Where does disco stick come from?

Disco stick is a lyric in the Lady Gaga song “LoveGame.” The single, which climbed #3 on Billboard charts in 2009, is about love, dancing, fame, and sex.

Lady Gaga told Rolling Stone that disco stick was one of her “very thoughtful metaphors for cock.” She said she came up with the term on the spot while in a nightclub (disco) and told a dance partner she was attracted to (stick) “I wanna ride on your disco stick.” The next day she said wrote “LoveGame” in the studio in just four minutes.

Whenever Gaga performs the song, she carries an actual light-up, rock-candy-esque scepter to represent a disco stick, as featured in the video for “LoveGame.” The design changes each year and has included a star on top. Disco stick has inspired LED accessories, adult toys, and even a highlighter pen.

Outside the US, the song was a smash hit from Israel to New Zealand and inspired many remixes, including one featuring Marilyn Manson, all helping to spread disco stick as a slang term for “penis” among her Little Monsters.
