Arts + CultureMusicMiddle-Aged Queers' 'What's Your Favorite Kink?' is the new...

Middle-Aged Queers’ ‘What’s Your Favorite Kink?’ is the new Folsom anthem we begged for

Local punk quartet releases affirmingly filthy earworm in hot anticipation of Folsom Street Fair gig

Move over, “Sex on Wheels.” Make some room on the sling, “Freak on a Leash.” Shift your weight a little, “Master & Servant.” Beat it, “S&M.”

There’s finally a new Folsom Street Fair anthem swanning into the playroom, courtesy of adorable local punk quartet Middle-Aged Queers, called “What’s Your Favorite Kink?”—and it’s the perfect addition to any playlist aiming to whip up a little cheeky excitement.

Elevating an affirmatively filthy message over mood-setting objectification, “What’s Your Favorite Kink” manages to squeeze puppy play, furries, the hanky code, “false binary,” and even the proverbial kitchen sink into a two-minute saucy blast. (Yes, there is even a Middle-Aged Queers hanky now available, to wear on whichever side you wish!)

In advance of the their performance at 2pm, Sun/24 at Folsom Street Fair’s live music stage on 12th Street and Kissling (Kiss Sling?), I peppered Middle-Aged Queers—Shaun, Fureigh, Josh, and Niki—with stinging queries:

48 HILLS What inspired this adorably filthy gem of affirmation?  

JOSH: Our love of kink!

48 HILLS How much fun did you have writing the lyrics? 

SHAUN: This song pretty much wrote itself after a delightful discussion at band practice regarding more obscure fetishes like balloons or leg braces. There were a few lines that needed to be included, like “puppy play” or paying homage to the hanky code.

FUREIGH: Brings whole new meaning to “suffering for our art.”

48 HILLS What are your favorite kinks?

FUREIGH: I love book recommendations. Giving, receiving, watching others give… everything about ’em.

NIKI: I’m into Macrophilia with a side of Kitty Play!

SHAUN: I’m into toast fucking. Ya know, where you fuck or get fucked by toast. 

JOSH: I’m a proud member of the mile high club. That’s when you poop on an airplane … I think?

48 HILLS If Middle-Aged Queers the band was wearing a hanky, what color would it be? 

JOSH: Teal and yellow. Right pocket. 

SHAUN:  Josh is our special “golden boy.”

FUREIGH: A balloon! Duh! 🙂

NIKI: A Hunter Green hanky on the Right Side! AND a Red hanky on the Left Side!

SHAUN: I agree with us being a red hanky from the left pocket. Because we’re right up your ass, baby!
