The Dirty Secrets of Homosexuality Pt. 2: Sexual Practices

This is the second post in a two-part series about the secrets of homosexuality. If you haven’t read the first article, “The Dirty Secrets of Homosexuality Pt. 1: Promiscuity“, I would encourage you to do so. This article will touch on some common sexual practices in the homosexual community that are physically damaging to the people involved. I do want to warn you that some of these sexual practices are graphic but, I believe understanding is essential to a rational debate on the subject. With that warning, we move on to the subject of this article.

There are many common homosexual practices that endanger the well-being of those who practice homosexuality. In the previous post we looked at the  Christian Research Institute’s article, “Is Homosexuality a Healthy Lifestyle?“. In that article CRI discusses many unhealthy sexual practices and they quote a well-known proctologist, Dr. Bernard J. Klamecki. This is some of what he had to say:

I know well the medical and surgical pathology directly related to the sexual practices typical of active homosexuals, particularly anal intercourse (sodomy) and oral intercourse (fellatio)…. Sexual practices typical of homosexuals can affect the oral cavities, lungs, penis, prostate, bladder, anus, perianal areas outside of the rectum, rectum, colon, vagina, uterus, pelvic area, brain, skin, blood, immune system, and other body systems…. While none of the following practices is unique to homosexuals, they are nonetheless typical…. Most common is anal intercourse (sodomy)

According to Dr. Klamecki the common homosexual experience affects the entire body and, the overwhelming effects are negative. He then goes on to discuss some specific practices that are a little disturbing:

Foreign objects are often used in order to produce a different erotic sensation or to instigate a more violent sexual activity (sadomasochism). Objects that I have removed from the rectum and lower bowel include corn cobs, light bulbs, vibrators, soda bottles, and varied wooden sticks.

It does not take a doctor to realize that using these types of objects to achieve sexual fulfillment can do serious damage to the body. My sister is a surgeon and, while working she had to extract a toy alligator head from a man’s anal cavity. This is not a minority of homosexual men using foreign objects, it is the majority. Dr. Kalmecki continues on:

Oral intercourse (fellatio) is when the tongue is used to lick or tickle the outlet of the rectum for sexual excitement, arousing, or foreplay. Needless to say, bacteria may contaminate and infect the mouth. One other sexual practice is ‘Water Sports,’ in which urinating into the mouth or rectum is used as a sexual stimulant. Physical damage to the rectum may occur because of some of these practices.

Both of these acts, along with the others, may not solely be homosexual activities but, they are prominent within the homosexual community. They are damaging and, they threaten the lives of those participating in these sexual practices. Dr. Kalmecki then goes on to give some serious health risks associated with common homosexual activity:

There is an antinatural activity being performed when the rectum is the recipient of a penis or foreign object. Because of this activity, cracking of the tissue (fissuring), open sores (ulcers), boils (abscesses), and other infections can occur in the skin of the surrounding tissues…. Persistent anal-rectal sexual activity can lead to various pre-cancerous lesions such as Bowen’s disease and Kaposi’s sarcoma. Whenever tissues are traumatized, cracked, or abraded, they are vulnerable to bacterial infection.

Tissue damage, ulcers, boils, and other infections are serious health risks associated with gay sex. Not only that Kalmecki says that “persistent anal-rectal sexual activity can lead to various pre-cancerous lesions”. This should concern, not only the people involved but, Christians as well. Homosexuality is not only a lifestyle choice…it is a damaging lifestyle that leads to death. If pre-cancerous lesions don’t raise your concern notice the stat that Dr. Kalmecki gives about AIDS:

Dr. Klamecki then continues, discussing the various bacterial diseases and viral diseases he regularly encounters with his homosexual patients — the most prominent being AIDS (the current figure is that 70 percent of Americans with AIDS are male homosexuals or bisexuals).

Dr. Kalmecki, and every medical professional I have read, agrees that promiscuous homosexual practice dramatically increases the chances of the homosexual contracting AIDS. He also points out that drug abuse is typical among homosexual men:

In addition, he asserts that up to 86 percent of homosexual males use various drugs to enhance and increase their sexual stimulation.

