Hello Seb, I was brought up a catholic and i think that is where i get a lot of my “spiritual” beliefs from. Unlike many i love the “catholic” spirit but as i got older an more significantly as i became more aware of my sexuality my beliefs changed……to cut a long story short……i do like to consider my “spiritual” but not in the theoretical sense. For me spirituality is about connecting the following (which aren’t in any order of priority)

1.  I believe in the power of masculinity. I have lived with women but am gay. For me men only need men to survive. I believe that men are superior in terms of their mental, physical, spiritual, emotional and sexual power.  For me it is these characteristics that define masculinity.
2.  Men gain energy and power when they are with other men. I don’t know if you have noticed but even in a straight pub/bar the atmosphere is very different when it is men only. By themselves even straight men will play act with each other. HOWEVER, when a female enters the room (and it only takes one) the atmosphere is very different.
3.  Where there is TRUST between men there is development. I am a strong believe and very respectful of trust, truth and respect. These three characteristics are the hardest to build yet are the easiest to destroy. Where they exist they enable men to experience fulfilment as it enable men to open their minds and to shine a light on the darkest corners of their mind. I suppose in some ways it makes the impossible possible and enables the perversions to be seen as normal and healthy.
4.  Brotherhood. I believe we can all learn from and support each other. I don’t have any brothers so don’t know what it is like to have a natural brother. However, i appreciate the bonds of support and development that exists between men. I can only fantasise about what that energy is between supportive brothers. I do believe that laws should always be abided by and also believe that where men are consenting and give themselves freely is the best state. I know my beliefs are not mainstream and don’t really fit into any ‘institutionalised’ religion. I have searched and tried a few different religions most of which are Christian. I have recently spoken to a Satanist who did excite and inspire me but i think he was after a wank. I’m not sure if you understand my feelings but I do want to thank you for the opportunity to express them. All the best

  1. Mark, powerful stuff. A wank with a Satanist, now that sounds like fun. I was also brought up as a catholic, and although i was never really connected to the instruction of it, I think it embedded in me about being a good man, just like Jesus. For me my masculinity is my spirituality.

  2. This takes me back to when I was a small boy, and my father used to take me to the barber shop for a hair cut. In those days, barber shops were all MEN ONLY! And I LOVED it!! There was always just something about the atmosphere of a room full of only men that I found intoxicating, even at that early age. The environment, the sound, even the smell of all men always excited me! So I definitely agree that there is something to this. Male energy is so amazing!

    1. Thanks Cuddle55 for reminding me of the sacred barbershop experience, it’s been many years since I’ve been to one (just buzz my own head and my husband’s). As you said, as a kid it was a unique all-male place, and I just kinda “buzzed” from all the testosterone. The manly, hairy chested, distinctly masculine scented barber cutting, clipping, shaving my neck – touching me, concentrating his attention on me was something very special! I think I got wood every time, as a child and adult. Makes me want to go to a barbershop again, there are one or two close to me, may have to relive that experience! Thank you.

      1. I’m glad I was able to trigger that really amazing experience for you, brother. I remember that same “buzz” so very well! Such an intoxicating feeling that I didn’t even understand at the time because I was too young.

        And yes, all that gentle touching, particularly on the back of the neck, was awesome.

        I still go to a barbershop, but the feel isn’t quite the same as back in the day. Not quite sure why, but that’s ok.

        Hope you find a good one and enjoy yourself! Maybe you and your husband could both go, and then celebrate your manhood together when you get home! 😉

        Have fun!!

  3. I’m with you Marco. I’m a Christian, by no means Catholic. I never go to church as I don’t believe I have to to believe. Ig God loves everyone and is all forgiving, then he understands my male urges. I love everything about oral sex with men and I’m even told I’m very good at it probably because I love it so much.

  4. Wow. Really? What you said about men only need other men to survive? The reason this planet is years if not months or days away from it’s artificial demise if all due to the actions of men. Yes, I am a man. I am a gay man. I am a gay man who loves the company of other gay men and the tool they carry between their legs. But, sir, in the very simplest of ways, had it not been for any of our mothers, none of us would be here to write about how much we enjoy the company of other men. And that’s just scratching at the surface of why women are the absolute most important part of our civilization and were before our modern civilization. Just sayin’.

