### Excuse the drama! There are certain individuals who made it perfectly clear that I'm no longer welcome on "their" turf (which I happened to have founded myself, but why would that be relevant) but at the same time, they seem to feel absolutely in their rights to continue to (ab)use the service I provide here on these sites. I won't block anybody and I absolutely won't delete any account or content, as that would be an abuse of power, highly irregular and also rather futile on the anonymous internet. But guys, if you have the least bit of decency left in you, I'd suggest that you refrain from visiting these sites, stop posting your stories and just look elsewhere for your pleasure. It's not ok to shit on somebody but then continue to use their service. That's just a total asshole move. Be consequential if you hate me and please leave me alone. If you ask me to delete your accounts, I'd be more than happy to oblige. If you choose to create a new identity, so I can't see that you're still logging on... well I can't do anything about that, but it would just be even more hysterical since that is the major thing you accused me of doing - even though I never attempted to hide my identity in the first place. You know who I mean. Some people I assumed to be my friends. I've been so wrong!

Hi all! As many of you know, Philip K is a pen nameβ€”I have a separate author account on the site, from before I started running the contests. After a lot of thinking, I've decided to merge my accounts. I'll continue running the contests, but under my old, original account. Full details can be found on this forum post [here](https://forum.gaykinkystories.com/t/philip-k-retiring-im-not-actually-retiring-dont-worry-just-switching-accounts/6237). Thank you!

### Gay Porn Star Harem started Our partners who brought us GayHarem started a new version of their game which features live gay porn. ![](/image/show/10004549) It's a Free2Play game, where you can optionally spend money to speed up your progress. But in this case, a whopping 60% of the revenue created by players coming through our site will be shared with us which would be a tremendous help to maintain us. It's basically another, probably more spicy way to donate for the upkeep of the site. [Use this link to create your account and to start to play](https://gamingadlt.com/?offer=5844&uid=7d721a02-e614-45a2-a8ed-cb4218903e5d) After you've created an account, you can use the promo code ==#GaySpiralPorn== to get a nice start bonus (check the in game "Settings" menu to enter the code). The promo text describing the game in detail can be found [in the forum](https://forum.gaykinkystories.com/t/gay-porn-star-harem-promo/6150).

### Massive theft of our stories on Tumblr A person calling himself 'vugcehkvcfbk' has been copying a huge number of stories from our sites and posting them as his own on his Tumblr without any mention of the original author or source. Here's a link to that Tumblr account: https://www.tumblr.com/vugcehkvcfbk (Tumblr account needed to access). He didn't respond to my request to take down those stories, instead he just posted some more of our stories. The only way to stop him would be [to file a DMCA request](https://www.tumblr.com/dmca) with Tumblr. I'd suggest that every affected author is doing just that. There is a discussion about this incident including a list of all affected stories (and some authors) compiled by Piko and RobinHood70 (thanks guys) [on the forum](https://forum.gaykinkystories.com/t/theres-a-tumblr-account-posting-stories-from-here-without-mentioning-where-they-got-the-stories/6140?u=martin). Thanks also to Leoscurse, you brought this to our attention.

It was a pleasure to see such an immense outpouring of creative Halloween stories this year. Whether spooky, or funny, or just plain *hot,* every story earned its own fans, and this challenge would not have been the same without you. Thank you all for making this Halloween as much fun as it was! P.S.

### Injection attack on our sites Our sites have been hit with an code injection attack today. It caused the browser to open an obscure porn site just when the user got to see specifically manipulated comments. Opening the the "comments" tab made it impossible to use the site at all, as it would redirect right away. We always had several protections against this kind of attack in place, and the attacker had to go through several iterations of the attack to find the right combination of escape sequences to fool our mechanism. But in the end, he found a way. Which, in a way, is a good thing, because it allowed me to find and fix this issue. Nothing really serious happened, none of your data or your computer has been compromised. Still, I apologize to all of you, something like this should not happen, but nothing is perfect... My thanks to Philip K who stepped in and tried to mitigate the damage while I wasn't around.

