In honor of FAT TUESDAY, I wondered about flashing, and where that started. Yesterday one of my professors told the class the story of his friend’s daughter. After a night of drinking she thought it would be amusing to flash some men walking down the street, she was in a car and as she flashed from the window she fell out and died. Sad. So where and why do women do this? After doing some internet research I have found these answers..
They are drunk (obvious), guys like it (duh), and for beads (really?). I was looking for a history of the flashing and the best answer I found is that flashing is something “spring breakers” have started to do, it is not a part of the tradition of Mardi Gras but has become a part of what happens. Honeslty, its not beautiful or classy.Women don’t flash your bobbies. Men don’t barter beads for boobies. Does anyone know the history or the generation that flashing arose?