Almost 90% of homosexual men use some sort of drug so they can engage in their sexual activity. This is common place among homosexuals, in fact, while doing some research, I found an interesting article at Gawker.com written by a gay man named Brian Maylan. In Maylan’s article entitled, “The Secrets Gay Men Don’t Want Straight Men to Know”, he writes this about drug use among homosexuals:

For those who don’t know, poppers are an inhalant that is rather easy to come by in most adult book stores or gay leather shops. It’s amyl nitrite and it’s sold as ‘room deodorizer’ or ‘video head cleaner’ or some other preposterous bull**** like that. Homosexuals love this stuff. Well, not all of them, but a lot of them. Especially bottoms [the man whom’s anal cavity is penetrated]! What it does is loosen up all the involuntary muscles (like in the throat and anus) so it’s so much easier to get large objects pushed into them. They also make you kind of dizzy and crazy and make every cell in your body scream, “I want to f*** right now” at the same time. They’re great. They also give me a headache and make me want to pass out. Whatever, that’s the price you pay.

Maylan’s comments support Dr. Kalmecki’s statement about common drug use among homosexuals. If one needs to use drugs so they can engage in their sexual practices, it is not healthy.

With these factors it is easy to see that the common homosexual lifestyle is not healthy. In fact, the average homosexual is in danger of serious physical harm and, we should all be concerned about their well-being. Even though promiscuity and these damaging sexual practices are rampant among the homosexual community, there is hope. We need to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to these people because, they are not only in danger of losing their lives but, they are in danger of losing their souls. Thankfully, change is possible. Paul wrote these words about every believer in the Lord Jesus Christ:

9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, passive homosexual partners, practicing homosexuals, 10 thieves, the greedy, drunkards, the verbally abusive, and swindlers will not inherit the kingdom of God. 11 Some of you once lived this way. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. -1 Corinthians 6:9-11, NET

If you identify yourself as a homosexual, I pray that you will repent and turn to God for healing. If you are a Christian, I pray that you will have concern and love for those engaged in a homosexual lifestyle. No matter which one you are, or are not, change is possible and, change comes through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Your post is amazing for including so many misleading and inaccurate statements in so little space. Perhaps most misleading is the inference that “only 10% of homosexuals [are] monogamous.”

    I’m not sure what circles you and the author of the article you cite travel in, but fact is like heterosexuality, homosexuality can be expressed in a healthy and responsible manner; and like heterosexuality, it can be expressed in an unhealthy and irresponsible manner. The gay Christian couples I know are seeking to fulfill a fundamental, God-implanted human need for a shared life of intimate, committed and exclusive love with one other human being. They are striving to do the one thing God considered supremely important about all sexual relationships: they are living their sexual lives within their covenants with each other. In conjunction with this, they prize such values as fidelity, mutuality, truthfulness, and permanence.

    While I would not argue about some of the outlandish behavior and dress the media select to show us whenever there is, for example, a parade. But if the heterosexual pimps and prostitutes that line some of the seedier parts of our cities would have a parade, would we conclude that this is indicative of all heterosexual people? The answer, of course, is self evident. To suggest that only 10% of homosexuals are monogamous and 90% are promiscuous is grandiose, foolish and categorically dishonest. And the fact that some gay people choose to express their sexuality in an unhealthy or irresponsible manner does not mean that all homosexual behavior warrants such censure any more than all heterosexuals are to be condemned for their sexual behavior by association with the sins of pedophilia, lust, rape, promiscuity or adultery.

