THE SECRET SEX LIFE OF BOB DYLAN

Why would Dylan put a photo of Times Square on the cover of his autobiography rather than
the arch in Washington Square Park or a picture of MacDougal Street?

BOB DYLAN’S FIRST 2 MONTHS IN NEW YORK CITY WHEN


HE WAS MALE PROSTITUTE WORKING ROUGH TRADE IN
TIMES SQUARE AND WAS ALMOST MURDERED
Greenwich Village wasn’t the first place young Bobby Zimmerman crashed when
he first came to New York Town. “After a rockin’ reelin’ rollin’ ride I landed up on
the downtown side, Green-wich Village.” Talkin’ New York Bob Dylan 1961.
Where was he prior to writing that? Sellin’ his ass in sleazy bars around Forty
Deuce. He admitted it to Robert Shelton, the critic who gave him his first big break and the
same dude he confessed to that he was junkie.

I shucked everybody when I came to New York. I played cute. I did not go down
to the Village when I first got to New York. I have a friend…. he’s a junkie now.

We came to New York together. He wrote plays. We hung out of on 43 rd Street,


hustled for two months and did everything. I got the ride here in December
1960. I came down to the Village in February. But I was here in New York in
December 1960. Hustling with this cat. I not scared of people, you dig? You name
it we did it. Sometimes we would make one hundred a night, really, from four in
the afternoon until three or four in the morning. We would make one hundred
and fifty or two hundred and fifty a night between us and hang around in bars.
Cats would pick us up and chicks would pick us up. And we would do anything
you wanted, as long as it paid. It was very cut-throat. You gotta shell out a lotta
money just to hang around, so we weren’t making anything. We ended up in the
village. And I had the guitar. I didn’t have any place to stay but it was easy for
me. People took me in. That’s where I almost got killed before I came down to
the Village. I didn’t plan to stay in New York. I left anyway in the spring and
didn’t plan to come back. I came back because I really missed it. There was no
other place that I really could go. The first places I played in were on 44th and
43rd Streets between Broadway and Eighth Avenue in any of those bars. I didn’t
come down to the Village until two months later. Nobody knew I had been
hustling uptown.

This is the “Charlie” Dylan was referring to in the liner Notes to Another Side of Bob Dylan.

This also explains the line in Dignity, “somebody got murdered on New Year’s Eve.” Dylan was
almost murdered and went to the police to help him find the assailant. These are the verses
from Dignity:

You can say that Dylan made this up as he did having traveled with carnivals,
ridden freights and generally woody-guthried it up. This enhanced his career.
Making up a story that he was a slimey Times Square object of chicken hawks did
not, unless everyone had the mentality of a pervert and at the time the CPUSA
considered homosexuality a product of capitialist decadence. And leftists
comprised most of his fan base. Victor Maymudes, one of Dylan’s oldest friends in
New York City told Britta Lee Shain that Bob sold his body for $20 a pop when he

first came to New York and she revealed it in her new book Seein’ The Real You At
Last. This explains this excerpt from the liner notes to Another Side of Bob Dylan.
Charlie’s either Dylan or his redacted friend he was hookin’ with.

michelangelo would've wept


if he saw but once where charlie slept
(whoa, charlie, i'm afraid you've stepped
beyond the borders of being kept)
what price what price what price disgrace
for sleepin' on a cherub's face?

Even "Michelangelo" who was rumored to be gay "would've wept" felt sorry,
remorse "if he saw but once where charlie slept" if he saw where Charlie had
sexual relations "(whoa, charlie, i'm afraid you've stepped beyond the borders of
being kept)" you are not just kept by one man or woman but are out there in
Forty Deuce hustling you ass "what price" at what moral cost "what price" an
amount of money for which a person will forsake principles or obligations "what
price" that which must be given, done, or undergone in order to obtain a thing
“what price” $20 "disgrace" or loss of DIGNITY to be a male prostitute "for
sleepin'" “sleep with” to have sexual relations with "on a cherub's" cherub: a
person, especially a child, with an innocent or chubby face "face?" mouth? Dylan
and his buddy were sucking cock. Is this the “Charlie” Dylan was referring to in the
Liner Notes to Another Side of Bob Dylan?

