Top 10 Gay Destinations Worldwide

Cape Town Gay Destination

What are the top gay destinations in the world and why?  Most LGTB people love to travel and when traveling like a mix of partying and sightseeing.  Here are some of the top 10 gay destinations worldwide.

  1. San Francisco USA

    . Pride Week is capped by the often-outrageous ‘Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Pride Parade’ – where half a million people party in the street on the last Sunday in June. Also in June is the long-running queer film festival.

  2. Sydney, Australia
    Hey, in Sydney gay is the new straight. Gay and lesbian culture forms a vocal, vital, well-organized and colorful part of Sydney’s social fabric. Host of the 2002 Gay Games, Sydney also plays host to Australia’s biggest annual tourist event – the Mardi Gras. The joy-filled hedonism-meets-political-protest parade is attended by more than half a million people. Beach life also reigns here, so boys should buff up before hitting the sand.
  3. Brighton, England
    Perhaps it’s Brighton’s long-time association with the theatre, but for more than 100 years the city has been a gay haven. The vibrant queer community is made-up of 40,000 residents – almost a quarter of the total population. Kemptown (aka Camptown) is where it’s all at, with a rank of gay-owned bars, hotels, cafés, bookshops and saunas. There’s even a ‘Gay’s the Word’ walking tour.
  4. Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    Touted as the gay and lesbian capital of Europe, partisan estimates put the proportion of gay and lesbian people in Amsterdam at 20% to 30%. Though the figures are probably exaggerated, there’s no underestimating the number of venues for gays and lesbians. There are more than 100 bars and nightclubs, gay hotels, bookshops, sport clubs, choirs and support services. Amsterdam hosts the only water-borne gay-pride parade in the world, held on the canals on the first Saturday in August.
  5. Berlin, Germany
    Berlin’s legendary liberalism has spawned one of the world’s biggest gay and lesbian scenes. Openly gay mayor Klaus Wowereit outed himself with the now-popular words: ‘I’m gay, and that’s a good thing’. As befits Berlin’s decentralised nature, the city has no dedicated gay ghetto although it contains a number of established scenes. Huge crowds turn out in early June for Schwul-Lesbisches Strassenfest (Gay-Lesbian Street Fair), which is basically a warm-up for Christopher Street Day later that month.
  6. Cape Town, South Africa
    Regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world:- ‘heaven at the tip of Africa’ and voted as one of the top Gay travel destinations, Cape Town is a cosmopolitan city with beautiful people, breathtaking scenery and far too much to see and do in just one visit.
    The world famous picture postcard Table Mountain, fine gay accommodation, white sandy beaches, lush countryside, arid plains, game reserves and just about anything else you could imagine discovering in paradise. Including an exciting gay scene. No wonder most visitors return year after year!
    Capetonians’ easy-going attitude, together with the new liberal South African Constitution which safeguards gay rights, make Cape Town an extremely gay-friendly city. Today Cape Town has a huge per capita gay population and boasts possibly the most developed gay community on the African continent. Over and above its stunning natural scenery and superb beaches, Cape Town has over 100 gay venues, which includes clubs, bars, businesses and organizations, making it South Africa’s undisputed queer capital.
  7. New York City, USA
    New York’s Chelsea and Greenwich Village are synonymous with gay life, possessing a thriving out-there scene. A number of quieter clubs and bars continue to flourish further uptown in Chelsea as well. Every scene, from art to fashion, is hot in New York – and the gay scene is no exception, with great galleries, bars and clubs. June sees the obligatory Gay Pride parade attracting revelers from around the world.
  8. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
    During Car naval (February or March), thousands of expatriate Brazilian and gringo gays fly in to take part in the fun, with transvestites stealing the show at most balls. Outside Carnival the gay scene is active, though less visible than in cities such as San Francisco and Sydney. The gay capital of Latin America is a mostly integrated scene, with the Entertainment sections of local newspapers and magazines branding establishments ‘GLS’: Gays, Lesbians and Sympathizers.
  9. Prague, Czech Republic
    The beguiling bohemian city of Prague inspired Kafka to warn visitors: ‘this little mother has claws’. Its maze of medieval lanes keeps a bevy of bars catering to all fancies: from leather through to rent boy. The cradle of Czech culture, Prague also stages a gay and lesbian film festival annually in November. Despite the city’s wholesale acceptance of same-sex partnerships, there’s a segregated gay scene, and public displays of affection are generally ill advised.
  10. Bangkok, Thailand
    There’s no ‘gay movement’ as such in Bangkok, as there’s no anti gay establishment to move against. Thai culture is generally accepting of male and female homosexuality; however, public displays of affection per se are mostly frowned upon. The fairly prominent scene centers on the proliferation of bars, often enlivened by high camp cabaret.

