This is called, in the post, a real ice breaker. Hmmmm. We think if you don’t know the person you’re drinking with, you really ought to think twice. But that’s just us…
The site that gave us the definition of body shots is http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=body+shot, and this newest wrinkle, as it were, in hooking is this: “The most common shot is tequila because this involves licking some salt off the holder of the shot first and then taking the lime wedge from this persons mouth afterwards. Any shot will do, however. The key to this type of shot is that there are two consenting adults involved.” Ladies, and we use the term like they do – loosely – place a shot between their breasts or lie on the bar and place it in their navels. Guys place the shot in the top of their pants or lie on the bar and place it in their navels.
With us so far? Well, caveat emptor, because http://www.menshealth.com/health/your-dirty-sexy-belly-button provides some lowdown on the dirty: “Researchers analyzed skin samples from 66 men and women’s belly buttons. The disgusting results: The average belly button has 67 different species of bacteria living in it, and two samples tested positive for archea, a rare single-cell organism commonly found in hot springs and deep sea vents never before found on humans. (The researchers reported that one of the samples came from a man who hadn’t showered or bathed in several years!)”
Just sayin’. But if you’re hellbent on getting trashed (yeah, those double entendres just keep on comin’”), here’s another take on the body shot par-tay.
“You don’t have to be a Florida-based freshman gone wild to witness or enjoy a body shot. It turns out, the act of consuming a shot of alcohol off the surface someone’s skin is alive and well here in Brew City. People like Milwaukee’s Cara Johnston can attest.”
Cara is quoted as saying, “I admit it: I did one at The Mad Planet for my bachelorette party. It was fun. And kinda messy. I got salt in my underwear. I’m not sure how that happened exactly.”
