New thread time! Let's talk about our cities and our local gay scenes in whatever form or shape they take, how much we interact with these scenes and in what capacity as well as what we like about them, what we think could make them better or what is lacking as they are now.

I'm really interested in knowing how people gay in other cities as I've only really lived in two in my entire adult life. This should be a fun thread.

Rules: Stay on topic, if the topic strays make a new thread, be brutally honest cuz I really wanna know how you guys size up your local cities. You do not have to reveal the name of the city.

I grew up in Chicago which has a pretty solid community scene, complete with rainbow pylon street markers throughout "boystown". When I was in my early 20s, it was damn fun. Though, personally, I always felt like there was this constant implicit pressure to conform and identify with a gay subgroup.
When I moved to Pittsburgh, the scene was a lot more relaxed, blue-collar, and less prominent, but by no means hidden or secret. I actually enjoyed that, and ended up being pretty active in the Burgh Bears for a number of years.
When I moved back to Illinois, I wanted to be closer to work, which was out of the city. Since both me and my partner cook and don't like crowds that much, the draw city nightlife wasn't particularly strong (especially since we seem to be quieting down as we get older). We occasionally take day trips into the city for the museums or visiting friends, and miss the access and convenience of public transportation but that's really it. I don't really miss the regular involvement in a gay scene, and to me, it's way more fun to occasionally travel for Pride someplace instead (Toronto pride is pretty kick-ass).


It's pretty gay in Orlando. Too bad everyone is a vapid dumb whore (me included)
There's too much social posturing, and everyone either has a perfect body or is horrifically fat or I'm still too young to date them without feeling I'm dating my father.



When you were in Chicago did you ever check out Jackhammer or Touche? theyre sleazy as hell, but definitely cater to a more blue collar scene. There's still a lot of posturing and conformity though.


From Toronto, Canada. Very large gay community that has been spreading itself out around the city. The gaybourhood (church and Wellesley village) has been slowly dying over the years due to small gay-owned business being kicked out and replaced with Starbucks and other big franchises. It’s mostly alive due to the huge gay population and tourism every year for pride. Most of the city is generally very safe and accepting and has become a nice city for gay married couples to raise kids though which is always nice to see; however, like other cities it still has a lot of bad areas so you still have to be careful.

Within the community, white, straight-acting, young, wealthy and successful muscle bears are put up on a magical pedestal (even though rarely anyone fits that criteria). For a city so diverse and wonderful, it can be incredibly intolerant and hateful and grinder culture has a noticeable “no fats, no fems, no asians, no blacks” feeling to it. Due to the sheer number of gay guys, it’s still easy to find a hook up. Hard to find love though.

I’ve lived in Toronto my whole life and I’d recommend visiting it for TONS of cool shit to see and do, but it’s overpriced to live in and the gay village desperately needs to change.


i'm not the guy you were asking, but I loved jackhammer when I lived in chicago. It was within walking distance and I hated everything in boystown except Berlin. Wasn't into the scene there (not into leather or fisting or getting pissed on or whatever they get up to in the basement), but the crowd was so much more pleasant and less pretentious than like… sidetracks

Im in Tampa now and I actually bartended here for a while and I like the sense of community. There aren't so many of us here. Tons of gays move to chicago, sf, la, ny, miami even orlando (but they can keep disney gays) - tampa not so much, though tampa metro is kind of a magnet for the region so there are a few thousand of us at least. Everyone doesn't KNOW everyone, but everyone is AWARE of everyone.

The City has a long antagonistic history with us, blocking most gay specific events in public spaces up until about 10 years ago. There's still a good bit of homophobia, but it's mostly kept in check by political correctness for now. By that I mean people know to signal that they accept gays and respect them as human beings, but if they don't clock you and no one else is listening they'll let you know how they really feel.

Anyone else here into it? I've recently started getting into more.

Also, General non-nerdy things thread. In all For nerdy stuff, but I feel like we don't have a thread for other kinds of hobbies yet.

