Snippets of The Prodigal Band Trilogy Controversial Topics Series: Episode Three-Sexual Orientation

There are a couple of reasons ‘sexual orientation’ is controversial, especially these days when some folks are changing their genders for whatever reason or changing their children’s genders for whatever reason. I could have just posted about sexuality or desire for sex, or not (believe it or not but some folks have no sexual desire at all!), but that isn’t really controversial anymore. Sexual orientation implies either heterosexual or what is now called LGBTQ—lesbian/gay/bisexual/transsexual…and does ‘Q’ stand for ‘queer’?

If the reader has read the various ‘Snippets of the Prodigal Band Trilogy’ posts here then the reader knows that guitarist-producer Mick is bisexual. He revealed why in Chapter Eleven of The Prodigal Band: his own mother sexually abused him while a teen because his own father was gay and thus would not have sex with his wife! But Mick had already given up the bisexual lifestyle by the time he revealed this.

So then, why is this topic controversial in the trilogy books? Because if one looks closely at what is secretly admitted within the three novels by the other band characters, one might come up with the notion that Mick wasn’t the only band member to have ‘relationships’ with those of the same sex. In the snippets posted in this post, clues abound without getting heavily into this possibility.

Here is why this possibility that other band members might have bisexual leanings makes sense: it is a well-known fact that many rock stars were openly gay or bisexual, or secretly so. I am not going to mention any names here—do the research yourself. But many of these rockers did admit they had sexual relationships with same sex rockers and others, including fellow band members. For one thing, check out Rolling Stone Magazine for this. The same applies to rappers, hip-hoppers, etc. I’ve known about this for many years, thanks to Rolling Stone and other publications. There are many reasons for this, but one that stood out (including admissions in YouTube videos) was the fact that rocker handlers—managers, agents, producers, A&R men for various record labels and others—veered the rockers into accepting this lifestyle for the sake of fame and fortune. Again, do the research yourself. This is why, in an early chapter of Battle of the Band, Mick admits to having sex with record company officials, and would later have a relationship with another rocker named Adam Bloodlove.

The following snippets are short but to the point. All are from Battle of the Band.

The first snippet from Chapter One has the evil Novordos including Mr. X explaining why they chose the prodigal band Sound Unltd to carry out their agenda to corrupt the young. In the video they are watching, it is made to seem as if various band members are performing bi-sexual behaviors on stage at a night club.

Mr. X placed a cassette on the table. “The best I can do right now is to show you this video of a live performance at XanadU.” X put the tape into the VCR. “Not another band in the world does the routines these boys dare to do, though many come close.”

Music of raw, slow, hot passion set even middle-aged hormones ablaze.

The record company man watched and listened in titillated awe.

The first scene showed Erik singing with his hands down his skin-tight leather trousers.

Rub me, suck me, tease me, (bleep)

Then, with his exposed hands about his genitals, he humped a mic stand while moaning in climax.

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ooooh, baby, (bleep) me dry


In the next scene Mick and Jack, on either side of Erik, jabbed their guitar necks into the singer’s awaiting rear. Scene four showed Jack and Mick flicking their tongues together as their bodies rubbed. Finally, Erik and Bryan butted each other’s rear-ends together atop the synthesizer which quickly exploded into red flames.

The next snippet from Chapter Two has fellow rockers discussing a conversation Rob had with guitarist-band leader Jack at a pub a time ago while the rockers partied in a hotel room on tour.

“He said he called to the angels, and it blew his mind that they actually answered. They told him they would see to it that Sound Unltd made it.” A scruffy-looking Rob saw four incredulous faces. “Hey, don’t look at me like that! That’s what Jack told me at some pub a while back.”

“Was he drunk, man?”

“No, but I think I was, eh?”

“You would be,” Mocke said aside to his closest lover.

In Chapter Three, guitarist-producer Mick tells his Druid-like cult followers that he didn’t care if the rest of the band wasn’t into gay sex, because others involved with the band were available. At the time, all the cult followers around were having sex with each other. I won’t go into the details but you’ll get the idea.

“I started doing this last year when we all went Stateside with Wolfin. I met a groupie in some tit bar in Iowa who told me she always had her wrists slit before she made love. I asked her if she’d ever had her twat slit, and she said, ‘No. Where’d you get that idea?’ I told her I read that in a book. She said, ‘I’ve always wanted to do that stuff, but around here, no one’s really into that.’ So we did it. She told her friends about it, and after the gig the following night, her friends got Erik and Jack into it. It was funny with Erik, because he kept asking his girl if she was having any pain.”

Magda said, “That’s because Erik’s such a gallant. And he’s sooo good in bed.”

“How would you know?” Mick answered. “You’ve never had Erik.”

“But I intend to. Have you, dear Mick?”

“No. Erik’s not into that. I respect him for that.”

“Poor, poor Mick.” Allyson Hallsey-Foxworth had her eyes and desired to have her womanhood on the lanky one as she rubbed his thigh. “There’s no one else in your band who’ll open their buttholes for you.”

“Shit, girl. I don’t need one o’ them. I can have any groupie I want. Our producer Mike D’Arcy, Colin Hedgely, our agent and promoters all do nicely when we’re on the road. Half our roadies, too. So, babe, don’t feel sorry for me. I get enough.”

