Captain’s Log 29.12.09
Captain’s log is a periodic message to Mothership’s logged in members which is copied into the Mothership Blog
We’ve just created two new categories in the Mothership Gay Forums - Club 18-35 General and Club 18-35 Sex
The idea is to provide an area where our younger members can hang out when they would rather have the company of guys around their own age. Mothership’s age demographic has drifted upwards recently and of course there is nothing wrong with this, except that a gay dating site does need younger members to keep a buzz. Also, more younger members attract more guys of all ages, so ultimately everyone wins. Read the rest of this entry

But I especially notice it in gay men. Read the rest of this entry

Paedophilia is an issue whose social aspect today is as feared as the mythical snake-haired Medusa, with the same ability to turn reason and compassion to stone. It is overwhelmingly a heterosexual problem, though sometimes seen by the ill-informed as a gay one. Having said that, LGBT people may profitably reflect on the matter from their own special vantage point.
A little research shows how neglected the subject has been, relegated even in academic psychiatric publications to brief chapters, thus suggesting fears even on the part of the medical profession of being seen to take undue interest in a highly taboo topic. Read the rest of this entry

Join us for Christmas drinks on Saturday 12th December?
Christmas drinks with Mothership Gay Dating
This Saturday 12 December come and meet your fellow Mothership Gay Dating crew members at the Two Brewers in Clapham from 9.30pm!
The Two Brewers is a busy gay venue with both two bars (a cabaret and a club bar), with live cabaret and best of all entry is free until 10pm - after that you’ll pay £5 so don’t be late!
It is easy to find on Clapham High Street and just a short walk from the nearest tube is Clapham Common, see map.
Our last Mothership Gay Dating meet in Blackpool was a huge hit, and our forums are buzzing with our hot members looking forward to getting together in real life.
The cabaret this Saturday is the acclaimed Kandi Kane. Don’t forget, make sure you arrive before 10pm to avoid the £5 entry fee.
I hope you can come along and meet your friendly Mothership cyber friends in real life, and look forward to seeing you there! We’ll provide photos and details of how it went (plus the evening’s gossip!) in a future blog.
If you can’t make it, you can check out the guys on Mothership Gay Dating here!
All the best
