Amuka is best known in gay clubland<br />

for “Appreciate Me,” her #1 hit with<br />

the late, great Peter Rauhofer.<br />

This month, she has joined forces<br />

with NYC-based super-producer<br />

Robert Cotnoir of Grapefruit Sound<br />

Lab for a song that could be the<br />

slogan for next year’s Democratic<br />

convention. “Don’t Fall for It” is a<br />

rally cry against Trump and all his<br />

nutty rhetoric. The song is the first<br />

single off of the upcoming Grapefruit<br />

Sound Lab album “Eight Days Across<br />

America,” and it’s already in the top<br />

25 on the Billboard dance chart - and<br />

rising. We spoke with the legendary<br />

dancefloor icon from her home in<br />

Detroit.<br />

INTERVIEW > > > > ><br />

Why does America need a<br />

song like “Don’t Fall for It”<br />

now more than ever?<br />

We must work to bring us<br />

back together as a nation.<br />

What better way than through<br />

music?<br />

Is it time we impeach<br />

Trump?<br />

We are indeed a nation<br />

divided, and we have to do<br />

whatever it takes to bring us<br />

back together. Division only<br />

weakens us. We have to ask,<br />

what does America really<br />

stand for? I believe America<br />

is wounded, and we have to<br />

stop the bleeding before we<br />

have nothing to save for our<br />

children. No one is above<br />

our laws in the Constitution,<br />

which includes the president.<br />

If he is found guilty, and the<br />

case is made, he has to be<br />

responsible for his actions<br />

like any other person who<br />

commits a crime.<br />

Why do you think half of<br />

America believes Trump’s<br />

lies?<br />

He is a master of disguise<br />

and never admits<br />

wrongdoing, even if the truth<br />

is staring him in the face.

