No Teabagging Beyond This Point (Part 1)

teabag

Face it.  It’s happened to you.  If you’re a gamer of any shape or form, you know what teabagging is, and if you play any shooters, you’ve been the victim of teabagging.  Maybe you are a teabagger.  In any case, I invite you to consider reading whether or not you play video games at all—hey, you might just learn a thing or two about us gamers.

I’ll start by saying that I hate teabagging.  It is my least favorite facet of online gaming. This series of posts is meant to explain why I hate it, and maybe (am I too hopeful?) stop some gamers from teabagging ever again.

 

What IS Teabagging?

Teabagging is a sexual act.  It involves a male putting their sack clackers nuts bags scrunchies swingers berries testicles in the face (usually, the mouth) of another person. 

In gaming, however, it is the act of crouching over the body (usually, face) of someone you’ve killed.  It’s basically a big “I’ve pwned you”.

 

History of Teabagging

The question is:  how did teabagging begin in video games, anyway?  Obviously, there’s no telling who the very first person to ever teabag was.  However, the first time teabagging became more than something whispered about in bedrooms was in John Water’s 1998 movie PeckerHere is the clip:

After that, teabagging became something of a fetish along with bondage and S&M.  But in 2003, the connotations of teabagging changed with the release of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon.  Teabagging became almost ritualistic in gaming; any game that allows you to crouch will have teabaggers.

Now, in 2010, there are presumably hundreds of video games that allow teabagging.  Mostly, however, teabagging is an act that is done online, with other gamers, rather than with NPCs (non-playing characters).  The game series most famous for teabagging is Ubisoft’s Halo series. 

 

No Teabagging!

Since I think this post is getting a little too long, I’m going to end it here.  Part II will include the reasons why teabagging is—well—stupid, including the pointlessness of it, the reality of the act, and thefactthatonlywhinyandcocky12yearoldsaretheonlyoneswhodoit!—oh wait! I’m saving that rant for next time.  In the next couple of days I’ll be posting Part II, so keep your eyes peeled!
