I'll tell you the "best" as in, worst.

There was a guy who said that he lived right around the block from me.

By that, he meant that he was homeless.

I happened to have come home from a club that night, and was wasted off my ass.

I gave him my address, but I passed out on my bed.

About an hour later, I woke up to someone showering in my bathroom.

It was this homeless guy, who put his backpack and dirty clothes on my bedroom floor.

When he was done showering, I said that I felt sick from drinking and needed to sleep.

I politely asked him to leave (so that he wouldn't murder me), and thankfully he did.

I proceeded to lock the door and disinfect every inch of my house.

NEVER again.

This was not a hook-up, but I had an ad on Craigslist. The email relay system did not hide email addresses. A long-time friend of mine and my family responded. We live in a very small town and his email address was very descriptive of who he was. There was no question. I never suspected a thing in 30 years of knowing the guy. I admit, I did respond back to him and tell him who it was. I went to visit him and all was cool. It was good for a laugh and admitted that he "recently" discovered he was at least bisexual.

I used to meet up with guys who were visiting NYC. I saw the inside of some of NYC's nicest hotels. I was extremely disappointed in the Waldorf Astoria! I was expecting more. Two that I had on my list were The Sherry-Netherland and the Plaza, neither of which I got to see. Most of the time it was the Marriott Marquis, the Crown Plaza, the Hilton or the Millennium. Once was in The Peninsula which was nice. They had free Lindt chocolates at the front desk.

I will say that Craigslist was miles better than AOL chatrooms. The men on CL were ready to meet. In AOL chatroom, a guy would string you along for hours and then drop you.

I had just moved to SF from NYC, and at that point in my life was really into milking guys - fingering their prostate while i sucked their dick. On 4th of July, this tall, sexy guy answered, sent pics and invited me over. He was gay but had a natural masculine energy, a furry chest and loved getting his dick sucked and hole played with, plus he was the best dirty talker I've ever been with and his dick was beautiful....just perfect. I met up with maybe a half dozen or so times, normally I am a top but he was so hot that I really wanted him inside me. I wanted him to turn me out! We tried a couple of times but I am a lousy bottom...too tight and too in my head.

The best part about CL now is that I still have all the old emails so I can take a wank through memory lane every now and then. I got a ton of ass then so there are many to choose from but George the dirty-talking pothead is a sentimental favorite.

I had just broken up with my bf of 3 years and was feeling particularly shitty. I answered an ad from a “cop” looking to get blown. When I went over he had his uniform and night stick on display in the bedroom. Great dick and loved getting it sucked and I was, and still am, very good at it. We exchanged numbers and hooked up frequently for some time just for head, sometimes 2-3 a night. Fast forward to about a year later and I was working in NYC casting office. In comes the “cop” to audition. The uniform and nightstick from night one were part of a costume. We continued hooking up and he eventually graduated to fucking me which he did very well. Great fucker with a great cock. My one and only CL hookup.

Married guy with a huge, enormously thick cock, but I remember his body more, because he was very nondescript until his clothes came off. He was unbelievably muscled and defined with a dusting of blond fur everywhere. Perfection. Had a great time, never saw him again. Don't remember his name if we even exchanged names.

Another time I was stranded at a hotel during a blizzard while on a business trip and hooked up through craigslist with a fellow traveler right there in the hotel. This was years before apps so it was pretty novel to connect with someone so close.

From the years 2008, after I had just graduated college,,until literally the very last day Craigslist casual encounters was active—March 18, 2018–I sucked off hundreds of guys. I couldn’t tell you how many because I lost count, but what was astonishing was that I pulled so many hot guys in spite of the fact that i was competing with a bunch of other cocksuckers.

I posted constantly because it was so easy to score. Straight/closeted bi guys were well represented on CL, and it was so easy to get with them. Unlike Doublelist, Craigslist was actually anonymous so it attracted lots of curious guys. Also immensely popular we’re my gloryhole ads.

I can’t name a specific example of the hottest because there were so many hot experiences—blowing guys in my backseat, while he drove, in public, in bathrooms, at my place/theirs. Mostly hot guys in their 20’s/30’s.

I miss Craigslist everyday. It was iconic and there’s nothing that will ever replicate the ease and excitement of hooking up with tons of hot guys.

by Anonymousreply 3410/30/2020

Actually, one event does stand out. March 2009. I was 23, living in San Antonio, and posted an ad looking to suck dick.

For reference, in my early 20’s I was still struggling with my orientation. I knew I liked guys, and knew I loved to suck cock, but wasn’t a compulsive cocksucker, like I became in my mid-20’s. I was also VERY handsome (not a day went by where someone wouldn’t stop me and comment on how hot/sexy/beautiful I was).

Back to that day in March 2009... After rejecting 12 or so replies from the typical fat, ugly and/or elderly, I received a response from a very tall (6’6” 180lbs) whit 19yo Air Force military man. I was ecstatic! He had a fat 9” dick and said he wanted head.

He came over pulled off his pants and I sucked him off. I wasn’t very good back then, as i simply didn’t have much practice. I remember licking under his musky ballsack, and actually starting to shake uncontrollably because it smelled so good. He was like, “are you okay?” 😂

After about 15 minutes he came and I did too, without even touching myself. From that moment forward I become obsessed with sucking dick. He wanted to meet up again but sadly we never did.

I have a Craigslist guy who I still see now (though not so far this year for obvious reasons). I think the first time was in 2014 and we meet a few times a year. He’s Greek and “straight” and he drives over and parks around the corner. I get in, suck his big fat dick, and greedily swallow his load. Same routine every time. Never gets old.

R4 what a waste. If you knew who he was and he didn’t know who you were, that was the perfect opportunity for some shenanigans. I would have set up a glory hole or something and maintained my friendship with him, and I would have gotten off on the fact that he had no idea it was me.