I also think it’s very<br />

difficult (for those who<br />

voted him into office)<br />

to admit they made a<br />

mistake, and they will<br />

ride with it until the<br />

wheels fall off, if need<br />

be.<br />

His most repeated<br />

claim is that his<br />

border wall is being<br />

built. What are your<br />

thoughts on the<br />

wall and Trump’s<br />

immigration policy?<br />

How is it OK to deem<br />

one man’s life more<br />

worthy of living than<br />

another? We are all<br />

one, and no one man<br />

is better than another.<br />

Putting people in camps<br />

and snatching and<br />

abusing women and<br />

children is appalling.<br />

There is absolutely<br />

no justification for<br />

treating other human<br />

beings with such a lack<br />

of concern for their<br />

wellbeing.<br />

He has said he has<br />

nothing to hide<br />

from the Russia<br />

investigation. Do you<br />

believe him?<br />

I believe he was made<br />

an offer he could not<br />

refuse: The Trump<br />

Tower Moscow deal.<br />

I believe they dug up<br />

dirt on Hillary quid<br />

pro quo, just like what<br />

is happening with<br />

Ukraine and Joe Biden.<br />

I believe he thought<br />

he was getting away<br />

with it, and he decided<br />

to test fate and try it<br />

again. The truth always<br />

outruns a lie, and<br />

karma is real. These<br />

are principles that<br />

never change. I have<br />

watched him contradict<br />

himself so many times,<br />

I have lost count. That<br />

makes it very difficult<br />

to believe anything he<br />

says. His integrity is<br />

nonexistent.<br />

Is Trump the main<br />

reason you decided<br />

to record “Don’t Fall<br />

for It”?<br />

The moment Bobby<br />

[Cotnoir, of Grapefruit<br />

Sound Lab] presented<br />

the song to me, I knew<br />

we had something<br />

special. Its message of<br />

“love yourself enough<br />

to never toy with<br />

disaster” resonated with<br />

me. I once fell for two<br />

people proposing two<br />

projects, one a movie<br />

and one a scripted<br />

series. Both were<br />

smoke and mirrors, and<br />

I was fortunate enough<br />

to realize it before I<br />

signed anything. Be<br />

very careful who you<br />

give your time and<br />

energy to. Pay attention<br />

whenever that little<br />

warning voice shows up<br />

and says “don’t do it.”<br />

I especially love when<br />

you take us to church<br />

with the lyric, “Thank<br />

you, Lord, for giving<br />

us another day.”<br />

Every day we wake up<br />

is a blessing indeed.<br />

I am a spiritual being,<br />

and I do not judge<br />

people for where they<br />

are on their spiritual<br />

journey. I know where<br />

I am on mine. I thank<br />

God for the ability to<br />

express myself through<br />

the gift of music.<br />

Last question: Who<br />

among the current<br />

list of Democratic<br />

candidates are you<br />

liking the most?<br />

Well, judging from<br />

what happens when an<br />

amateur is at the helm,<br />

I’d like someone who is<br />

well seasoned. We all<br />

know what’s going on<br />

behind that curtain, and<br />

this is not “The Wizard<br />

of Oz.”<br />

‘What Do Diana Ross, Sylvia Miles<br />

and Non-Binary Have in Common?’<br />

Superstar journalist, actor, TV and film star, singer and nightlife<br />

personality Michael Musto is about to get extremely busy. I have a<br />

relentless urge to introduce the esteemed former Village Voice, New<br />

York Times and <strong>Out</strong> columnist—who now writes for NewNowNext—as<br />

