Short shot #53: /b/ing there

Recently I mentioned San Francisco Blow Buddies in passing. It’s a place for safe sex for gay and bisexual men, a No Fuck zone in nice surroundings.

A few years ago, a gay friend of mine was visiting in San Francisco and several of the locals gathered to spend some time with him. He’s an incredibly enthusiastic guy. On this occasion he was bubbling over with a report of going to the “Beer Bust at Blow Buddies”. He said it over and over, just to enjoy the sounds. All those /b/’s, all those bilabial stops in happy alliteration! You’ve got to work both lips just to say it!

Beer Bust at Blow Buddies! Be there!
