My favorite evening of Fantasy Fest is thursday. Toga night!
The voyeur in me comes out.
Before describing the gritty details, a brief toga history.
The toga is a garment of ancient Rome. White cloth. Drapped over the shoulders and around the body.
The toga and Rome cover many years. Modes of dress changed. What is set forth is generally what was the case.
Initially, the toga was worn with no undergarments. Romans were frugal. Then a garment underneath became the style. The tunic.
The toga was formal wear for men. Like wearing a suit today. The ladies initially wore togas, also. As time went on, they moved from the toga to a long Greek type gown. Except for prostitutes. Prostitutes wore togas at all times.
Thursday night during Fantasy fest is toga time!
Many will attire themselves in togas. More females than males. Many of the ladies wear nothing beneath the togas.
The event takes place in Sloppy Joe’s and outside on the street in front of Sloppy’s. The crowd overwhelming. Spectators/voyeurs and toga wearers.
A game is played. Generally on the street. A lady will be encircled by a group of men. Beads come into play. The men will want the lady to show her breasts. She will negotiate for beads. When an acceptable number has been arrived at, she will lower her toga and exhibit her breasts.
The negotiation then moves to her genital area. The bead cost higher. The negotiation concluded, the lady will lift her toga and show everyone the down under.
Next, the derriere. The butt brings the most beads. Very heavy negotiations. An acceptable number arrived at, the lady lifts her toga and exhibits her butt.
The exhibitions are not swift. The men get their beads’ worth. The ladies thrilled to show all.
Ten to fifteen of these negotiations are ongoing simultaneously for hours.
Note, women of all ages involved.
As mentioned yesterday, sex is absolutely prohibited during Fantasy Fest. There seems to be an exception. At 3-4 in the morning, the togas come off and the sexes engage. I only know this from word of mouth and photos. I could never stay up that late, even for sex.
My yesterday began with lunch at Sandy’s Cafe. Followed by a manicure at 1 with Tammy.
Initially, I was Tammy’s only customer. I asked, “All this overhead for me?”
Stopped at Walgreens on the way home. Finally got my flu shot.
Last night, Blue Macaw for 2 hours. I wanted to get out. I have been staying in evenings trying to finish a book I seem to have been writing forever.
Terri was singing. Donna with her, of course. Chatted a while with Doug. Tuesday was tutu night. Male and females so attired all over town. Doug had been out and about. Wore a kilt in place of a tutu. Preserved his masculinity. Correctly wore nothing under the kilt. Said he spent the evening mooning everyone.
Lynda and Bob Frechette came in. First time at Blue Macaw. I sat with them a while. Two of the best people in Key West. Involved, well known, loved.
Two drinks and I was on my way home. It was only 8 o’clock.
Now for a most important and disturbing item. The bombs discovered yesterday. Unquestionably, terrorism. National terrorism. I suspect one of our own out to hurt certain of his/her fellow citizens.
I believe without question the bombs the result of Trump’s violent rhetoric. His anger and hatred relentless. The damage attempted by the bombs an inevitable event. Trump’s words the motivation.
It has to stop. It will not as long as Trump continues his destructive ways. He will. He may have toned down a bit last night. He will not be able to keep his words down. Not his nature. In fact, I found his words last night more mocking than a direction to calm down, stop.
Next will come action in the streets. Not mere demonstrations. Clashes.
Actual revolution a possibility. I have been suggesting such might occur for a while.
Hard to believe. In the United States?
We continue to live in the Germany of the 1930’s. Everyone, beginning with Trump, put the brakes on!
Enjoy your day!
Lou, is Trump the problem, or is it really those people who support him?
Man has inner dark feelings that do not surface unless motivated. Trump is the motivating force for those who follow him. He encourages the worst in them.
Do you think these guys (like Trump) can ever be stopped without first stopping those who support him in the first place?
I am wondering which “Sandy’s” you are referring to these days?
Sandy’s Cafe. The new place. Inside eating.
Democrats are making a big mistake by allowing themselves to be provoked into any form of violence by Trump and his followers. They should be keeping to the high road at all times and ignore Republicans who refer to them as “snowflakes” and such terms that imply that they are wimps. To do otherwise is to play right into their hands.
I don’t think so. You’re never going to win a crooked card game by being nice. Republicans would like nothing more than NOT to be challenged on any of their shenanigans.
Trump supporters placing bombs?? Let’s do the rundown:
1) Dems increasingly acting out, forming mobs scenes
2) Dems livid that they are referred to as mobs
3) Right on cue, and just before election, Dems targeted with bombs, all targeting the most well-known libs, with bombs that are easily discovered before anyone is hurt
Hmmm, yeah, I’m convinced. It’s a Trump supporter doing it.
Hey you freak – he’s a registered Republican. You were wrong again !!!!!!!!!
Total BS and complete nonsense.
!) It is the crackpot right (Republicans) who are saying Democrats are acting out and forming mob scenes which isn’t true at all.
2) It is crackpot right Republicans who are referring to Democrats as forming mobs, which just isn’t true.
3) The “right on cue” with just before an election there’s an October surprise is a long held Republican trick, like with Willie Horton, Clinton Emails, Caravans in Honduras and so many more.
It’s always the Republicans who like to tell you about what the other side is doing, usually after they cause it. It’s an old and common Republican trick.
Sure looks to me like it’s the Republicans, comrade! Let’s see if they allow an investigation to go forward.
Looks to me it might have been someone on the right who thought everyone would think it was the muslims who did this and blame it on them for political gain just before the elections. Maybe it was George Soros, he’s a muslim isn’t he?
Don’t bother with this guy, it’s just a troll repeating a Russian meme going around everywhere today. Republicans can’t think for themselves can they?
No matter who is responsible for these bombs, it is terrorism and apparently domestic terrorism. Wonder how long before that will be admitted.
