BUTT Magazine is predicting a resurgence of “the look-back, the stop, the double-look-back and the approach,” and I too have caught whiffs of online-hookup fatigue in backrooms across the West Coast. Now, two new entrepreneurs are hoping to capitalize on the revival of street cruising with a new app (you can buy it here) that will transform your iPhone into a virtual hankie:
We no longer need to wear our stripes like our gay forebears (pun intended) in order to find and connect with fellow gays. We can do all that in a dark room.. with our computers. As a result we have once again become invisible. And as long as we remain invisible we will never truly gain our equal rights.
As much as I’d like to believe that flagging “piss bottom” will pave the way for marriage equality, I’m not convinced that the app offers a viable alternative for hooking up online. Whether street cruising is making a comeback or not, I still think that the hankie code is dead for good, and here’s why: most gay sluts are more concerned with who they have sex with than what they do during sex. In other words, mutual sexual attraction trumps hankie compatability, and if two guys find each other hot, then odds are everything is going to work out just fine.
For example, let’s say you love to 69, which means you’ll flag Robin’s Egg Blue in your left pocket. Then, let’s say two men approach you. One is gross, and he says, “I love to 69!” Another is hot, and he says, “Let’s hook up, but I don’t 69.” You’re going home with the hot guy.
So while I doubt the hankie code will make a revival, it’s certainly possible that apps like this one will keep gay history alive and maybe even help bring cruising back into the daylight. The makers of this app tell BUTT:
If you’re at a coffee shop or a restaurant somewhere and you’re working on your computer you can have your iPhone to the left or to the right of your computer or your coffee and guys walk by and the notice it and they’re like ‘hmm.’
Just make sure not to confuse Brown Lace (“Uncut”) with Brown (“Scat”).

A source has leaked details to The Sword about a new fucky fucky extension that will not be beholden to any of Apple's pearl-clutching restrictions.
I don't take sex seriously enough to commit to a Master/slave dynamic, so instead I'll just read this new blog written by a 39-year-old British sub slut named Fang.
1. You know it's a leather orgy when everyone takes a moment between foreplay and fucking so they can put their clothes back on.
When I discovered that a friend of mine trims his chest hair, I told him to think of the children in Africa who have no chest hair to shave in the first place. Now I've found a fur-obsessed Photoshopper who is helming the good fight against body shavers everywhere.
The hypothesis: you can put a shitload of condoms on a dildo. The conclusion: you can put a shitload of condoms on a dildo.
