A Creepy Gay Sex Cult
Here’s a story about a guy who was down on his luck and wound up getting stuck in one of the weirdest cults I’ve ever heard of.
Sex, Christopher explains, was considered to be a lowly activity and was highly discouraged among members, though Andreas would have sex with anyone he wanted whenever he wanted. He would also demand they partake in bizarre sexual rituals for his enjoyment.
“Everyone would dress up at Halloween,” Christopher explains, describing what happened next as “very sexual.” To make a long story short, cult members who act out a deranged porno “skit” called Lord of the Cock Rings while Andreas watched.
There’s more here. It’s also interesting to note that Christopher refers to this guy as an “old troll.” You don’t hear that expression much these days unless someone is talking about an Internet troll. But in gay culture old troll is still used quite often. It’s a pejorative used to describe an older gay man who cruises younger gay men with or without them wanting the attention. That’s the nicest way to put it.
Gay Bathhouses, Gay Sex, and Shocked Lawmaker
Although I’ve never been to a gay bathhouse, I have posted about them here on the blog, I’ve written about them in books, and I’ve tried to explain how they fit into gay culture. They aren’t all that popular anymore thanks to changing times and the Internet. But at one time, a gay bathhouse was one of the few places gay men could gather safely and discreetly.
Here’s the problem. There are still a few around and they still serve the same purpose. Most of the time they pass as health spas or athletic clubs. Not all gay men are out of the closet and many still need discreet places to meet…especially in more heteronormative parts of the US.
Now there’s a politician who wants to shut one of these places down.
A Democratic city councilman from Louisville, KY wants to shut down a private “spa” that caters to gay clientele because he’s not convinced it’s a real “spa.” At least, not the kind of “spa” he’s familiar with.
He claims he was shocked when he went there and saw what was happening. But there are no records that he did go there, at least not officially. The owner of the spa is disputing the allegations.
You can read the rest here. The comments are fascinating. It’s amazing how many are still so eager to pass judgment on anything relating to sex.
