Lockdown Valentine Adult Special!

Early 2021 and we are still in lockdown, who would have thought that 12 months ago! It is driving us a little mad here at the esmale headquarters. Almost a year on an we are still unable to move around the way we like and meet who we want when we want. We have lost out on so much fun and human contact.

Gay sex summer of 2020

My goodness what a summer! You can't do this, but you can do that... on no you can't... or can! Lots of that and more confusion was, and still is the theme of this summer. Like many I have particularly been struggling with not having contact with those closed to me and zooming is only “fun” the first few times. After that it became more of a reminder of how much I miss people rather than a good way to stay connected.

Now that we are all in lockdown I wanted to share some adult fun stuff to do indoor, I am lucky enough to work for, one of the biggest online gay lifestyle stores in the UK and have access to thousands of amazing gay sex toys and the hottest fashion and fetish gear.

Ultimate Guide to Butterflies

Butterflies and moths have been around for millions of years. They used to be a common sight in gardens, but numbers have declined since the 1940s along with our other native wildlife species such as bees and hedgehogs.



My coming out story

I used to be very homophobic and had a very butch life. Coming out to me was not telling other people but admitting to myself that I was gay. I had a very serious climbing incident on the Bonatti Pillar in the French Alps, that made me re-look at life.
No way was I going to live. I had two ways to die and gave myself 24 hours to choose how to die after being stuck alone 4,000M up a mountain for 6 days, 4 days without food and water.
