I miss Stephen, what a huge loss for the gay community his death was. This column that he wrote and you reposted just brought him back to life for me for a bit. Thank you!

Stephen! I think it is important to hear these pitfalls coming from a beautiful man...So people know that aging is okay. I'm with ya! But now when I do get an erection around someone-I know it means "something". We're not dead sexually, we are just reacting to it less from our groins. Our dicks have brains now!

I am glad I'd read this. It explains so much of what I was going thru.

this wasn't an article about safe sex, people. relax. this was about sex and testosterone levels and if it offends your sensibilities or history, that's your problem. I found it VERY helpful and I can totally relate! Thanks, Stephen. You're hot! Let's do it! ;-)

While I empathize with many aspects of his story, I think it is completely inappropriate for Honestly, I thought I would get to the end and the moral would be "I found out I was HIV+ and that was causing testroene lvl drops." Instead the moral is he went from being an insensitive, unfeeeling whore to a caring, self-aware whore? No mention of safety or EVER being tested. Seems like this article tacitly promotes promiscuity. This 13 yo article does not seem worth reposting in any way.

I noticed in your story you did not mention once about being safe just having meaningless sex. this is why HIV is so out of control right now . it makes me think you sound like a very sad individual that has never had a real relationship and you were probably never safe during any of this

All sides should be head, good for the would be whores, former whores and just for knowledge, getting carried away with the wrong thing is the msg I got from his post, its been a stepping stone for him.

Articles like this disgusting human being does nothing but to portray all gay men as sleazy whores out for sex. I just wasted 3 minutes of my life to read about his "Smacking Penis"? I was diagnosed by a long-term partner who cheated on me, And I have been celibate since 2004. I guess Mr. Smacker cannot imagine going that long without sex, but some of us take HIV far more seriously. I am as handsome as he. POZ magazine needs to maintain some space for worthy articles, not playgirl trash.
