    Of course the whole sex scene has changed and one whoops can mean a sad life with death.
    We were way dumb and were not to worried about STD's.

    I wouldn't touch most of them with a ten foot cattle prod... I'd be too afraid the syphilis or something would creep up the pole.

    Spectacular to look at though. :D

    I'm 48. Any gig where I get flirted at is a great gig!

    P.S. I'm married, so all I ever do is flirt back. I ain't gonna ruin my life over one night of fun. Those of you who are single (or married and adventurous)... knock yourselves out. :)

    While young and/or single - yay.
    Older/married - nay, but nice to look at.

    I still have fond memories of the young woman who was a caterer, and used to follow a reggae band I was in and would set up a great food buffet for the band in the parking lot after every show.
    Nice way to say "I love the music, thank you".
    Made load-out a whole lot nicer. :D

    I still get attention from men (and sometimes women), at 45. Its nice, and some mild flirting is, well, polite. But that's where it stops. I never do anything that if my husband did it, I'd be mad at him for it.

    I bet if you took a poll, groupies is probably near the top as to why we started playing in the first place. I love music, I love playing, but I love the women. Going all the way back to when I was 15, being in a band ment meeting and hooking up with a lot of women!! (well girls when I was 15, but you know what I mean).

    At this point in my career, I'd trade 3 good groupies for 1 good roadie.:D (Then I'd go hit on txbasschik...:bassist:)

    Got into music for the music, discovered girls :eek:, had fun, wasted alot of time, made some stupid choices :( , survived it, would do things a whole lot different if I had another crack at it. I do not discourage them, I do not encourage them. I sincerely thank them for their appreciation of my music and politely move on. :cool:

    i'm 18 and single and groupies are already wearing out their welcome. i only had a year of heavy debauchery and i can't even understand how anyone survived the 80s lol. groupies can be fun from time to time but, often i find it better not going home with anyone now.

    My wife of 19 years is the only and best groupie I want or need. It's amusing to watch the mating rituals of others, though :)

    YAY, even though I'm in a very happy relationship. Bands that attract girls usually have more success attracting larger audiences (due to guys wanting to hit on said girls) than bands whose performance look like a sausage convention.

    Its that old "too much of a good thing". The whole groupie/debauch thing can get old after a while. Hey, you had it, enjoyed it, and now, you can say BTDT and be choosy now.

    Survived the 80's...and got away cheap, too! LOL!

    Aren't groupies just fans that stalk you?
