The heat generated on this American holiday isn't all oohs and ahhs. There are those that
just can't stand it. Ideas for this call: firemen who dread the holiday because of the
accidents, once such accident brings love; military men who have lost their faith in
liberty and independence after serving in war but find hope and love on that day from a
patriotic hunk (could have PTSD); a stressed-out ER attending that has just seen one too
many burns from fireworks; or maybe a grumpy guy hates the noise of fireworks and has to
go next door to tell his neighbor to knock off shooting off rockets every three minutes, only
to have sparks fly in another way.

So many think they've outgrown dressing up. That there are no more tricks
to be played. That it's all a bunch of hookiness. But what if they meet a
real vampire/witch/werewolf? Or what about that special human dressed in a
to die for costume that brings all the "tricks and treats" back? A sexy
Leather-n-Lace party that lets all the inhibitions go and brings back the
magic of the night?

Thanksgiving is a time of turkey and mashed potatoes and pies and
family...but what if you don't have a family? What if you don't
have a home? What if you're in the military stationed overseas?
It's not all smiles and kisses for everyone in November...

Snowballs, Icicles, and Fire?
Those holidays in December bring smiles to everyone's faces,
right? Maybe not. Some (not just that famous Scrooge) have frozen
their hearts to the joys of Hanukkah, Yuletide, Kwanzaa and
Christmas. They've decided to skip the holidays this year but just
maybe there's a special someone that's going to show up and heat
up those winter nights...

What's That Exhibit?
There are so many different museums out there these days: art, science, history, play. What happens when the doors are closed? What goes on during a tour? Or how about a fundraiser? The guys working and visiting these halls of entertainment and education are often seen as “the geeks” or “the bookworms”. What if they’re not? Or what if that’s what makes them special?

Someone to Savor
Older men need love too. It isn't always about the young lovers. Just because a man is over forty doesn't mean he's "lost it". Like fine wine, they should be savored. It could be and older/younger relationship or two older men finding love. First time relationships or guys who are finding love for a second time.
