A Tumblr Blog “Rescue Plan”

MP_'BateStation1Fellas, if you haven’t already, below is a screenshot from Twitter showing a Tumblr blog “rescue plan” for those of us whose Tumblr blog(s) has adult content that’s now forbidden at Tumblr. (Right-click on image below to open and enlarge in new tab/window.)
I’m going to try this out. I just registered at https://2mblr.com, and have authorized them to connect my Tumblr blog Male Oriented Erotica & Perspectives blog (MOEP) to migrate MOEP’s data to this site. MOEP’s new URL is now https://2mblr.com/male-oep.

rescueplan (of Tumblr blog)- Twitter page

Since there is neither anything personal nor sensitive about me on MOEP, I didn’t mind giving 2mblr read and write access to MOEP for the purpose of initiating the transfer.Tumblr to 2mblr (pt1 of 2)

Tumblr to 2mblr (pt2 of 2)The screenshot photo below shows that my blog, MOEP (male-oep) has been transferred to 2mblr. I see some of my content posted there but as of yet don’t see how I can post new content. Also, there isn’t yet a blog archive (a feature I especially liked and found exceptionally useful on Tumblr.) Without the archive, I’m not yet sure if all of MOEP’s content has been transferred. I supposed the people at 2mblr.com are working on that for all the blogs they’ve transferred. I’ll check back in January 2019.
** NOTE: I did not delete my blog at Tumblr. In fact, 2mblr tells its users exactly not to do that (yet).

rescueplan (of Tumblr blog)- website pageANYWAY…
If you have a Twitter account (and you should have one so that you can follow me there; it’s @Renzo57Mp), then visit the Twitter page I circled in the screenshot at the top of this article and read up on what you need to do to transfer your Tumblr data. I also advise reading previous tweets at @rescueplan Twitter page which may answer some of your questions. (Right-click on image to open and enlarge in new tab/window.)

A FINAL THOUGHT & DISCLAIMER: I cannot yet say whether this particular migration to 2mblr will be suitable and efficient (and personally satisfactory) for my blog, MOEP nor whether it will be that way for any other Tumblr blogs already transferred. As I stated earlier, I’m simply trying out this “rescue plan” option. I know from reading the tweets that the staff at 2mblr.com are still at work making improvements to the network – some of which are planned for completion by mid-to-late January 2019. I’m patient because there are other sites I can visit for ‘batespiration (masturbation inspiration). I also intend to concentrate much of my blog hobby time to posting content on this blog, Masculine Perspectives and posting content on my other blog, Real Time.

Good luck!

Male Masturbation: Appreciating Both Hands

**NOTE** This is the first in a new and continuous Masculine Perspectives blog series on male masturbation.

ct_dick under hands

[Dick Spit No. 2018-04] I am right-handed. That means that most personally intimate things are done using with my right hand rather than my left. When I want to pleasure myself, I use either my left or my right hand as needed, depending on what I want or have to do. However when masturbating (aka jacking off or jerking off), I always use my right hand. (Keep reading; I break all of this down later.)

Due to having carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) issues for the past several days, I’ve had to wear a damn hand & wrist orthosis (aka a support brace). Of course, wearing that thing hindered my ability to jack off with my right hand. (Mind you, I never wear the orthosis when I have to take a shit. I’m just glad the CTS doesn’t flare up when it’s time for me to wipe my ass! LOL!😊)

Typing anything on my laptop while wearing the orthosis had become quite a tiresome chore so I rarely did any of that, seeing that whenever I draft a blog article or leave a post or comment on social media sites like Facebook, I tend to write more than just a few words. When I drafted the article you’re now reading, I thought that if I typed with the orthosis off my hand – even for just a few minutes at a time, I wouldn’t have any wrist pain. Nope; I was wrong. Renzo's Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) IssueWithin minutes of typing without the orthosis, my wrist starting tingling again. If you’ve never had carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), try to imagine being stung by several sharp needles hitting your skin in the same area, in rapid succession, several hundred times at the same time. It’s like the nerves in your wrist are being compressed or pinched. Another way to understand the CTS pain, is the pain you might remember feeling if you’ve ever been stung either by a bee (or worse) by a hornet (the sting of the latter insect I know all about because it happened to me – and that sting hurt like a bitch!) Anyway, those two instances are probably the best ways I know to describe the feeling of CTS. Click here to read more about carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS).

