“I Want Your Sex”

Imagine being cruised by the world’s top male pop star on Gaydar. That’s how Steve Pafford met and became friends with George Michael. Steve recalls the sex, the spliffs and the warm and witty “Yog” he knew.

In the days before hook-up apps, the cruising megasite was Gaydar. I joined 13 years ago, newly single and living in leafy North London. “Internet dating” was a bizarre beast. So many reasons to be wary. How do you know that’s them in the photo? And if it is, how do you know it’s not from a time when ABBA were still in the charts?

Having only had a profile for three months, when I receive a series of messages out of the blue from a person who reckons he’s George Michael, one of the greatest pop stars of the time, I’m naturally disinclined to believe him.

It’s a wet Monday evening in April and as I log onto the ’dar, something more than a million users were doing every day back in 2004, I notice a message from a faceless user with a moniker not too dissimilar to that of a well-known brand of vodka. He tells me almost straight away that we are in the same business. On his profile page he states his profession as a lawyer. Mine says I’m in the music/ publishing business so I joke to myself that I’m chatting to Stevie Wonder and ask him to clarify.

About DNA Magazine

It’s time to take your pants off… because this month's DNA is all about underwear. The issue is jam-packed with the latest trends in underwear styles with an in-depth guide by our fashion guru Joshua Heath. For the more adventurous and confident, fashion model Gabriel Garcia shows off the unique style of men’s lace underwear that's on trend. This issue, we also pay tribute to George Michael – the man, the music, the icon. In this special feature, Marc Andrews reflects on George's career highlights and some of his personal lows. Steve Pafford recalls his up-close-and-personal encounters with George, and we unearth a great anecdote from Aussie music’s Paul Mac – something to do with “fluffing”! Openly gay UFC fighter, Timothy Guest joins us to talk about overcoming ADHD and depression and how he went from go-go boy and jail bird to ultimate fighting champion. On the cover, Abel Cruz from Photo Studio Miami captures the body-licious Jason Whidby in rocket-fuelled shoot that will leave you begging for more! For art lovers, we showcase the work of the world famous Ross Watson ahead of his up-coming Sydney exhibition and take a look at a unique Bollywood adaptation of the classic fairytale Cinderella – with an all-male cast. All that, and so much more in this month’s DNA Magazine.
