  1. I'm sure there's more victims who haven't reported it to police.

  2. Being gay is becoming less fun. I see a trend evolving.

  3. The "trend" has always been heterosexuals attacking gay people.

  4. This methodology is older than the world. People bringing complete strangers to their homes. And sometimes they are sketchy as hell, but that adds "straightness" to some people, lol.

    Yet, there are always fresh victims. Oh, the stories. Lucky the ones who only were robbed.

  5. I'm sure the bait was better looking than anything in the bar.

  6. hi
    yes this can happen, and it has happened to people i know. the perps even had sex with the people im thinking of. when they woke up all the electronics (phones, laptops, etc) were gone, as were the guests.
    it is sad that some people find this possibility to be exciting.

  7. Hide your electronics before you get down in Beantown.

  8. specifically how are the people drugged, I wonder? Do they insert sedatives rectally with a finger? It would seem odd for a guest to offer a host a drink.

  9. Another good reasons to avoid one night stands.

  10. Let me guess, the victims are older gay men picking up barely legal rough trade.

  11. @Rob: There are all kinds of ways it could be done:
    I can hypothetically imagine a guest showing up at the door with two wine, glasses, a screw-top bottle of wine, and some potato chips and home-made dip. After a glass of wine, he says to the host, "hey, you've got some scotch and a can of root beer; sit tight and let me mix you MY specialty." Later he pulls out "aspirin" and insists the host take one because "it will cancel out any hangover tomorrow."
    In that example, the drug could be in the wine or in the dip or slipped into the drink (he could even slip it into a drink made by the HOST while the host is in the bathroom or kichen for 10 seconds), or of course in the "aspirin."

  12. When will people learn that it is not a good idea to bring complete strangers you know nothing about into your home.

  13. Holy jesus, that's terrifying, I hope this guy is stopped.
