I spotted this meme over on Yani's blog, and given that it's the eve of the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras, and lust is in the air, I figured I'd give it a go.
Some of you tender souls might want to stop reading at this point! You're likely going to learn more about me than you care to know.
Have you ever had sex with the opposite sex?
No, in fact I've never even French kissed a woman. I was dating boys in High School, as soon as puberty kicked in I was all let me at 'em.
Who is the first person you came out to?
Two people at the same time actually, my best friends Michael and Oleh. We were all 15 at the time.
Are you out to your parents?
They're both deceased. My Mum knew before she died (courtesy of some snooping in my room!) but I never got around to telling my Dad.
Do you want kids?
No, but I'm loving hanging out with the kids of my friends.
Do you have more gay friends or straight friends?
I'd say that now the scales have tipped to slightly more straight friends.
Were you out in school?
Yup, very much so. Pretty much the whole school knew. I got lots more action that way!
Is your best friend the same sex as you?
If your best friend is the same sex, have you ever kissed them?
Yes, and more. (They're an ex boyfriend.)
Have you ever done crystal meth?
Yikes no. I have done very little drug experimentation.
Have you ever been in a sling?
Yes. It was fun, plus it gets you off your feet after a busy day.
Have you ever done a 3-way?
Quite a few of them, not to mention more than three...
Have you ever dressed in drag?
Once, for a party. I was very convincing but very uncomfortable.
Would you ever date a drag queen?
No, probably not. I'm a bit of a man's man. (That's a preference, not a prejudice.)
Are you a top/bottom or truly versatile?
Versatile, but prefer top.
Have you seen an uncircumcised thingy?
Hell yes, praise be. (Thingy?...)
Have you had sex with someone of a different race?
Yes, on a number of occasions.
Have you ever barebacked?
No, never. I was a late bloomer in the backdoor department and by then I already knew the risks, and was working as a telephone counsellor telling other people of the risks.
How many Cher CDs do you own?
Name your first true love?
Gary, my first serious boyfriend who emigrated from the UK so we could be together. I was 19 and he was 21.
Do you still talk to them?
He and his husband have moved many times and we lost touch last time. I'm not sure where they are now, but I would if I could.
Does size matter?
No, not really. So long as the owner is comfortable with what they have, confidence is sexy.
Biggest turn on?
Imagination and confidence.
Biggest turn off?
Inhibition and lack of enthusiasm.
Ever been harassed because you are gay?
Yes, but not anything I couldn't handle. I've been very fortunate in that regard.
Worst gay stereotype that applies to you?
Just one? Love sewing/craft. Hate sports. Love girly pop music. Can dance well. Would never mix a brown belt with black shoes.
Ever been to a pride rally?
Yes. Candlelight vigils. Protest rallies. The whole box and dice.
Would you marry if you could?
Yes, applications are open.
Would you rather be rich and smart or young and beautiful?
Rich and smart. You can make both of those last if you try hard enough.
Do you sculpt your eyebrows?
Ugh, no. Oh, except to cut the odd wiry 'old man eyebrow' I've started getting.
Do you trim your body hair?
No, but there isn't a lot to trim really.
Ever had sex with more than one person in a day?
Ever been to an orgy?
Yup. They've very social, don't you know.
Have you dated your best friends ex?
No, but I've had the inverse happen.
Would you vote for Hilary Clinton if she ran for president?
Do you want monogamy in your relationship?
Ideally, and if it would benefit the relationship.
Do you believe in true love?
I think everyone's version of love is 'true' to them.
Do you have any tattoos?
No, but I might change that this year.
Do you have any piercings?
Would you date a smoker?
No. I have done in the past, and no matter what it isn't a nice experience.
Do you know anyone who has died from HIV?
Sadly yes. A number of people, and somebody I loved very much.
Do you know what Stonewall was?
Yes. A bar where all manner of queers, trannies and freaks finally stood up and said "enough is enough".
Wonder Woman, Xena, or the Halliwell Sisters?
Geri Halliwell? Can I pick her?
Strangest place you have had sex?
Under a Roman built viaduct in Luxembourgh, with a boy who spoke no English.
Strangest place you've woken up?
Nowhere strange, I'm too light a sleeper. If it's anything other than a comfy bed and a dark room, I don't sleep.
Are your best years behind or in front of you?
Define your parameters. Maybe behind, but who can say?
Favorite porn movie?
Um, they all tire after a number of viewings but I like the insouciant charm of vintage porn. Plus the guys were more natural looking and the enthusiasm seemed less fake. I think the first gay porn I ever saw was "The Other Side of Aspen" and I marvelled at how masculine the guys were, so I guess I'd have to pick that if any.
Are you in love now?
Yup, with food. It shows.
Ever been in love with a straight guy/girl?
Crush yes, love no. Love needs possibility.
Did you ever have sex with them?
Have you ever been to a nude beach?
Yes, Maslins Beach in Adelaide.
Have you ever been to a bath house?
Ever had sex in public?
Um, not really in public per se, but I have had an audience. It was very... encouraging.
So, there you have it. Anyone care to play?
