Following Up on Beefy Latin Stud (BSL)

I wanted to clear the air on my last post.  I certainly was not trying to callous about BLS status.  Our relationship, if you want to call it that, was always casual.  We were fuck buds.  The problem we had was that we tried to make it more than it was.  When we tried that route, things didn't work.  As I've posted before, turning a tick into more ruined our tricking.  We went from being regular buds to being a lot less than that.  I am upset about his situation.  I never expected that he would here.   He never did drugs around me but I knew he did drugs.  I didn't really ask and he didn't really get into it.  It wasn't part of our deal.  What we did have was alot of hot sex.  Even though we fucked a lot, I always remember two specifics times with him.  The first is the time that we were just getting crazy and I reached back and sat on his dick raw.  I never get caught up in the passion of sex and get fucked raw except for this time.  It was hot and I jack off to it all the time.  The other was when we went at it around pride and fucked liked dirty sluts until I shot my load deep in his ass.  I also owe him for all the shit he put up with when my ex and I were breaking up. He gave me a place to just get away from the shit that was going on at home.  I'm grateful for that even though it was also what started our downfall.

If you want to go back and read about him here are a few that I quickly found, two of which cover the moments above.  Enjoy boys because, I am going to beat off thinking about him:

I just found out today that Beefy Latin Stud was arrested for possession of meth.  Not just a small amount but enough that he's looking at some serious time if convicted.  I haven't seen him in a few months but when we get together we always fucked.  I'm worried about him.  He's not going to do well locked up.

Getting fucked bare

Terrelle and I began seeing each other, and by seeing, I mean fucking each other a couple times a week.  He never said anything about having to use a condom while I continued to fuck him raw and blow my load deep in him.  I'm over this one night after work and we are getting into it as usual.  He asks me before we fuck to spend the night.  I told him no and said the real reason is I have a boyfriend.  I've don't but I figured this would take him off the romantic path as I'm not going to date him. I knew this might screw things up too as he was in a long term deal before me and supposedly faithful.  To my shock, he says that's cool and that he figured as much.  We get back to things.  He's eating my ass out and reaches for the condom. I get in position to sit on his dick and after he lubes up my ass and before he puts the condom on, I start down on his dick.  I feel comfortable enough with this guy.   It feels amazing to ride a dick without the rubber.  It hurts less.  While I'm still kinda freaking out about it in my mind, I am more relaxed taking his BBC without the latex.  We got into it pretty good, him fucking me for awhile before we changed positions and I fucked him hard and long until I blew my load deep in him and we rubbed one out on my chest.  Afterward, we talked about the BF situation and he said he wanted me around and wanted more but was willing to wait for me.  I felt bad leaving things that way but if he wants to be exclusive to me knowing that I am not exclusive to him, that's his decision.

The table turned

Terrelle and I met up a few days later.  This time it was made clear that I was coming over for sex and not a date.  I get there and there is definitely a connection.  We nervously talk before I reach over and start kissing him.  The next thing we know we are fumbling toward the bedroom, ripping our clothes off.  As soon we get to the bed, he very aggressively lets me know that he is going to be fucking me again.  He gives me head for a bit, taking in my pre-cum before he starts eating my ass out.  He really does a good job but my ass isn't twitching like it was the other day.  I am not really in the mood to get fucked but he's being so assertive that I am going to give it up again.  I like the confidence and he really puts the effort in to do the job right.  I rode his cock for a bit before he came while I was man-handling his tits and bouncing up and down.  I pull myself off his dick and before he has a chance to do or say anything, I start rubbing my cock against him and I kiss him.  I eventually move his legs up and run my cock against his crack.  I hear it in his moan that I am going to get his ass so I spit and stick my cock in raw.  He gasps in the way you want a guy to gasp after you stick your dick in his hole.  I push forward and start pounding his ass until I blow my load deep inside.  Afterward, we were just chatting there in bed, enjoying our time together.  I told him that I had to go and I could see the disappointment in his face but I made up a lame excuse about having to get home and left with my ass sore and his ass full of cum.