      1. You’ll have to explain that one to me, please. I’m not making a connection between what I said and being 18 years old. As to the value I place on humankind, one’s gender plays no role to their importance or their greatness or strength or whatever one wants to name it that day. As long as we as a society continue to strengthen the barriers that were built to divide many various factions or groups of endless differences between people, barriers put up by the very churches and theologians that I read a lot of anger and resentment towards in many comments over here.
        I’m not done fighting the war, I never will be. I’m not foolish like I was when I was 16, either. What I can do, though, is continue to be grateful to the group of young women I met when I entered St. Pius XI High School in 1974. They taught me why a woman has a right to make decisions over her own body. They taught me that no matter the color of one’s skin, where their ancestors were from, what religion they were or even if they were no religion, I was no better than anyone else. You know what my father taught me in 1967 during the race riots in Milwaukee? Well, he bought a gun. Fortunately, I never did listen to my father.

        1. So sorry, my original comment was that I was 15 when I was seduced by an older boy. My comment was changed by, I presume the admistrators to “18”, why I do not know. My comment was to that ” editing of my original ” comment. I have tried expressing that same scenario in other sites, and it was either rejected completely or something else. I am aware that at that age, 15, being sexually seduced is considered illegal, but my point to the original story, regarding my Catholic upbringing was not of a legal aspect. Only that my strict religious beliefs of my mother hindered me. I shouldn’t have felt the guilt, anxiety, fear etc from the sexual pleasure I was experiencing, but be able to embrace it. I apologize for the confusion. I was a attempting to correct the change from my original comment. I obviously failed. Again, my apologies

      1. Oh, whoa. I hope you’re not apologizing and saying you failed simply because there was some slight case of not understanding. You cleared it up perfectly. It could be nothing but I hope it’s not any of the residual Catholic guilt that millions of recovering Catholics suffer. This is only an opinion, I have absolutely not one shred of data to base it on, but I do believe that all LGBTQ+’s have some very trying childhoods, to say the least. Fortunately, I really did meet a fabulous group of peers within the first month or two of my freshman year. I stopped drinking the kool-aid during 8th grade. Before I was a Sophomore I know longer believed. It probably took me until my early 20’s to not have that slightest, lingering in the corner of my mind fear that just maybe, if I died that night, there just might be that God that I just denied and I was possibly going to Purgatory. I wasn’t having any of the Hell bullshit. It also helped greatly that I was quite a rebellious teenager who was not living under my parents roof any longer at the age of 17. It was hard, it was a blast, and it all worked out in the end.

        1. Trust me Robert, I love my mother dearly, may she rest in peace. However, all of my guilt, shame, fear and anxiety is a result of my Catholic upbringing. Looking back, (50’s and 60s, is a double edge sword. If I had embraced the gay side as I wanted to, I may have died from AIDS like so many of my friends. Waiting until I was uch older, with more sexual experience I was ready to embrace my desire for sex with men. Even though I had several friends that I yearned to engage with sexually, I didn’t out of fear, guilt, etc. I wish I had. But that was then,I’m way over it and I engage in my M2M sexual desires whenever I can.

        2. Ultimately, as with all things this personal in nature, to each their own. In the end, we are all the ultimate decision makers for ourselves and the only one who can judge how we decided.
          Just in case, as I know I can come off a bit what may seem opinionated, if I did I apologize.

  5. I was raised by a very, strict, Catholic mother. I was so naive, it really messed up my head. I thought all sex was bad, sinful, jerking off would send me to hell. At 18 I was seduced by an older boy and got my first blow job. I thought it was so wonderful. I jerked him off, feeling his warm, hard cock in my hand was awesome, but feeling him cum all over me was heavenly. I left feeling scared, guilty, confused, and so fucked in the head. Now, 60 + years later I am not a Catholic, marginally religious, and I love sucking cock, pussy, most all things sexual. I almost missed out on all of that. Had I followed the beliefs that I was taught, I would have.
