WHO WINS? YOU DECIDE! BEYOND VS. LATER

SATURDAY 20TH OCTOBER, 6AM SUNDAY MORNING – SUPER-LATE Orange Nation super-parties BEYOND and LATER go head-to-head for a marathon dance-fest over at Fire this weekend, so we asked their respective promoters a series of all-important questions to try and establish which party would win at a club-off.

BEYOND promoter BEN KAYE How would you describe your club’s music style?

Beyond has three separate rooms to cater to most people’s choices. The terrace is home to Bryony and Verity who play their own unique sound, which makes that room a fantastic destination. The Chapel is our tech room with D’Johnny setting the precedence, and the main room is the typical Beyond sound we all know and love.

1.0

LATER promoter STEVEN SHARP Later has an uplifting Sunday afternoon style taking in the current house sounds of today with disco-fuelled elements and deep, tech moments.

1.0

Name your top two DJs and state why they opitimise your club.

Now that’s far too hard to answer – all of our DJs are great and I have no favourites. I listen to the crowd by email, Facebook and by asking them on the morning of the club who they like and why, and who they want to hear next week!

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever had to do to ensure your party is a success?

Nothing really crazy but the work behind the scenes is immense; without the amazing team working week in, week out, Beyond would not be possible, especially being one of the most popular weekly parties on the scene.

Why is your crowd the best?

When the party is in full swing the energy is just electric – it’s impossible to put into words!

Who is your hottest host/ dancer from your team and why?

London is lucky to have such amazing faces and we are spoilt with everything from hot go-gos to talented individuals like Shaun, Elektra and La Menor to name just a few.

HRH Minty and Danny head my hosting team and the feedback in the past month to their arrival has been nothing short of incredible. They have been really welcomed into the Later clubbers’ hearts. They are the best!

This collaboration totally makes sense and by doing so we will spoil everyone who can make it with a Sunday extravaganza! I hope to see as many of you there as possible!

Having been involved in both clubs practically since their creations it’s been easy to see why both have their own identity and why the clubbers love them – they both love to put on unique club events and break new ground continuously while always striving to be upfront and different musically. Beyond has reinvented the afterhours genre, which is quite a statement in today’s club climate.

Now compliment each other’s club.

Final Score 5.0

Our two core residents are The Oli and Jamie Head who both have their own distinctive take on house. They are the key elements to the soundtrack of Sunday afternoon clubbing that Later stands for, always breaking new music but remembering the classic ingredients that make Later unique.

Driven around Soho in a VW camper van to promote what turned out to be the amazing Orange Summer of Love party a few years ago, playing acid house on a Saturday night.

The Later crowd is very dedicated and love their music. They want fun in clubbing and that’s what I always try to deliver.

THE VERDICT

Beyond is an amazing afterhours club and Later is a Sunday afternoon specialty – there was never going to be an outright winner – so, with the best of both worlds this weekend, let’s get ready to party! n Beyond vs. Later is at Fire, South Lambeth Road, Vauxhall, SW8. n Entry is £12 before 8am with the Boyz advert on p.5.

CELEBRATING A SECOND YEAR OF SEXY SERVICE ROOM SERVICE: THE 2ND BIRTHDAY THURSDAY 18TH OCTOBER, 10PM – 4AM

Sizzling Thursday night party ROOM SERVICE is fast approaching its 2ND BIRTHDAY and Jodie Harsh has much to celebrate, including a new record label with accompanying underground house single and a blossoming international club brand complete with delicious following. So, Room Service celebrates its 2nd birthday this week. How’s the ride been so far? I could go on and on about how amazing it’s been but that’d be such a generic answer to give. Actually, it’s totally ruined my Fridays. Has it changed at all in its two years? We’re still in the same venue in London and it’s still rammed with hot boys and the coolest people in London, so there is a constant with the party, but we’re always introducing new hosts, changing up the photo style and bringing in new DJs. You’ve got to keep moving because in this internet age people get bored so quickly. Everything has to be new, new, new! Outside of the London party every Thursday we’ve been touring loads as well, big time! In places like New York, Paris, Las Vegas, Rome, Ibiza, Amsterdam. I like to get the Room Service team on a plane a couple of weekends a month. And what have you got planned for the 2nd birthday? A ton of hosts, from porn icon Kennedy Carter to my favourite girls Johanna and La Pequena, and the best music you can hear in a London gay club from Verity Mayes and Ariel. And me, being a slut. You’ve recently launched a new look for the branded club pics – what was the inspiration? Room Service has always been inspired by the New York and San Francisco party scenes. We came across loads of old flyers online that had everything cut and

