdoors. […]

Calling all social media urbangay storytellers, activists and YOU…

I’m really proud that guys from all different backgrounds come together with the urbangay workshops and seminars. Some of the amazing people have already contributed guestposts to this blog, and many more will follow in the next few months. But I really want to do more to celebrate our community and the ideas from urbangay. Therefore, to celebrate this diversity and to make the different voices heard, during October, I’ll be trying something new with urbangay  – think of it as a social media experiment: If you are reading this… you could be part of it! In October, I will […]

Why I have more sex after deleting hook-up apps

Guest post by Rob J. Let me get this out first: I’m Rob… and I’m part of the Happy, Healthier and More Active “beta team”. This means I got to test drive the 30 day program starting in September on urbangay.org. Today I wanted to give you the low down on one one of the days that I think had the most surprising effect. This day was the no hook-up apps day. I’m not giving too much away, but actually it was more than a day: the program asks you to delete all the hook up stuff for one week. […]

Why do gay men put up with so much mediocre sex?

A guest post by Daniel As gay men some of us have lots of sex. And in many places. At least if we want to: we can pick up a guy on the way to work on the train, have sex with guys during our lunch break, at the gym showers in the afternoon and afterwards we can have a threesome with the hot couple from Grindr. Sex is what we are, our favourite hobby and plenty of sex is what we have. I’m one of these guys who used to have lots of sex. I live in London, so […]

I went to a Gay Sex Workshop

A guest post by Andreas I came across the ad for the sex workshop on one of the online dating sites. Interested in what it was, I clicked the ad to find out more. Looking through the website of the workshop I found a few weekend classes being held in my city, one of which starting in two weeks. Without much thinking, I decided to give it a try. My sex life for the last few months had been pretty dull. I had only a handful of online dates, and nothing ever was a real connection. Even the sex was […]

Be Proud, Not Pushy: A Guide To Pride Etiquette

A guest post by Kitty Stryker Editor of “Ask: Building Consent Culture” & Porn’s Riot Grrl I’ve been going around the country talking about consent culture for years now, often in alternative communities – BDSM, polyamory, Burning Man, swingers, queer folks, etc. It’s a topic I care deeply about, but I’ve come to realize how often the conversation stalls when it comes to consent outside of the bedroom – the consent of negotiating daily interactions vs sexy fun times. As this is Pride month, I began to flash back to the various ways I had come to accept as normal […]
