Horny Straight Guy


Posted Oct 29 2023:
Recently after work, as I walked on the south end of Benderson Trail, was approached by a guy who'd seen my package. There wasn't anyone else around since dusk was approaching so he followed me to my car, got in the passenger side, and gave me head without reciprocating. Only time it happened to me but I needed it!

Horny Runner

I run at Benderson. Keeps me slender and fit. Also tends to make me horny so often afterwards I jack off in my car in a secluded place in the south end parking lot.

Recently another guy who had been running saw and joined me in my front seat. I'm hung and was rock hard so he liked what he saw. Gave me one of the best blow jobs ever! So it still seems to happen there.

There is still action here, but lots of other park users. Not as isolated as in the past.

There is no longer any gravel pit. Please take it off.

Google and local sources indicate that this is now Nathan Benderson Park. Please let us know if it's cruisy. ~ Editor

Nice lake and fairly deserted vibe but I hooked up with a classic married guy ? super-preppy older guy with a shiny new Mercedes, nice pressed shirt and fancy shoes. It didn't take long before he had my mouth wrapped around his nice thick hard cock. We fooled around down by the picnic table. He shot a fat load and then ran out of their scared but satisfied.

I love going there to lay out naked, toward the back. I also like hooking up but back at my house and not in a risky area.

Heads Up!
I was here the other day. It was pretty empty. An undercover cop pulled up next to me the other day and said he knew why I was there and if I came back I would be arrested. Be careful, guys. I won't be back!

Great place in Sarasota. I was there for a second time on the 1st and the county has torn out all of the hidey holes for instant sex so it's a bit quiet now except for the old regulars. It was great for the working crowd. Perhaps it will be again soon.

Heads Up!
I went into the woods by the boat ramp with another guy. We just finished when the Florida Park Rangers came down the road, took out licenses and held us there for about twenty minutes. They let us go, but with some threatening remarks.

Heads Up!
Last Tuesday there was a cop in the bushes watching all who went up to the boat ramp! He left about 12:15 pm, so be careful!

I have been twice and find it is a great place to suck and be sucked. Be careful, as there are people who use the area for family fun. Midday during the week is best.


Posted May 24 2003:
This place is perfect for everything. I sucked off a guy in plain view in the middle of the day. Guys really like to strip down in their cars and show off. It is very secluded and you can see cars coming from a long way off.
