New Orleans Part 2. Chapter 2: Cocks and Robbers

My first time at the gay strip club in New Orleans proved to be an eye opening experience I live for experiences such as this to feed my appetite for understanding humanity. After that first visit, I’d made a new friend, Chase the young muscles with the bold moves on the bar.  He is a native New Yorker and was quite new to the stripping scene in Nola.  He’d met a wealthy Gay man who flew him down for a holiday, as Chase isn’t gay, his benefactor flew back to New York without him when he didn’t give in to his sexual advances.

Sounds like a lovely entry into a travel brochure if you’re thinking about your next holiday destination, doesn’t it?

This was also my impression of this city having never visited, and quite frankly, never fancied it.  However, earlier this year a very good friend of mine from London went on an extended holiday to NOLA and invited me down to join her.  So within 24 hours of having that conversation I was on a plane to holiday in America for the first time in well over a decade.