008

pasted, and I just really liked the effect. And then I’ll come up with something new soon and change it again. Brands that stay looking the same for a long time get boring. It’s 2012 and we’re not Coca Cola. Yet. The Room Service record label is up and running too – how long have you wanted your own label? Music has always been my first love and what I wanted to do. It’s the main focus point in all my club brands – you start with the music and work your way out to all the colourful stuff from there. House music is my passion; I love it more than I love my wig. So it made perfect sense to create a record label for Room Service. We’ve got some kick-ass music ready to release, including my new single ‘Mandolin’. What’s next for Room Service? We’re making the fourth video in our Sextape series right now. These things take quite a long time to produce and I’ve never believed in rushing stuff out, but you’ll see it by Christmas. There’s tons of flesh on display, as ever. We’ll be on the road more and more too; the whole world is going to be Serviced! I really just want to make people dance with our music and throw the best fucking parties possible. It’s not rocket science; we’re not reinventing the wheel. We’re just here to have fun. n Room Service is at Miabella, 12-13 Greek Street, Soho, W1. n Entry is £6 before 11pm or £10 after.

You’d better be-weave it! THE WIG PARTY GOES TO TOYLAND SUNDAY 21ST OCTOBER, 6PM – MIDNIGHT

With THE WIG PARTY taking over West End venue Café de Paris this weekend, we hear from chairman Joshua Rafter who tells us why this year’s event is THEIR biggest yet. What are you looking forward to with this weekend’s event? Gosh, there are so many things going on at this year’s event, far more than ever before. To be honest I am looking forward to the opening of the show at 7.30pm as I have not seen any of the rehearsals and I’ve heard it’s a group of mini Wiggy Woos! I also think Ruth Brown launching our dance session will be pretty awesome too. What toy are you going as? The committee are this year split into toy soldiers and toy Indians. I will be one of the soldiers. What has support been like so far this year? I am still gob smacked at the sheer number of people who have come forward and given up their time to be both on the committee or to support the event in so many ways. As I

confess every year, without so many volunteers, supporters and sponsors as well as the pageant donors, the event would never actually take place. n The Wig Party is at Café de Paris, Coventry Street, W1. n Entry is £30 from www.wigparty.org.

WIN WIG PARTY TICKETS!

We have two pairs of tickets to give away! Just email your name and contact number, placing WIG PARTY in the subject field, to editor@boyz.co.uk before 5pm this Thursday (18 Oct). Winners will then need to collect the tickets from the Boyz office at 18 Brewer Street on Friday (19 Oct).

TRADING PLACES TRADE’S 22ND BIRTHDAY

Trade has been at this venue a couple of times before, when it was Arcadia. Why does it work well for you guys? We think this venue is very well suited for Trade as it has a very intimate feel and the lower ceilings make the rooms feel less vacuous than other venues where we’ve held parties. And with this venue now being an empty shell we decided it was perfect to put our Trade production into it. Our previous parties here, when it was Arcadia, were some of our favourites outside of Turnmills. Briefly explain your two special guests. Firstly we have Christian Smith. I first heard some of Christian’s productions in early 2008 and thought they were amazing. I managed to book him for Egg and found his set amazing, and he

CLUBS

has since played at Egg three times. I always keep an eye on his work and he has just released two amazing singles; one on Richie Hawtin’s Plus8 label and another on his label M-nus, two of the biggest techno labels out there. Secondly we have Rae from Defected. I always used to love Tonnic performing at Trade so we have reintroduced this with a fresher approach. Rae has played for me a few times at Egg and I thought she would be perfect to have at Trade with her dynamic vocals. Having said all of that, every DJ at Trade is a special guest.

Hannah Holland

How did Blocheads come about? Did you feel the need for a huge gay warehouse all-nighter was long overdue? Well, Tom and I went to check out the space and were blown away by it. What’s it like?

