Happy Halloween: Cheap Costume Idea

My favorite holiday of the year is Halloween. It’s the day when we don’t have to wear our masks anymore. I think that this is the reason why it has long been a favorite holiday for gay men. Happy Halloween…I hope you get a TRICK and a TREAT.

If I were dressing up for Halloween (I’m teaching tonight, so no partying), my cheap costume might have been “Safe Sex Worker.”

I’d raid my home improvement tool box for tool belt, knee pads and hard hat. I’d raid my bedside table toy box for dildo, condoms and lube. Mark the dildo with 1″ increments and put in hammer strap of tool belt. Other pockets hold condoms and lube.

Then print up business cards:

Safe Sex Worker
Hand Jobs – Blow Jobs
Pay by the inch or by the job

I’d dress in a blue collar shirt, jock, jeans, knee pads, tool belt and boots.

I’d pass out the cards. Use my measuring dildo for estimates. Where I would go from there is up to how the night progressed. Keep it safe.

What are you going to be for Halloween? (By the way, I actually went as the devil this year.)


SPECIAL NOTE TO ALL THOSE WHO HAVE LEFT COMMENTS/SENT EMAILS IN THE LAST WEEK OR SO:  I have to apologize for not answering comments and/or emails in a while.  I have been incredibly busy for the past week or so and basically just doing my best to post something each day.  My free time has been spent trying to get a little rest.  Hopefully, things will start to settle down a bit and I can answer all the comments that have been left.  Please keep the comments coming, I read each and every one of them, and eventually, I will respond to all of them.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
