When you enter the cavernous warehouse performance space currently housing “Sanctuary” the extremely sexy new piece by out choreographer Brian Sanders’ JUNK, the ushers dutifully warn “If you sit in the first two rows you’ll get wet. Very wet.” This writer is too much of a gentleman and the piece is far too good to stoop to doubling that entendre. Resisting, however, will be hard. Er, difficult.

An Open Letter to Blaze Waters

I understand that your shows and parties are also fundraisers to help you in your running battle with the owner of Albert’s on Grant Avenue in the Northeast, where you had been operating the first successful gay nightspot in the Northeast until Albert Buoncristiano locked you out in a rent dispute. I sympathize with your plight and understand the frustration and anger you feel at how he has treated you.

Is a Threesome Right for Me?

A 6+ year relationship ended early last year, and recently i’ve moved toward becoming “official” with one person after spending a year on my own, exploring, etc….She’s very sweet and we get along great and we have a mutual friend whom i have always been very friendly/flirtatious, but nothing has ever happened. Lately they go out on weekends and talk about me…. I’m just wondering if this is dangerous territory for me, despite the potential awesomeness that could (and most definitely would) ensue. If this turns threesome-y, I want to know potential dangers, etc…I don’t need to do ANYTHING to make it happen, I’m asking you basically if you were me what would you do?
