    I just logged in for the first time in months when i saw this podcast on my feed. I be side eyeing some of yall opinions but its all laughs lmfao. i do agree with the steve lacy thing…his dad is full east asian by the way, so hes actually biracial – he posted it on ig. hes like 19,the discussion is tired at this point. i did see someone say he might be trying not to scare his str8 blk friends off…which…lulz.

    Great hearing yall back at it again

    Straight dudes
    Yeah sometimes I have to watch myself with them. Have me thinking like damn only if you was on "my team". Its def more of me being attracted to the nonchalant masculinity.

    Youtubers transitioning

    To be honest I don't know if its true or not. I feel just like they saw Brandon aka Joann the Scammer's start from tumblr to his rise to pop fame and are trying copy him.

    Bobby Valentino
    I like dudes music especially his Peach Moon EP. He seems like a nice dude and makes good music. I just love his southern accent when he speaks. The escort shouldn't have outed him Didn't she know him previously. Also ain't that bad for business for "her". Like ain't one of the top things in that "line of work" is discretion and not outing customers. Who would hire her now? And how much money was Bobby short of? She should have let him do a payment plan; we all fall short of cash lol.

    Speaking of escorts
    :evilkermit:@Nick Delmacy just make the appointment and have some fun. And tell cypher ave the story later lol

    :sass2: sooooo @Nick Delmacy ur not goin to talk about your AUC homecoming experience. Any ole "friends"?…..
    Meet any new "friends"……college youings? :diddydatazz:

    Dormtainment does a great underrated podcast. I don't even think a lot of people even know about because I look at the number of listens on soundcloud. These are black dudes my age that talk pop culture, but also talk about life and their grind in Hollywood. You honesty learn some good lessons listening to them. And most importantly they aren't hoteps. They aren't ignorant. They are funny, intelligent and a great listen. They're all hetero though.

    Nobody cares Bobby V left without paying a hooker. What they do care about is that hooker is trans and not cis passing whatsoever. With a deep ass voice talking about I got your keys and your shoes. Bitch keep em.

    It was great to hear the sweet sweet banter of the Nock (Nic & Ock) on this podcast. I was madd laughing when Nick shared his wild thoughts on considering in taking an "adventure" with an escort. Most have thought about it or was curious. I appreciate your being honest about that. Way to stay thorough. Nick's story was reminiscent of my own experience. So, if any one cares or interested………………………..

    Buying Sex from Male Whores

    I cant watch black women in Str8 Porn either, for the same reason.

    Rico | October 28th, 2017

    Nick sounded especially “refreshed”…Guess LA is doing you good.

    And yeah, what Ock said about the theoretical black men’s network is true. Black women have that “what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine” mentality and would find a way to de-brotherize the network. They did this with Million Man March. A million black men gather without so much as a fist fight and all we got from the black feminists was “What about MEEEEEEEEEEE?!?!?”

    @Nick Delmacy you are not the only one who is old-fashioned. I have many of the same issues with black gay men when it comes to talking about being close with exes, sex with friends, etc. I am just more conservative and traditional in my views when it comes to all that. I just want to find more friends and a future partner who is like-minded. I don't desire to have sex with any of my friends and I don't desire to have a partner who wants to be close with his ex. Nope! Not for me!

    African King | October 29th, 2017

    Loved the new podcast.

    It flowed well and I actually sided more with @Nick Delmacy when it comes to the friends with exes thing. I don't understand it.

    As far as the gay touching, I was very uncomfortable with it at first but now I don't mind a hug or whatever from behind but I stop things when they become inappropriate or too sexual. The things I will see friends do to each other and grinding on each other on the dance floor… I'm like YO! I can't do it man!

    Disclaimer: Don't come to Cardi's hometown thinking you could slide in a niggas DMs because he knows the lyrics to Bodak, you might just get shot out here in The BX. Don't subscribe to what Nick is saying, leave that shit in ATL or LA where everybody's gay.

    Look at y'all! Podcasting and stuff…

    – yaaasss for the sb3 name drop and @Nick Delmacy saying to @Ockydub 'see'! 'It's just about bein yo self' (I got $10 for anyone who knows this quote). And I also suppose I missed hearing @RolandG boyfriend's voice on these here podcasts.

    – in my head, I'm still not above hiring a really hot, we'll worth the money escort one good time…but I think my inner rationalizer would get in the way. But maybe not if I have a drink, or 5…everything would just have to align like the stars, and we all know how rarely that happens…

    – the biggest reaction of the night in a club filled w mostly white gay dudes was for Cardi/Bodak Yellow..ijs

    – lil Kim is blatantly unattractive at this point. Lets call it.

    – Steve Lacy is 12. And I only know who he is because of his quote.

    – my only concern w blk women in porn is who the dude smashing her is…

    – y'all are gonna stop acting like y'all don't know how to say funky dineva/actv/etc. They arent everyone's cup of tea but it's hard to be blk, gay, a seeker of related content, and unaware of their existences.

    – I've still never been fishing…

    – fuk all of these web series! If we pretend they don't exist, then maybe they'll disappear…

    – ocky, save ur Asian fetish for myvidster.

