For everyone else, remember last week when I said I’d be going to a muscle bear lube wrestling contest? Well, I did, and it was awesome. A tad more skin than I was expecting, but also weirdly a lot less sexy than I was expecting. It turned out being a lot like a high school wrestling match, just with greased up guys slipping and sliding around the mat, and very flirty crowd getting drunk and hooting & hollering. I was a little worried about the fact that the guys were wrestling on stage without barriers to protect them from falling off the stage or into the huge mirrored wall behind them. However, no one was injured, and it all worked out just fine.
Proceeds from admission went to support a local charity that helps people suffering with HIV & AIDS to afford food and basic comforts. In addition to the door take, each of the contestants’ jock straps, which were donated by a local sporting goods store, were also auctioned off for charity after the contestant left the competition. The event was a success, and there were lots of little breaks between matches, perfect opportunities for short drag routines (fabulous) and a roaming “shot bear” to come around with jello shots. My friends and I had a great time.