a former club kid, movie actor, music video celebrity, TV personality<br />

and favorite nightlife hero, but New York already considers him a<br />

household name.<br />

I absolutely adore speaking with Musto, because he is edgy, creative,<br />

always has something going on and is a complete blast.<br />

Where should we<br />

start?<br />

Sylvia Miles was pretty<br />

much my first celebrity<br />

once I got out of<br />

college in the ‘70s. At<br />

the time I worked for<br />

a fan magazine, and<br />

I was obsessed with<br />

Sylvia Miles, because<br />

I used to read about<br />

her in the gossip<br />

columns every day.<br />

When John Simon,<br />

that horrible, hateful<br />

critic, wrote that Sylvia<br />

was a gate crasher—<br />

in other words, a<br />

party crasher—I loved<br />

reading that she<br />

went up to him in a<br />

restaurant and poured<br />

a plate of pasta on his<br />

head.<br />

I love her already.<br />

So I asked if I could<br />

interview her for the<br />

fan magazine I worked<br />

for, and it worked<br />

out. I took her to the<br />

Russian Tea Room, and<br />

we became friends.<br />

I went with her to<br />

Studio 54, and she was<br />

a very complicated<br />

person. At Studio 54<br />

she would just run up<br />

to directors and beg<br />

them to hire her, and<br />

she would chase down<br />


So I felt a little bit like I was hanging<br />

out with Norma Desmond. I did<br />

like her glamour and her style. So<br />

we are having a memorial that is<br />

being organized by her niece and<br />

by Mauricio Padilla, MAO PR, at the<br />

Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln<br />

Center. It’s on the 21st of <strong>November</strong><br />

at noon. I will be giving the opening<br />

remarks, and then I’m going to<br />

emcee the rest of it.<br />

Was she a singer, actress?<br />

She was an actress with two<br />

Academy nominations. One was for<br />

“Midnight Cowboy,” and the other<br />

was for “Farewell My Lovely.” She was<br />

also on Broadway, including “Night of<br />

the Iguana.” She was a real New York<br />

fixture. Anyone who was around in<br />

the ‘70s and ‘80s in New York knew<br />

her. She was in the columns every<br />

day, she was at every event, she was<br />

just one of those New York people,<br />

like Andy Warhol. She worked for<br />

Andy Warhol. She was in a movie<br />

called “Heat.” That’s another thing<br />

I loved about her—she was doing<br />

Academy Award movies and she<br />

was doing Warhol films, and she was<br />

doing Broadway. She was on “All My<br />

Children” for a while too. She was<br />

in “She Devil.” She stole that movie.<br />

“Wall Street.” She was in a million<br />

movies. Sylvia was everywhere. She<br />

was one of the most well-known<br />

personalities in New York. She was in<br />

her ‘90s when she died.<br />

Awww.<br />

The last few years she wasn’t<br />

going out at all. She was pretty<br />

homebound.<br />

Did you remain friends until she<br />

died?<br />

Mauricio would go visit her and<br />

would report back to me. He would<br />

send me pictures of her and report<br />

back on how she was doing. The day<br />

before she died I had announced that<br />

Sylvia was going to play my mother<br />

in “Japanese Borscht” by Eric Rivas.<br />

Geraldine Smith is another actress<br />

from Warhol films, and she was<br />

a dear friend of Sylvia’s. She got<br />

Sylvia to play my mother, and then<br />

the next day Sylvia died. It was<br />

really sad, but Eric Rivas put a<br />

video montage in the movie. That’s<br />

how the movie ends, with a tribute<br />

to her. It was really sweet.<br />

Before that you have Diana.<br />

What’s that about?<br />

I love Diana Ross. She’s my #1<br />

celebrity of all time, like you love<br />

Adam Ant. Diana is my Adam Ant.<br />

I always joke that I turned gay as<br />

a kid in the ‘60s when I saw the<br />

show “Tarzan” with Ron Ely, this<br />

hot guy in a loincloth. There was<br />

one episode where they had Diana<br />

and the Supremes as nuns in Africa.<br />

That made me not only gay but<br />

the gayest kid in Bensonhurst,<br />

Brooklyn. Everything about them<br />

made me gay. I followed her career,<br />

and I just adored her.

