Although this may be the first day of September, 2017, the Summer season isn’t over just yet. The season do not officially change until September 22, despite what the meteorologists preach. The early days of this month often can be among the hottest of the year and the humidity doesn’t simply pack-up and disappear because the calendar shows a new month. Like all the other seasons, Summer has a habit of lingering also. It’s too soon to put away the sunscreen and light a fire in your hearth.
As a teenager, I was always fascinated and probably borderline obsessed with the exotic men that I met and/or observed around me. As Alex, my identical twin brother, and I had accepted and acknowledged our same gender attraction since our early teen years, I thought nothing out of the ordinary about this fact. I felt it was simply part of my sexual exploration and self-discovery. One culture that I particularly remember having fantasies about were the Polynesians of the South Pacific Ocean. These included the men from Samoa, Tonga, Hawaii, the Marquesas Islands, the Maori (the indigenous peoples of New Zealand), Tahiti, Tuvalu, Kiribati, Tokelau and other islands. The Polynesians are noted for their seafaring skills as well as their intricate body tattoos.