I didn’t have a lot of craigslist encounters, but one that sticks out is when I emailed a married mechanic who was looking for a girl to come over while his wife and kids were away on holiday. I figured I had nothing to lose by offering to suck his cock if he failed to find a woman. Well he’d never done anything with a guy before but he let me fuck him. We didn’t kiss or anything like that and he kept his eyes tightly shut the whole time I was fucking him. Which was... kind of hot! Afterwards I went to my brother’s house and smoked a huge hit of DMT.

"Straight/closeted bi guys were well represented on CL"

Truer words have never been spoken. Damn, some of the absolute HOTTEST married or with-girlfriend guys flocked to that place. I am only a top and you would be shocked (or maybe not) how many guys actually wanted to try getting fucked, prostate massage or in a few cases just rimmed - which often led to more. Many had very specific fetishes - getting spanked and fingering come to mind - but some of these guys were so sexy it was worth it. Many times guys emailed me outside of CL and I was able to figure out full names and find them on Facebook or later Instagram, etc. Their stories checked out 9 times out of 10. Of course I never pestered them but it was interesting to see their day-to-day "straight" lives. I really liked the transactional component to sex and lack of drama or hassle with these hookups - not to mention the privacy on my end as well. Of course Grindr was a huge draw for hot sex when it first started catching on in a big way (met a ton of guys there too - and often the rendezvous usually occurred much faster) but IMO it has severely gone downhill in the last few years. Same with Scruff which I finally stopped using all together. Adam4Adam is still somewhat reliable but not as heavily populated as it used to be either. The "straight" closeted guys often have no pics in their profile (they message them) and often delete accounts quickly and later create a new one once they are horny again. DoubleList only seems to work well when you post an actual ad (rare for me) verses reply to one and when they do get back to your reply it's often a week later after either finding another fuck buddy that day or just jerking off. COVID has changed everything on my end and not worth the risk - although I have browsed a bit just out of curiosity. I can see the privacy issue with all of these other tools (verses almost complete anonymity with CL) and none will ever be what CL once was. Sigh.

I once had an accidental 3 way from posting on Craigslist. I put up my add and a guy answered and I invited him over, but then never heard another word, so I invited another guy over who responded. While in the bedroom getting busy with the 2nd guy my door bell rang and it was the 1st guy! So I asked the guy who i was fucking if he was interesting in having a third and also asked the new guy, and every one was into it. Had a really fun time that night, so much cum was spilled, and we all got along great. I also saw those guys several more times, but never at the same time for another 3 way. Fun times with Craigslist!

I had a Latino super have me come over to his workroom in the basement of his building. He was married with two daughters. He had a bit of a dad belly but massive arms and a gorgeous face, thick muscular legs. He liked white boys with thick, phat asses. He didn't speak much English but he looked at my ass when I got there, said "nice" and gave it a rough but loving squeeze.

He would not kiss, but he nuzzled my neck and ear before pushing me onto his monster cock, which sprung out from his boxer shorts. The thing was a soup can. He made me do poppers, which I had not done in a long time, to get it in my. He fucked in me about four or five positions - including missionary on the floor - my back popped in a few places - and I remember thinking, 'oh, i'm getting fucked AND a chiropractic adjustment! Two gifts!'

He talked dirty in English and Spanish, saying things like 'I love fucking your ass pussy' - it was kinda hot. When he was ready, he pulled out and shot the most cum I've ever seen in my life from one cock lol. I needed three of four paper towels to clean off after.

Afterward, when he walked me out, it was raining, and he held a large umbrella for me to my car. It was very sweet.

Sadly I never got to see him again.

One night there was an ad from a trucker who was at a truck stop about half a mile away from me. We texted a pic of each other,both liked what we saw and agreed to hook up . I pull around to the back of the truck stop (never having been there before) and theres like 100 trucks ! I texted him and asked wich one he was in and he tells me the red and black one . I find it knock on the door and this handsome older black guy opens the door and asks me what I need. I stammered out an apology and explained I had gotten his truck mixed up with someone elses when he looked down at me,smiled and said "you lookin for some dick tonite?" I figure what the hell,bird in the hand and all that and climb up .

He pops open his jeans and pry's out this stump buster . Not more than 5-6 inches,but so wide I could barely get my mouth around it .Im a skilled cocksucker but that was some serious work ,so when he asks me if I take it up the ass I readily agree. I crawl into his little bunk and before you can say Jack Robinson my head is smashed against the side and hes fucking me like he hasnt gotten sex in a decade . I had to beg him to slow down as it truly was hurting though I was hardly a virgin.When he came I thought he was going to break my spine ,he shoved in that hard and deep . Never did hear from the original guy again.

by Anonymousreply 5411/02/2020

R54 - almost 80% of the "straight" guys that I topped from CL refused face pics and honestly there was never an ugly mug in the bunch. Maybe I was just lucky. I found that 9 times out of 10 they were hotter in person than in their pics. This could be due to not knowing how to take pictures of themselves with the right techniques or something, but I was always pleasantly surprised. A large number of them shaved their private regions more than I prefer, but that is really a non-issue.

Craigslist was the best. I had a few memorable hookups on that site. Once when I was traveling on business in San Antonio, I connected with a guy who came to my hotel room. Beautiful Puerto Rican guy, engaged to be married to a woman. Such a sweet and friendly guy, and he had the biggest cock I'd ever seen in real life - about 9" uncut and thick.

While I was sucking him, I pulled his foreskin up over the head of his dick and stuck my tongue inside it. He went, "Oh, my God!" and came seconds later. He said no one had ever done that to him before. The guy was good to go again after just a few minutes and could not get enough of the foreskin play.

Before he left my room that night, he said, "I think I wanna be with guys." I felt kind of bad for him, because I knew he was conflicted and had to go back to his hetero life. I was also pissed that we lived in different states and that I'd never see him again, because he was one of the most fun hookups I'd ever had.

I think about him once in a while and wonder if he had the courage to come out and live his life as a gay man or if he remained in the closet, got married, had kids, and continued to hook up with guys online.

