The Den, a gay sex shop in Sydney’s Darlinghurst neighborhood, was devastated by an unexplained blaze on Thursday, causing sections of busy Oxford Street to be blocked off and nearly 50 people to be evacuated.
Above, the owner tells news cameras how it went down:
“I was speaking to the employee at that shop and I thought he said, ‘I can smell shit.’ And I go, I said, ‘No shit, it’s a gay back room,’” And he said. “And he goes, ‘No, I smell smoke.” I said, ‘You’d better go check that out.’ And then, before I knew it, the whole fucking thing’s on fire, they’ve blocked the roads.”
After mentioning how he parked illegally and will now get “another fucking parking ticket,” the tattooed proprietor lovingly describes his fortress of fornication:
“It sells dildos, butt plugs, fucking anal beads, but the main business is it’s a gay sauna,” he said. “They pay ten dollars and they get those big screens with pornos and they get to fuck each other. There’s a suckatorium, you put your cock in a hole and some guy sucks you off. This is not a fucking joke, this is how it goes. This is the world of the gays.”
You can really feel the love he has for his work.
