You Ask, We Answer: Sex in Bars, Sex with Coworkers and Sexy Tats

Posted: July 23, 2011 by divebardiva in Q&A: Ask Your Bartender

Okay people, here’s what is going on today: It’s that time of the week again for Ask Your Bartender! This week’s questions are a little racy so if you are faint of heart or easily offended … What the hell am I saying? If you were either of those things, you sure as shit wouldn’t have signed up for this blog now, would ya? I think not, my friend. I think not.

So away we go.

Q: Have you ever had sex in any of the bars you have worked in?

A: Wow — we’re getting a little personal! Someone’s feeling a bit kinky today. Okay, here’s the answer: When I was 21, I had already been bartending for almost four years and married for one. Yes, I grew up quickly.

As things often do in life, major changes were on the horizon. And at the ripe old age of 22, I was divorced. Although my taste in men once ran to any dude in a band, it was eventually replaced by bartenders. I love bartenders for a myriad of reasons. They are (usually) sexy, funny, smart — and most importantly –serving me some fine adult beverages. So people, the point of this story is a big YES.

I have had sex in the bars I have worked in — and in some that I haven’t. I also once got busy in a Burger King bathroom. Kidding! hee hee

Q: Have you ever dated a customer or a coworker?

A: Well, where hot people, alcohol and low inhibitions come into play, there’s bound to be some “co-mingling.” I do not recommend dating where you work. However, sometimes things just happen. My Pops used to have a great saying (as all bartenders do), “Kid, don’t shit where you eat.” It’s some of the best advice I have ever received. If you date or just sleep with a coworker, things have a tendency to get complicated.

God forbid you break up, and it ain’t pretty. You might find yourself working every Saturday with your ex across the bar with a new hooker on his lap every week. The same can be said for customers, sometimes people are not who you thought they were. And now they have your work schedule and all the time in the world to torture you while you’re trying to make a living.

Sometimes it works out just fine but, more often than not, things get ugly. You may have to leave your job if things get too bad, or you may lose one of your best customers because they don’t want to see you after things go awry.

But who knows? Maybe ya meet the love of your life, and everything is hunky dory. Things like this don’t happen to just everybody — and I’m really not that lucky — so I like to stick to the basics.

Q: Tattoos and dive bars go together like PB&J. Have you seen any particularly strange or memorable ones?

A: I love tats. My golden dragon will be EPIC when finished. Some of the ones I’ve seen and loved:

  • Guns on the hips
  • A shawl of flowers across the entire back on one of my BFFs
  • Beautiful Ganesha (Hindu elephant gods) on one of my ATL girls
  • A Portrait of Elvis — still one of my faves
  • A Big Wheel tat on my girl, the Fascist (now that shit is cool!)
  • The intricate koi on my bitch Vodka Toxic

And a couple that haven’t impressed me:

  • The word FILTH — not sure why you’d want that on your body
  • A Raggedy Ann doll on a male bartender in Fort Lauderdale with the words “suck me” underneath

Check out for some more dandies. My favorites are the misspelled ones like, “By your side whatever your going thru.”

Love ya, Bitches!
