Margaret Cho Learned About Gay Sex From Gay Porn Mag “Ass Master”

2332

Written by:

Everyone knows native San Franciscan Margaret Cho is fluent in gay, but that wasn’t always the case. Once upon a time, the comedian got a lesson in gay sex from her mother, and it was quite the astonishing discussion.

During an interview with HuffPost Live on Tuesday about her new special “Margaret Cho: psyCHO,” which premieres Sept. 25 on Showtime, the celebrated comedian recalled the talk she had with her mom, who used a prop called “Ass Master” from the bookstore her family owned.

“She was really just trying to explain to me what gay people were like, because she didn’t know that I knew about gay people. I was probably 7 or 8,” Cho said. “So she wanted to explain to me gay people, and she had a visual aid. … She was really shocked by it, but at the same time trying to explain gay people so that I wouldn’t be alarmed.”

Porn Fitness: What It Takes To Look Good Baring It All

Dallas Steele Lifting Weights From BehindPorn is a visual medium. People watch porn for a variety of reasons, but universal is that they find the actors to be attractive. The internet has certainly expanded the genres of porn, opening the marketplace to more than just twenty-somethings with ripped abs, but for the most part, gay porn is still about hot men, with hot bodies, having hot sex. Working in gay porn requires much of same commitment to your body that traditional modeling or acting does, however, you may be able to hide a flabby stomach under a shirt or small quads under board shorts on regular shoots. When you do porn and you are naked, there is no hiding anything. Viewers are going to see all of you, even the parts you may not feel especially happy with. With that said, safe to say that most men who consider themselves “professionals” in gay porn do everything they can to try and look their best on camera.Dallas Steele TitanMen Pornstar Personal TrainerAs a teenager, I was a fat kid. At 15, I weighed 240lbs with a 42 inch waist. I was teased and bullied all through school- always the last to get picked for teams. Always the brunt of every fat joke. The boys in PE would slap the fat on my legs until I had bright red burning handprints all over. I cried everyday after school for hours, and eventually started cutting classes to avoid the pain until I finally dropped out all together. Luck for me, a teacher at school (who I now believe was/is gay) encouraged me to take my GED and go on to college two years before the rest of my class. Once in college, I had another teacher who had also been overweight, who looked at me one day and said “Is this really who you want to be? Because if it’s not, you can change, you can lose that weight.” I started walking, then running, then changed my diet, then five years later, I started lifting and have never stopped.

Dallas Steele Doing Squats At The GymI generally workout seven days per week. I lift four of those days, cardio and abs the other three. During the three weeks before a shoot, I do cardio seven days per week, sometimes twice per day. My lifting split changes about every six months. For example, it’s currently chest/triceps on Tuesday, back/biceps on Thursday, Legs on Saturday, then shoulders/traps on Sunday. Monday, Wednesday and Friday are cardio and abs days. I do 30-40 minutes of elliptical, treadmill, or step-mill, followed by three ab movements focusing on the lower, middle and upper abs with a total rep range between 270-300 per ab workout day. In the example chest/tricep sequence below, I pick one exercise from each group and do three sets of 8-12, increasing the weight until I reach complete failure by the end of the third set.

Chest/Triceps (Pick ONE exercise each group – do 3 sets of 8-12)               


Middle Chest:

Barbell Bench press

Dumbbell Bench press

Upper Chest:

Every week, my workout changes. I change the exercises. I change the order. I change the weight. Your body is exceptional at adapting, and in order to keep in growing, you’ve got to keep it guessing about what’s coming next. Workouts don’t need to be exceptionally long- no more than 90 minutes at most. Workouts DO need to be intense and focused. Most people way underestimate the amount of effort required to produce real change in their lives- and that goes for more than fitness.
Pornstar and Personal Trainer Dallas Steele Beyond what you do in the gym, at least 50% of your results are tied to what you eat and drink. I eat 5-6 meals per day. The first of those is oatmeal and cooked egg whites. Meals 2-4 are chicken/brown rice, chicken/sweet potato, chicken/red potato or as alternate proteins- extra lean ground beef, bison, tilapia, salmon, or tuna. The last meal of the day is egg whites and veggies- usually about two hours before bed. Carbs are not the enemy when you’re trying to build muscle, but you want good, complex carbs during the daytime hours then scale way back or eliminate them three hours before bedtime. I do eat restaurant meals on occasion, but I still do my best to make the best choices I can by having chicken, or a lean steak, or a great slab of fish. As a rule, I don’t ever eat fried food or anything in a cream sauce- unless it’s from a man. I do cheat on occasion when I’m outside of four weeks before a shoot. I’ll have one meal, once per week where I have anything I’d like- usually I’ll take down a large pizza and two pieces of cheesecake or maybe 1/2lbs hamburger with onion rings and a milkshake. Once that cheat meal is over, the discipline is back on right away for the next meal. Don’t let a cheat meal become a cheat weekend.

