Teabagging



Teabagging is a slang term for the act of a man placing his testicles, specifically the scrotum, in the mouth[1] or face of another person, often in a repeated in-and-out motion.[2] The practice vaguely resembles dipping a tea bag into a cup of tea[3][4][5]

The practice

An example of teabagging is shown in the movie Pecker by John Waters,[6][7] which showed a male stripper repeatedly striking a man's forehead, and purportedly introduced the practice of teabagging to a wider audience.[6]

It has also been reported as a practice in hazing[8] among athletic teams. This is described in an article by Robert DeKoven from Gay and Lesbian Times.[9]

One such story involved what school officials termed a hazing incident, which involved three varsity wrestlers and three coaches at ... High School near Chicago. The school suspended the wrestlers and coaches for a hazing incident that involved the “tea-bagging” of several freshman wrestlers.

Cyd Zeigler Jr. reports that the incident occurred on a bus trip home last year on Dec. 1. ... According to the Daily Southtown, the three varsity wrestlers pulled freshmen, one by one, to the back of the bus. There, two of the boys held each boy down as the third boy shoved his testicles in the freshman’s face.

In the media

In video games

  Simulations of teabagging are often used in video games, specifically first person shooters such as Halo as a form of victory dance or show of ownership after having killed an opponent. This is typically done by crouching repeatedly over the dead "victim's" face. [10]

Big Brother Australia

Big Brother Australia 2006 was thrown into controversy when two housemates, Michael "Ashley" Cox and Michael "John" Bric were removed from the house after performing a turkey slap[11](slapping their penises) on female housemate Camilla Halliwell.

On the July 6 2006 episode of the AFL Footy Show, the opening skit parodied the Big Brother incident, with Sam Newman depicted in the house, lying on a bed, with James Brayshaw. Newman exclaimed, "You're not going to turkey slap me are you?", at which point Brayshaw unleashed a frozen turkey and slapped Newman across the face. A skit on the July 7 2006 episode of The Chaser's War on Everything featured co-host Julian Morrow asking people what they thought of "turkey slapping," and then presented them with an actual frozen turkey to slap. This episode was replayed on August 1, 2007 as part of the 10 week repeats for the show.[12]

Miscellaneous

  • One track on rapper Ludacris' 2004 album Chicken & Beer is a skit labeled "T Baggin'". It is a parody of phone messages that require the dialer to press a number for a service. It says, "If you woke up with a hangover and a pair of hairy balls on your forehead, press "7". You pressed "7". You've just been victimized and introduced to a moral crime known as "teabaggin'". We suggest you probably hang up the phone, beat the ass of any white guys you hung out with

last night, and find and destroy all photos before they appear on the Internet. Thank you for calling. Good luck. Goodbye."

  • On the television series Sex and the City, Samantha Jones, played by Kim Cattrall, explained the practice of teabagging to her friends quite blatantly and loudly in a crowded restaurant in the episode "A Woman's Right to Shoes".[1]
  • When Robert Knepper, whose character on Prison Break is nicknamed T-Bag, appeared on Live with Regis and Kelly on 30 January 2007 he began to recount how he learned what the name meant only to be cut off by an obviously uncomfortable Kelly Ripa who quickly threw to a commercial break.[13]
  • We Are Klang's song First Kiss contains the line "... and a lollipop man started teabagging me" followed by a mimed description.[14]

Other uses

  • In windsurfing and other watersports, an individual is "teabagged" when they fall beneath the water of a choppy wave.[6]