While there were definitely a lot of closeted guys on CL, as I have posted here before, my (gay) friends and I quickly figured out that the easiest way to quickly draw the hottest guys was to post an ad claiming to be a "straight curious jock, very discreet" with details like "GF out of town and looking to experiment" or "just got engaged and want to try this once before I settle down." You'd pull in lots of more masculine gay/bi guys and lots of closeted "straight" guys who were looking to hook up with other "discreet straight guys"

So not all the "straight" guys you blew were straight.

That's not to discount how many were living straight lives however. There were a lot of men who are now between the ages of say 45and 60 who came of age sexually at a time when gay sex = HIV = death, and so chose to get married or at least not engage in gay sex. By the late-00s however, things had changed and I think many of them were ready to revisit that side and CL was an easy and discreet way to do so. I remember there were a number of those guys whose ads would specify they would only get head with a condom on and seemingly there were enough guys willing to oblige them.

by Anonymousreply 6311/03/2020

Hottest scene I ever had off CL was two guys, both bottoms, who were looking for a "straight jock" to service.

They were good looking, in shape, maybe mid-20s (I was 27 or 28 I think) They both worked me over orally--first time I'd ever had two guys blowing me at the same time--and then I took turns fucking them. It was sort of like a porn movie, they were on the bed with their asses in the air making out while moved between them.

I was in vegas for a week and posted that I was a dominant top looking for muscle bottoms but I posted a long description about what I thought being dominant was - not angry verbal but controlling and no pain (in a nutshell it was more wordy)- no lie I got 7 responses with pics each guy hotter than the next. The first one I set up was this latin guy, probably 25 ish. He was ripped but short, about 5'7". I told him when he came to my room to not come in unless he was willing to be mine when the door closed. He came in, was super nervous. I told him to strip, he did without hesitation. Told him I needed to inspect him since I told him to shower and douche first. He was ripped as hell and hard as a rock before I even stood up. I walked around him, sniffed him, licked his ear and neck. Told him to bend over and I tongued his ass. told him he passed. I fucked the hell out of him that night and he was putty in my hands. Set up two other guys that week and the first guy came back three times.

One afternoon, I’m standing on the sofa with my dick in juniors mouth, bracing myself with my hands on the ceiling facing the carport when older guy unexpectedly comes in through carport. “Hi Jeff” was all I said and kept going.

We all ended up fucking around for a couple of years. Older guy was a great cook and we had lots of fun with other guys too. But I got divorced and they broke up and it kinda ruined the vibe.

by Anonymousreply 8811/24/2020

One of my best was an ex-NFL football player. No requests for identity. I don't even know who he was and we only ever exchanged first names. He never told me what team he played for and I never asked. Married and deeply closeted, he was a big tall guy (6'6"), had morphed into a dad bod, and had a nice, thick 8 inch cock. We became f-buds for about a year. One thing I loved about him is he'd take a whole afternoon off and we'd fuck 2-3 times with a break in between. He was a gentle giant.

I was sexually attracted to him and he certainly made me cum over and over, but there was nothing beyond that for me. He started to get attached. After about a year, I was going to move to a new city. He got really upset, said it was hard to find guys he trusted, and was kind of a dick for about the last month. He finally apologized and we fucked like rabbits that last week. The last day, he got emotional. I felt so bad for him, but at the same time he chose the easy, heterosexual life and suffered the consequences.

Here’s my best CL encounter that never happened.

A few years back, I met my sexual ideal at a bathhouse. I was his sexual ideal as well. The sex was electric. Turns out he was married and had a daughter. As we parted, he offered me his email, but I didn’t want to get involved with a married man. I just knew I would fall for him completely.

He said he was on CL in a suburb and if I ever wanted to contact him to look him up. Weeks went by and I had thought of him a lot. So, I looked at CL and found him. There was a picture of his gorgeous, hairy torso.

I hesitated for a few days and then decided I needed to see him again. So I go to CL—and lo and behold, it was the day CL ended its personals section! I’ve never found him, yet I still think about him a lot.

There were definitely many diamonds on CL if you mine'd for them. I don't know why CL got such a bad reputation for being a haven for uggos and crime ridden druggies. Sometimes if you asked for a Sean Cody caliber or porn(before the decline) caliber dude on an ad, you would actually get a few guys that fit the bill. And unlike Grindr these guys would usually entertain the possibility, chat with you and plan for a meetup. Definitely can't get like that any more via these apps. DL has the same people posting these days, the numbers game just isn't as great as CL. CL had magnitudes more, there were even desperate straight hot dudes that would entertain a gay hookup if they had a long enough dry spell on them getting women.

It sucks that everything good relating to hookups and porn came to an end these last three years. Republicans are superb at suppressing people in a thinly veiled moral concern i.e sex trafficking, abuse, children. Not a coincidence that everything good was removed during a Trump (Republican presidency).

Now we have to put up with games and invasive ads on these apps, and actually paying for amateur content via Onlyfans which everyone is jumping on now.

C was perfect for the closet/DL guy because all you needed was a web browser in incognito mode and a burner email account. No apps to install (and if you're married and share accounts, you can't download apps without alerting the wife). You could even get away with not sharing a photo if the other party was willing (and your stats made you sound hot enough).

My hottest encounter was with a minor league coach in town for a tournament. No pics exchanged, we met in the hotel parking garage to gauge if we were interested in each other (hell yeah I was). He was as close to my ideal man I've ever met: fit-fat hairy ginger with a short beard, hairy chest/cock/hole and a perfectly thick 6 incher that he buried in me all night long. Spent the night and we came three times together. Saw him once a year for 6 years. I still have our conversations saved in that burner email for when I need a good reminder.

I shared a few of my experiences in another thread....fuck if I remember what it was but it was just up in the last few weeks.

I was pretty new to town - moved to a smallish college town to work at the school - and the guy I hooked up with was the anchor for one of the news stations. Also hooked up with some coach of one of the university's sports teams. Not the head coach but a hot, wavy haired little fucker who was some assistant coach.

I had a few CL stinkers but man, between about 2005 and 2008 CL was my source for some of the hottest hookups I've ever had. There was a thing there, I guess, where guys would meet up with strangers and then those two together would look for a third, and I encountered that a few times, which was hot as fuck.

I don't know about gay or straight or what anyone's definition of any of that shit was, but I can tell you it was like shooting fish in a barrel if you liked men who were older than 25-30 and especially if you liked married men. And I did (and still do) enjoy older men and married men.

by Anonymousreply 11712/15/2020

It was crazy how wild guys on CL could be. I met a local guy in a restaurant parking lot (in a town/state I don't live in anymore) to check each other out. Hot fucker. 40s, hairy, gray temples, fat hairy cock, probably an even 7". Liked what we saw but neither of us had a place to go. He's a realtor and suggested we go to a house he was selling. Sure enough, his picture and name were on the sign outside. Ate my ass for a good 5 minutes and buried his cock balls deep in me. We fucked for a good half hour.

I looked him up when I got back home. rom the "House for Sale" sign I knew his name so it took less than 1 second to fin him and he's married with 3 kids. So risky on his part, but such a hot fucker. Haven't seen him since last time I was in that part of the country two years ago, but we chat on email every few months.

Met a cute guy late one night about 20 blocks away. Great kisser, hot little body, great ass and very big cock, although I topped him. We hooked up few times after that and decided we wanted to tag-team a bottom. We hung out together and posted for a third on Grindr, Scruff and CL and met a few. Hottest was one night at my apartment. Great looking bottom came over, and we took turns fucking and spit-roasting him. A one point, the bottom said "It's so fucking big" while my bud was just starting to enter him, and my bud says, "It gets bigger," which was one of the hottest things I've heard in person. And yes it did get bigger. We both fucked him like madmen, and a happy time was had by all.

One thing I liked about the straight and bi types on CL was that they were far more likely to give you accurate stats and pics than gay guys. Some of them may have taken a couple of years off their age but it was nowhere near as bad as what some gay guys try to get away with.

Lest you think all the married men are straight.....

One of my hottest CL hookups was when another CL hookup came back a second time and brought his friend. Said friend was one of my types - tall, lanky, nerdy with glasses. He looks like 80s porn star Dick Masters, and when he takes his pants off he looks like Dick there, too - huge. Shot a load down my throat and another one on my face while kissing the other dude.

Fast forward a few months to a gay men's chorus concert and a big MARY! comes around the corner and introduces her husband to one of the members and of course, the husband is Huge Hung Nerd Guy.

He freaked when he saw me. Bummer, I was hoping he'd come back around and top me.

This thread reminded me of a guy I hadnt thought about in years ! I had met him on CL and he was handily staying in a motel not too far from my house . I knock and he opens the door and I was instantly smitten . He was 6'4 or so ,very country ,with one of those goofy yet oddly sexy faces .Big ole ears sticking out ,adorable dimples. We get down to business and he tells me hes got a very sensitive cock so I had to be gentle. Whips out a very respectable uncut 6 incher and I start to go to town on it . Next thing I know this dude is almost howling ! hes screaming and moaning and writhing around like I had sulfuric acid in my mouth ! Ive been with guys who were sensitive before,but that was usually after the nut. I tried to be a trooper (he was cute after all) but I had to call it quits after he tried to stick his dick in my ass and couldnt control himself enough to even get the head in . Ive never seen anything like that before or since .Thank God !

One night I was chatting with a friend who was still in college and he tells me he hooked up with him through CL.

Yup, people on CL could say, “I can’t send you a pic but here are my stats and let’s meet at Starbucks or let’s meet in the front of X building at 2p”. Then they could be in a public place and see whether both liked they saw. You could even have a semi date and talk for awhile over email or IM before deciding. Not sure how that would ever happen now in the absence of CL.

Ha! I'd forgotten this one, because it wasn't mine.

But I was traveling and staying in a hotel for a conference. Having a coffee midday, maybe half a dozen other people around. We're in the hotel itself but there's a Starbucks counter nearby.

We hear raised voices and a very attractive youngish man, probably early 30s, very muscly, looked to possibly be Middle Eastern, says "You tricked me!"

He walks over to the grouping of little tables where I am and where an older man is a few tables away and shows me his phone. "This is who he said he was." A very handsome guy on the phone, looked a bit like a better groomed Chip from HGTV. He points to the man he met up with....who looks like Miss Lindsey Graham plus about 30 pounds.

He mutters "fucking Craigslist" and storms out.

The person who posted above about the anyonymity of CL is right. Anyone could look at CL, and no one would think twice about it. This is because the same website was also used to find a job, sell a car, whatever. The M4M link was always sitting there with millions of people visiting CL every day for other reasons. Of course people knew the M4M section was always there and could check it at any time without needing to go to any specialized gay website that might attract attention. Nothing like that these days.

I've given a lot of thought to the end of Craigslist and what came after.

IMO CL M4M was already in decline for a few years before CL pulled the plug on it. Warning this may become a blog post. Hooking up on CL was already becoming more difficult and frustrating, by about 2011 or 2012 at least. Not because I am fat or fug, but because the demographics of internet users were changing.

Millennials brought to the internet a large cargo of neuroses including social anxiety, body dysmorphia, and selfie obsession, along with a general lack of manners. Ghosting, butthole selfies and demands for portfolios of pics esp. face pics before hooking up became much more common.

Alongside this was the explosion of flavor of the month porn and the appification of hooking up. People suddenly had a need to claim ownership of a number of strange kinks without understanding that most people simply want to fuck and suck. Apps reduced communication further, which some loved, but it made it difficult for people who were being careful and prudent to size up others. Of course millennials thought that face pics were the solution to everything; and if you didn't provide a face pic, you were a serial killer or otherwise unacceptable as a partner.

New disrespectful mores cropped up including not providing basic stats, refusing to answer basic questions by ignoring them, and ghosting and flaking becoming typical, even expected behavior.