She just glitters and she sparkles.<br />

I was there for the Central Park<br />

concert when the skies opened up.<br />

It rained, and people stampeded in<br />

the mud—it was really dangerous.<br />

So I just sat there for a while,<br />

because Diana Ross didn’t leave the<br />

stage. I had like a private Diana Ross<br />

concert. She was telling everyone<br />

to calm down, because the rain<br />

makes the flowers grow. She was<br />

very inspiring. I felt bad for her,<br />

because everybody was running and<br />

abandoning her. I went to a party<br />

for her on the Intrepid boat, and I<br />

decided that I had to meet her. I had<br />

never met her, and I was wondering,<br />

“How am I going to go up to her?”,<br />

and she came up to me. She said,<br />

“Hi, I am Diana Ross.” I said, “I know.”<br />

We talked a little bit about her<br />

album and some of the songs on it.<br />

That must have been an epic<br />

experience for you.<br />

It really was. I met her and David<br />

Bowie, and those were two of my<br />

top, and Patty Duke was another<br />

one. I’m at 99% of my idols. For<br />

some reason I just wanted a tribute<br />

to Diana Ross. If you notice, she’s<br />

always getting awards. She<br />

was touring last year, and<br />

I pitched it to some other<br />

promoter two years ago,<br />

and he never got it together.<br />

So then I went to Danny<br />

Nardicio, who was totally into<br />

it. He kicked ass and got it<br />

together. This will take place<br />

on Saturday, <strong>November</strong> 9, at<br />

8 p.m. It’s a benefit for “Black<br />

Lives Matter.” From 7 to 8<br />

there will be a meet and greet<br />

from the cast for the people<br />

who buy the $40 tickets. It will<br />

be an all-star tribute. I’m not<br />

sure if I’m going to sing “Love<br />

Child” or “You Can’t Hurry<br />

Love,” or maybe more than<br />

one song. I know the entire<br />

catalog, believe me.<br />

You could do a medley.<br />

Just wind me up. Then there<br />

wouldn’t be room for anybody else.<br />

I would do everything from “Where<br />

Did Our Love Go” to “Endless Love.”<br />

I could easily just get up there now<br />

and do it. I grew up as a little gay<br />

lip-syncing to Diana Ross in my<br />

bedroom. I was always different<br />

from the other kids, just like a “love<br />

child.”<br />

When did you suspect that you<br />

were gay?<br />

I was 12 or 13, but I wasn’t 100%<br />

sure, because I didn’t know<br />

what it even meant. You know,<br />

Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, is not the<br />

most progressive place in the world.<br />

Especially not in the 1960s. It was<br />

a very old-school Italian-American<br />

neighborhood, where gay just<br />

wasn’t on anybody’s radar. In fact,<br />

my parents had a medical book, and<br />

I looked up homosexuality, and it<br />

said it was a mental illness. At that<br />

point it was considered a mental<br />

illness. This is before Stonewall. Even<br />

after Stonewall, that didn’t exactly<br />

impact Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, right<br />

away, believe me.

Did you walk around thinking that<br />

you were mentally ill?<br />

No, I knew I wasn’t mentally ill, but<br />

I thought, “What am I going to do<br />

about these feelings? Maybe they<br />

will go away.” For a second I thought<br />

maybe I liked women, because I<br />

would look at these little travel<br />

brochures, and there were women in<br />

bathing suits, and I thought, “They<br />

are kind of cute.” They were the ones<br />

with no breasts. They looked like<br />

guys. Then I had to realize that this is<br />

not the way it’s going, I’m definitely<br />

gay. Once I went to Columbia at age<br />

16, I found a whole community, which<br />

I didn’t know existed. The media had<br />

portrayed gays as sad, lonely people.<br />

At Columbia, I saw open gays who<br />

were attractive. They were holding<br />

hands, they were making out, and I<br />

realized at that point there’s a future<br />

for me. There was a community, there<br />

was a family. I tell everyone, just go<br />

over that bridge, but of course now<br />

you have to go back to Brooklyn<br />

where fabulous is happening.<br />

Brooklyn is like the new Manhattan.<br />

I’m not going back. I couldn’t wait to<br />

get out.<br />

It’s a good time to segue into that<br />

gender medley you do.<br />

I guest-star with Dorothy Bishop at<br />

the Dozen Divas Show at The Triad,<br />

and I introduced it there. It starts<br />

out with “Stand By Your Them”<br />

(“Stand By Your Man”), then it goes<br />

to “Spawn of a Preacher” instead of<br />

“Son of a Preacher Man,” and then<br />

“It’s Raining Them” by “The Weather<br />

People.” Then I end up with “We<br />

Just Wanna Have Fun.” First I did it<br />

with Dorothy’s show, and then I did<br />

it again at a club called Norwood on<br />

14th Street. Now it’s one of my set<br />

pieces where I could just go out and<br />

do it.<br />

I love it!<br />

I can’t do it for the Diana Ross show,<br />

though. It won’t make a lot of sense.



