    viveutvivas saidI thought it was more a straight thing...

    No, it's heavily gay & lesbian, but neither officially gay nor straight. I've been there, though won't be this year.

    It's an artsy gathering, a holdover from the hippie years, kind of a look back in time to Woodstock. Lots of nudity, lots of open sex, and lots of "who gives a fuck?"

    If you can deal with that, then you might enjoy it.

    I went last year . The creativity and imagination put into all the camps and activities was truly amazing and fun. I participated in the genuine carefree stuff that was new and unique.

    It wasn't fun to see and hear hundreds of drunken drugged out people having open sex and passed out along the way and proclaiming they were doing it in the name of "spirituality", "freedom", "liberation" and "creativity".

    Oh Puleez.

    Not taking a shower for a few days in the hot desert sun and then freezing at night without washing (everyone pretty much stinks) was bearable. Give me a HIlton and a/c and I'm a happy camper.

    Why wasn't it fun? Sounds like fun to me.. icon_twisted.gif


    It just wasn't my scene. Seems weird that people need tons of drugs and booze to have a good time and to have great sex. That's not an originial concept nor does it speak of liberation or freedom.

    Certain cultures and traditions do use specific drugs to enhance spirituality and inner happiness but it is done with experienced practiioners who know what they are doing. Most of the people at burning man just use it as an excuse to party.

    Sorry don't intend to judge but that was a big part of what I saw. The conversations I had with many folks there were just plain ridiculous. If I want to do drugs and booze it up and have wild sex, I can do that anyday here in NYC or anywhere in the world. But I wouldn't call it a spiritual jouney that broadens my horizons. But dat's just me.

    I'm actually making a you tube video on the gay scene at burning man. With that a music video and alittle movie since this one place has so much great video footage. I never got any negative reactions from people at burning man. I do think that people should be educated on what fun they are missing out on. If Adam Lambert can do it, you can too! So stop being a pussy lol!

    I was thinking about going, but I decided that Lollapalooza was my big event for this summer.
