  • Cock-Rings are “Engooorging” San Francisco Nudity Debate

    Never wear a wiener-ring,
    Or cops may get excited.
    You may think it’s no big thing,
    Until you get indicted.

    Nudity’s not viewed as rude,
    If your dong is fully noood,
    But when you bring a wiener-ring,
    you may be misconstrued…or screwed!

    — Ann O’Nymous 2012

    You’ve seen the Naked Guys at Castro & Market in recent months, right? There’s a link to an article about this at the bottom of this post. But this article isn’t just about nudity, it’s about cock-rings. We’ll get back to that in a second.

    Certainly any member of the Boyz in the Woodz Club has got to LOVE that there is no law against nudity in SF, and that the SFPD and the SFDA and SF city residents are tolerant and don’t hassle a guy (or a gal) for walkin’ around in the buff. After all, it certainly eliminates the danger in changing from jeans to jockstrap in an alley, or parading around in buttless chaps, or protesting, demonstrating, or partying in SF in the nude, such as at our periodic SF LGBTIQ street fairs and festivals, and the straighter Bay to Breakers, Critical Mass, and war and Occupy protests.

    1st VS 2nd Amendment

    But I’ve always said that if you push an issue too far, you’re liable to lose a good thing. Just as it’s a bad thing having a select and irresponsible few of my fellow passionate Second Amendment advocates walking around in groups wearing their guns in public places for no other reason than just to PROVE that it IS legal, a select few of my fellow exhibitionists are hangin’ around in SF naked just to PROVE that it’s not ILlegal.

    By the way, I should state for the record that while I have been naked on SF streets from time to time (as shown below), I have NOT chosen to “hang out” naked all afternoon in front of passing crowds just to make a point, nor am I a “flasher”, nor would I ever parade around with an erection. Of course, if I were younger… This may also be partially because the point of THAT display would be that nudity for men over 50 is not as much fun for all as for people who still look good naked, but I digress.

    In both cases I think the activities of these idiots are gonna force the public and the politicians to try to ruin a good thing. Of course, it would be tough to amend the Second Amendment, but it would be a hell of a lot easier for the SF Supervisors to create an ordinance that makes simple nudity illegal in public.

    After all, something that patently IS LEGAL and has been nation-wide for 200+ years is very different from something that has only been noticeably NOT ILLEGAL only in one city and for just a few years. Furthermore, gun ownership is demanded as a Constitutional Right by at least tens of millions of Americans who would die to protect it, while public nudity is only merely tolerated by a few hundred thousand people at best in San Francisco who may well be getting very tired of seeing it on street corners in view of children and tourists.

    It’s a shame that literally a handful of NUTS (pun intended) are about to ruin a very unique freedom for us in The City By (and for) The Gays.

    Anyway, I think the whole issue is pretty much a no-brainer, so I haven’t commented on it up til now, but there is an interesting take on the issue I saw in a recent article, and I felt that you Boyz (including those on our roster who are actually among the NUTS) would be interested in reading about the issue of COCK-RINGS.

    As for me, I would have no problem arguing with a cop in the street, or with a lawyer in a courtroom, that a cock-ring is NOT just a stimulus device, but is actually, more frequently, and more importantly, a form of JEWELRY, self-adornment, and self-expression (such as tattoos and piercings), and should not, therefore, be legislated against in the absence of an erection. Of course, in the PRESENCE of an erection I would say it certainly SHOULD be considered an obvious stimulus tool, and, therefore, should make THAT specific display of nudity NOT tolerable under SF’s current lack of a law against “simple” nudity. It should also be clear to all in such a situation that the ERECTION, and NOT the cock-ring itself OR the nudity, should be considered illegal.

    Here is the article, for your perusal:

  • SF EAGLE to RE-OPEN!

    Accroding to a copywritten article from the SF Chronicle published on SFGate.com on 8/29/12 by Heather Knight (http://blog.sfgate.com/cityinsider/2012/08/29/the-eagle-tavern-to-soar-once-more), the San Francisco EAGLE TAVERN will RE-OPEN soon!

    Alex Montiel and Mike Leon, a couple of gay guys (as opposed to straight investors that had expressed interest earlier, to our community’s joint dismay and dread) will have the place open just as it was, complete with fire-pit patio, cruisy back-bar, AOR DJ, and Sunday Beer Busts for charity!

