Berlin is the sex mecca of the world

Well let me qualify what I said - the HIV outreach I have been doing is centered mostly in the gay community. I can tell you in most parts of the states (maybe excluding San Francisco) the "naked sex party" would not have been advertised openly and would likely have been shut down by cops as some sort of violation of obscenity laws. Here such it was advertised extremely openly and nobody cares.

 

I would say that sex parties are also normal among young straight people in Germany. Of course the fact that they are "normal" does not imply that everybody goes to them or has to go to them, just in the same way not everybody plays football or has to play football. Also people tend not to talk about sex parties in certain types of female company, so there are people who will go through life and never hear about them.

 

Generally speaking they are just another way for German guys to socialize. I tried one and it wasn't my cup of tea. But I absolutely respect the right of Germans to have their own ways and wouldn't get outraged because it doesn't fit the more puritanical mores of my own culture.

Sometimes I really do wish I were gay. Gay dudes seem to have so much more fun...

 

You can have sex with random strangers without being gay. Don't understand where you are coming from, what is preventing you from having all that fun?

Gay people can be quite fun to be around in a partying kind of space, nothing much to do with sex.

 

I'm not so into humping totally random strangers either - at least, it hasn't been my overriding objective for a night out, though I do go with the flow. I haven't been to a berlin sex party, and I don't think I'm going to, but the Kit Kat Klub sounds like fun. Anyway in my experience, going for drinks with a tall, sexy, black, flaming gay housemate as a wingman worked out fabulously well throughout college.

i agree with you a.tuttle. i have noticed that my gay friends are some of the best party-partners and wingmen you can ask for. perhaps they feel more liberated or comfortable letting loose and having a good time than straight people because their process of self-discovery/actualization was a more monumental event in their personal development, while for straight people there is no equivalent for the definitive "coming out of the closet" moment.

As a queer from San Francisco, I'd have to say that sex parties don't happen that often but certainly wouldn't be looked down upon. I don't find it seedy at all. Some people are more uptight about sex than others. As for me, I saw some great blowjobs happening in line to the club on saturday. This would definitely be considered seedy in the states, which is exactly why I thought it was hot.

Germans going to sex clubs is a fucking (sic) joke. The amount of sex going on is not much. Germans are so reserved. They'd rather talk about the weather and compliment the hostess on what a great spread there is for supper than get naked and actually get on with it ... so I'm told.

Paradise regained

 

A confluence of factors created Berlin’s unique status as the sex Mecca of Europe during the Weimar period. Germany’s recent defeat in World War I did its part, encouraging general disillusionment and leaving behind thousands of war widows in Berlin’s populace of 4 million with no means of realistically supporting themselves other than by prostitution. Gone were the Kaiser and the old morality, and in their place was a new liberal republic. And then there was the general economic collapse and inflation. In October 1923, German currency traded at the astronomical rate of 4.2 billion marks to the U.S. dollar. Gordon points out that “the most exquisite blow job” to be had in Berlin never cost an American tourist more than 30 cents.

 

Berlin even had its own urban myth to explain the city’s frenzied, oversexed atmosphere. They ascribed it to the Berliner Luft, the “amphetamine-like air” of the city that made their hearts beat wildly at night and reinvigorated them at dawn.

Has anybody experienced the largest adult entertainment fair in the world,

the Venus Berlin ???

 

Yeah. Got a blowjob from a chick named Merry there back in 2009. She is a reasonably famous porn star these days.

The wild, decadent ways of the Weimar era are alive again in Berlin - Wall Street Journal

 

Quote:

Today, with the city's post-Berlin Wall reconstruction nearly complete in physical and emotional terms, there are signs that the wild, wicked Berlin of the 1920s has returned. The city's avant-garde art scene is flourishing; stars like Olafur Eliasson and Daniel Richter now call Berlin home. (Chinese artist Ai Weiwei accepted a post at the Berlin University of the Arts after his imprisonment last year.) World-class filmmaking has returned to the famed Studio Babelsberg; soundstages where Fritz Lang and Josef von Sternberg worked are now being used by notable subversives like the Wachowskis and Quentin Tarantino. The contemporary nightlife scene is unmatched in its enthusiasm for all-hours partying and sheer volume of venues and events--many inspired by a past golden age.

For those who want to practise their German...

 

Berlin glänzt -NZZ

 

Zitat:

Berliner Busfahrer, die nachts an der Haltestelle vorbeifahren, ohne anzuhalten, und einen im Regen stehen lassen, und schnippische Verkäuferinnen, die einem schon frühmorgens beim Bäcker die Laune verderben, haben seit meinem ersten Aufenthalt in Berlin merklich an Boden verloren; wenn man ihnen hier und da noch begegnet, kann man sie getrost unter «Lokalkolorit» verbuchen, und das ist sicher nicht, was derjenige sucht, der sich hier niederlässt. Auch wenn noch längst nicht alles Gold ist, was glänzt, schimmert die Zukunft Berlins trotz Finanzkrise und Prekariat (auch unter den Künstlern), trotz steigenden Mieten und zunehmenden Touristenströmen hell in der Düsternis. Was er findet, ist eine Stadt, in der man bei Bedarf in die Anonymität abtauchen, mit einer der zahlreichen Subkulturen verschmelzen oder einfach mit dem Mainstream schwimmen kann. Je nachdem, wonach einem ist, kann man diese diversen Identifikationsmöglichkeiten auch mischen, wechseln oder gleichzeitig leben. Wo könnte man das sonst mit solcher Leichtigkeit?