Like most dudes who masturbate, I grip my dry or pre-cum or lube-covered erect penis/dick/cock with my entire right hand, not just with my fingers. In fact, I don’t know any guys who jack off with just a couple of fingers, though I’m sure they’re out there somewhere. I respect the fact that every dude has a masturbation method that is ideal, and which happens to work for him. I don’t judge but I’d never let a guy jack me off with just a couple of fingers. Uh-uh. Nope. Fuck that. I’m gonna need a guy to grip my hard dick just firmly enough (not to hurt me) with his whole hand and show my schlong some interest and love!

Over the near fifty (50!) years that I’ve been masturbating – which I suppose would make me a “master masturbator” 😄 (and it will indeed be fifty years come 2019, seeing how I started jacking off when I was nine years old), occasionally I’ve done some left-handed masturbating. Using the left-hand method, I’ve rarely jacked off long enough to reach…uh, completion(“Completion” means that I didn’t jack off to the point of semen ejaculation and/or orgasm.) When my circumcised penis is erect/hard, it curves a bit up and to the left, making masturbating with my left hand not necessarily uncomfortable but somewhat difficult to do with pleasure, regardless of how I’m holding my dick. Naked twink reading gay fictionThus, the left-hand jack off method is something I rarely do. Whether I’m flipping through the internet/web, through a pornographic magazine, or reading some sexually erotic story in a book – all while using with my right hand, my left hand is rubbing my dick; getting it to grow from a “chub” (semi-erect/hard) to a “rod” (full erection) – and catching pre-cum in the process (which I always either eat or, if I’m using lube, smear it on the head and shaft of my dick, and/or I’ll smear it on my nipples). I’d do this until I was ready to let my right hand take over the jacking job.

(S/N: I just had a thought of how much I appreciate writing all this to guys who can relate and not to women. I doubt few women would or could understand, much less appreciate this article, and certainly none of them would be able to relate because, duh…they don’t have a penis! LOL! 😆)

Since I always masturbate with my right handmy left hand has other very important sexy jobs to do during my jack-off sessions, some if not all of which some male readers might be able to relate to since they do these things themselves. (S/N: In every jack session I am, and prefer to be, completely naked.) In no particular order, here’s what I use my left hand for, especially while my right hand is slick with precum or lube and massaging my hard cock. (An article about some of the products I like to use for jack-off lube is forthcoming.):

  • If I’m watching porn on my laptop computer, my left hand is used to move the computer mouse or type on the keyboard to click or flip though websites or webpages;
  • whether I’m looking at porn sites on my laptop computer – which I keep on my desk – my desk also serves as my masturbation stationam just lying in bed, or sitting on the floor, my left hand is used to …
  • cup and/or fondle my hairy balls;Renzo's lifelike 7inch dildo
  • rub my inner thigh areas to get some of my ball sack musk for me to sniff;
  • massage my taint (the perineum);
  • massage or finger-fuck my butt hole;
  • insert (in my ass) my penis-sharped dildo (or whatever other phallic-shaped object I’ve got lying around and want to use) and piston-fuck myself – either slow or fast, depending on how horny I am or have become after edging for a long time;
  • massage or pinch my nipples (after I’ve first licked the index finger and thumb of that handand, with the fingers of my left hand …
  • carry the sweet precum that’s been oozing from my dick (usually while edging), to either smear on my hard nipples, lips, or feed into my mouth.

As you can see fellas, I shamelessly like talking about how I make my masturbation sessions sensuous and sexy! And why the fuck shouldn’t I talk about how I give myself (and/or another dude) such deserving, sensuous, physical, and sexual pleasure?Flyin' Solo-38 Masturbation is natural. It is also a very safe, healthy, fun, and pleasurable act of being human. Life is too short for a man not to have an orgasm whenever and as often as he can or want to have. This is true regardless of whether that man has or doesn’t have a steady or occasional partner with whom he can have sex. And, while that man is on the way to giving himself (and/or his partner) that orgasm, there’s no reason for him not to build for himself (and/or his male partner) an intense, longer-lasting orgasm.

Finally, rarely do I ever do what I like to call, the jack off quickie. I prefer to save such quickies for when I’m exceptionally horny and happened to be someplace (like at my job for instance) where I can’t leave anytime soon or can’t get naked to masturbate. In such instances, I might wait until I get home to “take care of business“, or I’d go to either one of the following places to jack off:
– the men’s restroom (choosing the last or next to the last stall – if it’s clean) or to a unisex restroom (which is best because you can lock the door behind you);
– a storage room, maintenance closet, or ante-room;
– an empty, seldom used office or room;
or better yet (because there’s a better degree of privacy)
     – to my car – if parked nearby, if the weather is fine, and outside temperature is of a comfortable degree.

