    Companies are out here “celebrating” queerness by charging an arm and a leg for mass-produced merch and lame events. It’s giving gatekeep, it’s giving tacky, it’s giving not-our-style. 

    So, new users, come one, cum all, and activate thirst mode for a limited time during Pride month! 

    We got Thirst Mode down to a science

    We love data. That’s not news to anyone here. We ran a few studies to better understand people’s dating and hook-up habits. Our findings might shock (or inspire) you as much as they did us. 

    The first was a Thirsty Survey. 

    Curious to find out how people responded to some of our burning questions? 

    Thirsty Survey Results

    The results are in, and seeing the diverse range of choices and experiences is fascinating. When it comes to preferred hookup arrangements, a friends-with-benefits setup took the lead at 30.99%, closely followed by casual dating at 28.40%. Meanwhile, 10.09% favored a fling, 7.51% expressed interest in threesomes or group sex, and 7.28% enjoyed one-night stands. Surprisingly, 1.41% were up for public sex! (I definitely expected this number to be higher.)

    The world of summer hookups and Pride Month celebrations is diverse and exciting, with people exploring various preferences and encounters.

    Thirsty opening lines that got us wet 

    We asked for you to send us your thirstiest opening lines, and the gays delivered! Here are our top picks — we dare you to try some (or all) of them out.

    We encourage you to use these lines as an opportunity to express your desires while practicing consent and respect. Communication is key, so be sure to ask for permission and respect each other’s boundaries. 

    Whether you’re exploring your identity, celebrating Pride, or simply looking for some fun, prioritize safety, consent, and a fantastic time.

    This brings us to… 

    Come one, cum all (consensually)

    Consent is key. 

    We’ve explored a wide array of preferences and experiences within the realm of LGBTQIA+ summer hook-ups and Pride Month celebrations. That being said, different gays are down for different sh*t. What might feel vanilla to you might be in someone else’s red zone and vice versa. 

    So, when it comes to lighting your summer flings aflame, it’s essential for boundaries, limits, desires, and expectations to be clear, respected, and in place. 

    Remember, consent is an ongoing and enthusiastic agreement between all parties involved. 

    Get carried away in lust, love, and the realms of pleasure, and let consent be your guide.
