H.R. has good advice.

What H.R. said. Forty-some years later, in my case, I am a responsible, pretty well adjusted gay man who still is able to count a few of those elders as friends and mentors, and who will be forever grateful that there was a small community of men who were willing to undertake that charge. I try to pay it forward, and hope that I'm somewhat successful.

But Dan, haven't you said that middle-aged men who are into teenage boys are creeps? The boy was a teenager when they first began having bondage sex.

@3 Yeah, but teenager as in 16, or teenager as in 18 or 19? The writer doesn't say, but it doesn't seem like they've been seeing each other for more than a year. And he loves him. Someone who says he'd be "proud" to live with and support a would-be partner through college just doesn't seem "creepy" to me. He seems loyal and loving.