Flyin' Solo-73Jack-off quickies are okay when a guy’s horniness begins to overwhelm him. However, if that guy wants to truly take his time to edge his dick, and to feel/caress his balls, play with his taint/perineum, and ass hole, and/or touch every erogenous zone (aka e-zones) that he can reach and feel on his naked body – all without interruption or nearby eavesdroppers, then he’ll need all of his will power to refrain from the temptation of doing a jack off quickie and wait until he’s safely home or to his room (if he has roommates); any place where there’s [more] privacy for him to peacefully get erotically and sexually tuned into himself as he masturbates.

I’ve got more to share in this Masculine Perspectives series on male masturbation coming in future blog articles. Stay tuned!

Regarding the Tumblr Situation

CT with laptopPREFACE: Fellas, please forgive me for this late response, particularly to those of you who were kind to send me inquiries either in the comment section of Masculine Perspectives, via text message, or a private message on Facebook and Twitter regarding concerns about my Tumblr blog, Male Oriented Erotica & Perspective (MOEP) (www.male-oep.tumblr.com). I humbly thank you for and appreciate your concerns. I have been ill lately – and, to make matters worse for me, my ability to type anything lengthy has, for the past several days and until recently, been limited due to me suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome in my right hand. I explain the latter in this blog article published on Masculine Perspectives. Now, to briefly answer the personally appreciated question of concern about my Tumblr blog, Male Oriented Erotica & Perspective (MOEP), the older sister blog of this blog, Masculine Perspectives.

No, gentlemen…I have no “set-in-stone” nor any firm plans for MOEP. My guess is either Tumblr will continue (as it has been doing since their announcement a few weeks earlier) flagging adult content that has been posted and/or which has been previously posted on MOEP; content which Tumblr’s software algorithms – and/or the human eyes of their staff – determine to be in violation of their precious (and now prudish)revised Community Standards (CS) policy.

For those who either don’t blog on Tumblr or visit Tumblr, I am referring to a recent revision to Tumblr’s Community Service (CS) policy which – as of today (December 17, 2018), now prohibits and/or flags any and all “adult content” (aka NSFW – “not safe for work”) which either is presently existing or newly posted on its network. According to Tumblr, blogs on the Tumblr network having such content will be taken from public view and access – as in, taken off their internet web in such a way Tumblr deems fit, and (supposedly) made visually available only to the account user’s Tumblr account blog/page (which of course I think is pointless in and of itself). As of this writing, I see Tumblr has already taken down MOEP from the web and made it only accessible to me. It may also be accessible to other Tumblr bloggers but I don’t know. I can see it when I log on to my Tumblr dashboard – and, as of this writing, also see other blogs with adult content when I log on to Tumblr. I don’t pretend to remotely understand how or what exactly Tumblr is doing, especially considering that I’m still getting notices from Tumblr that other Tumblr bloggers are liking and re-blogging content already posted on MOEP. Still, I see that my browser links and tabbed pages to MOEP show that the connection to MOEP has been removed. Oh well, so much for that!

Flyin' Solo-49There are a number of bloggers who had been posting notices (on both Tumblr and Twitter) which offer Tumblr bloggers the option of joining some Tumblr-like network that’s supposed to be Tumblr-like in every way (sans the restriction of adult content, of course). I don’t know which of those alternative networks to choose and transfer my MOEP data and I hesitate to list any of the suggestions I’ve found or received in this article. (I wouldn’t want you to blame me for either visiting and/or migrating your Tumblr blog data content to a bad site!) However, if YOU, dear reader, have or know of a good and reliable Tumblr-alternative network site…one (or some) which offers the safe and efficient data migration of the data/content on a person’s Tumblr blog, then feel free to share that information in the comments section of this article. (I – and other readers of this article humbly THANK YOU in advance, especially if the migration works and is successful!) I’ll check out the suggested network site(s) but likely won’t immediately migrate MOEP (assuming at all that I can migrate) my data to that network nor will I subscribe to it until I see how well and adequate that website is running.

In the meantime, I’ll probably keep my Tumblr account open and active (which allows me to have access to MOEP) but I will disconnect the WordPress connection between Masculine Perspectives and MOEP/Tumblr and remove the Tumblr share button from this blog. With MOEP no longer accessible on the public web (as I understand that to be the case), I have no desire to post or share anything else on or to MOEP while it is with Tumblr.

