NY Gays Are Way Hard (Up): Answers!

We’re putting our money where our mouths are on this one. This morning we posted a Stylelist-provided image of a sex line advert and wondered what the hell “soft talk” could mean. And, more importantly, why anyone would want to call this “adults only” chat line.

Well, a reader by the name of Captain Ahab pulled himself ashore to leave this note:

Well…when are you going to call and post what you heard? Out‘s [Stylelist] didn’t have the balls to call either. Pussies.

Now, we may be a lot of things, but we’re certainly not pussies. So, we put our fingers to work in hopes that the voice on the other line would, well, put our fingers to work. And you know what? It didn’t work.

When they say “soft talk”, they mean it. And when they say “adults only”, they mean, “anyone of any age with 33 seconds of their life they’re willing to sacrifice for pure garbage”. That, of course, isn’t as enticing as “adults only”.

The message itself isn’t so much “boys talking” as “one boy singing…poorly”:

Love is feeling. Feeling Love. Love is golden. Golden Love. Peg Leg wants you to do your love. Do you [love?] 07? 07 love.

At least now we know “peg leg” doesn’t mean amputation fantasy. It’s a person. Wait a second…Captain Ahab, is that you?
