WHAT thick one? They all look like they''re 12. Not that there''s anything wrong with that, of course.
where are the good GoGo bars in NYC?
which bar is this in?
If you like hot Dominicans, R2, go to "No Parking" and "El Morocco." Those guys are amazing and while "straight" they''re pretty touchy feely.
Fascinating... thanks for the link, OP.\
Most of the guys look sort of sad, used and high...\
Not a turn on at all, but interesting from in an anthropological way, I guess.\
Sort of sad that our gay liberation has lead us not so very far...
Zak, some times sex workers make me blue...
r4, half the Dominican boys who dances at these places work out Bally''s in the Bronx. Most, if not all, are straight, but they will do things, though with limits.
Love how the bills are all $1''s. That''s a tough living.
Also curious to hear where these pics were taken. One thing I''ve always liked about Jonny McGovern is him only hiring GAY dancers.
This thick guy R1. \
I think a lot of these are older pics- from the Slide and the old Cock.
I never said they were all cute. Definitely shows that Gogo boys look better in dim lighting.
They all look diseased.
Where is this club?
Hmm, I wouldn''t describe that guy as "thick", but ok. Not a single one of those guys does a thing for me. I guess R14 is right.
Some of these boys are adorable. The judgy queens of DL make me laugh.
A lot of cute boys I agree. They almost make it look fun.
OP- you''re a perv. I don''t care if they''re "legal"- these guys all look 14.\
I get really sick of this shit here. I''m gay- I like MEN. Not guys who look like kids.
Does anyone know where this club is?
r20 only likes men who look like Michael Douglas
Right R20. Because straight guys only like WOMEN, never chicks who look like teenagers. Oh wait, they do! They pretty much all do. Never mind.\
You don''t like this type of guy? Fine. Move on. Never understood why people insist on trying to impose their own subjective erotic tastes on the world.
R20 is delusional. None of these guys look remotely "prepubescent". Especially the one I pointed out as my favorite. Nothing pervy here.
They are all whores, darlin''.
New Yorkers: Are these among the "beautiful" men of New York that you brag about constantly on DL? Because their type is the only ones we ever see posted here.
[quote]Does anyone know where this club is?\
A good proportion of the shots appear to have been taken years ago at the original location of Mr. Black, at Broadway & Bleecker. You can clearly make out its bar and brick arches in the backgrounds. Some are at the old Cock. I''d say none of these pics are less than four years old.
You say "old" and "original location," r27... Are both of these places now closed?
[quote]I think a lot of these are older pics- from the Slide and the old Cock\
There''s a bar in NY called "the old Cock"?!
I''ll bet that room smells like Astroglide and failure.
[quote]You say "old" and "original location," R27... Are both of these places now closed?\
Yes. The original Cock was on Avenue A but relocated to Second Ave. four or five years ago. Mr. Black started at Broadway & Bleecker, was evicted for various drug violations, and has since hopscotched around Manhattan. Last I heard it was no longer a freestanding club, but rather a club night at The Cock. And yes, the night is called Black Cock.
These picks are at least 5 to 8 years old, I think. Jay. the guy in r9''s link was always in HX and Next around that time. This site would be more interesting with a ''where are they now'' comment. Is McGovern still party promoting in NYC?
I''m embarrased that I even know this, but the skinny guy who appears in a bunch of the pics is Jay''s bf. They used to do a dance duet together at Club 20.
The go-go boys at clubs I''ve been to were cute and looked like they were having fun. These guys look so... sad. Are they hostages working off gambling debts or something?
Thats cuz there was no flash going on off, R34. They weren''t really that cute.
"Most of the guys look sort of sad, used and high..."\
Are we looking at the same pics?\
I have no doubt that it''s possible some of them are all those things, but to me it LOOKS like they''re young, hot and having a blast. \
Appearances can often be deceiving... but then again so can your internal Aunt Rosalyn.
They do all look used and high, and I''m from NY and have gone to those bars. When you''re going there, you''re looking for a particular type, the drugged out, tina snorting, twink/hipster, and that''s what those bars provide. Those pictures are a very accurate representation of what the bars look like, how they''re lit, and the clientele that goes there. \
Appearances in this case are not deceiving at all, but utterly correct. One would say if you don''t have this perspective r36, that you most likely represent what is in those pictures, which is fine for you if you are into that sort of thing, but tragic to the rest of the world.
Johnny McGovern is gross.
Maybe they''re Russian sex slaves.
I can see not being into it or not finding the guys attractive, Aunt Roz at r37, which is fine. To each his own... But "tragic." Tragic? Really? \
The earthquake in Haiti was tragic. The plane crash in Libya was tragic. A bunch of twinks partying and dancing on the bar in their underwear for tips, not so tragic imho. \
If you can prove they''re there against their will or are deeply unhappy doing what they''re doing then let''s hear it, but It looks to me like they''re having fun: I know I would be. Don''t be such a prude.
