Lurid Digs

Luriddigs A warning before we begin: Some of these links are absolutely NOT okay for work viewing (even on Casual Friday).

My gay friends were all a-twitter this week with Lurid Digs -- a blog-style site dedicated to "horrifying gay amateur interiors." By trolling the Internet to find gay men shooting amateur porn in horrifyingly decorated (or just plain nasty) rooms, Lurid Diggs strives to smash the myth that all gay men are naturally-talented interior designers. In fact, the creators of Lurid Digs say, "These Feng Shui-challenged souls have proven over and over again that male homosexuals can be just as color uncoordinated, sloppy and nastee as their straight brethren . . . the gap between what defines gay and straight is slowly beginning to zipper shut."

The site features hilarious commentary about photos of gay men getting it on in rooms that look like your grandparents house and a college fraternity house had a lovechild and named it "Tasteless." The commentators are well-known in cyber circles -- Heather Corinna, Publisher of Scarleteen, and Sean Horlor, Vancouver gay blogger from Xtra.ca, to name a couple.

Again, don't check out Lurid Digs at work, but you MUST check it out. I never knew lava lamps were making such a comeback in the gay community...
