"I just heard about Leonardo DiCaprio's 25-year rule. His loss. You don't know what you're missing."—Dionne Warwick tweeted her disdain over reports that DiCaprio does not date anyone over 25.

Where were you during Queen Elizabeth II's funeral? Were I in London, I'd have surely been at the Pleasuredrome—a health spa, sauna, cafe, bar and … well, it's a gay bathhouse. As is common in these places, they play continuous music and show "videos." But they broke with tradition for QEII's funeral, stating, "As a mark of respect to her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, no music will be played within the spa and no films will be shown. The cinema and the main screen will show live events around Her Late Majesty's funeral throughout the day. Guests at the venue are invited to join us in a toast to His Majesty King Charles III. Drinks—both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, including champagne—will be provided at the cost of the management of Pleasuredrome Spa for the loyal toast." I suspect this gesture would have been appreciated by several royals … to say nothing of scores of staff.

About 20 years ago, I hosted Cape Cod Pride, and we had one lone protestor standing by the entrance with a picket sign. I felt so sorry for him, I offered him some food and drink from the stage—which he declined. I was reminded of this anecdote when I heard about Lil Nas X at MGM Music Hall in Boston. He, too, had some anti-gay protestors outside. Before the show, he tweeted, "Just told my team to send them pizza, this is really good promo!" He then added, "Update: they didn't want the pizza but I accidentally fell in love with one of the homophobic protestors." The next day he wrote the following: "Can't stop thinking about the cute homophobic guy that was protesting my concert last night. I just know we had a connection. I miss him so much man. I'm nothing without him."

And now, the story you've all been waiting for. It was recently discovered that a weatherman was engaging in some sexual activity online. Erick Adame was on Spectrum NY1 for five years. He claims to have been fired after somebody sent his boss screenshots from an explicit Chaturbate session. Adame posted the following: "My psychiatrist calls my actions 'compulsive behavior,' others would call them reckless, stupid or brazen. I'm not in a position to argue with any of these descriptions. … On this site, I acted out my compulsive behaviors, while at home, by performing on camera for other men. It was 100% consensual on both of our parts. I wasn't paid for this, and it was absurd of me to think I could keep this private. Nonetheless, my employer found out and I was suspended and then terminated." Erick has gone so far as to file a suit against a website (not ours) where the images were posted. He wants to somehow track down whoever took the screenshot. He claims the photos were not only sent to his boss, but also his mother! Except, perhaps it wasn't just being gay or having sex on camera that led to his dismissal.

TheDesk.net has tracked down one of Erick's actual broadcasts (some of which is also available on our website), and it is considerably more explicit than previously reported. On it, Adame gives out his cell phone number, his home address (in NJ), tells people his door is unlocked, and encourages viewers to let themselves in and have their way with him en masse. "At this point, I'm pretty sure my first name, last name, address, has all fucking been out there, and this pussy still hasn't been fucked," he laments. Referencing his high-profile job, he says, "I think it'd be hot if my boss saw me. I would love my boss to fuck me on camera." I suspect HR would have something to say about that! While this vividly colors the tale (or tail), one person did bring up an interesting point: "Am I really reading this correctly? They fired Erick Adame for having virtual sex, even though [the] NYC government literally advised people to have virtual sex during the pandemic? What?!"

In a related story, rock drummer Tommy Lee has joined OnlyFans. It was only a matter of time.

Let's end with a sports-related "Ask Billy" question. Peter in Chicago writes, "I saw some photos of a hot guy in a Speedo pitching during a baseball game. Who, what, where, when and why?"

It took place at a game between the Orix Buffaloes and the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks—I say as if I know what I'm talking about. They have a tradition of inviting a "special guest" to throw the first pitch. In this case, it was Naotaka Yokokawa, a 28-year-old bodybuilder. He was wearing the Orix Buffaloes uniform, but stripped on his way to the mound … as one does. Clad in the skimpiest of undies and a baseball cap, he let 'er rip, and the audience went wild. Admittedly, the pitch was also wild, but his form is impressive—as you'll see on BillyMasters.com .

When a pitcher can't deliver, it's definitely time to end yet another column. Seems no matter where you are, a good pitcher is hard to find—ask Adame! Maybe they're all on www.BillyMasters.com—the site that has a little bit of everything. If you have a question—or a sexual act you'd like to engage in—drop a note to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before I give out MY cell number! So, until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
