Gayish on GLUE: Two homosexuals, unpacking queer stereotypes one at a time.


Let’s talk about Gay Sex, baby.

 

When did you first learn about sex? What was your first time like? What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s happened to you during sex?

Those are just some of the intimate questions Dave Quantic asks queer people on his podcast, Fruitbowl.

 

Beyond just having it, Dave has become an expert in gay sex from the over 60 interviews he’s done for his podcast and the documentary he’s creating from those stories. We invited him on our show to discuss what he’s learned so far.

 

Honest, specific conversations about queer sex are vital. While Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill has made the news recently, states like Texas and Alabama already have laws on the books that require anti-LGBT sex education. A 2013 GLSEN report found that less than only 5% of LGBT students saw a positive representation of LGBT topics in their health classes.

 

 

Because so many of us are still forced to learn about sex alone, Fruitbowl gives listeners the unique opportunity to hear someone open up about their most personal sexual experiences.

As you can probably imagine, the unfiltered stories – like the bottom who got a double-ended dildo stuck inside him, or the guy who had a pet dog fall down dead while he was mid-hookup – range from mild to wild, but help show that we ALL have ‘weird’ sexual experiences. 

 

He also shared with us some of his own sexual stories, like cruising at a park while underage and the terrifying ordeal of getting followed home by a guy on a motorcycle.

 

One of the things he’s learned is that, for most people, their first experience is fraught in some way.

Shows like Dave’s helps normalize the good and the bad of gay sex and helps us all realize that we’re not alone.

And the biggest thing Dave has learned: queer people are fu*king strong.

 

To hear our conversation with Dave and what his interviews have taught him about gay sex, listen to the latest episode of Gayish, available on Apple PodcastsSpotify, or your favorite podcatcher.
