EDC Raver's Craigslist Ad Claiming She Got Pregnant by Anonymous Guy Goes Viral
EDC Vegas 2012.
Death and destruction seem to follow Electric Daisy Carnival almost wherever it goes, through no fault of its own: L.A. organizers did a nice job of putting on America's biggest festival stage in Las Vegas last month.
And sometimes adversity makes us stronger and brings us life, sweet life -- right?
Like a spring flower sprouting from the Mojave, an EDC attendee is claiming that someone got her pregnant at the show in June and is responsible for her little bud:

A Craigslist Las Vegas poster who claims to be a 22-year-old party-goer is reaching out to the otherwise anonymous and long-gone father to ask him to step forward.
(Good luck with that.)
The ad was posted June 14 in the "missed connections" section of Craigslist's personal ads. But it has gone viral on Facebook in recent days.
It reads (warning, NSFW language):
The ladies of EDC 2012.

Me: Blue hair, silver tube top, fishnets, Knee high Go-Go boots
You: Sunglasses, Glowsticks, tight blue jean shorts
We were at EDC all weekend and I was grinding on you in the pit, then we went to the bathroom and you showed me about PLUR and Deep Penatration and got fucked up. You had a nice cock and I was wasted so I let raw dog it in the stall.
You were really good and you had to gag me so I would make too much noise.
Anyway I'm pregnant. It's yours. contact me if you want to be part of your child's life.
Funny (blue hair, silver top, gag me?) and, perhaps, a little too clever to be real. Who knows she's pregnant only four days after the show has ended (EDC ran June 8-10) and is already tracking down the
We reached out to the lady-with-a-baby but had yet to hear back.
In the meantime, let this be a lesson, kiddies: Fictional or not, bathroom sex at your favorite music festival does not make for a better civilization or, for that matter, an ideal situation for passionate love-making.
Think twice or, at least, put a lid on it.
Anyway, if you ever find yourself in this position, you could always name her Ecstasy.
[Update 3:53 p.m.]: The poster (a guy, it seems) got back to us and admitted:
It was a joke. I got it from a posting off of the best of craigslist side.
Looks like it was a play on this infamous Chicago Craiglist ad (with similar language) from spring in which a Motorhead/Megadeath concert attendee says she was also raw dogged and/or gagged in the heat of the moment.
