Not a Very Good Gay
I think people have probably already established that I'm not the most typical of gays. Just the fact that I'm prepared to use the word as a noun says it all really.
But working with TWG (The Welsh Gay) has really highlighted even more just how much of an atypical gay I am. I've chatted to Nick Stephenson about this who describes himself as a homophobic homosexualist. I'm happy to identify similarly.
An example, yesterday:
TWG (The Welsh Gay): CF (Control Freak, his partner) and I have been invited to a party.
Ziggy (in his infinite naivete): Oh cool, that will be fun.
TWG: It's that type of party.
Ziggy: What type of party?
TWG: A sex party. 8 guys have been invited.
Ziggy: Is it at someone's house?
Ziggy: Will they serve hor'dourves?
TWG looks at Ziggy incredulously.
The thing is, I hardly understand the protocol of gay sex let alone the protocol of a group of guys having a sex party. I mean, what is the process? Do people sit around sipping drinks and nibbling on blinis and chat about Celebrity Big Brother while waiting for someone to bend over or take their cock out?
I don't get it. And to be entirely honest, when gay men say shit like this to me... I feel ashamed to be gay.
