    I was at sitting on a bench outside of a gay club with cityaznguy for about an hour and fifteen minutes and in that time about a bajilion people came out and asked us if we could spare a cigarette.

    What's with the gays and the ciggs?.......gross....icon_neutral.gif

    I guess that's why they call them fags.

    I doubt that there is any proper correlation between being gay and inclination to smoking. You probably just had an exaggerated observation (at that particular club).

    It's to get skinny, DUH.

    No but really, personally I haven't seen that many gay smokers out there to make such a connection. Even when I'm at the clubs. Perhaps it's just that location?

    lol.
    You were outside of a gay club.
    Smoking is illegal inside public places.
    Had you been outside of a straight bar a similar thing would have happened, only with mostly straight men and women.

    Statistically speaking, gay men do smoke a lot more than straight men. Anecdotally, I find this to be completely false, but that's sampling bias for you!

    Anduru saidI guess that's why they call them fags.

    lmao! I guess so!

    Deki and I were saying that we should go to a deli and buy a pack and sell them for a dollar per cig. By the end of the night we'd probably make like 200 bucks or something...lol

    I also think it's a good way to start up an innocent conversation with a cute guy.

    "hey do you have a light"
    "I don't smoke, but I can sell it to you for 5 dollars"
    "oh you're here to make $$$ out of fellow gay guys"
    "it's ok, I don't really date smokers anyway"
    "bitch I wasn't trying to hit on you"

    Imagine the awkwardness....

    I only smoke hookah, but I have noticed quite a few do it when they're drunk or socially.

    I'll do it if I'm really drunk, but otherwise I hate it.

    I dont get smoking... period. But, not just gay men, outside my gym, the straight hotties like to smoke too.

    All I could think of was "alright dude, here you just spent 2 hours working on those perfect muscles of yours only to fill your lungs with that shit afterwards."

    Don't ever ask a smoker "Why do they smoke?" or "Smoking is bad" They will get REALLY defensive and agitated. icon_lol.gif

    It's kind of nice that there are so many gay smokers. You can always count on making friends when smoking a cigarette outside of a gay bar. Someone, mind you, who does not mind cigarette breath when you go back inside.

    Bally used to allow smoking in the club

    It's a freak..right? And they're not amateurs either. It made me wonder if there was some hidden benefit to nicotine before a workout

    I have never understood the fascination with smoking. Nothing turns me off more than a guy that smokes. It stinks, its dangerous to your health & when you kiss a smoker it tastes like you just swallowed an ash tray, so dam nasty & now adays its to expensive! Lol.

    It's because of the psychological damage resulting from living in an oppressive situation. Some gay persons devalue themselves and, as a result, are somewhat self-destructive. Fortunately, society has lost much of its negative attitude towards us and therefore gay persons are acquiring more positive self-images. As societal attitudes continue to improve, we can expect to see the incidence of smoking among gays persons decrease.

    I see the motivation as coming from the desire to be thin and to lose weight. If it weren't so damn destructive/carcinogenic, I'd take up smoking in a heartbeat... icon_confused.gif

    I don't think a lot of gay people smoke. Just as many if not more are wieght traininers, marathoners ,triathletes etc. who don't smoke because of thier sport.
    If I went to a straight club I would see people sitting outside smoking too.