This snippet from Chapter Four explains the evil New Age cult leader Swami Negran desired to have singer Erik as well as his girl Ger for sex reasons. They were gathering to celebrate the end of the ‘infamous ban’ of the prodigal band at Erik’s Long Island estate to which the singer and his girl has exiled to.

“You have so royally entertained my taste buds tonight.” Swami Negran’s obsidian eyes glowed in delight of the delicate curry meal hosted by the residents of a fabulous estate on the north shore of Long Island. “And so, Erik and Ger, I will now entertain your spirits.”

The leader of the Circle of Unity cult from India wore a warm, charismatic smile heightened by his sense of Ger’s fresh beauty and his secret desire for her.

“Oh!” the lovely responded with feigned apprehension. “So you’re going to initiate us into your religion, eh?”

“Why not, Ger?” Erik, who all along noted Negran’s looks of desire for him as well as her, allayed any fears and at the same time touted his growing fortune at heeding Negran’s advice.

It gets a little more complicated in the next two snippets—in this one, from Chapter Five, where guitarist-band leader Jack is discussing a gala of sorts at his fancy estate that evening featuring nihilist sculptor Makko, Jack ends the conversation with ‘Ciao, babe.’ Babe? Are these two gay lovers, maybe?

“That is too bloody cool! I got a genius for a business partner!”

A smiling Jack Lubin smiled even broader when avant-garde sculptor Makko told him over the cellular phone, “And you’ll love my latest, an alabaster statue of Christ about to be sodomized by a screw.”

“Absolutely!” Jack yelled into his sporty car phone. “I want twenty percent commission on that one. If I don’t buy it myself, that is.” Which I won’t. I got nothing against Christ, even if I do hate religion!

“Well, listen, Jack,” the suave guitarist heard the pink-and-purple pony-tailed artist communicate, “I absolutely love you for setting me up an exhibit at Farlough. So many London galleries won’t touch my pieces. They think my works are too morally corrupt. Really. I’m only making a statement.”

“Yeh. You saying exactly what we say in our music. They do just like me dad used to do—praise Christ only to screw Him. All you saying is how screwed over this world is, eh?”

“Cool. Listen, I’ll see you tonight for the social-cultural event of the month.”

“Yeh, of the 23rd of August, anyway. Listen, I’m heading to Roxxy’s to buy a new suit for the event. Ciao, babe.”

In this snippet also from Chapter Five, actor and globalist foundation head Banner is getting singer Erik into his ‘cultural’ foundation among other reasons because it supports ‘gay rights.’ Are the two admitting they also have gay sex relationships? Is singer Erik saying he won’t ‘go to bed’ with the actor because he isn’t bisexual while the actor is, or because he is also bisexual while the actor isn’t? Or both? I’ll let the reader decide.

A bit later, world-renowned Shakespearean actor Neville Banner approached the singer who felt little pain. “I am now formally inviting you, Erik, to join the World Community Artists Foundation. In fact, the Board is extending that invitation to all in your band. So far, Jack, Mick, and Tom have assented to join with us. Do you?”

“Absolutely. You people fight for what we believe in. An end to moral hypocrisy, freedom of expression, that sorta thing.” Erik then took the actor aside. “But don’t expect me to go to bed with you, eh? I support gay rights, except in my tight little ass, eh?”

The two laughed.

“I’ll count you in, then. Except in my tight little ass.”

While I do not approve of LBGTQ behavior, that behavior is up to the individual and is between the individual and God, and God gives them a choice. Mick gives up his bi-sexual behavior and so would the other band members if they did indeed engage in it. But the fact is that within the entertainment industries, LBGTQ is a fact of life for many.

Note: the next snippet post will appear in early January. Christmas and family is coming up! Unlike some states, Texas is not undergoing ‘covid lockdown.’ Thank God for that! And the family members all live in Texas, so no travel restrictions.

Born on Long Island, NY, in 1952, now live in the mountains of far west Texas. Began writing fiction stories at about 8 years old with pen and loose leaf paper, and created the characters in my Prodigal Band Trilogy as a teenager. From the 70s to the 90s I created the scenario which I believe was inspired. While bringing up and home schooling my two children I continued to work on the novels and published "Battle of the Band" in 1996 and "The Prophesied Band" in 1998. Took off the next several years to complete home schooling and also working as an office manager for the local POA. In 2016, I retired, then resumed The Prodigal Band, a FREE PDF book that tells the whole story to its glorious end. Hint: I'm a true believer in Christ and I'm on a mission from God, writing to future believers, not preaching to the choir. God gave me a talent and, like the band in my books, I am using that talent for His glory, not mine (and, like me, the band is on its own journey, only fictional.) I also wrote for my college newspaper and headed up production, was a columnist in a local newspaper in the early 2000s, and wrote for and edited "Log of the Trail," the news letter for the Texas Mountain Trail Writers, and wrote for and edited it's yearly catalog of writings, "Chaos West of the Pecos." OmegaBooks is my self-publishing sole proprietorship company founded in 1995. Other jobs included teaching secondary math, health aide, office worker, assembly line work, and free-lance writing and bookkeeping,much of it while home schooling.
