About Me
I came to the U.S. at age of 12 with my mother. We settled in sunny Florida, which was quite a contrast to Minsk. I have always been fascinated by sex and relationships. Sex Secrets is where I share sex advice, experiences, news, and sometimes a little humor. If you have a question about sex that you prefer not to post in the comments, you can email me at svetlanaivano(at)yahoo.com.

Director John Waters on the Origins of "Teabagging"

The “Tea Party” protests have brought the term teabagging into the mainstream, much to the delight of smirking, corporate media pundits, who dismiss political protest with adolescent double entendre. Director John Waters claims to have been the first to popularize the term in his film Pecker.

There’s been a lot of talk of “teabagging” lately. Conservative anti-tax advocates in the United States have been organizing “tea party” protests, fashioned after the colonial-era protests of British rule. In doing so, they and the right-wing TV punditards who cheer these spectacles on for ratings have ranted about “teabagging,” and the desire to “teabag Barack Obama” and such, without apparent knowledge of the word’s more common street use.

More recently, news anchors and bloggers have giggled knowingly over that sexual reference, but nobody has acknowledged how the word first entered popular American slang.

I’ll tell you how. John Waters. Watch video clip from Pecker

    Thank you, Svetlana, for spreading the word about teabagging. Follow the link for a cute video of go-go boys (partially clothed).

  • Svetlana Ivanova says:

    You’re welcome, Vickie. My boyfriend tried John Waters’ version of teabagging last night – dragging his testicles across my forehead – and, I have to say, we both prefer the British definition of the term.
