All eyes were on me as I took the stage. My heart pounded in my ears.
It was that beautiful feeling of adrenaline I get every time I perform at a karaoke night; only something was starkly different here. Behind the clapping, cheering crowd, I could see a half-naked couple furiously making out in the corner. To my right and left, I heard throes of passion: screams, yips, and moans emerging from adjoining rooms.
I am a karaoke enthusiast. It's nothing for me to be at a karaoke night at least weekly, and in my hometown of LA there is no shortage of great spots to choose from. I'm equally comfortable belting out a tune in the privacy of the shower, the safety of my car... or in front of a red-curtained backdrop at a sex party Downtown.
Because when your karaoke DJ friend invites you and your boyfriend to check out his set at an adults-only club, you say yes.