The Camera Loves Helix Model<br />

Alex Riley - and the Feeling Is Mutual<br />

Dallas native Alex Riley has five survival tips for<br />

anyone considering a career in adult film. The first:<br />

Make sure that you’re comfortable with people<br />

knowing you work in adult film. The years of having<br />

a hidden porn career are over. Movies last forever,<br />

and you can’t unfilm a scene.<br />

Second, hydrocortisone cream is a necessity.<br />

(Huh?)<br />

Third: Be yourself on camera. Don’t pretend you’re<br />

a big, dominant top when you’re really a hungry<br />

bottom, because fans can spot a phony on their<br />

computer screen. Also, be cool around the other<br />

models when you’re not on cam.<br />

Fourth: Have fun! Enjoy the exotic locales and the<br />

wild and crazy guys you get to hang out with while<br />

on set. Alex says he makes it a vacation every time<br />

he heads out to film.<br />

And last: Work out your body. It’s important to stay<br />

in shape, because they’re not kidding when they<br />

say the camera packs on extra pounds.<br />

We spoke with Riley in Las Vegas while he was on<br />

the set of his next Helix Studios film.<br />

INTERVIEW >>><br />

What compelled you to<br />

get into adult film?<br />

There was a moment in the<br />

fourth grade that I knew<br />

I wanted to get into adult<br />

films. I was watching a<br />

clip on my grandmother’s<br />

computer thinking, “Wow.<br />

I want to be one of those<br />

guys one day!”<br />

Tell us about growing up<br />

in Dallas.<br />

As a child, discipline,<br />

respect, school and sports<br />

were my whole life. My<br />

baby brother and I lived<br />

with my grandparents<br />

from, I believe, the middle<br />

of fourth grade until the<br />

middle of ninth grade. We<br />

lived with my mom for all of<br />

the other years before and<br />

after. I’ve never met my<br />

father, but it’s never been<br />

something that’s made me<br />

feel weird or different. As<br />

far as sports, I excelled in<br />

football, cross-country and<br />

track & field. Being good<br />

at sports didn’t necessarily<br />

make me popular in high<br />

school, but I was well<br />

known and liked.

