Now that we've officially dubbed 2014 “The Year of the Daddy,” we hope you’re on your way to achieving the goals (don’t call them resolutions!) you’ve set for yourself to help make the next 365 days as daddylicious as they can be. Not that it’s going to be easy. Truth is, some of the biggest self-improvement promises we make to ourselves—eating better, getting in shape, building healthier relationships—are way easier said than done. But hang in there, guys, we’re gonna do our best to help you stay on track!

Okay, we can’t promise to snatch that donut out of your hand or make sure you get your butt to the gym three times a week, but if you need some advice on keeping your love life in tip-top shape, listen up! Better yet, listen to what MISTER CEO and our resident relationship expert, Carl Sandler, had to say about some of the unique challenges of daddy dating—including mismatched sex drives, uneven incomes, and dealing with disapproving family and friends—during his latest appearance on Sirius OutQ’s “The Morning Jolt with Larry Flick” radio show. Whether you’re determined to land yourself a dashing daddy, test the relationship waters with a strapping younger buck, or make your current daddy-son situation stronger in 2014, this is a must-listen.

Gay Republicans: When Is Outing Okay?

It's been a high profile week in outing. From Super Bowl Champ Aaron Rodgers to two (or more) alleged Hobbit stars, people seem to be breaking down closet doors that are not their own. And while it would be nice to add NFL players and a few more actors to the team roster, there's one outing in question that our community could do with out: the gay republican hypocrite. In this particular case, it's Republican Congressman Aaron Shock, who's been outed this week by noted CBS journalist Itay Hod. In a not-so-blind item on his Facebook page, he poses the question of when it's right to out someone. Citing Shock's disgraceful anti-gay voting history, he sees fit to call this gay man out for all the world to see. And I agree with Hod - if you discreetly come to our community looking for "our services" and then turn around and openly plot against us, you need to be brought down. That kind of hypocrisy should be out in the open.

There's a lot at stake when you're a public figure. In many cases, your livelihood depends on little more than your image and how the public perceives you. I would love for every closeted man to come out (public or otherwise) but understand...

2014 The Year of the Daddy

Resolutions come and go, but tag lines they stay with you. That's why this year, instead of making a list of things we want to change, why not create a year long thematic that will propel you through the year and keep you on track. For example, I deemed 2013 as "The Year of Change" for me on January 1, 2013. And in the span of a year the universe delivered, and then some. From moving, to getting a new job, to incredible new adventures, it was a year filled with all kinds of change - even when I wasn't actively seeking it. I not only learned the value in taking charge of my life and creating change for myself, but the beauty of accepting the things I cannot change. Because of that, 2013 was a great success. But 2014 is here, which means a new theme for a new year.

I find it easier to use this broader thematic to start with and make sure that all your actions line up to it. Whether that's creating a list of goals (not resolutions) or just checking your actions against the theme, it's an easy way to stay on track for the year and help manifest your own year long destiny.

So with that, I say to all of you out there, let's make 2014 The Year of the Daddy. I want you all to have the best year of your life and make 2014 a year to remember. Let us know in the comments below what your year long thematic will be and what you want to accomplish. Having it in writing will not only hold you accountable, but there's a surprising power in written words that tend to have magic all on their own.

Looking forward to an incredible and unforgettably blissful 2014...

Read Any Good Books Lately?

If you've got some time off this holiday season, why not pick up a good book or two and get with the reading? Sure you could do some binge-watching on Netflix, but let's all take a page from these sexy fellas over Sexy Men Read and A Naked Bookself and try and look as good as they do while doing it. Queerty called these great Tumblr sites which collect all kinds of photos of gifs of men reading (the latter site is a bit more NSFW) and we can't get enough of them. There's something to be said about a man with a book in his hand. And best of all, it can often times set the stage for some great and engaging conversations. No pick up line needed, just hope that you're familiar with their book. That's one of the unfortunate things about reading off a kindle or iPad: while convenient, there's no cover.

And now that many of the Best of Lists of the year are being released, you'll have plenty to be inspired by. As always, we love hearing recommendations from the community, so new or old, let us know what we should be reading in the comments below.

