Male Sexuality in Korea

"So... tell us. Just how pretty are we?"

No, it isn't a gag store. This is men's fashion in Korea.... I've always liked a man in pink...

Teenage boys in my classes hang all over each other. They hug and touch each other's hair. It's human to want affection and I think the lack of homophobia here is refreshing.

Standing in line at Wooribank the other day, a business man in front of me was absentmindedly grooming the hair of his coworker.

My friend Camille was instructed by her boss to touch the younger students so they'd feel loved. She was told to touch their hair, their hands and to hug them.

In Canada if you work with children, you're put through an obligatory police check, but not in Korea... this I admittedly take issue with.

I come in pink. You just need to tick off that color when you mail order me.

Koreans ARE homophobic. Hanging all over each other isn't a sign that they're not homophobic. They simply believe that homosexuality doesn't exist in Korea. (I have had more than one really smart, hip, happening Korean tell me that--male and female.)

You're absolutely right. This was an early post. Later on I talk about gays forced to live lives of secrecy in Korea, etc.

Great exercise strategy! Gonna try this out tomorrow for your complete
course of the system, as I've ventured through powerlifting, olympic lifting, plyometrics, and bodybuilding just before, but was looking for anything to combine strength and size. Is there any nutrition plans you might have and additional powerbuilding plans?

Here in Brazil a pressure cooker is most frequently related
to cooking our omnipresent black beans.
A instructor of mine in
college defined to us that a stress cooker performs due to
the fact, at greater pressure, drinking water boils at larger temperature,
so it really is permitted to rise to more
than 100 C inside the stress pot, and that is why issues cooks more rapidly in it.

And this could be the same principle that tends to make h2o boil at reduced
temperature in greater altitude. But I would
think that the stress by itself also has some type of
impact over the cooking method.
I think there is certainly
also something that is merely appealing about stress
cooking, I don't know, I find it type of thrilling or one thing, the intensity of it. Maybe it's the
threat in the lid blowing out in spectacular fashion (mine is fairly an
previous pressure pot too, so not nearly as safe as these modern day kinds).