Then kink and drugs became more normalilzed. One had to continually guard oneself against closet trannies, closet piss, shit, and fisting freaks, and meth heads, often wrapped up in the same person. Mentally ill people with little to do other than troll online was another hazard.

Millennials and Zs discovered they could demand money and drugs for sex, and Boomers discovered they could demand sex with people one-third their age in exchange for drugs and money. Whereas sex used to be the common ground that brought people together on CL M4M, by 2018 many people there were engaging in various hustles with sex as a secondary or tertiary concern.

By 2018 when CL M4M went offline, it was already a cesspool. I was briefly vainly hopeful when Doublelist came on the scene that things might improve. But of course the freaks, addicts, crazies and hustlers were the first people to show up there. Like CL, Doublelist's auto-mod doesn't work well, and one is treated to multiple posts by the same people hour after hour, day and night.

I was in a hotel in Paris. I had two very hot encounters on a 4 day trip. The first was a very nervous American guy, college aged, white guy, tall, I'd say 6'2, brown hair and eyes, taut, milky skin, freckles. He was shaking a little as I sucked his 7" and I told him I was a little nervous too and it was okay. He ended up bending down and making out with me. He asked if he could fuck me and he was a passionate and great fuck. he did the reach around, which he said was something he had been wanting to do for a long time. We took a shower after and then he fucked me again. We kept in contact on CL and had plans to meet up again but I lost his email when they shut it down :(

On that same trip, a hot, French daddy came by. He spoke almost no English, which is weird for a Parisian. He was in his late 40s, very sexy, and had a wedding ring on. When I was facing my laptop to put some music on, he grabbed my jeans, pulled them down and ate my ass like he was devouring escargot. He talked dirty to me (or passionately - not sure - I don't speak French) in my ear, nibbling it, kissing my neck, while he fucked me in doggie, missionary and then back in doggie. He pulled my hair when he was coming and I also came, hands free. I lost his email when CL shut it down too, those fuckers.

by Anonymousreply 15812/18/2020

R156 You really nailed it. Something weird happened around that time.

I made a comment about the prevalence of "edgers" the other day - I mean, good for anyone who finds what they like but it seemed to shift from "we're two men, let's hook up" to more of a let's discuss things to death and then I'll beat off thing, partly because of technology and partly the millennial thing. I remember an indie paper or gay paper in Toronto running a long article about it and it really captured the shift. There was no openness to the experience and just appreciating the moment anymore, it had to be litigated for every possible whim, desire or fetish until it just died a frustrated death.

That's also the time, around 5-6 years ago, when I started noticing really disturbing shit out there on various sites (even before CL shut down). Back in the early print personal ads/phone sex days of the 80s, you'd hear weird fetishes, massive drug intake and or fucked up pedo shit one in a million times. Now that seems to be way too often. I think it must be meth that is fucking with people's brains, but I steer clear. It makes me want to puke.

r156 I'm seeing it now sadly. Many people plugging IG or OnlyFans in the apps. They are only looking for clout and a quick money making opportunity now. Some people wouldn't even meet or chat with you without you subscribing to their OnlyFans :/ Any average joe seems to escort or seek a sugar daddy now. Overall there seems to be an explosion in asexuality and hypergamy. And if you do manage to meet up then the person either browses their phone during sex or records it for whatever (most of the time monetary) reasons.

Hookups are no longer easy and fun. Peak was early 2010s indeed. Everything just fell apart around 2012-2013 when sites like IG and Twitter rose to prominence and YouTube started paying people to be annoying, misleading, and click baity.

We get to talking about why I am in town etc and he figures out we went to the same high school. He thinks he remembers me and we laugh and share a joint. Then we fuck again and he wants me to spend the night. I tell him I can't, staying with folks for holidays - he asks how long and we continue over the next few days to hook up.

I once hooked up with a 20-something kid from Russia who had moved to San Francisco and was working at Google. He had described himself as "bi-curious," but said he had never done anything with a guy.

So he came over, and I was happy with what I saw. Tall - about 6'2", lean, good body, but not overly muscled, just the right amount of body hair. He was very nervous and said he just wanted to jack off. So I put on some porn and we sat on the couch next to each other watching it. He started stroking his cock through his pants, and I followed suit. I could tell he wasn't going to be the first to pull his cock out, so I went ahead and pulled mine out.

Shortly after that, he unzipped his pants and took his cock out. It was really long and thick and uncut. I said, "Damn! Your cock is huge!" He acted surprised that I said that and went, "Really? You think so?" He got more comfortable after that and he eventually let me suck him off.

After it was all over and he was cleaning up, he said to me, "Do you really think my dick is big?" as I watched his now flaccid dong swinging like a pendulum between his legs. I affirmed that indeed, his dick was big. He seemed to be really happy about that. It was like he really had no idea he was hung.

I never saw him again, but I'm hoping he went out and let other guys enjoy that big swinging piece of meat of his.

R156 and R159 -- your theory is off.

What killed CL M4M was Grindr, Scruff and similar apps that made it easier to find guys nearby.

It was like ordering pizza--you could find a guy who was 5 or 10 minutes away and he'd be over and blowing you 15 minutes later. (If you were in a hotel, even easier--you could often find someone a few floors down.)

Instant gratification and no paper trail of emails and all that.

That's what killed CL M4M and the freaks you got were the ones who had not found Grindr yet.

Married now, but from what I read on DL and hear from friends, Grindr seems to be in a bad place now too, far more flakes and freaks than five years ago

There was manhunt before grindr and scruff which was just as efficient, and CL thrived then.

R174 Agreed. Grindr was very popular when CL was thriving. I always preferred hooking up via CL; the Grindr queens were insufferable.

by Anonymousreply 17512/22/2020

Popular apps varied from city to city but Grindr, which was the first mobile app to really take off, reached peak popularity in the early/mid-00s at which point CL was sort of old news

by Anonymousreply 17612/22/2020

R174, R175, the modern apps (Grindr, Scruff), not the web-based sites like Manhunt, Squirt, and Adam4Adam, were different in a few ways. On the apps, communication is very constrained with only drop downs and very brief text permitted.

