The always brilliant and provocative Tracy Clark-Flory wrote an eye-opening article for Salon this week on the practice of Mamading, in which a girl will give numerous men blow jobs in a bar in return for a free drink.
Here’s how it works: a row of men on barstools will pull out their cocks and a half naked women makes her way through the row, giving each of the fully clothed (except for limp cock hanging out) a few sucks. Bar patrons watch and cheer her on.
Her reward – a free drink or two.
I am a big fan of sexual openness. I have blogged frequently that we need to dispense with our puritanical views of sexual expression. We should be honest and open – rather than embarrassed and hidden – about our sexual desires.
But blowing a line of guys is – for the vast majority – not about sexual desire.
I have to admit, I don’t know what it is about. Why would a girl — albeit a very drunk girl — voluntarily do this. Is it for attention? Is it out of coercion? Is it ambivalence?
Help me out — how is this a trend?