At this point, I’m not going to fret much over this whole Tumblr thing very much. Yes, I’ve got a strong opinion about the whole matter (which I’ll probably share later) but the bottom line to all of the Tumblr shit is that there’s nothing I can do about four years of hard work on my Tumblr hobby being taken out of public view. At least I have Masculine Perspectives; although while WordPressCommunity Standards policy allows for adult content, that blogging service provider does not allow images which depict sexual acts. MP Promo UseThis is why you won’t see sexual acts like fellatio (aka blow jobs), dudes jacking off (masturbating), nor dudes fucking [other dudes] et al, featured on this blog. (However, Masculine Perspectives does have images which are merely sexually suggestive of those particular acts.) Besides, I had never intended for Masculine Perspectives to carry that kind of content anyway since (until recently) I was saving that sort of thing for posting on my Tumblr blog, MOEP. Now, should WordPress ever get a hair up its ass and decide to go the way of Tumblr…meaning, should WordPress also decide to prohibit adult content on its network, then I will consider closing this blog and ask for a refund of whatever money is left on my paid subscription. I’m just sick of all the prudish censorship and the so-called “safe environment” bullshit!

Fellas, I’ve got much more to say about this evil Tumblr Community Standards and so-called “safe environment” situation but the nerves in my right hand and wrist (yes, the very hand I use to jack my dick) has been tingling like a mutherfucker in the last few minutes (again, due to carpal tunnel syndrome), so I’ll end this article here.

All my best to my fellow Tumblr bloggers!
(And a huge and appreciative THANK YOU is given to those persons who recently came from Tumblr and decided to add Masculine Perspectives to their list of blogs to follow.)

National Coming Out Day

NCOD_Should never need this day (Robz Edit-1)Today, October 11, many of us observe annual National Coming Out Day (NCOD). Here’s a Happy National Coming Out Day” to everyone who has revealed, plans to reveal, or intends to soon reveal their non-heterosexual orientation (aka “coming out”) to the people who are important in their lives. It’s always been my hope that one day the world will never need to have or observe such a day for non-heterosexual people; that everyone – whether living or deceased, will simply be respected for being who they are or were, and that people will be judged by the content of their character and never, ever by their ethnicity and/or by their sexual orientation.

Each year when National Coming Out Day is observed, I try to remind people (either through my blog or on social media) who are not “out” with their non-heterosexuality to their family members, friends, and acquaintances that they are never under any obligation to reveal their sexual orientation (aka “come out”) on this particular day nor any other day. They should not feel that they “have to” make some special or major announcement to that effect, unless of course, they want to; perhaps to mark the occasion for anniversary reasons.NCOD-talking to someone I simply believe that a non-heterosexual person should only reveal his or her non-heterosexuality to those persons whom he or she knows well and can trust; people with whom that non-heterosexual person can feel and be safe with and around. I advise people who wish to “come out” with their non-heterosexuality to first and foremost follow their instinct when making such an important decision. Considering that we live in a hetero-normal society – one which has many openly and closeted bigots, non-heterosexual people must carefully consider the pros and the cons that making such a personal intimate revelation might have upon his or her life and/or on their particular livelihood.

A person who plans to reveal his or her non-heterosexuality should have a means of strong, positive, emotional and psychological support (e.g., a close friend or relative who either is non-heterosexual him/herself or who happens to be a LGBTQ+ ally or is “gay friendly”), particularity if the grand news of the person who is coming out has a negative impact. This advice especially applies to those young teens and young adults who happen to still live at home with their parents or guardians; most particularly those parents or guardians who are or who have openly expressed their non-support, non-acceptance, and non-tolerance of non-heterosexual/LGBTQ+ people. This would be especially important if such parents or guardians provide the housing, food, and/or substantial financial support for their non-heterosexual young teen or young adult.

I would further advise that everyone – particularly younger people, to be mindful in their decision to come out/reveal their non-heterosexuality. MP Sunday's Sin-2They should not base such an important decision solely on what they may have heard or may have learned happened to someone else who earlier revealed his or her non-heterosexuality. While the personal testimony and experience of that other person may be (and should be) inspiring, it’s very important to keep certain things in their proper perspective based on one’s own real world aspects. In other words, a coming out story is not a “one size fit all” kind of thing. Whatever worked for someone else who came out of the non-heterosexual “closet” or whatever did not work for someone else who came out, may not have the same results for everyone else. Granted, there are many good and positive ‘coming out’ testimonials/stories – and that’s a most fortunate thing. However, there are also many bad and awful ‘coming out’ testimonials. Some stories have good endings while others will have a sad and often terrible ending. You can watch and listen to a number of coming out testimonies/stories on YouTube and on other social media video platforms. Just “google” the term “coming out” and the search engine will provide many links to a number of websites, personal blogs, videos, and social media networks where someone is either giving coming out advice, sharing a personal coming out story, or providing a link and/or phone number for coming out support. On Facebook and Twitter, the tag #comingout or #coming_out may provide links to related content.