#### β—πŸŽƒ Story Challenge extended by one day! In light of the today's spambot issue and how it disrupted site access for a few hours, the Halloween 2023 story contest has been extended by one day. It will now wrap up **this ++Tuesday++ evening** instead! The **deadline to submit** is now midnight UTC on 11/1, click [here](https://www.gayspiralstories.com/storyCampaign/show/10000011) to see the exact time in your region. A huge thank you to Martin for fixing the issue so quickly! 😊
Oct 30, 2023 by Philip K
**Please take note:** there is currently a bot-commenter running rampant on the site β€” we've alerted Martin, and it will be fixed once he has a moment to do so. Please be patient, the site will be back to normal soon. 😊 For now, be aware that any web page which got spammed with the comment will now automatically redirect to a spam site. That includes (a) loading any story that the bot has commented on, and (b) loading the entire comments tab itself. This'll be all fixed once Martin is able to tackle it! (Also, I'll be extending the Halloween contest by a day to account for this unexpected chaos. The contest will now close **tomorrow** instead of today.)

### New Story Challenge: Halloween 2023 πŸŽƒ The newest story challenge has opened for submissions! We can't wait to read what stories you come up with for this coming Halloween.

Final results will be announced two weeks after challenge submissions conclude, on the eve of Sunday November 12. Be sure to click and check out the challenge rules, too, for more details about how it all works β€” including how the Halloween challenge does *not* hide author names, and you *can* submit more than one story if you wish!

#### Curated Lists improved We've made several improvements to our [Curated List](https://www.gaykinkystories.com/curatedList/index) feature. Most notably, it's now possible to mark lists as "private", as many users used the feature to create their own private "have to read" lists. This is fine (even though the site already has a "Bookmark" and "Favorites" feature for precisely that purpose), but these private lists were cluttering the public Curated Lists. Now only lists that really give some additional value to other readers are shown to all users.

#### Stripe integration improved! First: Thank you, all you amazing people who helped us to collect already more than 50% of our target in just over a week! I've spent the weekend improving the sponsorship integration, all the changes are [listed here](https://forum.gaykinkystories.com/t/sponsor-the-sites-through-stripe/5777/17). The most notable change is that it's now possible to subscribe for a longer time period with a one-time payment. We also have a random "Sponsors of the Day" list on the main page and a list of all sponsors on the [sponsorship page](/user/fund). ***Edit:*** **The opt-in option for sponsors to be listed in public has been moved to the "Basic Supporter" tier!** Check out if you're listed on the [sponsorship page](/user/fund) and the "Allow your name to be listed" option there.

### Stripe is now integrated to enable donations to us! Since Sponsus went offline, we had to integrate another way to enable you to support us with donations - without them, we can't cover the expenses to maintain this site. I'm happy to announce that I've implemented a preliminary but fully functional integration of Stripe. If you want to contribute to this site, you can do this on [our funding page](https://www.gaykinkystories.com/user/fund). Read more about the integration and the donations in general [in the forum thread I've created](https://forum.gaykinkystories.com/t/sponsor-the-sites-through-stripe/5777). This is also the place to discuss this topic, ask questions and make suggestions. **As always, thank you all - both old and new supporters as well as everyone who's just a part of this community that makes these sites such a great place!** # :hugs: Martin

### Sponsus is shutting down! It has been looming for quite some time and now it seems Sponsus is actually about to shut down. Their API is not responding and the website doesn't seem to work properly anymore. The onwer doesn't respond and only less than 5% of the usual money got processed for August. If you've been sponsoring us through Sponsus, please check if any money was deducted in the last 2 weeks. Only 5% of you should have been billed. If you still got billed, please cancel your subscription with them (DO NOT reclaim the money from Stripe though, that would be a very bad idea!). I now have to find a new solution. I might add my own UI integrating with Stripe directly (https://stripe.com, one of the major international payment backbones). As Sponsus also used Stripe, everyone who supported us through Sponsus should be able to do the same through Stripe. However, implementing this will mean a lot of work for me, which I actually don't have the time for right now. So I'm afraid I'm going to lose a shit load of money in the next months to keep the servers running. Keep your fingers crossed, that I'll be able to resolved this ASAP.

### There's a _new_ feature on the site... Curated Story Lists! 😲 That's right! All users can now make and share curated Lists of their favorite stories that do a particular theme or kink really well.

Full details on how it all works can be found [in this thread](https://forum.gaykinkystories.com/t/curated-story-lists/5701) on the site's forum. So if there are stories that you've always been excited to recommend to others, now's your chance to do so! Looking forward to reading them. πŸ˜‰
