funny thing, yes it is true. Many of my musician friends are gay. And I
am also ofter suspected, partly because of my handle, and partly
because of my open attitude about sex. However, i am alas not gay (not
that there is anything wrong with that) You see, I have this incredible
boob fetish, and well, mens boobs aren't much good to me.

I too am glad anyone ca create - I do think that this a basic nature of
humanity - like religion, violence, affection.
