Jeremy Helligar

I miss the days when gay men had to approach each other in-person and at least pretend to be interested in more than "Top or bottom?" and "Hung?" Now guys are less likely to talk to me when they spot me. Instead they'll find me on Grindr after getting home and then cut right to the crude chase: "NSA?" "Fun?"

When I moved away from home, my nightstand naturally came with me.
