Cube – it ain’t really for homos any more…

simbo 26 November 2007 60

On Saturday night, I went to a trivia night for bit bent (a local gay group for under 25’s – I’m older than under 25 (I turned 34 today, in fact), but, well, they invited us oldsters as well).

Tables got drinks vouchers valid for Cube, that night only, as complimentary “thanks for showing up” prizes. So went along with a friend. Yes, he’s male, yes, I’m male, any comments about that will be resolutely ignored…

[ED (Kramer) – the following story is rated M – recommended for mature audiences. Please keep any homophobic comments to yourself (unless they are really funny)]

We got there early enough that one of the couchy-nook areas was free – the couchy-nooks are sorta high couches which feel more like, well, beds. So sat in one of them with friend. And proceeded to smooch for a bit. And cuddle. And fondle above the waist. For about two hours (we did break to buy drinks occasionally, to hit the loos, to wave our arms around in a vague approximation of dancing, etc).

Obviously our smooching was getting a bit too exciting for someone (possibly because our shirts did come off, and, well, I’m not exactly, slim, lithe or back-hair-less) because I ended up getting most of a glass of ice thrown over me, and a security goon saying “OUT. NOW.” By the time I’d reassembled myself and was ready to go, we got a second security goon.

I wasn’t particularly given to argue, seeing as, well, this is Cube. They knife people there…

Anyway, went back to my place, and proceeded to special-cuddle far more in various ways that are none of your damn business.

But on the plus side, I can now say I’ve achieved one of my main goals – to get kicked out of a nightclub for lewd behaviour before I turn thirty-four…

Yes, I’m aware that in public places, certain levels of decorum are expected. HOWEVER, if you’re going to offer something that pretty much resembles a bed, in a club that’s theoretically gay-aimed, you’re going to expect a certain amount of lusty behaviour.

And now, fully opening myself up for a “eewww, gays are wrong and evil and shouldn’t be allowed near our children, there could have been five year olds watching” reaction in the comments…

“you were in a club
you had ya shirt off
your 34
your not slim (your words)
you got back hair
you were kissing/fondling a DUDE. “

… and you got thrown out by a chick…

Um, actually, the security goon was a woman. A very, um, tough looking woman. Chances of her having a boyfriend are possibly remote (although I might be generalising by her spiky haircut and her job as a security guard)…

Reason why I didn’t mention the security guard may have been that stating I was intimidated by a woman may make me look bad. In retrospect, the rest of my story probably wasn’t doing me any favours either, so what the hey…

Actually, I know the boyfriend of the guy I was snogging reasonably well. So, just to confirm – nope, very unlikely.

In case anybody cares (and 53 comments suggests someone might…), I made it back to Cube last night (only my third visit this year…). Possibly I’d confused security through the cunning ruse of getting a number one hair and beard trim Saturday morning.

Anyway, I can report that there was a reasonable amount of shirtlessness both inside the club and outside it. I can’t report on the level of groping going on in the corners of the room, due to my journalistic principles being overwhelmed by my desire not to look like a pervert.

Unfortunately the bloke you were groping was actually the security goon’s boyfriend. No wonder he was pissed off.

You’re all missing what’s really happening here.

Don’t feed the trolls!

^ No. They said somebody called them who was given a fake number.

schmerica_ schmerica_ 10:22 pm 28 Nov 07

haha… thats funny. No really… it is. You just admitted that you scared some chick/guy enough to give you a fake number, hehe.

And remember that a ‘random’ number is likely to be a real number – and haven’t we all had a call from some hopeful who happens to have been given our number as a bum steer/avoidance in a nightclub the night before? Happened to me about a week ago.

[The number was the ‘Rejection Line’]

Liar ….

schmerica_ schmerica_ 9:39 pm 27 Nov 07

My number is 0419 *** ***. Feel free to give me a call anytime… I’ll prove to you how good I really am.

[ED – Posting phone numbers – ever your own – is not something we encourage on Riot. If it’s real you are asking for trouble, if it isn’t you are causing trouble for the poor person whose number it really is]

1) Bundaberg ridden Queenslanders have a habit of taking their shirts off just prior to getting their heads kicked in by the person twice their size that they decide to pick a fight with.

Coincidence ?

2) Bedroom door. Certain things are tolerated behind it, that are not considered normal on the other side. Perhaps with a little introspection you might learn to distinguish the difference, but given your gayness, I’m not holding high hopes.

schmerica_, we’ll see .. whats your number ?

I’ve see girls and guys actually getting it on at Mooseheads countless times…

As long as your actions were M rated I can’t really see the harm in it. In fact, I see it all the time in clubs. Stay away from me and don’t take it too far and I don’t care.

Cube promotes itself as a gay club, therefore any ‘gay-like’ behaviour should be more accepted there than anywhere else. Gay guys seem to like to take their shirts off… so therefore the ‘shirts coming off’ shouldn’t have even been an issue. I would say that your behaviour may have been slightly offensive, even for a gay bar. Congrats on getting thrown out though. Saw two chicks get thrown out of a niteclub about 2 weeks ago for fighting… funny stuff.

Me? I’m a good girl. I do no wrong.

You should get kicked out of the inernet for writing that trash to! ol azz SMH The real question is did you learn your lesson?

Astrojax – Hmmm yep, sorry – forgot that the perp is in this forum.

So, Mr screaming drunk, shirtless, gay dude, What are your goals for the future…

Your antics at the Club are the same as your post……nothing but self indulgent pompous flagilation. DILLIGAFF
