Two questions were put to me in comments that were made in the last 24 hours or so. One was Patrick asking what church that was in the pic posted yesterday of the two guys kissing. Well, there were two reasons why I saved that pic when I came across it, I cannot quite recall where, one was that those are to my taste two magnificently masculine guys and the kissing is so passionate it makes my cock hard. Then, the church behind is the basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli in Piazza della Repubblica right in the centre of Rome. This is a church that I know well and love for its enclosing so much history. Its whole design and art-work is a chef d’oeuvre of Michelangelo Buonarroti, who adapted one of the halls of Diocletian’s baths to create it. So that the brickwork you are looking at in that picture would date back to the year 306. After Michelangelo various people had a go at re-furbishing it. The Carthusian Order had it for about three hundred years, until they were thrown out at the reunification of Italy in 1870, but they had time to re-orientate the entire structure. The remains of their monastery is behind it.
Yesterday’s other question was from Rick of Torn Jeans. “Don't the men in Europe feel more comfortable with each other than the men in the US? Straight men that is.” Well, I cannot really say that I have observed any great difference between US and Europe as such. I notice some sort of difference in Europe as you go further south. Around the Mediterranean guys seem to be much more naturally and uninhibitedly male-bonding and more at home with either the married gay situation or the bisexual situation. Perhaps its just that down there where the sun shines and wine is always available life is just generally more passionate and adaptable.
