Best sex event
Unless you're straight (not that there's anything wrong with that), no other event serves up as many opportunities for sex. Whether you're local or from out of town, it's a time to celebrate sex by not being celibate.
Best place to watch shirtless guys high on E get sweaty with each other
8 Gloucester, 416-410-5426
While the body heat on the boy-busy dance floor is reason enough, the desire to take off your T and share some sweat is most likely courtesy of the circuit crowd's favourite vowel. For the rest of us, it's a glistening feast for the eyes.
Best coffee joint to get cruised at
500 Church, 416-925-8550
From sunrise to beyond sundown, you're not likely to walk down this caffeine catwalk without being noticed by the sip-and-stare crowd of gay gents as addicted to guy candy as they are to their cup of joe.
Best place to buy organic lube
GOOD FOR HER
175 Harbord Street, 416-588-0900
Plenty of sex stores now carry one or two natural lubes, but if you're serious about the purity of your nether regions, go to Good for Her. They've even got homeopathic lubes that are extra good for your crotch.
Best place to buy a solar-powered vibrator
COME AS YOU ARE
701 Queen West, 416-504-7934
Not only does Come carry the city's only solar-powered vibrator (no, you don't have to get it on in the sun to get off), it also has a cute rechargeable vibe that'll give you a half-hour of good lovin' without landfill-bound AAs.
Best queer event that's not Pride
WE'RE FUNNY THAT WAY FESTIVAL
Every year the eagle-eyed Maggie Cassella rounds up North America's smartest and funniest queer comics (and a few token straights) to bring them to Toronto. That is, if they don't already live here, like Elvira Kurt, Diane Flacks and Gavin Crawford. The splashy opening gala makes for terrific schmoozing and it benefits the WFTW Foundation, which ensures that the rest of the fest is pay-what-you-can. So you definitely get the last laugh.
Best club for an impromptu orgy
126 John, 416-979-0044
The best club setting for an impromptu orgy (and Toronto's largest club) is ripe for fantasy when it comes to getting it on - in an en masse kind of way. Whether it's the bathroom-themed bar, the not-so-private glass-walled VIP room or the comfy and plentiful seating area, this space has the potential for some grand group groping.
