Before we all hide for the winter, just a word of thanks to our sponsors this year.

Firstly to Rival who came in at very short notice and provided 100 pairs of great swimwear.  Many thanks to you for your efforts.  We can't speak highly enough of them and encourage everyone to spread the word about Rival and Running Bare.

And secondly, to Google and Mardi Gras who provided grant sponsorship, which allowed us to get the great lights and sound installation for the truck.  With better weather next year, we'll remove the tarp and see what they can really do.  We are a really proud recipient of their Community Parade Grants and would encourage anyone involved ...
Last week the Queensland Parliament at last removed gay panic defence from the statute books of Queensland. No longer will men be able to claim that they killed someone in panic because of an unwanted sexual advance to them. There have been two cases in Queensland where that type of defence was raised- and in both cases those charged were convicted of manslaughter, not murder. Both cases came

AussieBum have long been at the forefront of technology and innovation for their underwear. Now they have just launched a promotion that is leading the way in innovation but with age old references. Golden fabrics were the exclusive domain of the rich and powerful centuries ago. Now you can have some 24 Carat support for your “boys” in the form of a very very limited edition, custom made pair of underpants. This kind of special treatment does come at a price but with only 5 pairs being made it’s a nicely exclusive club.

One pair has already been purchased by a long time fan of the AussieBum brand, at the

There are some days it is better than others to wake up in the morning, and today was one of those magic days. Facebook told me that today was the fourth anniversary when I and six other ordinary citizens had defeated a proposal by then Attorney-General Bleijie to criminalise gays, lesbians and singles from becoming parents through surrogacy. On the very same day, four years later, my husband

How was everyone’s weekend?

Mine was pretty good, yesterday (Sunday) was a bit of a right off with the F1 in Melbourne on and everyone around my place for a BBQ.  Nothing naughty to report unfortunately.

But, since this is a gay speedo/porn blog I can’t just leave you guys hanging like that.  This morning I have jerked off two already to this photo below.  Holy batman these guys look fantastic in their white speedos.  I’m not sure how either of them are preventing their cocks from being at full mast because I can’t even look at this pic without getting hard.

Does anyone else like this photo?  As a side note, this is tomorrow ‘Speedo Photo of the Day‘ – a rather worthy one I think too.

I am delighted that Feedspot has selected my blog as one of the Top 60 LGBT Blogs on the web. In the words of Anuj Agarwhal, the founder of Feedspot:

English is a very difficult language, even for native English speakers. There are so many things that are only correct because that is how they are and there is not a rule to guide you and even if there is, it still may not apply, such as the letter 'i' before 'e' unless preceded by a 'c'. It almost doesn't apply more often than it does.

Take the above sentence and the phrase so many things that are only correct because that is how they are... I had to check if 'so many things' was any sort of collective noun and I should use 'is' instead of 'are' but even if that small part was a collective noun, I would still type what sounded correct to my ears.

Here is another from a blog post. I seem to spend a lot of time changing sentences. I expect many of you get them right the first time.

I think they were all Asian students lining the walkway to the QV shopping centre. ...

After our first shoot months ago with Jorge nude on the beach covered in sand, he and I discussed doing another shoot at some stage. Jorge was keen for a studio shoot and he may have made the mistake of saying something along the lines of “the messier the better.” More fool him.

This morning after getting a coffee, Jorge and I, along with a friend Tim who came along to film behind the scenes, arrived at the studio where I proceeded to paint Jorge with white clay. Once we had him painted and the clay dried it became very apparent just how like a classical sculpture he is. Obviously he has more muscle than the Statue of David and is better proportioned in other ways as well, but with


The International Space Mission is returning to Earth following an exploratory visit to Mars. Whilst en route Mission members test samples taken from the red plant and are thrilled when they revive an intriguing life form. Their joy soon turns to horror when this life form starts to grow and threaten them.

'Life' has visually pleasing aspects. The actors float about in zero gravity delivering their lines vertically, horizontally and even at times while upside down. The general mood of interstellar flight is well captured. But I did start to avert my eyes when the horror ...
