It’s just an off the cuff comment. Conversation. Shooting the shit. I’m not writing an article about it, backed by data. I’m getting old; in my fairly long life of debauchery, I’ve known a lot of gay men to use sex toys, and few if any gay men to speak ill of sex toys.

Yet it seems to me that most of my straight male friends are embarrassed and a bit ashamed of things like pocket pussies.

I make no claims outside my own personal experiences. It’s interesting and perhaps cause for examination. I doubt I’ll be the one doing the examining, though, given my level of interest isn’t terribly high.
