Fancy Wearing a Merkin?

I never knew that such things as merkins existed at all until recently, but why am I not surprised, bearing in mind the pantheon of sexual behaviours and accoutrements?

So what is a merkin, I hear you ask.

Well a merkin is a pubic wig. It has quite a history going back to the seventeenth century at least. Merkins had a real practical use at a time when lice were rife. The well-to do especially used to shave from head to foot and then wear wigs. Pubic hair wigs became quite fashionable, especially among the dilatentes and sexually freewheeling. Prostitutes found that a merkin could cover up sores acquired in the line of duty that would otherwise be bad for business.

So you might think that the merkin is just some quirky thing from the days of Hogarth and Sheridan, but not so. There is a minority fashion for very pretty pubic wigs, like the one in the pic. In some places where local laws prohibit total nudity exotic dancers wear flesh coloured panties with a "pubic bush" at the front, and there is even a literary connection.....

In a sci fi story called "The Barbie Murders," a group of women give up individuality (and sex) and undergo surgery to become perfect nonsexual beings resembling Barbie dolls. This involves losing genitals, pubic hair, etc. One "Barbie" goes back to being a woman for a night, painting on nipples and using a merkin.

(btw ...... why can I never escape from Barbie in my blog? )

The rhyme below is supposed to be read with an English West Country peasant accent. Drink five pints of good old scrumpy (rough, strong local cider ...... if it doesn't leap out of the glass occasionally and punch you on the nose it's not the real thing!) and say "Ooooooh Arrrrrrrrrr! Oive got a pig and three chickens to sell, moi darlin, moi dear!" and you'll have the accent right for this piece.

My naughty sweetheart’s one for lurkin’
Snook up on me when I was jerkin’,
Lifts her skirt to show her merkin.
“Come on,” she says, “where’s your pink gherkin?
I trust it’s hard and fully workin’,
So come inside ‒ I need a ferkin’”
I see her tits and they are perkin,
She turns me on when she starts surkin,
And we was kinky ‒ we was quirkin,
I ferked her hard ‒ was really burkin.
But sad to say when I got squirkin
I stained her brand new fancy merkin

And now she’s in a bad mood with me!.

haiku for a merking

A soft furry rug
Laid over the mystery
Of all her desire

You cannot conceive the many without the one.

So, what's a fuckin' 'merkin' taste like.. do they come in watermellon flavor?.... or maybe day-old trout?... or should you take them off before getting down?
Do you Brits actually call your "johnson" a "gherkin"? .. or is that a "jerkin"...
hope you appreciate the word play.
PS: Sorry I ain't been around for awile.

Great to see you again Lenny.

Hmmmmmmm! I think as regards taste it's worth moving down below the merkin, but I'm sure the creative shouldn't have too much trouble flavouring them. Or we could make edible merkins out of ricepaper - now there's an idea! A pervy business venture.....

I thought a gherkin was sufficiently Phallic to fit in the rhyme ..... more lines than words to fit them, lol

Well it started off in a conversation among friends about something totally unrelated and ended up as a blog with a little online research along the way.

I thought the butterfly was a gorgeous tattoo. Either way, very pretty!

The test, Frangi, is to feel it and find it is felt.

So tell did you run across this bit of knowledge? and you are wonderfully twisted...thanks for the enlightenment and laugh...

kind thoughts,

warmandsexy52 replies on 7/9/2006 2:25 pm:
Moonfire, it started off as a conversation when someone found the surname "Merkin" funny. The rest was a mixture of a journey of discovery and a somewhat pervy imagination.

And thank you for the sweetest accusation of twistedness a man could ever hope to have. Awwwwwww! Hugs!

I read your post LT and am delighted at what a good weekend you've had. Mine has been pretty relaxed, which I pretty much needed - the last couple of weeks being as hectic as they've been.
