Advent Calendar 24 December 2014: Du & Ich 11, 1979 – Arab brothels

kalendersiffran24

“Arab brothels – where men are still men …” is the title story of Du & Ich issue 11, 1979, and for the first time in this advent calendar I’ve had to censor the crotch of a model whose age is hard to assess (he may be 15, 20 or 23 – hard to say!). Click to enlarge the spreads.

Du & Ich 12, 1979 - Arab brothels

Du & Ich 12, 1979 - Arab brothels

The text is an eyewitness account from a brothel in Alexandria, where the author Ernst H. Flick watches an oil wrestling show. One of the participants is “18 the most”, another is a strong black man from Sudan, a third one a blond American who runs a sport studio in the city.

To be honest, the article doesn’t have much substance. But just the fact that a gay magazine at the time would run a title story about an Arab brothel with men and boys is quite spectacular, from today’s perspective. It reminds us of what bleak copy of its brave and colorful past today’s gay press is.

That was all for this year! I hope you enjoyed the advent calendar, even if its content was more “gay” than “boy”. But “gay” used to be a more encompassing word, and that’s what I wanted to show and celebrate with this series of press clippings.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

    bI have wondered about the ‘issue’ of male m b and b m versus m & m lov,e, by married and straight males, what ever the age. I have no info. I am unable to squeeze much out of m y life but a few who loved me but none of whom I had physical sex with, nor any sex with, nor were ever they aware of my interest in , LIARs a we might be, but we never ever said nor did anything sexual, merely knowing by hints not acknowledged (without the wife knowing about ‘IT’) & no thing was ever said. ButI did have those males of low twenties, a few men who showed that they sexually were interested in me but were also married, and they had children, all five, including my sister’s husband, who INSTANTLY knew me, so to speak, and bad, and a few not married no ‘chids’, and they liked me sexually, & all NEVER showed any ‘love’. [I was too freaked out to realize the reality of my ‘love’ as also forcefully however physically as also sexual, as if a fantasy about eating is un-related to a desire to EAT. Not until this very latter half of this year 2014, matter of fact. Evidentially, too. I also do not believe in the Grand Unified Theory nor the Universal G. U. T.] Thankx to U eye emm OH Cay & uhLive. Well, dare is datt part offitt all.

    Let me explain, please ;;;; I also do not believe in the Grand Unified Theory nor the Universal G. U. T. Thankx to U eye emm OH Cay & uhLive. Well, dare is datt part offitt all. :::: = =&=&= : Georg Ferdinand Ludwig Philipp Cantor a “scientific charlatan”, a “renegade” and a “corrupter of youth”. All number theory involving the computers about the WorldWideWeb, this very this-ness, & any dvd & all cell phones, all ‘E’ ‘fault’. Fandolfinvolving the maximum of numbers over time. That is why ‘they’ actually hated him (and still do) and his ‘set theory’, because he insisted that every particle of any set is not a just a digital Morse code of a sort put to number as per his ‘set theory’ demand, but also as an ‘it’ requiring a mentor … oh!! Did he mean a, gasping, god??? mmmmm!!! Even of a sort of the 1800’s & forever a god! ! ????. He even over shadowed Bertrand Russell, the atomic bomb it’s OK guy. It was Bertrand’s symbol we end up with the circle with the upside down Y it – Chrysler Corp’s pentagon with an upside down Y. The ‘peace’ fraud advocate, making fun of Cantor’s numbers.. I love Georg Ferdinand Ludwig Philipp Cantor .

  3. What Wikipedia cannot explain better than me is the extraneous geometry view of the universe, the view inside by the view from the outside, as we as humans ‘see’ ‘it’ ‘do’ ‘it’s thing’. It is this ability that Cantor tried to mathematize, so to speak, and why others insist ”makes” us, homo sapient sapients unique, above, or ‘beyond’, as others actually put it, apes. I am one of such others and with Cantor. This may not seem a b, m, l, nor g nor otherwise ‘ishh’ ‘ness’ ‘ness’, but the entire of the universe as a unified theory is denied by Georg Ferdinand Ludwig Philipp Cantor, which is the real reason he is despised, not just as a homo allower but also making a fool of Bertrand Russell by de-finitisizing, by defining the ‘infinite’ versus the ‘finite’ versus the necessarily finitude observer, thus showing atomic vomit, as he was also known as, Bertrand Russell, as a complete fraud. Over such a politically and ideologically conquering Bertrand Russell, my Cantor-my-hero had no political power, nor had Cantor the power against against Russell’s ‘completion’ theorem, which made Einstein an outsider (please remember::: the ‘dice’ theorem ([of, nowadays, resurrected as ‘unknown matter’ and ‘unknown energy’ theories, 90 % of the worlds] and the C.I.A. ‘we don’t know what we don’t know’ theory of human and terrorist behaviors.), as Einstein against the ultra- super completeness theorems. theorems. . . .