After Apple refused to allow these apps on their app store because X-rated, Grindr demanded G pics from users, reinforcing millennial/Z selfie compulsions. Young people, who have always been known for lacking good judgement, started posting face pics in their meth-and-kink loaded-hole NSA profiles, patting themselves on the back and calling it progress.

Pics as a primary communication tool reinforces vanity and looksism, creating a particularly virulent variety of shallow gay.

There is also the issue that it was M/Z who used the apps first and most, and their general interpersonal reticence set the tone for interactions on these apps.

Earlier web-based apps usually have plenty of space to explain oneself, and an older more gregarious generation expects to have actual (online) conversation with people before meeting for sex or whatever.

Fortunately I don't care for young meat much, so I don't feel like I'm missing out.

I believe I posted about this before (in a celeb hook-ups post). Anyway:

I am crazy for a certain type of guy: dark hair, muscled, hairy. So I posted on Craigslist looking for such. One guy replied, I asked for a picture, which he sent but of just from the neck down. Gorgeous body, hairy, nice cock. I went to his condo and who should open the door (wearing nothing but shorts) but Joe Penny, of Riptide and TV movie of the week fame. This was after all that, though, but he was still hot as fuck.

I played like I had no idea who he was, although he could have seen the surprise on my face if his apartment had not been so dark - think nightlights here and there. Just enough to see our way around, but when he first answered the door the light from the hallway might as well have been a spotlight. I was there for just a blow & go, but spent a while admiring that body I'd seen and fantasized about on TV, using my fingers and tongue. He barely spoke, just moaned and grunted. I felt him get quite hard and then he yanked down his shorts and pushed my head toward it. Before long I was swallowing his cream, I'll never forget the taste, it was almost sweet.

I jacked off while rubbing his still hard cock in my face, then he rushed me out, saying he loved it and would contact me for more, if I wanted. Of course I said yes, but never heard from him again.

While this is my "BEST" Craigslist story, I've had better, including some that led to long-term relationships.

I was visiting Lexington, KY trying to see if I could score some college dick. I was only a year out of college at the time so I had high hopes since Grindr wasn't producing any hot takers. I ended up getting a message from a 30 something mailman. By the end of CL run they'd show the person's email address if they responded back to your message, instead of that CL address. Yahoo started adding names to emails so a lot of guys didn't realize that the email recipient would get whatever name was linked to the account. Often times these guys weren't using burners so their entire name would show up. This was around 2016.

Before I got to settle on meeting the post man I found his Facebook and pictures. He didn't lie about his stats. He was mid-30s, a dad bod, two young kids and a homely wife. Not what I was looking for but I was horny all morning and I said what the hell.

He ended up being the silent type when he arrived. He want to get right down to business. I brought him into the room and he pulled off my basketball shorts and underwear to start jerking my cock. He before removing my shirt then his clothes. I just remember him pushing me onto the bed, no words, just action. He was dry humping me while I was in missionary position before presenting his 5-6 inch cock. I sucked him like my life depended on it. Beyond his belly I could just see him gaze at me with cold eyes. It was intense and the silence was throwing me off a bit.

Finally he asked me if I get fucked. I told him usually top but I was addicted to his dominance and said we could try it. Big mistake on my part as someone that has never bottomed. He wasn't very patient. he fingered me for a bit and it burned despite the hotel lotion. I only received 10 minutes of that prep before he had me on my stomach with his cock lined up at my hole. I remember like three jabs before he hit his mark and I saw black. Worst pain of my life, I had a tough time bucking his big ass off of me. I ran into the bathroom holding my sore hole. I don't understand how anyone in prison survives anal rape cause that little intrusion was the worst pain of my life.

Anyway, after 15 minutes and lot of half-assed apologies on his part I decide that I won't let a good cock go to waste. I offer him head. He's back straddling my chest using my head to go deeper. The guy was really aggressive. When he gets close I tell him that I don't want to swallow it or get it on my face. He said i owe it to him since I didn't give up my ass. He's not letting off of me and truthfully I did want to be treated this way. I just remember him shooting a massive load on my face, in my mouth, and a large amount hitting the wall leaving a big stain.

He quickly cleaned up and left. I know this story sounds a bit rapey or not wonderful. The anal wasn't great, but I realize that as a top (ideally vers) I jerk off to that encounter because it was the first time someone else dominated me in the bedroom. I've been looking for similar sort of dominate men but I can't seem to find them. We didn't discuss being dominate or any anal before hand but IDK it was just one of the hottest encounter of my young life. He wasn't physically my ideal but that added to the naughtiness of it all because it wasn't planned or litigated.

what was amazing about CL was the specificity. You wrote your stats (height, weight, ethnicity, etc) and then what you were looking to do. And people would respond if they were into that and if their pics were worthwhile, you could respond and take the conversation from there. It allowed guys to be more adventurous and it led to a better mix and match than Grindr type sites.

Plus, the guys on there were generally looking for RIGHT NOW, as opposed to apps where 3/4 of the guys are on it at work or just killing time while watching TV.

r198 I think in the early Grindr days a lot of them used it for RIGHT NOW. But the advent of turning it into a "dating app" for friends and relationships muddied it. The rise of social media, chasing followers/clout ruined it. Allowing bots, whores, and trannies to run around with no moderation absolutely killed any aspect of its usefulness.