I wanted a hook-up and he wanted a date

I met this guy, Terrelle, he's 26, 6'0 tall, about 175 pound, black guy.  When we first met, he didn't seem too interested but about a week later we texted each other and decided to hang out.  It was definitely somewhere in the ambiguous is this a date or a hook up zone.  I knew what I wanted and it wasn't the date.  I arrived at his place and we were chatting and he asks me about grabbing something to eat or a drink.  I said sure and went over to him and kissed him.  Pretty soon that the food and drink was a distant memory.  I was hard almost immediately and I reached down and felt his rising.  I started undressing him and he suggests we take it in to the bedroom.  We kissed all the way to the bedroom and are pretty hot and bothered by time we get there.  We strip down and hit the bed.  He's a great kisser so we are enjoying things.  Without much hesitation, he starts down my chest and giving me head.  It was nice and I was into it, majorly pre-cumming.  The next thing I know, he pushes my ass up and starts eating me out.  I was squirming left and right and he knew I loved it.  He then tells me to turn over and he eats me out from behind.  He stops, lays on top of me and starts kissing me and grinding his cock along my ass. It's fairly obvious that he wants to fuck me and I'm into it.  He's pushing forward and I tell him not without a condom, so he grabs one.  He tries to fuck me doggy but I am too tight.  It's easier for me to start on top to get it ready to take a dick so we switch up.  I get on top of him and ride him eventually taking his BBC.  It hurts like a mother fucker but I do what I need to and deal with it. Meanwhile, my cock is spraying pre-cum like the faucet that was left with on. He fucks me until I can take it any longer and he beats off cumming all over my chest and me cumming on his.  Afterward it was kinda sweet as we laid there and kissed with our man juice rubbing into each other.  It was starting to get a bit intimate and I told him I needed to shower.  He brings me there and takes a shower with me.  As I'm leaving, I realize I like him but am not so sure about being his bottom boy.  I'm also pretty sure he thought of this as a date so another obstacle to deal with.

A Return Trip to the Bathhouse

On the last day of my business trip, I was completely free and decided to make use of my morning.  I went to the bathhouse again but this time arrived about 4:15, 4:30 in the morning.  It was really different than my first trip because on a weekday morning, there just wasn't a lot of people there. I cruised around, checked out the guys, watching this one guy beat off so hard I thought he was going to rip his dick off.  There was one guy who caught my eye.  He was this tall, dark skinned, athletic black guy.  He was lean and muscular and goodlooking.  Not the type I usually go for as he looked like a professional basketball player.  He was definitely the best available.  I head to the steam room and he followed me in a few seconds later.  He sits down near me and moves his legs apart.  I head over and he lets his towel down.  I get down on my knees and start licking down his hot chest, tasting his skin and sweat before I get to his monster cock.  It was a monster, about 9 inches.  I took in as much as I could and started giving head.  I kept at it for a bit before I stopped and spit on my fingers and started fingering his hot hole.  He was moaning and groaning, loving me sucking his cock and playing with his hole.  He then asked me if I was negative.  I stopped, said yes and went back to work on his dick.  He then moves his ass so it is more accessible and it is clear he wants to fuck.  I line my cock up and spit even though it is wet with pre-cum and sweat.  I push in his tight hole and it feels great.  I am pounding away when I mention I am close and he asks me to pull out.  I go at it until I am right there and I pull out cumming on the ground.  I kneel down and go down on him again until he pulls out and cums on my chest.  I take off from the steam room and shower.  As i am showering, I watch him walk past me and I keep thinking about how hot a lay that way.

