While Googling for something the other day (I honestly can’t remember what), one of the resulting websites had a link to something called RealJock. The site’s tagline is “Gay sports and gay fitness for gay jocks, athletes, and fitness buffs.” Um, what exactly is gay sports & fitness? Maybe it means that all activities are accompanied by disco music and bitchy banter. (Sorry, I’m a little behind on my stereotypes!) Predictably, a few clicks reveals this to be just another hookup-for-sex hub masquerading as a mens’ fitness site. It’s aimed squarely at the jock types, and since these guys are typically only interested in each other, this site is mighty convenient!
Back when I was a regular on gay “dating” sites, the user profiles for jocks used to crack me up. Usually they say stuff like “There’s more to life than sex…I’m looking for something more fulfilling. I want a relationship with a sensitive guy who isn’t hung up on physical looks.” This appears right next to a self-photo of the user’s oiled-up pecs, sixpack abs, and flexing butt cheeks. All of which is fine on its own, but come on…let’s not pretend you’re not all about the muscles, hmmm?
