It’s Not What I Want, It’s What I Need

Death by Party | Electric Six- Gay Bar

I want you to take me to a gay bar. I want you to spend all my money and put that something you’ve got in me. I want you to take me to a gay bar because it may be the last bastion of real hedonism. I want you to take me to a gay bar because it’s what strip clubs used to be for straight people before touching and glitter and sex and strobe lights were outlawed. I want you to take me to a gay bar because I used to be a raver and I can’t quite let it go.

I want you to take me to a gay bar because “I want to take you to a brew pub” just doesn’t have the same ring to it. I want you to take me to a gay bar because I appreciate your suggestion that you will feed me club drugs, take most of my clothes off and make out with me while I am groped by anonymous hands on a dance floor so dark I can’t see my own feet. I want you to take me to a gay bar because I want the chance to witness deviant sexual acts in an up close and personal setting.

I want you to take me to a gay bar so I can dress like I’m asking for it, dance like I’m begging for it and drink like I’m hoping to wake up in a gutter without anyone calling me on it. I want you to take me to a gay bar so I can write checks no one would ever deign to cash. I want to be disposable periphery so take me to a gay bar.