THEATRE

STAND UP MARGARET MARGARET CHO @ THE LEICESTER SQUARE THEATRE FRIDAY 26TH – WEDNESDAY 31ST OCTOBER, 7.30PM

Next weekend, one of the funniest people on the planet, Margaret Cho, takes to the stage at the Leicester Square Theatre for a run of hilarious shows, so we spoke to her about life, the US election and just how filthy her new show Mother really is. Over the years your own mother has featured a lot in your stand up work. Is she still a major inspiration for you? Yes, she is a major player in my work. Her voice is the voice of my Asian-ness and in this show she’s prominently featured. I think it’s great to have something that you are known for and then get to riff on it like a jazz musician. What other subjects do you cover in the show? I’m pleased to say it’s a filthy riot packed with raunch and nastiness. Loads of gay stuff – from every perspective including my first foray into drag and getting cruised by hot bears – to the sick addictions I have, my own journey with motherhood and anti-motherhood, bullying, Madonna vs. Lady Gaga… It’s a big show. How are you feeling about the upcoming US election? I am so concerned about the election. It’s very frightening in the US right now and I am not sure what is going to happen. I am also curious if Mitt Romney wears that special Mormon underwear? And I do think that he and Paul Ryan look like log cabin gays. And you are a supporter of President Obama? Yes, I worked on his campaign in 2008 and he’s come out in support of gay marriage, which is very important. There is so much homophobia that gets stirred up at the mere mention of gay marriage in the US. The Conservatives just do not see gay people as deserving of equality, and that is insane. In past shows you have talked about celebrity culture and then you were on Dancing with the Stars. How was the experience and has it given you a whole load of new material? It was a crazy show but I had fun and got to make fun of it, which is all that matters. I spent way too much time in the presence of the Palins, who are just the Alaskardashians. I got into a fight with Bristol for saying that her mother was using the platform of reality TV to prepare her run for the presidency, and I think that I actually may have made some kind of difference to the outcome as she didn’t end up running. Of course this is incredibly self-important but I think it’s true! What TV and music stuff do you have coming up? On TV, Drop Dead Diva is in its fourth

016

year and I also have done some work on 30 Rock, which was really interesting and I even got nominated for an Emmy for it. I have an album in the works, I’ve guested on lots of other records, recorded country ballads with Neil Hamburger and am on tour all over the world. It’s busy but I love it. What makes you laugh? And who do you admire? My favourite US comedians are Joan Rivers, Tig Notaro, Patton Oswalt, David Cross and my favourite Brit comedians are Dawn French, Matt Lucas and Paul Foote. Are you looking forward to being in London? Have you been out to any gay clubs here? London is amazing and I have been to Soho and the some of the clubs around there. I also love all the private clubs where I am not a member but somehow get in anyway. I have the Addison Lee iPhone app so I get around especially to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern which is my favorite – Duckie is fierce! I love shopping in Spitalfields and Brick Lane; London style cannot be beaten, it’s the best in the world. I have great friends in London too and a lover here and there. I can’t wait to visit! n The Leicester Square Theatre, 6 Leicester Place, WC2. n Get your advance tickets now from www.leicestersquaretheatre.com.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND SBN AFTERDARK

SATURDAY 20TH OCTOBER, 10PM – 4AM

Photograph © Dean Stockings/www.deanstockings.co.uk

Following its first Saturday night party a few weeks back, Stark Bollock Naked returns this weekend for another Afterdark special. Here, Hoist host Unkut Kurt explains the rise in popularity that is naked clubbing.

What makes your club stand out from other naked nights on the scene right now? It is the biggest and sexiest men-only naked party on the planet! Simple really. SBN has been running riot on the Vauxhall club scene for the past five years but until a few weeks ago was only limited to Sunday afternoons. More and more guys have been asking for a big, sexy and high profile Saturday night SBN with lots of shows and surprise guests, so here it is. And I can tell you that this one is going to be a fantastic and fun-fuelled, mind-blowing experience! How did you get into naked clubbing? I got into naked clubbing when one night I realised it’s more about the men and the connection to all those sexy studs than it is about what they wear. Stripped down, primitive and testosterone-fuelled manly fun! Simple. And so sexy. You always see what you get and I find that so much more satisfying in all sorts of ways. Plus you do not need to spend hundreds of pounds to get an expensive outfit. That’s quite refreshing in itself. Why should someone try naked clubbing? Because it’s fun! It’s sexy. It’s straight

