My Dancing With the Stars Wish List!
Of course I think some of the best dancing is men dancing with men. Watch this video of two brothers dancing the tango, which began as a man-to-man dance. I would like to suggest two male couples for Dancing With the Stars but I know that isn't going to happen in my lifetime. This country has come a long way into acceptance of same sex couples but I don't think we're ready yet for same sex couple on the dancing floor. But I'll tell you, the most sensual time of my gay life was when I went into my first gay bar and a man (a real man, not a fey gay guy) asked me to dance. I accepted. When my partner put his right hand to the small of my back and took my left hand in his hand and pulled me in close to him as we danced to "Our Day Will Come" by Ruby and the Romantics....well folks, that was the MOST erotic experience I've ever had in my life. Nothing since has even come close. That was the Moment when I realized that I was not ALONE and I was okay. I was NORMAL. Everything "worked."
But I digress. That experience will be a subject for a future blog posting. This blog is about my realistic wish list for future 'star' contestants on Dancing With the Stars:
This is the criteria I take into consideration for choosing my 'stars."
- Must be interesting personalities
- Must be either past their prime and trying to restart their career
- Must be physically attractive (it takes all types)
- Must be athletic
- Must posses a set of balls (men and woman) because this is HARD WORK!
Steve for comedy
Tall and elegant - the 'model' contestant
Tall and elegant - the music star
Jen's not doing anything else _(where are those movie roles?)
The Asshole Star - need one for balance
Watch out Mark Ballas! You have met your match!
Oh Lynds! You JUST KNOW she will put on a show
The beefy athletic star who surprises all with his graceful moves
Let's just hope he doesn't bit off his partner's ear if he doesn't win
He of the long torso and short legs - would love to see THAT gliding across the dance floor
The 'star' who thinks she's all THAT but isn't - I love to see this kind of 'star' voted off
Go on and admit it - don't you want to see these buns dancing?
The likelihood of any of these stars actually agreeing to go on Dancing With the Stars is little to none, I realize that. The physical aspects of training and performing on DWTS and facing the humiliation of being voted off takes a lot of guts. Not many 'stars', with their fragile egos which need constant stroking can take it. I believe the ones I mentioned above can. Wouldn't it be an interesting show if they did agree to go on? Talk about a ratings buster.
If there is a male to male couple, I would love to see Mark Ballas paired with Johnny Weir. It would be worth the price of admission alone to watch those two midget egos battle for dominance on the dance floor. Well, at least they wouldn't have to wear platform shoes - they're both short.