    Promiscuity — whether heterosexual or homosexual — is unhealthy physically, psychologically and spiritually. As for whatever promiscuity may exist in the non-Christian gay community, perhaps one of many questions you need to ponder is: What do you suppose heterosexual relationships would look like if marriage was something they were denied? My years of mentoring and offering counsel to others have taught me that the commandment “you shall not commit adultery” is still terribly relevant, and our religious traditions wisely maintain that marriage is sacred, the bonds between spouses are inviolate and that nothing shatters marital trust more than infidelity. As for the infidelity and promiscuity that exist in the heterosexual community, which you make no mention of, let’s remember that the (heterosexual) divorce rate is at 50% both inside and outside of the church. Perhaps then, the warning of Jesus about the perils of trying to conduct eye-surgery when you are unwittingly the victim of poor vision yourself would be a salutary one to remember here.

    • Alex,

      I have written on divorce inside the church. Use the search bar to find it. Also, you are not fulfilling a need by looking to another man for an intimate relationship. In reality you are going against the prescriptive will of God. Also, my posts were based on facts. You may not like those facts but, that is another issue.

      Travis

      • Travis, You say your post is based on facts??!! That is not true at all. Case in point:

        THE AUTHOR SAYS: “Therapists helping homosexuals who are unhappy with their condition can cite one case history after another showing that negative early childhood experiences are the one common factor found in almost all their patients. The vital factor here is that these people were raised in a very unloving home environment, never knowing love or acceptance from their mother or their father, or in some cases both.”

        REPLY: He can’t be for real, Travis. Every human being has had negative early childhood experiences. If they haven’t, it’s only because they can’t remember them. If these therapists bothered to ask, I’d bet top dollar that all of their patients had negative childhood experiences, whether gay or straight.

        HE ALSO SAYS: “And they [environmental factors believed to cause a homosexual orientation] are virtually never even acknowledged by the homosexual community, because most homosexuals want to believe that they were born that way and had no choice (conscious or subliminal) in the matter.”

        REPLY: I’m going to take a leap of faith and assume that the author has actually interviewed a substantial sample of gay people in order to make this emphatic declaration. Gay people want to believe they born gay, and so they believe it??!! Seriously??!!

        If the author would take his head out of the sand and actually talk to gay people, he would be very hard-pressed to find a single gay person who actually believes that they had any say whatsoever in the determination of their orientation.

        Your post is based on facts??!! That is categorically untrue. The author’s arguments reek of a lack of biblical study, or at best, an utter failure to study objectively; yet they present unfounded beliefs with authority and confidence that easily convinces those who already assume they’re right anyway. It’s really a tragedy because although gay people often “suffer” from their ignorance in one way or another, the ultimate victim is the “rightly divided word of truth,” which winds up being misrepresented and, most treacherously, used as a means to attack, criticize, ostracize, and condemn people — things God’s word was never intended to do. At its core, this is a theological issue. So, let’s dig into the Bible itself and find out just how untheological the anti-gay position really is. We can start with the following posts:

        “Genesis 19: What Were the Real Sins of Sodom?”
        “Leviticus 18: What Was the Abomination?”
        “Romans 1: What Was Paul Ranting About?”
        “Romans 2: Paul’s Bait and Switch”
        “Genesis 1: Turning the Creation Story into an Anti-Gay Treatise”
        “Why No One in the Biblical World Had a Word for Homosexuality”
        “Exegesis: Not For the Faint in Heart”

        Links to these and more posts may be found by simply clicking the link below and then selecting the “Archives” page.

        At the heart of this debate, and the article you cite, is the need for a closer look at the biblical texts that have been grossly misused to false justify this author’s very un-factual position.

        -Alex Haiken
        http://JewishChristianGay.wordpress.com

      • Alex,

        We have been over this time and time again. I will not be engaging in anymore conversation with you because I will make a sound biblical argument and you will accuse me of esegesis. That act is old and at this point I would be throwing pearls before swine. Also, you should listen to Dr. James White’s devastating response to being a “gay christian”. You can find it on todays post.

        Travis

  2. Travis, the point is that you cannot say “your post was based on facts” when in reality (and I provided some very specific examples above from the author’s own article), the opposite is indeed true. That would be dishonest and deceitful of you. Since you have cited and are touting his article as “fact”, I would hold that as a Christian you have more integrity than to sidestep the responsibility to look closer at some of the many inaccuracies and fallacies this author has tried to pawn off to his audience as “fact.”

