Desire and the Jacked Masseur

Posted by on Thu, May 10, 2012 at 1:10 PM

"I shit you not —I know a guy who was working as a masseur at a New Orleans hotel and had to end a massage early after Travolta made a pass at him," reports my friend Jason. "This is apparently not the most battlefield earthshattering news, but there it is."

Oh, come on, David.

Yes, yes, there have been gay rumors about Travolta for years (decades?). And it's fun to pick on his scientology. But this is nothing more than third-hand gossip.

There is very little that is beneath the Stranger's dignity (and I wouldn't want it any other way). But even third-hand gossip should be beneath the Stranger.

He never got over that role in "Urban Cowboy".…

To me, the issue isn't whether or not Travolta is gay, but whether or not he tried to coerce another person into having sex with him. It wouldn't be any less offensive if the masseuse had been female.

And it also bugs me that people immediately assume he's gay because he allegedly solicited a male for sex - why not assume that he's bi?

@3 - Well, all the accusations so far have been from male masseurs. Perhaps some from females are forthcoming.

Whatever he is, if he would just come out with it and live an honest life, he wouldn't need to be a creeper who coerces and harasses people in the service industry into having sex with him to get his jollies.

One guy is a rumor. Two guys, smoke. Three guys, fire! Four guys, fucking orgy. It would be great if he just had the courage to come out but I'm not holding my breath. I can tell by looking at him he's too desperately clinging to the past.

Sounds like John Travolta and Mel Gibson should get together and make a movie.

He's been doing this for decades. Hit on a friend's husband in the steam room about a decade ago.
