Total Package?

Collins is quite sexy indeed. Is this what would be considered a total package?

Dominican Men Cheat!

The perception that Dominican men are unfaithful to their wives might be the elephant in the room, but a study by Omnicom Media Group is providing some initial figures into how big the elephant really is.

According to the survey of 2,400 people, 73% of men admitted cheating on their partners while only 26% of women admitted to infidelity. There is a 5% margin of error in the study, one of few on Dominican sexual behavior.

Participants logged onto and filled out a quick questionare, which was then evaluated by Omnicom.

I wish they had considered asking the gender of the person with whom they cheated. It is known that many societies accept this bravado behavior from men as it pertains to affairs, but to have numbers on how many of them cheat with other men would be very insightful.

Turks And Caicos

If you are not into the bright lights and crowds of most destinations that cater to gays you may want to consider Turks and Caicos. The islands offer picturesque views and relaxed attitudes.
There is some gay activity. Providenciales seems to be the hub for gay or gay-friendly activity. There is said to be a Dominican nightclub there with a liberal crowd.
Accomodations are linked here and here.
Attitudes may be conservative in these islands, but homosexuality was decriminalized a few years ago by order of the British government.
Read comments from an insider about being gay in Turks and Caicos.
Carnival is also a great spectacle here.

Final Scene

It was not his intent to be caught up in this media storm, the glamorous life as they call it. We were perfectly content working in the office and climbing the corporate ladder. We were both quite successful by anyones standards. We have a luxury penthouse in Sao Paulo, a vacation bungalow in Curacao, expense accounts, investments. We're doing well.
All seemed innocent enough when he agreed to be photographed by the top erotic magazine in Brazil. It was tastefully done and very little genitalia showing. (No small fete for someone like Iran) But his spread proved to be immensely popular and was called back again, then again. Before we knew it he had done work for several media outlets and had done erotic video as well, solo of course.
Our time together began to dwindle as he tried to maintain his corporate job and handle being a semi-celebrity as well. The problem started when one of the photographers began showing up at our job. He wanted to take Iran to lunch for doing such a great job. He wanted to take Iran to soccer for helping him win an award. He took Iran to Rio for a weekend to promote a new calendar project.
After that weekend Iran behaved strangely. He finally told the photographer had much more than taking pictures on his mind. Turns out he was obsessed with Iran. We have since had to call police numerous times, change our phone numbers and limit our time outside of home.
To make a long story short, he confronted me one day when he came to my office unannounced. Things got pretty loud. By the time the cops came we were literally clutching each others throats as I attempted to avoid the knife he had produced from his camera bag. Iran agreed to retire from modeling and we are currently weighing options to relocate and begin our own design firm. So, this is the last of Iran as most of the world knows him. It's time we focus on one another and become the center of each others universe. The way it used to be.

Wednesday Pic

Update to the story reported on Monaga.
dr1 reports that the 20 year old rapper Jean Luis Valdez Flores indeed has confessed to the murder and has been arrested. He states that he had agreed to have sex with tv personality Miky Breton, 49, for RD $5000. He was to play the role of "the man." However, when the subject of switching roles came up he did not want to do it. A fight broke out and he initially hit the victim knocking him unconscious. He decided to kill the tv personality with a knife he had in his bag after concluding the police nor anyone else would believe his side of the story.
As speculated the gay panic angle, or close to it, is playing out. It will be interesting to see how this turns out since 1) he confessed to agreeing to have sex for money 2) he killed the only witness who could contradict his version of what happened.

Jamaicans Seek Asylum

For weeks, Nathaniel Cunningham and his boyfriend secretly lived together in rural Jamaica. They showed no affection in public and rarely spoke to their neighbors.

Then one morning, Cunningham picked up a local newspaper with a front-page story under the headline, "Homosexual Prostitutes Move into Residential Neighborhood." His address was listed.

For days afterward, Cunningham said an angry mob gathered on his lawn hurling rocks and bricks and calling them "batty boys"- a Jamaican slang term for gay. Eventually, the pair grabbed what they could and fled on foot. Cunningham said neither he nor his boyfriend were prostitutes-the slur was an example of the abuse gay men face in Jamaica.

The story was one of many that Cunningham recently shared with a federal immigration judge in his successful bid to win asylum in the US. And it's similar to other stories cited by asylum seekers who are using US immigration courts to argue that their sexual orientation makes it too dangerous to return home.

Until recently, those grounds have been rarely used. But now immigrant and gay activists say more asylum seekers from Latin America and the caribbean are citing sexual orientation as reasons for seeking asylum.