So do you agree that these are the top 10 gay destinations?  Do you have another list?  We would love to hear from you and your comments.

10 Worst Pick-Up Lines Ever Used

Enjoying the Party

So you may ask what are the worst pick up lines ever used.  Well here I think we come pretty close to compiling that list.   How people could be so stupid to use them defies belief and what is even more terrible is that sometimes they work! Why? Well it’s about hitting the right tone, with just the right amount of playful cheek – it doesn’t hurt to have a little bit of the confident arrogance needed to pull them off as well.  Have a little bit of a laugh and feel embarrassed for these lame ducks that use them.  But please DO NOT try them yourself as it is likely that you may end up with a drink in your face and no-one to keep you company. Or better yet try them out and see how long you can last and whether you can luck it out.

  1. Do you like to dance? Good, then go dance so I can talk to your hot friend.
  2. I have a dictionary in my pants. Let’s say we go back to your house and put some words in your mouth.
  3. Wanna do a ’68? You go down on me and I’ll owe you one.
  4. You might as well just sleep with me, because I’m going to tell everyone you did.
  5. There are 216 bones in the human body… Would you like 217?
  6. Corny Pick Up Lines
  7. Can I buy you a drink, or do you just want the money?
  8. Nice shoes, wanna fuck?
  9. Nice legs… What time do they open?
  10. It must be raining outside… Cause the heavens must be crying as they are missing an angel.

 

So what do you think? Maybe you can twist them into something amazing and worthwhile! Or you’ll remember them when you are drunk and say them to the wrong person. Were they the lamest?  Do you have any better or even worse?  I would love to hear from you with the worst pick up lines you have heard used.  Better still what are the best pick up lines ever used?  The ones that actually are almost fail safe and will get that girl or gal to ride home with you.  Sometimes it is charm that works but more often it is the gift of the gab and those funny one liners people use that endear them to us.

Top Ten Pick Up Lines Gay Men To Straight Men!

Pick Up Line Photo

Here are my Top Ten 10 pick-up Lines That Us Gays Use On Straight People To Feel Them Out…  It is a great gay achievement to end up sleeping with a straight guy or ‘turning’ him or letting him ‘get out of the closet’.

Pick Up Line Photo
Quote: Pick Up Line
  1. Dump the bitch… make the switch: My classic line when I see a straight man enter a gay nightclub.  These days there are so many ‘hetro’ men delving into the gay scene that at least 10% have got to be closets.  You would be surprised how many times this line actually has worked.
  2. What your girl don’t know, won’t hurt her: When you are alone with a macho man that has a girlfriend (or wife) – this said as a joke may always become a reality..
  3. Don’t knock it, until you tried it: Great when out with the office crew and a jealous hetro cannot understand why the girls prefer our company.  I prefer but never let it be said that I wont help a damsel in distress.
  4. You can’t tell the difference when you’re a top: Most hetro men fantasize about giving it up the butt of their ladies but unfortunately for them they don’t know how to approach it or their ladies just flat out say no.  This may get them to question if they really want to get that anal sex action.
  5. No one will never know: Rarely used but could be a good tool when the time is right and you are having a deep and meaningful with a straight.
  6. Only a man knows how to really please a man: We know where all the spots are and how to make same sex feel good.Ain’t it the truth too.  Most sex with females is inhibited and held back.  Men lust and are passionate during their lovemaking demanding what they need and want.
  7. Don’t you get tired of all the bullshit with straight dating? Gotta buy the flowers, give the compliments, pick up the bill.  When we want to we just fuck!!!
  8. You only live once, try it at least once, if you do not like, leave it alone:Try to get a straight to add it to his bucket list.  You never know the outcome.
  9. If you are really open minded, you’re willing to try anything:This has weight with those that say they are liberated and free thinking.   How could they rule out man to man action if they have not at least tried it once.
  10. A Mouth is a Mouth.. An ass is an ass: And with all these inhibited Prima Donna’s out there a  gay man is often willing and able to supply either.

