Anti-Anti-Gay: ATTITUDE Editor Matthew Todd On Our Literal STRAIGHT Jackets Comments (0)

Matthew Todd, Attitude's longtime EIC, writes passionately about the inordinate amount of depression and anxiety still experienced by LGBT people, in spite of so many advances we've made in the past 20 years:

Culturally, homosexuality and misery have been linked so tightly by the haters over the years that they have become an offensive cliché to the point where any discussion is dismissed as prejudice. But discuss it we must.

More and more statistics reveal that LGBT people have higher levels of depression, anxiety, addiction and suicidal thoughts. The British Crime Survey 2009 showed that gay men used illicit drugs three times more than heterosexual men. It’s hardly a surprise. As therapist and author Joe Kort states so well in his book 10 Smart Things Gay Men Can Do to Improve Their Lives, what’s wrong is not our sexuality, but our experience of growing up in a society that still does not fully accept that people can be anything other than heterosexual and cisgendered (ie born into the physical gender you feel you are). It is the damage done to us by growing up strapped inside a cultural straitjacket—tight-fitting, one-size restraint imposed on us at birth—that leaves no room to grow. It makes no allowances for the fact that, yes, indeed, some people are different and we deserve—and need—to be supported and loved for who we are, too.

Worth noting is the fact that regardless of how much more positive the climate is today for LGBT people, it's still toxic, and more importantly, it was far more toxic during the years when most LGBT adults were growing up:

A Hole 'Nother Level: Here's The World's First Pot-Infused Suppository Comments (0)

Unnamed(Image via FORIA)

I personally have never understood the world's obsession with pot, and I've also never understood some guys' obsession with anal sex. I mean, I like it, too, like committing it, like watching it, think about it all the time—but some guys make it seem like it's their profession. Or rather, their life's mission.

If you're one of those guys, or even if you're just looking for a smoother ride, FORIA may be the product for you. And thankfully, they didn't get cutesy in the naming process, like going with Doobie Stickin' It In or Oh, Maryjane!

FORIA Explore is heralded as the first cannabis-infused anal suppository designed to deepen pleasure during anal play. I'm sure this stuff is the shit!

From a press release:

Designed with two main goals in mind, FORIA Explore is the first all-natural herbal product designed to enhance anal pleasure and diminish the discomfort of anal play, all without risky chemicals or side-effects. (Till now, many aficionados of anal sex have relied on questionable substances to assist in making anal sex more comfortable and pleasurable.)

“CBD slows down electrical signaling to muscles, causing relaxation, thereby allowing FORIA Explore to reduce discomfort without numbing or desensitizing the anal area or surrounding tissues. CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties can go a long way for the person being penetrated (both during and after),” said Cannabis Sexual Health Educator, Ashley Manta of Cannasexual.com.

Each suppository contains 60mg of C02-extracted THC and 10mg of a CBD isolate from organic hemp. These compounds are absorbed locally and activate cannabinoid receptors throughout the pelvic region. Explore contains all-natural jojoba extract for its soothing and moisturizing properties. “While the FDA has approved jojoba for use in latex-compatible lubricants that are currently on the market (Pjur Backdoor, Simply Slick), FORIA Explore has not yet been submitted to the FDA for testing, due to current laws. In intimate situations that require the utmost safety measures, we recommend using non-latex condoms while using Explore,” notes FORIA’s Co-CEO Jon Brandon.

FORIA chose to launch Explore in tandem with June's celebration of LGBT PRIDE. In keeping with their commitment to both sexual health and wellness, FORIA has partnered with SPARC, a nonprofit medical cannabis collective in San Francisco dedicated to providing lab-tested, affordable, high quality cannabis and subsidized health services to its members. SPARC will act as the premiere dispensary offering FORIA Explore for purchase June 9th thru June 26th with an in-store “Explore PRIDE” celebration taking place Thursday, June 23rd, 2016 from 4PM to 7PM at 1256 Mission St. San Francisco, CA 94114.

Yeah, don't miss that in-store event.

Debbie Gibson Relates To Prince's Struggle, Opens Up On Prescription-Drug Abuse Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-05-12 at 10.30.16 AM(Video still via Oprah: Where Are They Now?)

Via Oprah: Where Are They Now?: In an interview for Oprah's nostalgic Where Are They Now? series, Debbie Gibson pokes holes in her squeaky-clean image by coming out as a former prescription-drug abuser.

Inspired by the death of Prince, Gibson speaks candidly about her problem:

I remember being on the road at, like, 25, touring with theater and doing my own cocktail of Tylenol PM and Xanax.

She says her problem is Hollywood's problem:

When I heard the news about Prince and the fact that it might have been prescription drug–related, I really had a moment of like, 'That’s awful and that’s sad, and I can relate,' and unfortunately, 90 percent of the entertainment community can relate. It’s a matter of time before someone’s next if people don’t talk about this.

Tune in later this year for the full interview.

Sinéad O'Connor Fingers Arsenio Hall As Drug Conduit, Bitch Comments (0)

Sinéad O'Connor is, at this point, not taken very seriously, but the charges she leveled on Facebook yesterday are pretty serious: She accused Arsenio Hall as being the source “where prince got his drugs over the decades.”

For good measure, she also throws in the well-worn rumor that Hall had a sexual relationship with Eddie Murphy, and a new one I hadn't heard, that Hall was also involved romantically with Prince.

Well, “romantically” is a stretch when the woman is calling him the entertainer's “bitch.”

BILLBOARD Honors Prince, Multiple Outlets Conjecture About Roles Of Drugs & AIDS In His Death Comments (0)

When I was in magazine publishing, I had to write entire tribute issues to Princess Diana (sold over a million copies; I made $800 as a bonus only, because I was salaried) and JFK Jr. When Michael Jackson died, my boss decided not to do one because it would be distasteful, a decision he soon regretted when he realized every thrown-together tribute was making scads of cash.

Every time someone really, really famous dies, to this day I think, Man, we would've done a tribute to them.

Prince tributes are already clogging the newsstands, but Billboard, one of the most appropriate sources, is now out with theirs.

Inside, Tom Carson dubs Prince the greatest artist of his generation, Claire Hoffman chronicles his flip-flopping views on sex and homosexuality thanks to his devotion as a Jehovah's Witness,  Sheila E. opens up about her ex-lover and longtime friend and Prince's final concert's set list is devoured in detail.

Sadly, it's looking more and more likely that Prince had a long drug addiction. Media reports are also ramping up that he was struggling with AIDS—not just HIV—due to refusing medication in favor of seeking a cure from God. What a devastating black mark on his overall legacy if it turns out the man refused treatment for HIV, when he could have lived with it for decades more rather than dying at 57.
