The Anatomy of the Adamgasm

Lambert's performance in Vancouver

Adamgasm: Definition/(n). The peak of one's sexual excitation caused by anything that involves Adam Lambert and his ultra sexiness.


You probably didn't hear it here first, but you've most likely heard it. It's a term from the urban dictionary describing an experience related to a certain idol named Adam Lambert. The American Idol runner up is doing just that....running up the charts, and driving his tweeter/facebook/myspace fans straight up the flagpole and into stellar orbit. And they're happy to be waving his flag. Not since Elvis or the Beatles has there been such a frenzy of excitement. Though I must confess, I don't endorse the comparison to previous idols; it doesn't do anyone justice. And this one in particular is in a league all his own. He has earned a separate designation.

"Glambert", I believe...

As for the anatomy of the Adamgasm, we look to the essence of Adam Lambert and his wide appeal to man and beast alike. Start with the Rolling Stone magazine cover where Lambert left a respectable portion of the population breathless with snake envy. Since then, almost every other part of his anatomy has been scrutinized, sending his devotees on the quest for oxygen and cold showers. His public appearances have sparked a near riot with young and old, gay and straight, and more than a few caught somewhere in between. He's even left some confused about their own image of sexuality.

Adam Lambert is redefining everything.

Whether you like him or not, his talent and influence cannot be denied. He's commanded some serious attention, and a lot of people are waiting to see and hear what this wonderlust has in his glittery bag of tricks. Unpredictable and devilishly aware of his own sexual power, he entices the masses with seemingly little effort. This guy could make mopping the floor a carnal experience. Men and women of all ages and orientations are showing up to the American Idol concerts just to witness Adam unleash himself from the confines of television censorship. As he recently twittered before a show in San Jose..."dance with me and I'll set you free..."

Get the dancing shoes on and attend one of these gigs. What you'll see are thousands of unabashed, shrieking admirers ready to "dance" the night away with Adam. Frenzied followers of the glambert tribe also patiently stand outside venues in hopeful anticipation of a mere glimpse, an autograph, or a personal encounter with the man himself. Early reports indicate that he has graciously attended some "meet and greets" with his fans expressing excitement and gratitude for his rapid fire success.

What a nice guy.

There is an interesting dichotomy to Adam Lambert, though, that is worthy of exploring. His persona offstage is that of a good-natured, unassuming, considerate, and modest type of fellow.

Onstage however, all hell breaks loose.

Right on cue, he frees the slick, hip thrusting, microphone straddling glam-boy, and storms the stage with the intensity of a hurricane leaving everyone in its wake. For the dancing, you get powerful, rhythmic moves that can only be performed by a member of the sexual elite. The songs are delivered in perfect pitch, and with a guttural cry here and there for effect.

A primal call to his mates.

He has an intrinsic understanding of his own talent, and how to flaunt it. In doing so, he boldly tempts a new generation of guilty voyeurs and curious listeners to stand up and take notice.

And they have.

It's a new day in pop culture, and Adam Lambert is writing the book on cool, singing an anthem of sexual freedom, and dancing to the beat of absolute liberation.

And what does he think of the term Adamgasm?

It pleases him.

"I'm glad I'm causing people gasms", he laughs.

As if he didn't know..........

Great article. BTW, Adam already has made moping the floor a carnal experience. In Oakland he mopped up a potential safety hazard he spotted on the floor by working it into his act. Here's the video. The action starts at :45. Major Adamgazm moment.

Oh! I'm so agree with you; i swear, I never felt like before with anithing (in the showbiz or in my personal life)... Whe I saw the Adam's videos my body is full of sensations... well I can't continue, but I must to say Adamgsm is a perfet name for alll this sensations. And your are so right about Adam offstage... he is so natural, modest, honest and a very nice person, never he criticized to anyone and he is so politically correct, I'm proud to be a Glambert!!

Greetings form Latin America (here we are many Latin Glamberts!)

Oh my Jennifer, you so captured it!! It's an Adamgasim. There are so many men I have heard from who are flustered and questioning the whole concept of sexuality. This guy is going to redefine how we all think. He is driving women nuts!! Gene Simmons predicted the demise of him because he was so forthcoming in the RollingStone but it had the opposite effect. Women and men love him 10 times more. Go to You tube and look up Kiss and Tell. This is one of his songs that he wrote. Look at the one that prints the lyrics across the screen. He is saying everything right there. This guy is driving me crazy!!

Thank you Adamfangasim (love the name). Glad you enjoyed the article. I addressed my feelings about Gene Simmons under the comments section of another article I wrote about Adam (Sexed for Success). I will look into the "Kiss and Tell" video. Thanks!

What a great hub! I enjoyed your descriptive verses and how you tied everything together.

I loved his performance on Idol this year. I'm sad he didn't win. I just stared at the TV that night after they announced Kris as the winner.

I look for great things from Adam for sure. I wrote a couple of hubs about this amazing artist myself, check em out and let me know what you think. I also did some drawings of him and a couple of other celebs.

Thanks again this was great!