Pics related; took them like 5 minutes ago

Those just look like phalaenopsis, don't worry, they're idiot-proof. I have one in my bathroom that's covered in mealybug and hasn't been watered for 5 months and it's still alive.


Apparently not since people regularly purchase these orchids, overwater them and never repot them so they die all the time.

When these babies revitalize, if they survive, I'm planning on installing them on a piece of wood for a nice display on my porch but that will take time to plan. They're really beautiful but apparently not as hardy as my Cuban orchids.

You're right. I keep underestimating people's ability to kill plants…….
What I meant to say is they it's deadbeat dad proof, you can't kill it with neglect.

It has been an absolutely perfect year for roses in PA. Currently trying out 3 different roses I got this spring, one that I've been looking for for at least three years. Fragrant cloud, double delight, and the bolero romantica.

They were all growing so unbelievably well I actually let them bloom and omg, the scent, I cannot wait until they're mature enough for long stem cuttings.

Hobbies eh? Hm, mine are rather… frilly, for the most part, but… I enjoy arts and craft stuff; sewing, crochet, lacemaking, sculpting, drawing, etc… I like doing research too (as weird as it sounds), mostly on how to make things, the history of it all, blah blah blah… (Sorry if the photo's suck, my phone is cheap… Like a Korean boob job)

Rather jealous of you gardeners though, I can only retard plants… Can't make em flourish, nor can I kill them… I torture them in a perpetual hell.

I admit, it would be neat to hear you play something.

Hey guys! A friend of mine and I are planning to do a Dota 2 Dating Sim, and we made a poll to help us choose what characters to put into the game if you don't mind voting!

Also this thread would make a great discussion about what you'd rather see in a dating sim and such. And would you people rather have a patreon for the game and a final free product, or just buy the game when it's done?

Picture related, my art.

Everyone you named would be great in the game, and I kinda wish I had a couple more sets of arms so I could draw 30 characters for the game. So we'll have to see the popular votes!
If I'm willing to share anything else, just ask away. It's in pretty early concept but I'd love discussing about it.
And elder, Duh


I see titans being longer but tidehunters being thicker and stubbier


The voting could have been done better/more organized. But too awesome of a selection!

Are you doing an elimination sort of voting? We, voting multiple times; And you, reducing the number after each round? Till every gender slot is filled?


that's a funny way to say brew master.


Whoa, that's a large selection of champs!
As long as Earth Spirit and Tidehunter are in im happy.

Ayyy lmao

So I'm going to Tokyo and surprisingly enough, I have a straight friend to go with me who knows I'm into the leather/S&M scene. And him being the open minded kinda guy he is, actually wants me to bring him to an event/bar catered to it because he's never seen that kinda thing.

I thought about playing it safe and bringing him to the Eagle like the one in SF but the one in Tokyo seems much more conservative from all the research I've done.

Anyone here have any suggestions about leather bars in Toyko that aren't blatant sex clubs? Even if it's straight.



Does such a thing exist?


s&m isn't exclusive to gay men so yes


More than gay ones actually, the difference is once most of them are used to cheat on married partners, they are not as out as the gay ones.

Hi all, I have a side project that is to translate a bara game for my BF that wants to play it but don't understand japanese. Are there anyone that could help me how you can convert the letters in the game? Thank you!

Whut is the game in the picture?


That game is Fantastic Boyfriends. There's supposed to be a translation of the game, but it seems to be moving along at a snail's pace from what I've heard.


Sorry for not replying for so long. Are you translating the game yet?


If you want to give machine translation a try, head over to http://sakuradite.com/ and grab Visual Novel Reader.

It will take a bit to set up, but once you are done you will get something that will work and can get an idea of what is going on.

Also, grab http://pooi.moe/Locale-Emulator/ to ensure local emulation works properly. Visual Novel Reader has one built in but is not all that reliable.