Pornstar and Personal Trainer Dallas Steele And finally, the good news is that unless you’re planning to do porn, you don’t have to be as disciplined. As a personal trainer, I tell my clients “your progress is all up to you. You decide what you want and how hard you’re willing to work.” People forget that fitness and the discipline behind it starts in the brain. One of the best overall books I’ve ever read on fitness is “Body for Life,” by Bill Phillips. Yes, he was selling product for EAS when he wrote it, but his approach addressing the mental, then the physical is excellent. Plus he explains nutrition in the most simplified way. I recommend this book to all my clients.

Do not go on a diet. Modify your eating habits as a permanent way of life. Do not start working-out. Modify your lifestyle so fitness, health and movement is a part of every single day.
I hope there is someone in your life who cares enough to say “you can do it” because I KNOW you can.

Dalton Maldonado’s New… Cologne? Hey, why not?

dalton_bottle.0

Remember a few weeks ago when the internet introduced us to the handsome 19 year-old  former high school basketball player who was  omitted from his high school year book’s team page (probably) because he had the balls to come out as gay in a very homophobic  part of the country?

Well not only has he wasted no time in becoming a role model, spokes jock, Instagram and Twitter star… he’s now also joined a select group of athletes and celebrities with their own fragrance. 

While some blogs have said it “smells like Teen Athlete,” (obviously a play on the Nirvana song), we here at Titan know that athletes tend to smell like ball sweat and musty locker rooms. Which.. you know… we all think that’s hot.

But Xyrena, the company marketing the new cologne, says it’s a “fresh athletic scent featuring top notes of grapefruit, star anise, and bergamot; middle notes of grass and ozone; and base notes of cotton flower and musk.”

Hey, whatever. 15% of gross sales of Formula 3 will be donated to the LGBT athletics organization You Can Play. So Win/Win all around.

We’d also like to point out that he’s got some pretty sweet hairy pits.

Fosse Meets Folsom In This Awesome Video

Written by:

Bob Fosse meets Tom of Finland in this fetishy dancer number in celebration of the 2015 Folsom Street Fair.

Folsom Street Fair 2015 is Sunday, September 27, 11am – 6pm on Folsom Street between 8th and 13th streets in San Francisco, CA.

San Francisco has long pushed culture boundaries, radical self-expression and sexual freedom. Today awash in stories of the changing face of the city and its quickly eroding creative communities, “Folsom Street” joyously celebrates the rich history of diversity that pushes the limits of raw sexuality that make this city the exciting cultural haven that it has always been.

Directed by Aron Kantor and featuring Broadway performer Colin Cunliffe, notorious nightlife promoter Mario Diaz, gender-queer drag queen Grace Towers, and a variety of San Francisco dancers and performers, the film serves as both a metaphor for the Folsom Street Fair and an example of the possibilities of queer community effort and activism.

Sexy Asian Guys Bring In Crowds At Food Vendors In Taiwan

Hot Asian Fruit Vendor

One of the first examples of the recent trend was 26-year-old Yi Tin Chen, dubbed “Tawian’s hottest bean curd seller.”

Long lines of women wanting to sneak a peek at Chen, who also works as a promotional model, formed at the Taipei-based tofu shop Chuan Tong Zhi Zui Dou Hua Tang.

Although many accused the shirtless worker of being placed at the store as a publicity stunt, his modeling agency denied it.

Another example of the trend is Wang Xianghong, whose toned and chiseled body was recently photographed at a fruit and vegetable store on Qiangjiang Road in Taipei’s Beitou district. His undeniably ripped six-pack has customers (mainly female) drooling as they shop for fresh produce.

Wang, who is 20 years old and 6 feet tall, says he often works shirtless for his own convenience.

Wang works at the market four days out of the week and admits that some of the older women, or “aunties,” make comments on his body and purposely move closer to him while selecting their vegetables.

Shirtless Military Men Walk To Raise Awareness For PTSD

Written by:

Last Weekend over fifty buff and gorgeous marines in San Diego walked down Pacific Beach wearing only their silkies (which double as running shorts and underwear), 22 kg packs, and their smiles. The marines walked to raise awareness of ptsd, which drives 22 vets a day to kill themselves. We honor their cause and thank them for their service (and these hot pictures). In their own words “We want all civilians to know that the best way to support your loved ones who are dealing with demons from combat, is to facilitate communication between your loved one and the men he served with in combat. If you can do that, you could save their life.”

Titanmen Daily Distractions: A rundown of the viral videos, chain emails and random things clogging the emails of the Titan office.

Oscar Winner and icon Jennifer Hudson has just released this rather anthemic song with a very classic disco vibe to promote LOGO’s “ALL50” campaign for marriage equality. Aside from the pretty catchy song, the video is rather sweet (even if it does veer a bit too close to becoming a commercial for the W Hotel).

world_penis_map• Spotify just discovered that the most popular style of music is Metal. Look for labels that are nursing wounds after sales disappointments by Britney Spears, Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Rihanna and Mariah Carey to start pumping money into finding the next Nirvana. This is what happened back in 1991 when pop music had finally reached it’s most irritating and predictable, giving way to the Grunge revolution when bands that were a meld of metal and punk took a pickaxe to the Billboard charts. After hearing that god awful new single by Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea, I think it’s time for a revolution.