THE SECRET SEX LIFE OF BOB DYLAN

This line from Tarantula might refer to that ultra-degenerate episode in Bob
Dylan’s so called life “we are all alike & place scorpions neatly in our insides - we
take pills thru the ass we praise faggot missionaries & throw homosexuals into
phenomenon gutters.”

Dylan confessed to having been a male prostitute however Dylan was down on
gays in a different fashion in Soon After Midnight:

Charlotte's a harlot
Dresses in scarlet
Mary dresses in green
It's soon after midnight
And I've got a date with the fairy queen

Charlotte's a harlot the Democrats, who held their 2012 convention in Charlotte,
North Carolina, are political whores who will go against conventional morality in
order to get votes Dresses in the Democrats have an outer covering or
appearance; guise: an ancient ritual in modern dress scarlet being flagrantly
immoral or unchaste: scarlet thoughts. Mary a male homosexual who takes the
passive, feminine role dresses in green is easily duped or deceived; gullible It's

THE SECRET SEX LIFE OF BOB DYLAN

soon after midnight things are at their worst, their darkest And I've got a date and
there is a particular point or period of time at which something is expected to
happen as in set a date for a wedding with the fairy queen that is a date for a
same sex wedding “Fairy” and “Queen” are two derogatory terms for
homosexuals. In Watch the River Flow Dylan wrote, “If I had wings and I could fly”
if I was a fairy, a fag “I know where I would go” to Hell.

After this revelation I had to change my translation of Dignity.

Fat man lookin’ in a blade of steel


Thin man lookin’ at his last meal
Hollow man lookin’ in a cotton field
For dignity

Rich man looking for a dashing youth with a quality suggestive of steel, especially
a hard, unflinching character. A poor man selling his ass for his last meal. A man
without substance or character: a hollow person looking for a black homosexual.
For Dignity (sarcastic)

Wise man lookin’ in a blade of grass


Young man lookin’ in the shadows that pass
Poor man lookin’ through painted glass
For dignity

Leaves of Grass poems by gay poet Walt Whitman


To be accepted as a member of a group by denying one's own ancestry or
background pass for being straight
Poor man looking through the windows of cheap Times Square Bars for gays

Dylan almost got murdered by one of his tricks. “land of the midnight sun” The
City That Never Sleeps is a well-known nickname for New York City, famously
employed in the "Theme from New York, New York", covered by Frank Sinatra. It
may also refer to: The City That Never Sleeps (film), a 1924 drama. City That

killed him.

the receipts from Dylan’s tricks. circumstances Financial status or means

Death is standing in the doorway of life
In the next room a man is fighting with his wife

Bobby Zimmerman in a cheap Times Square hotel.

Yeah Dylan was down on gays when he first came to New York letting them go down on him or
fuck him the ass for cash. Victor Maymudes told Britta Lee Shain that Bob sold his body for $20
a pop when he first came to New York and she revealed it in her new book Seein’ The Real You
At Last. This explains this excerpt from the liner notes to Another Side of Bob Dylan.

In 1962 Dylan claimed he didn’t dig trannies:

Well, I took me a woman late last night


I's three-fourths drunk she looked all right
'Til she started peelin' off her onion gook
She took off her wig, said, "How do I look" ?
I's high flyin', bare naked ...Out the window.

Add it all up, 1961 suicidal, threatens to jump off Brooklyn Bridge, ends up in Bellevue, so he’s a
former mental patient, next he sells his ass to sleazy gays so he’s a whore and maggot, next he
gets addicted to heroin, so he’s a junkie. Next he becomes a sex addict, then get’s HIV Positive
and this turns into AIDS and he almost dies. He’s a racist all along and even descends into
Holocaust denial. That’s my boy, Bobby Dylan!
