    Someone gave me Gold Membership status a while ago. Thank you mystery person! Anyway, this has enabled me to look at the gallery. It's gotten to the point where I can tell the straight men from the gay men pretty well by just looking a one picture. I'm sure there are exceptions, but for the most part it seems that straight guys tend to take pictures of their erections -- only. Also, the straight men tend to focus on the "archetectural" aspect of the erection, as though they are taking a picture of a structure, a building, etc.

    With gay men, it seems they are more likely to take pictures of full body and the pictures are more sensual. The penis is incorporated into the overall experience of having a male body, etc.

    Pretty funny. But I just realized (hadn't realized this when I started writing this out) but I fit right in with the straight guys. All erection photos, close-up with virtually no indication of sensuality, lol. :biggrin1:

    ADDENDUM:
    I never meant to imply that one orientation or style of photography is better than another. If anything, the underlying issue I was actually sort of hinting at (and it's something I admire about gay men, generally) is that gay men tend to be more in touch with their sensuality than straight men. This is actually something I've read in sex manuals: one complaint women sometimes have about men is that they focus mostly on genital pleasure as opposed to full body pleasure and sensuality.

    So speaks the gay man with the facial pictures of himself and pictures of his flaccid penis.... At any rate, I said there are always exceptions. This is just a general observation. What a rude response!

    So speaks the straight man with a gallery consisting almost entirely of close-ups of his erection! :rolleyes:

    At any rate, it looks like this thread is off to a nightmarish start. Apparently I've hit a sore nerve here, and so I will be signing off. Y'all can fall all over yourselves if you want. I was just making a simple observation with no judgment attached. I never meant to imply that one style is better than another or that one orientation is better than another. I sometimes forget how insecure some people can be on this topic. BYE! :sad6:

    Absolutely baffling. :confused:

    And your prowess with women in what way impacts the topic of this thread? You identify yourself as mostly "gay" and your gallery demonstrates exactly what I said.

    And my avatar and the real Henry Miller's sex life impacts this topic in what way? All of my actual pictures of myself in my gallery are close-ups of my erection.

    I never said that straight men are better than gay men. This is apparently what you have read into this topic, and that is your fuckin' problem. If anything, the underlying issue I was actually sort of hinting at (and it's something I admire about gay men, generally) is that gay men tend to be more in touch with their sensuality than straight men. This is actually something I've read in sex manuals: one complaint women sometimes have about men is that they focus mostly on genital pleasure as opposed to full body pleasure and sensuality.

    Yeah. Like I had thought. This apparently brought in the issues about homophobia, which I had not intended. If you have issues, that's your own problem. Not mine. Seek help. BYE!

    I kinda agree with the OP. Also gay and bi guys almost always include a shot of their butt where they are bending over so you can see the actual asshole. Even if a straight guy lets his gf massage his prostrate he doesnt ben over and show his hairy crack.:tongue:

    I particularly hate the disembodied dick shot. Which is inevitably of a straight man.

    oh, mr. miller you win.

    you are so educated and open minded in your stereotyping of us all.
    oh, and btw, "architectural" is how it's spelled.

    putting face pics and pics while flaccid in your gallery will determine if you are gay by mr. miller's observation. so put up a famous "homophobe" writer's face pic if you want to be perceived as straight. oh, and make sure your all your lpsg
    friends are straight too, or at least not more than 50% gay.

    I agree with Mr. Miller... BTW offroad, he didnt said that ALL straight guys put only close ups of their cock's or that gays doesnt do it... he said GENERALLY.

    And ofc it doesnt determine the sexual orientation of someone... -.-

    How anyone can get offended by the OP is beyond baffling.