I went to vegas with a co-worker for AWS Re:Invent. We are both gay and out. He is a very tall (6'6") but heavy set guy. He also has, from what I am told, is a very large dick. Imagine my surprise when I saw hot guy after hot guy either headed to or leaving his room while we were there. Finally, we were out at dinner one night and I said "Man you got them lined up, what did you just post a pic of your dick?" He laughed and said "basically" Then he showed me his CL ad. It was brutally honest about him being fat, out of shape and not the most handsome guy but that he had a ten-inch thick cock and could fuck like a freight train and he had a type. He loved hot muscle guys and that was all he wanted to hear from. And there was a picture of his cock. I was sweating when I saw it. Hell if i had a few more drinks in me I might have offered to play with it but we are work friends. Then he showed me the reply, with pics. I mean hot ass men, all wanting to be plowed by this fat giant with a big dick. Half of them were married too. He told me it never failed on CL - you put out there excatly what you want and what you offer and you usually get it. He was so sad when the m4m went away.

I like Sniffies because it shows an approximate where people are on the map. It's like if Grindr, Craigslist, and Google Maps had a child. The only issue is that there isn't a lot of people on to it yet, so you won't get the best of Grindr and Craigslist yet. I do like that it's strictly a hookup app so the chances of games are minimal. They have verification which means no bots, and it let's people avoid being catfished. They have anonymous mode for the DL, married crowd.

I think if Sniffies makes an official mobile app they be far more popular but alas the type of content they allow won't fly for Apple's Store nor would it be the best moment to have broader reach with the current NSFW/porn purge happening across all social apps.

Grindr was much less hassle than CL--it made getting a blowjob, as has been noted many times on DL, as easy as ordering Chinese food and often just as fast--I could decide I was horny and 15 minutes later there'd be a guy on his knees in front of me.

That was in the early days of the app when guys were on there to actually hook up.

CL was great for guys in hotels because you could search by keywords and age range and if you put in words like "bi" "jock" "masculine" "discreet" you'd get a whole bunch of hot guys responding.

Op I need to add one of the worst things from CL, missing hot dick. I remember being up around 10 or 11p one night trying to find some dick. One guy messaged me and sounded like a hot late 20s guy. Like I said in my novel long post, r193 (sorry about that), I could see the name attached to his yahoo email address when he responded directly to my email. While waiting for his replys, which took about 30 min, since he was waiting for his wife to fall asleep. I looked up every guy in the city with his name. It was a fun little game. I had three guys that I thought could be him. One was gorgeous, the other two were not my type.

I ended up falling asleep after sending a request for a face pic. I woke up at 7am to a message from11:45 the previous evening with the photo of the gorgeous guy that I was hoping was on the other end. I tried reconnecting but either he was no longer horny or he was busy. Hate missing out on great dick.

I also hooked up with a sexy 19 year old that had just gotten out of jail a two weeks before our encounter. I was doing summer school so invited him to my dorm room. It made me feel bad because we were the same age and I just felt like I lucked into a comfortable life while he had a rough go at things. Once his pants came off I got over that feelings.

For a young guy he could ride a dick like a champ. He claimed to be straight (sure, Jan) and said that he never put out behind bars. I didn't get a good look at his hole, but my dick slid in like butter. Maybe he was turning tricks, but I didn't have to pay. Say what you will, but that boy was a top's dream. Sexy trade that was going to meet up with his girlfriend later that day. She wouldn't stop calling him while I was busy blowing his back out. Super hot encounter.

Waiting for the ports isn't a big deal. That gives just enough time to give room numbers or set a meeting location. I was told on another forum that the best cock at sea can be found on the cheap cruises the leave TX, GA, and FL. Lots of working class guys, young guys, or family men loking for a cheap vacation where they can drink and eat till their heart's content. The poster even said that he had great luck with a lot of guys on their honeymoons (how sad). After a day or two, fucking their wives is apparently not enough. They seem more interested in playing maybe as means to reject the new confines of marriage.

The guy said hit the casinos at night and plan to spend some time playing a slow social games like Blackjack. That way you can watch your mark hit the drinks and feel him out. Another tip were the bars. Make friends with the bartender (leave good tips after every drink) to ensure you are well taken care off. The bartender may recognize your game but they won't be a cock block since we aren't talking about breaking any laws. Sometimes they may even encourage you since you'll be nightly entertainment as they watch you shoot your shot at one guy after another. Finally, if you REALY want ocean dick he suggested staying onboard during the excursions. You can either catch a crew member (not suggested) or a really frustrated guy staying back away from their family or travel buddies.

If all else fails, hit up the male only steam rooms at the gym between 4-7 pm any night of the week. That's the time when the guys will excuse themselves for a workout before dinner. Grindr will work, so I'm told, but not during the entire voyage unless you pay for an internet package.

I'm willing to give these tips a shot, for science of course.

I used to work the graveyard shift at a call center and I would get on CL about an hour after I got off work. I would put up an ad saying I just got off work and was looking for a fwb to help me wind down. Always received a lot of replies of dudes wanting to get off before they went in to work.

My favorite was a guy who was in town for about 6 weeks and staying at one of those extended stay places. The first time I went to his room and when he opened the door I was a bit disappointed. He was a lot shorter than he said he was and obviously a bit older. Not ugly but not quite handsome (he sort of reminded me of a young Joe Pesci). Very late-30s Italian type wearing a t-shirt and a pair of cargo shorts. He invites me in and I sit next to him on the couch while he starts up some porn. I'm not sure what he wants at this point since he is just sitting there grabbing his crotch and staring at the TV. He had said it was 6" and thick, but I just assumed that was standard "I'm average" blustering.

Then he whips it out and good lord! It was the thickest cock I had ever seen. Thicker than a beer can and it just keeps getting harder as he strokes. I whip out my thoroughly average dick and he sees I'm hard and starts stroking me, so I return the favor. He pre-cums like a leaky faucet and is moaning a lot. He takes off his shirt and underneath he is actually quite built and not as hairy as I had imagined. I couldn't resist so I tried to suck him off. He was so into it and had his stocky legs around my neck while pushing me down on his cock which I could barely fit in my mouth. It didn't last too long before he shot a mouthful. He then laid back and told me to cum on his chest while he played with my balls.