    -Alex Haiken
    http://JewishChristianGay.wordpress.com

  3. Travis, I cited two specific instances where the author clearly stated things that are not true. Do you disagree? Did you read the author’s inaccuracies that I pointed out? Would you like several more instances of his utter failure to study objectively, yet present unfounded beliefs with authority and confidence as though they were true? Do you agree that if you’re going to cite his material and claim it to be “fact” that you have a responsibility to go back and double check to verify when readers bring to your attention that he is stating things that we know to be false? Does not integrity require this?

    -Alex Haiken
    http://JewishChristianGay.wordpress.com

    • The words you quoted are not found in the article that I referenced. Do you agree that in order to disprove my facts you would need to actually disprove my writing? Alex, you try and wiggle your way through every conversation we have. You dodge questions and then when I call you out you say something like, “That’s esegesis,” or, “This author has said this somewhere else…what do you say about that?” Unfortunately, those aren’t arguments. They are statements that are meaningless unless thoroughly explained but, that doesn’t happen.

      Travis

    • Oh and when I asked that you check out Dr. White’s interaction with that “gay christian” presentation that will be posted on Monday. I was at work and forgot that it will be up Monday not today.

  4. The words are indeed the words of the author you cited (Joseph P. Gudel). But they are from his article titled, “Homosexuality Facts and Fiction.” Links to the article are available on line. Simply Google the author’s name and article title.

    YOU SAID: “Alex, it isn’t only that you are choosing not to see the truth but it is obvious that you can’t.”

    ME: Here’s where you’re wrong (yet again). Not only CAN I see where you’re coming from, I DID see where you’re coming from. 20 years ago, I was preaching and teaching the same bad doctrine that you’re pushing. And when people tried to tell me that that my antigay doctrine was not exegetically supportable, I couldn’t see it and I didn’t believe them just as you can’t see it and don’t believe me. But like the steadily growing numbers of evangelical scholars and others who have done their biblical and theological homework, I ultimately discovered that I was wrong. Maybe you’ll get there one day too.

    • Alex,

      You said: “But like the steadily growing numbers of evangelical scholars and others who have done their biblical and theological homework, I ultimately discovered that I was wrong. Maybe you’ll get there one day too.”

      Me: Same song and dance. Alex, simply telling me that you used to say the same things I did rings hollow when you are heavily invested in this subject. You are gay and trying to reconcile the Bible with your sexual urges. Unfortunately, it doesn’t wash. I have written on the subject. I have exegeted the Scriptures and your view doesn’t hold up. Saying, “I am a gay christian,” is amount to saying, “I am a christian that doesn’t love my neighbor as myself,” or, “I am an angry christian.” They just don’t work.

      Travis

  5. YOU SAID: “You are gay and trying to reconcile the Bible with your sexual urges.”

    ME: Actually, what I’m saying is that I held your position for many years until I discovered that when the few passages that generally get appealed in this debate are examined more closely and in context, your position simply does not hold up to scrutiny. But if what you’re saying is we have to reject my position simply by virtue of the fact that I’m gay, should we also reject your position simply by virtue of the fact that you’re straight? Where is the logic there?

    YOU SAID: Saying, “I am a gay Christian,” is amount to saying, “I am a Christian that doesn’t love my neighbor as myself,” or, “I am an angry Christian.” They just don’t work.

    ME: You completely lost me of this one. Can you explain how saying, “I am a gay Christian,” is in any way akin to saying, “I am a Christian that doesn’t love my neighbor as myself,” or, “I am an angry Christian.” Where is the correlation? Can you elaborate so i can understand your reasoning?

    -Alex Haiken
    http://JewishChristianGay.wordpress.com

    • Alex,

      You: “But if what you’re saying is we have to reject my position simply by virtue of the fact that I’m gay, should we also reject your position simply by virtue of the fact that you’re straight? Where is the logic there?”

