Thought for the Day, #56

Here is one of my favorite quotes from Alan Downs's The Velvet Rage: Overcoming the Pain of Growing Up Gay in a Straight Man's World (which I highly recommend, by the way):

I am a man.  I need to be loved.  I need to love myself.  I need to feel strong and to cry.  I need to feel alive and to grieve my losses. I need to know that there is someone in this world who truly loves me.  I need to love someone.  I need a safe, stable and committed home.  Truth is, I need all these things much more than I need great sex [p.p.: 22, 23].