Hey, So I've been streaming myself drawing bara (censored/softcore) on twitch, but I hate not getting to draw dicks (lol) because of their terms of service that're REAL strict about no artistic nude. Do any Bara artists stream themselves drawing? If so, through which website/means do they do that?

thanks for your answers… here's one of my copic drawings… hope you dig ;u;


where and when do you stream normaly?

post more!


Well as far as i know there´s picarto

I know there's been some requests for certain Bara text stories out there (like the ones made by BigBlueProstatePoker), but there's no real good place to put them. Since we have a separate board for comics featuring bara, could we get a new board dedicated to bara text stories?


No reply to this? Really? No one knows or wants a board dedicated to written bara stories?


When I look for stories to read, I don't really look for "Bara"; with very few stories that have illustrations, and depending on how descriptive the write is, I can just fudge some of the details like race, height, and body type…

Plus, since you can't permanently host a story on a board, it might be hard to look up/search for stories that you've previously read on a board.


There was once one a sub board of Bara Stories and Stories in general, but it was deleted cause almost no one posted there. Instead, use the other forums for that. Maybe dis, etc or alt work for you now. Although we could use this same thread to post story sources for Bara stories.


This exact reason stated here.

We had a board in the past because it was surprisingly heavily requested, but once I implemented it it got a total of 2, maybe 3 stories posted, the rest of it was just people requesting eRP on skype, or attempting it on the board. All of which filled up not even two pages.

So during the great board update/migration, it was decided that it was not worth keeping due to the inactivity and how literally everything inside of it could have been posted /dis/ instead.

So yeah, you're welcome to post or discuss stories, but you'll have to do so on /dis/.


Here is what I have; I wish I could find more

Depends…are we talking bottom or top?
For bottoms I don't think it's as much to do with clothes as it is to do with body language. Just try one of these three poses. Just casually work them into your typical day, eventually people will pick up on your vibes.


in my experience, mansluts have no particular fashion look. its actually his look. his eyes. you'd know you're being checked out and stripped naked by his eyes alone. the intent in that look is all you need to know.


Thanks for your answers.
I thinked about physical features like big butt and things like that


It depends on what you mean and what you're looking for, I guess? I'd consider myself a slut, as I love casual sex and seek out a broad range of sexual partners, and I tend to look like a hobo.

If you're cruising for mansluts, try going to typically gay areas and see who's got either really tight clothes all over (e.g. skinny jeans, tank tops), or saggy clothing that shows a lot of skin. Part of the reason why sagging became a fashion trend is because punks in prisons let their clothes sag to indicate they were ready to get fucked, for example. A lot of slutty dudes I've met tended to be either really clean-shaven, or hairy with a good beard.

As for what a manslut should look like, if you're looking to convey your own availability, it's really up to you. Again, lots of manslut "types" tend to go deep into one end or the other, e.g. smooth vs. hairy, prim and proper versus super-loose, etc., to say nothing of accessories like leather gear, boots and the like, and you're under no obligation to push yourself into any of those niches. If your goal is to get a lot of sex, try going to cruising spots or using dating apps, and if you really want to convey you're sexually available to someone you know, the best way to go about it is usually to just tell them directly.


I think all men are sluts, they only stop hoeing temporarily when the AIDS scare gets too serious or they get the clap or something. Really just depends on the week.
I have noticed that men with tattoos, piercings, or into some kind of visible fetish tend to have HIV a lot more frequently. Whether this is a result of them being a slut, who can be certain?

It's called Witanlore: Dreamtime. It is available for purchase on Steam for $6.99


recently bought it; its still really really early access, incredibly rough to play, but it shows quite a bit of promise


OMG Link Plis

anybody knows a walkthrough to this game or what you have to do?


It's a visual novel. You read the dialogue, look at the pretty pictures, and occasionally make choices that will hopefully lead to sexing.

On the subject of this game, I'm surprised no-one's attempted a translation since it's been some time now since it was made freeware.


Here's a guide. It's in Japanese but you can guess what everything is if you Google translate the website.