Do your mom and<br />

grandparents know about<br />

your adult film career?<br />

Yes, I’ve told everyone,<br />

including close friends, and,<br />

for the most part, all have<br />

been supportive. I’ve learned<br />

to totally ignore mean things<br />

that people say to, or about,<br />

me. They have their lives and<br />

shouldn’t be worrying about<br />

mine.<br />

Who is the real Alex Riley<br />

when the cameras are off?<br />

I’m pretty much the same<br />

crazy, giggly, ADHD young<br />

man that I am on camera. I’m<br />

smiling and laughing a solid<br />

23 hours of any given day and<br />

eating snacks like it’s no one’s<br />

business.<br />

What is the best thing about<br />

porn?<br />

The people and the traveling.<br />

Traveling is so much fun, and<br />

I’ve had sex with some really<br />

hot guys that have become<br />

close friends.<br />

Worst?<br />

It can be physically draining<br />

at times. Luckily, I love what<br />

I do, so the worst isn’t really<br />

that bad, yenno?<br />

Weirdest place you’ve had<br />

sex?<br />

On the third story rooftop of<br />

my last boyfriend’s parent’s<br />

house.<br />

What is one thing your fans<br />

would be most surprised to<br />

learn about you?<br />

My nationality. I’m black,<br />

Caucasian and Italian.<br />

What is your least favorite<br />

part on a guy?<br />

Hole hair. A clean-shaven hole<br />

is unbeatable.<br />

Life motto?<br />

I’m the superstar of my own<br />

life, and I decide my future.<br />

What makes you angry?<br />

Uncalled for disrespect. Also,<br />

slow walkers and people that<br />

take the good things in life for<br />

granted.<br />

You can the run the world<br />

for a day. What would you<br />

do?<br />

I would go on national<br />

television and act like an<br />

absolute child until someone<br />

stopped me!<br />

Who would play you in a<br />

movie of your life?<br />

Cameron Boyce, before he<br />

passed away.<br />

When was the last time you<br />

cried?<br />

I cried a couple of days ago<br />

when I started thinking about<br />

myself and about how well<br />

my life is going. Then I prayed<br />

and started crying some<br />

more. I normally only cry for<br />

good purposes.<br />

What is your most treasured<br />

possession?<br />

I have a box at home that<br />

is completely full of sports<br />

items that I’ve been collecting<br />

my entire life. It’s packed<br />

with NFL helmets, posters,<br />

books, footballs, cards and<br />

autographed memorabilia.<br />

If you could give your<br />

younger self a piece of<br />

advice, what would it be?<br />

Work hard. Be smart. Go be<br />

great, and no matter what,<br />

remain humble!<br />

What items have you<br />

checked off your bucket<br />

list?<br />

None yet, sadly.<br />

What items do you have on<br />

your bucket list?<br />

I want to buy a home. A car. I<br />

want to invest in a company.<br />

I want a dog of my own!<br />

I want to go to Ibiza and<br />

get drunk with friends on a<br />

yacht. I’d also like to visit San<br />

Francisco, Cabo, Vancouver<br />

and Italy! I want to experience<br />

skydiving.<br />

That’s some list!<br />

I have a lot of life yet to live.<br />

Ashton Summers<br />

admits he’s always<br />

had a thing for people<br />

watching him while he’s<br />

having sex. The tall,<br />

athletic and extraordinarily<br />

personable former<br />

dancer - he shimmies to<br />

everything from jazz to<br />

hip-hop to classic ballet<br />

every twink-lover’s dream.<br />

He’s very active on his<br />

socials and loves to give<br />

his fans what they want:<br />

more photos! His tips<br />

to young twinks who<br />

aspire to follow in his<br />

footsteps: be nice,<br />

professional and<br />

respectful of people’s<br />

time. That’s sound<br />

advice for everyone!

INTERVIEW >>><br />

The new photos are<br />

spectacular, Ashton.<br />

Thanks! I wasn’t expecting<br />

What did you have to do<br />

I didn’t do anything except<br />

comb my hair as nicely as<br />

possible and pose.<br />

always loved you?<br />

Growing up, I was<br />

always kinda shy in<br />

front of the camera.<br />

When I first started<br />

modeling, it was hard<br />

to come out of my<br />

shell. Now it’s pretty<br />

easy!<br />

Were you always so<br />

lean and muscular?<br />

Yes, I grew up in<br />

sports. Did them<br />

my whole life. As a<br />

kid, my teams and<br />

friends were always<br />

my biggest support<br />

system.<br />

Were you close<br />

with your family?<br />

Yes, my family has<br />

also been supportive.<br />

Even with my career<br />

decisions. When my<br />

mother found out<br />

I was doing adult<br />

films, she was most<br />

concerned that I was<br />

doing it safely.

What led to your<br />

career in adult film?<br />

I studied architecture in<br />

college. It was intense.<br />

I had no time for friends<br />

or a full-time job. I<br />

literally had no social<br />

life. I needed a way to<br />

pay my tuition.<br />

What do you love<br />

most about the<br />

adult industry?<br />

I get to meet a lot of<br />

people, and it’s<br />

really fun.<br />

Biggest turn-on?<br />

<strong>Out</strong>door sex.<br />

And turn-off?<br />

Weird smells. Also, someone<br />

who doesn’t have good hygiene.<br />

Worst pick-up line someone<br />

has said to you?<br />

“I can’t wait to be in you,” or<br />

“I want you in me.” I’m<br />

more of a<br />

romantic.<br />

What is the most<br />

difficult part about<br />

your job?<br />

Not eating all day<br />

if I’m preparing for<br />

a bottoming scene.<br />

It’s a nightmare!<br />

Deep down, I’m<br />

a fatty.<br />

How would<br />

(or does)<br />

your Grindr<br />

profile<br />

read?<br />

Um, well,<br />

honestly,<br />

I have no<br />

idea!<br />

What<br />

superhero<br />

do you most<br />

identify with?<br />

Superman,<br />

because he<br />

flies, and<br />

I’m a free<br />


What would a film of your<br />

life be called, and who<br />

would star as you in it?<br />

It would be called “The<br />

Truth” and star me,<br />

of course.<br />

What’s your<br />

life motto?<br />

Huh?<br />

Skip it. What makes<br />

you smile?<br />

Everything, even the not<br />

very good things.<br />

What is the most beloved item of<br />

clothing in your wardrobe?<br />

None! I wouldn’t count any of my<br />

clothes as important.<br />

Which celebrity would you most<br />

like to slide into your DMs?<br />

Shawn Mendes. Such a cutie!<br />

You’ve been abducted by<br />

aliens. What is your parting<br />

message to planet Earth?<br />

You could’ve done better!<br />

What makes you angry?<br />

Hunger.<br />

Your house is<br />

on fire. What one<br />

possession would<br />

you save?<br />

My dog.<br />

You’ve been given 24<br />

hours to live. How do<br />

you spend your day?<br />

Doing what I love<br />

with the who I love.<br />

You can travel back in time.<br />

Where would you go, and<br />

what would you get up to?<br />

I wouldn’t! Everything<br />

that I’ve been through<br />

is who I am now.<br />

Congratulations<br />

on seven years<br />

of SPUNK.<br />

Thanks! We’re<br />

thrilled to<br />

be going<br />

strong with a<br />

great team of<br />

dancers, hosts,<br />

performers<br />

and crew.

