    A lot has been written about what guys don't like. But here are some things I LOVE about gay clubs:

    1) When the music is good, it's GOOD! A talented creative DJ will spin and mix music that gets everybody feeling good and friendly towards one another. Also, you will probaly never find these beats in a straight club. That's why I never go to a club without first checking on who's spinning.

    2) Freedom to Dance. If your thing is dancing (not sex or cruising), it really is liberating to look up and see the crowd having fun. There's a certain amount of commeraderie that develops between people on the dancefloor, no matter what they look like and no judgements about masculinity/femininity. This usually happens when the club thins out, the riffraf has left and the music changes to a style more danceable. That's when people come alive.

    3) The next morning I feel like I've had the best workout ever. My entire body feels tight from all the moving around.

    4) I'm a very physical guy. In everyday life, my responsibilities include being the boss, the responsible brother/son, the politician, the caregiver, the guy people want to date, the joker, the fixer and the wise one. All that dancing is ultimately calming in a body/mind way.

    Anyone else have anything good to say about the clubs?

    Oh you lil bitch...being all anti-Jake n shit. icon_razz.gif Anyway, I'll take part in this.

    Things I like about gay bars:

    (1) Easy to get laid

    (2) Easier to get laid the more I drink

    (3) Go-go dancers

    (4) Usually a LOT more casual with dress code

    (5) I gain more confidence in hitting on guys because the "I'm not sure if he's even gay" factor is removed from the picture. And if the guy I hit on in a gay bar is indeed straight, I don't feel embarrassed at all for "misunderstanding" because he IS in a gay bar after all.

    (6) Trannies and drag queens. I admit I LOVE their sassiness and bitchiness. A lot.

    FYI Kissing Pro, everything except for #2 you wrote can apply to straight bars as well. What gives I thought this was about GAY bars? You fail at your own thread. That's cute. icon_wink.gif

    More power to you if you find it easier to get laid in a gay club. For me, it has nothing to do with actually getting laid. But the charge, the sexual energy is intense and I plow that into how I am dancing and feeling good.

    One more thing I like......I can usually drink for free after I smile a lot at the bartender!

    A big difference between gay/straight clubs are the pocketbooks and perfume. Whenever I am at a club where there are lots of woman, all night long I'm getting hit in the side with pocketbooks and the smell of perfume is nauseating, plus I don't like when a group of women decide I'm the guy to dance near.

    That's probably the BEST advantage of being in a gay club actually! So very true.

    Yeh but no...the women come into gay bars now and do the same thing...just less of them and less frequent invasions.

    Hey GQJOCK....that Beyonce clip was so much fun to see and hear. I recently listened to a very beautiful rendition of "Ave Maria" by Beyonce. When the night is almost over, and there are about 50 or so guys still dancing, that's the type/mood of song a DJ will usually play....real sweet.

    DANCE.........Put your hands up high.
    DANCE.........Move them side to side.
    DANCE.........To the left to the right...feelin so good tonight.

    I like bars/clubs as a convenient litmus test...

    The moment a date mentions one, I instantly know there's no need for the date to continue.. makes it nice 'n easy to rule out bad apples.

    What I loved about it when I first started going was I felt so LIBERATED! I didn't have to worry how gay I looked. It was great.

    Now I love it because it's nice to go watch my boyfriend be a dance slut on the floor, and I get to look at all the eye-candy. Good lord Town is a nice place in DC

    Eye candy. Plain and simple. And with intense dance music in the background, it makes checking it out men all the more exciting. And the comaraderie. Look at all these good-looking gay men in here! It's nice after looking at straight men all day. It's our own little world in here. I'm not the bar fly/dancer/nightly bar hopper that I used to be. Rarely go out anymore, actually. But I remember the thrill and always will. Gay men created disco and we still have it. To the younger guys, sorry that you missed the birth and zenith of disco. I will cherish coming out at that time forever. We'll probably never see anything like that again. I'm currently transferring all of my disco vinyl to CD. I'm estimating a year or so to do it all. I'm reliving those days again in the meantime!

    Girls are more open to talking to guys in a gay club. In a regular club girls are much more guarded and any attempt to approach them indicates you are just trying to get in their panties. In a gay club chicks are more open to conversation cuz they don't feel like every guy in the club is out to bump uglies w/ them.

    Why do you think a guy who mentions going out dancing is a bad apple?

    Because in my personal opinion going to bars/clubs is generally immature, superficially sex-focused, and indicative of an unhealthy lifestyle (most attendees drink alcohol, many smoke, and some even do drugs).

    And unhealthy, immature, and sex-focused isn't what I'm looking for since I'm looking for a genuine life partner longterm relationship.
