40 Plus: Gay Men. Gay Talk.

Talking about the things us gay guys
need to be talking about but aren't.

Be the gay man you are.
No excuses, no fears, no apologies.

Let's get real. Dump the gay stereotypes that society has thrown on us. Quit following the rules of what being a "gay man" is supposed to be. It's time for you to own up, man up, and show up the way that you're meant to...your way!

If you feel vulnerable, be vulnerable. Tired of carry pretending you've got it all figured out, then stop. Want more than the corner office prestige? Tired of the constant hooking up or lack of sex? Wishing you had a relationship, but never getting there? Then do something about it that is more than fabulous lip service.

It's time for you to make your bold move, stop sugar coating your bullshit, ask for help, take some scary risks, go ahead and wallow in the unknown, and start living life on your terms.

40 Plus: Gay Men. Gay Talk. The podcast where being naked with ourselves get's us off in life, not just in the moment.


Each week, host Rick Clemons, dives in with raw, real talk about gay men's man junk, and yes, every once in awhile we will even talk about that junk between your legs. From sex and relationships, to fears and vulnerabilities, career challenges to body image, it's a no holds barred approach guaranteed to get you uncomfortable in your gay self, so you can strip away the toxic, stereotypical rules we gay guys think we're supposed by in the world.

It's a no excuses, no fears, no apologies approach to for being a gay guy over 40!
