The article focuses on disappointing sex between gay couples. The author says that disappointment could be physique-related, like frustration in the body of the partner, or an emotional letdown. He advises that one should not place unrealistic demands on his sex partner or himself because a guy can miss out what is actually taking place if he is caught up in expectations.
