You should probably look at instead - I've been there for awhile.

So, who lost their virginity to The Doors?

The LA Times reports that Doors drummer John Densmore is holding out on allowing the music of the band to be used in commercials. Apparently they have had multi-million dollar offers on the table from Apple and Cadillac and Densmore keeps serving up a veto. He says:
"People lost their virginity to this music, got high for the first time to this music," Densmore said. "I've had people say kids died in Vietnam listening to this music, other people say they know someone who didn't commit suicide because of this music…. On stage, when we played these songs, they felt mysterious and magic. That's not for rent."

Okay, whatever, I stopped believing the authenticity schtick awhile ago. But, I have to admit that it is a nice sentiment. Who wants to hear the song they lost it to in a Cadillac commercial? (Although, I guess there are worst products you could have that mental association with.)

Personally, there wasn't any music playing when I lost my virginity. That is probably a good thing, knowing me I would hate the band by now or have fetishized the song. One or the other. However, the first time I received head there was a Woody Allen film playing in the background. I had to stop the action after a minute to turn it off, I was afraid that my psyche would be permanently imprinted with neurosis. Turns out it was too late.

What was playing when you lost your virginity?

I can't remember- I wasn't focusing on the music- but it was probably some cheesy Goth music.
Woody Allen and cunnilingus... *shudder* The scars, how do you stand the mental scars?

Actually, I sort of think that Woody Allen is sexy. . . No, I *really* think he is. If I wasn't lazy I would dig around here for my post on it.

I received my first cunnilingus from the drummer to the Misfits back in 1997... his name was Dr. Chud!

Hehehe... true... I kid you not.

I got my first head listening to the Soup Dragons. Virginity, it was some kids having a fight next door. I was hoping it'd be something cooler. Alas.

Glad to see not everyone is selling out. And I love those stockings, Sweetie. Keep on keepin' on.

Chibithulhu has yet to lose his virginity on this planet. He understands that some of his devoted acolytes have lost theirs to the Smiths.

Tool, both of us are big fans. Then Stinkfist (a song about desensitization, via the metaphor of anal fisting) came on and we got a laugh out of that.
