If it walks like a duck...

I massaged a very nice older gentleman this afternoon. He's from San Francisco, originally from England, and he does some kind of financial stuff with the Chinese and Indian markets (don't ask me).

I was working on his left hamstrings and glute, when out of the blue he started talking about the cowboys here for the rodeo.

He said, "Have you ever massaged one of those rodeo guys? I bet their butts are hard as iron, am I right?"

As I regaled him with a story of the one-and-only bullrider I've massaged, I wondered about something.

Maybe you male readers out there can help me.

I think my gaydar is pretty functional, all things considered, but this client didn't cause a single ping. It is pretty gay for a man to talk about other men's butts, right? I mean, things haven't changed THAT much in the last decade, have they?

Okay, ball's in your court. I'm waiting to be enlightened.

Perhaps the gentleman was lamenting about his fanny not being "rock hard" like the cowboy's fannies. You know.... Butt Envy. He had a pretty woman massaging his glutes and was self concious about them not being rock hard, so he turns the conversation to something more pleasant! I think cowboy glutes are VERY pleasant!

Good point, Blondie. I did think that, too, but it just seemed odd for a straight guy to talk about men's butts. I mean, he could have said something like, "I bet those cowboys are in fantastic shape, right?" without bringing bottoms into it at all. And I'm with you 100% on cowboy glutes. *rowr*

It's pretty gay in MY world, FWIW. I have never, ever heard the subject come up in casual conversation with my male friends. Evah. Even when I lived in SFO. ;-)

Well, wait. Check that. I had a few gay coworkers and the subject might have come up during Happy Hour at one point or another. But straight guys tend to filter that sort of stuff out. Kinda like kids with their selective hearing, yanno?

Well I'm glad I have one guy in my corner on this issue, Buck...thanks!

Putz, I said THIS EVENING!! Sheesh, you're impatient...;)

I have to have another person take the pics, you know.

Um, upper crust English men can be particularly hard to register on the gaydar, imho.

But yeah- asking about another man's butt is off-the-chain faggery any way you slice it!
