I love this site which I accidentally discovered a year ago whilst searching for an alternative to porn sites/dating sites/sites about the scene, none of which satisfy the deep desire and longing I have inside for real connection with other men. I visit this site when I need to remind myself that I am not alone, that there are other men out there who feel the same deep desire for masculine intimacy with the beautiful complexity that is man. I live far north of London where men are, as a rule, very different to the kind of beings that inhabit cosmopolitan spaces like London. The North is a lonely place for sensitive men who wish to experience more than what the scene or the virtual world has to offer. I never thought I would leave a footprint here, I generally shy away from saying anything meaningful in the virtual world which can be so shaming and toxic. But today I was moved by way I read here and I want to believe that it is possible for me and others like me to have what we desire, even in the less evolved spaces of these Islands. I want to believe that this site represents something real, something that can exist for a man like me. It has certainly inspired me to think more about how I could risk exploring something of my own up here in the coldness of the Northern wastelands. Thank you all, my beautiful, brave brothers, for your generosity and your words of love.

I find the concept of men to be interesting. There was a time when I was younger when desire for intimacy would have been strong, but now at 40 I regard my own corporeal existence with a distasteful but dutiful neutrality, and that of others with a fascinated disinterest.

  2. Dear Sir The Hermit,
    What lovely writing! Too bad that you’re where you are and I am in Maryland. I wish for you that you’ll find a Mr. Right or a few Mr. Rights in the near future. Your words could have been spoken for me and I don’t doubt many thousands of others. Best wishes!

  3. WOOF! Love furry men, well all men really, but especially furry, sweaty guys that eventually want to get naked with other guys. Dudn’t have to be sex, just men, fur, sweat, muscle. Who’s got the longer cock, lower hangin’ balls, etc. Just man fun. Who’s in for the game, who’s stayin’ overnight, and what’s the “loser” cooking for breakfast (naked, of course)?