020

to the point. And it’s something that can be very liberating. Just try it once. But I guarantee that after the first ten minutes at SBN Afterdark you will wonder why anybody ever bothered with clothes. How would you describe your clientele? The SBN boys are the sexiest bunch of guys on the planet! They’re fun, good looking and know what they want. They are friendly and a lot of them have cheeky smiles. And there are so many younger guys who join the party, guys in their 20s and 30s that do not want to go that heavy with fetish stuff but who still enjoy being around other sexy guys on a big horny night out. Have you noticed a rise in the number of younger guys starting to attend your club? Yes, definitely! SBN changed the game. It introduced the Hoist to a whole new generation of men. I

would say the majority of SBN boys are quite a bit younger than guys you would find in some other fetish venues, and a lot of them combine SBN Afterdark with going to a big dance club in Vauxhall afterwards. But at the same time we enjoy seeing a lot of more traditional fetish guys in their 40s and so on who quite like to go naked every now and then just for the pure fun of it. What have you got lined up this Saturday as entertainment? We have a hot, hot, hot live sex show courtesy on Alpha Male on around half past midnight as well as steaming go-go boys dancing the night away

from the very beginning. We have lots of special offers at the bar, the Shirtless Wonder will be serving free stud shots all night, and best of all we have the freshest and best new sounds around. What’s not to like? n SBN Afterdark is at The Hoist, 47c South Lambeth Road, Vauxhall, SW8. n Entry is £12 and includes a free drink and coat check.

THE NUDE WAY TO CLUB

With numbers of guys attending nude clubs on the rise, we take a look at several of the best naked parties in London right now, speaking to NUDITY promoter David Jaxx, BUFF AND MA1 founder Alan Roberts and BUTT NAKED’s Mitch.

NUDITY

Every 2nd and 4th Friday with occasional Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons What makes your club stand out from other naked nights on the scene? Nudity has always been a dance club with great music, lighting and super DJs, and this is the most important difference between us and other naked events on the scene. There is something very liberating and rather naughty about being naked with a load of other guys, but once you start dancing it becomes much more fun! Our special events such as oil wrestling and our famous foam parties help us to stand out too, but most importantly we pride ourselves on being relaxed, welcoming and a little bit silly. It’s your 6th birthday this weekend too… Yes, Nudity is one of the longest running of all the naked clubs in London, and this weekend we are celebrating our sixth year with a huge foam party. Why should someone try naked clubbing? Well, being among 200 to 500 naked men is never a bad thing! We understand that it can be very nerve-wracking on a first visit so we work hard to help people relax. Our members are very friendly too! We always say it’s ten minutes of sheer terror followed by three hours of amazing fun once you realise just how exciting and natural it feels to be naked. How would you describe your clientele? Naked and brave, all ages, shapes, sizes and colours. It’s great! n Nudity is at Union, 66 Albert Embankment, Vauxhall, SE1. n www.nudityclub.co.uk

BUFF

BUFF

Every Sunday [except the 1st Sunday of the month], every Wednesday and every Saturday What makes your club stand out from other naked nights on the scene? We’re a friendly club that prides itself on welcoming anyone of any size, shape or colour. We have an area for socialising, a smoking area and many darker corners. Why should someone try naked clubbing? Because you don’t have to buy anything – no rubber, army kit or leather – just turn up in your birthday suit and play! How would you describe your clientele? We have all sorts in, from soldiers and skinheads right up to vicars, muscle lads, normal sized lads and even ‘straight’ boys off the local estates looking for cock. Everyone gets on with each other and we have no attitude. Have you noticed a rise in the number of younger guys starting to attend your club? We do get a number of all ages and people are realising that gay dating sites and dating apps are getting a bit long in the tooth when you can meet people in the flesh at Buff and in the buff! Why go through all that chitchat when you can come down and see what you are getting for real? n Buff is at The Backstreet, Wentworth Mews, Mile End, E3. n www.ma1.co.uk/buff.html

