We've been catching up with metal bands and fans all over to get their best mosh pit stories. This week Rob Barrett of death metal legends Cannibal Corpse recalls an X-rated encounter that occurred nearly twenty years ago, during the Chris Barnes days. Apparently, the idea of bloody ejaculate is a potent aphrodisiac.

A funny pit story comes to mind. I think it was ’93, which must have been “Tombs of the Mutilated” tour. It might have been “The Bleeding.” It was definitely when [Chris] Barns was in the band. I believe it was in Texas, maybe in San Antonio. It was a long time ago, but I remember there was a couple, standing in the front barrier, hanging out, banging their heads, giving the metal sign. We started playing “I Cum Blood” and you could tell they were fucking. This guy was behind the girl and they were getting into it. You could just tell what was going on. They were making their faces, the doing-it faces. Everybody has their own. It was kind of obvious because I noticed the people around them were looking down and trying to figure it out. I asked the guys if they had seen that couple screwing during our set. As far as I remember, they didn’t get kicked out. That’s the first pit story that comes to mind because I thought it was hilarious!

Best I could do was put my hand down my girl's (not dating at the time) pants during a mushroomhead show in allentown, pa while the room was mostly dark and show her a good time. Damn clubs and their security.
