RE: Flashing midsection? >Yes, even J.D. Salinger made >reference to it in "Catcher in the Rye" (Or was it "A >Separate Peace?" All those ridiculous coming of age stories I >had to read in high school have blurred together...) Well I don't believe JD wrote "A Separate Peace" did he??? If he did let me know, because I love JD Salinger and thought I had read everythig he has written. I love Catcher in the Rye, which I've read several times, but the first reading as a junior in HS was the best, no question. If I've said it once, I've said it a 1,000 times that Latino men are always aware of a man looking at him much more so than any other ethnicity, at least in my experience. But it has also been my experience that they are the coolest about handling it and like to provide a little eye candy as a treat of appreciation for adimiring their beauty. Certainly doesn't mean they are willing to pursue it further than that though. I'm not saying this applies only to Latinos, as a lot of other men are aware of the looks/glances and the ones that are comfortable with and confident of their own sexualtiy are not the least offended and will do this to acknowledge a gay man's attraction to them.