A few weeks ago, we had some fun telling you about a few of our favorite Gay Daddy-Son Relationships That Shocked the World. All this talk about Tom Daley and Justin Lance Black pairing up made us want to highlight three inspiring cross-generational couples who prove that when it comes to May-December loving, age ain't nothing but a number.

Christopher Isherwood 
and Don Bachardy
Life wasn’t always a cabaret for esteemed British novelist Christopher Isherwood, whose semi-autobiographical tales of a closeted gay man living in pre-Nazi Germany were collected in the best-selling book The Berlin Stories, but that all changed when he met 18-year-old Don Bachardy on a Santa Monica beach in 1952. Despite their 30-year age difference—not to mention it being the era of McCarthyism, one of the most homophobic periods in American history—the pair began a high-profile love affair that would last more than three decades. While their relationship was idyllic in many ways, with Isherwood helping his younger lover develop his affinity for drawing and painting and the couple frequently entertaining well-known artists, writers, and movie stars in their hillside Santa Monica home, it wasn’t always without its challenges. In fact, at times the May-December dramas may have seemed like something out of a movie, and indeed, it became one—“Chris & Don: A...

When super hottie Olympic diver Tom Daley announced he was dating a dude, it only took about a day or two for reporters to discover that the dude in question was Oscar winning writer Dustin Lance Black. After the initial shock and delight wore off, many people turned to the fact that Tom, 19, was dating someone 20 years his senior. Maybe it's because public outings are more mainstream these days, but there seemed to be an unfavorable reaction to the age gap. I call out the mainstream factor because amongst the gay community most men understand that age differences in our world are fairly common and mostly accepted. We've discussed at length on this blog the uniting bonds of coming out and being a minority which can oftentimes grant a strong foundation for older-young relationships, but it seems that there's still a bit of taboo when it comes to May-December romances. I'd venture to say many of those negative reactions stem from jealously that Tom Daley can't be theirs, but it does bring up an interesting topic regarding the mainstreaming of gay culture.

The Huffington Post is on the same page as us, but I'm wondering: outside of the gay community (or in) have you experienced negative reactions to dating...

In the new movie Last Vegas, Robert DeNiro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Kline prove that having a blast in that rollicking, high-rolling town isn’t just a young man’s game. In fact, we enjoyed watching those four silver-screen silver foxes celebrating in Sin City so much that it got our devilish daddy selves itching to book our own trip. But what’s a daddy to do in the 702? Turns out plenty! Here’s just a few daddy-approved points of interest we’re adding to our itinerary.

Leave those overcrowded hotels on the strip behind and feel at home at Blue Moon Resort! This three-floor, all-gay destination boasts modern accommodations and plenty of great amenities, including a lagoon-style pool, multiple sundecks, a private Jacuzzi grotto, complimentary breakfast, free WiFi, and more. No wonder it’s received a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor the last two years running and been voted the best place in Vegas for gay men to hang out. Owner John Hessling also deals out a number of special events throughout the year, including the Las Vegas Gay Sports Festival (January), Big Horn Rodeo (May), Lucky Bear Weekend (September), and their popular weekly Boys and Burgers party (Sundays, April through October).

Sure, the abundance of all-you-can-eat establishments might be one of LV’s biggest attractions, but if you’re a true foodie, step away from the buffet and book a reservation at...

Introducing Hula: Making STI Testing Easier

Yesterday was World AIDS Day and, in commemoration, we’re announcing a partnership with Hula, a free mobile app (available only in the U.S., for now) that can help you take control of your sexual health and keep HIV prevention and awareness going strong all year round.

So what’s Hula? In our opinion, it’s a game changer when it comes to taking the hassle and stress out of STI testing. If you’ve been tested in the past, you know it can be a tedious experience at best and a terrifying one at worst. Hula makes the whole thing a lot less painful by giving you the information you need to decide which centers and services are right for you. Want to know which testing centers receive the best ratings and reviews from actual patients? Or which have the most up-to-date testing methods? Hula gives you all this info and more, right at your fingertips. Users can also choose to have their results sent straight to their phone, which not only saves you time but also provides you with a convenient digital record of your results that you can share with others.

We know that there are many places online to find testing locations, but we think the ease with you can do it on Hula makes a difference. With a recent study showing that as many as 1 in 10 guys using a gay app has never had an HIV test, new ways to access to this information is still really important.
