Finnish rocker VILLE VALO is so terrified of sexually predatory groupies, he sometimes wishes he is gay.

The HIM frontman is stunned by how forward and liberated female fans are.

He says, "The overt sexuality of groupies shocks me.

"It feels odd that people think they can just sleep with us. We actually think, sometimes, in the band, that it would all be a lot easier if we were all gay because what better than going on stage having just sucked each other off - we'd all be so happy.

"But you know, hairy balls are not really my thing."
