The weather might be turning cool, but things are hotting up in regional NSW with three fun-filled nights organised by ACON Hunter.
My Bedroom Rules is a sex trivia night for gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM), in Newcastle, Taree and Tamworth. It will test your knowledge of all things sexual in three courses of trivia, fun and games.
