Hookups, with John (the return!)

In this episode of Out & About After Dark, John returns to tell his tales. We talk about some of his most memorable meetups and hookups and what it's like as an introvert to try to meet men in the wild. Whether it's a cold meeting in a bar, through a buddy window in a jackoff booth, or via websites and social media, we revisit some of his best and worst as we try to figure out what makes it possible to have a good time in the world of gay hookups.

Excerpt: (beginning about 3:15)

He's standing at the counter, and then he makes an ever so slight nod, like just a jerk of his head toward the bathroom. And I was like, 'Okay, all right.'

So I get up, walk up to the counter, we kind of look at each other, and then I
go in the bathroom. He comes in the bathroom after me. We stand at the urinals for a couple of minutes, do the whole look each other up and down, compare the equipment. Next thing you know, he's on his knees and my dick's buried down his throat in the middle of the bathroom of the McDonalds on Canal Street in New Orleans. Anybody could walk in at any point. And here we are.

Beginning 4:21:

We were in there good five, six minutes or so. We got each other off. And I asked him, "Hey, my hotel's just down the street. Would you like to come back with me, and we
can get naked and do do some more?" And he said, "Nah, man, I
can't... I got to get the food. My girlfriend's waiting in the car outside."

Nurse Practitioner Ari Kravitz

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