    – many guys w a bunch of tatts end up regretting their decisions (typically made in youth).

    – yes, nick ur attraction to hanging w str8s is all about their natural masculinity. Im the same way. Ima go out on a limb and say that you going on these filler dates w these fem guys is a banana in the tailpipe.

    – I DO think being friends w exes is possible. I've done it.

    – I'm extremely non-traditional, so I vote no on these 'heteronormative' weddings.

    – I think ppl agree w ocky more because he's a lot more blk n white, in general, it seems. Nick has devil's advocate in his blood and secretly gets off on being 'difficult'.

    – Not a sex bed, and a different sleep bed, ocky! Y'all done been together since Martin was still on the air (in gay years) so ima need y'all to be ok w laying in the juices. Yes, I'm making the decisions for your relationship, and other's.

    – I'm not a touchy feely person, but I don't mind it if someone else is, and naturally interacts that way, even w my dude. But, again, I'm also very non traditional, and not jealous, AT ALL. If my dude strays, that's on him. I got no problem sharing a bed or anything like that. I'm loyal to a fault and wouldnt ever disrespect anyone elses relationship; especially not anyone w whom I'd ever be sharing a bed.

    – the next podcast better be about more than just some comic book talk! Idk anything about them, and I'm obviously the only listener who matters.

    – I had time today. Thanks…

    Good to have you back – liked the quick takes format

    I thought the podcast series was out the window, good to see y'all are back.

    It's interesting getting the POV from you guys generation vs the younger ones. I think the different era and lack of influence passed down shows.

    I was pleasantly surprised to see this podcast show up in my queue. As always, I was entertained, I laughed, I sighed. I researched some of the topics that I missed. Great job gents. If you want a weekly news, politics, and life podcast check out "Irrelevantly Relevant" which is hosted by one gay and one straight, black men, millennial types, both talking heads on cable news.

    I think this podcast may apply to what you all say is missing.

    Yea, I give them a listen every so often. I haven't listened to it in a while but from what I remember, the straight dude makes some lowkey ignorant comments sometimes.

    Do women who have married their best friend tell their husbands about their hot flashes, cramps and fibroids?

    I tend to agree with @OckyDub more because I just relate to him more but @Nick Delmacy does seem like he wanna be Contrary Mary a lot. No shade. Lol

    Hell as soon as the two beds were mentioned I had thought one for sleeping and one for screwing. Like… It just makes sense.

    Maybe the web series actors are praised because they look relatable to the shows viewers? Also maybe the producers can't find many other actors who will actually act on the show, are available, or are reliable and consistent?

    Y'all know once Tre Melvin hears about this his team is going to show up.

    @Nick Delmacy LA Adventure seems to mirror a lot of what I have heard about black gay southern California men. It's slim pickings. However I have no problem with going down the rainbow but lol there's this porn actor Ken Ott, he's Filipino I think, nice body and everything but when he opens his mouth…so disappointing. Lol

    As far as these black guys not dating black guys, I kinda get it buy i have to remember the saying that your skin folk ain't your kin folk and vice versa. There's no kumbaya meeting amongst black men to just get along and be brotherly.

    Jacob looked better as a male. Just my opinion. Now he looks like somebody's auntee. Like 28 year old man turned into a 38 year old woman. Maybe she just needs better hair installed? Good for her though. Shame she can't reclaim all that time spent at the gym from before.

    Lil Kim looks like she's a long lost cousin of the Jacksons. Like that's one of Joe's outside kids but he tossed her some money under the table so she could have a similar life as Janet and them had.

    Y'all know I'm OK with people paying for the escorts. Cause Y'all ain't finna give Kevin with one leg or Damario with cerebral palsy, or 87 year old mister Williefred on the senior usher board any boodee or peen.

    I'm glad for Cardi b but I'm not feeling her. The song is catchy but she needs to keep her momentum up. Maybe she'll grow as an artist? Meanwhile I think Dej Loaf, Young Ma and princess Nokia are being slept on and I only have a causal knowledge of those three ladies.

    Yeah that Johnny Boykins dude used to be a fan of the site…sort of…He found our site in 2014 but if you go back and read his comments he was very scolding of us whenever we even mentioned gay femininity. Then in late 2015 we got this from Mailchimp:

    Screen Shot 2017-11-09 at 9.06.55 AM.png

    Regardless, good for him. The episode of their podcast I just heard is kinda boring but is DEFINITELY in line with what @OckyDub was looking for. To be honest, the BOTH "sound gay" but I didn't get a femm gay vibe, their topics are straight-up news punditry like you said.

  19. OckyDub
    OckyDub | November 9th, 2017

    Um…sir that would be a negative.

    I hope like hell my own podcast aren't this boring.

    At least I get heated and live with some of my shit. These dudes sound like they eating cheese and grapes while cherub fan them.

  20. OckyDub
    OckyDub | November 9th, 2017

    Ok…now I remember dude. Oh yeah…he is a Queer Culture subscriber. Naw, Cypher Ave was beneath him and his husband's lifestyle.

    I just meant from the perspective that they aren't talking about women or feminism.
