Even professional discomaniacs like Andy Warhol, Bianca Jagger or Halston can’t spend all their time boogeying for the paparazzi, checking the door to see who else has been let in or wondering if they are still chic. The latest diversion for the weary of foot, eye and mind is a pair of outsize dice whose sides bear words that produce combinations like “I’m dry” or “You’re hot,” plus a few more explicitly suggestive slogans. A roll of these dice is supposed to be sexy and titillating, and their inventor, Warhol crony Billy Lee, has persuaded the likes of Bob Dylan and Jerry Rubin, as well as the usual disco patrol, to give them a shake. At $4.99 a pair, though, Hot Dice seem like a rather decadent giggle, especially since they would not be of much use for anything else but dirty Parcheesi.
