Wrestling Issues

Wrestling For Gay Guys
Black
1995

Of course I wanted to look at this book. The cover and title are just too interesting. I know almost nothing about wrestling so I can’t tell if this book is a put on or not. The information seems like any other sports book about wrestling with the small segue into some relationship and dating advice. Any gay wrestlers out there want to weigh in on this?

  • Bizarre.

  • “You should have a bath…. Can you manage that?” is an example of what NOT to say, I would think. It comes off as quite insulting.

  • I see the title and I think, “Foreplay?” or is that just too wrong?

  • It looks legit to me

  • So, do you add this to your display of wrestling books?

  • Why are these guys so well-endowed? Is this a stereotypical presumption?

  • I see this as a try to catch in on the Tom of Finland-fame.
    Huge muscles and other bulging body parts, macho-men who have fun and enjoy themselves (and each other).

    (Tom of Finland is now so famous and culturally accepted that Finland has made him into stamps!):

  • I assume that dating, and also purchasing your steroids, involves the Internet a lot more today than it did in 1995, and probably a smart phone. You don’t have abs like that and not photograph them. Going by Google Images. (My first thought was simply that you don’t have abs like that. But it turns out that you do. Apparently. They could be spray painted on. You can have that done. Take that, Grindr!)

    So those parts must be out of date. On the other hand, a new book would immediately suffer the same problem. Facebook is one step away from voice recognition (they’re launching a music ID feature, so they’ve got Ricky Martin logged; logically, everyone else is next). And no steps away from blackmail; they already have a page for blackmail (to report it).

    So the present day world is a moving target.
