STRIPPED: Peter Andrew Danzig

My coming out story is …
My friend Danielle. I decided to tell her I was gay at a football game, in which she responded, “So that’s why you’ll never make out with me!” It was sobering to have that moment met with a laugh and a smile. My mom responded similarly, telling me it didn’t matter as long as I found love.

If I’m checking out a guy, chances are he has …
Beautiful eyes. It’s all about eye contact for me. That reveals a lot about a person. Also, pecs are kind of my thing. So there is that, too.

My worst date was …
Someone took me out for ice cream and then told me 15 minutes in he had purchased a hotel room. Ummmm … no. It was the shortest date ever. I’d say 20 minutes in total — enough time to finish my ice cream!

My coming-out story is …
Sitting at dinner with my mother and suddenly telling her I was gay. She left the table, went to her bedroom, and I thought, She will never talk to me again. After a couple of hours she came out and said, “You are my son and I will love you no matter what.”

If I’m checking a guy out, chances are he has …
An athletic body, big arms, wide shoulders, thick legs, a nice butt, dark hair, big eyes, and a killer, mischievous smile.

I feel sexy wearing …
Briefs. The smaller the better.

I think love is …
Like a tree that you have to nurse and water every day if you want to keep it alive. When you stop watering the tree, it dies. You cannot expect to get love if you don’t give love.