These pictures appear to have been taken toward the end of the evening, right before closing time, by which point, yes, the dancers appear rode hard and put away wet.
Having attended countless Jonny McGovern outings at Mr. Black, The Park, etc. in the era these pics were taken (mid-aughts), I can say with firsthand knowledge that both the dancers and most of the crowd were having a goddamn good time. In my case, it was a drug-free good time - never done tina and never will.
The Cock is now where The Hole was. Jay is all inked now and still dancing/escorting.
These pics must be from 4-5 years ago... I remember the Jay guy OP mentioned... Jay bulked up (steroids or gym) and is now an escort on rentboy.com\
He won the best new rentboy award from the hookies.
Really sad to see Jay go so downhill. His Rentboy ad says "sometimes safe," which clearly suggests he''s poz, and he outright states he''s a drug user. He was such a cute, sparkly twink five or six years ago.
Wow, I did not know any of that R44/45. That is kind of sad. When I used to see him out he always seemed cute and fun. \
But those are some hot pics at the link R44!
r44 that is a surprise. I never knew him, but saw him out and about (he was hard to miss). I had hoped he retired to wherever hot go-go boys of yesteryear go to retire. I hope for him and safe and prosperous career.
The theme of the party was: "A Wassermann Test for Every Guest".
Jonny McGovern isn't promoting in NYC. He is a cast member of Logo's Gay Sketch Show and is in the process of moving out to LA to pursue acting I think.
The Mr. Black parties when the club was on Bleecker and Broadway were a ton of fun. I really enjoyed them. The music was great. The go go boys were ok, but I really didn't go there for that. The crowd it attracted is what I liked. Young, attractive, fun and usually horny college age to early 30s types, which I was then in the mid aughts.
The towels are because you cannot have complete nudity in NYC. McGovern's thing was a "Gay Frat House" and the guys he hired fit that bill. They are not models, just twinks with tight, tight bodies - mostly guys in their early twenties you would love to take home drunk, bend over and fuck the shit out of.
Even though it's over, Jonny had a really cool podcast the last three years that you can still get episodes from - Gay Pimpin' with Jonny McGovern that covered NYC Night Life and goings on. I didn't much care for him or his schtick before I started listening, but after three years of listening, I really miss him and the podcast.
Looks like my kind of place. Thanks OP!\
Many years ago, the go-go boy scene here in Austin was pretty hot, especially at Dicks Deja Disco. \
There hasn''t been a decent go-go dancer in this city in two years or more.\
[quote]OP- you''re a perv. I don''t care if they''re "legal"- these guys all look 14.\
When was the last time you saw a 14 year old? They look about go-go boy age, 19-24\
Now the guy at the link is 14
[quote]When was the last time you saw a 14 year old? They look about go-go boy age, 19-24\
I''ve gotten worse at judging ages as I''ve gotten older. I''m 30 and chatted up a really cute boy last night out at the bars. I friended him on Facebook today, hoping to perhaps take things further, but then I saw his school listing: "_____ _____ High School ''12." He was 16!! I honestly thought he was 21 or 22.
NO you didn''t, R61. You believed what you wanted to, perv.
lol r61. PEDO! But really some of the kids these days look elderly. Like Lindsey Lohans
If I was a "perv," R62, I''d be pursuing him, which I am most certainly not. In fact, I think I should probably unfriend him on Facebook, lest any of my actual friends wonder why I added a 16-year-old!
Why do they call them GOGO?\
Where do they Go to?
r65, this is what I want to know.
Believe it or not, the term dates back to the early ''60s and the creation of go-go boots. Once nightlife impresarios started getting the idea that watching miniskirted girls wearing go-go boots on tabletops would be alluring, it became a popular trend, and once gay bar dancers came along, they co-opted the "go-go" term.

I thought the term was credited to Wham!''s "Wake me up before you GOGO..."
I don''t like skinny go go boys. They should all be muscled and buff. And MASCULINE.
no skinny or femy dudes
oy. I remember when gogo boys were hot. these guys are fucking gross.
not a sexy man among them. yuck.
twinks are not hot. find some masculine dudes who lift weights.
What clubs or bars in NYC have gogo dudes?
R1 is a seriously bad judge of age (off by a decade at least)... must be in his 90s or something to be that bad.
I wish places like this existed any more. I haven't see a place like in the OP's pics in the US in ages. They used to be everywhere (even in San Antonio!)
All you bitches criticizing their looks are full of it. First of all, there is bad flash photography going on here. They don't really all look milk white. Second, they have good bodies, not wasted bodies. Third, I've been going to go-go bars since around 1982 and I'd say that group is one of the better groups I've seen.
r77, you have interesting taste, dude
Those guys look 18-21 ,not 12-14,what`s the matter with all of you?
Y'all realize this thread is from 2010!!?
They're all hideous! Not a single one of them would I even bother to give a second glance. They all look like they're probably on some sort of AIDS medications.