What is Luis Gomez Presents<br />

SPUNK?<br />

SPUNK is a weekly series<br />

of parties that feature our<br />

signature combination of<br />

naughty fun, drag divas,<br />

gorgeous men and thumping<br />

DJs. We have three distinctly<br />

different shows featuring the<br />

most male go-go dancers<br />

under one roof in NYC.<br />

What makes SPUNK different<br />

from other similar parties<br />

around the city?<br />

A few things contribute to<br />

the unique atmosphere of<br />

a SPUNK event. To begin,<br />

SPUNK takes place in the<br />

historic West Village where,<br />

as host Holly Dae often<br />

says, “Your freak flag can fly<br />

high!” In addition, we have<br />

tried to create a place where<br />

everybody feels welcome to<br />

join in on a little stripper fun<br />

without feeling intimidated.<br />

We feature over 35 dancers, from<br />

muscle boys to twinks, plus Blaine<br />

Petrovia, the current North American<br />

pole dance champion, who wows the<br />

crowd with jaw-dropping performances.<br />

What’s new since the last time we<br />

interviewed you guys?<br />

More of everything! More dancers,<br />

more customers, more drag queens,<br />

more DJs… more FUN!<br />

Who hosts your events?<br />

Drag queens, of course! We are thrilled<br />

to have a fantastic lineup of drag diva<br />

hosts. Holly Dae is the original SPUNK<br />

girl and has been with us since the<br />

beginning. She currently hosts Saturday<br />

and Sunday. Thursday nights we rotate<br />

the amazing talents of Brenda Dharling,<br />

Bootsie LeFaris, Inita D, Olivia Luxe,<br />

Skyla Versai and Jasmin Van Wales. Plus<br />

a few surprise hosts from time to time.

Who are your nightly<br />

DJs?<br />

Jonny Mack, David<br />

Michael, Xavier Mazara,<br />

DJ Nandi and our most<br />

recent addition to the<br />

SPUNK family, Nicky<br />

Boom Box.<br />

Tell us about your<br />

different nights.<br />

Thursday at The Monster<br />

Thursday is the original<br />

SPUNK and the largest<br />

of our weekly parties.<br />

It’s wall-to-wall men with<br />

three dancer stages,<br />

two stripper poles and<br />

the most diverse crowd<br />

around.<br />

What do you have<br />

planned to celebrate<br />

your anniversary and<br />

for the future?<br />

As per tradition, we’ll<br />

have our signature<br />

SPUNK t-shirt giveaways<br />

all week, special guests<br />

and a few surprises in<br />

store! As for the future,<br />

who knows… Maybe<br />

there’s a SPUNK Friday<br />

ahead?<br />

Sunday at Pieces Bar<br />

Sunday nights are a bit<br />

more intimate. Sit back<br />

and enjoy the show from<br />

your table or brave the<br />

narrow gauntlet of men<br />

at the bar.<br />

Saturday at The<br />

Monster<br />

This party picks up<br />

where we left off after<br />

our three seasons on Fire<br />

Island. It’s a go-go dance<br />

party with an emphasis<br />

on getting your weekend<br />

groove on with a room<br />

full of hunky men.<br />

Let’s talk about your<br />

dancers. How do you<br />

find so many hot guys?<br />

Thankfully, at this point<br />

in the game, the guys<br />

tend to find us. Word of<br />

mouth and our history of<br />

welcoming guys from all<br />

over the world provide<br />

us with a steady stream<br />

of new dancers every<br />