I know a lot of you will think this was EST, but it's the honest truth. After he asked if I would come back and I said sure. He pulls out the most disorganized day planner I have ever seen with receipts and sticky notes bursting from it and puts me down for 6:30a twice a week. He asks me if that looked okay in this plain businesslike demeanor and I said sure. After about 4 or 5 visits he let me fuck him, which made him cum in even less time. The last time he spent a bit more time and we played around edging for about 45 minutes before getting to it. Then he left back to AZ I think.

One guy's wife did show up before we started anything and he played me off as a racquetball partner. I went along and we ended up having regular hookups at the gym in the apartment complex under the guise of playing racquetball. There were a lot of married Army guys that lived there and we scored a few threesomes in the sauna with them.

R245 that’s very interesting. Did you ever worry about getting an STD Andy having to explain it to your wife like someone above mentioned? Just curious how married guys handle that aspect. Also, hot store with the Saundra married Army guys. How did you get things started with them? Did you find the, on CL as well?

There were a number of CL ads back in the day from guys wanting head with a condom on.

I would assume those were from married guys who did not want an STD R246

I was single and played with married men for the better part of 20 years but never once had an STD.

However, I was almost never fucked and I usually had a good "spidey sense" about which man was careful and which one(s) fucked everything that moved.

by Anonymousreply 24812/30/2020

R245, I was pretty lucky. But I didn't get around as much then as now. I was pretty picky for that reason. The town I was living in was next to a base and most of the guys that showed up in the sauna were open to hooking up. One of them turned me on to using the tanning rooms. The beds each had their own room with some chairs and a table and weren't monitored closely. I did arrange some hookups there through CL, but moved shortly after I started doing that.

I made friends with a guy when I was in Puerto Vallarta on vacation with my BF. He worked for a company in the Midwest but I guess when he was first working for them, he worked in San Diego within a mile or two of Camp Pendleton. He said it was amazing and also terribly addictive, and it got more intense after Craigslist. He almost lost his job after sneaking out early a few times because some NAVY Seal wanted to meet him at a specific time to fuck him.

I can sorta see it. I mean, all that amazing military dick. It would be glorious for a while but I think like any drug it just gets to the point where you need more and more.

R254 He was attractive in sort of a generically bland way, if that makes sense....I think he would fit into the type for a wide range of guys, and he was also just a smidge on the androgynous side, which may have also played into who he attracted.

C251 Camp Pendleton is very far north of San Diego. It’s sort of on its own with not much surrounding it except open fields and ocean. Maybe Grindr would work there if you were driving by.

I’m r249 and I was next to an army base, not marines. After a while, most of them get kinda boring. I don’t really get into non-reciprocal hook ups. Not usually, anyway. And a lot of them were like that. Of course, I was younger and thought I was the shit. My attitude would probably be a little different today.

by Anonymousreply 26512/30/2020

r261 I imagine military has its own classified listing sort of deal? idk I have never been in that situation but everything else is insular there must surely be a military for military hook up post somewhere whether my listing, word of mouth, whatever. I don't see much military guys on base looking for a hookup. Generally getting connected with someone off base is more difficult especially with COVID running around and their orders to stay on base.

R255, I've been on Doublelist since its first week. In the beginning it had T4M and M4T sections, but they got yanked after only a few weeks. Doublelist said on the site that it was because there was too much prostitution and drug activity advertised.

It is true as R257 said, that trans are basically training wheels for closet cases. I've never met a tranny chaser who wouldn't also have sex with men under the right conditions.

Via Craigslist M4M, I hooked up with:

a guy who ran unlicensed sex clubs from the apartments and houses he lived in who fucked me the best I've ever been fucked;

two hot young dudes whose asses I ate like pie;

This isn't a CL story but once, when I was out in the sticks, I turned on Grindr, just to see what I could see. One guy, very cute, wanted me to drive 30 miles to his trailer and fuck him. And I shouldn't worry, he said, his dad is a heavy sleeper.

by Anonymousreply 28201/06/2021

R156, agreed.

I would also add that around 2011 there was another shift. M4M ended up being filled up with ads for paid services, many of them very spammy. This started because Erotic Services was shut down, and all the 'massage' whores and their companies started advertising on Therapeutic Services (where I would advertise for my own legit massage services). Then, whether I wanted to sell my services, or do a trade with another massage therapist (we do that, and yes sometimes it can lead to sex), I had to filter out tons of posts containing Wingding font in the subject lines to grab your attention.


When CL disbanded Therapeutic Services (for that exact reason), the whore trolls invaded M4M...further diluting the value of people looking for a simple fuck.

I came here to say most married men seem to moved on to either Adam4Adam or Sniffies. I go for Adam4Adam since they have all features and filters you want absolutely for free. The crowd on Adam4Adam tend to skew married, middle-aged to older with most of them athletic, muscle, in shape. Somewhat of a poz community on there. So prepare for that.

r291 They are mutually exclusive. It's just in my area there's a sizable number of poz guys. Yours may vary, but all the married guys are on there, I haven't seen any of them on the apps, might be because a desktop site is easier to hide around with rather than an app on your phone.

R306 I've hooked up with a few straight guys on Doublelist (one of 'em is coming back for a j/o session on Friday), but it's not nearly as popular as Craigslist was.

With Craigslist, I could post an ad and get five or six replies instantly. With Doublelist, I'm lucky to get one or two.

R307 that’s lucky that you had his real email address. Unfortunately many people who used CL can’t reach out to anyone they knew from it, because they only have the CL email relay, which obviously doesn’t work anymore. Tell us how it goes.

R308, I think that’s because doublelist requires a phone number, and many straight married guys don’t want to register a phone number to meet a guy?

I had one guy that was totally my type (older, light salt and pepper, huge biceps) give me the up and down and then flashed a big shit eating grin. Damn. I'm sure it would have been a fish in the barrel moment that weekend on CL, too.

We sat around pounding beers for about half and hour as he tried to enlist me in the cause. When he said he couldn’t hold it any more we went into my bathroom and I got in my claw foot tub.