My first bathhouse experience

As I said, I was super nervous there.  I couldn't get a room because it was a weekend night, so I took the locker and went on my way.  It's really nerve racking walking around but you get used to it as everyone else is wearing that or less.  I cruised around a few times, nervously checking guys out, wanting to know if they were looking but not wanting to get caught staring too long.  I wasn't interested in just going into some guys room so I headed over to the steam room/sauna area.  I settled up in the sauna as you can see the best plus it felt good getting a good sweat on. Eventually this good looking musclly-beefy guy in his early 30's checks me out and comes over.  I'm not normally into Pacific Islander guys but he was cute and why the fuck not.  We started out slowly, feeling each other up and making out.  A crowd started around us in the sauna and he went down on me and start giving me head.  We went back and forth and it was pretty intense.  My big issue was that I couldn't keep a sustained hard-on.  Part of it was the nerves, the other part the booze I had drank but I wasn't drunk so it was more the nerves.  After a good long while of kissing, swapping head and sweating like animals, he tapped me, smiled and took off.  I didn't know what to do so I went and showered and took a walk around.  I ended up going to a glory hole room.  A bunch of guys below just walked up and suck your dick.  It was hot but not really what I was looking for.  I ended up in the steam room.  I was just standing there taking in the steam and eucalyptus when this middle eastern twink comes up to me.  We move into the corner and start kissing and feeling each other.  He asks me if I want to go to his room.  Fuck yeah.  He's exactly the type I like, about 5'8, 135-140 pounds, early 20's, light skinned color, a nice treasure trail.  In short, he was hot.  We go to the room and we start kissing before he takes off his towel and lies down on the bed.  I take mine off and lay on top of him, kissing from his lips down to his cock.  He's moaning and groaning and it's clear he wants me to eat him out.  I'm a little nervous in the setting because you never know what they were doing before but his cock was fresh smelling so I took the dive.  His ass was amazing.  I was getting off on eating it out even though my cock rubbing against the vinyl bed kinda hurt. I was definitely not having any trouble getting it up.  I moved up and started rubbing my cock against his ass.  I really wanted to fuck him so I spit and started guiding my cock to go into him.  He stopped me and grabbed a rubber, which I reluctantly used. I was really into this kid and fucked him good and long until he came and he asked me to pull out.  I realized he wanted me to take off at that point but I wanted to cum to and he started blowing me.  He asked me not to cum in his mouth so I obliged and blew it in his face with him getting an eyeful.  I grabbed my towel, said thanks, took a quick shower and left.  I didn't really know if this was for me or not but I would probably give it another go before I left town.

Look who is back

Sorry guys.  I know it's been awhile but I am still around.  I need to finish that one off and have lots of stuff I could write about. So stay tuned.

New territory

I went out of town recently for business and decided to really enjoy myself.  I had never been to a bathhouse before and figured it was about time.  I know that we have a couple here but I have never really felt comfortable going to one.  This may sound dumb after all the shit I've done and shared but I was nervous about going.  Part of it is based on a more conservative view of my sexuality, part on coming out in the beat it over your head, safe sex era and the other in that I get nervous in front a group.  Not to mention that I didn't want to run into people that I know or would say something to my ex or one of my previous boys. Fortunately, I remembered a posting from a fellow blogger about being a newbie at a bathhouse and it was helpful to have some advice/pointers.  Here's a link to his site:  The crazy part of the whole experience is how I created so much anxiety about being there that it was hard for me to perform in public.  I'm not sure that I can ever really get over that sense of awkwardness of sex in public place or in large groups of people.  It makes me wonder if I ever decide to go back whether I should get some Cialis or Viagra.  That being said, I'm glad I had a room so I could overcome my nerves...

Would you rather: Butler's coach v VCU's coach

I've been watching the NCAA tournament and these two coaches in the Final 4 have caused me to pop some major wood.  Brad Stevens of Butler has the innocent, dorky (in a hot way) look about him, sort of the boy next door.  Who wouldn't want to corrupt a good Christian boy like him.  I would, in a heart beat.  Plus, I like the pic of him pointing at his crotch.  On the other side is Shaka Smart of Virginia Commonwealth.  Damn, he's a fine piece of ass.  Seriously, I could like him him from head to toe and everywhere in between.  Unfortunately these guys aren't gay but in a fantasy, they are. While I would do both...the questions is do you prefer the all american, squeaky clean look or the sexy, ethnic type.  Tough call.