      Me: No, Jesus’ positive teachings on marriage are clear. The Bible’s condemnation of homosexuality is clear as well. What I am saying is that because of your proclivity to homosexuality you will find any way possible to dismiss the Bible’s teachings on the subject. You have made that abundantly clear.

      You: “ou completely lost me of this one. Can you explain how saying, “I am a gay Christian,” is in any way akin to saying, “I am a Christian that doesn’t love my neighbor as myself,” or, “I am an angry Christian.” Where is the correlation? Can you elaborate so i can understand your reasoning?”

      Me: I thought my words were clear. Saying, “I’m a Gay Jewish-Christian,” is like saying, “I am an angry Christian.” Both are sinful and are hypocritical statements. For instance, Leviticus 19:18 says that we are to love our neighbor as ourselves. If I reject that fundamental truth, I reject Christianity. Rejecting the Bible’s positive teachings of marriage and/or the condemnation of homosexuality means you reject Christianity.

      I do have a question for you though. If I am not mistaken you dismiss Leviticus’ discussion on homosexuality because it could be ceremonial law right? If that is the case why is loving your neighbor in Lev. 19:18 different?

      Travis

  6. YOU SAID: “Jesus’ positive teachings on marriage are clear.”

    ME: It would seem we’re getting down to some meat now and not just hot air. So tell us, what precisely are these “positive teachings” of Jesus on marriage that, as you say, are so “clear”?

    YOU SAID: “What I am saying is that because of your proclivity to homosexuality you will find any way possible to dismiss the Bible’s teachings on the subject.”

    ME: That is not only categorically untrue and uninformed, it is downright insulting. First of all, I do not “have a proclivity to homosexuality”, I am homosexual. Just as you don’t have a “proclivity” to heterosexuality, you are heterosexual (presumably).

    Secondly, fact is I attended and graduated from one of the most academically rigorous evangelical seminaries in the nation. I can assure you that (a) sloppy exegesis does not fly there, and (b) no one makes a commitment to that kind of a seminary without a keen respect for responsible and solid exegetical study of God’s Word.

    No matter how you may try to dance around it, Travis, fact also remains that a steadily growing number of people – both STRAIGHT and GAY – with a high view of scripture and who are prayerfully committed to ordering their lives accordance with it, categorically disagree with you, though they at one time bought into what you have. To imply that I hold the position that I do simply because I am gay not only defies logic and facts (e.g., I held your position for years until I learned that it is not exegetically supportable), it is grossly ill-formed (e.g., steadily growing numbers of HETEROSEXUAL evangelical scholars working in good faith and out in the open categorically disagree with you. Based on your reason and logic, all straight people would agree with you and all gay people would agree with me. Lord knows, that is a false and ridiculous presupposition.

    So what precisely are these “positive teachings” of Jesus on marriage that you profess are so “clear”? Let’s go to the word.

    YOU ALSO SAID: “I do have a question for you though. If I am not mistaken you dismiss Leviticus’ discussion on homosexuality because it could be ceremonial law right? If that is the case why is loving your neighbor in Lev. 19:18 different?”

    Me: That is not correct at all, Travis. I do not dismiss Leviticus’ discussion on homosexuality “because it could be ceremonial law”. You can find my exegetical treatment of Leviticus 18 at the following post:

    “LEVITICUS 18: WHAT WAS THE ABOMINATION?”

  7. Travis, for what it may be worth, an even faster way to link to the link to the post: “LEVITICUS 18: WHAT WAS THE ABOMINATION?” is to simply click the link below and then from the home page scroll down to the bottom of the current post. The current post on the home page is titled “SAME-SEX MARRIAGE: WHY CHRISTIANS NEED TO THINK AGAIN”. Sine this post is also very much on target with what we’re discussing, I’d strongly recommend that you read this one too and then we can discuss. At the bottom of the post, you’ll find links to related posts. One of them is: “LEVITICUS 18: WHAT WAS THE ABOMINATION?”

    I look forward to hearing your lucid reply to these two posts which will answer the question you asked in some detail.
