What up I got a big cock

Context: we’re playing a homebrew game. I’m a half mimic training to be a cleric and I never talk, and have a very go with the flow wondering personality so I leave the group often. So the party and I are resting in a town, gathering information getting supplies and finding quests. I ask the DM What’s around the town so I can explore.

DM: well there’s a building next to the tavern. And-
Me: alright. I go there.
DM: I didn’t finish. But okay. You reach the door what now?
Me:…. I want to treat it like a club. Are there any chickens, or roosters around?
DM: no? Why?
Me: I want her to go in and tell ‘what up I got a big cock!’
DM: well. No animals. But the door is unlocked.
Me: I kick down the door, and mutter words, making up a spell. *rolls nat 20*
DM: your spell has successfully turned this wooden door into a giant rubber dildo.
Raynea (me): what up I got a big cock!
DM: Three men run out in front of the door and you realize you’re in a gay brothel.
Raynea: oh. Well. Um. Here. *hands the dildo to one of the gay guys*
DM: his eyes widen then runs into a room and shuts the door. You hear moaning shortly after.

Male Brothel AU || Open to All!

Kurt sighed shifting in the room he was currently waiting in, waiting for the man who is renting him out for the night. For as long as Kurt could remember this was all he was good for and now here was his chance to please another man by being the perfect bottom he could. When the door opened Kurt was laying on the bed casually already in nothing but a pair of skin tight leather pants with a collar around his neck smiling softly. He wasn’t going to say or do anything until he was given an order to so for now he stayed up on the bed keeping his gaze adverted being a perfect sub, but then again that is why people liked him because he was such a perfect sub.  

The Case of the White Swan

So, I was researching stuff about Oscar Wilde, because I love gay history and I figured I can catch references that will be made to the 1895 trial in the special. I veered off track a bit, and I started reading about The Vere Street Scandal of 1810. The first two paragraphs of the wiki article entitled ‘The Vere Coterie’ say this:

The Vere Street Coterie were a group of men arrested at a molly house in Vere Street, London in 1810 for sodomy and attempted sodomy. Eight men were eventually convicted. Two of them were hanged (as per the then still extant sodomy laws promulgated by Henry VIII in 1534) and six were pilloried for this offence. Along with Oscar Wilde’s imprisonment for a similar offence, this episode was one of the major events in gay history in England during the 19th century.

The White Swan on Vere Street in London was established as a molly-house (that is, a gay club) in early 1810 by two men, James Cook (not the seafarer) and Yardley (full name unknown), who realised the lack of gay brothels in the city offered a business opportunity for them (Yardley claimed to be straight with a wife and purely in it for the money).

Yeah, I’m saying I believe TPLoSH makes direct reference to this.

Case closed.

[Side note: Holmes was almost killed in Vere Street before he and Watson fled to the continent in The Final Problem.]

I’ll present more gay history research in later posts.