one more go with the twink

About a month passed and I had texted the new twink a few times about getting together.  He usually responded that he was working, in school, with his girl or otherwise not free.  I pretty much didn't expect to hear from him again until one day out of the blue, I get a text asking me what I'm up to and if I want to come over.  The answer was clearly, yes.  I pretty much dropped everything and headed over to his place.  I get there and we start making out at the door.  He mumbles that we have a couple of hours before his roommates will be home.  We undress each other as we make out and get into the bed.  After some kissing and grinding, I start kissing down his body before I start sucking his dick.  Damn, it's big.  He says it's 8 inches but damn it  looks bigger than that.  And it's so thick.  I go down on his cock, playing with his foreskin for a bit before I throw his legs up and start eating his ass out.  I'm enjoying his tasty boy pussy, grinding my cock into the bed before I have to stop because I'm starting to edge and that is not where I want to cum.  I  move back up and we start kissing again before he moves my cock down toward his hole, pretty much telling me to fuck him now.  I slowly enter him and get his ass ready for my assault.  We've never done it missionary style before and it's hot to be able to kiss him as we fuck.  I feel him getting comfortable and I start thrusting my cock in his hot little hole.  We are getting it on really hot and heavy.  The making out while we fuck seems to be taking him to a different place.  I have to continually stop myself from cumming a gs I want this to last longer. I did too good of a job because I blue balled myself while fucking him.  I realized I was losing my hard on so I pulled my dick out of him and changed positions, with him on top of me.  He starts rubbing his cock into my groin as we kiss.  He eventually starts pushing his cock down by my hole. I let him know it;'s cool to play down there but he can't fuck me as he would rip my ass apart.  In a soft, almost shy voice, he asks if he can stick the head in.  I start laughing and tell him that I'm not a 14 year old girl.  He continues to rub and grind and cums all over me.  In the moment (and quite a brilliant one at that), I take his cum and lube up my dick.  I get behind him and fuck him, pushing his cum deep inside of him.  I'm so turned on by using his cum for lube that I quickly blow my load deep in his ass, mixing my cum with his.  Exhausted, we both fall on the bed and kiss for a bit.  As I'm getting dressed to leave, he matter of factly tells me that was the best fuck he's ever had.  He's all of 19 and a confused mess but my ego is stroked and I love it.  I've texted him since for another go but he has been evasive.  He'll let me know when he wants it again and I'll let you guys know right away too.

I just had to

I couldn't help myself.  I was turned on by it all.  I ended up texting Rob the next day to make sure everything was cool with his girl and of course, get some more ass.  It worked and we arranged a time to meet that day.  I get to his place and we chat about how crazy it was before we get down to playing.  I felt more comfortable with him.  We kissed for a bit and there was some passion before he leaned over me so that I could suck his dick to.  I suck that monster for a bit before moving up to his ass and eating.  Two of favorite things, getting my dick sucked and eating ass.  We went at it for awhile.  His ass tasted good and I wanted him ready to take it this time.  After a bit, I slap him on the ass and tell him to turn around.  He gets in the doggy position, I pull his light caramel ass towards me, lube up my cock and then spit on his sweet pink hole before I stick my big head in. As I put my cock in, his head rocks and his crazy hair is flying all over the place.  I go in slowly as he moans and let it build up until he is ready for it harder.  And when he is, I start pounding his ass.  He's going crazy and he tells me that he's getting close.  Then I felt his ass contract and he came into his hand as I continued to pound away.  I told him to "eat that cum" and he followed my order and starts licking up his cum from his palm.  That drove me over the edge and I let loose a big load in his ass.  This time, it was all in. We talked for a bit as I cleaned up.  We left it open ended but it was way better this time around. And the deviant in both of knew exactly why.

The drama with the new twink

A few days after I fuck Rob, worlds collide.  In the only way they can and should, awkwardly.  My best friend's dad died somewhat suddenly and being a good friend, I go to the wake to support him.  My ex and I go together and have a bunch of friends there as well.  My friend's dad was a bit of a player player and had several kids with a few women, so I am meeting a bunch of his step-brothers and sisters that I have never met before. Eventually, I meet his half-sister Katie and her boyfriend Rob.  I almost shit in my pants.  It was obvious we knew each other and his sister as well as my friend are wondering how.  He works at a Starbucks and tells them that I am a regular customer.  It's a brilliant lie and I go along with it.  We spent the rest of the night pretending not to be looking at each other.  I know this was wrong, but I wanted him right there.  It was hard to focus and be respectful when you are sitting there popping wood thinking about fucking your best friends sister's man at their father's funeral.  So I played it cool and so did he.  I saw him checking me out a few times and he did the same.  I was so horned up thinking about him I actually put some moves on my ex to try and get off (not a good idea)...I thought about texting him but held back.  But I loved it.  I was so turned on by how deceitful and wrong this was.