LGBT Pride memeRevealing the truth of one’s sexual orientation in a world where heterosexuality is considered “the norm” isn’t always easy nor will it always have immediate positive results. Such a revelation about one’s sexual self is indeed a personal choice; one which must operate under one’s personal timetable, not by any peer pressure or threats, and certainly not by any pressure which may be given by other non-heterosexuals who are already out. No one has a right to “out” anyone nor force or coerce any closeted non-heterosexual person to reveal his or her true sexual orientation.

I cannot argue that in many instances it’s sometimes better when people know one’s non-heterosexual orientation. While such a personally intimate detail should not even matter, the sad fact remains that we still live in a prudish yet hypocritically religious, and often peculiar society where another person’s sexuality and/or what that person does sexually with someone else, is of great interest. Then there are people who are bigots and in that number are those particular individuals and organizations who would try to use a person’s known or suspected non-heterosexuality as a tool to embarrass, harass, and/or blackmail that person into doing something he or she doesn’t want to do. However, if one is already out as a non-heterosexual person then he or she can neither be embarrassed nor blackmailed (but still subject to harassment) simply on the basis of their sexuality. (This would be one of the pros or heathy benefits for coming out and being out as a non-heterosexual person.)
Here are several more reasons for why coming out as non-heterosexual and living in one’s truth are important:

  • Being out with your non-heterosexuality and living in your truth means never having to live in [further] misery, shame, nor embarrassment;
  • Being out means never having to sneak around and/or hide what you say or do;
  • Being out means you don’t have to lie about being gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender – nor about anything that’s non-heterosexual about you;
  • Being out means never having to lie, justify, or even prove to someone about your sexuality being fluid, nor do you have to explain why you have an emotional and/or sexual preference to someone who is your gender or – like bisexual and pansexual people, an emotional and/or sexual preference to both or to any gender;
  • Being out means never having to hide nor lie about who you dated or fucked, nor for whom you might have a sexual desire or lust; that would include you being relieved that you no longer have to change the gender pronoun of someone of your gender whom you happened to be dating or simply fucking;
    and….
  • Being out with your non-heterosexuality and living in your truth means you’re much freer to be the you that you were always meant to be: authentic.

NCOD_Harvey Milk quoteFortunately, the number of people who either don’t (or won’t) give a fuck about the sexuality of another person is growing.  We can attribute much of that growth to heterosexual/straight people becoming more educated about human sexuality and its fluidity, as well as to the fact that many non-heterosexual people all over the world have been and are continuing to reveal – either publicly or within their family or local community, their non-heterosexuality to relatives, friends, schoolmates, and co-workers every day. There is great indisputable truth that LGBTQ+ people are LEGION! We are indeed EVERYWHERE!

The annual National Coming Out Day gives non-heterosexual people much inspiration. If the public and family “coming out” of non-heterosexuals trend continues, and if more human rights and privileges for LGBTQ+ people are allowed, and if more tolerance and acceptance is given for all of us who are non-heterosexual and members of the LGBTQ+ family, then I believe our society – our world – will eventually no longer be considered “heteronormal”. The word “normal” – as it has long been applied to heterosexuality (hence the word “heteronormal”), will be freely applied to mean and to include everyone where human sexual orientation is concerned.

Finally, if you are not out and are unsure as to when or if you will ever come out/make public your sexual orientation, NCOD_ct_thinking manjust remember that you will know when it’s time. Hopefully when or if that time comes you’ll be ready and confident to simply state – without feeling any shame, embarrassment, or hesitation, that you’re gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, pansexual or whatever (if you feel the need to use a non-permanent labelling term to identify your non-heterosexuality) or if you so prefer, you may simply state,I’m sexually fluid.” – and leave it at that. Hopefully the reception you receive after telling your truth to someone will be positive, respectful, and loving.

Whomever you are, whatever you do, and wherever you go, always be you and be sexy-confident about it all! Happy National Coming Out Day!