    Get it straight (no pun intended) from the horse’s mouth at http://www.SF-Eagle.com:

    << It is our pleasure to announce that the Eagle will fly again!

    Your new hosts, Mike and Alex, will reopen the bar as the SF Eagle.

    It will take a couple of months to do the much-needed repairs and upgrades that the property requires, but some upcoming events are already in the works prior to the opening of the bar. Please check this website periodically for new announcements coming soon.

    The bar and patio located at 398 12th Street has long been a special place, not only to the LGBT community, but to the entire community for decades, not to mention the live music community as well. We just couldn’t let such a historic place like this disappear!

    We will continue to host fundraisers for all the organizations from the past, as well as welcoming new ones to make the SF Eagle the pride of our community once again.

    We look forward to seeing all of you very soon!>>

     



  • World’s Largest Penis vs TSA

    http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2012/07/17/man-claims-worlds-largest-penis-got-him-frisked-at-sfo/

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A man famous for having one of the largest penises on record told CBS San Francisco that he was recently frisked by TSA agents at San Francisco International Airport after they suspected he was hiding something in his pants.

    New York native Jonah Falcon, 41 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonah_Falcon), said that he was returning from a weekend in San Francisco on July 9 when he was delayed by TSA agents who became curious about the bulge in his pants.

    “TSA didn’t know what to make of the massive bulge on my thigh. Even after I went through that body scanner that shows you naked,” Falcon wrote on his Twitter page.

    “They asked me if that’s a growth – and i said no, that’s my dick,” he said in a phone interview with CBS SF.

    Falcon said there was no immediate response to his answer from the TSA personnel. “I think they were more embarrased than I was,” he said in the CBS SF interview.

    According to Wikipedia, Falcon’s penis is nearly 10 inches long when flaccid, and more than 13 inches long when erect – making it one of the largest ever recorded.

    On his Facebook page he lists his favorite quote as, “Yes, it really is that big. See, you can fit more than three hands on it.”

    Falcon said he said he was subjected to both a metal detector and a body scanner before being selected for additional screening. He said he was eventually released and allowed to catch his flight.

    “Two hour delay…Fun trip home (sarcasm mode),” he tweeted at the time.

    Falcon has worked as a gaming journalist and actor. He lists several television and film credits, and was featured in a 1999 HBO documentary profiling men with large penises.

    TSA Mistakes ‘World’s Largest Penis’ for Pistol, Happy to See it Isn’t One

    By Neetzan Zimmerman

    World-renowned large-penis-haver Jonah Falcon was reportedly stopped by a TSA agent at San Francisco International Airport and asked about the “very noticeable” bulge in his pants.

    “I said, ‘It’s my dick,'” Falcon told the Huffington Post. “He gave me a pat down but made sure to go around [my penis] with his hands. They even put some powder on my pants, probably a test for explosives. I found it amusing.”

    Falcon, who claims to have the world’s largest recorded penis, says he wasn’t erect at the time, but his 9-inch floppy was apparently suspicious enough to warrant a thorough reach-around. Er, pat-down.

    “I’m just gonna wear bike shorts from now on,” said Falcon, who did not miss his flight on account of his threatening member. “That way, they’ll know. You’d think the San Francisco TSA would have had experience with hung guys before, but I guess not.”

    Meow.

    The OG Thomas Jane, who also happens to be an actor, is not formally recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records for his alleged handful as the official keeper of accomplishments “does not record such feats.”

    Man with World’s largest “knob” caused serious confusion at the airport

    22/07/2012

    A 41 year old man known as Jonah Falcon who is said to have the world’s largest penis was stopped as he went through security at the San Francisco International Airport. The security guards feared he had a suspect package hidden in his pants, immediately stop him for a thorough search.

    Johan was quoted as saying: “I had my stuff strapped to the left. I wasn’t erect at the time. One of the guards asked if my pockets were empty and I said ‘Yes’. I said, ‘It’s my d***’.”

    Instantly the well-endowed 41-year-old was frisked and had white powder sprinkled on his pants to check for traces of explosives after a “very noticeable” bulge in his clothing was interpreted by TSA agents as a potential “biological threat”, the report said.

    The former computer games reviewer has featured in a HBO documentary about the size of his manhood, which measures 23cm limp and 34cm when aroused.