A new twink

This is a really strange hook-up series even for me.  I met this kid, Rob online. He's cute, 19, about 6 foot, 150-155 pounds, latin, white and maybe a bit of black in him.  He looks French, kinda like Joakim Noah, the basketball player, but less dorky. We meet up and I am definitely into him.  We start playing around and things are okay but kinda weird.  He's blowing me pretty good and I tell him to sit on it.  He looks up at me and says bareback? And while I wasn't sure what he was up to, I just moan and he sits on my dick.  He's having a hard time taking the dick, his ass is super tight.  But he keeps going at it, taking the dick but it's a struggle.  After about ten minutes of watching him squirm I tell him to move.  I go behind him and start kissing his neck before I push him down and fuck him hard from behind.  Before he was struggling to take it, now he has no option.  I know he's having a hard time but at this point, I'm not too concerned.  As I'm getting ready to cum, I start to move out of him but not totally so I cum part in him and part on his hole, leaving him a sloppy mess.  I have to say I loved watching my cum dripping all over him especially since he didn't plan on getting fucked, especially bare. As I left, I was hoping this kid wouldn't contact me again because it was ok but sometimes you just let it be. Then, unexpectedly, and not at a good time or place....he shows up out of nowhere. To be continued....for the drama...

P.S.  I couldn't find a really good pic of a guy that looked like him but he's sort of a cross between the two but with a big, fat, 8 inch uncut cock.

How "real" is it, Dustin aka Spencer

This has been out there for a bit but with the new season airing, the past of this character has come into play.  For those of you that don't know, the Real World season 25 recently kicked off.  Not big news, no one really cares about this show anymore as it was once relevant and ground breaking but now, not so much.  This season, a little hottie named Dustin appears.  Dustin has a past and he's not exactly hiding it.  Dustin was a on a gay for pay porn site, where he was pretty much naked all the time.  The stuff you see on the site is tame, lots of nakedness, dumb ramblings, jacking off, every once in awhile, playing with his ass, a duo and some jerking etc.  You don't see anything too crazy but it is reported that he blew some dude and he fucked, got fucked etc.  What I find so interesting is that MTV knew about this and basically used it as a ratings tease.  There's not a gay character but a gay for pay with the buzz it creates, free publicity and probably better ratings.  Hell, I watched that stupid show and checked that hot piece of ass out on too.  fratpad is not the best site but it has a place and I did jack off to it so I can't really say too many bad things about it.   Judge for yourself, and FYI, will have a new post up this weekend.  Keep a look out boys.

Skinny top guy

I was chatting with this guy and his look and attitude turned me on.  As you guys know, I am not much of a bottom.  When it comes to me bottoming, I really need to be in the mood and want it.  So this guy is 5'10, 140, in really good shape, smooth, a good sized dick with a nice thick bush.  He was the type of guy that I would think about bottoming with.  We exchanged phone numbers and spoke.  I can't explain why I felt this way but after talking with him, I knew that he how to fuck.  I decided to go for it.  We met up a few days later and he was skinnier than I thought but still sexy.  We met up in his office and it became clear that we weren't going to fuck because he didn't have the supplies.  We kiss and are feeling each other.  We start to take off our clothes, shirts first then our pants.  We are completely naked in his conference room.  We alternate what we are doing.  Sometimes we kiss, sometimes, we rub our cocks together, other times we jack our cocks off or each others.  He wants to fuck me but I make it clear that he can't.  I ask him if he wants to eat my ass out and he says yes.  He pushes me down on this counter and attacks my ass with his tongue.  Damn, he's good at it. I don't think he's going to come up for air.  He really wants my ass and comments that he can tell its tight.  I tell him it's okay to stick a finger in and he does and is shocked at how tight it is.  I tease him and ask him if he wants my cherry.  He's all worked up and finally says, dude, your going to make me cum if you keep this up.  I ask him to eat my ass out some more and he back in there tonguing my pink hole.  He then stands up and starts kissing the back of my neck, rubbing his cock under me, hitting my ball sack.  He finally goes over to the counter and lets loose a huge load.  I watch it and the beauty of a thick drop hanging from the slit.  It's so sexy to see it.  I beat off and blow my load all over the counter too.  He hugs me, grabbing my ass and says, next time, I want to feel your tight ass.  Well, you can't really count on me bottoming, so you definitely have to strike while the iron's hot.  Only time will tell.