Look I am not going to say these pick up lines are going to work on all occasions but, tongue in cheek, give them a go and let me know the results…  Or why not learn more not in a joking way by reading  – Is there a hot straight man at your gym that you have been keeping your eye on? Does he seem to work out around the same time that you do everyday? When you glance at him, does your heart skip a beat, causing you to get all worked up? If so, you have a major man-crush on the straight guy at your gym! But what can you do about it? And how do you handle things if you sense he might be a little curious about you. Is there anyway you can make a straight man from your gym fantasy come true?  Read on….

My First Gay Experience

Holland Photo

It seems strange to talk about it now — to take something so private and place it in such a public forum — particularly since I have lived my life as a straight man.  Keeping it secret is so important, but when I was younger I did have a Novice Gay Experience!!!  I imagine I must have been about sixteen, and had worked out that I was gay. Dwayne was nearly fifteen — we went to school together, although he was in a different year. We met at a at a school function.

He was everything that I didn’t feel I could me: confident, athletic, attractive and openly gay. I had been introverted, shy and in complete denial to my sexual preferences as I still am now … it was an upper class all-boys’ school and being gay was not really an option for me. I tried to keep out of everyone’s way, that way now would notice me and no-one would question what I was about. No one knew, but my reticence and retiring nature were apparently as worthy of derision.

Dwayne, I guess because he was younger than I was, didn’t have any of these preconceptions, hang-ups or false pretenses.  When he was around I felt more confident. He treated me like a human being and it was fun and completely liberating to be around him.  I was vulnerable and desperate for some form of affirmation that my true feeling were not bad. It was inevitable that I should fall for him.

The next year there was a school trip to Holland, and we both went.  There I developed a major crush on him and he showed me by his actions that he was interested in me. I still see him in my mind now and feel an astonishing fondness for him.  I didn’t really think it would happen but — even as I have become entirely comfortable with him on the holiday and our form of ‘gay dating’ that was soon to become more.  First we started exploring Amsterdam, walking along the lovely canals – we even took a boat trip in one of the glass roofed boats.  It was fun, invigorating – a new way of life was opening up.

At first we continued with the pretense that we were just two guy exploring a lovely Dutch city but it was obvious that a closeness and bond was developing between us.  The accidental brush each others hands that seemed to linger a few more seconds than normal.  The electricity that we felt when we were near each other.  The sun seemed to shine brighter on those spring mornings, the birds sang more clearly.  It was obvious to us both that we were not just good friend but we were falling in love.

I was a shy young gay man. I wasn’t sociable, and I found meeting people difficult. Yet, I was still young and very horny. What did I have to lose, and I was still horny. In a relationship, I had no idea what to expect, what were the rules or what would happen. We hired a hotel room together. I sat on a couch next to him. Then a hand rubbed my crotch, and before I could blink there was fumbling at my jeans and my raging hard on was in his mouth.  Exhilarating. For a few seconds I couldn’t care about my hang ups. His mouth was so soft, warm and wet and he flicked his tongue around with practiced ease. I wanted this guy. My cock wanted this guy.

Sensing my discomfort, he grabbed my hand and led me away from the bench We both lied down and I began to stroker his hard on from his shorts. I couldn’t drop to my knees fast enough. My hands started caressing a surprisingly thick cock before I wrapped my hungry mouth around it. A slight moan escaped both of us and he lent against the tree as I went to town, leaving no skin dry and UN-licked. Hands sliding up against firm muscles and I tweaked his nipples for some nipple play. I was really enjoying my first time at the beat, and all I could think at the time was satisfying my urge and why I was so naive as to have not done this sooner.
