Investigations are under way after someone replaced lube with acid in a dispenser at a gay club.

A 62-year-old man was arrested in Sydney, Australia, after going to Aarows, Rydalmere, and poured hydrochloric acid into the dispenser.

And of course all those stories about Teh Gayers being promiscuous are entirely untrue.

Lube? For use on the premises presumably?

  1. Aarows provides a secure, relaxed environment where gay and bi people can meet and socialise together 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Plenty of parking with discreet rear private entry.

    Hahahahaha! 🙂

  2. The sale of condoms in the bogs of a boozer doesn’t imply the landlord invites sex on the premises.

    But, yes, i daresay the presence of a lube dispenser indicates this is indeed a place for on-premises promiscuity.

    I wonder if the acid/lube tends to be applied first to the hand then to the amusing bits, or is it the other way around?

  3. Edward: It looks like the soap dispensers in some public toilets, so you’d have to be something of a contortionist to apply it directly.

  4. Putting HCl in a lube dispenser is a very nasty and vicious thing to do. A mild irritant, on the other hand, would have a certain amusement value without doing any harm. But why not leave teh gayers alone?

    My knowledge of gay clubs comes mostly from that Frankie Goes To Hollywood video.

    Dirty buggers. Mike Read did nothing wrong.

    BTW “Aarows” is a terrible name for a gay club.

    If I were running a gay club I’d call it “Shuttlecock”, or maybe “The Pink Windmill”.

  7. TiS, I’d call it Locomotives. Or perhaps Bulldozers.

    Theo, you’re quite right. But this sort of thing brings out the schoolboy in many of us.

    “The Calloused Trombone.”


    The Filling Station.

    Or if we want to attract the Waitrose crowd, “Coq au Man”

    But it makes sure they’re first in the ‘phone book.

  10. But would it even work? The lube is presumably a gel of some sort (Matthew L says it’s in something like a soap dispenser). Hydrochloric acid was a liquid when I was at school. Wouldn’t it just all pour out? Or can the acid be put into a gel?

    They probably get a lot of calls from confused archers.

    BTW any speculation as to motive?

    Could be a gay-basher, but he’s 62 years old. Bitter that he can’t get a date anymore? I guess the gay clubbing scene, like the straight clubbing scene, is for fit young things with clear skin and tight glutes.

  13. “If I were running a gay club I’d call it “Shuttlecock”, or maybe “The Pink Windmill”.”

    I would call it “The House of Allah”.

    Much sniggering to be had, yes. But this was a fucking evil thing to do and I hope they nail his knackers to a plank.

  15. If the soap dispenser was plastic, then the HCl would burn through it, shurely.

    I think hydrochloride acid will sit fine in a plastic container. It’s metal that wouldn’t hold it.

  16. Bloke in Costa Rica

    HCl will sit quite nicely in a plastic container. They sell it here in Walmart (as muriatic acid) in standard polyethylene bottles.

  17. “A former colleague used to go to a club night in Vauxhall called Fist.”

    Club night? Vauxhall? Please tell me it was Surrey CCC.

  18. I knew a gay guy back in the 1980s. He didn’t think he was promiscuous as he only averaged a different new partner every week. He thought promiscuous meant going to a gay orgy. Every week.

    Last week I watched And the Band Played On about the introduction and spread of HIV/AIDS in the USA. They think it was brought in by a French-Canadian pilot who frequented the San Francisco bathhouses, and when they confronted him and asked for a list of his partners over the past 2-3 years, he laughed and said it ran into the thousands. Whoops.