I received the following comment and just want to add to it:

Come on man. Don't threaten us with a come back, and then not cum back!! Pleeeeeeeaze?? Anonymous-  As I said before, I am back but don't expect daily updates.  There is not going to be any rhyme or reason.  When I have the urge to write, I will.  That may mean you get 3 in a short period of time and then go without for two weeks.  I don't know and I won't commit to anything more than being true to myself. That being said.  Be on the lookout during the lunch hour (I'll try to post by 12:15) tomorrow for a new post

The muscle jock

I teased you w ith the muscle jock and need to follow through.  We exchanged emails and decided to meet up at my office for nooner.  Since they cut back on the working from home, it's been harder to pull off office stuff.  I have somebody around every day.  Except for this week and I took advantage.  We emailed each other and he was eager with a super hot body.  But based on the body alone, he was worth doing.  He was all things good, in shape, big dicked and liked to kiss.  The first time we met, we made out like bandit and he blew me.  The idea of this hot black big dicked stud swallowing my cum was too hot.  I had to have more.  So I invited him over again two days later and let him know that I normally couldn't host but was able to and wanted him again.  He gets over he and gets naked ASAP, revealing his super muscled up body and big dick.  We kiss for a bit before he goes down on me and gets me hard.  After a bit of sucking he gets up and starts kissing me before he conveniently ends up with his back to me and my cock rubbing up against his ass.  Not need an invitation, I spit on my cock for lube and starting digging into his hungry hole.  He doesn't object and I push him down for easier access.  I thrust in and he moans.  As he gets used to my cock, I push him down because he keeps arching back.  I have him down and begging for my cock. I keep thrusting in his dark hole, grabbing his muscle tits and tight abs as I pound away on his fit, tight body.  I keep aggressively pushing him down as I continue to grind deep in him, eventually blowing my load deep inside.  Afterward, he kisses me and tells me that he wishes I could do this more often.  If I can make this work after 5:00 pm, I will seed this slut again.

An odd thought while I was getting blown

I met up last night with this 25 year old Mexican twink for some oral.  He's 5'7, 140 pounds and medium complexion.  He asks me if I want to watch some porn and he puts something on but I never actually watched it.  He say to me anytime you want to start.  I start undoing my pants and gets this excited look on his face.  I decide that I want to take the action to him and fuck his mouth instead of lying back and letting him do the work.  So I get off the couch and undo my pants and let it all go down to my boots.  He goes in and inhales my cock.  I start pumping his face full of my cock.  He did okay considering I pretty much just skull fucked him for about 20 minutes.  He was a little toothy on the blow job but I did force the issue when he would try to take a little break, I would jam it back down his throat.  As I was getting ready to cum, I made sure my cock was deep down his throat so he wouldn't waste it. I didn't ask and he didn't object.  But right after I came, I started thinking about how eager this 25 year old was swallow my cum and how different it was when I was his age.  Back in the mid 90's when I turned 25, I didn't know anyone that swallowed.  It wasn't until much later that I had someone swallow.  And I remember it like it was yesterday.  It turned me on so much.  I think it might have something to do with the era in which I came out and the safe sex message that was drilled in everyone's head.  It seems like guys are much more at ease with it now.  While you can call me a hipocrit because I want to shoot my load inside whether it's a mouth or an ass, but I don't let a guy cum in my mouth and on the rare occasion that I bottom, I use condoms.  I thought it was a strange thought to have as a dude is slurping the last of your nut out.
