Well, not the American Uncle Sam you have probably seen wearing a ridiculous huge hat, pointing at you and saying, “I want you!”, but the SAM project which launched the Down an’ Dirty website in October.
We are not after taxes or money, nor are we recruiting troops or any other crazy cult. What we are after are fresh ideas, interesting questions, witty comments and constructive interaction.
This is an open invitation to all the sexy men out there to visit www.downandirty.org and look at the videos we’ve produced with guys just like you from the Melbourne community. Listen to how they negotiate sex and much more. Leave a comment on all of them or just on your favourite video.
Let us know what you think or if you would like to get involved in the next round of videos, or maybe you have a video of your own you would like to share.
At downandirty.org you can read about different sexual practices. If there is a practice we had not covered or one you feel could be expanded, please contact us, as this initiative is from sexually adventurous men for sexually adventurous men and all feedback is welcome.
There is an entire section dedicated to recreational drugs. Even though we are not promoting chem sex, we do acknowledge the intimate relationship between sex and drugs and how important it is to have relevant information before you make any decision. Read about how drugs interact with each other and with HIV treatment.
Ask the experts and doctors about sex in its various expressions and the risk involved or ask about anything related to the content of downandirty.org. You can also look at what other guys have asked and continue the questions if you decide to do so. If you are organising a same-sex sex party and need some resources, let us know.
We added a list of organisations and business that have contributed immensely and continue to do so with the development of downandirty.org. Look at the useful links for all the referrals you need in regard to adult shops, venues, sex-on-premises venues, training, workshops, parties, organised social groups and referrals to other useful organisations.
If you are one of the many sexy men out there who likes experiencing and expanding sexual limits, consider this our first move. We are shamelessly flirting with you. Yes, I’ll say it: SAM wants YOU!
Now get your act together and give us something constructive to work on. Don’t let the heated conversation stop here, give us a piece of your mind, I know you wanna.
