“Aw, man, suck my dick!”
Now, there are a few scenarios when this might be the response to something (right along with, “French kiss my ass!” and, “Fuck you!” and, back in the day, it was a bit of an insult that often had several additional responses, oh, like fists flying, blood being shed, more insults being flung, or being summarily ignored.
I discovered some rather pointed comebacks to such epithets sent my way, like, “Is that an offer?” or, “Sorry, but you’re not my type…,” or, “Here? In front of everyone?” If you weren’t good at verbal sparring – playing “The Dozens” (and, no, I don’t know why it’s called that), you could be verbally eaten alive and embarrassed especially if you got into this situation in front of witnesses.
Today, uttering something like this could be construed as an offer of and for sex; one day, I was having a mild disagreement with one of the fellas and was ‘winning’ the discussion when he said, “Aw, blow me, man…” and I laughed… until he let me know he was serious – he wanted his dick sucked. Didn’t happen but that made me pay closer attention to what guys were saying. On a subsequent day, I’d forgotten the mental note I left myself about this and during some good natured shucking and jiving, one guy said, “Suck my dick!” and I responded with, “Only if you suck mine first!”
And he said, “Okay!” and had his gear down around his ankles a split second later. Yeah, it did happen that time but I was kicking myself for my lack of situational awareness. Not that it was unpleasant but that wasn’t the point, which was being very careful about saying these things around guys (in particular) because you never know when the next words out of his mouth will be insults or he really wants you to slide your dick in his ass or put his dick in your mouth. At the worst, you can find yourself caught up in an uncomfortable moment; I mean, what do you say to a guy when you tell him to suck your dick and he starts reaching for your belt buckle and/or zipper?
There was a time when you knew who you could play such word games with and who you couldn’t and there are moments when such phrases are tossed your way and the best response is a blank stare…
In a somewhat unrelated change of topic, I was thinking about being asked why men would have sex with each other and while the usual answers flashed through my mind, I got to thinking about bisexuality’s roots so I asked Google a question: “When was the first recorded instance of bisexuality?” One reference I found said that, originally, “bisexual” referred to hermaphroditism, where a person could have the, ah, sexual equipment of both men and women but, in the late 1800s, was changed to the definition we know of today.
I even found a reference to ancient Japan and in the time of the samurai, where pedastery was part of a rookie samurai’s training under a more experienced samurai master although the authors of both references made note that any earlier references to bisexuality were lost – one could probably read that as being suppressed, too. After reading these items, I got the impression that the prohibitions against homosexuality and bisexuality were put in place because these behaviors were known and had to be suppressed because, uh, well, no babies would come from such sexual unions and, perhaps given our warlike nature, it was something to keep the troops somewhat sated between bouts of raping, pillaging, and woman stealing.
I did note that one reference spoke only to male bisexuality; not one word was mentioned about females who might like a slice of the damp when needed. It kinda made me frown because by omitting female bisexuality, the stigma against male bisexuals are being kept in place.
Here’s the URLs for the mentioned references in case you wanna read them:
