Gay men chatting and dating website is mley cyrus and nick jonas dating
Beforehand, I researched the charity and read the testimony of a young man who had met someone he had been chatting to on an internet dating site.
It was the first contact he had had with other gay men.
Sex education in schools is, at best, perfunctory, and for gay kids it’s largely non-existent.
For most young gay men, sex education is something that is acquired through exposure to sex itself, via porn, and later with partners who are often more experienced than they are.
It allowed men to identify and meet other men wherever they were, and therefore, implicitly at least, it promoted sex-on-the-go for which there is considerable demand.
Personally, the Mc Donald’s Drive-Thru approach to dating has never been my thing.
Whilst sex should be fun and experimentation should be promoted in order that we can all have fulfilling and liberated sexual lives, simply using each other as receptacles for penises totally negates the emotional and psychological aspects of healthy sexuality.
They may also be uneducated in regards to gay sex, isolated and emotionally vulnerable, with the result being that they look for validation in the arms of strangers.
The problem is that by doing so, these young men are making themselves incredibly vulnerable to exploitation, sexual abuse and even rape.
More pertinently, the most vulnerable individuals on these sites, the young, inexperienced men who really need positive sexual role-models are being taught that in order to receive the attention and intimacy they crave, they must allow themselves to be used as sex objects.
Unfortunately, many of these young men do just that, and acquire for themselves a sex education which dictates that submission, relinquishment of power and subserviently allowing yourself to be used sexually are the modes by which you can most expediently access affection, however fleeting and ephemeral it may be.
On Monday, I was one of 30 or so men to take part in the filming of an advert for Survivors UK, a lottery funded charity set up to support men who have been raped or sexually abused.
