Invasion Of The Snatched Bodies: How I Lost 15 Pounds In 6 Weeks Comments (0)

Mark-Fisher-Brian-Patrick-MurphyMark & Brian, whom you'll meet on the transformation highway.

BOY CULTURE REVIEW: ***1/2  OUT OF ****

I wasn't gay-fat, I was fat-fat. But I hid it well, except for when I didn't.

I had been 248 pounds at one point in my life, but I had been 192.5 pounds at one point, too. So while it had been many years since my peak, it had been several since my valley—and how green was Mark-Fisher-Fitnessmy valley! I was just over 213 pounds, and all of the extra weight had crept back on in spite of doing weights with a trainer twice a week ("some of it's probably muscle!!!") and cardio once a week. For years.

I decided to sign up for Mark Fisher's Snatched in Six Weeks because, after a long bout with being marginally in shape, I wanted to get myself closer to the "but you look great!" status my friends had been untruthfully asserting I'd already attained.

The problem, I assumed, was that I am an indefatigable eater with a sweet tooth, and I lead a fairly sedentary life. I'd read that Snatched in Six Weeks was an intense, fat slob-proof way to lose weight and get toned, and I'd seen the transformation of actor Christopher Sieber (on social media) and my friend Josh (in person). How could I not wind up looking better at the end of it?

Christopher-SieberShred: The Musical

It took me longer to get into a class than it might take to get into a pair of size "Twink" jeggings;  Fisher only offers them at set times, then never makes room for latecomers. When he posts the new classes, they fill up immediately. No, I couldn't get any special treatment if I agreed to review it or pay more.

Mark-FisherThere's a winner in you...and there may be some abs buried under that spare tire.

So I waited.

And I finally got in.

And this is my take on the whole journey.

I'm starting Mark Fisher's Snatched in Six Weeks on Tuesday, an intensive regimen that's all about what you're eating and what you're doing. If I like the results, I'll pose my before-and-after pictures. Scary.

Alyssa Milano Shows Who's The Boss Comments (0)

Alyssa-milano-pr-all-starsFat and sassy

Jay-MohrI'm not a big Alyssa Milano fan, but she's lovely. Jay Mohr, a horrendous douchebag and probably the only man Scott Wolf didn't enjoy kissing (in the amazing movie Go), felt the need to poke fun at her weight on the radio, saying it looked as if she'd had a baby and then gave up. "I read it on her gut," he added bluntly.

Milano's response was brilliant, in that it seemed like she was taking the high road...but she was really going off-road to run over the entire Mohr family:

"So sorry you felt the need to publicly fat-shame me. Be well and God Bless. Please send my love to your beautiful wife."

All very nicey-nice, right? Except his "beautiful wife" looks like this.

Boy Culture Turns 8: My 100 Favorite Posts! Comments (0)

BoyCultureBlogYou need a little (Boy) Culture!

StripperIt blows my mind to realize that Boy Culture is now eight years old. I can still remember the joy I felt when I figured out how to post, how to upload an image and how to embed a video. I remember every time a post blew up, bringing in hits and new viewers. I remember the longtime commenters, the trolls, the spam and the never-ending (and validating!) pitches and free tickets and photographers' snaps of half- or all-naked male models. 

RuPaul-Drag-RaceShooting for my blog has never been a drag.

Cone-boyI've used Boy Culture to express myself, to help express others and to connect to people internationally.

I've also used it to show off my humor (both high and low), to flaunt my obsessions, to reality-test my sexual diversions and perversions, to laud the art I love, to lash out against the enemies of gay people and to broadcast my admiration for Madonna.

I want to thank you all for having read this blog over the years. It's a very hard thing to maintain, and it will not be maintained forever. But each time I get some positive (or even just meaningful) feedback, each time my posts are shared on social media, each time something I've written elicits a response, it keeps me going that much longer.

Madonna-stepmother-Joan-MDNAMadonna's stepmother was not impressed.

Thank you. Please enjoy my 100 favorite posts, please let me know if you're reading any old ones for the first time and are liking them and, most of all, please share this entire post far and wide to help get my work out there.

I've gotten way into lists. Way. You'll find more of my lists higher up on, uh, this particular list. But the ones that are just completely random go here because I worked my ass off on them, because I love them and because—judging from Quantcast data—you like 'em, too.
