Let me preface this entry by stating that it will be rather short and serve as a background to Part II, which will delve deeper into the dynamics of sexual activity with people you are unfamiliar with while away on vacation…. by way of survey and Q&A (since I can assure you I know nothing about it personally).
Miami Beach, 2014.
Like every other time I’m in South Beach, I rented a bike to go for a ride. On 17th and Collins, I took a brief break (after nearly falling on my ass) when two women approach me. As I pivot to get back to my ride, one of them turn ever so slightly to say…
“Can you ride me?”
Nonetheless, I smile, laugh, and continue on my bike ride. Unbeknownst to me, I happen to be in the area during Pride weekend (not that it matters, but still).
And no, I did not take her up on her offer. Can’t blame homegirl for trying though…I was looking cute.
I experienced another example of sexual innuendo and folly in Nairobi at a club. I was with two friends I made (see “No Sleep in Nairobi Part I“) just listening to music and talking when a rather, “strong” looking woman approached us. I don’t recall her name, but she was plump and intimidating. She looked as though she could be a Bertha, so I’m gonna call her Bertha. Yep. Her name was Bertha.
Standing nearly between my male friend’s legs, she asks whether we are enjoying ourselves. We respond that we were, then in turn ask her the same. She turns to me, rubs my back a little, and says
“Waiting for the kids to leave.”
Looking around nervously, we reply “well what happens then?”
“The adults will play.”
I was afraid to ask what she meant by such a statement, and I’m afraid to even think of what it means now. In case you have your doubts as to the validity of this story, I present exhibit A…or should I say, S.E.X. I am in constant contact with my friends while on vacation and I informed them of this little conversation.
There was no need to pray for forgiveness as we hightailed it outta there before “playtime” commenced.
So why bring up these encounters? The answer is simple.
People like getting it in. Apparently, a good portion of those people like to either get in while on vacation, or get it in with people they know are on vacation.
I want to discuss it.
As a former flight attendant, I have been propositioned by men, women, straight women with a little alcohol in their system, co-workers, you name it. I’ve been invited to watch um, activities, and I’ve even been mistaken for a prostitute in Thailand.
Don’t ask. Some other time.
I’ve been asked more than once whether or not I have ever taken anyone up on their offer. To answer it frankly, HELL NO. I mean, I have encountered plenty of people that I found very attractive (and while I’m not a lesbian, I can appreciate a nice booty and/or pretty face). However, I just never had it in me to be so intimate with someone I didn’t know in any capacity, or just met days ago. Perhaps I’m missing out, I’m not sure. I’ll tell you what though. I’d like to pick the brains of some people who have “participated.” Please stay tuned for Part II
Sorry if you thought this post would be about me and my “sexcapades” btw. No such thing for me, being that I assume that everyone has Herpes…and not the kind of almost everyone does have either.