022

BUTT NAKED

Every Monday from 6pm – 10pm and every 2nd, 4th & 5th Wednesday from 6pm – 10pm What makes your club stand out from other naked nights on the scene? It’s a central, easy to get to and from, and we offer a relaxed, attitude-free policy that makes people feel at ease. Butt Naked is also one of the cheapest naked clubs in London. It’s fun and sexy yet intimate. Have you noticed a rise in the number of younger guys starting to attend your club? We have definitely noticed younger guys attending Butt Naked. We offer a student discount – at present it’s free entry before 7pm for October and November – to encourage younger guys to give the club a try, but we feel it’s also important to be inclusive and welcome everyone. n Butt Naked is in the Underground Club at Central Station, 37 Wharfdale Road, King’s Cross, N1. n www.butt-naked.biz

‘Phenomenal is the only way to describe Leona Lewis. It’s always been important to me that an artist doesn’t compromise themselves when performing at G-A-Y so I was really proud to have a worldwide star like Leona perform a proper live set, especially the acoustic version of ‘Collide’ which was just stunning. And not forgetting Carolynne Poole, who was also fantastic. She may have been first voted off the X Factor but that won’t stop her being first to have a hit single.’ G-A-Y’s Jeremy Joseph

FRIDAY 12TH OCTOBER Thank God for Fridays and thank God for KU KLUB! We began our weekend with a visit to Ku on Lisle Street, starting in the friendly main bar area before descending to the busy club space downstairs. Both were packed out with a fine selection of the season’s tastiest hotties both sides of the bar, although the bar boys seemed to lose their shirts much more quickly. There was also great pop, chart R&B and commercial hits from DJs DMS and Alvaro and we had a great, fun night out - the perfect way to start the weekend. We love you Ku! n Ku Klub is open every day of the week in the basement of Ku Bar, 30 Lisle Street, WC2.

WITH DR

ALAN McOWAN Our Boyz Doc is Dr Alan McOwan, the lead clinician at 56 Dean Street and a specialist in sexual health and HIV. Dear Dr Alan, Where do I start? I’m mixed race and have always known I’m gay. For years I lived with my mum, but now live in a gay house share. Life is hard. I work long hours and don’t have many other gay friends. Having kids has always been important to me. Years ago there was a women I loved who I wish I’d had a child with, but sadly she died of cancer. If I donate my sperm do I have any rights to be involved? Can I adopt? FIDEL Dear Fidel, Thanks for writing. It sounds like thing’s have been quite tough. I’m sorry to hear you are having a difficult time. Clearly having children is really important to you. It does sound like you have a lot of love to give. I think it’s fair to say that most women using a regular sperm bank aren’t looking for the male to be closely involved in bringing up the child. However there are other options. There are several gay friendly organisations that attempt to link prospective parents for sperm donation. It’s up to them to agree how much each will be involved in the child’s upbringing. An example is www.prideangel.com. Gay people can certainly adopt. There are loads of children

out there who need a loving home. I can’t pretend to be an expert in this area, but I know the charity Barnardo’s has an equality policy that actively supports gay parenting (www.barnardos.org. uk). It’s website also positively encourages prospective black and mixed race adoptive parents. It might be worth contacting them for advice. However, I assume that living in a house share and your long working hours would be an issue that you’d need to address. You say that your working hours are really long, but have you any free time? How about getting involved in a local youth group or sports team? Many kids and teenagers are searching for a father figure or positive role model. Maybe that person is you.

n If you have any questions or worries about any aspect of sexual health or gay sex which you would like Dr Alan to answer please send an email to boyzdoc@boyz. co.uk. All emails are treated confidentially. We regret Dr Alan cannot answer emails personally. n THURSDAY 18TH OCTOBER 2012

THE BIG GAY LIFESTYLE SHOW THE BIG GAY LIFESTYLE SHOW

SATURDAY 20TH OCTOBER, 11AM – 8PM THE BIG GAY LIFESTYLE SHOW takes place this weekend and, as well as SHOWCASING entertainment and other activities, it’ll also be offering sexual health advice, information and on-the-spot screenings. Marketing director Uwern Jong explains more. You’re exhibiting several sexual health organisations – why is this important? Sexual health within the LGBT community is of particular importance for obvious reasons. By being aware of the health risks, prevention methods and having relevant checks, you can stay healthy and reduce your risk of illness. Whilst LGBT people have the same health needs as their straight counterparts, research shows that people with same-sex partners may have a higher risk of contracting certain conditions. LGBT people may also not be as open to their GPs about their sexual orientation, so it may be less likely that they take advantage of mainstream screening. Recent research also show that the number of LGBT people taking advantage of sexual health checks has reduced year on year and the Big Gay Lifestyle Show is the perfect opportunity to engage this audience on the

