Read his book 'The Way of Men' upon Roosh's recommendation and thoroughly enjoyed it.

However, some reviews, particularly of his other book 'Androphillia' allude to him being gay?

Does anyone know how true this is?

Yes, unless I'm remembering incorrectly, he is gay. I used to frequent another forum he posted at.

Makes sense. I couldn't figure out what he meant by this in past.

Ironic that a gay man wrote one of the manliest books I've ever read.

RE: Jack Donovan
maybe its just me but gay men have it made. no kids no marriage and sex is pretty much easy as shit to come by. being a straight guy makes things way more difficult especially if you want the player lifestyle.

I concur, the book is excellent.

His sexuality isn't an issue for me on the grounds that he is as he is outlined in Androphillia - homosexual, but not defined by the camp, materliastic and bitchy archetype of a gay man.

Especially lately. Giggidy.

When you get right down to it, when it comes to sex, homos are just men without women getting in the way. They know what they want and they're practical about it. Bronan the Barbarian is a good pal IRL, and I have been having an ongoing discussion with him about whether or not homos need any kind of "game." It's not anything I'd write about in a book or essay, because I'd rather people focused on my work regarding masculinity--which is what I actually care about. But it is funny.

Homos have location-based phone apps for hooking up now. I put up a pic, set my status to "online" and laughed my ass off as my phone blew up all day long with dudes asking what I wanted to do and when. It took a week and a half for me to sift through them and set up a regular thing with a guy who I would consider a 9.

I wouldn't want any of my straight friends to cross that line, because there are downsides--like having to actually talk to most homos, or being associated with them, or having to defend your masculinity more often.

But yeah, it is A LOT easier to be a "player."

RE: Jack Donovan
Welcome to the forum, Jack. I see you've been registered here for almost a year and are just now getting aroud to your first post.

I haven't read your book yet, but it's been vouched for by Roosh and several forum members, so it's definitely on my to-read list.

Thanks. I doubt I'll have much to contribute, for obvious reasons, and I can't afford to spend too much time on forums (and away from other writing), but I saw this thread in my web site stats so I chimed in. Roosh has always been very cool to me, as have many of the manosphere writers, and I am always happy to see guys from this forum discovering my work.
