A Prince Albert with a ring
The Prince Albert is the most commonly known genital piercing. It is a single piercing in the underside of the penis from where the shaft meets the glans through to the urethra inside the penis. Then an item of jewellery is inserted into the urethra so that it enters through the pierced hole and comes out through the ‘eye’ at the end of the penis. The jewellery is normally a curved barbell, a captive bead ring, a circular barbell or a prince’s wand.
The Prince Albert can enhance sexual pleasure for the wearer, as well as the recipient as the beads on the jewellery can stimulate the anus and prostate. Read the rest of this entry

Acceptance of being gay is important to our happiness
Gay people have not always felt well served by the pioneering psychology of Carl Gustav Jung ( 1875- 1961 ) who came to take a radically different path to the psychoanalysis of Sigmund Freud, which embraced the wider realm of faith and religion, alchemy and mysticism. He viewed the goal of life with the insights of his system of analytical psychology as a process of individuation towards wholeness.
From a Jungian perspective, it is essential to have the courage to fully accept ourselves as gay individuals, so coming out properly is a most important step towards wholeness. Jung’s approach to homosexuality was one of social acceptance and tolerance: being gay did not in any way devalue anyone as a member of society, and he was against any laws being passed against it. He also recognised that homoseuality was a part of all times and cultures worldwide. Read the rest of this entry

A gay new world at every stage of our lives
To be young was once highly prized on the gay scene, but a whole generation has reached maturity since the first performance of the musical ‘Hair’ announced the dawn of a new age of peace, love, and beneficent social revolution. By 2017 in the UK, there will be more of us over 65 than children under 5, for the first time. Where is the gay population heading with its wealth of accumulated experience, and how can we get the best out of this braver, newer society? Read the rest of this entry

As a gay man I’ve held a long fascination and attachment to James Hilton’s novel Lost Horizon (first published in 1933), and I want to examine its deeper meaning for me (and for us as gay people), apart from any literary merit it may possess. The book has enjoyed huge popularity over the years, boosted by major film adaptations, but, as far as I know, no one has looked at it in this way until now. Read the rest of this entry

What really makes gay people happy? The coalition goverment has proposed a happiness index, which will assess the general psychological wellbeing of the country. Defining happiness is a very complicated exercise, however, and I’d like to think for a moment about what really makes us as gay people happy.
When Terry Sanderson’s book, How To Be A Happy Homosexual was published in 1986 , it dealt with practical matters and gave encouragement to those feeling oppressed. With the relative liberation past decades have brought us and increased self-belief, it’s useful to look at what makes us happiest now. Read the rest of this entry