It takes two to tango, but only one to vom on someone’s unmentionables when you’re giving them a drunken blowie. This is the final week the Sun is in Libra, so make sure you don’t waste the romantic opportunities coming your way by getting wasted and being a tit. Top Tip: Stay sober(ish). Passion Rating: eeeee

Taurus

If at first you don’t succeed, just keep fucking it up. Is that what you really want? Yes, perseverance is a great quality, but this week think whether that something or someone you’ve been pursuing is really worth it. Jupiter in retrograde means now is the time for a rethink. Top Tip: Don’t waste your time. Passion Rating: eeeee Libra and the Sun say it’s time to clean up your life. This could mean ditching a mate who takes the piss out of you, coming clean to your boyf about how you want to headbutt his best mate, or finally

importance of sexual health. What will they be offering? Sexual health exhibitors will be offering advice, guidance and in-confidence screening opportunities. A mobile, on-location community clinic from the Chelsea and Westminster NHS trust will be positioned right outside the show venue so members of the community can get check-ups on the spot. What sexual health organisations and charities have confirmed they are taking part? The Chelsea and Westminster NHS Trust, 56 Dean Street, Cliniq, the Orange Clinic and the West London Centre for Sexual Health.

Cancer

The Libran New Moon has just passed, so you should now know what you want this autumn. Yes, yes, we know your answer is sloppy bum sex, but besides that think about more long-term things, like saying goodbye to those cunty flatmates or starting a hobby that doesn’t include touching yourself. Top Tip: Grab what you want. Passion Rating: eeeee

Leo

Venus in Virgo means pleasure will be at the top of your agenda this week. No surprise there. After all, only Leo walks around Waitrose with a shopping list that includes lovely things, nibbly bits and lube. This week, be sure to treat yourself to a new slut top for clubbing, as you could meet a nice gentleman. Top Tip: Indulge yourself. Passion Rating: eeeee

Virgo

If you’re honest, your love life has been like a big, wet guff lately. The guy you want to pork in life couldn’t give a damn about you, whilst the sex you’ve been having has been about as fun as a game of nude Twister with Dot Cotton. Don’t lose heart. Venus in Virgo means you’ll

Libra

We all know the New Year starts in January, but Libra’s personal New Year began this Monday. We recommend kicking things off by getting together all your mates – and that guy you fancy – for a Halloween house party. Just make sure your costume is sexy. Dressing as Miss Marple might be fun, but it won’t help you pull that fella. Top Tip: Plan a party. Passion Rating: eeeee

Scorpio

A huge shift has just occurred in your chart: Saturn will now be in your zodiac for the next 30 years, so it’s time to get moing. Propose to your man, or dump him if he’s a goon. Save up for a house deposit or escape to the countryside if that’s your dream. No, you don’t have to do it tomorrow or next week, but now’s the time to plan. Top Tip: Plan life. Passion Rating: eeeee

Sagittarius

Not many people have seen the monster in Sagi’s pants and regretted it. But that other monster – the green-eyed one – will be the ruin of you unless you keep your shit together this weekend. A jealous boyfriend is the least sexy thing on earth after a munter in a mankini, so don’t bite your tongue and retain your dignity.

Top Tip: Ditch jealousy. Passion Rating: eeeee

Capricorn

This week you’re gagging for it so much you could lose control and actually twist off your own nipples. Try to keep control during this high state of arousal. If you get fired from work for leaving a nasty stain on your office chair from rubbing your undercarriage on it too aggressively, don’t come crying to us. Top Tip: Keep control. Passion Rating: eeeee

Aquarius

Thanks to Libra, you have one more week of open-minded exploration in you before the hard work of autumn take over. But as well as exploring men’s naughty bits, try looking inwards for once (and no, we don’t mean squatting over a handmirror). Instead, ask yourself where you could be nicer to yourself and others, then do it. Top Tip: Be kinder. Passion Rating: eeeee

Pisces

Together Saturn and Jupiter are telling us you’re setting your sights far too low. Are you secretly having a relationship with a blow-up doll instead of a real person? This week, live your life knowing that you’re a hot little thing, no matter what your bastard ex-boyfriend says. Top Tip: Love yourself. Passion Rating: eeeee
